However Schumer’s Barbie – who isn’t ‘perfect enough, is a bit eccentric and doesn’t quite fit the mould’ – is an outcast.
She then goes on an adventure in the real world, before returning to save her hometown, armed with the knowledge that real beauty is on the inside, and the key to happiness is freeing oneself from an unattainable standard of perfection.
Amy Schumer ‘a little sluttier than the average bear’ : ‘Inside Amy Schumer’: It’s Not Just Sex Stuff
One of Amy Schumer’s comedy routines begins with the declaration, “I’m a little sluttier than the average bear. I really am.”
Sex as a subject for Schumer wasn’t a conscious decision. She says she was always a sexual girl, but that as she grew older and came into her own, sex was simply the thing she was thinking about and talking about with her girlfriends. She questions how attractive she is and “how slutty” she is — and it’s something she goes back and forth on. These thoughts, questions and conversations spilled naturally into her comedy.
