This explains a lot. I thought Obama was just a flip-flop wearing effete metrosexual. No, his sister says Obama is a feminist who "lives surrounded by women."
But here is the really interesting part.
She said he taught her to ride a bicycle, made her practice harder math problems and start an exercise program, took her on college visits and even *gave her her first women's health book - "Our Bodies, Ourselves," a 1973 guide that came out of the women's movement and focused on female sexuality, health and hygiene.*
Just look at the cover to get an idea of the book. The reviews are even more eye opening. One guy blames the book for starting his wife down the path to divorce. And there's this masterful description:
Twelve women meet during a women's liberation conference in Boston. At a workshop on "women and their bodies," they talk about their own experiences with doctors and share their knowledge about their bodies. The discussions at the conference are so provocative and fulfilling that the following summer, each woman researches a health topic close to her heart. They decide to put their knowledge into an accessible form that can be shared with others and that can serve as a model for women who want to learn about themselves, communicate their findings with doctors, and challenge the medical establishment to change and improve the care that women receive.
Barry is perfectly willing to give his sister a book that is not really the type of book you'd think most brothers would give to their sisters. Good for him, I guess, but I suppose I was raised in a more traditional America where boys don't give their sisters books that discuss their private anatomy.
That Obama would be labeled a dedicated feminist by his sister and give her a book like this, is yet another layer of evidence that Obama really is at home with the far left in this country.
But don't trouble yourself Doug. Obama will whisper sweet nothings in your ear when he signs legislation expanding abortion rights.
