Itâ€™s not every day in the TV world of anorexic actresses with fake boobs that a woman with giant thighs, a sloppy backside and small breasts is compelled to show it all. Itâ€™s a boon for the out-of-shape, and perhaps a giant economic loss for high-end gyms, especially in Brooklyn…
This season, Hannah has grown a pair, sort of, and is no longer the sex slave of the slob slacker. In fact, Adam as well as another man are now obsessed with her and canâ€™t get enough of her blobby body.
Look, I don’t really require a lot of political correctness in writing. And I think Girls perpetuates the myth that there’s something free-wheeling and exciting about being a woman child, when, really, it is pretty exciting to be able to do stuff competently (this is my way of saying I will watch for Marnie but only Marnie who I think I could have nice dinners with, which we could cook).
So, what I’m saying is that there are, to my mind, a lot of flaws with Girls. But none of them are a result of Lena Dunham’s “blobby body.”
Her body is fine. Her body is a perfectly acceptable body type and indicating that a woman with Lena Dunham’s body ought to make her undesirable – or for that matter, that slimmer actresses are anorexic – is just ridiculous.
Good. Glad we cleared that up. I will resume watching Downton Abbey over and over.
