All across America the gender divide that characterized the recent Presidential election is being lived in the same household. The woman in the home is disconsolate, dispirited, crestfallen, abjectly dejected and feeling wounded over the defeat of Hillary Clinton as the first female with a chance to be President. The man in the home is reticent to crack a smile over his elation that crooked Hillary is not the 45th President of the United States.
As one friend whispered to me facetiously on the phone: “I’m wearing a piece of duct tape over my mouth so my wife can’t see me smirk over the election of Donald Trump.”
Feelings over the election are intense, especially at home. One online video shows a black mother kicking her own male child out of her house for having voted for Donald Trump in a mock election at school. [Daily Mail Nov 11, 2016]
Yes, Americans are certainly aware of the current state of political polarization. The fact that neither candidate held a convincing majority of votes in the election further intensifies the bitterness.
