Amy Schumer Talks About Her Husband’s Autism Diagnosis


Amy Schumer’s latest Netflix comedy special Amy Schumer Growing dropped today. I haven’t watched it, but I am charmed explicitly by one subject she addresses. In her new set, she reportedly discusses her spouse and his place on the autism spectrum.

As a matter of first importance, I will completely admit that despite the fact that I have somebody near me who was had Asperger’s. However, I didn’t realize that the diagnosis is as of late getting to be viewed as obsolete. However, as Hans Asperger documented his research during the 1940s, it makes sense this would advance.

Anyway, Schumer disclosed to the gathering of people, “I knew from the beginning that my husband’s brain was a little different than mine.” She seemed careful with her language, then saying, “I have to start this over because I really want to get this right because I love him very much.”

Evidently, there’s been some negative response online as though Schumer “outed” her better half as being on the spectrum. I experience difficulty trusting Schumer composed this into her special without talking and consulting with him. Her circle of people simply tend to be grow bigger by bigger. Furthermore, by addressing her extraordinarily huge group of fans, it communicates an important message that doesn’t get said almost enough: that people on the autism spectrum possess the capability of having “normal” romantic and sexual relationships, even with the biggest of superstars, and that those not on the spectrum shall even consider themselves lucky to have such a partner.

“My husband was diagnosed with what used to be called Asperger’s. He has autism spectrum disorder. He’s on the spectrum. And there were some signs early on,” Schumer says.
