Last week, Cornell University students held a cry-in event on campus in response to the election results. So what happens at a cry-in? According to their Facebook page, attendees were encouraged to wear black and hold each other and cry. The Cornell Daily Sun, said "Over 50 students gathered in a circle to tell stories and support each other. [They] were given blankets, tissues and hot chocolate to keep warm as they wrote words of encouragement and protest. And they expressed themselves as they "came together and cried, as they were grieving Donald Trump’s election and the potential of a repeal of Roe v. Wade as a policy that makes them feel “personally targeted.” Ironically, the event was held by Planned Parenthood's student group, whose parent organization has already personally targeted millions of these students peers who never had to chance to protest in the first place.
