(Sigh) I still love the girl but that is a hideous outfit in Leah Dunham, her stylist should be fired!
Seriously, that’s your response to this post? That Lena Dunham’s stylist should be fired?
I kind of can’t comprehend that level of point-missing. This is a post about how absurd and fuckawful it is that women are judged every moment of every day on what they choose to wear rather than any other facet of their being, and your response is ‘that outfit is hideous, her stylist (she of course has a stylist who is in charge of what clothing she is allowed to wear a every waking moment, and she should be dressed at every waking moment as if she expects to be photographed and criticized on her apparel, comfort or utility of clothing must always, ALWAYS come second that that, how dare her stylist allow her to leave the house that way, etc) should be fired’.
That’s some epic-level point-missing.
I mean, I DON’T love the girl (see: http://yourfaveisproblematic.tumblr.com/post/45822118430/lena-dunham ) but I still recognize that it is fucking unacceptable that there should be an article that centers on the shorts she chose to put on rather than on her words and actions as a human being.

"Don’t romanticize your disability/illness," often seems to mean, "Be properly ashamed of yourself, lie and suppress, it can’t possibly be doing more damage bottled up inside, don’t make me think about what you go through."
When Van Gogh was a young man in his early twenties, he was in London studying to be a clergyman. He had no thought of being an artist at all. he sat in his cheap little room writing a letter to his younger brother in Holland, whom he loved very much. He looked out his window at a watery twilight, a thin lamppost, a star, and he said in his letter something like this: “it is so beautiful I must show you how it looks.” And then on his cheap ruled note paper, he made the most beautiful, tender, little drawing of it.
When I read this letter of Van Gogh’s it comforted me very much and seemed to throw a clear light on the whole road of Art. Before, I thought that to produce a work of painting or literature, you scowled and thought long and ponderously and weighed everything solemnly and learned everything that all artists had ever done aforetime, and what their influences and schools were, and you were extremely careful about *design* and *balance* and getting *interesting planes* into your painting, and avoided, with the most astringent severity, showing the faintest *academical* tendency, and were strictly modern. And so on and so on.
But the moment I read Van Gogh’s letter I knew what art was, and the creative impulse. It is a feeling of love and enthusiasm for something, and in a direct, simple, passionate and true way, you try to show this beauty in things to others, by drawing it.
And Van Gogh’s little drawing on the cheap note paper was a work of art because he loved the sky and the frail lamppost against it so seriously that he made the drawing with the most exquisite conscientiousness and care.

So if we have to show women what the baby looks like in their womb and tell them how the process works before allowing them to get an abortion, does that mean we should teach our soldiers about the culture of the lands we’re invading, and explain to them that the people we want them to kill have families and feel pain, just like Americans?
