Here are a few things from around the web that may interest you:
First, some positive news: The women who won: Down-ballot candidates make history
And not so positive news: Everything Women Stand To Lose to President Trump
The strong support for Trump among white women suggests that many of them, if not “overtly racist”, simply “don’t think racism is a big deal”, said Mikki Kendall, a feminist cultural critic.
“For them, it’s not real. They don’t have to worry about it, so you must be exaggerating. It’s Ivanka Trump [saying], ‘I’ve never had to deal with sexual harassment,’ and she’s only worked for her dad and companies she’s owned.”
One of the most devastating things I’ve ever read: Day 1 In Trump’s America
And now that his prediction has come to pass, he offers a morning-after to-do list.
Even though Hillary lost the electoral college vote, she won the popular vote (though certainly not by a “landslide”). Democratic? Fuck, no. How Could the Electoral College System Be Replaced?
And did you know that electors are not bound by the constitution or federal law to elect the candidate the popular vote in their state chose? You could sign the petition for the electoral college to make Hillary Clinton president on December 19. (Note: this is a highly unlikely scenario, and I’m not sure a wise one. The ramification of retaliation from Trump supporters would likely be more violent and long-lasting than the ramifications of a Trump presidency, in my humble opinion).
