this used to be a blog about OCD, and then it turned into a blog about processing childhood abuse as an adult. sort of. i also post about music, dana scully, books, and homeland.
I think, “If you hate Lena Dunham that much, I can only imagine how much you must hate me.” I’m a young white woman with an expensive education, and I’ve done very little of note in my life. And maybe that’s indefensible.
But Lena Dunham is the writer, producer, and star of a television show. A really good show. That’s an extraordinary thing for a woman to be at 26 (or any age, of course).
I refuse to believe that a male writer would attract even a percentage of that rage for any amount of privilege, or any lack of inclusivity.
And inclusivity is really important! It should be discussed! It should be a priority! I’m glad that there’s been so much discussion generated by Girls, because these are discussions we need. The lack of diversity on Girls (and virtually every other show on the air) should be criticized. But there is a difference between criticism and evisceration.
yeah. wealth is frequently a hereditary condition and hating someone for circumstances they were born into is stupid. i haven’t seen girls, and i don’t know anything about lena dunham except for the fact that she lives with her parents, but i think it’s awesome that a woman in her mid-20s has a huge cultural thing that’s under her control.
two evenings of torture! #knitting
i literally can’t believe that i’m capable of such things.
It’s REALLY gorgeous. I aspire to your level.
thank you! hopefully in a week it will grow up and be a real scarf.
