Yesterday Famecrawler told you about the traditionalists who are angry with Jennifer Aniston for making comments about single motherhood, proclaiming that she is glamorizing it. Now, Bill O’Reilly is jumping on the bandwagon to tear down the hundreds of thousands of women who raise healthy, happy children on their own.
“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,” Bill said.

“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 continues.
Bill forgets that it is possible that children of single mothers can find father figures in those who are not their biological parent and whom do not live with them, like teachers, sports coaches, those who work with the Big Brothers program and other men they come in contact with.
FOX News contributor Margaret Hoover and FOX News anchor Gretchen Carlson were both on the show and agree with Bill. They feel that young teens wouldn’t be able to comprehend the vast differences between a 40-year-old woman and a teenager raising a child as a single mother.
Do you think this is true? Are teens really confusing themselves with Jennifer? Is the star correct in lending a voice to women who make the choice to raise a child on their own or is she (sigh) tearing down the nuclear family and setting unrealistic expectations?
