So apparently Hilary Duff doesn't know the difference between a feminist and a lesbian... except that they're both yucky!
I'm not, like, a crazy feminist. I think women definitely need men. Like, I couldn't imagine having a girlfriend! There are things that you get from one another, as well as the physical stuff, that are essential. Guys make me feel secure and comfortable, when I'm scared or need attention. They bring stability. And affection. And fun. And drama. You learn so much from a boyfriend. It's hard to put into words I guess.Um. Okay. Just the roll model we want for our little evil sluts in training, no? Since when does being a feminist mean you wouldn't want a man in your life? And since when is it impossible for a girlfriend (if you happened to be homosexual) to provide security, stability, affection, fun, or drama just as much as a boyfriend could?
How about this gem...
I'm not really a flirt, but I am a girl. I'm not a tramp, or a whore, but I do manipulate men when I feel like it. Girls bat their eyelashes, and act like they don't know anything in front of guys they like, or give a little bit of eye contact, but not too much, or a bit of touching. Or being coy. Sure, I do a bit of that.Now I don't particularly have anything against a little eyelash batting, eye contact, or touching. But... manipulation and acting stupid? I just love how she equates that with being "a girl". Not a flirt, tramp, or whore... but just female.
This one doesn't even need a comment:
Women are definitely home-makers. We're obviously very different from men.Or:
I hope I get married. I want to have a husband and two kids and a nice little life baking pies. I'm quite romantic.The above quotes were taken from a recent Observer interview that has everyone talking. And by everyone, we mean all the cool ladies of the Internet including bloggers from Dollymix, Feministing, and of course... the most important women of the blogosphere: us.
This isn't the only Duff faux-pas I found online today. Apparently she also recently made two little kids cry because she refused to give them autographs. Now, I can understand wanting a break from your fans... but attention is the price you have to pay for stardom. I don't care what celebrities do/say to their adult fans, because they should be old enough to understand the business and not go all goo-goo over a stupid signature. But kids - you've got to be nice to them - especially someone who's fan-base is predominantly below the age of 18. Just sign the fucking autograph Hilary, they weren't asking for a kidney.
What ever happened to the sweet Lizzie McGuire we all loved?
