Nothing like scrolling through the Democratic Underground and catching up on the the latest anti-Trump posts. Much like the Dump Trump movement. Yes, there is a website, forum and thread board dedicated to all those Hilary lovers and Trump haters.
What gets me is all the “fear and grief” talk that all the Hilary losers talk about. Really? Fear, grief, loss, disbelief , these seem to be the running themes. Yes, there are people still crying over the Hilary loss. Mostly women.
Take for instance this thread: No You Cant : Why Im Still Crying Over Hillary Clintons Loss.
I am her. The words flashed through my head. And suddenly, there on the 101 freeway, I was down the hole again. Tears streaming, sobs choking, heart breaking. The realization hitting me. I am Her.
And here was the root of my pain. This wasn’t just about the disappointment that my candidate lost. Or the fear of what Trump will do to this country. It felt like my very soul hurt and I realized that it was because of what this election said to me as a woman. It said no.
No, woman, stay in your place. No, woman, you are not good enough. No, woman, no matter what you do, you will not win, you will not be the boss of me.
It crushed a part of my female core to realize that yes, the world at large really does hate women that much. And while there are other reasons to dislike Hilary Clinton and disagree with her policies, misogyny and sexism are the gas that fuels the fire they burned her with.
We are supposed to stay quiet and not ask for much. Stay in our place and say please and thank you and don’t challenge anyone. We must be perfect, ten times more perfect than the man beside us. And then we must wait for them to give us permission to follow their orders. – Eirene Donohue
Women are taking this particularly hard. I have a message, to Eirene, guess what?
ITS NOT ABOUT YOU.
This is not the 50’s, it’s 2016. No, you may think we live in the world of powerful and sexist men. Fortunately, you have it all wrong.
There are some powerful women too. They run companies, head laboratories, are doctors, lawyers and great all around people. They just don’t get to be president yet.
Some professional women are still getting their head around it though. Letting those female hormones get in the way of rational thought. Time to get a backbone and toughen the hell up!
When Teaching, you have to care, but not melt down in front of the kids. I’m hoping for a good opportunity for an ugly cry when the holidays finally start.
When I got to the door to go teach that first morning, I just thought–I will get through this day because every woman has faced having to live life after the most disgusting and undeserved humiliations, and carry on despite disappointment and failure. We have had to become experts.- Starry Messenger
Disappointment? Failure? It amazes me that the Democratic party even supported Hilary as their ‘savior’. You couldn’t have chosen a more controversial candidate. It just goes to show, you can’t run a campaign on being the first female president. It doesn’t work that way. I guess with that mindset, Obama won because he was the first black president?
That is not why Obama won and it’s not why Hilary lost. Hell, even Bernie would have been a better candidate. But Hilary’s campaign manager took care of that one. But then again, he would have still lost this election.
Oh, and did I mention for some women, they are now pissed at the ‘other women’. The ones that voted for Trump. Like being a woman is not hard enough, now they are being chastised by their own. Some have even gotten all hormonal on us with those God awful girly things.
I’m especially upset by the women who voted for that creep. It hurt me physically in a way, i’m tired, sore, have had three infections in the past month… I almost give up. – bravenak
I’ve finally made it to the acceptance stage of grief, but I too have gotten sick, run a fever, and felt terribly depressed. – BainsBane
I guess after this loss, there will be a lot of womanly sole searching. Have fun with this one Dems and please, do move on.
I am still in total rage and I admit a bit of denial, clinging like mad to the stupid hope that somehow, some way this can be changed. It’s just so hard to acknowledge the complete win by all the forces for bad in this country. I can’t accept the nightmare sub-humans that are now in charge, I just can’t. I never accepted shrub as my president and will never accept this either. I’m hoping I can get to the point where I don’t feel the need to scream all the time, but nowhere near there at this point. – lark
I guess the new rally cry for some women will be “I’m her“, as if somehow, this is the new catch phrase for the jilted woman.
“I am her” . . . uh, no you’re not. . .
