    this is NOT a freaking game - real people's lives are at stake here.
    Thank you for this. This is an excellent comment.

    One important thing I think a lot of people are missing is exactly what you said: this is hurting real people. This is hurting (though the campaign itself is not coming to my state personally, to be clear) me and it's hurting my friend in Tennessee who is transgender and gay, who posted comments on this site last night about how this will affect his state.

    People who actually live in areas that are going to be hurt by anti-LGBT rhetoric, whether it's because we live in a targeted state or it's because spreading this stuff nationally creates hostile environments for us, should be listened to and taken seriously.

    This is a terrifying, really messed up thing that is really hurting people. It's going to affect community members here.
