On the left is a sculpture of the goddess Aphrodite, who is renowned for her beauty. On the right is @amyschumer. What a wonderful resemblance between two beautiful women. So many women and young girls are shamed by the media and fashion industry for not having a flat stomach and not being a size zero. But look, the goddess of beauty is portrayed here with stomach rolls and doesn't have a perfectly smooth, toned body. I want to remind everyone that they do not have to be a Victoria's Secret model to be a beautiful goddess with a beautiful body. Your body is not bad, ugly, or wrong. Embrace your inner goddess. #bodypositive #amyschumer #everybodyisagoodbody #Aphrodite
We found Amy Schumer's doppelgänger: a centuries-old sculpture of Aphrodite. OK, technically Instagram user @whitneyzombie gets the credit here for pointing out that Schumer bears an eerie resemblance to the Greek goddess who was once seen as the pinnacle of beauty. The fact that Aphrodite is also the goddess of love, pleasure, and procreation seems especially fitting for Schumer, who’s unafraid to tackle those topics.
Despite looking like a clone of Aphrodite, Schumer gets fat shamed all the time. Hopefully this side-by-side photo will be a wake-up call for how warped our perception of beauty has become.
