Speak it, sister!

Mary Louise Parker is the latest celebrity to speak out against Bill O'Reilly's dumbass, ignorant comments regarding the MANiston and single parenting!

She says:

"Why is being a single mother destructive? Give me a break. He sounds like an idiot. Who is he again? Maybe he’s right, I don’t know. I don’t think you necessarily have to be part of a traditional nuclear family to be a good mother. A lot of children from traditional nuclear families have really unhappy childhoods, and they have dysfunctional, distant parents who don’t pay attention to them. Also, some people don’t plan on being single parents. It’s not like you’re sitting at home and thinking, ‘Wow, I’d really like to do this by myself. I’d love to wake up six times a night and change diapers and have nobody to help me. That’d be great!’ I certainly didn’t do that. I think that opinion is pretty narrow-minded. People like him - and I don’t even know who he is, so this is just a guess… they usually just say shit like that for attention. He probably comes from a nuclear family and didn’t get enough attention as a child."

Agreed 100%!

It's unbelievable that that kind of idiocy is still rampant!

UGH.

Thoughts??

  1. 1

    Loves Mary…I agree!



  2. 2

    You going on about Idiocy is like Katy Perry going on about getting slutty to promote crappy music!



  3. 3

    You know what's idiotic? The fact she has no idea who Bill O'Reilly is. That says more her and her obliviousness to the political world than anything else.



  4. 4

    I like Ms. Parker but O'Reilly is right. Two parents (hopefully one mom and one dad) is the ideal for raising children. People can drive cars with their legs but that doesn't mean that it is ideal. Sounds like either Ms. Parker is still bitter that Billy Cudrup ditched her and their son or she is too wimpy to go to match.com for another husband for her and a father to her child.



  5. 5

    Well said, she has some balls and as a single mother she is entitled to her opinion. Bill needs to educate himself some more, before stupid statements about movie characters, when reallity is already far worse.



  6. 6

    I don't think Bill O'Reilly thinks that single women should not have babies. I think he wishes that fathers would be involved, as all studies show would be better for the child. Of course, we can't help the fathers who are shitty fathers but I would hope that most men would be good examples for their child.



  7. 7

    I'm not B. O'Oreilly fan, but MLP is completely taking Bill's statement out of context. He didn't say single mothers' (due to a death of a partner, or divorce) are not capable of being good parents, or that a child growing up with only one parent would be destructive. Rather, he said that women who ACTIVELY SEEK to become a single mother, are being careless, selfish, and irresponsible. I wholeheartedly agree, and to think otherwise is completely moronic, and epitomizes the self entitlement mentality that inflicts much of today's society.



  8. 8

    its a fact asswipe. go to any strip club or jail. ask any porn star. no dad in the home for sure. its possible that youre kid will turn out ok. but its all about you mom..not about your kid. who cares about the odds. of course theyll never learn what a real relationship between a man and woman is either as they watch you desparately look for men and then say you hate them. sounds perfect!



  9. 9

    I have been both a single mom and a married one. A two parent family is definitely the preferable way to raise a child. These women are speaking from a place of financial security, nanny help etc. Do you honestly think they are in a place to justify promoting single motherhood. It is difficult. There are many sacrifices normal single parent families make. Kids spend alot of time in childcare, or latchkey, single parents have to work harder for EVERYTHING for their child(ren). My children, now in a 2 parent family have way more balance. These women are not "normal" women. Normal single moms are able to get botox, live in babysitters, work when they feel like it and have personal shoppers for their infants. I don't remember ever, as a single mom having the funds to jet away to the tropics for a break. At least as a married one I can now pee with the door closed. Many wind up in this situation for a reason beyond their contol, however they most definitely should not seek it.

    Re: raz2010 – Thought it was pretty obvious she was being facetious. She clearly knows who he is.

    As to her comments, it didn't seem bitter - just realistic to me. I doubt there are a whole lot of single parents out there who planned for it to all be their responsibility - not none, but probably few. And even fewer who don't need a hand somewhere along the way, whether from relatives or others.



  11. 11

    Awesome. Just another reason I love this lady!



  12. 12

    After what she went through with that scoundrel, Billy Crudup, who left her after 7 years together, 7 months pregnant with his child, for that chick who apparently lacks any integrity, she is truly an authority on the subject. I'm a bit in Awe of Mary Louise Parker for her ability to not only survive that kind of heartbreak but to still rise up and achieve success when it would be perfectly understandable to just turn bitter or give up. Kudos to MLP. Historically, Bill O'Reilly appears to say idiotic things for attention. He probably got more attention from his 2 parents when he misbehaved or acted terribly, hence this unfortunate pattern. I realized a long time ago that the man has very little intelligent thought to add to any discourse, and thereby just ignore him. However, I'm glad that MLP responded on behalf of single mothers.



  13. 13

    she is awesome.. bill o'reilly is one of the most old fashioned idiotic people in the media today.. seriously.. next he is going to start telling us things were better when we had no electricity and we should read by candlelight.. hello.. this is the year 2010.. you don't need a mommy and a daddy to be in a loving home.. you may just have a mom or just a dad or two moms or two dads.. as long as it is a loving home, you are in a better place than the majority of this country.. the fact is there is no formula to raising a good child.. just providing security, understanding, and love that's it
    and to be honest this push for the typical nuclear family is a joke..
    we should be raising the next generation to be more tolerant and resilient becuase the world is not a cookie cutter place..



  14. 14

    AGREEEED



  15. 15

    I love her even more now. Fuck Bill O'Reilly. I was raised by a single parent and I'm as normal as can be expected! I couldn't imagine being brought up by a "nuclea traditional family!" Life isn't simple and mommy and daddy aren't always going to be there for you when things go wrong.



  16. 16

    Didn't her baby daddy ditch her when she was pregnant? She may still have some lingering men issues.



  17. 17

    Re: annoydbyeu – THANK YOU. I couldn't agree more with your comment. And I must say, as a stay at home mom I don't know what I'd do without my husband. It's nice to be able to share responsibilities with someone. It saves your sanity. Not only that but I've met so many people who are suffering because they have an absentee parent. I'm not saying that all situations are this way, but it is IDEAL to have two parents or at least two parental figures in the lives of the children. I know so many strong single parents but more times than not, they tell me that they would love to have a significant helper/partner to raise the child. Every situation is different but MLP needs to realize that Bill O'reilly was talking about "real" America…not Hollywood.



  18. 18

    Love her!



  19. 19

    isn't he the same douche bag that sexually harassed a female co-worker ? Who would listen to him anyway ?

  20. Lyns says – reply to this


    20

    True true…but why does she have to keep saying that she doesn't know who he is? That's just silly on her part.



  21. 21

    I completely agree! I was raised with a single parent and I turned out just fine! I know a lot of people in my town who were raised with both parents and in the end turned out completely fucked up!



  22. 22

    Bill O'Reilly is the ultimate hypocrite. He sexually harassed a younger female employee while being married. He left pervy messages on her answering machine. It was well documented.



  23. 23

    If not intelligent, at least she's attractive.



  24. 24

    Technically, God selected Mary to be his "single mother", didn't he. She had a husband that didn't have to stick with her. But she sure was a "single parent" for a lot of the story. I have to go back to the whole argument when the tv show Murphy Brown made their lead character a single mom. This is such an OLD SUBJECT and done so much better during the hay-day of that show!!



  25. 25

    Re: annoydbyeu – I couldn't agree with you more! I lost one of my parents at a very early age (5) and some of these women are not looking at this situation from the child's perspective. Mary Louise Parker had two parents growing up, so she doesn't know what her child is missing. I agree, that with Crudup, it wasn't her fault, but she did go on to adopt a baby girl on her own, therefore deliberately creating a one parent home. I normally despise O'Reilly, Ann Coulter, Laura Ingraham, but on this subject I agree with them 100%. Why is having a balanced family "rampant idiocy"?



  26. 26

    Re: raz2010 – MLP is clearly being sarcastic in regard to not knowing who Bill O'Reilly is, and her awareness of politics has little to do with the subject at hand, which is about being a single mother. She knows quite a bit on that topic. It's not necessary to insult her when she is merely speaking up in defense as a single mother.



  27. 27

    She is so on point. and if anyone knows she does her dickhead boyfriend left her when she pregnant. sometimes boys don't want to be men and take care of their responsibilities so the mother is left all alone and thats not her fault bill o' the rapist is an asshole.



  28. 28

    Isn't she the whore wo had a baby out of wedlock. Her boyfriend pounded the old skank then drop her like your mommie did you cumsucker.



  29. 29

    No fucking kidding girl! I am an only child of 2 asshole selfish parents who completely left me alone and ignored me. It caued HUGE personality problems in me. I am a mess and freely admit it. I did alot of things that I see now were signs I needed help back then, but my parents refused to put me into "that liberal therapy crap." GAWD I wish I had been raised by a single mother or a single father or ANY single person that just wanted me and maybe told me so. Sorry for the rant. XOXO.



  30. 30

    Re: bobo99 – Thats not true look at the people that want on to do positive things in their life with out a father. Alex haig Jr. , Ed Bradly, Ricky Henderson just to name a few. two parents dosn't always mean the kids will grow up and go on to do somthing positive even with two parents in the house. if the kid grows up with violence in their lives they will be a gang banger. if they grow up watching their father or mother cheating on their spouse then they will do the same. and if they grow up with their parents making fun and hateng people that are diffrent from them then they will hate. That exmple you gave is bullshit.



  31. 31

    It's unbelievable that that kind of idiocy is still rampant!

    You mean you, Prez, don't you?



  32. 32

    What's laughable is that men think women need to lock down a man or risk being the *gasp* single mother. How about them as single fathers? Deadbeat dads? No pressure on them to lock down a woman. How's this for dem apples: Women don't need men. If they weren't around to hold women down all the time, they'd be lightyears ahead of where they are now. You know, equal pay for equal work, no more one-sided sex life, judgment, etc. Bill O is scared and it shows. Too bad for them, the progress train goes full steam ahead.



  33. 33

    pretty sure its science that kids do way better with two parents rather than one



  34. 34

    He's spouting complete BS. Single parents have been raising children successfully for decades.



  35. 35

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – Biggoted Asshat.



  36. 36

    Re: mlj1981 – What about older or younger women who are gay or straight (although I get the feeling you're not on board with the gay thing) and want to have children, but are running out of time or have fertility problems that will increase with age (yes, this affects younger women, too. I have a friend with one overy who opted to have a child b/c her chances of having one later were slim to nil)? If the woman is strong, healthy, financially stable, and has good male family members or friends, what is the problem?



  37. 37

    Re: bobo99 – Where is all this woman-bashing coming from? 5 of my friends were molested by their father or grandfather; one was molested by her father and 2 brothers. But hey, bitching about that is moronic, right? I also know that 2 parent (straight) homes can be HIGHLY diysfunctional, myself included. But my Mom is a STRONG ASS WOMAN and she raised us with morals, work ethic and compassion. And Billy Crudup was the ass. And please don't ASSUME that women who choose to have children on their own are desperate or man-haters. Every woman I know generally love guys, faults and all (unless they pull a 'Billy' or something). Statements like that are ignorant, bitter, spitefull and mean.



  38. 38

    well said. kudos for her saying it as well. i completely agree. of course a happy mother and father would be ideal but single parents can raise their children just as well as a couple, if not better sometimes.



  39. 39

    Nobody has said that children raised by single parents can't succeed or be normal. What they have said is that children raised by a traditional two parent home will do better- and statistics prove that. Shut your fucking mouth Perez, you obviously know NOTHING about a decent family.



  40. 40

    First of all, MLP took his comments out of context. Second of all, Bill O'Reilly didn't express himself especially well on the topic. (BTW, didn't we go through this whole "scandal" a million years ago when Dan Quayle said something stupid about Murphy Brown?) For those who actually LISTENED to Bill O'Reilly, he had a few points. He doesn't agree with the idea that children don't need a father and/or positive male role model. It's been proven time and time again that kids with both parents do better in life. It should be noted that he said that any man that abandons his children is not a real man. Amen. He also feels that some people are dumb enough to emulate famous people or take their words as fact. There is a big difference between someone of Jennifer Aniston's maturity and wealth raising a baby by herself and a girl in her teens or 20s with no means of supporting it. He simply said that he thought it was irresponsible for her to comment that it's okay to have a baby without a father because some dumb @$$ (I'm paraphrasing here) will go out and do it just because Jennifer Aniston said so.



  41. 41

    Parker didn't hear what Bill said and she didn't watch it. She's reacting to heresay an I think she sounds like an idiot.



  42. 42

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – Hello I'm the 21st century, please join me.



  43. 43

    MARY, you're absolutely 100% right !!!!!!!!!!



  44. 44

    Re: raz2010 – Bill O' Reilly isn't politics, just biased bullshit on fox news.



  45. 45

    Didn't Neil Fifer slam her in the ass (repeatedly) while she was on The West Wing?



  46. 46

    Nice…take the statement out of context once again. If she doesn't know who he is, how does she know what he said? O'Reily is speaking of the ideal or dare I say it….right way. What IS best is to have to functioning, loving parents. You rail on every single mom you don't like assclown. Your hypocracity is so transparent…no pun



  47. 47

    Bill O'Reilly was raised in a loving home by nurturing parents. I've always defended the uber liberal Miss Parker, because I felt sorry for her when her boyfriend of 7 years, actor Billy Crudup, left her when she was 7 months pregnant, for another uber liberal actress, Claire Danes. Miss Parker's hope for a perfect nuclear family was shattered because of that unfortunate incident. Claire Danes left Billy Crudup for Hugh Dancy. So sad. For Billy. What's always irked me about Billy? He said he NEVER wanted to become a famous actor, one that is followed by the papparazzi because that would take away from the craft. His heart belonged to the stage. That was his passion and NOTHING would ruin that. Then Billy becomes the voice for Mastercard. He makes millions doing commercials. Ads are a LONG way from the stage. Liberalism….priceless! Bill O'Reilly KNOWS what he's talking about…at ALL times.



  48. 48

    When boys become teenagers and there is only a single mother in the home, they often become disrespectful and run wild. There is no father in the home to set them straight. I have seen this situation many times. Also, if something happens to the only parent, then what? Not always a back-up to raise the child.



  49. 49

    Re: M.t. Dickinson – LMAO!!!



  50. 50

    Just keep encouraging single girls to have babies. You are dooming them to poverty. Talk about irresponsible.



  51. 51

    I do agree!! Mary Louise Parker I'm a little worried about you that YOU DON'T KNOW WHO BILL O'REILLY IS!! He's been around for a long time, stop tweetering and surf the channels!! By the way, who are you exactly? MY POINT IS BILL IS AN OLD DINOSAUR AS A COMMENTATOR BUT HE WAS WRONG IN
    SAYING THIS AND I'M SURE HE HAD SECOND THOUGHTS HOW HE SAID IT.



  52. 52

    Please stop pushing an agenda, and start talking about Hollywood buzz.



  53. 53

    I left my husband of 13 years after he made the adult decision to "try" crack. Needless to say, he became a full blown crackhead in no time–lying, stealing, losing his job, multiple arrests. Finally I had enough and kicked him the hell out, because he refused to get help and save his family. Should our kids really have endured that nightmare for the rest of their childhood Mr. O'Reilly, or did I do the right thing by kicking him to the curb and raising my kids on my own? BTW, it's 10 years later and he's still an alcoholic crackhead with mental problems. Nothing's changed, except my are doing great!



  54. 54

    Re: pghamy

    I agree! Well said.



  55. 55

    Umm I don't think she responded AT ALL to the point O'Reilly made.
    She's just running her mouth, missing the main points he made, well at least for the first time since her hubby left her she's getting a little attention.

  56. uyeah says – reply to this


    56

    Overreacting and exaggerating a little bit? She must be desperate for attention. We've all moved on!!



  57. 57

    Re: mariascredit – What the fuck are you talking about? I didn't say anything bigoted, you whore of a woman!



  58. 58

    Re: M.t. Dickinson – Actually, you dumb motherfucker, I'm probably more liberal than you are. I support gay marriage and have no problem with plural marriage either. I think EVERY SINGLE DRUG should be legal. I think prostitution should be legal. LOL You think you're the herald of a new age? You are a fucking idiot. One mom and one dad is the ideal and NOTHING will change that.



  59. 59

    whoever she is shes right!



  60. 60

    Re: SlickWilley – You are such a low life…speck of fly gizmo~yck~



  61. 61

    Bill O'Reilly is a shock jock! He is also a misogynist and annoying as hell. Yes it's ideal to have a two parent family…so? So it's better and easier on all parties. Duh. But if you are loaded and have a supportive family and want to go and have a baby through artificial insemination…go right ahead! Just remember a baby changes your life forever and it's never easy. But that's alright~what's a bigger problem are the dysfunctional people out there who think it's ok to have kids and then not take care of them properly much less abuse them or themselves while raising them. Being a child raising a child is a HUGE problem. Being MLP with loads of job prospects and $$ isn't. Cussing and calling each other names on the blog is just a plain waste of time and a disgusting display and I am always baffled when I see such sickening nonsense…hint hint Eldridge and Slick Willee…grow up.



  62. 62

    And speaking of idiocy being rampant Parker makes this little gem of an observation "
    "He probably comes from a nuclear family and didn’t get enough attention as a child."

    Well yes, he probably does . It is the norm. She's just yet another star so out of touch with the real world and what it's like to be a single mother that she doesn't think fathers need to be involved with raising their children All fine and dandy for Mary Louise and Jennifer. They can afford nannies to raise their kids. Most single mothers want desperately for the father to be present.



  63. 63

    I



  64. 64

    um… you people are fucking retarded.. I can speak from personal experience.. my dad was a dead beat didn't help my mom with anything and she didn't need his help.. she raised me ON HER OWN while finishing college.. we studied together and were both extremely successful in school.. I skipped a grade and graduated a year early becuae my mom wasn’t dealing with anything but raising me and being a good example.. she has said it many times that if she could do it all over she would do it the same way.. Depending on the man they can much more of a hassle than a help.. my mom became a college professor so I could get reduced tuition and she pushed me to excel.. two parents might have been the norm or the ideal in the fifties.. but these days it really doesn’t matter who is raising a child as long as they are in a loving and encouraging environment!!!! People pushing their “traditional nuclear” family agenda should shut their mouths and realize that all they are doing is trying to tell kids that they are not being raised right because they don’t have mommy, daddy, 2.5 kids, and a lap dog.. it’s 2010 people get over it..



  65. 65

    my mother taught me to be an independant woman and not to depend on a man.. I hate women who complain about not having a man there to help..
    I know that in my life I have not depended on anyone but myself and that has made me very successful and I credit that to my mother and seeing what a true woman is capable of.. I am much happier in my relationships than any of my friends becuase I don't depend on my man for anything.. nothing
    my friends (many from nuclear families) are always searching for a man to take care of them.. it's sad that these woman grew up seeing women as needing men in their lives
    i'm not a huge Jenn Anniston fan but she is one more woman showing the next generation that they can do ANYTHING on their own!



  66. 66

    If we're still talking about the one Jen Aniston comment O'Reilly made, he wasn't bashing single parenthood overall. He was talking about someone deciding to be a single parent. Obviously a married couple doesn't become parents in the hope of getting divorced or damaging their children. Come on, people.



  67. 67

    what i'm saying exactly is that women don't need men to raise babies.. single women are successful parents and if someone chooses to be a single parent … awesome.. teach your daughter to be as independant as you and she may grow up to be successful and happy not needing a man.. when did women's lib start to take a backseat to right wing crazy molding of american families.. hello not the sixties..



  68. 68

    True, but this is almost older than me!



  69. 69

    Re: raz2010 – I think she does but just wanted to snub him. The only reason I know about him is because he is a joke.
