Thank You Amy Schumer – the “honesty bomb,” as quoted by Tilda Swinton
Watching Ellen become speechless one day as her guest took us on a hilarious verbal ride I did not want to end, and did not appear to be ending anytime soon. Who is this girl? I was mesmerized by the simplicity and comic honest truth of everything that spilled out of her mouth. Its not self-deprecating or grandizing. She is just her, unashamed, unapologetic, and humanistically, her.
We are going crazy for her because she does not try to “improve’ herself in the ways of hollywood vanity. Yeah, she’s bigger than a size 2, can you believe it?! More than completely comfortable in her skin, she carries herself with bright confidence and humor. My goodness, who wouldn’t want to date her! How attractive is healthy love of self – so much so that you can laugh at yourself! Attention girls and take notice, we have a fresh new role-model to emulate. Throw away our books on how to get a man and keep him. Be ourselves, in our full honest glory, this is the sexiest dress we can ever wear.
There is no preaching. We will laugh our way to our greatness as she teaches us self-acceptance through her crazy anecdotes and comic perspective of every encounter she recites back to us. She’s not afraid to admit those things we try to hide or keep secret. Not only does she share them, but she’s not sorry, in a unique way, she’s humbly proud. Whether its eating donuts, not working out, or her bedroom bedlam, its all good and funny.
Speaking of the bedroom, I must bring to the forefront my favorite Amy topic: sex. It is so matter of fact and certain for her. Of course her pleasure is as important as the guy. It would not be any other way. Why should it? In a place where she has such certainty, countless conversations with women proves she is a minority. A huge percentage of women stay silent and give up on sexual fulfillment. Men need to be guided ladies. Let’s listen and learn from Amy 101. Tell them what you need. Tell them what feels good to you. Let’s not get all embarrassed. We have different parts that need different attention than men. If we measure ourselves against men and how they are pleased, yes, we might as well stay silent. Enough of this absurdity. We might be a lot less crabby and might even be the ones to invite our mates to the bedroom more often.
I dig this chick. She’s the coolest.
I’m cool too, and so are you! Let’s see it!
