If you write "Amy Schumer" and "Fat" to Twitter, you will see that barely one day goes when someone does not call her the offensive word. Often they do it on pretty awful conditions, like @Dolly_World, who said, "Hi #AmySchumer, you're sad to be fat and ugly. It's very offensive to any of us who accidentally happens on a photo of you" or @MMAFFCA , who declared "Amy Schumer is an odd chance. If you think she is thin, you must be an elephant."
The regret of a famous woman equal to the average woman in America is constant.
You would not know this from any of the upset directions to Amy Schumer's new movie, "I'm fine." There Schumer plays a handsome woman who, after encountering her head on SoulCycle, begins to look so beautifully beautiful. Some critics of the premise have pointed out that the casting of Schumer in this role is absurd. On Twitter, Jeffrey Walters said, "It seems like such a good idea, except that Schumer is too good at the role." Sofie Hagan tweeted, "Amy Schumer is blond, white, skilled, femme and yes thin. She is the ideal of beauty in society."
Not if the people call her an odd chance constitutes a part of society. And unfortunately for all of us they are doing it.
Other women are worse does not mean that average women like Schumer are doing well right now. Feeling unsure if your body is a fairly reasonable response to people who call you fat every day. The social beauty standards are so stiff that virtually no woman can meet them perfectly, with the possible exception to Emily Ratajkowski, who appears in the film as a woman who meets the standards of society, good, perfect.
Enjoying the print society makes women look young, beautiful and very, very thin is hilarious. Schumer has responded to that pressure and created some amazing comedy moments on her television show "Inside Amy Schumer."
Her sketch show comedy can be more tasty because she uses it to laugh about her body instead of expressing real vulnerability about it. Most of her sketches encounter a society that tries to embarrass her instead of acknowledging that their shame can make her feel bad. Even her previous films ̵
How many times have you heard a woman proclaim that she is "bad" when she orders fertilizers?
The fact is that "I Feel Pretty" tackles the fact that most women are not feeling well, or also, about their appearance most days.
An 2011 Glamor magazine survey showed that 97 percent of women have at least one "I hate my body" moments per day. At the same time, a survey of "Today" / AOL found that only 36 percent of men feel bad about their appearance. By 2017, a Groupon study found that American women spend about $ 3 756 a year on their appearance (men spend on average only $ 2,298.) And according to a study by Dove from 2016, 85 percent of women say that they choose "important life activities "when they do not feel good about their appearance.
"In Feel Pretty" is not ideal on many levels. The fact that Schumer's character recites a cordial speech in praise for a cosmetics line, an industry that affects women's insecurity, feels absurd.
But the film addresses how women's physical physical insecurity limits them when it comes to going for what makes them happy – no matter if it's a job, a boyfriend or even eats something high in calories. How many times have you heard a woman proclaim that she is "bad" when she orders fertilizers, like eating french fries is a moral failure? If we were more convinced, or heard fewer messages about how we had to look in a particular way, would we go for more that make us happy? Probably.
Amy Schumer, a size 12 comedian in a world that often requires women to be a size 2, has risen over her critics to become extremely successful. But many women do not come. Lots of women will internalize messages about how they must become more beautiful before they deserve happiness so much that they do not even try.
If Amy Schumer does not feel quite all the time – she just keeps a mirror in the same way that most of us also feel.
