"Wait A Second, Did Amy Schumer Rape a Guy?"
Comedian Amy Schumer recently gave a speech at the Ms. Foundation for Women’s Gloria Awards and Gala, an event dedicated to saluting “women of vision.” Her speech then went viral, many people praising its powerful message.
After seeing my Facebook newsfeed explode with “<3 Amy” statuses, I decided to read a transcript of her monologue. Amy talks about her experience of graduating from high school and going to college, losing her confidence along the way. By the end of her story, she finds her self-worth. I don’t take issue with this at all. It’s a very familiar (yet important) message, one of which any person can relate.
What I did find uncharacteristic about Amy’s speech was the possible rape she might have committed in order to find her self-worth.
