Girls are trained to say, ‘I wrote this, but it’s probably really stupid.’ Well, no, you wouldn’t write a novel if you thought it was really stupid. Men are much more comfortable going, ‘I wrote this book because I have a unique perspective that the world needs to hear.’ Girls are taught from the age of seven that if you get a compliment, you don’t go, ‘Thank you’, you go, ‘No, you’re insane.’
Lena Dunham (x)
Why I love her and why you should too.
* * * Had to go Google Lena Dunham because I didn’t know who she was. Sorry! Don’t have cable or satellite television and any “news blurbs” that I may happen to hear do not keep me well informed or in the know!
Is this a quote from a TV show or a movie?? Can’t be real life. At least, it’s not what happened in my real life. I was never trained like that! (???) Didn’t train my daughters that way neither! When someone compliments my daughter she knows to say “Thank you”. When did the etiquette rules change?
