The Hill We Die On

State Representative Mike Hill (R) seems to think it’s funny when someone talks about wanting to kill gay people. Which Bible verse is used to justify it is immaterial; the intent is horrific. Was it amusing when a Key West couple attacked gay tourists off Wisteria Island last year? On the anniversary of the Pulse shootings, will he hold a party? Or join one?

It’s no surprise that Hill has been against any attempt to reduce gun violence or abuse. Both of those are used to keep non-white straight cis men oppressed. He has been against any form of anti-discrimination bills - it’s harder for his friends to find loopholes than it is to be outright bigots. 

The language is deliberate, three years ago today as I write this someone took that to its logical conclusion in Orlando. As a trans woman, this is personal for me. I hear about the deaths this kind of thinking causes. Apparently, he wants to be the Hill we die on.

As the Legislative Director of Florida NOW,  I will work to prevent that from happening, and my feminist NOW sisters and siblings of other genders will be there.
