Truthfully, Lena Dunham's brand of white feminism can be, at best, irritating — but her latest Instagram post is actually relatable AF.
On Tuesday, January 3, Dunham shared her recent Glamour cover with her co-stars of the hit HBO series "Girls," which is coming up on its final season.
Aside from colorful Marc Jacobs threads and '70s pumps, the cover also featured her glorious, cellulite-ridden thigh without a touch of Photoshop.
And while many were so excited to see an unretouched photo, plenty of trolls took the time to come at Dunham's appearance.
So Dunham fired back with a heartfelt, sincere point about loving the skin she's in:
Okay, here goes: Throughout my teens I was told, in no uncertain terms, that I was fucking funny looking. Potbelly, rabbit teeth, knock knees — I could never seem to get it right and it haunted my every move. I posed as the sassy confident one, secretly horrified and hurt by careless comments and hostility. Let's get something straight: I didn't hate what I looked like — I hated the culture that was telling me to hate it. When my career started, some people celebrated my look but always through the lens of "isn't she brave? Isn't it such a bold move to show THAT body on TV?" Then there were the legions of trolls who made high-school teasing look like a damned joke with the violent threats they heaped on, the sickening insults that made me ache for teen girls like me who might be reading my comments.
She then went on to let this epic truth bomb drop:
Whether you agree with my politics, like my show, or connect to what I do, it doesn't matter — my body isn't fair game. No one's is, no matter their size, color, gender identity, and there's a place for us all in popular culture to be recognized as beautiful. Haters are gonna have to get more intellectual and creative with their disses in 2017 because none of us are going to be scared into muumuus by faceless basement dwellers, or cruel blogs, or even our partners and friends. Thank you to the women in Hollywood (and on Instagram!) leading the way, inspiring and normalizing the female form in EVERY form, and thank you to @glamourmag for letting my cellulite do the damn thing on news stands everywhere today <3 Love you all.
No matter what your stance is on Dunham, you can't argue that!
Thanks for living your body-positive truth!
