Amy Schumer is the latest female celeb who is sick and tired of hearing the term “plus-size,” and considering there’s nothing flattering about it (in fact, it’s a gross, derogatory label that needs to go away, stat), it’s a wonder that some retailers and magazines still don’t get that.

That said, Glamour is kind of off the “plus-size” train. They have a special edition out, sponsored by Lane Bryant, celebrating the fact that women can be “chic at any size.” The words “plus-size” aren’t mentioned anywhere on the cover — but Amy’s name is, and she’s not happy.

Schumer was listed as one of the “Women Who Inspire Us,” along with stereotypically “plus-sized” Melissa McCarthy, Adele and cover girl Ashley Graham. All gorgeous, talented women, sure, but Amy thinks lumping them together is pointless.

We love the message she’s passing along here. Girls who look at Amy’s body type and automatically believe that she’s plus-size (thanks to media’s obsession with labels) are getting a raw deal. That said, nowhere on Glamour‘s cover are the words “plus-size” mentioned. In fact, all in all, it’s as body-positive as it gets. Hmm. The mag released a statement to TooFab, apologizing if they offended her, but are standing by their cover.

We get what Amy is saying; body image and clothing sizes have become so skewed, but including Amy on that list wasn’t meant to be an offensive thing. To some, it’s coming across as a little odd that she would take it that way, considering how she’s always talking about how she doesn’t look like other women in Hollywood.

She again took to Twitter, both to defend and add to her Instagram post.

Both Schumer and Glamour make compelling arguments but bottom line? The labeling needs to stop. Now.
