First time it happened, I sad in a bar with the guy I had seen and his friends. I mentioned that I had just seen Togvrag and thought that it was the most fun I’ve ever seen that I was afraid to laugh so hard. “Hvem er der igen?” Sagde en af hans venner fra hele bordet. Da jeg fortalte ham, på stjernen (og forfatteren) var Amy Schumer, svarede han: “Oh, I do not think she’s funny.”
Min kæbe faldt. Vi har ikke alle de samme sans for humor – nogle mennesker hader Kontoret and I think it’s a comic masterpiece – but I was a bit shocked by this guy’s answer. Inde jeg Amy Schumer var en viral sensation; how could this guy not appreciate her as the comedy giant she is?
I rasped her list of results, her hilarious sketches, her infinite retweeted joke, and his response stopped me dead in my tracks: “She’s too vulgar,” he said.
Mit ansigt rodnede; Jeg blev irriteret. For vulgært?! Hvad betyder det endda? Selvfølgelig er sandheden, jeg vidste that What it means And Schumer has of course dealt with this problem in a hilarious way. “Jeg får mærket en sex tegneserie,” sagde hun engang Esquire. “Men if one guy came up on stage and pulled his cock out, everyone would say,” He’s a thinker. “

Det er sjovt, fordi det er sandt. Tænk på et late-night comedy show du nogensinde har besøgt eller set på tv. Mandlige komikere makes sex joke and joke about dating. They speak of kind of brutal men realistic things, as the body does. Jeg griner, knuser lidt, rødder. Men is it because it’s vulgar? These routines often concern traditional taboos, as we are still, as a society, not open about. Og hvis Amy Schumer er vulgær, hvad er Bob Saget??
“For vulgære” er en kritik, I have heard charged for Schumer more than just one night at the bar. I’ve had other guys random to tell me that some of her jokes can be brutal, and part of me wonders if it’s just because she gets real about her vagina and if you’ve read the first chapter of Pigen med den nederste tilbage tatovering, you know what I’m talking about.

Men if it causes some men to feel uncomfortable, should we perhaps applaud Schumer even more? Kan det overfølsomhed over for mænds ubehag være årsagen til, at nogle af os whisperer when we talk about our periods or even talk with the fact that tampons are taxed as a luxury article?
It should of course say that Schumer should be able to talk openly about her body, just like how she really feels like a bikini wax or how she really felt during her first and only night’s sleep with the muscular British hottie. Not only is it her life, but it’s also how men talk about their bodies and the things they do. (Undtagen i deres tilfælde, måske lidt mindre eftertænksomt.)
Hopefully, these double standards will disappear before I’m in my eighties, but until they do, it’s comforting to know that Amy Schumer wants to keep pointing to it, making us laugh and getting real about her sex life – though det betyder gør lama dudes overalt føler sig lidt ubehageligt.
