If you haven’t had a chance to keep up with the feminist blogosphere in the last week (because you were, say, reading Pinkalicious for the 27th time), you might have missed the sh*t show that went down when Lena Dunham graced the cover of Vogue.
The actress and creator of the insanely popular HBO series Girls is often at the center of discussions about body image and Hollywood, as she openly (and very, very frequently) shows her naked body on TV in all its imperfect glory. But when her issue of Vogue came out featuring a spread of photos clearly Photoshopped (as Vogue and all other fashion magazines are wont to do), feminist website Jezebel put out a $10,000 bounty for the unretouched pictures of Dunham from the shoot.
And this upset a lot of people. Because, what, really, was the point?

All the Jewish celebrity parent gossip you (n)ever wanted to know.
– The Golden Globes were this week, and we feel comfortable mentioning that because they were chock full of celebrity Jewish parents and children, like Lena Dunham (has a Jewish mom), Daniel Day-Lewis (has a Jewish mom), Kate Hudson (has/is a Jewish mom), and Isla Fisher and Sasha Baron Cohen (both Jewish). And, of course, Mayim Bialik. (Everywhere, but there’s a good slideshow on NY Times)
– Sarah Jessica Parker was out and about with Loretta and Tabitha, both looking very cute. But the best part about this post is the commenter whose username is TabithaFan21. Tabitha has fans but Loretta doesn’t?? #Lorettaforever (Celebrity Baby Scoop)
– Drew Barrymore bravely flew with her 3-month-old daughter, Olive. Do you think people are nasty to celebrities who bring their kids on planes, or does that just happen to us regular folk? (US Weekly)
– Rachel Zoe and Skyler were spotted wearing matching stripes on Monday. I think Skyler looks better than Rachel here, and I’m not sure how I feel about that. (Daily Mail)
