Michele Bachmann Doesn’t Let Her Daughters Ask Boys On Dates
It may not be 1954 anymore but don’t tell that to Michele Bachmann, mother to five kids and foster mother to 23. The hopeful Republican presidential nominee announced yesterday that she didn’t get asked to her senior prom as a young girl and so she simply didn’t go. She has since upheld this policy with her girls as they’re explicitedly not allowed to ask boys out. The gentleman always leads, after all!
Michele told Sean Hannity that she is keeping those archaic gender roles in place in her home, as Think Progress reports:
BACHMANN: People do find out [in my book] that I did not get asked to my senior prom.
HANNITY: Well, neither did I. And nobody would go with me.
BACHMANN: Well, in my time, girls didnâ€™t ask boys to prom. If you didnâ€™t get asked, you didnâ€™t go.
HANNITY: Yeah, well let me tell you, I have a 13-year-old son. Those days have changed big time.
BACHMANN: And our girls are not allowed to do that in our house. They have to wait for the boys to call.
A note to Ms. Bachmann that today’s young ladies aren’t exactly waiting around the turnstyle phone for Billy from homeroom to call on the house line. They’re either getting that invite to the soda fountain from Facebook or maybe even a text if he really likes them. Also, kids don’t “go steady” anymore and you’d be hard pressed to find a teenager in a drive-thru movie theatre.
