Richard Cooper is like any other dad that you might know… except in some respects. He isn’t really a guy who you think would have a place in his heart for single mothers out there. He doesn’t. Not one bit. The controversial YouTuber has made the rounds in headlines all over the internet after a controversial video showcasing him making hideous comments about women was posted.
He “warned” men of the many “hazards of dating single mothers”. Cooper claims that mothers typically have some “questionable judgment skills”, and that their bodies are “ruined”. He also says that their children would “eat your money and destroy your dreams”.
While giving a talk at an event last year, he opened his piece by showing the audience an image of a woman with a bay. Accompanying the picture was the caption that 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!”
Not exactly words that one would consider to be nice.
He also went on to highlight nine different reasons as to why a man should never date a single mother – beginning with how “easy” it would be for them to end the relationship.
“When she goes, they go too,” he boldly said to the 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 said that single mothers have some questionable judgment skills and that she would never really make her boyfriend a priority. “Save yourself for somebody else that has the capacity and the time,” he advised.
He went on to explain how a single mother would eat too much of a man’s time because she would always involve her kids in the relationship. He says that single mothers “think the world revolves around her and her kids.”
To elaborate further, Cooper – who has sworn off dating feminists as well – claims that single mothers are emotionally unavailable a lot of the time. He even goes as far to say that they wouldn’t even take ownership of the mistakes that they have made in their lives.
In an effort to drive his point even further, he says that single mothers have a distorted self-image and inflate egos.
“All you have to do is go on any dating app, you’ll see single mums on where they think they’re a 10 when they’re like a 6. Everybody has had that experience I’m sure,” claimed Cooper
Naturally, when Cooper’s video made rounds on the internet, a lot of women (and men) were visibly upset and offended by his statements.

Single mums on dating sites are so solipsistic, they almost always have some version of this soundbite:
"My kids come first, but a man has to put me first"
No thanks, I'll pass.

But Richard’s bit in his talk isn’t really the first time that he has made the rounds on social media with regards to his comments about women. On his Twitter page, he posts occasional tweets that revolve around his disgust for women’s issues. He has also referred to feminism as being something that is “toxic”.
He has also asserted that men shouldn’t be taking the new male birth control pills because he claims it would make them more “feminine” and thus worse off. He also believes that “women don’t care about the struggles men go through, they hang out at the finish line and fuck the winners.”
Check out what he wrote about women here in one of his posts:
“5 things women don’t want you to know
- They mate switch really fast
- Relationship equity means nothing
- They spin plates
- Women get bored fast
- Women cheat as much as men [sic]”
And this is what he had to say in another post:
“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]”
It might be safe to assume that single moms out there aren’t particularly fretting over the fact that Richard isn’t making himself available to them.
