I may out myself as some kind of masochist by doing this, but ever since the election went how it did, I’ve been unable to stop myself reading about it everywhere. So here are a bunch of things I thought were worth reading (feel free to share more in the comments as well).
In no particular order:
Yemisi Ilesanmi: Donald Trump’s America: A Win for Sexism, Racism, and Misogyny
Alyssa Gonzalez: Compañero, We’re Done
Hank Fox: Well… Wow.
Kathleen Johnson: The King of America and the Killing of Hope
Iris at Perry Street Palace: no title
Amy Roth: I Didn’t Vote For Him
Matthew Facciani: Trump’s America is Already Terrifying
Peter Beinart: After Trump, a Call for Political Correctness From the Right
Amanda Marcotte: The Misogyny Apocalypse
PZ Myers: What happened?
I’m sure there’s more, I’ve definitely read a lot more things but these were the ones I saved up to post. Feel free to link more below. I don’t know, let’s wallow in despair or something. What am I even supposed to say?
(Edit: 11/12/16) Here are some more things to read.
Kaveh Mousavi: The US Has Elected its Ahmadinejad
John Scalzi: The Cinemax Theory of Racism
Martin Hughes: Don’t Tell Us to Hug the Smirking Deplorables
And here is a Change.org Petition to ask the electors of the Electoral College to be “faithless” and elect Hillary Clinton in agreement with the popular vote. It’s already at over 3.3 million signatures, though it could do with a lot more. I have signed it. While I understand if people are uncomfortable with this sort of thing – and if successful, probably would lead to some problems with Trump supporters shouting about “rigged elections” among other things – this is technically permitted by the system and, frankly, things are desperate. I don’t know if it will do any good, but please consider signing if you are comfortable with it.
(Edit: 11/14/16) In case you may not have seen them, I have been posting more links in the comments, and will no doubt continue to do so.
