Asked whether she considers herself a feminist, the 8 Simple Rules alum replied, “Is it bad if I say no? It's not really something I think about.” She continued: “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.” [...] “I cook for Ryan five nights a week: It makes me feel like a housewife,” she told the mag. “I love that. I know it sounds old-fashioned, but I like the idea of women taking care of their men. I'm so in control of my work that I like coming home and serving him. My mom was like that, so I think it kind of rubbed off.”
She's so in control of her work that she likes coming home and serving her husband. That right there is a boss statement. That is a power statement. That's the remark of a woman who is secure in—and “in control” of—her position. That is a woman who understands what a marriage is and how husbands and wives are to have a servant's heart for each other, to serve each other above themselves. Anyone who doesn't understand that concept, the selflessness which nurtures a happy, healthy relationship, doesn't understand marriage. It is a partnership. The outrage that feminists show towards the idea of serving one's spouse means they view selfless service to be a subtraction from self worth. What a sad way to view caring for others.
