Kirsten Dunst Said an Unwise Thing About Women

Kirsten Dunst harpers cover 2014I don’t mind when other women say things like “My job is being a mother.” Not only is being a mother one of the hardest and most important “jobs” of all, I think if that’s what fulfills you and makes you happy then who am I to shake my head and hope there’s something more to life than stretching out my vagina until it’s the size of a hula hoop?

These days, we see more and more that any gender or sexuality can take on the idyllic role of “mother” and “father,” which is why Kirsten Dunst’s old timey comments about a woman’s place seemed odd.

She recently told Harper’z Bazaar UK:

I feel like the feminine has been a little undervalued. We all have to get our own jobs and make our own money, but staying at home, nurturing, being the mother, cooking — it’s a valuable thing my mom created. And sometimes, you need your knight in shining armor. I’m sorry. You need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman. That’s why relationships work …

I’m sure she just wasn’t thinking and didn’t realize that she just told every American woman with ancestors who worked so hard to have equal rights like voting and letting their asses be more than just a handrest for real-life Mad Men to go back to the kitchen…

Certain women should definitely not share their opinions and just do what they do best. In this case, acting in totally enjoyable movies like Bachelorette and How to Lose Friends and Alienate People.
