During the republican debate this week, Michelle Bachmann was asked the following:
Her answer, in part:As president, would you be submissive to your husband?
This question has raised a firestorm over whether it was fair or appropriate. It came about from this comment she made where she said that she finished her degree because her husband told her so and women are supposed to be submissive to their husbands(can't find quote at the moment, if any one else can, will edit it in and give credit).Marcus and I will be married for 33 years this September 10th. Iím in love with him. Iím so proud of him. And both he and I ó what submission means to us, if thatís what your question is, it means respect.
I respect my husband. Heís a wonderful, godly man, and a great father. And he respects me as his wife.
So, we the question fair? Was it appropriate? Was it sexist? You can choose more than one.
