Comedian Amy Schumer wasn’t in a laughing mood when she revealed her first sexual experience was not consensual.
Schumer, 34, was addressing the growing #MeToo movement, and the shifting attitude towards unwanted sexual advances.
“There are so many other kinds of sexual misconduct. We've all — every woman I know, every woman in this room — we've all had these experiences,” she explained. “And in this current climate, it brings these things up and you go ‘God, none of that was OK’.”
Schumer hinted at her first sexual encounter in her autobiography, The Girl With The Lower Back Tattoo, and revealed at the time she didn’t realize she was being coerced into having sex against her will. It wasn’t until later, when reading a personal diary of that night, that she came to terms with what happened.
The comedian went on to say that women need to be stronger in letting their objections known and used the recent Aziz Ansari controversy to make her point.
“If you have a doctor that makes you uncomfortable, or you get a massage, or you have a date with someone and they coerce you in a situation like the Aziz one, I don't think there's any sort of criminal charge, but I think that it's good for everybody to learn that that behavior's not acceptable,” she said.
