Jennifer Aniston Responds to Bill O'Reilly Criticism

by at . Comments

After Bill O'Reilly basically disparaged her and called her destructive to society, Jennifer Aniston has clarified her recent comments about single motherhood.

Doing so, she had some choice words for the Fox News personality.

"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 told People.

The star of The Switch continued: "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."

Jen's new movie is about a woman gets pregnant via a sperm donor. The actress said women no longer have to wait for the perfect guy to start a family.

"Women are realizing it more and more, knowing that they don't have to settle with a man just to have that child," she said, promoting the film. "Love is love and family is what is around you and who is in your immediate sphere."

Perfectly reasonable, especially within the context of the work of fiction she was talking about. But Bill still took offense and made more out of this.

On The O'Reilly Factor, the host called the actress's comments "destructive to our society," and accused her of "diminishing the role of the dad."

"Dads bring a psychology to children that is in this society, I believe, under-emphasized. I think men get hosed all day long in the parental arena."

Whose side are you on?

Jennifer can do what she wants. Single moms can raise their children sound and healthy. The ideal would be to have a mom and a dad. But if you haven´t found the man of your dreams that must not be an obstacle for a woman to become a mom. I totally agree with her. And she never said any comment discriminating the role of the man/father. She’s just saying she hasn’t found anyone yet. And who’s anyone to say what’s right or wrong? Single moms are also good moms. If they don’t think that, then that is also discrimination to them!

WHAT happens if she dies? Money and maturity are pointless in that scenario. There is a reason why we should have two parents to see us thru childhood and early adult life, and it's a game of odds. The third world knows this well and that is why their families work togeather and function in their roles better. Life is hard and there are no do-overs. Its no wonder that most of the world sees us as arrogant, because we are. And extremely selfish to a fault. Its not what we want or believe we should have but what a child is intitled to has to start somewhere and two parents is the best odds for the base neccessities.

We are living in some weird times where right is wrong ,left is right and we voted in an incompetent fool simply because he is black and we felt guilty about discrimination in the past. , we will pay for our misguided actions. Of course Jennifer Aniston is a moron and is not someone to emulate.

People miss the point. Single parents can raise a kid who is normal and very healthy. The chances the kid receives the attention he or she needs is much better with 2 parents however. That's the main point in all this. A single parent has to bust their butt paying the bills by themselves. That equals more time getting watched by someone else.
