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.

“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” READ MORE »

“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. READ MORE »

What might happen if the hit HBO show “Girls” was moved from New York to Los Angeles, and starred a cadre of a neurotic dudes, rather than a bunch of self-involved girls? This hilarious parody video, “Boys,” shows us the bleak truth. [YouTube] … READ MORE »

I can’t handle the cuteness: the eight-year-old daughter of a Reddit user penned this adorable answer to a writing prompt about why it’s cool to be a girl. She says:
We have veginas [vaginas]. We get jobs. We are creative. We have stuff that makes us preanet [pregnant]. We have milk in our bobes… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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

Right now things kinda suck. I know. You wrote an oblivious-sounding piece about how you kind of wished you were getting the chance to be poor and scrappy in your 20s, like artistic… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

Here’s a comforting thought: while our planet threatens to transmogrify into an Easy Bake oven, the world economy teeters on the edge of collapse, and Scientology is permitted to exist as a viable religion and way of life, there’s a 22-year-old out there who’s bummed out because she’s never been poor. Taylor Cotter, a 2012… READ MORE »

Guys, this Craigslist poster was so inspired by Shoshanna on “Girls” that he’s now offering his services as a sex mentor to shy, virginal women everywhere.

Spoiler alert! I am not going to tell you who got married — you’ll have to watch the video to find out — but I am going to say that I am excited about what the marriage means for the sexy quotient in “Girls” second season. As for the season finale of what has been,… READ MORE »

“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 been… READ MORE »

Golden showers, also known as urolagnia, urophilia or watersports, is a sexual fetish where one derives pleasure from the practice of peeing on another person. If you had never participated in or witnessed a golden shower before, that changed with the most recent episode of “Girls,” where Hannah’s boyfriend Adam pees on her in the… READ MORE »

After watching the most recent episode of “Girls,” I came to a rather interesting conclusion. I think the world can safely be divided up into two types of people: 1) People who would laugh if their significant other peed on them (on purpose, as a surprise) in the shower and 2) people who would be… READ MORE »

Okay, before you tell me I am totally reaching with this one, hear me out. The other day, after watching this week’s episodes of “Mad Men” and “Girls,” I was trolling Tumblr when I came across a post by Jenny Deluxe (who happens to write for The New York Times, so she obvs has a… READ MORE »

In the most recent episode of “Girls,” Hannah and Marnie have an exchange where Hannah calls herself a loser. Marnie doesn’t let it slip, she challenges her by telling her it’s some “weird mythology” she has about herself, kind of like the idea “that you need to get 11 hours of sleep every night.”
