Big Bang Theory's Bad Feminist...

I love The Big Bang Theory... seen every episode, own the DVD's, watch the show over and over in syndication. And laugh every time.

Also like its cast-- they are talented, seem likeable and that they like each other, and Jim Parsons had a really graceful coming out that I really admired.

Gotta wonder about his costar Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting now though, according to excerpts from a Redbook interview to be published January 6th.

Keep in mind that this is a 20-something woman who makes a million dollars an episode for a sitcom, and is married to successful professional athlete, so struggle of any sort not likely part of her reality....

When asked if she considers herself a feminist: Is it bad if I say no? It's not really something I think about. Things are different now, and I know a lot of the work that paved the way for women happened before I was around ... I was never that feminist girl demanding equality, but maybe that's because I've never really faced inequality.

Yes it's bad if you say no. You make a million dollars a week, the exact same as your male coworkers. A million dollars a week. How would you feel if you made $770,000 to their million? Besides rich as shit I mean, would you would feel disadvantaged somehow?

Feminism the word has been back in the news lately, as it should be, as pop queens Beyonce and Taylor Swift embrace and promote the label, reminding those who think it is out of date or out of style that it just means equality of pay, opportunity, etc., so why the hell would someone be against it?

The Cuoco magic continues in the same interview... about the boob job she had as a teenager while starring on 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter, the actress calls it "the best decision I ever made." 

Really? In your whole life that is the best decision? Actually that might explain a whole lot...
