Lena Dunham posted a photo of herself in lingerie because she’s super body positive. Also, because she’s being paid by a lingerie company. It’s long been Dunham’s dream to make one million men taste the remnants of the grilled cheese sandwich they never quite digested in the fourth grade. That part of the Internet where girls equate showing off your fat naked body on Instagram to the Montgomery Bus Boycott went into a tizzy:
Lena Dunham’s lingerie photo is her latest body posi effort on social media, and power to the writer and actress for once again being badass and fearless when it comes to showing off her body… Dunham wore a pistachio green, lacy set from Lonely Lingerie, a company who makes “intimates for ladies who view lingerie as a love letter to themselves,” as opposed to, say, being something solely utilized to entice a lover. Can we veer off topic for a second for me to say that I’m in lurve? What a refreshing concept! — Amy Sciaretto, Bustle.com
Power to Lena. Not the power to lay off the carbs or the power to resist burning an innocent dude in your book with implied rape allegations, but the power to not entice a lover with this lingerie. I’d have to call this a success. Amy Sciaretto might be in lurv, but your visual love letter to yourself just cost me a decent erection for the next ninety-six hours. I’m sending you a copy of The Feminine Mystique and a poncho. I call truce.
