Last summer, child-actress-turned-pop-singer Hailee Steinfeld released a bouncy li'l ode to female masturbation entitled "Love Myself."

"I'm going to touch the pain away," she sings over the track's anthemic beat. "I know how to scream my own name."

And now: In the May 2016 issue of harper by Harper's Bazaar, the 19-year-old mouse-clicking enthusiast has officially declared that she doesn't need no man:

I mean, there's always time for dating. I do feel that right now though — and I hate saying this — my top priority is what I'm working on. It's that and family, and then everything else.

On the topic of her pink-canoe-paddling debut single, she added:

It's about how much power there is in self-love and being able to provide for yourself.

Hmm. Sounds like all those men who feel threatened by women's vibrators might actually have reason to be afraid after all. Sorry, dudes!
