Mitt Romney's Advice for Recent Female Grads: "Have a Quiver Full of Kids"

Don't expect wealth and power, Romney warned the women of the Southern Virginia University's graduating class. Just get married and make lots of babies!

by Kristen Gwynne - May 3, 2013

This week, Mitt Romney delivered an interesting commencement speech to the (very Mormon populated) Southern Virginia University's graduating class. Sharing his secrets for "abundant living," Romney urged the new grads to go out, get married, and procreate like crazy.

'Get married,' he said, and “Have a quiver full of kids if you can.”

Also, hurry. Staying single until your thirties could be a big mistake. A quiver full of kids aren't born over night.

“Some people could marry but choose to take more time, they say, for themselves. Others plan to wait until they’re well into their 30s or 40s until they think about getting married,” he said,“They’re going to miss so much of living, I’m afraid.”

Girls, forget about establishing a career before you get married or have children. Why spend your body's prime child-bearing years working, when you could be breast-feeding on a much smaller salary?

As Romney reminds the class of Southern Virginia University, wealth is not guaranteed. Not everybod knows how to cut corners, exploit workers, and watch the profits rise. Even fewer are born into the power necessary to accumulate wealth in America. Anybody biologically capable, however, can make a quiver full of babies.

“I don’t think God cares whether you get rich,” he warned the crowd.“I don’t think he hopes that your business will make a huge profit. I know a lot of religious people who think God will intervene to make their investments grow. Or he’ll get them a promotion. To make their business a success. But life on this earth is about learning to live in a place where God does not make everything work out for good people.”

BUT. If you find a mate and procreate, you're all good!“Every one of you here today as a graduate can live an abundant life,” he told the students.“Every single one of you. You will not all be rich and famous and powerful, but each of you can live an eminently successful, rewarding, abundant life.”

Romney, on the other hand, will remain rich and famous and powerful. But not everybody can do that. So just shut up and get pregnant, already.

Yep, there's no doubt in my mind where the Mittster wants women to be; in the home, barefoot and pregnant, chained to a stove. I hope the women listen to this idiot will have the sense to IGNORE him.

This is just one more reason for me to rejoice that Mitt LOST the 2012 election, and lost BADLY.

The man's stupidity is incredible. I'd love to have been there to see the reactions of the women who'd just spent years working to get their degrees, when he told them to forget about the dreams they've been working so hard for, and just have kids instead.

Yep, I wish I could have seen their reactions too. I'm sure there were a LOT of rolled eyes at THAT statement.

It's obvious to me that the Mittster's beliefs about woman are STUCK IN THE PAST by at least two centuries, if not more. Thank goodness he LOST in 2012!

Oh PLEASE. I'm very glad for the availability of reliable contraception that has kept me pregnancy-FREE the last 15+ years. Creepy guys like you and Mitt, who think a woman's ONLY valid purpose is to pop out kids, are guys a woman needs to RUN from, as far away as possible.

Motherhood: OPTIONAL, not required.
