10 Times Amy Schumer Nailed Life Perfectly
Comedy Central Standup

Amy Schumer is perhaps the most down to earth, realistic, yet confident female comedian of our time. She says what she's thinking, perhaps what most of us are thinking, and doesn't apologize for it. She's a woman who knows what she wants, knows who she is, and is comfortable with it. In fact, her comfort with herself is the reason she has received so much backlash with her recent rise to fame over the last two years. Here are ten times Amy Schumer summed up life as a woman, life in general, honestly, through comedy. Her jokes often make for great advice.

1. How we attempt to be the most idealistic, perfect person on the planet when we meet people for the first time.

2. How, no matter how many contour videos we watch, how many dresses we buy, or how many times we hit the tanning bed, somehow we never end up looking like an Egyptian princess in an Instagram makeup tutorial.

3. How guys still haven't figured out that most girls do not enjoy having genitals sent to their DM's. Weird.

4. How people rarely eat just "breakfast, lunch and dinner." I mean, I have breakfast part one, part two, then brunch.

6. How we haven't stressed the obvious differences between rape and consensual sex, and therefore, have created a horrific frenzy of assault.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F04%2F636006678598207263-1606584662_200-2.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=839&h=edcf7f80d46f907f8d0b946cef27bf84e7518283b96fed208d8837200c56e3dd&size=980x&c=2622674022 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F04%252F636006678598207263-1606584662_200-2.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D839%26h%3Dedcf7f80d46f907f8d0b946cef27bf84e7518283b96fed208d8837200c56e3dd%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2622674022%22%7D" expand=1]

6. How one can NEVER have too much wine.

(well, sorta)

7. How sexist the media is.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F04%2F636006688743568037-1295609464_200-2.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=954&h=4d6959aeb176439650b2e9ed1df151afdbaa89a500a30a7fd148092147ee9a37&size=980x&c=2972960783 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F04%252F636006688743568037-1295609464_200-2.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D954%26h%3D4d6959aeb176439650b2e9ed1df151afdbaa89a500a30a7fd148092147ee9a37%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2972960783%22%7D" expand=1]

8. How we act and talk about eating fast foods. As if eating anything besides kale and quinoa is the worst thing a person can do.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F04%2F6360066899638864691251701098_200-3.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=494&h=1c67eb104e7f439241d83d1fc81b131dfd8306f0eddece54112ed68c0806bcf5&size=980x&c=2881271653 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F04%252F6360066899638864691251701098_200-3.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D494%26h%3D1c67eb104e7f439241d83d1fc81b131dfd8306f0eddece54112ed68c0806bcf5%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2881271653%22%7D" expand=1]

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."
