RIP to this troll.

World, meet Sarah McBride. She won a state senate race in Delaware this year, and when she takes office, she will become America's first openly trans state senator.

In her victory speech on election night, McBride acknowledged the historic nature of her win.

I hope tonight shows an LGBTQ kid that our democracy is big enough for them, too.

“I think tonight’s results demonstrate what I’ve known my entire life, which is that the residents of this district are fair-minded, and they’re looking at candidates’ ideas and not their identity,” she said, adding: “It is my hope that a young LGBTQ kid here in Delaware or really anywhere in this country can look at the results and know that our democracy is big enough for them, too.”
