Lena Dunham and "Girls" is a triumph for real nudity

Good for her. Seriously.

but who wants to see "real" nudity on TV? We can see that at home.

How about showing some of the "real men" fully nude on her show? Now that would be controversy I could enjoy.

R4 I could not agree more that there is a double standard. In films it's common to see female nudity. Yet, since that very thing amongst men makes a large segment of the movie buying demographic uncomfortable, it's relegated to what we call art or independent films. A movie that shows two hot, young, straight, females engaging in a little girl-on-girl action will be talked about as a hot scene (think Black Swan), whereas a similar scene with two men will get the "gay theme" label. If straight women can suck it up and stare at silicone for all these years, I'm sure that straight men can handle looking at skin too.

Once again, the "REAL women need to appear on TV" platitudes get thrown around, but it's something nobody really cares about when push comes to shove.

The show seems to be her fantasy of what she would like her life to be. And she is a bit of a sell out. She has been criticized for the lack of diversiity on the show so she creates a character who is male and black and who just happens to love fucking her. Never mind that he comes off more gay than her room mate. And of course we knew he wasn't going to last too long. In a rather contrived plot twist, he broke up with her after a heated discussion on race. Then there is Adam's supposed obsession with her. This doesn't ring true. He didn't really care about her in the beginning of the show and I think men tend to size up pretty quickly if a woman is going to be a casual fuck or something more. They rarely change their minds. Bottom line, she needs to keep her clothes on and show more of what makes the character tick and where she is going.

There's a double standard on the double standard. If "regular" men were naked on TV with their 5 inch cocks, they would be ridiculed for having micropenis.

"Where has the glamour gone? Where is beauty? "
The modern version of glamour has lost any connection with beauty. Plastic surgery, steroids, spray tans, manscaping, hair extensions, starvation diets, it's all become grotesque.
It's gotten so bad, I'd rather see ordinary people being naked!

I'm pretty sure I've read your comments before and now I think I understand your obsessive ugliness about Girls and Lena Dunham. This quote says so much more about you than you realise. It's sad that you rely on tv to give you an escape from your hated 'reality'.

[quote]"get used to it because I am going to live to be 100, and I am going to show my thighs every day till I die”, is her unapologetic reply to critics.
So young, so naive........so embarrassing.
What an ego she has to assume there will always be a appetite for her exhibitionism. The clock is ticking and she's on minute 13.
Most people don't want to see her 'young' fat thighs. NO ONE will want to watch her jiggle them around when she's 100. Hollywood is not kind to even the most beautiful woman as they age. She won't even be able to get a reality show once she hits 40, much less when she's 100.
Oh yeah, and those tattoos will look great on her saggy 100 y/o ass too.

R15 = fat girl who still thinks that playing "you're a sad hater of reality" card she heard a popular girl will make her seem smart and snappy.
Sorry, Chunks. The world requests you keep your clothes on, too, when it's around.

There is nothing "thriumpant" about being fat and showing it to the world.
I understand that the majority of women in Hollywood are abnormally thin but, being fat is also abnormal.
Lena Dunham is not "empowering" or "normalizing" fat girls. She is making a mokery of them and herself.
She may have a bit of talent as a writer but, she is a lousy actress and should stay behind the scene.

Since when is sitting on a toilet naked and [italic]eating[/italic] a "triumph for real nudity"? Who the fuck does this?
I'm reminded of a story a friend told me about when he was drafted back in the late '60s. He'd gone through the whole induction process over an exhausting sleepless two day period, traveling from Chicago to wherever he was sent for basic. Finally at the end of the second day, he went to the latrines before lights out to find some guy taking dump while eating a Twinkie. And without batting an eyelash, the guy said "Hey, there! How 'ya doin'?" in a very southern accent. Can you imagine? Exhausted, tired, scared, homesick, and just plain sick.

I knew a fat, humpbacked, mentally ill exhibitionist like her. She finally got sober and stopped pissing in the streets but kept working in bars and shacked up with this other crazy woman who would introduce herself to strangers by shoving her hand down their pants and shaking their genitalia.

I watched this show last night and it's creepy more than anything else.
Was she wearing a diaper and a baby hoodie/towel? She seems to spend much of her non-naked time in shorts sets. Those are for children. Will she start wearing a baby cap next and carrying a lollipop?
