Big Bang actress "I'm not a feminist"

DAILY DISH
Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting: ‘I’m not a feminist’

Actress Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting does not consider herself a feminist, saying she loves to cook and “serve” her husband Ryan Sweeting.

“The Big Bang Theory” star is well aware that the advances made by women’s rights groups in the past have paved the way for her both personally and professionally, but that doesn’t mean she identifies as a feminist.

She tells Redbook magazine, “It’s not really something I think about. 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

_____________ comments following article _________

I'm happy for her that she's never faced inequality. I hope she never finds out what a gift that is. But somehow, like actresses before her, she will likely make the poor career choice of turning 40. Let's see how she feels when geeky costars are still getting work (and the girl) and she's the answer to a trivia question.


How nice it is to have a choice or not face inequality... hey wait, that sounds feminist to me.

3. The typical young person. Has no sense of history or what they can lose, so they don't vote.

The consummate Obama voter who let old gun hugging racists take Congress in 2010.

Lashing out at other people is not cool in this context.

Besides, the PARTY caused 2010 by spending the previous two years demoralizing the base. If you're a political party and you want your base to turn up at the polls, its on you as the party to fire them up.

Frankly, I think the Dem hierarchy THREW the midterms in 2010 and 2014 on orders from Wall Street.

6. Enjoy your success while you can, Kaley

Once you turn 40, your career as America's comic sweetheart is over. Just look at Jennifer Anniston.

7. She makes $1m per episode

 

Big Bang makes 24 episodes per year.

By the time she's 40, she'll be too loaded to care.
