Taylor Swift wins award for feminism — Kaley Cuoco, not so much
Taylor Swift and Kaley Cuoco are opposites when it comes to girl power: Swift may often dress like a '50s housewife, but Kaley Cuoco actually acts like one.
The Big Bang Theory star, who wed Ryan Sweeting last New Year's Eve, says she is not a "feminist girl" and has never faced inequality (apparently, she doesn't know about Hollywood's infamous wage gaps between men and women) and her favorite thing to do is serve her man.
"It's not really something I think about," she told Redbook. "Things are different now, and I know a lot of the work that paved the way for women happened before I was around… I was never that feminist girl demanding equality, but maybe that's because I've never really faced inequality," she said.
Cuoco also revealed she cooks for her husband "five nights a week: It makes me feel like a housewife; I love that. I know it sounds old-fashioned, but I like the idea of women taking care of their men. I'm so in control of my work that I like coming home and serving him," she told the mag.
Contrast that with another young female star: Taylor Swift. The "Shake It Off" singer was just named DoSomething.org's No. 1 on their Celebs Gone Good list for 2014, due in no small part to her "feminist awakening," they said.
In an interview with the Guardian back in August, Swift said, "As a teenager, I didn't understand that saying you're a feminist is just saying that you hope women and men will have equal rights and equal opportunities. What it seemed to me, the way it was phrased in culture, society, was that you hate men. And now, I think a lot of girls have had a feminist awakening because they understand what the word means. For so long it's been made to seem like something where you'd picket against the opposite sex, whereas it's not about that at all. Becoming friends with Lena [Dunham] — without her preaching to me, but just seeing why she believes what she believes, why she says what she says, why she stands for what she stands for — has made me realize that I've been taking a feminist stance without actually saying so."
No offense, Kaley, but we think we'd rather hang with TSwift. Our men know how to cook for themselves.
