I’m from Indiana and a lot of people here don’t like Mike Pence and the fact he’s out of touch with basic human rights and was genuinely “shocked” that people in our state “know gay people” IS one of the reasons why. This photo gives a little satisfaction to those of us who fought (and continue) to fight his backward bigoted misogynistic politics. Dude actually tried to govern my uterus. He tried to pass a law (thankfully it was vetoed) that was so poorly written that it implied every time a woman has her period she must have a funeral for any “tissue” that passes because it could be a miscarried fetus. It was bonkers. Our state still doesn’t have hate crime laws or real protection/equality for our LBGT citizens.
Sorry everyone. Most of us in Indiana had nothing to do with this guy. We tried our best and appreciate him being taken off our hands. We never saw Mother much either. He always seems polite, but his views are extreme and unreasonable to those of us who don’t share the same religious beliefs.
As a gay Irishman I agree completely. Great to have had a gay Indian Taoiseach in the history books as protecting our interests from Brexit BUT once this is all said and done we definitely need... well ideally a policy energised member of the Social Democratic party leading a coalition with Green and Labour if you ask me.
