30 Sex-Ed Lessons I Had to Learn from Big Mouth
Feminism Should Be Inclusive
It’s truly shocking how many people forget that feminism needs to be intersectional and inclusive. This extends to all female-identifying gender identities (and non-female gender identities, because feminism is about equality for all) and all ethnicities, but as Big Mouth‘s sex-ed makes clear during its third season sl*t walk, inclusivity also means welcoming women whose protest looks different than yours. Missy is a feminist, but she isn’t comfortable dressing provocatively to make a point. Pressuring her into behaviors that make her uncomfortable isn’t inclusive, especially when she’s still trying to show her solidarity in other ways. We’re fighting for women’s right to choose how they dress, even if they want to dress like Minions.
