Really, it's so ludicrous. Any legislator who refuses to acknowledge Biden's victory is basically a coward of epic proportion, who cares less about upholding their sworn duty than pandering.

74 million people are ok with this and despite the pieces that claim I need to listen to them, I can't see why.

When are Republican leaders going to condemn this kind of unethical and inappropriate behavior? Or is it OK to try to overturn the will of the electorate just because you don't like the result? 

Anyone who wants a decent reputation going forward needs to leave the party and let the GOP disappear into the rat hole of history.

From U.S. Senator Tina Smith

"Historic progress today. I’ll keep fighting to end the failed and racist policy of marijuana prohibition by working to pass U.S. Senator Kamala Harris’ companion bill in the Senate, as well as my bill to legalize it safely.
At the end of the day, the public overwhelmingly supports legalization but our laws have not kept up. We can legalize marijuana in a smart and safe way.
Read more about my bill:"

i don’t care for common conceptions of the out/closeted dichotomy that burden queer people with managing the cisnormative expectations of others

the value of being “closeted” is having a completely pressure-free space to explore your own inner feelings so that even your closest confidants understand why you may not be ready to have certain conversations relating to your identity

when you find a sense of inner resolution, it’s not your obligation to go about correcting people’s misassumptions
