Amy Schumer DGAF that some feminists are upset about her #AskHimLess hashtag, because she says she fights for the cause every day.
The Trainwreck star was taken to task by a Bustle writer for supposedly deflecting the attention from the #AskHerMore cause with her own funny hashtag. At the time, she responded with her usual candor.

Schumer explained that the writer’s comments really rubbed her the wrong way because she has devoted her career to portraying women as strong, intelligent, funny and real. “I just thought the wording was funny, you know?” she told the Hollywood Reporter of her hashtag. “Of course I want women to be asked more than what dress they’re wearing — that’s my whole thing! So yeah, it did annoy me. I’ve devoted my life to being a feminist and showing women as more than just vapid, materialistic sex-monsters.”
Schumer also addressed that nasty movie critic who said she wasn’t sexy enough to play a romantic lead. “From the bottom of my heart, I don’t care,” she told THR. “I didn’t star in this movie because I’m the prettiest girl. You’re not going to catch me developing an eating disorder and getting a bunch of work done. I’m trying to say something and make people think.”
We can’t imagine too many ideals more feminist than that.
