Lena Dunham: “Tak for at vise min appelsinhud!”

Få kan måle sig med seje Lena Dunham. Girls-stjernen takker magasinet Glamour for at skippe Photoshop og lade appelsinhuden stråle på forsiden

Lena Dunham står ved sine holdninger og er stolt af sin krop. Girls-stjernen har gennem hele sin karriere været bannerfører for et nyt kvindeideal, hvor feminisme og naturlige former er i højsædet.

Derfor har Lena tidligere været ude med riven, når hun ufrivilligt er kommet under Photoshop-kniven for at matche modemagasiners skønhedsideal.

Glamour Magazine er tilsyneladende bekendt med Lenas had til Photoshop. Sammen med resten af Girls-castet pryder hun magasinets februarnummer, og forsiden fremstår umiddelbart Photoshop-fri.

Det fik Lena Dunham til at skrive en inspirerende Instagram-post, hvori hun takker Glamour for ikke at redigere små skønhedsfejl som appelsinhud. 

“Gennem alle mine teenageår fik jeg at vide, i utvetydige vendinger, at jeg så f**king sjov ud. Topmave, kanintænder, hjulbenet – jeg lykkedes aldrig med at gøre det rigtige, og det hjemsøgte mig hele tiden. Jeg lod som om, jeg var selvsikker, men egentlig var jeg skræmt og såret af skødesløse kommentarer og fjendtlighed,” skriver Girls-stjernen blandt andet og tilføjer, at hun altså ikke skammede sig over sig udseende, men over den kultur, der dikterede, at hun så forkert ud.

Dunham skriver endvidere, at folk gennem hendes karriere har “hyldet [hendes] udseende, men altid gennem linsen ‘er hun ikke modig? Er det ikke et modigt træk at vise DEN krop på tv?'”. 

Nu er det blevet Lenas tur til at hylde, og hun hylder den nye Glamour-forside, der viser hende præcis, som hun er. Læs hele Lenas opslag her: 

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. Well, today this body is on the cover of a magazine that millions of women will read, without photoshop, my thigh on full imperfect display. 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 ❤️ Love you all.
