There have been a lot of complaints about this episode (Example - this review on Slate). Men are complaining that it's unrealistic. But you know what I have to say to those men? "SHUT UP. SHUT UP SHUTUPSHUTUP. Just because Hannah does not look like Mila Kunis (Or some other skinny, hot lady), doesn't mean she can't pull some mad tail. LOOK AT MEN. UGLY MEN GOT HOT LADIES ALL THE TIME IN FICTION AND YOU ALL THINK THAT'S BELIEVABLE."
We can all complain about Girls. There are a lot of problems with the show. We can all agree on that, but the problem doesn't have anything to do with Lena's body.
I personally like that she's not ashamed of herself. Not everyone looks like Allison Williams. I know I don't. Seeing how comfortable Lena is on screen makes me more comfortable with myself. And despite EVERYTHING ELSE WRONG with that show, that's a pretty awesome thing.
And was she really rude to him? NO. Yeah, it got a little awkward when she asked him to beg her to stay, but GOOD FOR HER. Why don't the rest of us act assertive like this? And the sex scene - women act like that during actual sex and are not perceived as "rude" by their partners.
So for a moment, forget that you hate Girls because it's racist and exclusive.
And let's just think about how it's totally believable for a hot guy to be attracted to her.
And how MUCH MEN SUCK.

What did you think about this week's Girls? And, sorry I'm not sorry for ranting.
