We Should Be Praising Mike Pence’s Marriage, Not Mocking It

Start

For the last ten hours, I’ve been fighting off liberals on my Twitter account outraged that Mike Pence tries to protect his marriage by not dining with women alone.

They have this theory that it somehow disadvantages his women employees. I’m guessing in reality the women who work for him are grateful to have a boss who doesn’t hit on them. It’s not that hard to leave a door open or invite a colleague in.

I get the folks who were or are outraged at President Trump for his past and present comments. But how can they be outraged at both Trump and Pence?

Here’s what I know from personal experience: as a young, unwed working mother, the guys who were most helpful to me didn’t do it because they believed gender didn’t matter. They helped me because they understood — in truth! — it’s really hard to be a young, unwed working mom, and they believed good men helped women like that.

Eliminating gender is not the solution, it’s the problem. If we want more good men, we need to appreciate them more — including the Mike Pences of the world fighting Capitol Hill’s sexual culture. God bless him.
