One of my favorite new comedians, Amy Schumer, is one of the most popular comedians out there right now. The writer of Trainwreck, the movie, has a lot to say about self-love, positive body image and loving her shape, having ambition and ignoring her haters. She also reminds me of myself fifteen years ago. Some of my friends ask if we are possibly related? She is changing the narrative about women’s sexuality today and her forthright style is funny, shocking to some, and real. Here are some of her best quotes.
ON BEING UNAPOLOGETIC
“I will speak and share and f— and love, and I will never apologize to the frightened millions who resent that they never had it in them to do it.”
“I am a woman with thoughts and questions and shit to say.”
“Nothing good ever happens in a blackout. I’ve never woken up and been like, ‘What is this Pilates mat doing out?'”
ON BEING A WOMAN
“It’s work having a vagina. Guys don’t think that its work but it is. You think it shows up like that to the event? It doesn’t. Every night it’s like getting it ready for its first Quinceanera, believe me.”
“I get labelled a sex comic. But if a guy got up onstage and pulled his dick out, everybody would say, ‘He’s a thinker.’”
