My full-length interview with Chally, who talks about her love of sci-fi, why it's problematic to have feminist "icons," her experience as a teen in social justice movement, and of course, the internet! (The post title is tongue-in-cheek, by the way, she's anything but, as you'll see.)!
Transcript (PDF) Thanks Sara and John
Chally has some great blog recommendations from teen and other young bloggers:
- Hell on Hairylegs "My absolute favorite. She writes such fantastic, sarcastic, gorgeous takedowns of anything and everything, and her blog is a real pleasure to read."
- Dorianisms "A male teenage feminist who's pretty fabulous."
- Adventures of the TV Addict "A college-age blogger and she's so bitingly clever."
- Jessica Yee "She's so great, the work she does around indigenous work in sexual health for young people." (Read Jessica Yee at Bitch)
- Karen Healy "She's doing a PhD on girls in comics, I think, which is pretty great, but she wrote one of my favorite poems of all time, which is called 'More About Them'."
- Cripchick "Both an Internet feminist and an offline feminist—and a disability activist, should I say—she does a lot of great intersectional work around disability activism."
- Anna "She works so hard in promoting particularly young disabled people. I think she's fabulous." (Read Anna at Bitch.)
- Beppie on Hoyden About Town "I've just found her work really great in developing my own feminist ideas."
