I'll never forget that first Sunday when I turned on HBO and found a hidden gem that was GIRLS.
Finally, a show for a girl like me, which was coincidental, because the show was in fact called GIRLS. As a journalist, I approach everything with a unique, challenging perspective. But after a few minutes of the quirky, realistic dialogue of Lena Dunham's beautiful characters in her realistic world of Girls, I was hooked.
I even set my DVR. I watched religiously every week. A lot of people said that those girls were cunty racist bitches, but in a way, ALL white girls ARE cunty racist bitches who just want to get their pussies slammed, but also find meaning behind that process. That's why I love GIRLS, and Lena, for telling the TRUTH.
And now, its all over. Lena Dunham has quit Girls to pursue more challenges. Some say it was over money, others say it was for more creative control. Knowing Lena, she probably has a brilliant new project lined up.
That's what makes Lena special. Women have few opportunities to have their opinions heard in this world where Mad Men celebrates hate sex, and Breaking Bad is about cooking meth and killing people. Girls was a place where we could talk about having sex with guys, and the emotions that go behind casual hookups.
I was dating this guy, and he would only come over after 11 pm, then he told me he liked to choke girls out, and it got him off, so I let him do it, but I didn't really like it that much, but I still thought it was hot. He told me he had mommy issues. Out of nowhere, he told me that he didn't think we should have sex any more, and I was totally pissed because he was the first guy who ever came inside of me. I had to go to a women's clinic, and thought I was pregnant because I my nuvaring was sliding out of my snatch, but it turned out I just had some diseases, and I was PISSED that he rawdogged me when he had chlamydia, but I guess I should have been able to tell because of the green discharge.
Plus I hate my friends and love them at the same time, like all GIRLS.
But that's why Lena is brilliant. Real stories for real women like me. I feel like I'm just a girl sometimes. UGh what do I want to do with my career? I have this voice, just like Lena, but I need to make things happen. I just want to love my body more, like Lena.
Lena Dunham: Gone too soon. She really told the truth about spoiled white bitches who think that their shit doesn't stink and expect bros to worship their vaginas that they will give to any random bro who tells them that they are pretty or interesting. Sigh...
This is the worst news ever. What am I gonna do on Sunday night now?
Lena Dunham: 1979-2012. Goodnite.
