My Problem with Lena Dunham and Girls

A television show about 20-something women, a few years removed from college, trying to “make it” in the real world? Sounds like a show that was made for me, expect it wasn’t. Lena Dunham’s HBO show Girls is not a representation of me.

I’m not a fan of Lena Dunham, I said and skirted by the topic after she mentioned how relatable Dunham is. Without wanting to start a deep discussion which would probably make everyone uncomfortable, I kept quiet. ┬áThere is so much I could have said, but decided to keep it to myself (well, to my blog, because here you are reading this).
