Who Is Giselle Fetterman? You Be the Judge…
Who is Gisele Fetterman? Is she the woman beneath her freshman Democratic Senator husband’s wings? The self-sacrificing wife of stroke victim yet senate-winning husband, John Fetterman?
Or is Gisele a callous phony who is seeking fame from her husband’s tragedy? Someone who has found a pathway to power and status on the national stage and does her best to silence anyone who sounds even remotely critical?
That is certainly what she has done with reporters who dare to ask even the tamest question about Sen. John Fetterman’s mental and physical health.
Recently, Gisele Fetterman sat with a Washington Post columnist who equated her situation to that of a rape victim. This was because a reporter questioned her for grabbing her children and running off on a vacation trip immediately after her husband admitted himself into the hospital for clinical depression back in mid-February. This was his second stay in a hospital in two weeks.
Gisele Fetterman is still angry over how she was relentlessly criticized because of her actions last month. And probably very irritated over things said about her in John’s senate campaign.
The senator’s wife just wrote an op-ed that was published in Elle Magazine. She once again played a victim card when claiming that she was being unfairly attacked because she is a woman.
“A healthy, loving relationship is about supporting your partner’s dreams, not controlling them. I would never stop John from pursuing an ideal, just like he could never stop me—even if he wasn’t crazy about the idea at first, like when I told him I was going to be running into fires.
Hate is a lot like fire. If you don’t control it, it spreads.
For every baseless allegation, there are millions of young women being taught to internalize blame for everything—even in the worst moments of their lives. This misogyny affects everything they do. It spreads in the classroom, at the dinner table, and of course, on social media.
When we demand that women steel themselves in the face of unending attacks, we teach the next generation to normalize and accept harassment. In the end, it only blames women once again; telling us to toughen up or ignore it reasserts the idea that we need to accept when we’re treated poorly, instead of questioning why society permits abusive behavior. It makes us feel like we’re the problem for feeling pain when we’re held over a live fire.
Try as we may, we can’t fight fire with fire. We can’t out-hate a force set on denying our essential humanity. And even if I could, I wouldn’t want to carry that torch,” Gisele wrote in the op-ed.
I guess we should look on the bright side, she didn’t compare herself to a rape victim again.
