The former First Lady was speaking at an event for the Obama Foundation when she started talking about how we as a society raise boys and girls differently. Her comments about boys and men were a little surprising.

Michelle Obama: We raise men to feel ‘entitled’
Michelle Obama is questioning whether men may feel “entitled” and “self-righteous” because of mothers’ inclination to protect them.
“It’s like the problem in the world today is we love our boys and we raise our girls,” the former first lady told poet Elizabeth Alexander Wednesday at the Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago.
“We raise them to be strong, and sometimes we take care not to hurt men. And I think we pay for that a little bit,” Obama, 53, said.
The mom to daughters Malia, 19, and Sasha, 16, continued, “And that’s a ‘we’ thing because we’re raising them.”
“It’s powerful to have strong men but what does that strength mean?” asked Obama. “Does it mean respect? Does it mean responsibility? Does it mean compassion? Or are we protecting our men too much so that they feel a little entitled and a little, you know, self-righteous sometimes?”
“And that’s kind of on us, too, as women and mothers,” Obama added, “as we nurture men and push girls to be perfect.”
