Are You A Feisty Gal?
By Landon Funk
A lot of people have told me that I was "too shrill," "a giant bitch," "a fucking crazy CUNextTuesday," "a feisty motherfucker," and everything in between - as I am sure most of you have too. Instead of taking these to heart, I uses these derogatory comments to fuel my fire. Who is to say that being a giant bitch does not also mean that you have your life together, know what you want, are smart enough to demand respect, and understand your worth?
Now, there is a new clothing brand called Feisty Gal Studio, and they were established to reinforce self-confidence through graphic tees, sweatshirts, hats, and a variety of other products. Created by Laura Aguon and located in Portland, Oregon, the company uses NO PHOTOSHOP on any of their advertisements, internal documents, and every image that could possibly be printed by the studio.
Their badass-ness does not stop there. Feisty Gal Studio uses ethically and environmentally sourced products with eco-friendly inks on incredibly soft fabrics. Not only are they promoting equality for all genders but also for all shapes, sizes, races, sexual orientations and more.
What I love about Feisty Gal Studio - on top of the already cool shit they are doing - is that the company gives jobs to survivors of domestic violence, offering them a place to work after they have left a hostile and toxic environment. Feisty Gal helps these individuals get on the feet and start their healing process. Each product is made by at least fourteen women. If you purchase just one tee shirt, you are giving these women a job.
So I have a question for you: what in the world are you still doing on our site? Go right the heck now to Feisty Gal Studio, and order anything and everything. In doing so, you will be supporting women and girls, survivors of intimate partner violence, and equality across all spectra. Feisty Gal is filled with Funky Feminists, and it has been an honor to partner with them.
Embrace your "giant bitch." She is cool as hell and one feisty motherfucking gal.
