12 Of The Worst Celebrity Quotes About Feminism That Show They Have No Idea What It Means

We spend a lot of time talking about feminism here at Gurl, because it’s really important. And lately, the rest of the world has been doing the same – one of the most asked questions in any celebrity interview is, “Would you call yourself a feminist?” That would be fantastic if what everyone had to say actually made sense. Unfortunately, though, there are a ton of quotes about feminism that prove that a lot of people still have no idea what the word really means.

Here’s what it means to be a feminist: you want equal rights for both men and women. That’s it. No, really, it’s that simple. But because of the negative connotation surrounding the word, a lot of people are hesitant to identify as feminists. That unfortunately includes strong female celebrities who could be spending their time empowering their younger fans to identify as feminists also – instead, they are shunning the word, afraid of what it means to call themselves feminists because they obviously don’t understand it. By doing that, they are continuing to spread that negative connotation.

It feels like I am being disappointed by female stars who don’t want to call themselves feminists at least once a month. Celebs who I thought knew better keep saying things about feminism that are completely backwards – or just make zero sense. It’s so frustrating! Here are 12 of the worst celebrity quotes about feminism.

Which of these quotes do you think is the worst? Do you agree with any? Disagree with any? Tell us in the comments.

    Feminism was based on the idea of equality, but it after that happened, the idea changed, and I think that’s why some of the quotes were like “no, because i see men as equals, or no, I like men…”

      I think what he’s trying to say is that this article makes it look like the negative connotation of the word “feminism” comes out of nowhere and that every women should proudly claim to be feminists, but in truth recent radical feminists have a lot to do with it.
      I didn’t read any of the other stuff on this website so I dunno if that’s the case here, but maybe if there weren’t things like #killallmen and other extremist feminism out there, the word wouldn’t be as badly seen. I prefer egalitarianism, it’s more accurate as it doesn’t take a specific group and implies it’s the only one to suffer from discriminations.
