Michelle Obama Didn’t Think This Would Happen After Stating She’s A Sex Symbol

Former First Lady Obama made a speech before leaving the White House, and the content of that speech is raising some eyebrows. Dubbed a 'humblebrag' by many media outlets, Mrs. Obama talks about how she was able to overcome the hardships of being sexy and attractive in order to make it in a man's world.

A video of the speech by Obama started going viral, and many are surprised by the arrogance of the First Lady's point of view. It's the same arrogance that haunted her when she was entering the White House, when she announced that her husband being elected president was the first time she'd ever been proud of her country.

Mrs. Obama painted herself as not just an educated woman, but an attractive sex symbol. She lamented how this attractiveness has made it difficult for her and women like her to be taken seriously all her life. Men, apparently, were only interested in her body, and were eternally gawking and whistling at her wherever she appeared.

Obama says she had to fight to be taken as a serious, intelligent person, and about how hard it is to make it in a 'man's world.'

The speech was intended to be an empowering message aimed at women, to teach them that they can do anything they want. Instead, it came off as an egocentric brag while painting women — beautiful women in particular — as victims of a sexist and overbearing male-dominant society. Listening to her is enough to make young women consider putting bags over their heads in hopes of hiding their femininity.

No sooner was the speech leaked, someone began working overtime to reel it in. Damage control efforts were in full force, and nearly every copy that could be found online has been deleted, accounts have been terminated and transcripts have been scrubbed. Even for Obama supporters, the speech just didn’t come off very well.
