Hey, who's ready for another woman's account of how many times she's cried since the election?

If that headline sounds sexist, it’s not meant to be. Even now, as we approach 2017, men are willing to admit they’re “heartsick” over the election of Donald Trump, but most seem to be holding back from confessing how they’ve broken down in fits of sobbing since the morning of Nov. 9.


Women? Not so much. Plenty were photographed in tears, even prostrate on the floor at the Javits Center on the night of the election. Reporters wrote of how many women had taken refuge in the restrooms not only to cry, but to be physically ill.

One mother wrote in the Washington Post how she managed to pull herself together after crying but realized she can no longer date, not now. “Dating means hope,” she explained, noting that “there is no room for dating in this place of grief.” A 45-year-old marketing director told New York magazine how she cried for three days after the election, which “deadened her soul” and inspired her to dye her hair black.

It’s December 19, the Electoral College has convened, and everyone’s beginning to feel a little better, right? Too soon?

In case it wasn’t enough to know that every woman in America is still crying over the election (100 percent of women did vote for Hillary, right?), the New York Times wants it known that women around the world are in tears thanks to our folly. Michelle Obama herself noted that America now knows “what not having hope feels like,” but it turns out the whole planet is in mourning.


Lisa Pryor, a doctor who lives in Australia, writes in an op-ed that since the election she has “cried many times, in the shower, in the car, as the conventions that define liberal Western democracy are stripped away by Donald J. Trump.”

“When we visit America now,” she continues on behalf of all of Australia, seemingly aware that the inauguration isn’t until January, “it feels like the opposite, like decay. Roads, airports, an economy, perhaps even a society, falling to pieces.”
