Michelle Obama: I'm Also a Victim of Sexism; Men Used to Whistle At Me In the Streets!

Well okay then.

Mrs. Obama went-full-on down-with-The-Patriarchy as she complained that men would comment, or even "whistle" at her due to her appealing looks. The First Lady dramatically spiraled: "[A]s if my body were their property, as if I were an object to be commented on instead of a full human being with thoughts and feelings of my own."

She also said that the teachers used to call on the boys to answer the questions, even though the girls (all of them, apparently) had "better grades" than the boys.
