Emma Watson isn’t just an actress. She’s also a feminist, activist, and UN Women Goodwill Ambassador. Bow down,
bitches sisters! In early March, Emma interviewed political science professor and Sex and World Peace author, Valerie Hudson. Teen Vogue just published a condensed version of that conversation.
The two discussed feminism, labor issues, #MeToo, and forced child marriages in Malawi. They also talked about sexy shit, and while discussing gender roles in relationships, Emma praised same-sex relationships, and also let us know that she may be liking rope bondage tweets Armie Hammer-style.
via Teen Vogue:
A lot of the healthiest relationships I’ve seen have been between same-sex couples because, I think, they have to sit down and agree [on] things. They agree [on] things between them as opposed to [accepting] certain sets of assumptions and expectations that are made. I’ve also kind of become slightly fascinated by kink culture because they are the best communicators ever. They know all about consent. They [smash that stuff because they really have to get it — but we could all use those models; they’re actually really helpful models.
Listen, everything Emma Watson learned about kink she probably got from Fifty Shades. But it’s no surprise that Hermione is into that shit. You have to be slightly kinky if you agree to play Belle in Beauty and the Beast. That romance is based on Stockholm Syndrome, and Belle has no choice but to submit to that rough ol’ dom Beast. And Emma’s acting chops in that film were on par with porn acting (no offense to porn actors).
I did an interview with Vogue magazine a couple of months ago, and I talked about how, in the run-up to my 30s, [I felt] this incredible, sudden anxiety and pressure that I had to be married or have a baby or [be] moving into a house. And there was no word for this kind of subliminal messaging and anxiety and pressure that I felt building up but couldn’t really name, so I used the word self-partnered. For me it wasn’t so much about coining a word; it was more that I needed to create a definition for something that I didn’t feel there was language for.
What we really need is a term for being single during corona-times. My love life is just me texting a harem of dudes I met on the apps. I’ll likely never meet any of these dummies, but what if one of them is “the one”, and we have an exciting life or death “how we met” story? What would you call that, Emma? “Delusion-sexting?” “Self-desperate?” “Help-me-please-this-is-a-horny-cry-for-help?”
