Anonymous asked: Would you describe yourself as a Feminist? On the one hand you promote women's rights and empowered female characters but on the other you like many of the busty sexualized characters that many feminists hate.
If you’re asking whether or not I support unanimous equality between genders, especially in rights and social/media representations? Yes, of course I support that.
I think you’re making a pretty big assumption that ‘many feminists hate’ the characters I’ve portrayed. Some people may find the outfits objectionable, and blame the artists for their designs, but hating the character could be a wrong assumption. Character blaming is silly, anyhow - blame the creators, if you want to actually make valid complaints.
Every single character I’ve portrayed has been ‘empowered’, by the by - none of them have been restricted/cowered from manifesting their own destiny. Incidentally, that has absolutely nothing to do with bust size, or being sexy. You can be empowered, with a large bust, and have a sexy side while being feminist. Hello, that’s me in everyday life.
I think a large misconception is that feminists are against all things sexy, and that’s simply not true. I know I’m not the only woman who longs for respect while wanting to be admired, and who wants to be proud of her body without crass labeling. Objectification and sexy are not one and the same - you can have one without the other, and vice versa. Granted, it’s a difficult line to see, sometimes, but it really all comes down to one thing: Respect.
That’s what I believe feminism is about. Respect and equality.
tldr; Hell yeah, I’m a feminist.
