My adoration of Lorde grew exponentially with this article, and in particular, this statement:
"She’s a feminist. “Absolutely. Wholeheartedly,” she says. “I think women who say, ‘No, I’m not a feminist — I love men,’ I think that is just… You don’t know what it means. You think it means that, ‘I don’t shave under my arms, I burn my bras. Fuck men!’ How could you be so uneducated, and so unwilling to learn about something which is so important to you?”"
And here's a brilliant piece that Lorde herself wrote. I know, there's been a lot of Lorde around here (and everywhere else) lately. But let's face it, none of us will ever be half as cool as she is.
