I live IN Waukesha, WI....you have no idea how much this case effects everyone in our city. My 6th grade teacher is the Victim's Aunt. My kids attended events with the alleged attackers. The alleged attack happened 2 miles from our house in a park we often go to. It is heartbreaking that the alleged attackers (who may or may not be seriously mentally ill) are languishing in a detention center and (possibly) not getting the mental health help that they (may or may not) need.

No matter what happens in court, we are all thankful that the victim has recovered from her attack (physically) and has a great family and community support system.

Straight, White, Married, Female, upper middle class person here in a (formerly blue) Midwest State.

I'll be Ok. The Right fucking loves me.

I am going to fight, keep active, donate as much money as I can to places like the ACLU, SPLC, LAMBDA Legal, PP (among others).

I am going to speak out in support of my LGBTQ friends and coworkers and neighbors.

I am not going to let these racist fuckwads get the best of me or my friends/family/coworkers who are not white christian rich male entitled assholes.

I am going to vote in every single fucking election for people who are not white christian rich male entitled assholes.

I am going to raise my 3 kids to be progressive thinkers, to be kind, loving, tolerant and to NOT VOTE REPUBLICAN (or for a third party who only runs every 4 years as a vanity project).

I sat at my desk today, surrounded by people watching this tire fire of an event and I tried hard not to cry.

Instead I went to facebook and saw stories of friends and loved ones on their way to Washington wearing adorable pink pussycat hats by bus and train and plane and car. I was helped by knowing that WE did win in every way that actually counts and we have the numbers if we could only be better organized at the local and state level to push these mother fuckers out.

I am not moving to Canada (although I have love for my neighbors to the North). Cowards run and hide (even if the land up there looks better)...I am staying here and I am fighting.

Wisconsin (20 min west of Milwaukee) person here... will never understand why burning businesses in your own neighborhood is a rational response. if you'd come into the suburbs and burn stuff here...MAYBE that might have more of an effect...

I am so conflicted with my vote this year. My heart says "feel the Bern," my soul says "not another fucking white old man, bitch is the new black, bitches get shit done, HILARY 2016," and I feel like things would be so much better if we could have President Hilary with First Lord Mr. President Bill and VP Bernie or Head of the Consumer Protection division Bernie....and somehow I wake up and Elizabeth Warren is in charge of the country and I feel relaxed and happy... Then I wake up to living in Wisconsin where that rat fink Scott Walker is in charge of my state...and I cry.

NO! We need Russ to beat Johnson in Wisconsin for the race for Senate. Don't take my Feingold Away. He is one of the only rasy of light we have in our state right now!.

What you say to this but "I am so sorry?" I am sorry that your parents church wants to punish the "sinner" and anyone who associates with the "sinner." I am sorry, I am sorry, I am sorry.
