Lena Dunham on Being a Young Female: “There’s so Much Torture”

Too far? Lena says being a young twenty-something is "torture".

T he ‘Girls’ creator has commented that young women are often tortured and it’s what inspired her tv show. She explained:

“When we were turning 24, one of my best friends said, ‘I hate this. We will never be considered precocious again.’ But I was like, ‘I don’t want to be precocious. I just want to be a person who’s in my life.’ There’s so much torture that come with being young, female, and trying to figure it out. I mean, I made a whole TV show about it.”

Lena also says that she has a love/hate relationship with the internet, because on one hand it has helped her discover so much and on another, it has exposed her to so much hate and backlash over the years. She reveals that she has been saddened by much of what she has seen:

“I’ve been put to bed for weeks from reading things about myself on sites that used to be considered feminist gospel. I love the Internet because it helped me discover everything that matters to me. But I also hate the internet because every piece of true pain I’ve experienced as an adult – with the exception of death in the family and breakups – has come from it.”

Lena says she only ever wants to make people feel good about themselves and help with important issues:

“To spread positivity. I know I’m not most moms’ idea of a role model, but I try to use the attention that comes with that wisely and not foolishly. Yes, I will tweet about my issues with underpants, but I also want to say things that matter.”
