"I say that not just as President but also as a feminist."

Today is President Obama's birthday. And, because it's just the kind of guy he is, he gave us a gift for his birthday.

President Barack Obama Says, "This Is What a Feminist Looks Like."

I was decidedly dubious 8 years ago. I am not dubious anymore.

That should not be misconstrued as my saying he's a perfect feminist. I'm not a perfect feminist! I just see that his time as president, and as a father of girls becoming women, has changed him. Because he, like his friend Hillary, listens.
