Sometimes people make assumptions about pregnant people. Like that every pregnant mama is craving pickles and ice cream, or that a mama-to-be is suddenly less committed to her career just because she’s carrying a baby. Perez Hilton recently made that assumption about comedian and actress Amy Schumer, and she quickly set the record straight, letting the world know that women don’t fade into the background just because they are pregnant. One week after the world learned Schumer and her husband Chris Fischer are expecting their first child, Perez promoted an episode of his podcast on Instagram, noting in the photo caption that ” #AmySchumer ‘s career has stalled.”
You want our thoughts, Amy? We think you’re absolutely right. Pregnant women do not disappear, and no pregnant mama should be made to feel like she should, or that being pregnant means her career has “stalled.” The pickles and ice cream thing may be kind of true for some, but this sure isn’t.
