Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s New Video Is All About The 'F' Word

As in feminism! What did you think we meant?

From Beyoncé's all-caps "FEMINIST" backdrop at the 2014 VMAs to Taylor Swift's realization that she's been "taking a feminist stance" for a while, the past month has been pretty exciting for those who like their feminism planted firmly in their pop culture.

And now, Joseph Gordon-Levitt -- no stranger to public discussions of the other "F" word himself -- has chimed in with a contribution of his own.

In a new YouTube video, the "Sin City" actor announces a collaborative project for his site, HitRecord, where literally anyone who wants to can upload a video of her or himself talking about their relationship with the word "feminism."

"To me, it just means that your gender doesn’t have to define who you are, that you can be whatever you want to be, whoever you want to be, regardless of your gender," Gordon-Levitt explains, clarifying his own stance on feminism for the purposes of the announcement.

However, he understands that as a man he can't really tell a woman how she should or should not feel about the word. "It should be up to the woman to decide," he says.

"It's complicated," JGL says of the entire discussion, before adding that's it's still totally one worth having. Couldn't agree more, dude. Who else wants to jump in?
