I'm so much more into Hannah Horvath than Olivia Pope, and this is why.

A woman who balances the trapeze of femininity, independence and sexuality comfortably in either stilettos or sweatpants must be the product of male fantasy.

“I will be the first black woman to be on "Girls," so that’s exciting for me.”

Or mine, or yours. But that doesn't mean people will stop offering unsolicited advice on how we should strive to 'improve' ourselves. Ugh.

For young women, and in New York especially, watching Girls is a requirement.

Vagina jokes don't make me laugh anymore. Sorry, Rebel Wilson.
girls
I squeal every time I see a comic I love on "Girls." Last week it was Amy Schumer. This week: Colin Quinn!

"She should have just said no," people say, placing the responsibility firmly on the woman involved -- but why? Why is the responsibility on her to say no instead of on the initiating partner to secure a yes?

I consider myself actively anti-racism, sexism, homophobia, etc., etc. When someone says something in my presence that is effectively “-ist” in any way, they are immediately put in check.

Lisa Lampanelli has been examined under a microscope around the Web in the past 24 hours. Now Pia Glenn asks her about the tweet that -- in her words -- came out of friendship and respect.

You'd think Dunham's character had won the lottery and transplanted the entire gang to Hawaii, not spent a couple of days banging a hot stranger

I find "Girls" more stressful than the stressiest episode of "Breaking Bad." Season 2 cranked it up another notch. This is a good thing.

Why are we so put out when allegedly "imperfect" women dare to not hide themselves in shame? Isn't it time to get the hell over ourselves?

I hate it when I make a feminist icon sad by telling her about my sex life. Sorry, Naomi. We really love you a lot.

Everyone’s favorite “This American Life” star on getting notes from Lena Dunham, what hanging out on the regs with Ira Glass is like and his ridiculously well-reviewed new movie “Sleepwalk With Me.”
girls
I thought, how could Lena do something so narrow, so exclusive? And then I actually watched the show.

If you had asked me in 2008 who would be end up being the famous one in the 12 -person screenwriting workshop I was enrolled in, I would have said "me."

I think people should be free to create the work that they want to make, but "Girls" was a big deal to me, and it was probably a big deal for a lot of you.
