Fuck Yeah Miss Piggy Dot Tumblr Dot Com
Brooklyn’s Sackler Center for Feminist Art just gave Miss Piggy a deeply revered feminist award because she’s the baddest muppet alive and don’t you dare question it.
In an interview with Time, Missy Piggy, described herself as a longtime “ardent feminist and champion of women’s rights. “I believe that any woman who refuses to accept society’s preconceived notions of who or what they can be is a feminist,” she said. “I believe any woman who is willing to struggle, strive—and if necessary learn karate—to make their mark in the world is a feminist. And, yes, I believe that any woman, who cares about her appearance, her star billing and most especially her percentage of the gross, is a feminist. Moi is all of these things.”
