I wish I was more knowledgable about "The Simpsons." Growing up, my brother and I most often found ourselves watching PBS Kids, so by the time we aged out of "Arthur," it was too late to catch up on the older programming some of my friends had been watching for years. But now as an Actual Adult, I can confirm with certainty that Lisa Simpson is a bona fide ICON. It took a little bit for me to get here, but here I am, loud and proud.
Her famous quote about her interests — including "music, science, justice, animals, shapes, feelings" — is especially pertinent:
Lisa, at eight, is a tiny yellow feminist icon. She can advocate for environmentalism, social justice and animal rights, and still be a little bit sensitive. We contain multitudes, etc., and Lisa's championing of female empowerment is very much needed as we begin 2017. Obviously.
It should serve as no surprise that The Wing, the all-female social space probably blowing up your Instagram feed, utilized Lisa's much-quoted interest list for one of its merch T-shirts. On a surface level, I wear white T-shirts all the time, so I'm always on the hunt for new versions — especially those with a pointedly feminist Lisa quote.
The Wing My Interests Include T-Shirt, $40, available at The Wing.
