Farrah Abraham Is The Hero Feminism Deserves, Not The One It Needs Right Now

The Superficial / September 4, 2013

Back in May, Jezebel decided to go after Chrissy Teigen for calling Farrah Abraham a “slut” because it’d be totes post-modern cool to pretend Farrah is a regular Rosie Riveter making porn look like an expression of feminine freedom and not the entirely opportunistic cash grab she’s still lying about it not being. Which makes it all the more hilarious that Jezebel has finally jumped on the bandwagon called that Farrah is an idiot because here they are pointing out she has no fucking clue what the word feminist even means after claiming her full-fledged, undeniable porno was a sex tape with her “boyfriend” who leaked it behind her back, so she had no choice but to sell it because that’s entirely how that process works:

After some discussion of her recent work, interviewer Allie Conti asked Abraham about how her “sex tape came about.” Abraham responded by saying that it happened because of “how I live my life.” Explaining that she’s “22” “very sexual” and “single”, Abraham continued to assert that she made the tape with then-boyfriend James Deen, who leaked it, forcing her to sell it to Vivid, despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary that any of that is true.
Then Conti remarks that it’s “pretty shitty” that Deen released the tape, using that remark as a segue into asking Abraham if she considers herself a feminist. That’s the point at which the following exchange occurred:
 
Do you consider yourself a feminist?
I’m pretty feminine. I think so.
 
Not feminine — feminist.
What does that mean, you’re a lesbian or something?
 
No, that’s not what I’m asking at all.
What context are you saying it in?
 
It’s a complicated concept, but I guess at it’s most basic, it means that women are equal to men.
Oh, I definitely feel that women are equal to men. No doubt about that. I mean women should have equal rights to men, every day.

“What does that mean, you’re a lesbian or something?” Holy shit, do you people owe Chrissy Teigen an apology. And without being bitchy about it! (I’m kidding. We both know that’s not gonna happen.)
