Stephanie Chaplin (24) considers herself progressive.
The former USYD arts student ticks the right boxes on paper including living in Sydney’s inner west, being an avid reader of Pedestrian.TV and following Clementine Ford on Instagram.
“I can’t stand the patriarchy,” she says defiantly. “Or white supremacy for that matter. We need more woman of colour represented in the workplace”
However despite Stephanie’s gutsy activism, there is one area in life where she won’t apply the same rules: Her sexuality.
“Oh, I’m not that progressive” laughs Steph when asked if she ever swipes right on Asian guys.
“I don’t quite go for Jackie Chans, if you know what I mean. Oh wait can I say that? Haha, woops!”
“What I’m saying is that I have preferences, you know hun?”
“And by that I mean 6’2, big **** and looks like Chris Hemsworth”.
When reminded by her girlfriend that she last hooked up with a Filo guy, Stephanie looks over at Meagan genuinely confused.
“Are you talking about Ricardo? Oh babe he was Latino haha x”
