What’s wrong with being alone anyway? Being alone is sometimes a great place to be, but people are always trying to correct this ‘problem’ for you, even if you yourself don’t have any kind of problem with it. – The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, Amy Schumer

I got out of the shower and stopped to look at myself in the mirror. I looked blotchy and messy and not at all like the girls in those magazines. But I was still [effing] beautiful. I’m a real woman who digests her meals and breaks out and has sweet little pockets of cellulite on her upper thighs that she’s not apologizing for. Because guess what? We all have that shit. We’re all human beings. – The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, Amy Schumer

This is how it’s been my whole life. I’ve always assumed that men see me as just one of the guys, so when someone is interested in me as a girl I am floored. – The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, Amy Schumer

What I’ve learned is that guys are guys, no matter how famous or hot, and they all basically want to hook up with anyone they’re even moderately attracted to who will hold still long enough for them to rub against them. Does that sound like an insult? Because it’s actually something that I love about men so much. – The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, Amy Schumer

I think for anyone to become good at something, they have to fail a lot too. And they have to be completely unafraid to fail or they’ll never make it to the next level. – The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, Amy Schumer

I wanted to run to the top of the Empire State Building and make an announcement to all of them to let them know they are worth so much more than this (dating men they aren’t interested in). That they don’t need to wrangle some warm body to sit next to them just so they aren’t alone on holidays. That they should never let a magazine or dating site or matchmaker monster tell them they’re in a lower bracket of desirability because of their age or weight or face or sense of humor. – The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, Amy Schumer

You should be able to be yourself and keep it real at work, no matter what you’re feeling.  The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, Amy Schumer

I want to use my voice to tell people to make sure they have consent before they have sex with someone. I hope all parents talk to their kids about consent, and when you do, please, please don’t make the mistake my mother made. Don’t do it over a bowl of clam chowder. Because that is just gross and creepy. – The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, Amy Schumer

People often romanticize children or adults with special needs, as if they are innocent-yet-wise creatures who can humble us all into becoming better humans. First of all, nobody can be innocent and wise at the same time… And secondly, I’m not suggesting the ladies of Camp Anchor were either one of those things in particular. But they owned their flaws, and I am grateful I got to meet them… [they] weren’t afraid to claim the guy they wanted to dance with; they didn’t change a thing for the men they loved. They weren’t ashamed of their bodily functions and they didn’t lie to themselves or others. They had no patience for small talk or false pretenses. They would laugh when they wanted to like there was no tomorrow, and cry their eyes out when they felt like it. – The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, Amy Schumer
