On breasts:
It really bothers me that people are so offended by breasts. That’s when I realized how fucked our culture is. When we see breasts, we don’t think of beauty and femininity. We think of vulgar, oversexualized images.

On her activism work:
I want girls to see that you can be whatever you want. Be as specific as you want. You can like this thing and that thing, and you don’t have to feel like the world won’t understand you.

On who can talk about issues:
I don’t like the idea that people have to have a license to talk about issues. But I’m not sure how I would feel about a male painting a rape, you know what I mean? It’s a weird, tricky thing.

On how she looks at things:
My father taught me how to see. We don’t really look at things. Especially now with the Internet and our phones. To look at something and take it in and really understand...it’s a huge gift.
