Aziz Ansari is a Feminist

Oh, I’m sorry, did you think you could not possibly love Aziz Ansari any more? Did you?? THEN YOU ARE A FOOL. Enjoy his bit on Letterman about how he’s a feminist and everyone else should be, too.

“If you believe that men and women have equal rights, if someone asks if you’re a feminist, you have to say yes, because that’s how words work. Like, you can’t be like ‘Oh yeah I’m a doctor who primarily does diseases of the skin.’ ‘Oh so you’re a dermatologist?’ ‘Oh no, that’s way too aggressive a word.'”

  1. His feminism commentary was great. I also loved his take as his parents immigrating to South Carolina, the perfect Venn diagram of racism and bad public schools. Ha! My parents were also immigrants from India, but the Venn diagram into which I was born was somewhat more desirable. He’d spend his $20 on fresh pressed juice!! Ha. I’mma go thank my parents now.
