Lena Dunham's Obama ad draws conservative outrage


Conservatives are outraged over Lena Dunham's campaign ad for President Barack Obama. Dunham, the star and creator of HBO's Girls, finds their anger amusing.

"It tickles me to no end that while my twitter feed was blowing up with conservative hate," she tweeted, "I was literally hanging out in a pile of bisexuals."

The ad, titled "My First Time," features Dunham talking directly into the camera and equating voting to sex.

"You want to do it with a great guy. It should be with a guy with beautiful … somebody who really cares about and understands women," she says in the ad. Here, see what the fuss is about:

Shockingly, liberals kind of dig it. The Obama campaign is working hard to revive young voter’s interest, which have waned since the 2008 election. This ad is part of that campaign to get voters moving and talking. But conservative critics find it offensive towards women. 

The ad "exploits [young women] for insane commercials comparing losing your virginity with voting. Obama has young daughters. But that didn't stop him from releasing this commercial. Because this is what Obama thinks of your daughters," id Shapiro, writing for the website. What do you think? Harmless or insulting?

Not insulting. Also, not important. What is, is the tendency behind mainstream fascists (in USpeak: 'conservatives') to view women as inferior to men.
