Hi, I'm Sophia Bush, and I'm here with Glamour
00:03
playing Love It or Leave It Activist Edition.
00:11
Tampon tax, leave it.
00:13
The fact that women are literally
00:15
charged more for everything.
00:18
If a man walks into the dry cleaner with a white blouse,
00:21
it's a five dollar dry cleaning fee, and a woman
00:23
walks into a dry cleaner with a white blouse
00:24
and it's 6.50.
00:26
That's insane.
00:27
Let's just make that stop.
00:29
Meninists, at this point in our current political climate,
00:33
I'm gonna say leave it.
00:34
I don't really know any men whose rights
00:36
are under siege at the moment, so could use
00:38
all of your help to secure gender parity, and fair pay,
00:42
and paid leave, and healthcare access,
00:46
and once we're sort of at a level playing field,
00:50
come to me and tell me your concerns,
00:51
and I will repay the favor.
00:54
The word wook, love it.
00:56
I'm into it.
00:57
It makes people happy, and when it's used appropriately,
01:00
I think it's nice to pay a compliment to someone that way.
01:04
For me personally, a puny protest sign is a love it.
01:07
I love puns embarrassingly so.
01:09
My friends beg me to stop, and I can't,
01:11
so bring them on.
01:13
I want to take pictures of them
01:15
and put them on my Instastory.
01:17
The Second Amendment is complicated for me.
01:19
I'm very, very socially progressive,
01:21
and I actually live in the Midwest,
01:22
but I've also been a sharpshooter since I was 12 years old,
01:26
and I have a concealed weapons permit and I don't carry.
01:28
I could if I wanted to, but I know
01:30
that the Second Amendment was written
01:32
when we were talking about muskets.
01:34
I think any sensible gun owner, of which I am included,
01:39
is happy with background checks.
01:41
I don't need a gun that is carried in the military.
01:43
I don't need to be able to get a gun
01:45
the same that I want one, and I don't think anybody does.
01:48
I'm all for restrictions.
01:49
I'm all for gun control.
01:50
And I'm all for making sure that we figure out
01:54
how to do this better.
01:55
Midterm elections big love it.
01:58
Can't wait.
01:59
2018 is getting closer.
02:02
It's our job.
02:03
We're supposed to be a government of the people,
02:05
by he people, for the people, so people we gotta show up.
