Lena Dunham Naked On TV – Now love Her!
Lena Dunham Naked – Should youn’t know her, Lena Dunham is the star and writer of an HBO television series called Girls. The show is only in its 2nd season, but went from zero to celebrity in about http://partnerpost.net .
The assumption of the show has been compared to Sex and the City, just this time the girls are 20-somethings and dealing with a considerably more tumultuous period of their lives as they attempt to transition into the “real world.” Yes, it looks like merely another chain about young, white, privileged girls, but you still ought to give it focus. Why?
Because Lena Dunham has an average-looking body and is not afraid to expose it, affirming to girls everywhere that it is acceptable to be typical and also NOT be embarrassed of your body!
And I do not mean average in a negative way. Average as in regular. Typical. Expected. Outside of the tiny percent of girls who are tall, wafer thin, cellulite-free, enormous-breasted and have no curves (otherwise known as the scantily clad girls who dominate the media, marketing, film, TV, etc).
Lena Dunham hasn’t been hiding her body as other “defective” girls do on TV. As her character Hannah, she is been becoming naked. The sex scenes provide lots of chance for nudity, but in the newest episode we also see her wearing a see-through mesh top in public. (And Hannah is not the only one getting naked.
In a season one episode, “The Crackcident,” there’s some shocking nudity when Shoshanna, another of the girls, ends up on a footpath in Brooklyn with no pants. Her nudity is never discussed then, or later in http://nudismhot.com . I suppose the writers are saying, “hey nakedness a part of life.” Since we all have nude bodies, it’s.)

But Lena Dunham’s nude scenes and naked body has generated some strong and affecting reactions from critics. Um, and somebody hates her for it? Dunham is a menace to the regular order of things, merely by being her real self.
She was also criticized for wearing this ensemble at an event in L.A.
“I ‘m anti-slacks.” -Lena Dunham (pictured right, with no trousers)
Dunham’s answer was: If Olivia Wilde had gone to a party in little short pants, she might have been on a ‘strange dressed list’ or been told her outfit was cute. I don’t think a girl with tiny thighs would have received such no-slacks interest. I think what it actually was ‘Why did you all get us look at your thighs?’ My answer is, get used to it because I am going to live to be 100, and I ‘m going to reveal my thighs every day till I die.”
Just by exhibiting her thighs, she is challenging the same answer to nudity that naturists cope with: “Ewww! I do not wanna see that!” A salon.com post about Girls’ casual nudity even quoted Nicky Hoffman of The Naturist Society about how nudism empowers girls.
It always appeared to me like a paradox that it is not difficult to walk the streets among average Americans and realize that most people aren’t hiding the superb skinny idealized body type under their clothes. And yet to be confronted with this fact will be to cause shock, controversy, and disgust. Maybe I simply underestimate the brainwashing done by the media and advertising sector.
But what’s amazing is the manner Lena responds to these attacks on her body. She doesn’t give a crap! She’s not dieting, not covering up and not apologizing for the way she appears.
Her body has created not just criticism, but also some truly excellent discussion around important questions – Why does nudity make folks feel disgust? What is wrong with showing an alternate body type on TV? Why does it have to mean anything?
Here are two quotations from articles that try to address these questions. In the first, Helen Charman suggests that people’s negative reaction to nudity comes from the “closeness” of seeing all the imperfections, but we have to start seeing bodies as something other than objects of beauty or sexual desire.
“Naked as We Came: What Lena Dunham’s Nudity Says About Us” by Helen Charman, Huffington Post
And a 2nd quote from “The Audacity of Lena Dunham, and Her Admirable Commitment to Making Us Look At Her Naked” by Lesley on xoJane
Truth is, we had all probably be a lot less neurotic about our own bodies if we could get used to seeing and accepting the natural variety in other people’s – without shame, and giving no fucks.”
We want more of Lena Dunham nude on TV! I trust she will keep getting naked and keep challenging the status quo. (We also clearly need more folks to attempt nudism, but we all know it is simpler to place a greater assortment of nude girls on TV than to get the audience themselves to attempt social nudity.)
