Kirsten Dunst Slammed For Supporting Traditional Gender Roles
Actress Kirsten Dunst recently raised the ire of some feminists when she gave her opinion on traditional gender roles.
“I feel like the feminine has been a little undervalued," Dunst told Harper’s Bazaar UK. "We all have to get our own jobs and make our own money, but staying at home, nurturing, being the mother, cooking, it’s a valuable thing my mom created."
"And sometimes, you need your knight in shining armor," added Dunst. "I’m sorry. You need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman. That’s why relationships work.”

Jezebel.com writer Erin Gloria Ryan added, “…Kirsten Dunst is not paid to write gender theory so it shouldn't surprise anyone that she's kind of dumb about it...”
