Michelle Obama Tells Men to “Be Better.” Here’s What She Doesn’t Get
As advice goes, “be better” is not objectively bad. We should all strive to be better in our lives. But the context of the advice matters. We women are lecturing men on how to be better fathers without regard for how we prevent them from doing so. When the First Lady tells men not to babysit their children she seems unaware that often mothers or the family courts (after women initiate divorce proceedings) treat men as babysitters, or worse.
And why doesn’t she tell her husband to finally sign off on a Whitehouse Council for Boys and Men?
