Rather than boring you with a lengthy artist statement, my interests, or my politics, you can peruse the links below. I have always been a total nerdy fangirl. With so much ugly in the world – especially online – and considering that the noun ‘fangirl’ is generally employed in a derisive manner – to marginalize women, I believe fangirling should be reclaimed, embraced, and promoted by intersectional feminists. Mocking fangirls perpetuates sexist notions (e.g. women’s interests are insignificant and their enthusiasm is misdirected, impulsive, and ill-considered). Reducing ‘fangirling’ to a young woman’s trivial and ridiculous excitement is ageist and downright misogynistic. Because I long for fangirling to be liberated from the clutches of heteropatriarchal discourse, because I have no time for anything but admiration/love, and because I am too school for cool, this page.
