in my preschool class we’re holding “class president of the day” elections this week.  we already elected our first female president on monday, even though one of the boy’s campaign promises was to “bring jewels” to the classroom.

tuesday: we talked about the real election happening today. one child says she hopes hillary clinton wins and all of her classmates chime in with sober agreements. one boy says voting for the drumpf “would not be a very good idea.”

they elected the other female candidate today in our mock election, so she won over the jewels boy and the other boy, who said he would make bracelets for the entire class. my students are surprisingly practical, seeing as they voted for the candidate who would clean the school and help them with their work.

once president, she did do those things, but also punched one of her constituents into the sandbox, so, i mean … she’s sort of a typical politician i guess

wednesday: the children announced tensely to me that trump won the real election. one boy said, “i still don’t like him, but we can’t say we hate him, because then we would be saying we hate the president.”

i said that was true, and that saying we hate him sounds a lot like something trump would say. they nodded and continued to help the toddler class students get their snack plates to the table without dropping their apple slices.

they elected one of the girls again, so she served her second term by helping her friends button their art smocks before we made our galaxy paintings. (because if you think i’m gonna create an art lesson plan to focus any more attention on this shitshow of an election, you are wrong.)

neither of the boy candidates have stood much of a chance in this race so far. one of them came to me and said he was rethinking his campaign promises, and could he make a new poster

he got a paper and wrote a huge list of ways that he would help keep all the children safe, including reminding them to use walking feet and not to touch broken glass. then he volunteered to work in the toddler room and cleaned up all of their messes, and moved all the shelves in my room so he could clean behind them.

i’m feeling so hopeless right now, but these children remind me that there is a future and they. are. it.

thursday: today i was very pleased. our president today is the little boy who made changes to his campaign promises. he also wore tyrannosaurus rex foot slippers. when the voters were shaking his hand to congratulate him on his victory, one said, “good job, and thank you for having monster feet”

he watched everyone like a hawk to make sure they were being safe, and then spent the morning writing in his journal about how much he loves all of us and his bicycle.

via a friend of mine:
Hey folks, I just called Mayor Libby Schaaf to demand her support of undocumented immigrants in the city of Oakland.

Yesterday, Mayor Murray of Seattle made a statement saying that the city will be a sanctuary for undocumented immigrants, even if it means losing federal funding. Please call your Mayor’s office and demand similar actions of support. Deetz below.

Mayor Libby Schaaf

**hey guess what, there’s also a form ^^^ to request an appointment with the mayor

Mayor Rahm Emanuel (i know, just do it)
phone: Chicago residents dial 311, or (312) 744-5000

Mayor Bill de Blasio

[the title of an article is pictured that reads: Seattle will remain ‘sanctuary city’ for immigrants despite Trump presidency, mayor says.]

Head’s up: a sanctuary city means that the city won’t give undocumented immigrants up for deportation when the federal government demands it. The mayor San Francisco has also pledged to keep our city a sanctuary city.  Keep in mind, that Trump has specifically said he wants to cut federal funding from these cities if they continue with this policy of protecting undocumented immigrants.





Hey guys, I know that there’s a lot of fear right now but two teenage girls basically yelled at my husband from their car calling him a “Trump-loving cis-het bastard” and I am absolutely infuriated, especially because my husband voted for Hillary and is just as avidly anti-Trump as I am. 

Please don’t make assumptions about people. I am just glad he didn’t have our boys with him because I am already trying to raise two boys who will learn to know their privilege and use it to help others, but slinging unfounded insults at my husband won’t help. You cannot assume who someone supports just by their looks. I’m not asking you all to agree right now but just think before you go yelling at people at random.

Kindly signal boost this for me please because I feel like these girls are probably products of this website and I want to make sure people know that this kind of behavior isn’t okay from either side.

this didn’t happen and you voted for trump

my great-grandfather had to leave italy in the 20′s because he hit a fascist with a tuba, so if you think I am going to take this sitting down you are going to have to catch these hands and also this tuba


My post that’s going around: I keep seeing reblogs talking about how dangerous white men are, and while I agree (obviously), we need to watch other white women too.

White women are fucking dangerous. As soon as a white woman starts crying while engaging with a person of color, other white men and women get antsy and tense. If you witness white women trying to start shit with a person of color, step the fuck in. Stand with them. Especially if you are a white woman too. Engage. Shut white women down. Inform others of what’s really happening. Speak up and stand with people of color. Back up their voices.


remember when there were a few desperate Bernie holdouts that clung to the hope that maybe they could persuade delegates at the Democratic Convention to switch over to Bernie well lemme just say that all of these “Here’s how Clinton can still win the Electoral College!” plans are 100x as unrealistic

“I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend.” - Thomas Jefferson to William Hamilton, April 22, 18001

Your all fucking babies

That was probably easy for a guy who owned other people to say because he wasn’t at the other end of the pecking order

Try again

#i can’t believe thomas jefferson time traveled from the year 18001 just to say that to hamilton
