Actress Evangeline Lilly: "Why is femininity villainized in women, but celebrated in men? Why is masculinity villainized in men, but celebrated in women?"

Actress Evangeline Lilly asks some questions.

Canadian actress Evangeline Lilly is best known for her roles in the television series Lost and in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the Wasp.

And Tauriel in The Hobbit movies, which weren't her fault.

She is also a writer and a philanthropist, having worked with various charitable organizations over the years. In 2020, during the coronavirus pandemic, Evangeline expressed her controversial opinion on social media about not wanting to self-isolate or adhere to social distancing guidelines, as she felt it was too restrictive. This caused a backlash from fans and the public, who criticized her for being selfish and not taking the pandemic seriously.

Later that year, she also sparked controversy by publicly expressing her reluctance to take the Covid vaccine, citing concerns about its safety and effectiveness. In a social media post, she stated that she believed in "freedom of choice" and that "some people value their bodily autonomy over being told what to do." Her comments received further backlash from fans and the public, who accused her of spreading misinformation and promoting "anti-vaxxer" beliefs. Some even called for her to be removed from future Marvel films.


Evangeline recently posted a thought-provoking message on Instagram about femininity and masculinity. The post questioned why society applauds masculinity in women but villainizes it in men, and why femininity is celebrated in men but debased in women. She didn't reference any particular incident, but it's no secret that we live in a culture that rewards men for wearing girly dresses while encouraging women to act like men and prioritize being a boss babe at the office rather than starting a family.

"Why are we only applauding masculinity in women and villainizing it in men? And why are we only applauding femininity in men and debasing it in women? Why can't we just allow for all of it?" Evangeline writes in the caption of her photo. "Why do we feel the need to vilify a man wearing shit-kicker boots, driving a pick-up truck who's not afraid to punch someone in the face, but if they were a woman, they would be the epitome of cool? Why is a man who loves make-up, cries easily and stays at home to tend to the domestic responsibilities valiant, but a woman who does the same is pathetic?"

She argued that grace and charity should be taught above all else, as they are cornerstones of a thriving society. Lilly suggested that we should focus on these overarching ideas instead of trying to juggle the minutia of judgment.

At Twitchy, a formerly leftwing actress describes her journey back to reason.
