50 gays shot to death during Pride in a Latin club by a man who's been described by his father as "nonreligious" but "upset by men kissing." This is the deadliest shooting by a single assailant in US HISTORY. You can't buy lawn darts, and you have to register a 1 lb toy helicopter with the federal government, but an automatic weapon doesn't require that same registration. Laws are made to keep trans folk out of bathrooms and gay men can't donate blood for the PEOPLE THEY LOVE who are dying just blocks away, but sure, keep your fucking guns safe. Unfollow me if you think the 2nd amendment trumps my rights as a queer human being. Unfollow me right fucking now. I'm full of rage and heartbroken and can't stop crying, and I'm so embarrassed to live in a country that can't. get. this. simple. thing. right. This is the 7th mass shooting since Monday. The 173rd mass shooting this year, and the year is only 163 days in. Ban guns. You get grownup toys when you're responsible enough to handle them. This nation isn't. Happy Pride.
An awesome thing you can do for an author is request their new book at your local library even if you buy your own copy for yourself.
