Where are you from?
Originally from Michigan, adopted Chicagoan
How do you like to spend your time?
I like to spend my time when I am not working with the ones I love whether it be at home with beau or out with my chosen family.
What is your story?
I don’t think I have that crazy of a story but I was raised by hard working jokesters and always commanded the center of attention. I took that need and rode it through art school, with a concentration in performance, into the real world. I’ve been making jokes most of the way since.
What is Feminism to you?
Feminism is the deserved respect and equality that women shouldn’t have to ask for anymore.
What does “Feminist as Fuck” mean?
Feminist as Fuck is about all the bad bitches who aren’t afraid to stir the pot to make their voices heard. It’s about being able to speak your mind and not worrying about the “ladies” (Val) that don’t approve. Crushing stereotypes about who or what a feminist is. There is a feminist in all of us, and we are not afraid to fucking talk about it…in a respectful and fashionable way.
What Feminist topics are most important to you?
I’m not sure how to answer this question but I guess I would have to say the thing that is the most upsetting to me is thinking about women’s rights in the middle east and Asia. It’s such a deep rooted issue because of the religions that are so engrained in the culture and expectations of women. It just seems like such an unbelievable thing that is happening in our current society. When you live in a place like the United States it is hard to imagine it, but it is too real and super fucked up.
