Kirsten Dunst Stirs Up Controversy With Her Comments On Gender Roles

Dunst-Bazaar1

(PCM) The always gorgeous Kirsten Dunst is gracing the cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK, however as lovely as she appears on the cover, it is her comments made in the accompanying article that has people up in arms.

When talking about her opinion on traditional gender roles the 31-year old actress commented “I feel like the feminine has been a little undervalued”.  She went on to say ”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. Sometimes you need your knight in shining armor.”

To many pro-feminists those words were enough to spark an outrage, however Dunst then followed up with “You need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman. That’s why relationships work”.  Now it is an all out war of words against Dunst on many pro-feminist online blogs such as Jezebel and Uproxx who have taken to slamming the actress’s viewpoints and opinions.

It seems that nowadays someone is always going to be offended no matter viewpoint or opinion that someone, especially a celebrity, happens to vocalize. While we may or may not agree with Dunst’s recent comments, everyone is certainly entitled to their own opinion and we certainly need to practice more tolerance before skewering someone for a belief that may be different from our own.

The McDonald’s Versus Taco Bell Breakfast War

taco-Bell1

(PCM) It has now become an all out viral war on social media between both McDonald’s and Taco Bell, after Taco Bell launched their new breakfast menu last week.

McDonald’s attacked first, when starting on Monday morning, they will be offering customers a free small cup of McCafe coffee at all participating U.S. locations during breakfast hours. The attack was in response to a Taco Bell advertisement that featured twenty or so real men actually named Ronald McDonald giving their praises for the new Taco Bell breakfast items.

McDonald’s also tweeted out a picture of a man dressed as Ronald McDonald crouching down to pet a Chihuahua with the words “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.”  And to the Ronald McDonald commercial McDonald’s scornfully replied “Breaking! Mayor McCheese confirms: Ronald, in fact, still prefers McDonald’s.” Burn!

 

It is not very often that McDonald’s offers up freebies, so that is why the free coffee event came as a bit of surprise. It seems they are getting pretty desperate to squash out any new breakfast food competitors. McDonald’s has long since ruled the fast-food breakfast industry, however sales were slipping a bit this year, most due to the unusually harsh winter conditions suffered by most of the country this year.

McDonald’s offers up consumers more traditional breakfast fare, while Taco Bells new breakfast menu features a Waffle Taco (warm waffle wrapped around sausage patty or bacon with eggs, cheese and syrup); A.M. Crunchwrap (scrambled eggs, hash browns, cheese and bacon or sausage in a flour tortilla);  and Cinnabon Delights (poppable Cinnabon treats).

All is not lost for McDonald’s, however!  They do still have one super fan. An 18-year old from Norway now has a McDonald’s receipt tattooed on his forearm. The young man claims that his friends wanted to punish him for being “too active with the ladies’…whatever that means. Now McDonald’s is a permanent part of his and he becomes the company’s newest walking advertisement. He had either the option of a Barbie tattoo on his rear end or the McDonald’s receipt on his arm…I think we would have chosen the receipt too!

Alec Baldwin Vows To Leave New York City

Alec-Baldwin1(PCM) It seems that there has always been an ongoing battle between actor Alec Baldwin and the media. The “30 Rock” actor has definitely had quite a few unpleasant run-ins with the tabloid media in NYC over the past year and has been portrayed as both a homophobe and a bigot in the news.

Baldwin claims that the tabloid media is “forcing him” to move out of NYC and he says “I just can’t live here anymore”. Over the course of the last year, Baldwin has been accused of using a racial slur on a New York Post photographer, a homophobic slur against a British reporter on Twitter and a slew of other angry outbursts aimed at the press who seem to consistently hound the actor looking for some sort of reaction.

Baldwin also went on the attack of openly gay journalists who criticized his behavior calling both Andrew Sullivan and CNN anchor Anderson Cooper the “gay department of justice”.

Baldwin leaving NYC is the featured cover story for New York Magazine and in the article he claims “I haven’t changed..but the public life has…if you make a mistake it echoes in the digital canyon forever”.  Baldwin says he’s “given up” especially after he was “fired” from his late-night talk show on TV’s MSNBC “out of nowhere”.

Baldwin claims that 2013 was a great year for him because he and his wife welcomed the birth of a new child, however all the other stuff that went on was “pretty awful”.

Should the media be blamed for forcing Alec Baldwin out of NYC? or Is he just being a whiner about the whole situation?
