Barack Obama is a dedicated feminist who "lives surrounded by women," his half-sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng, told a mostly female crowd at a Women For Obama event in downtown Tampa on Thursday.
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.
A comment on pandagon about redstate comments on the article in question is fantastic:
Did you see the comment on Redstate that argues this can’t possibly be true, because the book came out when Maya was 4. Unless Obama was such a sick pervert to give his sister the book as a toddler, they speculate.
I once received a copy of “Henry V”, which only goes to prove that I’m actually an immortal 900 year old time lord.
