“I don’t get the purpose of all the nudity on the show. By you particularly. I feel like I’m walking into a trap where you say no one complains about the nudity on ‘Game of Thrones,’ but I get why they’re doing it. They’re doing it to be salacious. To titillate people. And your character is often naked at random times for no reason”
– TV critic, Tim Molloy, questioning Lena Dunham at TV Critics Association panel
A TV reporter had the nerve to ask the mighty Lena Dunham why she’s naked so much on her own TV show which I guess he’s forced to watch as part of his job. The response was a Vassar Womyn’s club litany of feminist knee jerkism by Dunham and her fellow show producers. Dunham defended her omnipresent bare Weebles body with the intellectual profundity of a seven-year old:
It’s because it’s a realistic expression of what it’s like to be alive, I think, and I totally get it. If you are not into me, that’s your problem.
Oh, fuck, coming soon, Lena Dunham taking a post-Sbarro dump on camera. The last thing we need from Lena Dunham is more honest portrayals of human existence in all its grit.
Girls producer Jenni Konner asked Tim Molloy why he thought he even had the right to talk to a woman like that. What? Asking Dunham why she was so obviously infatuated with being naked on camera. She shows her IHOPs on camera more than any other actress on television. It’s her own show. She’s not being pushed by some ratings hungry producer to flash her saggy bags. She’s insisting on it.
Judd Apatow worked overtime to make himself the biggest ass of the session, jumping to defend Lena’s feminist integrity, He told Molloy that even asking why Lena she was naked so much on Girls was sexist, offensive, and misogynistic, using all three buzz words to make sure everybody was clear that he liked to use big words without any real thought behind them. Maybe he was just trying to ensure another round of awards from Hollywood or just score point so that his wife wouldn’t make him sleep in the dog bed tonight.
Apatow then asked Molloy if he had a girlfriend and if she is happy knowing that her boyfriend is a sexist offensive misogynist who almost made Lena Dunham squirt onion ring grease out of her eyes. Apatow asked the TV critic to re-examine his Cro-magnon ways and only come back when he too has a soft-chinned pussy beard that reflexively quivers in fear around women. Then everybody stopped talking for a minute to gather themselves in their shells of self-importance waiting for some chick from People magazine or E! to ask a softball question.
I really need to hit something.
