A great meal often starts with a delicious appetizer. Though in this case, it’s more like just desserts.

Kim Davis, the country clerk from Kentucky who went viral in 2015 after refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples, has just lost her reelection bid in Kentucky.

No, we’re talking about the control of Congress here or even the future or marriage equality but in politics, symbolic victories are still important. And Kim Davis was nothing if not a symbol for those still holding on to antiquated ideas of marriage, equality and tolerance in American society.


Needless to say, Twitter was there with some priceless reactions:

Whenever life becomes too tedious or stressful, it seems that the human psyche has a release valve that turns on and we just go, "F it."

I give up. I no longer care. I got nothing left.

It's a wonderful moment when we go from being at our wits end to being on the other side of the madness. Because, after all, as Mark Manson, author of "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck" says:

You and everyone you know are going to be dead soon. And in the short amount of time between here and there, you have a limited amount of fucks to give. Very few, in fact.
