“I don’t consider myself a feminist, but I’m down for my first opportunity to say something to the world to be so meaningful,” Meghan told Billboard. “If you asked me, ‘What do you want to say?’ it would be, ‘Love yourself more.’”

    So she doesn’t believe in equality of the sexes? Ok then..

  • nemo

    uneducated fool.

    all this continues until she loses that weight…! they all sound very meaningful until they do that

  • Reba

    These celebrities just keep getting dumber. Take two seconds out of your life to learn the REAL definition of feminism.

  • ANON

    A woman who does not believe in gender equality should be not be allowed to speak in a public forum. Someone strap tape over her mouth so we never have to listen to All About That Bass again or hear her horribly ignorant comments.

    or just shut up.

    Well it’s not like we need more uneducated pseudo-feminists in the public anyway. It’s better that people who don’t know anything about feminism don’t claim to be one because it just adds more confusion about what it really is about. Why not give more attention to people who actually have something interesting to say instead of putting idiots up on a pedestal. So I think it’s good that she’s clarifying that she is not automatically a feminist just because she moans about Photoshopped images in one song.

    Since when is feminism about equality of the sexes? It isn’t. First of all, there can never be true equality, and anyone who thinks so – if you’re ever on a sinking ship and they ask for women and children to be evacuated first, let’s see how many “feminists” are on board.

    Courts still routinely award young children to moms instead of dads and “feminists” don’t have a problem with that. “Feminists” want their alimony, but don’t you dare be a man and ask for alimony from your successful “feminist” wife. Feminists only want equality when it is convenient for them and on their terms. Fact.

    Who is she, why is she clueless about feminism and why does she look like Amy Poehler if you squint your eyes?

  • Pretty Ka

    @sillyme: Interesting comment, and you are right about some of it, but that last sentence is not necessarily a FACT. Some of us, feminists or not, trully want equality of sexes, convenient or not.

  • Pretty Ka

    I can’t blame her for saying that she is not a feminist, as I do not know what she understands by feminism. Even on this thread people seem to have different understandings for the term, so perhaps we should not be throwing insults her way…

  • YMI

    noun: feminism
    the advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men.
