Amber Rose Doesn't Care About Being Ridiculed for Being a Feminist
“Let me take the punches, but in return, help me. That’s all I ask. Fight with me!”
Don’t ever expect Amber Rose to hold back her opinion — or care what you think about hers, for that matter. The new face of Flirt Cosmetics dropped by Refinery29 and spoke unabashedly about being a feminist, raising her three-year-old son to be one as well as sex positivity.
Asked why some women aren’t down with claiming feminism, she remarked:
“For years and years and years, society taught them to be a certain way, and being a feminist kind of goes against that, and they’re scared of it. They don’t want to be judged and ridiculed… They’re afraid of what their partner will think. For me, I just don’t give a shit. I mean, you know, I take all the punches, I really do, I take all the criticism, all the punches, but I do it for all of us. Let me take the punches, but in return, help me. That’s all I ask. Fight with me!”
