Montana Ray interviewed at TCJWW

Sarah Clyne Sundberg: You frame yourself as a feminist. Do you think sexuality complicates feminism?

Montana Ray: I think I was trying to perform an examination of culture in this book, trying to think about how this relationship was conditioned by media and conditioned by my family heritage. But I wasn’t really systematic, or academic, in my approach. I was just kind of in it. I was interested in the slippage between feeling crazy, feeling like your sexuality is not your fault, feeling like you’re the only sane person for a three-state radius and then feeling like you’re totally insane. And I think that’s a really common experience for feminists.
