THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — No one can tell you how to vote. If you believe a vote for Mitt Romney will serve you better, cast that ballot for him. People do high wire acts without a net all the time, after all, this is America!
But if things don’t turn out the way you expect, as they often do, consider your safety net — who will speak for you, a trans person, when you’ve fallen down, whether by yourself, or tripped up by society?
Yes, I know the difficulty it is for some to put their conservative values aside and place their trans well-being first – but here’s the thing — your conservative colleagues, friends and family will continue to ensure those views are heard, but only you can put a safety net under those values, because if you fall, there just might not be anyone there to catch you.
Invest in yourself for a change. It’s difficult enough being transgender in the best of times, and way too many people become another anonymous transgender fatality statistic when times are difficult. Your ballot choices are private and nobody needs to know you voted for your well-being first, not even the Democrats.
