Ars is a sickening bastion of groupthink, though.
I agree. I can't read the comments there anymore. If people disagree with the article, they get lambasted by The Ars Borg. That's becoming the "increasingly non-natural" norm in society.
I'm actually tired of the "group think" which deny's the fact of man-made climate change. It is real. It is a scientifically proven fact. That is the real reason you get lambasted for disagreeing. Your disagreement is a denial of facts.
While I am concerned about conservative, anti-gay justices being nominated to the Supreme Court, under Trump (especially while the GOP controls all of congress), I don't think the Supreme Court will repeal gay marriage. One particular Executive Order from President Obama, states that the federal government and its contractors cannot fire and employee because of his or her sexual orientation. This affects me, because the company I work for, is a government contractor and follows this order. If the Trump administration repeals this order (along with many others they have threatened to repeal), I could be fired for being openly gay.
Right after the election, the governor of my state talked to Mike Pence, who basically stated that our state shouldn't expect any more federal help with Medicaid. The company I work for, partially relies on Medicaid payments. While I'm not likely to get fired because of this, I likely will not receive much (if any) in the way of pay raises.
So, does a Trump administration directly affect me? Absolutely. Don't even get me started about my non-white partner.
It is going to be a rough 4 years (if he lasts that long).
