I have a serious question.
Has Sarah Jessica Parker ever listened to Beyoncé's song "Flawless," specifically the part where she samples Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche's TED talk in which Adiche recites the definition of feminism? You know, the sample that taught the modern common woman that feminism does not mean "burning bras in protest" and "hating men" and all those other clichés?
APPARENTLY NOT, because Sarah Jessica Parker is out here talking about how she doesn't think she "qualifies" as feminist in the year 2016. Go back from whence you came boo, and think about what you just said.
In a seriously confusing new interview with Marie Claire, Sarah Jessica Parker explains why she does not consider herself a feminist:
Parker told the magazine. HMMMM. THIS is curious!
"I am not a feminist. I don't think I qualify. I believe in women and I believe in equality, but I think there is so much that needs to be done that I don't even want to separate it anymore. I'm so tired of separation. I just want people to be treated equally."
Let us back up for one second here and revisit what being a "feminist" means by taking a look at Adiche's definition!
*Many thinking face emojis as I try to figure out how this definition does not include Parker or why it makes her unqualified to be a feminist*
Let's consult Dictionary.com just to make sure Adiche's definition is accurate:
Okay, clear as day.
Parker went on to praise the work that self-proclaimed feminists Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Watson have done for the movement she claims not to be a part of:
Listen, Jennifer Lawrence deserves every bit as much as her male counterpart. It's indisputable. Emma Watson is an amazing young woman, and it's important for her to talk about women's issues. She isn't concerned about herself. Women are paying the bills, getting it done, getting the kids here and there. The more we address that, we are all going to be better..
SJP, I hate to break it to you, but you're a feminist!
