Tonight, we aren’t just annoyed — we’re scared shitless
‘I’m at a bar and every woman here is crying’
Donald Trump is the President-elect, and women everywhere are terrified.
“I’m scared,” my younger sister texted me tonight.
“Please stay safe if you go out,” my brother messaged.
“I’m going to throw up,” “I’m crying,” “I don’t know what do to,” “What will I tell my daughter?”
“What are we supposed to do,” “I feel nauseous,” “Look at how he feels about me – about my sexuality, about my gender,” and the texts didn’t stop.
Women are not just annoyed. We’re annoyed when you talk over us, when you downplay our abilities, when you forget we worked twice as hard as you to get here.
Tonight, we are scared shitless.
People ask why women don't report sexual assault. You got your answer: a man can have double digit accusers & still be elected President.

As a lgbtq+ woman & survivor of sexual assault, I've never been so disgusted with such a large group of people in my entire life.

I'm a woman. I'm Muslim. I'm a refugee. I'm an immigrant. I'm everything Donald Trump dehumanizes and devalues. I'm ashamed of America

I am a white woman and I am so scared. But I cannot imagine the fear my muslim, black, hispanic, LGBTQ+ friends are experiencing.

I'm sick realizing how deeply men hate women. How deeply white people hate POC. How easily we are all shoved aside.

Women are taught that men should lead.
All races of women have that drilled into their heads from birth.

ANYONE who is not an upper class, straight, white, Christian, heterosexual male should be afraid right now. #ElectionNight

If you thought we were nasty before, you better buckle your fucking seat belts because you haven't seen a real nasty woman yet

We’re scared, but we stand together. And this nation has no idea what’s coming for it.
