Lena Dunham and SNL Show Feminism in a Biblical Context

Posted By on March 14, 2014

Whoops, putting a modern day feminist in the garden of Eden doesn’t work so well.

Dunham asks Killam if they are man and wife, to which Killam replies: “You’re like a part of me, literally. God made you from my rib, kid.”

Dunham responds by telling Killam his comments are “sexist,” adding that he should “take a gender and women’s studies class.'” When Dunham later eats the apple in the Garden of Eden, thus committing original sin, she asks God to stop shaming her into feeling guilty for her transgression.

“Can you please not apple-shame me right now? Seriously, I know I committed original sin but at least it’s original, I think I deserve some credit for that.” When Killam asks Dunham if she’s going to put on fig leaves to cover herself after committing original sin, Dunham replies, “I don’t see why that’s necessary at all. I’m not going to conform to society’s demands for me.”
