Salma Hayek Doesn’t Know What the Word ‘Feminist’ Means

On Monday, in Beverly Hills, Salma Hayek was honored by the women’s rights organization Equality Now for her dedication to gender equality. On the red carpet, before receiving the award, the Oscar-nominated actress felt the need to clarify her stance on feminism.

She told People Magazine, “I am not a feminist. If men were going through the things women are going through today, I would be fighting for them with just as much passion. I believe in equality.” Seriously Salma?

Sounds like someone skipped the first day of her Women’s Studies class. That is LITERALLY the definition of feminism.

At the most basic level, a feminist is a person who believes that men and women are equal and deserve equal rights. So, if you are not a feminist then you are, most certainly, an asshole.

Can the celebrities stop it with their “I’m not a feminist” nonsense already? When did it become cool to be against BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS?!?
