Amy Poehler Throws Major Shade At White Male Privilege In The Most Charming Way Possible

August 28, 2014: Men, now you know what it’s like to be a woman.

As if there weren't enough reasons to love Amy Poehler, she just schooled a guy on what it means to be a woman in the most charming way possible.

In a preview clip from the upcoming episode of "The Approval Matrix” – the Sundance Network's new panel show – Poehler was asked to comment on the difficulties of the “modern man.”

When host Neal Brennan lamented about how "being cool [for men] is, like, passé” and how they have to be “awkward and adorkable” at the same time nowadays, Poehler gave the following response:

"Well, this feeling that you're having every day — which is like, 'I'm supposed to be all things' — is a feeling that women have every day and have their whole lives. So you're just starting to experience it now."

Poehler is often referred to as a feminist icon. She is the founder of Smart Girls At The Party, an empowering online community for young girls.

On the subject of women, celebrities especially, speaking against feminism – an online trend that took off recently – the "Parks and Recreation" star told Elle magazine:

"I don't get it... That's like someone being like, 'I don't really believe in cars, but I drive one every day and I love that it gets me places and makes life so much easier and faster and I don't know what I would do without it.'"
