Amy Schumer Covers ‘Glamour’ Magazine: ‘I Have a Belly And I Still Deserve Love’
Amy Schumer continues to empower women yet again.
In her cover story for Glamour magazine, Schumer says she’s not trying to be a feminist – it’s just who she is as a person.
“It’s innately inside me,” she tells the interviewer, her sister Kim Caramele. “I have no interest in trying to be a perfect feminist, but I do believe feminists are in good hands with me.”
Part of who she is includes not apologizing for her body or her sexuality and encouraging other women to feel the same. Referencing her Glamour Women of the Year Awards acceptance speech – during which she proudly proclaimed she’s 160 lbs. and can still “catch a dick” – she reveals the difference between her saying it and a man saying the same thing.
“If a guy was like, ‘I can get p*ssy whenever I want,’ that guy would be a dickhead. But to deny that there’s a major difference is ridiculous,” she explains. “For women, we’re taught to eat less until we disappear. And trained to believe that if you don’t look like everyone else, then you’re unlovable.”
“Men are not trained that way,” Schumer continues. “Men can look like whatever and still date a supermodel. I’m proud of what I said. I think it’s good to see somebody saying: I have a belly. And I have cellulite. And I still deserve love. And to catch the old D. And to not apologize.”
With the being said, Schumer has one goal in mind with her continued rise in power and fame: “I want to make women laugh. I want to make them feel beautiful in their own skin. I want to empower them to use their voice and not apologize. And I want a jet.”
