Now, let me be clear. Of course Cuoco-Sweeting could be a feminist if she wanted. Her character on the hit TV show is also welcome to the pack (although her fictional status makes the practicality of this challenging) with her liberal views on women's sexuality and lack of shame over her sex life she shares plenty of feminist opinions. But it seems strange how feminism appears to think it can say 'we want you - we don't want you' when the main message of the movement is that there is space for us all, female, queer, male etc.
Also while of course we want more women to be involved in feminism (just not you. Or you) we cannot shame those who announce they are not.
we simply aren't being clear enough about the continued struggle
Since the publication of the interview Cuoco-Sweeting has said her comments were taken out of context, though it seems unlikely as she has not said she is a feminist after all. It seems sad we are forcing a woman to apologise for a stance we disagree with particularly as it means nothing. We're just joining the march to make women constantly apologetic and unsure.
Considering Cuoco-Sweeting followed that statement with: "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." demonstrates that we simply aren't being clear enough about the continued struggle and that it is everyone's struggle whether or not you encounter sexism, if the person next to you is then you have to fight it and the reason you might feel you don't have a fight is feminism.
