Don't Blame Men for Hillary's Loss


I see, "Women failed Clinton" on one station, "Men prove they're sexist by voting Trump" on another. Let's fact check that.

Percent of women that voted Clinton: 54%
Percent of white women that voted Trump: 54%.

She had the minorities, but not the majority of white women. For some, Trump confirmed the dynamics they assume to see in gender scales. For others, she wasn't relatable. But with so many protests, so few accepting, "the way things are', I'm optimistic they won't stay. More than this, I am specific in saying Trump is one man, not all men, the same way Clinton couldn't represent all women.
