    One, because people do this with trans folks and also because I've lived in religiously conservative societies -- Mormons are a minority and face genuinely nasty stuff.  And my worst boss ever, who had security escort the tranny out after staring incredulously at me during our entire first meeting, and my best boss ever, who was simply a brilliant and decent human being, were both Mormons.   Generalizations are really fraught.

    But: I am starting to think Romney, in addition to being a "business mormon" type fellow, is also a freakin' Republic of Gilead sort of guy.  As a trans woman I think it is possible he would pay attention to the ways LGBT rights and women's rights have been advanced by executive order over the last 40 years, and he could do his best to roll back those protections.   This diary is deeply in accord with that slowly forming impression.  

    Gah.  Now must go do something to make me happy and hopeful.

    ...j'ai découvert que tout le malheur des hommes vient d'une seule chose, qui est de ne savoir pas demeurer en repos dans une chambre.
