We love advice from funny, smart women

Check out this video from Amy Poehler’s Smart Girl at the Party series, it’s from a segment called “Ask Amy.” (via)

Isn’t that so much better than Seventeen’s Trauma Rama section? You remember the one, where girls write in and share their most embarrassing stories for all of seventeen readership to laugh at- with lines like “I farted in church!” or “A tampon was stuck in my hair!” or my personal favorite, and classic trauma rama story “I got my period in the middle of gym class!” These aren’t meant to support girls they are meant to shame them. Amy, on the other hand, counters that culture with sound, supportive advice.

One more piece of advice from Amy for good measure.
