If You Hate HBO's 'Girls', You're Missing the Point

Girls, which just began its third season, is often criticized for indulging privileged people's problems. But the show actually critiques first-world entitlement.

Vogue Only Likes Lena Dunham From the Neck Up

When Lena Dunham's Vogue cover was released on Wednesday, I couldn't hide my disappointment. There was Lena, looking beautiful but we didn't get to see if she was wearing pants or a skirt or maybe even shorts --- or nothing at all! -- because the editors decided to use a close-up shot of the Girls actress. My problem with Lena's Vogue cover, Mindy's Elle cover and all the others is this: Continually refusing to show an average woman's body on the cover of fashion magazines sets a dangerous precedent for future covers. It gives off a mixed message: Yes, we want cool, smart, funny gals on our covers but their bodies aren't good enough to show off.
