The Unbearable Unbearableness of the Adult Baby Left

Noemie Emery notes you've seen all their coordinated group emoting rituals before.

A month after the surprise election of Donald Trump in November (surprising to noone more than to Trump and Clinton), the losers are still working through the stages of anguish in ways that seem strange to many observers but of which they appear oddly proud.

"Oddly proud" is exactly right. Rather than be ashamed of this unhinged, lunatic hyperemotionalism, they are oddly proud of it -- their Sadz and Feelz signal that they are of the bien pensant class.

Not only do they brag of the length and intensity of their bouts of sobbing -- "crying as if someone died" was a common description -- but, as New York magazine reported days later, professional women all over the country are making a brave stand to protest Trump's election by doing hideous things to their hair. Because "the election results felt like an attack on minorities, women, and marginalized people in general," a "vegan chef" cut her hair off to send Trump a "message." Others like her got buzz cuts, flat tops or tossed out their extensions, and went platinum, or black.

Unfortunately, there was not a chance in the world that this message would reach Trump, or that he would care if he got it, but somehow the logic of making themselves ugly in the interests of spiting a well-know connoisseur of feminine pulchritude just seemed the right thing to do.

"I don't know if it's that their right to choose could be in jeopardy, or that the glass ceiling is still there, but I'm seeing [a difference]" said one salon owner, who was making a fortune out of their wish to be hideous, and that was just the beginning of what Trump had done. ''My Libido: The First Casualty of Trump's Election," ran another lament in the same publication, and the Washington Post only days later took up the same theme: "Trump's election stole my desire to look for a partner," wrote one female blogger. "Once it was clear that Donald Trump would be president instead of Hillary Clinton, I felt sick to my stomach ... That urge to cling to my family while keeping our foundation strong didn't mesh well with continuing to date the man I'd been seeing ... I'm not the optimistic person I was on the morning of Nov. 8, wearing a T-shirt with 'Nasty Woman' written inside a red heart."

Read the rest -- she notes the left went into a similar conniption of Conspicuous Grieving after John Kerry's 2004 loss to Bush.
