I Write Letters

[Content Note: Bigotry.]

Dear Kirstjen Nielsen, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and Pals:

If you don't want to be heckled while dining or refused service at restaurants or treated like a pariah in the dating world or in various other ways regarded like a toxic turd, then perhaps you should consider not very publicly dedicating your life to enabling a white supremacist, nativist, patriarchal, disablist, classist, vile authoritarian regime.

Really. That's all you have to do. Don't be a fucking Nazi.

It's not like you are being denied on the basis of your immutable identities. No matter how much you caterwaul about "leftist intolerance" and try to conflate political beliefs with intrinsic characteristics, the refusal to be served because you've chosen a life of hatred, malice, and deceit is not akin to marginalized people being denied far more important things than a restaurant reservation, like healthcare and housing and jobs and bodily autonomy and marriage and civil rights.

Literally all you have to do is not be execrable scum on an internationally visible platform.

Then you can enjoy all the burgers, or whatever.

Until then, I guess you can eat cake.

No Love,
