Stephen Colbert is a feminist, and proudly proclaims it in a new op-ed.
Writing for Glamour magazine, Colbert talks about why he thinks women should run everything: “Sometimes I wonder whether the world would be a better place if women were in charge,” he writes. “It would be pretty easy to make that happen. Simply tell the men of the world that you’re trying to start a campfire. While we’re all arguing with one another about proper kindling placement and whether using lighter fluid is cheating, women can just quietly start getting stuff done.”
He goes on to talk about how he’s deeply in touch with his femininity, he falls on the gender spectrum between Channing Tatum and Winnie the Pooh, and he once played a woman in a high school play.
But, he cautions: “It’s not my place to mansplain to you about the manstitutionalized manvantages built into Americman manciety. That would make me look like a real manhole.”
