Farrah Abraham on feminism: ‘does that mean you’re a lesbian?’

It’s no surprise that Farrah Abraham, the 22 year-old former “Teen Mom” turned porn star, is dumb as a box of rocks. What’s surprising to me is how her stupidity manifests itself. In a recent interview, she confused feminism with “femininity,” and when the journalist attempted to correct her, she asked if feminist was another term for “lesbian.” Farrah of course said many other stupid things in this interview. She also continued to insist that her professional porn debut was some kind of leaked sex tape with a boyfriend. The thing is, she’s already admitted that she hired Deen for the video, and Deen has also complained that he got hired for the scheme and regrets it. (Particularly after Farrah faked a pregnancy scare for publicity.)

I’ve heard you speak on how your sex tape came about, and I don’t understand the narrative. Can you expand on it?
Basically, how my sex tape came about is how I live my life. I’m 22, I’m very sexual, I’m single. A boyfriend of mine at the time, which was James [Deen], is in the industry and makes videos all the time, and so I thought it was a comfortable situation to have my only sex video with him. Proved me wrong, obviously, because it was leaking out, and I was starting to have people reach out to me. Maybe he did that because he wanted to promote his film at the time, The Canyons, which was coming out with Lindsay Lohan. So it turned into a hurtful chain of events, so I involved my lawyer. Other companies were reaching out and wanted to buy it, so I ended up selling it. And against all odds of everybody else telling me not to sell it, not to do it or whatever — it was already out, it was already going to be out there for free. So I made a business deal out of it. I’m smart, and I’m happy that I did that.

Are you guys still together?
Nope, I’m definitely not talking to him or dating him anymore. I’m not really going to say how long, or what we’ve done. This is really not about him.

It sounds pretty shitty that he went behind your back and leaked your personal tape. Do you consider yourself a feminist?
I’m pretty feminine. I think so.

Not feminine — feminist.
What does that mean, you’re a lesbian or something?

No, that’s not what I’m asking at all.
What context are you saying it in?

It’s a complicated concept, but I guess at it’s most basic, it means that women are equal to men.
Oh, I definitely feel that women are equal to men. No doubt about that. I mean women should have equal rights to men, every day.

[From Miami New Times]

The article is chock full of other idiocies from Farrah, including her business plans “I feel like opening up a restaurant, opening up a gentleman’s club, opening up a children’s clothing store and doing songs, books, everything that I feel like doing,” and a sample of her music, which is as much of a god-awful autotune mess as you would expect. If Heidi Montag’s music is a 3, Farrah’s is a 0.

Rather than continue to think about this dimwit, I just want to end with an earlier quote from Farrah, who has no idea what feminism means. “Girls have big jealously issues with me. I’m the extreme opposite of what you expect. I’m not about money or fame. You need to rely on your brain and not your body.

    OMG all that stupid in one head…I feel so bad for her daughter.

  2. brin says:

    And she hasn’t had a lobotomy.

  3. Libby says:

    Lmfao at this – 1) a pornstar who leaks a sex tape 2) and all to publicize a film with Lohan, who is possibly the worlds most reported about actress.

    Questions abound, my dear Farrah.

  4. Elisabeth says:

    she’s the reason some animals eat their young

  5. Tessa says:

    I blame MTV. There’s a reason why uneducated teen mothers with the brain capacity of a hermit aren’t part of the public discourse. They’re morons.

  6. Willa says:

    I had a friend that misspelled stupid wrong in a note at least four times back in the day. Farrah reminds me of her. STUPIED!!!

  7. j.eyre says:

    Oh my gosh, I totally think women should have equal rights every day too! Except for Thursdays. Thursdays are kind of dumb so we could, like, not need rights on Thursdays.

  8. TherapyCranes says:

    I’m sorry but this was HILARIOUS. Oh, and she is very orange.

    • lenje says:

      I find it very amusing as well. She’s rambling like 5 year olds, “I wanna do this, I’m gonna be that..” etc.

      • mkd says:

        I know! It’s like listening to my kids when they were 5 yrs old….”I wanna be either a whale trainer, a ballerina, an astronaut or a bingo player when I grow up! Yayyyy!”Her problem is not her youth or her generation (I know LOTS of young women this age who could have told you the definition of feminism in the 8th grade, please….). Her problem is her undiagnosed personality disorder (narcissistic sociopath habitual liar w/delusions of grandeur) coupled with low intelligence (her writing skills are that of a 4th grader, but alas, she’s going to write a novel better than “Shades”….Okayyyy). Plastic surgery can’t fix any of that.

    • JGL says:

      She thought feminism meant Lesbian and that the reporter was hinting about taping a ‘to-be-leaked-in-the-future’ lesbian sex tape.
      Dang, you had to go and spoil it for her talking about women’s rights. Women’s rights doesn’t bring her $$$

  9. Merritt says:

    And this moron is bringing up a child. I can only hope this child seriously rebels and is the exact opposite of Farrah.

  10. Kenyan254 says:

    I honestly feel bad for you Americans.If this is what people encourage and put out there as people that your kids can emulate, then i feel pity for all of you!wtf!I would rather be poor and from the the nations you people despise than have the Kardashians and this kind of stupidity to be associated with me.

  11. lucy2 says:

    At first I was thinking she was playing dumb for attention, but since she’s still going with the “leaked tape” story…I’m pretty sure it’s not an act. Girl is STUPID.

  12. tifzlan says:

    Laughing at how delusional she is to think that anyone would believe that James Deen CHOSE to date her. Please.

    • Felice says:


      Plus Stoya is Queen (and an actual feminist). I don’t watch them but I know that Stoya is an activist who shows that not all women (like this poor soul) choose the adult industry for money. 21st century: Sex positivity is awesome.

      I love how Deen called her out too.

  13. Jackie Jormp Jomp (formerly Zelda) says:

    She procreated, guys. She procreated.

  14. sarah says:

    She is really unattractive. and only 22?!? Wow. Ew.
    Holy hell this girl is stupid. Not even like cute endearing stupid, but stupid stupid.

  15. Maria says:

    “I mean women should have equal rights to men, every day”

    how progressive. feminists only asked about equal rights twice per week.

  16. NM9005 says:

    Farrah can only be famous if people are buying what she’s selling. There is a bigger market for dumbass turdwipes like her (on TV, in the media), then serious talent so blame society. She’s a product of it. In the real world, people like her get the lowest of the lowest jobs but on TV they can make millions.

  17. janie says:

    Don’t criticize me… I watched her when she did the MTV show, stupid she wasn’t. She was very focused, did extremely well in school and had real goals for her future. She adored her daughter, never left her with her own mom. I’m honestly shocked at how she ended up, it didn’t start that way.

    • Annabelle says:

      Not criticizing, but I actually think the opposite. I know she was working on her associate’s degree on Teen Mom, but she wasn’t exactly portrayed as the brightest bulb. She had a hard time stringing together coherent sentences, even more so when she got mad, emotional, or disagreed with something her parents said. She flat out made no sense most of the time. Her “leaked” sex tape story above tells me nothing’s changed with her.

    • Relli says:

      Ikr, i think she came down with a serious case of famewhore once the cameras went away. I remember the early real world cast members talkig about this, some of them were totally cool living thier lives after and some didnt know what to do once they felt the world/producers stopped caring and asking. I think she tried a real job and said f$&* if stupid, vapid and a sex tape is all I need to be even more famous thats what I am going to do.

      And taking another page out of the K playbook her mother Deb “the emotional vampire” Danielson is getting in the biz takings names and audtions too. She recently had one with a pharmaceuticl company. Lets just hope her and her prize winning dughter dont get any ideas from that mother/daughter porn team.

    • Quinn says:

      I have to respectfully disagree…I watched Teen Mom also (I’m a therapist, and I can’t help myself…), and did NOT find Farrah to be intelligent. She had zero insight into her feelings/life/decisions and didn’t make much sense when she argued (which was constantly), and generally made poor decisions around the clock. Had this girl not had the backing of her parent’s money, along with the MTV cash, she would have been in serious trouble. I’ve yet to see this woman finish anything she starts, either…first it’s her limping through culinary school, then it’s Florida, then it’s “I’m getting my Masters, even though I only have an Associates Degree”, then it’s “I’m opening a chain of restaurants”…suddenly…IT’s PORN! Yep, wayyyyy easier than actually having a life plan and sticking with it.
      Not sure any of that points to intelligence. She surely talks a lot though. :(

  18. Susie Q says:

    She thinks we’re all as stupid as she is and actually believe her and Deen were dating. Only in America can you become a celebrity by opening your legs and getting pregnant.

  19. pao la says:

    Farrah dear you can use your mouth to do many things..but speak? Yes, maybe once in a while and not to journalists. She’s an embarassment for all women.

  20. Amanda says:

    She’s such a twit, and ugly to boot.

  21. Tig says:

    She looks like she’s 42! Hope she holds on to the money- and after reading about pro ballers going through 100s of millions, don’t hold out much hope for this “pro-baller!”!!

  22. Lflips says:

    I’m not a fan by any means but I’ll give her a pass on this one. Many women (and celebrities) seem to be totally clueless concerning what feminism is and what it isn’t.

  23. sillyone says:

    Are we sure she is only 22? I am just saying Vanna White looks a good 20 years younger than this woman. And no offense to Vanna by any means porn girl just looks like she could be Vanna’s mom.

  24. Bodhi says:

    I’m assuming her mother cares for the little girl, which is probably for the best.

  25. Annie says:

    OMG she is STILL calling James Deen her boyfriend! How embarrassing! He was PAID to screw you girl, and he did not seem like he was enjoying it either.

    Ugh, she’s ridiculous.

  26. Nick says:

    The people who clearly lack intelligence but try to act like they are the smartest person in the room are extra special. Farrah clearly believes she is intelligent which makes her interviews that much more….fun.

  27. Bianca says:

    “She asked me how to spell orange”

  28. Mandy says:

    I hate her so much. In fact, I think she is the only person in this world I really, truly HATE.

  29. Bess says:

    Why is this chick still getting publicity? When will her 15 minutes be up?

  30. MeowuiRose says:

    I think the thing about her is she has literally used ever trick in the book to stay famous but she has done it a a short period of time in rapid succession. Like with other fame hungry celebs their life dramas are somewhat believable because it seems more “natural”. With her it’s like she sits down with her check list of attention grabbing behavior and decides what to do that day. I feel really bad for little girl. I predict she will become quite a piece of work just like her mama and grandma (who is batsh*t craycray).

  31. mzizkrizten says:

    LOL we all have equal rights to men. As in, each woman has the same right to a man?

  32. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    Female Chauvanist

  33. pantalones en fuego says:

    A few months ago someone commented that she looks like Paul Stanley. Now I cannot unsee it.

  34. Shelby says:

    ..I feel sorry for her child.

  35. tealily says:

    She knows that we all know that James Deen was hired to do a porn with her, right? And that they weren’t dating? Why does she insist on calling this a sex tape still?

    I never really “got” why she is worth talking about at all, but now I truly feel that we are all doing ourselves a disservice by even acknowledging her. It’s not our job to give her money because MTV stopped.

  36. L.E. says:

    Oh. My. God. What has this creature been doing all of her life AND she has a kid? She can’t be real. I mean she can’t exist in real life. All of these doesn’t make sense. Please, someone tell me she is one of those plastic dolls who talks when you pull the string.

  37. Holden says:

    Hmmm feminism, still don’t get it – use it in a sentence?

    “So I made a business deal out of it. I’m smart, and I’m happy that I did that.” Look out world!

  38. Vanessa says:

    Farrah is she ugly inside and out she doesn’t have any good quality on teen mom season one . She regularly left sophia at home with her parents so she can go out and party and meet boys in one episode she was trying to hook up with a guy . And the guy flat out told her she should be at home with her daughter she flip out on the guy Farrah is rude ad disrespect person. She purposely won’t allowed Derrick family to have any contact with sophia Farrah is too busy partying with stripper and drinking to parent her own daughter . Farrah is a completely idiot James was never ever her boyfriend he confirmed that before the tape even came out so I have no idea why she keep insisting he was her boyfriend .

  39. DB says:

    Why is a camel being asked about feminism? I imagine her Wednesdays consist of yelling out “Hump daaaayyy!”

  40. Chloeee says:

    Oh my f****** god, please don’t let me ever see this girl walking down the street

  41. Stacia says:

    Bombastic AIRHEAD! Get thee to a nunnery OR finish high school at least!

  42. sarahbchicago says:

    Wow. Reminds me of Ali G on feminism: “Do you think all girls should try feminism, at least once?” http://youtu.be/oftOCN1jkNo

  43. Gooo says:

    So what she didnt know what feminism is? Like you we’re born with vast knowledge of every ideology get the fuck outta my face with that shit!

    • Cyndi says:

      Hi Farrah…stop trollin’ now. We know not everyone is as box of rocks dumb as you, they (we) are only talking about YOU! XD
      Now get off the internet and pay attention to your kid…for once. Ya’ triflin’ ho bag!
      Btw…did you ever figure out where you knew that “girl” (“her” in the article) Trayvon Martin from?? O.o

  44. Adrien says:

    Don’t be silly Farrah, a lesbian is a person from Lebanon.

  45. Trashaddict says:

    If Farrah doesn’t know about feminism, does that leave more of it for the rest of us????

  46. A says:

    So I googled James Deen because I was curious what he looks like….and wow, I did not expect to see an ugly, pasty, scrawny, nerdy looking guy.
    I thought, with that name, he would look like a greek god.

  47. RdyfrmycloseupmrDvlle says:

    This “Teen Mom” stuff is a pox on humanity. I actually met the creator at a party once. I was sitting there nursing my drink listening to her go on and on about it to a group of fawning admirerers. It sickened me to hear her talk. She had the nerve to spin it as if she was actually HELPING these trainwrecks. I wanted to stand up and throw my drink in her face. I HATE monied opportunists that exploit those that are desperate for options.
    As for Farrah….yes, shes shockingly dumb, ill informed, probably drunk on her new found cash/celebrity etc. I sincerely HOPE she saves and spends her cash wisely because…..much like justin Biebers fame…one day it WILL stop and I hope shes saved most of it. Otherwise I see a very sad future.
