Lena Dunham on that whole Vogue shit show:
"I think Jezebel can be really smart and funny, I think it's just once you've been attacked in that way it's hard to enjoy. They made such a monumental error in their approach to feminism. For me, it was like I just can't sort of be half-in. It felt gross. I didn't talk to the woman who did it directly, but I can't imagine the reaction made her feel particularly great. That much content. I'd lose my mind. I did have sympathy for that. But once they did post the un-retouched images of me that looked so similar…
I was kind of scared to see the un-retouched images of me, I was like, maybe I'm delusional and I don't look how I think I look. And it was like—they smoothed a line here, and shaved off a part my neck. It was the most minimal retouching. I felt completely respected by Vogue. I felt like, 'Thank you for removing the one line from my face, because I'm 27 years old and shouldn't have that there.'
Instead of going like, 'Hey, we kinda fucked up, these pictures aren't that retouched Lena, enjoy the Vogue spread that you've been excited about since you were eight years old,' they were like, 'She's not retouched, but she could've been.' It was this weird almost political maneuvering that I just had a lot of trouble respecting."
ETA: The funny part is Jezebel actually posted this yesterday... the interview at least... and didn't make a SINGLE mention of it!
