The Future is Female




Wearing: Vintage dress, Romance Was Born top, bracelet was a gift and Asos shoes.

I know what you're thinking, "Adele, how can you possibly say that? Hillary has lost and the next president of the United States will be a misogynist, a racist, and a bigot. This is the man who has called Mexicans rapists, said there should be a total ban on Muslim immigration, he's called women pigs, sluts, dogs and bitches, as well as fat and disgusting. He's also sexualised and trash-talked his own daughters, boasting he'd probably be sleeping with Ivanka if she wasn't his daughter. In case it wasn't clear he's scum. He makes fun of people with disability and the grieving mothers who have lost their sons in the war. Overwhelmingly, the majority of his victims are women. He threatened to incarcerate his political opponent during the presidential debate (which has never happened before in American politics) and sue the women who report he sexually assaulted them.


Astoundingly, and in spite of every hate crime this man has committed against women, 53% of white women voted against Hillary Clinton. In comparison, 63% of white men voted for the republican party, and for an openly racist, xenophobic and misogynist candidate to become president of the United States. This is the result of manipulation, as well as white feminism. As a result, people of colour, members of the LGBTQIA community, Muslims, Indigenous people, immigrants, refugees and people with disability will live in fear and under persecution.
The future is uncertain, but please know I stand in solidarity with you, I am here if you need support or someone to talk. Please call me out if if I'm wrong, you all deserve so much better.

"... And to the young people in particular, I hope you will hear this. I have, as Tim said, spent my entire adult life fighting for what I believe in. I've had successes, and I've had setbacks. Sometimes really painful ones. Many of you are at the beginning of your professional, public and political careers. You will have successes and setbacks too. This loss hurts, but please. Never stop believing that fighting for what's right, is worth it"
