If you read anything this week, read Gabourey Sidibe and Amy Schumer's speeches from the Ms.
Foundation's Gala earlier this month. They both say amazing things and tell horrifyingly beautiful personal stories about having confidence as women. So if you have a vagina, or if you don't, but are still a woman, or if you just happened to come out of a vagina, or... failing all those (wha?), know someone who did, go read.
I only came across these because someone out there knows I'm in love with Amy Schumer. I love her no matter how much she pisses me off whenever she does her weight jokes, because she's a gorgeous smart woman with her own hilarious TV show, and if she's fat, well, the rest of us are just fucked. Oh, and also, because when I looked her up on wikipedia I found out she's younger than me and I'm hitting that point in life where I look around and ohmigod I need to do something awesome before I die (preferably something that rates a wikipedia page) and it's too late, so fuck you, Amy Schumer. And call me. We'll be BFFs! But still, fuck you.
So, anyway, I was gonna post this whole love letter to Amy, until I read Gabourey's. Both are now treasures of equal value. So, go. Get up off your lazy ass Move your finger and click already. Amy's first, and then Gabourey's so you can join the rest of us assholes.
I promise it's worth it.
