My Red Pill Moment

“He’s not a Republican is he?” My father asked in response to my news that I was dating a plumber named Justin. Seriously, that was the first thing he said.

“I don’t know,” I said. “We don’t talk about politics.”

That was October 2015. Before Donald Trump became a politician.

By October 2016, everything was different. Justin and I weren’t just dating. We were in love.
