Phil Robertson's Advice: Marry 15-Year-Olds
If you wait until women are 20, they'll 'pick your pocket' instead of your ducks

(Newser) – Phil Robertson believes in a traditional definition of marriage: One man, and one teenage girl. Now that Robertson is a famous outrage magnet, his detractors are hunting for more potentially controversial quotes, and they appear to have hit gold with a 2009 clip, now circulating on blogs and social media, in which Robertson opines that good women—meaning those who can cook, carry a Bible, and "pick ducks"—are becoming harder to find. Why?

  • "Mainly because these boys are waiting until they get to be about 20 years old before they marry 'em. Look, you wait until they get to be 20 years old, the only picking that's going to take place is your pocket. You got to marry these girls when they are about 15 or 16, they'll pick your ducks."

"You need to check with mom and dad about that, of course," Robertson helpfully adds. He's speaking from experience, Raw Story points out; he began dating his wife Kay when she was 14 and he was 18. He waited until she was 16 to tie the knot. Meanwhile, If you're looking for some less unsettling facts about the Duck Commander's past, check out this Politico slideshow quiz, wherein we learned that Roberson once turned down a chance to play for the Washington Redskins ... because it would have conflicted with hunting season.

I am NEVER watching A&E again. First off, it's just not smart to expose yourself to that kind of hate, stupidity and violence. Also, it's really hard for me to believe that ANYONE, especially a major network, would support that. Typical group dynamics for the Hillbilly Family Robinson, I suppose. EEEEWWWWWWWW.

These "duck" people are a poor representation of what we are, this guy needs to go away.....I am not a true liberal or conservative, somewhere in the middle and these people offend me and should every female out there.....if you are not offended by his banter, shame on you, that just puts women back 100 years.
