Hanna Brooks Olsen has some advice for feminists dating Trump supporters: Break the fuck up.
A partner who voted for and continues to support a candidate who undermines your humanity does not respect your humanity.
It’s important, too, to remember what a privilege it is to “agree to disagree,” young (probably) white feminist. Your peers who are more marginalized bear the brunt of your connivance. Continuing to date someone who undermines you (and them) tacitly permits these views to exist.
Young person, there are people in the world (of all genders!) who not only agree with your political views, but agree with your fundamental belief that you are a human being who is worth loving. There are people in the world that you can be in a relationship with who don’t make you feel like you’re “too sensitive” for getting upset over an executive order, who don’t need to be asked not to call refugees “illegals,” and who will support you in your various causes.
In short, young person, I hope you at least remember this: Don’t fuck someone whose political actions could fuck you.
