Megyn Kelly Offended, Why, I Wasn’t
There seems to be a lot of talk going on here.
Check it out:
Here we go again. Another case where someone wants to play the insulted, oppressed and offended woman. Apparently Erick Erickson struck a chord a little too close to home for Fox News’ Megyn Kelly the other day when opining on the differences between *gasp… men and women. Feeling like you’re neglecting your children by working those long, late hours at Fox? Want to be offended and try to deny the fact that women were created with the nurturing gene? Well, get real. You want to know the real reason you’re feeling angry? You don’t want to face the deep down truth, which you know is in there:
You are the nurturer of the household! Before you flare those nostrils at me and begin kicking up dirt, let me share with you another woman’s perspective….
I am technically a new mother. I just had my first baby 3 months ago. My husband has a teenage son from his first marriage so when I came into the family I filled the mother role in his life. But I believe you truly don’t understand this mother role and how important it is until you have your own.
In my family pre-baby, I filled what I called the “buffer” role. My husband was the tough disciplinarian and I tried to be the softer, more mother-like figure in our son’s life. He needed a strong role model in his father but he also needed a softer, complementary role model in a mother. The same goes for our daughter. She needs to feel safe, protected, loved and provided for by her father and comforted, nurtured and loved by her mother.
