I laughed so hard at Amy Schumer’s new Netflix special, “Growing.”  This very morning I looked at my calendar, saw that it came out today, downloaded, and started watching/listening as soon as I left the house.  This resulted in me laughing hysterically on the subway (attempting to do so silently of course) all the way to work.

I got so much enjoyment out of her explicitly feminist take on womanhood.  I’m at the point in my life where I no longer want to tiptoe to make all men comfortable, and I appreciate her point of view on the realities of pregnancy, periods, and even love.  Usually I’d encourage men to watch a feminist special, but honestly, this one’s probably more for the women to enjoy.  So, I hope they do!
