Recently on Australia’s 60 Minutes, one of the stars of the popular TV series Baywatch takes a stand against the #MeToo movement.

Baywatch beauty Pamela Anderson is speaking out as NOT being a supporter of the #MeToo movement. In the interview the former Playboy model slammed #MeToo, claiming it has gone “too far.”

I think this feminism can go too far,” Anderson said. “I’m a feminist, but I think that this third wave of feminism is a bore.” She added, “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.”

Anderson said she has had her own issues and experiences with different types of sexual abuse and even went so far as to say she was sexually molested herself, by a female babysitter and even suffered through non-consensual experiences with men early on in her life.

Even still, she has a different take than many women (and even some men) on this particular issue, saying she feels a lot of these issues are just common sense things. Like situations you should not put yourself into in the first place, making a clear reference to the Harvey Weinstein case, saying if you go to a hotel room for a business meeting, and the man opens the door in a bathrobe, perhaps you shouldn’t go in.

Anderson says she is not concerned with being “politically correct” , she’d rather speak her own mind, “I’m Canadian, I’m going to speak my mind”!

So how will this public denouncing of this issue in our society today effect Ms. Anderson? I guess its too soon to tell. It does seem like her no nonsense view on the movement leads me to wonder how many other women out there just might agree with Pamela Anderson. Are there more women feeling this way but are just too afraid to come out and speak their mind about #MeToo? Its certainly food for thought.
