Comment on OTW Legal’s International Advocacy and You!

  1. Perhaps not technically (I have no idea!), which you are of course referring to. :) (Can anyone chime in?)
    Still, ultimately, it affects every fan. On fanfiction.net, which records where my readers come from, a majority seems to be from the US. I don't know if that is true on AO3, of course, and everyone is very welcome to argue that the loss of my contributions is no great loss to fandom as a whole (I hope you don't, but still). Yet I'd very much hope to keep uploading and interacting with all of you here! I sometimes read progressive media in my country, that are just now beginning to say things like "Um... perhaps gender is a scale... Perhaps representation matters... Perhaps identifying with people other than cishet, white, healthy, ablebodied men isn't quite as hard as we thought", and I'm like - really? Really. Ao3 taught me that a decade ago. So I want my fic, and I want to write my fic, and some people have even been kind enough to tell me to want to read my fic. For the EU to make that harder - well, I'm unpleasantly surprised. So I wrote in, and will thank everyone who will too. You're a big part of my life.
