let’s face the facts.
there’s a very, VERY real chance that mitt romney will become the president-elect in a few days. for everyone who’s white, male, cis, heterosexual, well-off and a citizen of the united states— nothing much will change. things’ll probably even get better for you guys.
but for the rest of us:
the poor, the queer/LGBT*I, the women, the people of color. the marginalized, the working class, the oppressed. the undocumented, the silenced, the jailed.
it’s gonna be fuckin’ hard.
and you know what, as much as people like to say YEAH BRB GOING TO MOVE TO CANADA or some shit, that ain’t happening for about 99% of us. we’re stuck in this country, for better or worse.
we’ve got to act. we’ve got to organize, to talk, to engage in dialogues. we’ve got to stand together and tell mitt fuckin’ romney and his fucking sidekick in oppression paul dickhead ryan that they can try to ruin our lives, but not before we tell them to fuck off and shove their shit in their faces.
not that it isn’t happening now— not that people aren’t risking their lives right now, standing up and telling their stories, fighting. we’re standing on the shoulders of giants.
but this reasoning? moving to canada, to england, to where the fuck ever? that’s not what we should be talking about. ha ha funny joke, guess all the rich white people can move off to other countries and live their happy romney-free lives there.
the rest of us are settling in for what might be a very long four years.
Seriously, you guys. This is not an optional thing. If Romney wins, we NEED to get together and speak up. There is strength in numbers and we will need each other.
