I feel like we've slipped into an alternate reality and we'll slip right back at any moment.

I've also never felt so hurt and disappointed by so many people.

My existence is political, so it's impossible not to take this personally. I'm already seeing messages of "get over it" or "give him a chance" and I'm just nope-ing right out of there. He may be president-elect, but I don't have to give a racist, xenophobic, homophobic, bigoted, narcissistic demagogue a chance. In fact, I plan on doing the opposite.

I'm gonna fight.

I've never donated to anything political, but I donated to the ACLU today and I'm going to give my money - and time, whenever I have that again - to organizations willing and able to fight for our rights and for basic human decency. I'm going to speak out and I'm going to call BS when I see it.

I've been afraid to do any of that in the past. But it's so different now that I have a daughter. This fight isn't just for me - it's for her. She deserves to grow up without fear.
