Michelle Obama To Men: 'Be Better'
Men: That's got to be the dumbest thing she ever said.
Michelle Obama: "Be better fathers"
Men: Kinda difficult when it's women who keep alienating us from parenthood.
Michelle Obama: "My experience of never being physically abused by a man is a rare reality."
Men: "No, it's a paranoid delusion - women are much more likely to abuse their kids, and women abuse their partners just as often as vice versa - lesbian DV is higher than straight, so why do you need to make this about men?"
" Do the dishes."
We work longer hours at more dangerous jobs - and now you want to nag us to work even more?
"Don’t just think going to work and coming home makes you a man."
No, it makes us a zombie, or it makes us dead - but now we have the joy of knowing any woman who listens to you will nag at us to boot.
Then if we leave because we can't stand it, we lose our kids - and you'll be weeping crocodile tears about how much of a deadbeat we are"
"When you are sitting at a seat of power at a table of any kind and you look around you just see you, it’s just you and a bunch of men around a table"
So you judge our worth by our sex? Lovely. Here we were thinking it was the people who fought hardest who got to the top - largely asian people by the way. Maybe you should be telling those asian women not to fight so damn hard because they are showing you feminists up?"
"When a teacher would come and tell me that I couldn’t do something, I would get so much satisfaction proving them wrong."
Which is why you... married into power and wealth. Huh.
"You don’t have to say anything to the haters."
Then why don't you shut up? Nag, nag, nag!
" And that tends to shut them up."
You think just because you can't hear our conversation that you have silenced us? Do you think we disappear when we close our eyes?
" 'You make me proud to spell my name W-O-M-A-N."
|Hello. My name is W-O-M-A-N.|
Oh god, she's retarded.
