LENA DUNHAM EDITION
“It’s because it’s a realistic expression of what it’s like to be alive, I think, and I totally get it. If you are not into me, that’s your problem.”
–Lena Dunham, in response to TV Critic Tim Molloy, who asked, “I don’t get the purpose of all the nudity on the show. By you particularly. I feel like I’m walking into a trap where you say no one complains about the nudity on Game of Thrones, but I get why they’re doing it. They’re doing it to be salacious. To titillate people. And your character is often naked at random times for no reason.”
It’s extremely sad that this dude thought of this question and that it was something that warranted saying out loud. But we admire Dunham’s succinct, frank and smart response. And that she didn’t bother internalizing such a pathetic notion. Game, Set, Match, Dunham!
And the next time somebody comes at us with a put-down so blatantly absurd and misogynistic, we’re gonna take this page from the Dunham playbook of confidence and poise and adopt the same it’s-not-me-it’s-you attitude.
