An Honor for a Young Woman
Two radical and malicious right wing blogs have labeled Lena Dunham’s ad promoting first time voters to cast their ballot for President Obama as “disgusting”, and accused the Presidents as seeing young women as “helpless and sex obsessed”.
“The Right Scoop”, and John Nolte, an editor at “Breitbart” are the authors of these comments.
Lena Dunham, who is the creator of the HBO show “The Girls”, says in the ad “your first time should be amazing”. Part of the ad follows: “Your first time shouldn’t be with just anybody. You want to do it with a great guy…Someone who cares about and understands women. A guy who cares about whether you get health care insurance, specifically, whether you get birth control.
The consequences are huge. You want to do it with a guy who brought the troops out of Iraq. You don’t want a guy who says, ‘Oh hey, I’m at the library studying,’ when really he’s out not signing the Lilly Ledbetter Act.”
Obviously the ad was not targeted at right wing bloggers, but what an honor that they took valuable liberal bashing time to single this bright young woman out. The ad has already had 275,000 viewers on YouTube, so it must be working. Congratulations Ms. Dunham. I’m proud of you for being a free thinker and not a lemming.
