At the very first Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago, former FLOTUS Michelle Obama was talking about raising children when she gave everyone this "ah ha" moment, saying:
We love our boys and we raise our girls. 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? Does it mean respect? Does it mean responsibility? Does it mean compassion? Or are we protecting our men too much so that they feel a little entitled and a little, you know, self-righteous sometimes?

I was always made to step up and do things I didn’t want to when my brother was allowed to go play & get away with bad behavior. It’s BS.— Zola Zappa (@ZolaZappa) November 1, 2017
I looooove hearing this woman speak. She is so intelligent, thoughtful, insightful. I listen to her and find myself nodding along. "Mmmhmm."— Rachel Scheer (@bigElittleR) November 2, 2017

Part of me wants her to run for president, but part of me would never wish that on her. She's suffered enough.— Tom Milner (@TomMilner11) November 1, 2017
