About this submission
I wrote this short with my girlfriend, Lily Bradfield, because we felt alienated by the lack of women--and particularly women of color--in the stoner/slacker genre. We wanted to talk about the pressures young women feel, especially nowadays with the rise of “girl boss” pseudo-feminist hustle culture. As a woman in the AAPI community, those pressures are doubly felt. We hoped to explore the privilege of doing nothing and enjoying youth.
