Amy Schumer, Blake Lively Slam 'Sexist' Magazines. Yeah, They're Hypocrites...
Stars are coming out in droves to make political statements. Especially in the past few months... It's a trend rooted in persistence and it comes in waves. Like Muslim Migrants. Or AIDS. Apparently a couple of magazine covers have Hollywood feminists up in flabby arms... So Amy Schumer and Blake Lively graced us with their opinions on the matter.
Last week, the cover of teen magazine Girls' Life went viral for all the wrong reasons. The magazine features headlines like "Wake up pretty!" and "Your Dream Hair"... Boys' Life magazine (which is not affiliated with Girls' Life), in contrast, is scrawled with the words "Explore Your Future" and images of professional tools, like a computer and stethoscope.
Schumer shared the split photo on her Instagram Tuesday with just the caption "no." Lively reposted Schumer's shot and seconded the emotion.

Firstly, the majority of teenage girls are predominantly interested in being considered pretty or attractive. Disagree? Take a peek at social media and get back to me. Do not play a drinking game out of how many puckered up duck faces or bewb/butt shots you see. Don't do it.
Males tend to be interested in math and science more than females. Hence the tons of male engineers. Because SEXISM?! No, because men and women are different. Read more about that here.
So this girly magazine? It's simply responding to the market's demand. A.k.a capitalism. And in this case, millions of females around the globe care about making themselves desirable. You should know, Amy Schumer, since you made an entire movie meant to convince the world that tons of successful men want to sleep with you. I guess we'll take your word for it.
Secondly, Blake Lively? While we're on the subject of magazine covers...
By your standards, these ones look a bit sexist... Wouldn't you say?
Blake Lively is joining in the feminist pow-wow to disavow pushing beauty on girls... While she's also made a pretty penny thanks to that very same "sexist" beauty industry.
Methinks the SJWs got to her (see Leftists Accuse Blake Lively of "Racism!" Over... Her Big Butt?).
Look, is the content silly? Inappropriate for a 13-year-old girl to obsess over? Sure. Still, girls obviously have other interests. You know, like science and stuff. Sports, nature, math, writing. And guess what? There's magazines for ALL OF THE THINGS. Still, they matter not. Why? Because people don't need magazines to tell them what their interests are. People pick up a magazine that's interesting to them. Not the other way around. So if a girl is more interested in science than make up, she can probably find a magazine that suits her. Without Blake or Amy coming to her rescue. But thanks.
Notice something here? These accusations of sexism come from a sex symbol and a potato. Not regular women, but Hollywood starlets. In case you haven't noticed, there tends to be a difference... That difference being these women use empty political gestures to further their careers. Hence Schumer and Lively both simultaneously benefit from the sexism they claim to hate.
By the way, this hypocrisy isn't new. Seems people who "bring awareness" to supposed social issues never suffer under those issues themselves (see Colin Kaepernick Idiotically Protests National Anthem... and What Wage Gap? Everything Wrong With HuffPo's Feminist Video Starring Kristen Bell). They act as megaphones for the left and get publicity for it, while also rolling in the dough dumped on them by a "racist/sexist" society. See how that works?
Since we're on the subject...
