Sorry, But I Hate Amy Schumer And She Makes Me Ashamed To Be A Woman

Amy Schumer makes women out to be nothing but walking, talking sex machines.

I had a conversation with some friends the other day about comedy. We were chatting about stand-up, romcoms, and Jeff Dunham when out of the blue I mentioned that I hate Amy Schumer. I was expecting to be roasted by my friends, a three of whom were girls, but instead, I was given applause. My friends agreed with me when I said I hated Amy Schumer, the girls included. I expected to be lambasted for not being a feminist by not liking Amy Schumer, but I wasn't.

So I'll just come out and say it: I hate Amy Schumer and she makes me embarrassed to be a woman. Here's why.

Almost every one of Amy Schumer's comedy skits that I have managed to sit through has focused on women being sexual beings. The same goes for her movie, "Trainwreck," which I can say was a trainwreck. Now, I have no problem with women being free with their sexuality. It's 2018! Do whatever you want. What I do have a problem with is listening to Amy Schumer making women out to be nothing but walking, talking sex machines.

I have a major problem with that.

In addition to this, Amy Schumer says some really stupid things and she is looked to as a poster for American feminism. I can't stand that. Amy Schumer has called Meghan Markle her "pregnancy nemesis", has made multiple racist jokes, and just says the most vulgar things. Meanwhile, people look to her as a feminist icon, and all I can think of is why? Listening to Amy Schumer talk, reading her interviews, and seeing her tweets makes me feel ashamed. I'm ashamed to be a woman when I think about how Amy Schumer portrays us. I'm ashamed to be someone who has a vagina, as she so lovingly likes to point out. I'm ashamed to be someone who might even call themselves a feminist.

I'm just ashamed, and it's because of Amy Schumer.

Not only am I ashamed, but my friends are too. My best friend told me that every time she sees something from Amy Schumer on social media, she cringes. My guy friends have said the same thing, and they feel sorry that we have to be associated with someone like her. So it's not just me that's ashamed. It's a lot of people.

So, Amy, I don't like you. You make me feel like less of a woman and less of a person by your insensitive and ill-timed comments. So, please, have some dignity and keep your mouth shut for once. It might do us all some good.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
