Yesterday, we watched an interracial president get sworn in—second term, b*tches—and his VP was sworn in by the first Latina on the Supreme Court. Richard Blanco, the poet chosen to give the inaugural poem is an openly gay Latino male. We have senators and congresspeople who are openly gay, female veterans, Indian-Americans, etc. etc. We even have orange politicians who cry easily.
Things are far from perfect, that is true, but given all that we have, if you’re really going to kvetch to me about your life of unimaginable suffering and why no one has ever had it as hard as you, and why the universe will not allow you to do the hard work necessary to achieve your dreams…you better think twice, Sunshine. I’m your coach, not your girlfriend: I’m here to help you achieve your potential, not listen to your bullshit.
AND I LOVE YOUR POTENTIAL!
