I am from America in the upper midwest. It effects me to the point where high school was ass, due to a conservative school board. College is somewhat better, but my college is feeling more and more fake inclusive. They make promises to include more gender-neutral bathrooms on campus and then never get around to it. There have also been harassment issues for some of the other LGBT+ people on campus, and those issues have been basically ignored. So I worry that if I were to get harassed, then that person would be able to get away with it. Our governor is also homophobic and transphobic, so that is neat.
Still though, there are some great people who push for things to get better here. I have some amazing professors, friends, and family.
And thanks again!
