There are two sides of the Lena Dunham debate for the most part. Those who love her, and those who hate her. I happen to love her. I think she's fascinating, smart, writing what needs to be said, and funny. I like that she's not afraid to be herself, sorta weird, not perfect, and fearless. What I absolutely cannot stand is the conversation around her body. Sure, she does write her series Girls and she does put sex scenes in it. Twenty somethings having sex is not news. A less then rail thin 20 something having sex is also not news. It's also so besides the point of the work that she does. As someone who spent my twenties muddling through New York, I tell ya it was a lot more Girls then it was Sex in the City. It was messy, hard, less entitled I'm not a millenial after all, but so much of it makes me cringe and laugh because well I've been there.
The NY Post critic who said:
"It's not every day in the TV world of anorexic actresses with fake boobs that a woman with giant thighs, a sloppy backside and small breasts is compelled to show it all."
"In fact, Adam as well as another man are now obsessed with her and can't get enough of her blobby body."
This sort of talk is gross. How about reviewing the actual show? And using the word blobby? Her body is not blobby, nor are her thighs giant. I do not see in a television series review why you need to describe someone's body as blobby. You're a writer. Find a better word, or how about this write about the show? Give me a break. Homegirl wore Zac Posen to the Golden Globes, Zac don't do blobby.
I saw this quote recently and it made me think of this reviewer and well it sorta sums it up for me. Linda Stasi you are an idiot. Hillary Clinton says so.
