Rowan Blanchard Learned About Intersectional Feminism on Tumblr

Rowan Blanchard is a big fan of Tumblr.

In fact, the 15-year-old Girl Meets World star learned about intersectional feminism and other important concepts on the microblogging and social networking site.

“I’ve been commenting on things on Tumblr, and re-blogging things, and learning a lot about feminism through Tumblr,” Rowan said. “People discredit it as a source of really vital, important information. I heard the term ‘white feminism’ making headlines and I’m like what does that mean? Somebody outright asked me on Tumblr, ‘Rowan, what are your thoughts on white feminism?’ And at this time I really didn’t really fully understand what that meant. So I looked up white feminism, and what is intersectional feminism. And then that led to that, to Audre Lorde, and people who I wouldn’t have been led to in this very white aestheticized version of feminism.”

Rowan also said, “With this culture on Twitter that has come along with ‘I’m gonna educate you’ has also come along with ‘You’re not doing it exactly how I want you to do it.’ And then there’s that whole thing of ‘You’re my problematic fav,’ ‘You’re so problematic.’ And I’m like yeah, everybody’s problematic, because everybody’s just learning here.”

In case you missed it, she also opened up about being compared to other Disney starlets.
