Unsurprisingly, Lena Dunham (porn name: Murray Broadway) isn’t super stoked that Hustler is producing a porn parody of her TV show, Girls. Yesterday morning, Dunham tweeted that she wished “she had a better attitude about” the parody, saying she “really can never predict what will trouble” her. Then, last night, she tweeted three reasons why the parody specifically troubles her, all of which seem totally valid:
"1. Because Girls is, at its core, a feminist action while Hustler is a company that markets and monetizes a male's idea of female sexuality
2. Because a big reason I engage in (simulated) onscreen sex is to counteract a skewed idea of that act created by the proliferation of porn
3. Because it grosses me out."
While that third reason is a scoch underdeveloped, the first two are certainly valid feminist arguments, in addition to being great “fuck yous” to everyone who groused about Girls already being porn following yesterday’s news. Maybe if more porn looked like Girls then there wouldn’t have to be a Girls porn parody. Or maybe it would still exist, just to fill the world with shitty dialog and candy ball gags.
