Single Dad Confesses Awful Reasons Why He Refuses To Date Single Moms
Being a father himself, you might expect Richard Cooper to show some respect for single mums out there. But you'd be sorely mistaken.
The Youtuber has hit headlines after a controversial video in which he "warned" men of the "hazards of dating single mothers".
Richard's brutally offensive reasons include the idea that mothers' have "questionable judgment skills", their bodies are "ruined" and their child will "eat your money and destroy your dreams".
Speaking at an event last year, his talk opened with a slide that showed an image of a woman with a baby and read: "Single mother here: please take care of some other man’s ball of flesh that eats money destroys dreams and s***s stress. I offer you my ruined floppy p***y and mental issues!"
He went on to outline nine reasons why a man should never date a woman with a child, starting with how "easy" it was for them to end the relationship.
"When she goes, they go too," he told his crowd. "You’ll never see them again and even though they might have driven you nuts you have double or triple the heartbreak. It’s very easy for them to end the relationship because they’ve done it before. It’s easy for them to move along and just slide into the next relationship."
He also claimed that single mums have questionable judgment skills and said a boyfriend will never be a priority, stating: "Save yourself for somebody else that has the capacity and the time.
Next, he stated that too much time is "eaten up" by the children and alleged that single mums "think the world revolves around her and her kids," adding that her kids will work against you.
Furthermore, the Youtuber - who also doesn't date feminists, women "looking to be rescued" and women "with daddy issues" - claims they are emotionally unavailable and rarely take ownership of mistakes in their lives. He also believes they have a "distorted self-image" that allows them to inflate their ego.
"All you have to do is go on any dating app, you'll see single mums on there they think they're a 10 when they're like a 6. Everybody has had that experience I'm sure," he said.
When news of Richard's talk got out, social media was full of people who were disgusted with his nasty accusations.
"Well this works out fantastically. I refuse to date arrogant, ignorant, ugly, baldy, beardy speccyfoureyed c**ts. So we're on the same team really [sic]," wrote Twitter user @Toodles__Galore.
Another person with the username @dudleygirl85 added: "Single mums should be celebrating that they won't come near them. [sic]"
However, this talk isn't the only time Richard's opinions have reached the public. On his Twitter page, he regularly posts comments about his thoughts on women; this including his hate for "toxic feminism", his assertion that men shouldn't take the male birth control pill because it would make them more "feminine" and his belief that "women don’t care about the struggles men go through, they hang out at the finish line and fuck the winners."
In one post, he writes:
"5 things women don't want you to know
1. They mate switch really fast
2. Relationship equity means nothing
3. They spin plates
4. Women get bored fast
5. Women cheat as much as men [sic]"
In another, he says:
"8 times out of 10 men get destroyed in family court, Google just learned it is paying women more then men, any woman can allege
#metoo without evidence and destroy a man... Sorry ladies, you've had equality for years, the facts show feminism is in fact, seeking revenge. [sic]"
I think it's fair to say, single mothers out there aren't heartbroken.
