Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham is doing some press right now promoting god knows what and during one interview with the Miami NewTimes, she was asked about whether or not she was a feminist. Abraham's response revealed a rare moment of true vulnerability and enlightenment not usually documented through the mass media.
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.
