Let Amy Schumer Make You Feel Icky So Your Daughters Can Be Free

Amy Schumer is not fat. Vaginas smell. Men need to go down on women and talking about all of that is what makes Amy Schumer brave; not her posing semi-nude for a photo. And expressing what it truly feels like to be a woman in a man's world is not crude, it's liberating. Maybe watching <em>The Leather Special</em> makes you feel icky now, but it might free your daughter from feeling ashamed later.
