3 Ways To Help Stop Trump’s Muslim Ban

By | Blog, Politics | No Comments

I wasn’t surprised that the Muslim ban happened, I was actually surprised that Trump didn’t write this executive action day one of his presidency.  This right here? Is the start of a Muslim holocaust, and as someone who has basic human decency and of someone is who is a religious minority makes all of this very scary to watch.  I actually got so anxious watching my Facebook feed last night that I had to turn off Facebook altogether. And although a Judge has put a momentary pause to the ban, it can easily be reenacted.dade

The time for action is now, and if you are like me who due to varied issues unable to go the protests that I think are still currently going on several airports in more than few major cities right now, then this is a way for you to help with the effort against this horrendous ban.

1 . Call You Representatives.

Since Trump’s Election,   I have been calling my representatives every week about the many horrendous things that Trump and his administration has inflicted on us.  If you don’t know how to call you representatives here is

House. gov to find your Representatives. 

You can also use this site 5 Calls to call your Representatives. 

And if you need scripts you can use this page on Indivisible Austin’s sites.  

I also found this article really helpful in teaching me the most effective way to call my representatives. 

2. Sign This Petition

Please take some time out to sign this petition on Moveon.org. 

3. Donate to the ACLU

You can do so here. Also, since I am a starving artist and I personally have no money to donate I’m an offering a free custom eBook cover to anyone who donates. Just send a copy of the receipt or a screencap to gigikiersten@gmail.com

We Have Just Shot Ourselves In The Foot!

By | Blog, Politics | No Comments

So against my better judgment, I went to Facebook to promote my blogs as any good blogger would do, and I saw the Donald Trump was trending. And I just got this sinking feeling in my stomach that the electors didn’t do what we all begged them to do, what is their FREAKING jobs to do!

They actually confirmed Donald J. Trump as president of the United States. They allowed this madman, this imbecile, this DEMAGOGUE as leader of the free world! And as a black queer woman, I can’t get over the fact that America apparently hates me and everyone who looks like me this much.

A part of me just wants to lay down in my bed and just sob. Because we have elected a fascist in training, and a puppet of Russia as president. And I can’t help but feel that like everyone else that we currently have the sword of Damocles hanging in over our heads. Let’s be clear: He’s going to destroy our country and no one gives a crap.

And you white liberals who are thinking “Oh, Gigi is just exaggerating things.” I want you guys to just look at what he has said so far, especially. the rhetoric that has come out of his mouth since the start of this election cycle. And god help me, his plans for the country scares me out of my fucking in mind.

All I can say to the people who are GLBTQ+, religious and/or racial minorities: to just hold on and stand up for each other. I say to my Democrats who were in office, you better stand up and fight because if you don’t, you are part of the problem, and I will vote your asses out of office. And I’m not the only Democrat who feels that exact same way.

I just want to hug everyone who feels like I do and tell them not to give up. Because despite the fact, that I just want to cry and scream and then lay down and die. But that’s not my style. When life kicks me down, I’m the type of person to get right back up and kick life right back in the nuts! So I strongly urge you guys to do the same and get up and FUCKING FIGHT!

I also urge for those people who can afford it, to give their money in their time to the organizations who are going to be advocating for those people who will be directly targeted by Trump’s administration. So, I have nothing else to say so, I’m going to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, and a hopefully better new year.

By | Blog, Politics | No Comments

Just hours after Trump’s victory speech, people have already drawn up petitions to protest him getting into office. Even though 26 state officials have been recalled, according to National Conference of State Legislature, it’s impossible for a president to be booted by petition. That hasn’t stopped people form trying though. Here’s a list of all the petitions out there that you can sign if you’re unhappy with the way the 2016 election has played out.

Do Not Go Quietly Into That Good Night

By | Blog, Politics, Uncategorized | No Comments

So the election is over, and last night I was praying for that the results of the election was a nightmare and I would wake up to a sane and just world. Apparently, the real world is neither just or sane.  So two months we will be signing in President Trump.  But you know what I briefly considered moving to Canada.

First off, I can’t afford it. I’m a poor black artist,  But also I’m not going away, I’m not going to be quiet. I’m here and queer and black and I will be shouting about it. I’m going to march in the streets with my queer brothers and sisters and my black brother and sisters. I will not like tyranny win.

But I want to you guys to not give up. To not go quietly into that good night. We bide our time, we will organize, we will march until they are no more people to talk about it.We went through Bush, and we can get through this.

Just please, please vote in the midterms and keep your chins up.

Donald Trump

Congratulations Donald Trump For Being America’s Douchebag In Chief!

Seriously, this freaking election cycle has worn me down so much that I had to literally had to reinvent my entire website so I could rant ad nasueum about the gross stupidity and bat-shittery of Donald Trump and his campaign of lunatics. It’s like the world decided that I didn’t have enough assholes to talk about right now *cough* Cassandra Clare *cough

But no, a bunch of dimwitted angry white people decided to make the worst underqualified person ever to be a Republican candidate for the Presidency of  the United States . In my opinion, this shit has been a long time in coming, but I thought that maybe the Republican Party will finally get their heads out of their asses and actually listen to the 2012 election ‘Post Mortem‘ report. But  that shit just went over the Republican party’s head. I totally blame Paul Ryans, John Boehner, Reince Priebus  and Michael Steele for the current clusterfuck we are currently in. These jackasses made the disastrous decision to put the party’s money and support not behind the moderate Republicans who actually want to actually work to take this country forward, but on the assholes who want to to take us back to the freaking dark ages. That glamorous time when minorities were treated more like second class citizens.

Republican-leadership

I’m also putting a good portion of the blame on the mainstream media who normalized this asshole. I’m looking at you NBC the producers of the Apprentice, and CNN who gave this douche bag millions of dollars in free publicity.

But this weekend has to be the nuttiest part of the election so far.  I’m serious, people ignored the mountain of evidence that Donald Trump is a misogynist, racist, homophobic bigot, who by the way already has a rape case currently in legislation, but now the audio recording from ‘Acess Hollywood’ in 2005 was too much for the party of family values.

Apart of me is cackling loudly and triumphantly, because this is finally the validation that every free-thinking liberal and progressive far as the eye could see has been screaming about since at least the Convention.  Yet, it really pisses me off that the mainstream media just sat back and Donald Trump gets this far in the election.

And it’s been proven not only by the rape case, not only the way he’s perves on his own freaking daughters, the alleged rape of his two ex-wives, and now the ‘Acess Hollywood’ tapes that if Donald Trump hadn’t been a  rich white guy, he would have been in prison. Or do I need to bring up the Central Park Five case?

And the media is doing it again in my opinion. Donald Trump won the debate according to the Chris Matthews and the Young Turks, and I have two words for you guys: Fuck.You!  I have watched and read the transcripts of the debate and he might have been holding it together in the first five minutes, but after that, everything was zero policy and a bunch of word soup.

And don’t get me started on how he exploited the alleged rape victims of Bill Clinton’s for political points.  Now, I’m not saying that Bill is innocent, not at all. What I’m saying is that I don’t know the real story, because they are not enough solid facts. The feminist in me wants me to just take Juanita Broaddrick at her word, but the skeptical in me thinks about the whole impeachment circus and how staunch Republican Ken Starr was looking under every nook and cranny to find something to impeach then-President Clinton with.  And even Ken Starr really couldn’t find any hard evidence to support Broaddrick ‘s story.

However, all that distracts from the fact that it was completely irresponsible that Donald Trump would use the victim’s traumatic experiences to score cheap political points. And I find it hypocritical that Trump is screaming about Bill’s alleged rape case., he continues pretends that he empathizes with the victims when he himself denigrated the victims when the scandal first came out.  In the end, this is all about Bill Clinton, and it’s sexist and grossly unfair to judge Hilary by her husband’s actions.

In the end, All I can say is that all of us need to start rounding up everyone we  know, and get out there and VOTE!  I’m especially looking at you all you minorities.  You owe it not only yourself but your entire country to vote. Don’t let this Cheeto-dusted douchebag become our next President.
