(…) During the interview which naturally took place in front of an all female audience, Michelle made the following observations about men.
Men should simply be better if they want to help women achieve gender equality. Be better at everything. Be better fathers. Good lord, just being good fathers who love your daughters and are providing a solid example of what it means to be a good man in the world, showing them what it feels like to be loved.”
A woman with a powerful voice and a very public platform decides it is her right to sit in judgement upon the male gender and tell them how they can be better men and better fathers. She even feels the need to tell fathers to love their daughters. It is breathtakingly arrogant and deeply offensive. I know that the “flip the genders” test is by now old hat but it remains the single best way to make people reflect upon the incredibly different way in which the public responds to what men and women have to say about each other.
Imagine if you will, that Donald Trump held a rally or did an interview with a male journalist who was so enamoured with him that he would be willing to lick his boots should he ask him to do so. Imagine this interview is taking place in front of an all male audience. (…)
