Former First Lady Michelle Obama, seemingly desperate to be in the spotlight and relevant once again, has decided the best way to accomplish that goal is by doing the one thing liberals are supposed to hate, namely lumping an entire sex together as being problematic.
Yes, Mrs. Obama made some rather sexist remarks against men, claiming we’re all “entitled” and “self-righteous.”
Now just imagine the outrage if the tables were turned and a man said this about women. World War III would ensue in a matter of minutes.
Here are the details.

Michelle Obama is back in the spotlight once again, and she’s bashing the entire male sex. Speaking at the Obama Foundation Summit on Wednesday, the former first lady suggested men are raised to not be as strong as women, but instead to be “entitled” and “self-righteous.” According to Mrs. Obama, mothers are too soft on boys when bringing them up; they “love” their boys and “raise” their girls.
“The problem in the world today is we love our boys and we raise our girls, you know?” said Obama. “We raise them to be strong and sometimes we take care not to hurt men, and I think we pay for that a little bit.”
“It’s powerful to have strong men but what does that strength mean?” she continued. “Does it mean respect … or are we protecting our men too much so they feel a little entitled or a little self-righteous sometimes?”

She also implored men to get “some friends” so they can be checked on their apparent gender deficiencies, as women allegedlly do.
“Y’all should get you some friends,” she told the audience. “Get you some friends and talk to each other, because … [women] straighten each other out on things.”
So it’s perfectly acceptable for a woman to criticize men up and down, but not okay for a man to return the favor? That’s male privilege, right?
How about we acknowledge that all people are flawed, regardless of their gender and that everyone could do a much better job of loving one another and treating each other kindly?
Men and women face a unique set of problems due to their differences, that much is true. However, it seems disingenuous and a little hypocritical to dish out hate on men and not accept some back.
Just my two cents.
