Hey! It’s Another “Girls” Season 2 Trailer!

Let’s see, what does this trailer tell us about the upcoming season of “Girls”? Jessa is still married to Chris O’Dowd, though it seems his parents don’t approve. Hannah is spending more time with her gay ex-boyfriend and potentially fighting with him over dudes. Marnie is still kind of sort of pining after that hot…

Lena Dunham Gets Twiggy-fied For Entertainment Weekly

Given Lena Dunham’s fairly recent induction into the Pixie Cut Club, which we presume involved a hazing at the hand of Miley Cyrus, Anne Hathaway, and Michelle Williams, it was only a matter of time before some (fresh! Innovative! Cutting-edge!) photographer and makeup artist decided to give the girl behind “Girls” the full Twiggy. Dare…

15 Brilliantly Ridiculous Quotes From “Girls” Season One (Before Pre-Gaming For Season Two Makes Us Forget)

It’s probably a good thing that Kate Middleton announced her pregnancy yesterday, because for a few days there the trailer for the second season of “Girls” was the big talk of the town. Or at least it seemed that way for a New York minute, and New York minutes are by which all things in life are measured– if…

16 Surprising Things All Girls Do When They’re Alone

So a few days ago I saw this wonderful little article on The Frisky via Reddit about the surprising things that all guys do. One of my favorites was boys disclosing how they un-stick their balls from the side of their legs. It’s actually kind of disgusting and disturbing. And a wonderful reminder how unhygienic…

The Soapbox: Please, Can “Hipster Sexism” Not Be A Thing?

I have very mixed feelings about a piece on’s blog about “hipster sexism.” The authors Alissa Quart and Lauren Sandler author Alissa Quart described “hipster sexism” as:
Hipster Sexism consists of the objectification of women but in a manner that uses mockery, quotation marks, and paradox … ads, photographs, television shows, films, and T-shirts, which…

Bitch Magazine Kills Caitlin Moran Interview Over “Girls”/Race Tweet

If you haven’t fallen in love with Caitlin Moran, there is something wrong with your head. Earlier this year, the Times Of London columnist published a brilliant modern-day feminist screed called How To Be A Woman; I literally can’t keep it on my bookshelf for longer than five minutes before another girl friend wants to borrow it.

The Soapbox: The Conversation I Wish We Were Having Instead About Lena Dunham’s $3.5 Million Book Deal

“Girls” star Lena Dunham evokes a passionate response from bloggers and journalists, especially in women’s media. So I’m a bit nervous about admitting that my thoughts on Dunham’s oeuvre is neutral, even dispassionate. She’s overexposed for a small and fairly meh body of work:  “Tiny Furniture” wasn’t that great and I got bored with “Girls”…

Jemima Kirke Is An Artist Not An Actor, Shows Her Boobs And Preggo Belly (NSFW)

“Acting is secondary—I don’t feel like it’s going to stick around because it’s not something I want to do forever. My art has always been my top priority and I have far more experience in that field than I do in film. It’s hard to explain without sounding like a dick. I’m not that person.

Emmy Awards 2012: “Girls,” “Breaking Bad” & “Downton Abbey” Rule The Nominations

The 2012 Emmy Award Nominations were announced this morning and, personally, I was pretty stoked on the nominations. “Girls” and Lena Dunham were nominated in the comedy series and lead actress categories which made me think two things: A) “Girls” is a comedy series? and B) Suck it, haters! Practically the entire cast of “Breaking…

The Soapbox: Some Friendly Advice For That 22-Year-Old Girl Who Wishes She Was Poorer

Some thoughts for Taylor Cotter (the 22-year-old girl who wrote about wishing she could be poorer on the Huffington Post):

Have You Ever Romanced A Much Younger Man?

The new movie “Hello I Must Be Going” stars Melanie Lynskey as a newly divorced woman and Chris Abbot (Marni’s hot woodworking ex-boyfriend on “Girls”) as a much younger (like, 19-year-old) man who enter into a fling. The film’s gotten very mixed reviews (not that those will stopping us from seeing Charlie get naked), but…

Lena Dunham On Her Fears, Her Dog’s Penis

“My biggest nightmare is that I do something where [HBO would] be like, ‘That’s why you don’t give shows to 25-year-old girls.’ I’m always afraid that I’m being unprofessional, yet I continue to sign all my e-mails ‘xoxo.’ All my freakouts have been pretty private and directed at family pets and/or people I have bee…
