I've called myself many things in public - a binge eater, an addict, a perfectionist, a workaholic, to name but a few - but I've never called myself a feminist. It's only now that I'm starting to wonder why.
With a show creating so many differing opinions you would think that what you are watching is something radically different, especially for American television. Well behind the cameras it is, but unfortunately on screen it's just more of the same.
Girls features an exclusively white cast both in terms of its main characters and its peripheral ones, and this has been a source of much condemnation. But instead of criticising Girls and Lena Dunham, its writer, we should really criticise ourselves.
Whilst Dunham is undoubtedly talented - her multiple credits on the show vouch for that - it is hard to see her as some sort of creative genius. She is simply a young woman who has written a somewhat autobiographical show that is funny and is receiving praise.
