Former Flying Nun Sally Field hasn’t gotten over the overwhelming attention she garnered at last year’s Emmy Awards, when she said, “If mothers ruled the world, there would be no G-d-damned wars,” as part of her anti-war rant.
Now, she’s told Ladies Home Journal (May 2008 issue) that “mothers” are also men:
I don’t think mothers are only female. I think mothering is a quality, a character trait. Mothering is about responsibility. There are plenty of men who are great, great mothers. Nelson Mandela is a great mother.
HUH? Must get my new age double-speak decoding ring to decipher.
As far as I know, this is the only “male” mother, and according to his DNA/chromosomes, he’s not really male . . . .
Remember Sally Field’s exhortation at another awards show, “You Like Me, You Really Like Me!”? Um, no, we really don’t.
Exit Question: How does Sally Field get featured in a magazine, whose title includes the word “Ladies”?
