In an interview to promote her new movie, The Switch, Jennifer Aniston said that women don’t need men to raise a kid. And since Bill O’Reilly just privately settled a sexual harassment lawsuit, he apparently has the moral authority to call Aniston out on his show. And he did. Then she replied. Bill O’Reilly should shut up now.
“Of course, the ideal scenario for parenting is obviously two parents of a mature age. Parenting is one of the hardest jobs on earth,” Aniston tells PEOPLE exclusively. “And, of course, many women dream of finding Prince Charming (with fatherly instincts), but for those who’ve not yet found their Bill O’Reilly, I’m just glad science has provided a few other options.”
Far be it from me to give Jennifer Aniston credit for anything, but Bill O’Reilly couldn’t have been more owned if he was tied to a tree with a flaming arrow in his head.
In The Switch, the autobiographical movie about her life, Jennifer Aniston plays an unmarried 40-year-old woman who turns to a turkey baster in order to become pregnant. In a recent interview to promote the movie, Jennifer Aniston defended her crushing loneliness and the fact that her vagina must secrete some type of toxic poison by saying that “times have changed” and that selfish women everywhere “don’t have to fiddle with a man to have that child”. Oops. Popeater reports:
When Bill O’Reilly caught wind of her bold statement, he debated the topic of single motherhood on ‘The O’Reilly Factor’ and called out the 41-year-old actress. “She’s throwing a message out to 12-year-olds and 13-year-olds that, ‘Hey you don’t need a guy. You don’t need a dad.’ That is destructive to our society,” O’Reilly railed. Fox News contributor Margaret Hoover and Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson debated alongside O’Reilly admitting young teens won’t be able to differentiate the difference between a 40-year-old woman and a teenager raising a child as a single mother. “She is glamorizing single parenthood,” Carlson said. O’Reilly called out the actress, deeming her message inappropriate. “Jennifer Aniston can hire a battery of people to help her. But she can’t hire a dad. Dads bring a psychology to children that in this society is under emphasized. Men get hosed all day long in the parental arena,” he ranted. “Any man who leaves their children is not a man. Let’s make that perfectly clear. But the fathers that do try hard are under appreciated and diminished by people like Jennifer Aniston,” he continued. Finally, O’Reilly challenged Aniston to come on his show and defend her statement. “If she wants to explain, she can get her butt right in here.”
Not to get any of you confused by my opening statements, but women have been raising kids by themselves for as long as kids have been born. Mainly because most of us are perpetual children who can’t handle responsibility. However, consciously handicapping a child before it’s even born is just as irresponsible. So, I guess I agree with both of them. I also agree that Froot Loops are super sized bites with deliciously intense natural fruit flavors. Flavor bursting, in fact.
