"White feminists like Michelle Cottle and Linda Hirshman want Michelle Obama to “Lean In” — to be more like Sheryl Sandberg. (Even though the entire “Lean In” brand of feminism is for middle- and upper-class white women and doesn’t speak to women of color’s reality.)

But Cottle didn’t get that memo. She just can’t believe that an “overeducated lawyer” like Michelle Obama would waste her time caring for her kids – how anti-”having it all” of her!”

"This wasn’t about spectatorship – this was sheer objectification. You took a person who was potentially having a hard time – you don’t even mention her again after acknowledging she paused after downward dog, nor do you mention if/how she finished the class, how compassionate – and made her the object of your emotions; this thing that caused you to cry because of all these big thoughts and feelings. How embarrassing it must be to show millions of people that you’ve never given this much thought to the world surrounding your trikonasana before a fat, black woman entered it. I truly feel for you.”
