Lena Dunham Says Men Are Just As Sensitive As Women

“I never chalk up anything to the gender divide and say ‘Well, that’s just a male thing.’  I hate the conventional wisdom that men are supposedly complete pieces of shit and it’s our job as women to put up with them.  Men are just as sensitive and easily victimized as women are, but there’s not as much of an infrastructure for expressing it.  That drives me nuts.  We’re all humans and doing human stuff.  We’d have a better world if everyone had someone they could pay for talk therapy.”

Lena Dunham sat down to answer 20 questions in the latest issue of Playboy and had some insightful things to say about men, feminism, and learning the birds and the bees. God, do I agree with her on this one — if everyone could just have access to a little therapy, even people who think they don’t need it, we’d all be better off, because we’d be addressing our shit instead of taking it out on other people — our friends, our families, the people we date, etc. When I become President, it’ll be free therapy for everyone! Hurrah! Anyway, click on to read some more choice quotes from Dunham’s Playboy interview… Keep reading »

"This silence is literally torturing me."

God love her, but Lena Dunham has a particular way about her. Which is why Chelsea Davison’s spot-on impersonation of Dunham auditioning for the movie “Zero Dark Thirty” is so hilarious. “You know,” says Davidson’s Dunham, “if I actually have to waterboard you, that is really going to scar me, like, emotionally.” [YouTube]

Insult comedian Lisa Lampanelli has made headlines again – for all the wrong reasons. Last week during the Writers Guild Awards, she shamelessly tweeted a picture of she and HBO “Girls” producer and star, Lena Dunham captioned “Me with my Ni**a @LenaDunham of @HBOGirls – I love this beyotch!!”

The interwebs erupted with rage as yet another privileged white comedian made a “joke” at the expense of the Black experience. The ubiquitous nature of racism means while we see and hear it everywhere, we’re rarely given the opportunity to understand the motivation behind it. Lampanelli’s entire shtick is to exploit the sensitive nature of race and homosexuality and to make money from abusing the art of comedy, not taking responsibility for the social implications of her “work.” Keep reading »

  • Lena Dunham has finally tweeted a response about comedian Lisa Lampanelli’s use of the N-word in a TwitPic caption of the two ladies this Thursday. I believe Lena when she says that she would never use the racial slur herself  – and I realize she didn’t use the word in this — but I think it’s lame she took so long to respond to it. [Gossip Cop]

Patrick Wilson's Wife
Has some thought about his "controversial" "Girls" appearance. Read More »

Lena Dunham is everywhere right now. So, it’s no surprise that she will be gracing the cover of the March issue of Rolling Stone. In the interview with Brian Hiatt, the “Girls” creator talks about her struggles with anxiety and OCD, her childhood fear of sex, her intravenous vitamin drips and her reaction to criticism about the show’s lack of diversity. I was able to dig up a few quotes from the piece before it drops. If these quotes are any indication, the interview should prove to be a provocative one. Check them out after the jump.

Namely that it’s really not so unrealistic that a guy as hot as Patrick would sleep with a woman with a muffin top like Hannah/Lena Dunham, because Patrick does her (with her size 10 muffin top body) all the time. Suck it, haters. [Twitter via The Gloss]

The best way to define what is “sexy” is to first define what is not sexy. Duck face? Not sexy. Fake tans? Not sexy. Internet think pieces about how some young woman making millions in the public aquarium isn’t sexy? Not sexy AND IRONIC.

Lena Dunham’s character Hannah in “Girls” is sexy. Apparently this is a thing that has to be written. She combusts with sexual energy and heartbreaking vulnerability — she simultaneously claws out of and slinks around comfortably in her tattooed skin. Keep reading »

More Naked Patrick Wilson, Please!

So how about last night’s “Girls” huh? It was definitely one of the weirder episode of the season and I half-expected Hannah to wake up at the end of the episode to realize her dalliance with a sexy older man (played by Patrick Wilson) was but a dream. Kudos to Lena Dunham for casting such a hottie in the series’ possibly most naked episode. At this point, I’m pretty sure I know Dunham’s breasts better than my own.

Anyway, the episode starts with Wilson’s character Joshua coming into Grumpy’s and complaining that someone from the coffee shop is using his trash can for disposing of their garbage. Hannah eventually stops by his house and admits to being the culprit. She initially started dumping Grumpy’s trash in his can because she lost the key to the dumpster and didn’t want to tell Ray. Then she kept using Josh’s dumpster because they liked how the illicitness of it made her feel. All this talk about naughtiness must have gotten both Hannah and Joshua in a tizzy because pretty soon they were fucking in his kitchen. NSFW clip above! Keep reading »

“I don’t believe that people of color, sexual preference, or gender need to be shaken indiscriminately into every series like some sort of exotic seasoning. If the story calls for a black character, great. A story about a black neighborhood doesn’t necessarily need white characters just to balance the racial profile. But this really seemed like an effort was made to add some color — and it came across as forced. … We’re supposed to find these girls somehow charming because of their flawed characters. Their intense self-involvement is meant to be cute and it can be… at times. But not enough to overcome our impatience with their inability to have any personal insight. They’re all educated but fatally ignorant.”

––Oh, that’s just basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar weighing in on the “Girls” racial diversity controversy. Abdul-Jabbar might be up there on the list of the world’s least likely “Girls” watchers, but I am super into his thoughtful, measured take on the show. [Huffington Post]
