BILLIONS OF WOMEN throughout the world have been saddened by the U.S. election result.
But it is just another example of how the white, male, straight, able-bodied "majority" gets things their way.
I'm not suggesting that women, black, gay and disabled people didn't vote for Trump - but they aren't the ones who'll BENEFIT from his policies. The beneficiaries will be middle American workers who believe that - collectively - women, black, gay and disabled people are responsible for America not being the "great" country they believe it could and should be.
But his election is merely another nail in the coffin of the 'old school' white male leaders, another rusty link in the chain of disastrous politics, another failure in the seemingly neverending depression that is patriarchy.
So we need to build even further on that failure and spread the word!
It is becoming obvious to more and more people everywhere (we can all see it among our circles) that political systems of "developed" countries are NOT working, that patriarchy has failed not "just" the women of the world, but anyone who doesn't fit into a pre-determined white, straight, able-bodied, wilingly corrupt MALE demographic. If a person isn't caucasian, happily exploiting women and gay people, jogging to work with 20/20 vision and standing to pee, then that person isn't considered worthy of rights.
So those 75% of us who don't fit into one or more of those categories are beginning to fight back, realising that today's leaders not only don't consider us "people", but don't consider us worthy of being represented and helped to grow.
Trump is the epitome of this thinking. And he has to be the end of the line!
Like many countries (even mine) , America will have a female leader one day, but in letting Hillary lose, God (or nature) was ensuring that it will have a solid one, who is able to get on with changing the world without being dragged through the mud by men who consider her emails to be worse than Trump's sexist, racist, homophobic and discriminatory policies.
