Feminism in itself is not a difficult concept to grasp – it simply means supporting equal rights for women. However, it has somehow become a negative word and some people associate feminism with hating men or not needing men, which has confused people. These 5 celebrities don’t understand the meaning of feminism and completely missed the point when they were asked about it.
Carrie thinks being a feminist could be somehow taken as a negative: “I wouldn’t go so far as to say I am a feminist, that can come off as a negative connotation. But I am a strong female.”
Evangeline thought being a feminist meant behaving like a man: “I’m very proud of being a woman, and as a woman, I don’t even like the word feminism because when I hear that word, I associate it with women trying to pretend to be men, and I’m not interested in trying to pretend to be a man.”
Lady Gaga believes feminists can’t enjoy anything male: “I’m not a feminist. I hail men, I love men, I celebrate American male culture – beer, bars, and muscle cars.”
When asked, Kendall took the honest approach and said she simply doesn’t know much about it: “I don’t know much about it, so I can’t really speak on it… I’m not gonna say much because I’d like to be more educated.”
Shailene missed the point of feminism, saying she thinks women can’t take all of the control: “I think the idea of ‘raise women to power, take the men away from the power’ is never going to work out because you need balance.”
