Jumping in late, but given that she's said in the past that Christian wives are to submit to their husbands *and* that she's made large decisions in her life and career based on her husband's decree (for lack of a better word), I think it was a valid question. Completely.
"And politically correct is the worst term, not just because it’s dismissive, but because it narrows down the whole social justice spectrum to this idea that it’s about being polite instead of about dismantling the oppressive social structure of power.
Fun Fact: When you actively avoid being “PC,” you’re not being forward-thinking or unique. You’re buying into systems of oppression that have existed since before you were even born, and you’re keeping those systems in place."
