Amanda Marcotte stands up for single mothers, or something

Um … what?

We not sure what Marcotte is trying to say, but if you’re that one person, she’s waiting to hear from you.

    I’ll bite, who is Amanda Marcotte?

    • ceemack

      My very thoughts.

    She’s a “Brooklyn writer”. Or something. She re-wrote the tweet, yet it still doesn’t make any sense.

  • Guest

    She re-wrote the tweet yet I still can’t make sense of it.

  • mickeyco

    This woman writes for a living and can’t put together a declarative sentence?

      Mandee made two whole posts without obscenity! #NewRecord

      • Charles Smith

        Those two whole posts were obscenities in themselves o.o

    • Pablo

      Writes? I thought it was bleating.

  • Josephine (D)

    1) Who?

    2) Huh?

    If you assemble enough English words together eventually you will form a sentence.

      i guess that what happens when a person reduces herself to nothing but her lady parts.

    • TugboatPhil

      I think Ms Marcotte is trying her best to disprove that theory. So far she appears to have succeeded.

  • Katielee4211

    Was she smokin’ something?

  • ceemack

    Ummmm…”had great guys who dumped them for no reason” is quite a bit different from “married to great guys who divorced them for no reason”.

    Scotchy, scotchy, scotchy.

    I think she’s trying to say that single mothers didn’t choose to be so.

    Well, to that, all I have to say is…the overwhelming majority of single mothers in today’s day in age (not all, obviously) are certainly in the position they are in because of BAD CHOICES!! (E.g., having babies out of wedlock, etc.). But obviously personal responsibility means nothing anymore.

    • Brett McMicken

      of course, if a man was raising a baby alone because the woman didn’t want to be tied down and feel trapped in a marriage, amanda would be saying what a wonderful, courageous thing it was. her type believes that the only input a man has in a relationship and raising a child is a financial input.

  • Brett McMicken

    so, she’s the one who took that fluke course!

  • mary kile

    I tried. I really, really tried, but her posts make no sense. Most of her posts or arguments are based on bigoted assumptions – and that’s not counting that her sentence structure and grammar leave a lot to be desired. I almost got a headache.
    She’s just not worth my time. It’s empty chatter.

  • Sean Minturn

    I wonder if she’s really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

    “Just one person who bashes single mothers to produce these mothers who
    had great guys they adored but they dumped for no reason. Please.”

    1. People claim single mothers are single because despite having great guys who adored them, they dumped them for no reason. And now they want benefits and entitlements, when it’s their fault that they’re single and don’t have 2 salaries to sustain the household.

    2. She is asking for evidence. She’s saying “oh yeah? Will one of you name single mothers who respond to that characterization?”

    I’m not even a native english speaker. It’s not that hard.

    • Adela Wagner

      Still cornfused. Did the “great guy” dump them? Or, did the single woman dump the “great guy”? And either one, for no reason? I say, be prepared for being a single mother, or close your legs, or put a ring on it, or use at least TWO methods of BC. Plenty of choices here.

        It’s very simple. Lots of single mothers are single because the couple couldn’t stay together any longer. It’s not just because of a whim. Very often it’s because after getting her pregnant, the husband/boyfriend disappears and doesn’t want to know nothing ’bout no baby.

    She’s an unhappy person, so likely she was drinking a lot when typing. If you read her writing it’s a very scary world out there for her.

    I wonder who she drunkenly friends on FB. I also wonder if she drunkely hooks up and then beats herself due to the shame of it all.

    I know I would hate my lady parts afterwards.
