If you met me with no makeup, in my sweatpants, with my short haircut, you might be like, ‘Aw, this girl is very clearly a caricature and archetype of the modern feminist.’ If you met me in a dress with my push-up bra and full face of makeup, you’d have another mockery to make of me. To me, the root of feminism, which often gets misinterpreted and miscommunicated, is about letting women do whatever the fuck they want to do. If that means buying makeup, it means buying makeup. If that means getting plastic surgery, it means getting plastic surgery. The point is to let me make those decisions. Let me decide if I want to be one or the other.

These kids show up to my show all the time, with cool
hair, dressing however they want, you know, girls are not worried about

I’m just like, ‘Don’t figure me out then.
It’s none of your business.’ It goes back to that fear; people saying,
‘I can’t put you in a category and I don’t like it’. Well, you’re not
entitled to a dated and detailed history of the women I’ve fucked.
You
wouldn’t ask a heterosexual woman artist for a list to prove that
they’ve slept with men, so why are you asking for evidence that I’ve
been with women?
