Lena Dunham Bears It All - Entertainment - The Atlantic Wire http://www.theatlanticwire.com/entertainment/2013/02/girls-nudity/62053/
”Breasts, in their objectification and just-shy-of-truly-indecent cultural status, don’t really have a male counterpart.) But the point is that even if we’re up on the nudity — yay for diverse body shapes shown in popular media (popular being a relative term for a show that about 0.5% of America watches), yay for women characters demonstrating full and thorough and complex sex lives — we’re still talking about the damn nudity. In that sense maybe that angry Facebook fellow is right. It is a distraction. Though that distraction isn’t Dunham’s fault, it’s ours.”
I hold similar sentiments.
All I have ever read about Girls focuses on Lena Dunham’s appearances in the nude.
I have no idea if the show is good or not, or even really what it’s about. All I know is that she gets naked and isn’t shy about it, and that her body is closer to the average woman’s than most people on TV.
Which is great, and to be applauded.
But maybe if we stopped getting so focused on the nudity and just accepted it as normal, that would be even better.
