. . . Todd Palin. So whipped that not only did this man give up his job to become Mr. Mom for Sarah Palin, but now he’s given up his job (again) to become Mr. GrandMom for daughter Bristol Palin so she can go tanning, according to what they told People Magazine in an exclusive interview they granted in exchange for a ton of money.
Last week, I told you about the People Magazine cover story and 8-page glamor shot spread glorifying Bristol Palin‘s great American achievement of having teen sex and then having an illegitimate kid. The feat is so remarkable, unique, special, and noteworthy that 40% of America’s other moms are doing it this way, many of them teen moms just like Bristol.
As I also told you, Bristol Palin said she was doing this to encourage abstinence (which she was against three months ago, when she wasn’t getting paid for it) and to show us how tough it is to be a teen mom.
Well, here’s just how “tough” it is. Todd Palin gave up his job so he can raise the kid while Bristol goes tanning and to the gym. Yup, it’s really tough to be a teen mom, especially when you’re in your late 40s and your name is Todd. Here’s the money quote from the People Magazine interview:
Postponing his own lucrative summer work on the North Slope oil fields, Todd does the bulk of the childcare for now, while Bristol also hits the gym and tanning. “My dad lets me go tanning quite a bit.”
Way to discourage teen sex and promote abstinence. If you have sex, you might get pregnant. But then your dad will quit his job and stay home and raise your baby, while you go tanning.
Yes, we’ve found a winner. Todd Palin, most whipped man in America. Whipped not just by wifey. But by baby mama daughter, too.
Sorry, but no matter how much conservatives try to turn their principles upside down for the Palins and suddenly support the Mr. Mom lifestyle, facts are facts. And one fact is that gender role blurring isn’t good for America.
Remember, matriarchies fail. There isn’t a single one that has survived history, despite what feminists want you to believe. And being a Mr. Mom has to be one of the most emasculating jobs in America. Men whose wives bring home the bacon while they stay at home and change diapers are generally not happy and don’t do this out of choice. Men who do this simply don’t have the power in their relationship. The chick does. Double all of that with men whose wives AND daughters have put them in that position.
Todd Palin . . . Doing the job that some Americans (Sarah and, now, Bristol Palin) just won’t do.
