Shailene Woodley Says There Are More Important Things To Talk About Than What She Thinks About Feminism
About a year ago, TIME magazine asked spiritual millionaire Shailene Woodley if she considered herself a feminist, to which she answered with a long-winded thing about sisterhood and loving men and something something basically she said no. Shailene later confessed that she took a bit of shit for it and sort of Bye Felicia‘d all over the haters.
Obviously Shailene was done with that mess, but I guess Nylon didn’t get that memo, because during a recent interview with the backseat mistake baby of Kristen Stewart and The Lorax, they asked her to explain exactly why she told TIME that she doesn’t identify as a feminism. And not shockingly, Shailene wasn’t into it:
“The reason why I don’t like to say that I am a feminist or I am not a feminist is because to me it’s still a label. I do not want to be defined by one thing. Why do we have to have that label to divide us? We should all be able to embrace one another regardless of our belief system and regardless of the labels that we have put upon ourselves. I mean, if we spent as much energy focusing on the genocide that’s going on right now in parts of Africa as we spent on that one article, think about what we could accomplish.”
Shailene’s response sounds like the one I usually receive whenever I talk about how deeply upset I am that Skittles decided to change the green one from lime to green apple, and it’s usually accompanied by a Bitch, are you seriously complaining about candy? stank face.
But when will these tricks learn that trolling Shailene Woodley for her thoughts about feminism is getting sort of boring? Duh, of course she’s going to use 120 words to say she’s not into it. Instead, they should be trolling her for more stoner-sounding vaguely holistic hippie shit, like the benefits of drinking bone water. Can you even imagine the gold mine you’d hit if you opened an interview with “So Shailene, I’ve heard moonlight can cure a UTI…thoughts?”
And in case you were looking at that Nylon cover and wondering when Shailene Woodley turned into the greasy IT guy from your office, here she is looking more like herself at the New York premiere of Divergent: Insurgent on Monday night:
