Young Laci Green rants: Why I’m a Feminist *gasp*

It’s 4 and a half minites and worth it.

From Wikipedia:  Laci Green is an American YouTube video blogger, public sex educator, and feminist. As a sex educator, she has given lectures at several universities. Green is also one of the hosts of DNews, a YouTube-channel with short science-based shows, launched by the Discovery News-website.

Laci was born in Utah into a Mormon household. Her mother is from an American small town and her father is from Iran. At the age of 2, her family moved to Portland, Oregon. At the age of 12, her family moved to California for her father’s job. As she grew older she began to question the Mormon faith because of the gender roles and expectations of her as a woman. Growing up, Laci was interested in theatre and was supported by her mother who owns a theatre company. Soon after leaving the church, she fell into a state of deep depression and struggled with self-harm and suicidal thoughts. She began to work with a therapist who helped her through her depression. Laci mentions in one video that she graduated from high school at the age of 15.   On January 18, 2013 Laci Green appeared on Dr. Phil (TV series) in an episode titled “Girls Who Bash Girls Who Dress Sexy” where she spoke about how she believes that slut-shaming is wrong and how it is used to degrade a woman’s sexuality.
