Did anyone notice…
Obama mentions his wife in his victory speech: “…The woman who agreed to marry me 20 years ago”
Romney mentions his wife in his concession speech: “… The woman I chose to marry”
It’s amazing how someone’s views on equality can come out in one simple sentence
I’m glad people are able to see the power in the difference regarding how these men speak about their wives. My husband and I are total equals in every aspect of our relationship, and I find these subtle implications of (basically) ownership so troubling. I have so much respect for men (and women) who acknowledge their partners as individuals - separate from themselves - and I lose so much respect for the people who refuse to see the people they’re with outside of how it relates to themselves.
