This is the first show in the history of cable television where male viewers actively root for the heroine to keep her clothes on.

Attitudes like this will certainly help you win over women voters in 2016.

Look, if you were as surprised as I was that Mitt Romney lost in November

Oh. Nevermind.

You need to make sure the people around you hear those answers, but step one is to be a part of the discussion. And step two is eventually taking over the reins of pop culture ourselves. We'll know we're winning when we see the conservative equivalent of Girls.

So, basically, you're annoyed that somebody dared to cast a woman in a lead role who wasn't stereotypically attractive. And I'm sure, like most conservatives, you just can't understand why people think you hate women.

Is she married? 'Cause I imagine that that is the face she'll wear at home most of the time when she's berating her husband.

I think it is good for America. It highlights the dangers of horrible, awful tattoos on pasty, flabby skin.

Keep up the good work Show I accidentally watched part of once, when the star took off her clothes showing her horrible, awful tattoos on pasty, flabby skin.

Oh, he did. And pulled his crank like it was a stuck doorknob. Hasn't the infatuation with Sarah Palin proven that most conservative males have a grandma-boning fantasy they dare not speak?

This kind of lends Dunham an air of importance that isn't really there.
 
2013-01-30 11:22:21 AM  
Also, this sounds like an article written by a conservative guy who genuinely likes Girls and is trying to figure why, but the best he can come up with is "Shhh, I'm watching it incognito to spy on those stupid libs!"
 
2013-01-30 11:22:25 AM  
There are plenty of red flags for conservatives, off-screen and on. Off-screen is the fact that Dunham is an Ivy League, wealthy, 26-year old New Yorker who has all the pretentions and prejudices in real life that one would expect from an Ivy League, wealthy, 26-year old New Yorker.

So the "Conservatives" problem is that she is rich but doesn't act like they want? Or is it that she is educated, or Ivy League educated?

William F. Buckley, Jr. (son of an Lawyer and Oil Baron) went to Yale, so did George W. Bush (he's from CT, not TX contrary to spin). Your populist anti-intellectualism tears like tissue paper when you look at the Conservative leaders.

The problem here is the reality bubble they live in is collapsing, and intelligent creative strong willed women are the goddamned boogie man.

Allison Williams should get naked, that's just a fact.

I find the show annoying and stupid at times, but this guy's reasons for hating the show are just dumb, and weird, and sad.

Conservatives nowadays are generally the dumbest morons in the room who eat shiat like Breitbart up as gospel.

I need to start my very own "Conservative" media outlet and cash in on the rubes.

If I was one of these "Hollywood is out to get us conservative" Breitbart potatoes, I would write the following article:

A Disturbing Trend in Hollywood Casting

i.ytimg.comencrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com
I recently noticed the most detestable villains coming out of Hollywood are blonde. You may think that this is just a coincidence, but trust me, nothing in movie production is ever an accident. From lighting to remove shadows, to the placement of cups on a restaurant table, everything is planned to the last detail.

So it is no surprise Hollywood is trying to make blonde hair synonymous with evil. It is the one trait uniquely European. Sure, Hollywood loves European style socialism, but they hate European Americans. Sorry, their powerful 'political correct' brainwashing just got the better of me. I mean whites. Hollywood hates whites.
...

Then I would continue with how whites are oppressed while blowing dog-whistles the whole time, and if you point out I'm being a paranoid racist, that means you're the real paranoid racist.

That's pretty much the MO for half of Breitbart movie reviews.

Like the closest town is famous for catching it's river on fire and that's 40 miles away, gets to 20° below in winter, and Amish buggies and tractors are just outside the town which is smaller than most high schools. -- that Ivy League

Yes, conservatives, you need to take the reins of popular entertainment!

Bring us more of that new-fangled music the kids like, the way Ted Nugent does. Give us more comedy from people like Dennis Miller, a guy so funny that I have to think for a while to get the joke. Bring us more genius acting from that handsome young Kirk Cameron.

Hollywood will be putty in your unsoiled, virgin hands

m00: Considering every female character in the show is a completely awful person, obsessed with their own self-worth and incapable of reconciling their "me" centric dream-world with adult reality -- I would say it's a very accurate critique of women and feminism in general.


so they're Ayn Rand worshiping Republicans then?

I love how the knee jerk conservative response to Girls is to make fun of how Lena Dunham looks naked. Dough-faced patriot bloggers have really high standards for women, apparently.

It's all Ivy League when you get your media reviews from "conservative" outlets like Brietbart.
 
2013-01-30 11:51:06 AM  
This is an interesting discussion, from a feminist perspective. Women portrayed as flawed, selfish individuals, behaving similarly to men in terms of sexual habits and sharing the same variation of body types portrayed on nearly every other sitcom. That there is outrage against it from moralizing people shows how badly skewed gender relations are when you look at what is allowed from guys as main characters in terms of what they look like and what they do compared to girls.

I'm still fascinated by the dichotomy of "Why doesn't this show have any moral values or religion?" and "Why won't the hot one show her tits?" in the same story. It's a disconnect, really.

I'm not sure where you are getting the knee jerk part, I mean, once you seen her naked you have basically got every possible piece of information you would ever need to determine that she has horrible, awful tattoos on pasty, flabby skin.

Didn't do any "jerking" that night. Yikes.

I don't think your standards have to be unnecessarily high or that you have to be necessarily have to be a conservative to find her unattractive.

I'm half kidding:

HBO has given us some awesome nudity......Entourage, Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, etc.  So they set their own standards kind of high, and then crash and burn with this show.

Side notes:

1) If you're a fan of premium cable nudity, check out "Magic City" on Starz.....all the girls are natural....and it's a well done show anyhow.

2) And HBO needs to bring back "The Life and Times of Tim", damn it!  (No nudity on that show, though.)
