Pamela Anderson takes on #MeToo radicals, modern feminism: ‘I think it paralyzes men’

November 5, 2018

Former “Baywatch” star Pamela Anderson says modern feminism is a “bore” that culturally “goes too far.”

The animal rights activist joked with “60 Minutes Australia” this weekend that she’ll probably get “killed” by radical feminists for her willingness to criticize elements of the #MeToo movement.

“My mother taught me don’t go to a hotel with a stranger,” she told journalist Liam Bartlett in reference to Hollywood’s Harvey Weinstein scandal. “If someone opens the door in a bathrobe and it’s supposed to be a business meeting, maybe I should go with somebody else. I think some things are just common sense. Or, if you go in get the job.”

Ms. Anderson then laughed and said that perhaps her Canadian roots allow her to speak her mind more freely than others.

“I think this feminism can go too far. I’m a feminist, but I think that this third wave of feminism is a bore. I think it paralyzes men, I think this #MeToo movement is a bit too much for me. I’m sorry, I’ll probably get killed for saying that. ... I’m sorry, I’m not politically correct.”
