I may say this a lot, but I mean it this time. I am obsessed with Lena Dunham.
I fell in love with her the second I started watching Girls, my favorite TV show (I've watched each season at least twice.) She is an unbelievable writer, director, and actor and is the voice of our generation.
I have seen and read almost everything she has done, she is so inspirational, relatable, and hilarious!
As you probably (hopefully) know she has published her book, Not That Kind of Girl, which I ran out to the store to buy the day it came out. I tore that book apart, staying up till 2am and neglecting my schoolwork and social life to finish it. My favorite thing to do when reading books, especially biographies is to mark down the pages with my favorite quotes to refer back to later on. Unfortunately as I am writing this post I remembered I lent the book to a friend, so.... here are quotes that I googled from the book that I remembered I liked.
“Feminism doesn’t mean women are going to rise, take over the planet, and like cut off men’s testicles.”
"There is room for all of us."
Secondly she gets a lot of shit from people telling her she is not attractive enough to show her body on her TV show. If you feel that way. get.over.it. You really bother me. How dare you tell someone she's not attractive enough to be comfortable in her own skin on her own show! If you don't like it, don't watch it ....
and grow up!
