Amy Poehler Gives the Best Possible Description of What It's Like to Be a Woman
The Approval Matrix is a new Sundance show inspired by the New York Magazine back page pop culture round up. This week, host Neal Brennan got lost in a black hole of What Women Want. Because it’s so hard to figure out what they’re looking for: do they want an actual “nerd” or a cool guy who looks like a nerd? They say they want a “nice guy” but only date jerks (cue every amateur stand-up routine ever). It feels like he’s supposed to be all things at once, and that’s frustrating. So Neal called in Amy Poehler for some advice and she, in the nicest, most eloquent manner possible, basically told him to shut the f*ck up. Oh, you’re suddenly finding it hard to navigate the contradictions that have been placed on you? THAT’S WHAT IT’S MEANT TO BE A WOMAN SINCE THE BEGINNING OF TIME.
