Most people don’t care what Golden-Globe-winning 27-year-old Lena Dunham, the creator of HBO’s hit show Girls, says or does. However, in an attempt to understand a liberal’s approach to life, any opportunity a conservative gets to study how those on the left think is an opportunity to grow in both knowledge and discernment.
One woman who never disappoints when it comes to providing insight into how irrational, disingenuous, and baffling liberal thinking and behavior are is the deliberately ordinary Barack Obama sycophant, Lena Dunham.
Actor/television and film director/ screenwriter/television producer Lena acts up every chance she gets and does it by pretending eccentric behavior is the norm. Lena is so good at acting up, she’s earned $10 million doing it.
In a recent interview, Ms. Dunham told Glamour magazine, “I don’t know if I’m going to want to act anymore. I’m always relieved on the days I don’t have to,” which explains why Lena stars in her own HBO show.
Ms. Dunham, who prides herself on being unglamorous, told Glamour magazine, “I’d rather give parts to other women than be the woman having the parts.”
Based on her “parts” usually being in a brazen state of undress, maybe what Lena really meant to say was that she’d rather be the woman “exposing her girly parts.” Or maybe not, because the title of the article is “Girls‘ Lena Dunham: Why she’s OVER talking about her body.”
To the liberal mindset, Lena saying she’s “OVER talking about her body” doesn’t mean she’s “OVER” exposing her body. Clearly a committed exhibitionist, Lena just doesn’t want anyone noticing she’s naked, and although she plans on continuing to be naked doesn’t want to talk about being naked anymore.
After announcing she was done with acting and talking about being in the buff, Lena hosted SNL, where she starred in an “Adam and Eve” sketch that overlaid a Girls attitude on the Genesis story in which Lena (playing an unclothed Eve, of course), didn’t squander the chance to call attention to, you guessed it – her naked physique, such as it is.
Despite what she says, liberal Lena bares her anatomy with predictable regularity. She maintains that her unembellished butt depicts real life, because as Lena explains, “it’s a realistic expression of what it’s like to be alive.”
In Lena’s case, maybe she identifies with nudity so much because her parents are Laurie Simmons, a photographer/artist, and Carroll Dunham, also an artist, both of whose artwork fixates on women, female mannequins, mammary glands, and gargantuan cartoonish genitals.
Artists Carroll and Laurie create art that features explicit renderings of women in provocative poses. Their progeny bypasses all that, strips down herself, strikes awkwardly provocative poses, and calls it art.
Lena’s parents must believe that over-sexualized art exhibits convey the message that nude women, mammary glands, and shockingly gargantuan cartoonish genitals should be seen as unremarkable, which may be why Lena is now trying to convince America that all her gratuitous nudity is really very boring.
As is always the case with liberals, especially Hollywood liberals, things can get confusing.
For instance, Ms. Lena is a woman who has built a career typecasting herself as a girl who refuses to be typecast by daring people not to notice that she’s strutting around in her birthday suit.
Furthermore, because the career of Adam Driver, the male star of Girls, has exploded, Ms. Dunham is upset because she believes the female stars of Girls are being pigeonholed – as girls. If Lena didn’t want to be typecast as a “girl”, maybe she should have called her show something else.
Here’s an idea! Instead of threatening to quit acting, Ms. Dunham should put her funky shrunken girl clothes back on, take those ridiculous plastic baby-girl barrettes out of her hair, and maybe, just maybe, she’ll stop being typecast as a naked girl working hard to typecast herself as a frumpy girl who refuses to be typecast.
So, for today, Lena Dunham is the naked liberal poster child whose muddled view of the world lends valuable insight into how those currently in charge of America really think, or better yet, fail to think.
