She was our champion. I’m heartbroken that we’ve lost her, and that in the last years of her life she was forced to watch the liberties she defended get pissed on by the current administration. Anyone else who’s devastated by this, I’m crying with you.
Just in case any U.S. bees who look at these boards are still on the fence about voting this November, I wanted to make sure you know how much higher the stakes have just become….
…and if this post is considered “offensive” or “too divisive” for this site, well, that’s a shame.

I’m heartbroken over this too. She was amazing, she literally worked until the day she died. I feel terrible that she never got to retire, and that she had to spend the last years of her life watching this country go down the drain. I hope we can do her proud with the next election and rebuild everything that’s been destroyed by the current administration.

Words escape me. I’m just heartbroken. She was one of my heroes.

I’m with you ladies. Devastated and scared for our country. She was also one of my heroes.

I agree with all of you. She was important and did so many great things for the USA. Truly a great loss.

RBG was a badass! I wrote a paper on her in undergrad and this woman was a force to be reckon with. Great wife, mother, and lawyer. I’m so sad about her passing!
I mean, can we talk about her going to Harvard Law school during the day and then coming home to teach her husband who was also in law school but at home sick (cancer, if I’m not mistaken) and got him through AND she had a baby on top of that!

That is my hope too. Not that I’m just content to hope, though, I want to blow shit up (metaphorically speaking, of course). I want to kick some ass with my little black dot come November.

We’ve lost a strong, courageous warrior today. One of the greatest legal minds of our time and a true champion of the people.
RIP, RBG. May god have mercy on us all.

Right?!?! Like Wonder Woman but BETTER! A mortal (sadly), human woman who fought tooth and nail for herself, her family and the rights of others and never surrendered. Not to mention funny as hell 🙂 .
I know an amazing nine-year-old girl who looked up to her so much. She really did regard her as a superhero. She is inconsolable tonight, poor baby.

I am definitely heartbroken over this. She was a true legend, icon, giant of woman. I’m scared for this election but now I’ve got a fire within me to go volunteer and help any way I can.

She will go down in history for her legacy. She not only broke through the glass ceiling, she completely shattered it. She was an incredible, tenacious woman.
But boy am I glad there’s still plenty of time to get another conservative on the bench.

YES!! Do it, lady, and stay safe 🙂

I’m not sure how 1) praising RBG for her trailblazing for women’s rights and 2) being glad a conservative justice can be appointed to potentially undermine all that RBG has worked for are congruous enough to belong in the same post.
