From Deborah C. Tyler’s Lena Dunham and the Banality of the Disgusting today in AT read the full piece here.
Dunham has exploited her ability to be impishly disgusting all of her life. It is her only talent. She works it unrelentlingly. That which many people find cruel or repellent Dunham celebrates as trendy, sexy newsiness. She claps and coos at a PP clinic as if she is at a festive occasion, because she is. Doctors who save lives are not her heroes. She idolizes abortionists because unconsciously, she wishes to share in the sexiest power of all – to kill human beings.
