I don't know how to take this but it's my opinion that masculinity is under attack. They us feminized.
Well, get offended, of course! Asking men to be good fathers and provide a good example... Well, that's downright offensive!
Now imagine two men sitting around saying, "Just be better women, do the dishes, do the laundry and just be better women."
LOL! I can't imagine why you would use examples of such trivial and mindless tasks as doing dishes and laundry to equate to being a better
parent and setting a good example for your children, which is what Michelle said... Would you be offended if she (or anyone) suggested that women
should be better mothers? I know I wouldn't. I would agree... But then, I can take it.
If you just can't handle people being told to improve themselves, you should probably find a space where you won't have to hear such nonsense.
The fact remains that only men were targeted with the implication, assumption and suggestion that men are by default bad, bad parents , bad persons
bad everything. Because if you are of the opinion that that is not the case you would not make blanket statements like that unless you are hell bend
on making it look like that. They sit there and act so suggestively as if this is some sort of epidemic problem. Much like how Thirdwave feminists
like to pretend that they encounter a rapist everytime they go for a walk 7 days a week a.k.a the "rape culture". Which also always happens to exclude
woman from the allegations for 'some sort of reason'. What you are seeing here is the same thing, same suggestive talks and the same exclusion of
woman from the critique.
There are many men who are great fathers. Most likely millions and millions more then you think anyway. There are also a lot o fathers who are denied
this chance because they get the short end of the stick in divorce cases which simply comes down to gender discrimination (since that is all the rage
these days lets now also call that for what it really is). In contrast to the message Obama and Oprah are shilling here there are also millions of
woman who flat out refuse to take care of their children or do a horrible job at it because they simply are not caring enough a.k.a 'Bad
mothers/Woman' and also often guilty of domestic violence to men, other woman and children.
Maybe if they truly were about the "Think of the children!" narrative they should not have limited the discussion about bad parenting to just men. But
seeing as this was not about bad parenting but about pushing the idea into peoples heads that men are simply just bad by default and should be assumed
to be just that, and always seem to need to 'learn how to be good' for anything, that of course did not fit their agenda.
And who better to push for dishonest suggestions then Michelle Obama and Oprah to fill the need for people to think like and learn to agree with
