Who would’ve ever thought that the voice of reason for self-described feminists would be Pamela Anderson? I’ve said for a while that there’s a big difference between classical feminists and modern/third wave feminists.
Anderson sounds like she agrees.
The 51-year-old model, actress and animal rights activist sat down for an interview with Australia's version of "60 Minutes." Anderson unabashedly spoke about the ills of the #MeToo movement and feminism in general, calling the latter a “bore.”
“I think this feminism can go too far,” Anderson said. “I’m a feminist, but I think that this third wave of feminism is a bore. I think it paralyzes men, I think this #MeToo movement is a bit too much for me. I’m sorry, I’ll probably get killed for saying that.”
Anderson continued by saying that it should be “common sense” for women in Hollywood not to enter a room with a strange man or an executive who answers a door in a “bathrobe”:

“I think some things are just common sense,” Anderson said. “Or, if you go in…get the job. I’m Canadian, I’m going to speak my mind. I’m sorry, I’m not politically correct.”
Obviously, based on Anderson’s tone and demeanor, she was joking when she made the comment about “if you go in” to a movie producer’s hotel room. It might not have been in the greatest of tastes, but that’s what being politically incorrect carries with it in today’s society — the danger that some people will most likely be offended by what you have to say.
Being politically incorrect rocks!
