Upworthy Meets World: A Q&A With Jessica Valenti
UMM Y’ALL. JESSICA VALENTI SAID MY TUMBLR IS A MUST READ. I CAN’T BELIEVE IT. DYING INSIDE.
Upworthy Meets World is back! In case you missed the first installment, this here is our weekly feature focusing on Internet superheroes doing interesting, awesome work with the help of social media. This week, we caught up with Jessica Valenti and asked her about the important things in life: vaginas (and Internet activism). If you’re not sure who she is, stop reading this right now and go read “Full Frontal Feminism” instead. It’s fine! We’ll wait for you!
Here she is, demonstrating how we all feel about current attempts at legislation on women’s bodies (and also reacting to the guy who invented purity balls telling her that purity balls aren’t about virginity):
It’s a great article (her suggested responses to when a friend/relative makes a bigoted joke are excellent), but I’m still having trouble with Jessica Valenti due to her continued (and inexplicable) praise of Irin Carmon.
