tbh the latest trend of asking female celebrities if theyre feminist seems less about advancing liberation and more about the media attempting to turn women against eachother
Yeah, there’s not a good answer for them, especially when they’re young. No matter what she says, some section of fans/media/the general public is going to give her shit. I can see why it seems easiest to just say “I love all people!” or something meaningless like that
To me, the very definition of a new kind of “gotcha” journalism. If you ask any question with the assumption there is one right answer—and a lot of wrong ones—you are doing a shitty job of being a conversationalist and especially a shitty job of being a journalist.
Also if we’re going to sink to this super essentializing of a really complex social issue, we should at least be asking every male celebrity the same. (Oh wait, that’s probably more of that feminism thing.)
