Men can wear suits and are rarely judged on their appearance when they are in a suit, as long as the suit is good quality and fits properly. Not so women. Every detail of what a woman is wearing is noted and open to compliment or criticism. The difference between men' and women's clothing will remain a divide forever more. I can't help but think women's dress is a device of oppression.
Nevertheless, I like a pretty dress. What was Michelle Obama thinking. While I don't like her dress much, that stupid pink fly thing is absurd. Contrast her outfit to the beautiful dress Kate is wearing. Surely if you are meeting royalty in a foreign country, you would dress appropriately and not as for a teen girl's party. Barak and William, being men who can afford good suits, look just dandy. What is William telling Barak? I caught a fish this big? Or I gave Kate this much and I still a bit left that wasn't in. I can well imagine William's need to brag when there is a black man around.
There is a further issue with Michelle's dress. It is an awfully similar pattern and colour to Betty's. Wasn't there any prior liaison? And how about a bit of respect Barak and Michelle. A bow and curtsey if you please. Our Betty is not an elected person and so therefore deserves some some bowing and scraping. She probably has a cattle prod in her hand bag to deal with disrespectful types like yourselves.
One can't help but notice Betty's scalp showing through the tease of her hair. I always thought she had a good head of hair. Perhaps she needs to wear one of her many hats indoors. At least Barak will be a bit more civilised than other black people she has entertained, such as Idi Amin.
