Kim Cattrall Doesn’t Want You To Call Her a Cougar

Kim Cattrall Hates Being Called a Cougar

You would think that after all these years of her most famous character being labeled a cougar that Kim Cattrall would have learned to embrace the term. Instead Kim’s speaking out against how hurtful and anti-woman she finds the expression to be:

I really take umbrage to the code ‘cougar.’ I think cougar has a negative connotation, and I don’t see anything negative about Samantha [her ‘SATC’ character] and her sexuality, sensuality and choice.”

I don’t think she stands or sits in bars waiting for young men to prey on… And I think that’s something that people who are uncomfortable with strong women have labeled her.

Personally, I’m less offended than I am grossed out by the term, so maybe Kim has a point. Whenever I think of a cougar, I immediately think of Stiffler’s mom blowing one of my friends in a bar bathroom or something. Yeahhhh… Maybe we should quit that word.
