Azis Ansari is a talented writer, comedian, actor and apparently proud feminist. In a recent interview with David Letterman, he spoke about his understanding of what it means to be a feminist and why he thinks it’s important to talk about gender issues, including in comedy. Much of his understanding of feminism he attributes to his girlfriend, saying, “my girlfriend makes me think about those things. She’s a big feminist and I am too”. Go, Azis!
He also goes on to make some pretty hilarious comments about equality between Beyonce and Jay Z. Check out the interview clip here:
This makes us love Azis even more, and brings up a very important rule. If you’re going to shack up with a significant other, please make it someone who respects you as an equal.
