Flying Nun is High on Somethin’: Dumb “Gender-Neutral” Quote of the Day

By Debbie Schlussel
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.


Flying Numbskull Sally Field, Badly in Need of a Dictionary

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”?

Sounds like just another step towards the feminization of America; men should get rid of all their masculine (military, aggressive, competitive) and incorporate feminist, or PC traits. Too bad she doesn’t say this to the terrorists.

So I guess fathering is only a quality or a character trait as well.Fathering is all about responsibilty,management,leadership, and guidance.Women can make great fathers too. Take Hillary for instance.Why, she is a superb fatherly figure to her minions.
If mothers like Sally Field ruled the world, there would be free terrorism and mayhem around the clock.

……..there would be no wars b/c everyone would be dead. Just sheer wisdom from the proclaimed intellect Sally.

Seeing that freak of nature makes me sick. Almost as sick as I am of the flying nun.

I’ve always found this line of reasoning that women are nice, nurturing, peaceful and compassionate to be an absurd generalization. Some of the most vicious, vindictive and physically/psychologically brutal people I know are women.

I think people are being unfair to Sally Field. I think she has a good bit of wisdom here and I think the way that everyone is so rudely dismissing her and making fun of her is unfair. She said that mothering is a quality and a trait. This describe a role in society of Motherhood. It’s the same as when we describe our Lord as Father. We are not saying that the Lord is male. We are describing our relationship as being child to Father. Sally is saying the same thing here. Motherhood is a role not a gender.

Well happy Halloween.
The Beatie girl portrayed in the picture grows some hair, takes male hormones and calls herself a man then is artificially inseminated to allow her to have a child because her “wife” Nancy is a woman.
When is this insanity going to stop?
Just because this mentally ill women pretends to be a man, gets pregnant and we all are supposed to praise her(him)as some new aged praise worthy mother.
What is astounding to me is that Haroon Siddique, the author of the Guardian.co.uk article actually goes along with this insane charade calling Beatie an American man and repeatedly refers to her as him and he throughout the piece.
IMHO-She should have been committed to a Mental Hospital and locked up instead of allowing her to bring a child into the world as twisted as the child will have to endure in that relationship. A case could be made that it is child abuse of the worst kind.

I think it’s very unfair to say stuff about Sally when all she’s doing is speaking her mind. Everyone has their own opinion even if it’s not that good. I personally think it’s brave for her to say what she feels.
