Kylie Jenner Said the F-Word

Many a night I have lain awake in bed, cold sweat gathering at my brow, pondering the most important question of our time as the hours slip away: Is … Kylie Jenner … a feminist?

Finally — finally! — I have an answer. Because it has become de rigueur to ask any female celebrity between the ages of 12 and 99 if she is a feminist in interviews (and then subsequently either tear her down or celebrate her, no matter which way she answers), Jenner was faced with the question.

“I do consider myself a feminist,” the reality-TV star and model told Glamour U.K. in its most recent cover story. “I’m a young woman, for one thing, and I don’t depend on a man or anybody else. I make my own money and start my own businesses, and I feel like I’m an inspiration for a lot of young girls who want to stand on their own.”

Same. Well, except for the whole “starting my own business and serving as an inspiration” part.
