Actress Under Fire for Praising 'Valuable' Role of Women as Nurturers at Home
Newsbusters ^ | April 11, 2014

Posted on 04/12/2014 9:07:22 AM PDT by SMGFan

Actress Kirsten Dunst came under attack from nasty feminists on the Internet for remarks she made in the U.K. edition of Harpers Bazaar magazine.

"I feel like the feminine has been a little undervalued," Dunst said. "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 mum created. And sometimes, you need your knight in shining armour. I’m sorry. You need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman. That’s why relationships work."

She’s basically confirming what Terri Land said about women making different choices.

She is apologizing because, in today’s liberal world, the liberals don’t believe that a man should be a man, and a woman should be a woman. In this world of 50+ fluid gender configurations, liberals consider her blunt statements about men and women to be irrational.

Someday and maybe soon, the illogical and destructive liberals will be securely in the minority or we will all simply realize that they are already in the minority, and then the repercussions of a free exchange of ideas will no longer be as violent

I am so done with being screamed at for recognizing natural law

That’s not an apology, it’s sentence structure. Similar to when FReepers say “Sorry, but McCain’s still a RINO.”

I think her “I’m sorry.” was clearly a “you feminazis have it wrong” thing.

Gee, I hope you forgot the sarcasm tag...

I supported my wife while she raised our family instead of some nameless, faceless, dipshit daycare worker who doesn't give a crap about my kids...I also treat her like a queen...because being at home mom is way tougher than working a job...

I can guarantee you I'm no sucker...

We need to draw a distinction here between feminists and lesbians.

I think we throw them all together in one bag, to our disadvantage. The lesbian group is much narrower and much more aggressive. Some women who consider themselves "feminists", such as Sarah Palin, are conservatives.

It's about semantics and pragmatics, and the left are way ahead of us.

I'm sure you are being sarcastic.

If not, she is a wealthy actress and she is a "goddess."

And you know if you say anything common sense these days, do so at your own risk.

No. No sarcasm.

And if she is wealthy then she personally has no need to sucker some guy into being her “knight in shining armor.”

As for her being a actress — that’s a far cry from goddess in my book.

Kudos to her! Just went up on my respect scale.
I have said this before. If people would, IN THEIR OWN FAMILY AND FRIENDS, stop tolerating this crap, it would end quickly.

Liberals only do what they do because they have become emboldened by no blowback. Take for example the DU styled “I told my right wing uncle off at thanksgiving dinner!” type crap. They probably didn’t, but all the good little libs think it’s a growing trend because their online buddy said so!..and so it becomes a self fulfilling prophecy that feeds on itself.

Give them no quarter. When it starts, hammer them through a wall and when Granny gets upset, tell her to blame the idiot causing the strife, not the people trying to stop it. Rinse repeat every time it happens.

It has to start somewhere and we should do what we can when we can. Or they will progress to full Nazism in short order. Hell they are already in more than a couple instances.

Preach, Brother!

My wife of 22 years stayed home when our four kids were young. She worked part time when they went to school, and is now working full time as our oldest two are in college; going into teaching and law school. When the last two are out of college, we'll have significant income and resources. She is every inch a "goddess" and deserves everything I can offer.

No worries; I think we all know she’ll be coming out in the next day or two “clarifying” her comments.

Just like Republicans, she’ll get wobbly and cave to the wishes of the Godless Left. Count on it!

"She just wants some sucker to support her financially, AND treat her like some kind of “goddess.”"

Well, that's traditional marriage, though, isn't it? The wife stays home while the husband works outside the home. Ideally she is treated like a goddess, and he is treated like a king.

I hope for your sake you get to experience that latter part one day (my husband seems to like it). But somehow I have my doubts that you will.

Newsbusters has simply cut and pasted some text from Harper's Bazaar UK. That's where "mum" would have been transcribed. It would have been the same in the Daily Mail where a lot of FR stories come from.

Not a Christian marriage. Without mutual respect between husband and wife, a married couple are not following God's plan.
