I am mad right now because before Trump left office he put a law in place that has LGBTQAI+ community no longer seen as legally valid based by saying it violates Religious Freedom Restoration Act. This will make it so organizations can legally discriminate against Queer people based of their religious beliefs. This will remove protection toward Queer people that were put in place by Obama. Queer people can be denied by medical service, adoption agency, homeless shelter, ect. Basically anything that is funded by federal money is legally allowed to discriminate against Queer people basis of religious liberty. It goes into law in February 11.

The good news is that congress can use the congressional review act to disprove of this regulation and stop it from going into effect if they get the president’s signature. Joe Biden and at least one senator are already talking about repealing the rule after his inauguration. Hopefully he will get it repealed. But until then we should spread this information and call senators to urge them to stop this rule from going into effect.
I'm so close to tears right now. I can't believe this! I wish I could help try and comfort you but this has put me in the same state. And honestly we have every right to feel this way, he just took away our rights like we aren't even considered to be human. Fuck him! This is such bs! I can not believe this, he took away the little rights we had. I'm now just terrified that I'll have to go to a hospital or any health care organization, just to be turned away because of some ignorant bigot that thinks he's god. We deserve to be treated like any other person, and I know that I, or any other member of the Lbgtqia+ community who's a resident of the us, will not stand for this. Just know that we will get through this, even if we have to fight like hell, we'll be ok. <3
HE WHAT?! I didn't know about this! I knew about Trans people and medical service and Gay people with adoption agencies, but all of us?! Can he do that? I wish I had words of comfort, but I don't. I'm so sorry. I live in the U.S too, and I just- I'm so sorry.
