Lena Dunham, whose HBO show, Girls, kicked off its third season on Sunday with two episodes clearly designed to provoke controversy by featuring women who speak words aloud, is now set to appear on the cover of Vogue. The cover photo, taken by Annie Leibovitz, features only the face of Dunham, a not-so-subtle suggestion that A) Dunham’s body doesn’t rate for the cover of Vogue, or B) Leibovitz is attempting to court controversy by intentionally using a non-controversial photo.
In either respect, I think we can all agree that the polka dots are gratuitous and offensive, and that they do not service the photo, and that it is imperative that we express our opinions about them, whether those opinions are well-formed or not. More importantly, we must all line up and announce to the world whether we would hit that or if we would not bang, and then all agree on the that we would totally tap Marnie’s ass, regardless of our opinions about Girls, the TV show.
We must also react in a knee jerk fashion to the suggestion on the cover that Lena Dunham is the “New Queen of Comedy,” with one of the following statements (please circle your choice):
A. How can she be the queen of Comedy if no one watches her show?
B. Just because I don’t like the show doesn’t make me a sexist. I just don’t think Dunham is funny.
C. Why isn’t Allison Williams naked as often as Lena Dunham is?
D. Why is this show called Girls if the only interesting people on it are the boys?
E. I have a boner the size of [insert metaphor]
F. Misunderstand the intent of this post and call me a jerk/douche/asshole
