I think what Lena Dunham is doing with her show Girls is actually really empowering for women of all ages. When i was a little girl i always snuck a few hours of late night HBO in when no grown ups were around. If i had watched Girls instead of Sex and the City i would have grown up to see the world a little differently—dare i say—maybe better.
Things like “beauty”, “goals”, “motives” and “sex” would have been portrayed to me in a far less glamorized yet no less interesting sort of way. Good for you little pervy tweens out there streaming episodes of Girls with your parents hbogo passes! May you blossom into this world a better version of me and make it even better.
