Where are you from? That's complicated. I grew up in Michigan and Oklahoma, but I moved too much to feel like I'm "from" anywhere.
How do you like to spend your time? I spend a lot of time knitting and/or making quilts.
What's your story? I grew up with four brothers. Being the only girl, my mom would always dress me up in lacy dresses and bows. I played with dolls but I also played video games and climbed trees. I wanted to do everything my brothers did. Right before my mom remarried, my grandmother took my brothers and me to get our hair cut. I insisted that I get the same haircut as my brothers. So in my parents' wedding photos we all have bowl cuts. And I really never lost that mentality--that I can do anything my brothers can, even in a dress (although probably not in a dress).
What is feminism? I think feminism is just that innocent young version of me who wanted to be able to do the same things as my brothers without judgment. It's that basic. Wherever you are on the gender spectrum, however you choose to express that gender, that's A-OK. And we'll call that feminism because our dominant culture is misogynistic; it's the pendulum swinging hard in the opposite direction. But, perhaps most importantly, feminism is not just about gender. It's about moving towards a more inclusive and respectful society and dismantling the systems that, actively and disproportionately, negatively affect people of color, people living in poverty, survivors of violence, immigrants, queer and trans folks.
What does "Feminist as Fuck"? It's all that, PLUS the word "fuck," which gives it a little more OOMFH and appeal. It's unapologetic.
What feminist topics are most important to you? Supporting trans and non-binary folks is first and foremost. Also, I am a trained doula and am really passionate about people understanding how their bodies operate, how babies are formed, and supporting people to have the birth experience that they want.
