My first time voting was amazing. It was this line in the sand. Before I was a girl. Now I was a woman. I went to the polling station and pulled back the curtain. I voted for Barack Obama.
But now my relatives are ashamed of me, my own father can't look me in the eye. When I enter a room the conversation stops, I here whispers of "She...voted...for.......Obama!" All around town the cool guys are laughing and calling me a filthy Obama voter and telling me theres nothing quite as skanky as a white girl who votes Obama. I always heard once you go Obama, you'll never go back, but I didn't realize that's because once I voted for Obama no other candidate would ever have me. I'm damaged goods, maybe I should just end it all.
