Reasons That Asa Akira Is a Feminist Icon
I assure you, I am qualified to write this.
- •This Insta post, which is simultaneously very funny, extremely subversive, and unapologetically feminist.
- •Not only is her asshole AWARD-WINNING, she also has no time for body shame and isn't afraid to let you know.
- •She has strong relationships with women. Her friendship with Dana DeArmond is way more #squadgoals than Taylor & whoever, and she supports her colleagues.
- •She is not scared to normalize stuff that less-enlightened women hide because boys might not like it. For this see her posts on periods, collagen, and female sexuality.
- •She is honest about what her daily life entails and any body-modification she has done because fuck shamers, we're all on this spaceship earth together.
- •She's hilarious.
- •She loves, cares for, and honors her body. She also has a damn good time with it.
- •She is acutely aware of her uniquely intersectional position as an Asian-American woman feminist adult entertainer, and she doesn't back down from any of those intersecting identities.
- •She normalizes female sexuality. THANK THE GOOD LORD GOD FINALLY SOMEONE IS DOING THIS.
- •Did I mention she's funny?
