WATCH: Gavin McInnes Epic Takedown of Idiocy that Single Motherhood Rocks

Single motherhood is not cool! Thanks for pushing back against the destructive, pathological idea that it doesn’t matter if a child is raised by two married parents. Sorry, my selfish sisters. It does!


Single motherhood isn’t always I choice. I get that. Please understand. I know that there are uncontrollable circumstances that result in a woman having to raise a child or children alone without a dad. These situations are heartbreaking, and terrible. The point Mr. McInnes is making is just that, that single motherhood is not something to be celebrated, but rather something to be avoided at all costs. And he’s ABSOLUTELY correct.

Don’t take my word, or Mr. McInnes word for it. No less than a fellow from the liberal Brookings Institution wrote about it in the Washington Post article, “20 years later, it turns out Dan Quayle was right about Murphy Brown and unmarried moms.”

Warning: Graphic Language


Single motherhood is a tragedy, not a cool lifestyle choice. Taking back America isn’t always about taxes and immigration. It’s also about re-establishing traditional morality and our civil society. Why does the Left want to destroy the traditional family? So that more people will be dependent on the government, of course.  It is long past time to proclaim that marriage matters, especially in the lives of children.


  1. Hey Ellen M, it’s always nice to hear from you, and as a single mother yourself, your perspective is especially welcome on this post. I don’t doubt that two-parent homes with abuse, neglect, violence and/or constant fighting are less desirable environments for children than homes without those things, but of course, that’s a bit of a red herring here. What Mr. McInnes is talking about is a piece written by a very self-absorbed woman who appears only interested in herself and not at all in her children, celebrating what most parents concede is a less than ideal situation for children. I don’t have to tell you. Raising children is hard, and it really is a two person job. I don’t want to trivialize the subject, and please don’t be offended, any of you parents out there, but when the husband and I went to adopt a dog, I chose one, and he wasn’t sure that she was the one. I said, “OK, that dog is PERFECT, but if you don’t want her, we won’t get a dog because taking care of a dog is a two person job,” and it is. And that’s just a dog! Just one woman’s opinion. I think we need to encourage marriage before parenthood as the ideal situation, even though, as I said in the post, that isn’t always possible. The situations you mention (abusive, etc.) are cases where it isn’t possible or desirable for the two-parent family to stay intact, but these pathological cases are the exception.
    Thanks again for weighing in! Kudos to you for raising a good citizen. Hug your John for me!
