'They can't define what a woman is': Sports Illustrated model says feminists are offended she said women should go to the gym

Swimsuit model Kristen Louelle Gaffney said that she angered feminists by saying women should take care of themselves physically, adding that men are receiving undeserved hate despite building the country.

Gaffney, a 2021 Sports Illustrated swimsuit model, says she came under fire for generally apolitical commentary she gave that was related to women exercising.

"Something I did not think was a hot topic, and it's not political, is I said women should take care of themselves physically. I said women should go to the gym. I said women should get their nails done, they should put some effort into their appearance, and it went viral and the comments were crazy," Gaffney told OutKick's Charly Arnolt.

The model also took shots at the political left, saying leftists have a lot of critiques of men yet are unable to concretely define a particular gender.

"The left side has really been pushing down men lately, yet they can't define what a woman is, so that's quite ironic," Gaffney continued. "There's a lot of irony in their agendas," she added.

The San Diego native and wife of former NFL running back Tyler Gaffney previously made headlines when she sported a MAGA purse at the Super Bowl LVIII festivities and praised President Trump.

"Trump embraces the American dream, he protects our children, and he puts our country first," she said according to Fox News. The 32-year-old added that those who have challenged the concept of putting America and its people first should be questioned, rather than Trump.

Noting that she wanted to "make a statement" with her accessory, Gaffney said she received a lot of support, including a lot of high fives from men at the Super Bowl events.

Host Arnolt had her own choice words over the feminism debate, plainly stating that "toxic masculinity is hot."

"The absence of masculinity is the problem; it's not that masculinity exists," she explained.

Arnolt said that she believed it is also a woman's responsibility to continue to take of herself during a relationship.

"I think that one of the roles of being a woman is is looking nice, taking care of yourself, and I think that if you do neglect that and a guy starts losing interest, then that's ultimately — I won't say all but some of — your own fault if you're not going to try to look nice for your man and continue to impress."

Ultimately, the podcaster said that both men and women need to make an effort for one another in a relationship; otherwise they can likely expect their connection to start "falling apart."
