Amy Schumer

I have to give Amy Schumer credit for one thing: she certainly knows how to keep herself in the news. Whether it’s a sexed-up photoshoot, stealing jokes off a dead comedian, berating a kid over things she herself has said in the past, or attacking Taylor Swift over her body…the woman is clearly skilled at making sure her name stays in the press.

Today brings us yet another example.

Glamour magazine has published a plus-size issue with the stated goal of showing that women of all sizes can be beautiful. That’s not for me to take issue with, but apparently Ms. Schumer fells differently. You would think this might be unseemly for a feminist “icon,” but then again, the rules are always different for them…

I will give Roxanne Gay some credit, though. At least she called out the startling hypocrisy…

Don’t get me wrong: Gay is a nut. Still, credit where credit is due. Also, I think Schumer is full of shit. If she’s a size 6-8, then something is wrong somewhere. A viewer speculated that perhaps her staff is changing out her labels in order to make her feel better. If only they would replace her pastries with salads. Then maybe she could actually get down to that size.

Amy literally says that plus-size women are not cool and not glamorous. Some of you probably agree with the chubster comedian, but then again, you aren’t trying to suck up to feminists on the regular. I think she needs some help with her messaging to go along with the help she needs on her diet.

  1. There’s an intern out there whose only duty is to make sure Shumer’s cloth has all of its size labels swapped without her realizing it.

  2. Being plus size isn’t so bad. Try being 6 foot 6 tall. Potential concussions everywhere unless you calculate the proper ducking angle at all times.

    1. I’m 6’6″ I can relate. We encounter things that get intimate with our heads before we even see or notice them… Hey maybe we can cry rape!?!?


    2. I’m 6’4 and kinda fat, and I have to duck absolutely everywhere. I can’t sit comfortably in most cars, even with the seats all the way back and the backrest down a bit. Shit sucks.

  3. For once in my life I have to agree with Roxanne Gay. The way Garth sorry I mean Amy Complained was like saying “I’m not fat You’re fat!!!”

  4. Hunh. A fatass denying she’s a fatass. Where have I encountered that before?

  5. You’re fat.
    “YOU’RE A DICK!”
    You’re big.
    You’re heavyset.
    You’re plus-sized.
    “That term bothers me.”
    You may be carrying a bit of excess cellulite.
    Never mind.

    It never fucking ends with these people, does it? No matter how much you try and sugar-coat what you’re saying, they’ll still take issue with it.

    George Carlin was right in his routine/rant about soft language. Insecure people are forcing others to adopt soft, PC language in order to hoodwink themselves into thinking that a problem is somehow less of a problem just because the terms used to describe it are less harsh and abrasive.

    “Shell Shock” was used to describe sudden rushes of panic caused by wartime trauma. Then Shell Shock became “Combat Fatigue”. Then Combat Fatigue became every radical feminist’s favourite self-diagnosis Tumblr hashtag: Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Notice how much impact “Shell Shock” has? Notice how little impact “PTSD” has? Exactly.

    People are forced to adopt the kind of language that takes the life out of life, simply because the insecure people don’t want to face the harsh reality that maybe they have vices and do terrible things and that the world is sometimes out to harm them.

    1. Was shell shock ever in the dsm? I 99.9% agree with you….except that I thought ptsd was the disorder diagnosis and “shell shock” was layman.

      But I could be wrong. And I could use Google.


    The cover and article don’t even refer to her as plus sized, and this dummy goes off on a rant about being called plus-sized! Funny how she says there’s nothing wrong with being plus-sized, yet she’s reacting as if someone called her a baby raping Nazi.

    Schumer comes off as a hypocrite of the highest order – acting like she’s all about sisterhood and body positivity, but freaks out when being compared to other plus-sized women and tosses them under the bus.

    Radfems aren’t just giving themselves enough rope to hang themselves, but they’re also building the gallows and harvesting the hemp into rope.

  7. Schumer’s best move was to completely alienate the people who would be the first to defend her from the SJWs who’s approval she craves so much.

    The next time they go after her let’s see how many “racist Republicans” put their necks out to defend her.

  8. What a fucking hack. Very disappointing. I bought her dvds for my wife, not knowing she’s a joke thief and a “sensitive comic.”

  9. My housemates girlfriend thinks Schumer looks like someone who shaved a hamster and then stretched its skin over her face.

    Can’t say I disagree.
