Lena Dunham on That Sexist Two and a Half Men Producer

Remember Two and a Half Men co-creator Lee Aronsohn, who complained that the influx of female-skewed shows on television had us reaching a dangerous point of "labia saturation"? (Oh, you had blocked this from your mind? Sorry 'bout that.) Girls creator Lena Dunham remembers, and she's still reeling from his bold anti-humor. "It's such an assholic thing to say. It's so dickish," Dunham tells HuffPo. "I felt especially bad for him because it's not even a funny joke. If you had a good quip, I'd be like, 'Well, you're a dick, but at least you're a good comedy writer.' But with that, I was like, 'Come on, dude. Labia saturation point?'" Added Dunham, "I almost wanted to do a tweet, but I didn't do it: 'Since we've reached our labia saturation point on television, I've decided not to release Girls.' Like, 'HBO's behind me on this decision and we're so sorry for anybody we're disappointing, but we really can't over-vagina the TV.' Lee has spoken." Fortunately, it's not TV: It's just over-vagina'd HBO.
