Note to reader: Since she’s fond of dividing people into arbitrary groups, the terms “Conservative and Liberal” are used to categorize people as defined by Ann Coulter purely for the sake of this post. There is one group of people that take precedence on this web-site at all times: Mothers.
It was on Larry King in early 2009 the great Ann Coulter announced:
“Conservative women have more intense orgasms than Liberal women”
How enlightening — she sounds like a real, life expert! Does her own research I’m sure.
She’s probably started a trend now. ”Conservative” women thinking they’ve got a leg up on “Liberal” women in the bedroom. But how is that possible when ”Liberals” so clearly have all the evidence on their side? You know, all the babies who eventually turn into strippers and criminals:
From the January 5 edition of Fox News’ Hannity & Colmes:
COLMES: Now, look, let’s talk about — let’s talk about your book. How about that?
COULTER: I would love to.
COLMES: All right. Now, you talk about “Single motherhood is like a farm team for future criminals and –
COLMES: — social outcasts.”
COLMES: So you’re putting down single mothers.
COULTER: What I am saying –
COLMES: “We have a term for youngsters involved in children of divorces, or as I call them, future strippers.”
COULTER: What I am saying is –
COLMES: How sensitive of you.
COULTER: Yes, it’s very sensitive. Well, and it’s something that needs to be said. What I’m saying is there is no better example of victimizers who are treated like victims than single mothers. This was not an accident that the illegitimacy rate has gone up 300 percent since 1970….We have 30 years of analysis on what — on what single motherhood produces, and it produces crime.
Certain as I am that Ann Coulture is controversial, blond and has a following, when I saw this I also needed know how many kids she had and how long she was married. After all, she sounded like a reliable expert on sex and Motherhood. I mean I really had to know since I am an illegitimate outcast of a certain single Mother myself and she had never interviewed me.
So I did some homework. A quick investigation turned up the evidence and an interesting tidbit: we share a birthday, December 8th. Lucky me, a cosmic connection!
Married? No. Probably wise since all of her engagements were broken.
Virgin? No one is willing to admit otherwise
Mother? No. Obviously
Conservative? Of Course
This all made me wonder…in all of her ”Conservative sexual pleasure research”, did she risk the creation of her own spawn, dooming an innocent being to the hell of growing up Coulter and ”illegimate”?
I also took some time to read up on some of her views and the great theme is “Personal Responsibility and Free Markets Solve All Problems Except for Problems Mothers Create”.
I can find some common ground with Ann on the personal responsibility issues. We all have to be responsible for ourselves and our own. The only difference that I would add: We need to be responsible to each other, a lesson preached in Christianity — and she should know, she’s a “perfected Jew”.
I realize it’s hard for her consider a concept of shared responsibilities even in light of all her Christian perfection. Only because it is best understood when living as a Mom — whether it’s in India, China or America; whether you are Catholic, Muslim or Buddhist.
Yet, where is her personal responsibility? If she wants to see a nice large society of conservatives, Christians and capitalists, it is her responsibility to birth or adopt at least one. It seems Ms. Coulter has left that responsibility to others.
Being a responsible Mom means you’ve had to take yourself off the path our country and Ann dicates to be the superior path. As a Mom you have to trust in a friendly society for one clear purpose:
To be responsible and dedicated to someone else whose needs are greater than your own.
Ms. Coulter clearly has not had this experience and it shows.
In Coulter-friendly terms, all Moms invest time, energy and resources in another person so that commodity (i.e. person) may produce a high return in society.
Whether or not a Mom gives birth as a single woman by choice or becomes one because her husband’s neglect, abandonment or death, Moms must always be able to provide the very basics for their children. With $1 in the bank or $1,000,000.00. Especially in America.
Mothers everywhere work very hard at home and in business. Life as a Mom is never freeloader’s life, contrary to what many like Ann would say. Never. I realize Ann’s point is that there are people who exploit America’s very convoluted legal and financial system.
But they did not invent it. At no point in our American history have Mothers obtained any kind of power to truly influence the financial system.
While she denounces the lives of single Mothers, I would not be surprised to learn that she collects a government Section 8 check as an owner of investment rental property housing a single Mom somewhere in America. Hippocrits like Ann Coulter tend to rationalize maximizing the investment of a dollar over investments in children.
Ms. Coulter may hate it but reproduction happens. I think we should just send her off to the Third World. She would see for herself that access to cash and clean water does little to stop poor nations from becoming poor nations of one billion.
We should be able to Celebrate the abundance of life in a country as prosperous and educated as the United States. But even Ann Coutler knows there really is no place for Moms in America, even rich, perfected, educated ones like herself.
Motherhood would have gotten in the way of her opportunity sit at a Fox News desk and manifest imagined views on the topic of Motherhood and (perhaps) sex. Her schedule would certainly be too full tending to the time commitments of people more important than Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh.
Whether it is in the areas of healthcare, childcare or education, it’s the collective actions of all Mothers to create pathways that will best determine the future for our children. We know something about these issues. It’s up to us, not the Ann Coulters of the world.
Any statement in favor of hindering a Mother’s success, single or otherwise, deminishes the work of Mothers everywhere. Once you’re a Mom, you are connected to all Mom’s and their children.
And Motherhood is serious work. Ann’s messages are contrary to the enduring tide of life that Mothers create and even the core teachings of her own Christianity.
It’s troubling that Ann Coulter can have so many followers since she does not spend much time “walking in anyone else’s shoes”.
While some dispute it, I do believe Ann Coulter is a woman. But she is no Mom.
So to Ann Coulter and her fine friends: I, along with many others, proudly take my place as The Ultimate Outcast (x2).
A shining example of a single Mother’s success: Today a Mother, happily married — Perfected!
