So you may have heard that the USA has a new president-elect. And it's not the one we planned on, and according to the popular vote, not the one we wanted. But I'm not here to talk about him.

I was awake at 2:30 this morning when the news came through. I was awake again at 4:42am, and posted on Twitter that I didn't know what to do next. After sleeping for another few hours (very few), I posted first on Twitter, then Tumblr, then Facebook (I debated not doing this, since I'm friends with a bunch of parents, but fuck it), and now I'm here. And I'm going to make the same promise to you, LJ, as I did to all those other places.

If you are LGBTQA+, if you are not white, if you are not able-bodied, if you are not Christian, if you are otherwise not a straight white male in the USA, I will fight for you. I will protect you from people who try to harm you. I will use myself as a shield for you. You matter to me. I love you very much.

If you are like me (i.e. straight and white and able-bodied, etc), I'm asking you to do the same.

I will fight, I will protect, I will love. That is what I will do next.

This was the conclusion I came to this afternoon. I will stand and fight for those that need me.

I always kind of knew that's what we *should* do, but now we *have to* do it. We have to.
