Amy Schumer Gave the Best Answer Ever to “Who Wore It Better?”
Between hilariously crashing weddings and working on a righteous collaboration with JLaw, Amy Schumer has been killing it lately. In all her work as a comedian and writer Amy strives to question the crappy ideas society has about women and girls and gets us to think about them in a new way. Most recently, she took to Twitter to ask a fashion site why they felt the need to incite girl fights.
It was totally sweet.
The Fashion Spot tweeted a pic yesterday asking the age old question “who wore it better” about a dress worn by Jordin Sparks, Fergie and Amy herself (see above — lookin’ damn good, girl). Amy replied to this tweet weighing in on the v important “issue.”

Her response is hilarious and perfectly sums up the weird Hunger Games-like mentality the media has when talking about women, this idea that one woman has to win. We’ve all seen the fake feuds reported on or even those bogus “when did this become sexier than this” memes about women but do we EVER seen them about famous men? Never, not once. And that’s a little gross.
It’s really refreshing to see women stand up and call out the problematic nature of how people talk to them. Look at Chrissy Teigen who publicly shamed Instagram commenters who called her fat, or Zendaya who shut down haters commenting on her hair or even Lindy West from Jezebel who personally confronted her fat shaming Internet troll.
These women are strong and not taking crap from anyone, and neither should you. In the words of Zendaya, do you boo boo, do you.
What sites do you feel cover women fairly? Tell us in the comments!
