‘Common sense’

Pamela Anderson unleashes some choice words for #MeToo movement, feminism in general

By WITW Staff on November 6, 2018

Pamela Anderson spoke out against the #MeToo movement and joked about victims of Harvey Weinstein during a Sunday interview with 60 Minutes Australia, doubling down on prior assertions that women need to use “common sense” to avoid sexual harassment and assault.

“My mother taught me don’t go to into a hotel with a stranger, and if someone answers the door in a bathrobe and it’s supposed to be a business meeting, maybe I should go with somebody else,” said Anderson when asked about Weinstein’s alleged victims.

“I think that some things are just common sense. Or, if you go in, get the job,” she added, laughing. “I’m Canadian I’m going to speak my mind, OK? I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m not politically correct, maybe.”

In the interview, Anderson also attacked the #MeToo movement, which she said “paralyzes men” from approaching women sexually.

“I think this feminism can go too far,” she said. “I’m a feminist but I think that this third wave feminism is a bore … this #MeToo movement is a bit too much for me. I’m sorry, I’ll probably get killed for saying that.” Ah, ya think?
