“You need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman.”

Kirsten Dunst speaks the unspeakable in US Weekly.

Feminists are chanting “Off with her head!” after Marie Antoinette star Kirsten Dunst’s latest comments on gender roles were revealed in the May issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK. The 31-year-old cover girl has a more traditional view when it comes to relationships between men and women.

I feel like the feminine has been a little undervalued,” she told the magazine. “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.”

The Midnight Special star, who has been dating actor Garrett Hedlund since the Sundance Film Festival in January 2012, argues that finding a manly man is necessary.

“And sometimes, you need your knight in shining armor,” continued Dunst. “I’m sorry. You need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman. That’s how relationships work.”

Naturally, her comments have stirred up controversy on the Internet. Sites like Jezebel and Uproxx have bashed Dunst’s comments. “Kirsten Dunst is not paid to write gender theory, so it shouldn’t surprise anyone that she’s kind of dumb about it,” Jezebel writer Erin Gloria Ryan wrote.

    How I hope she is able to hold her own against the onslaught of illiberal feminism! I imagine she understood the risk when she made these trailblazing remarks, and am so proud of her for displaying a courage so few public-figure women feel able to show.

    Well, Erin *is* paid to write about gender theory, and she’s dumb at it, too.

    I bet if Kirsten Dunst was saying things in favor of women being less than feminine, the same “wymyn” taking her to the woodshed would say “Tell it like it is”!
