Just giving you shit, Amy. Glad you are liking the show. Your husband sounds like my boyfriend. Likes to hate on the show; secretly watches parts of it.
I love this thread! I also feel like it has a double meaning.. I almost felt we should start a GIRLS thread but I think this works too!
Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death. - Albert Einstein
Music is a safe kind of high" - Jimi Hendrix
Music is the wine that fills the cup of silence. - Robert Fripp
Nothing separates the generations more than music. By the time a child is eight or nine, he has developed a passion for his own music that is even stronger than his passions for procrastination and weird clothes. - Bill Cosby
He told me the only character he likes is Shoshanna, but I think that is because he is attracted to her. I don't know for sure though. We've seen her on a lot of TV shows like United States of Tara and Parenthood.
I think it's funny that the Hannah character wears clothes all the time that are actually WRONG for her body type and just emphasize her problem areas. "WHY IS SHE WEARING THAT?" I keep thinking.
Apparently today is "No Panties Day". I'm pretty sure this is another holiday created by a man just like steak and BJ day, lol
Don't tell me you ladies missed Cake and Cunnilingus Day
I think you're on to something, but the recording of kicking men in the balls should be part of it, for comedic purposes.
My friend is in the same situation as some of you with no access to HBO/cable and being able to watch Girls. So I uploaded them to a youtube with the videos being private.

I'll try to add the rest this weekend and edit the post. Please don't share them widely or anything as I won't upload them again if they get taken down.

Very cool/thoughtful. Thank you for doing that.
Did any of you read the article in the July/August Atlantic, "Why Women Still Can’t Have It All"? What did you think?
Admittedly, I just skimmed it. But I don't think the emphasis needs to be on women having it all or not. No one can have it all. Powerful men are never described this way. If men have both a career and a family, its only because traditionally the man's role in the family is to have a career in the first place. In having a career, they fulfill their role in the family by providing for the family. Women can have this too, if they want. They can have a husband with a less demanding career who spends most of the time with the kids day to day, like this woman had. There is no person who can be super ambitious career wise and be that involved with their family. Like she says, it isn't built into the system. I don't think the system needs to change to accommodate women.
I'm not saying that it would be bad for more jobs to be flexible, just that I don't agree with the idea that women specifically are less capable of putting family issues aside, or that the change needs to come about because it's important for women's success.
i heard the lady who wrote it speak on NPR. i kind of felt like it was a "no duh" article. it's hard to spend time on a real career and have a close relationship with your family, no matter your gender. we've just accepted for so long as a society that men will be some sort of disatant disciplinarian after 5pm. well now women have the opportunity to do the same.
