Dolly Parton on Feminism: ‘I Don’t Need to Carry a Sign to Say I’m a Woman’

Dolly Parton has many things for her fans, but one thing she is not political about. That’s deliberate because Parton doesn’t want to impose his political beliefs on anyone. Even though she’s a great example of a woman doing it on her own, she doesn’t want to be a poster child for feminism anymore.

Politics will not stop Dolly Parton from loving everyone

Before she even gets into politics, Parton wants to make it clear that she loves everyone no matter what their beliefs. So she puts her faith above any politics she may have.

First, I have a big old open heart. I love everyone and strive to be good to everyone. I know that we are all children of God, I know that we have a right to help and to love one another. I am not that political and I try to be more open to humanity and Christianity. Those of us who are of the Christian faith, not caring about people are going against everything we are supposed to be. I think I have a big family because I accept everyone, I want to be accepted [and] I don’t judge people. We have no right to judge. That is the work of God. “

“I try to live by an example, I try to be an example,” Parton said. “I try to be like those things that people think I should say more about. I let God guide me. I have my own center and I have a place of my own. I know who I am and I know what I can and cannot do, what I should and should not do, what I should and should not do. I will not allow others to do what I should and should not do. “

“It hurts my feelings sometimes when things go against me like that,” Parton said. “But, if people are going to crucify me for caring about loved ones and people, everyone, I don’t care if you’re gay, I don’t care if you’re just, no I care if you are an alien black, white, yellow, blue or gray. I love U. ”
