“Girls” star and creator Lena Dunham has raised the eyebrows of many with her ad endorsing President Obama.
The endorsement video, released Thursday, features Dunham discussing her first time voting in support for Obama, which many say has an undertone of sexuality. Titled “Your First Time,” Dunham speaks to the camera and says: “The first time shouldn’t be with just anybody. You want to do it with a great guy. Someone who really cares about and understands women. You want to do it with a guy who brought the troops out of Iraq,” she says. “You don’t want a guy who says, ‘Oh hey, I’m at the library studying,’ when really he’s out not signing the Lilly Ledbetter act,” she adds, referring to legislation signed into law by President Obama.
She goes on to say “Or thinks that gay people should never have beautiful, complicated weddings like the kind we see on Bravo or TLC all the time,” she continues. “Think about how you want to spend those four years,” Dunham says. “In college age time, that’s 150 years.”
Dunham says the video is meant to get young voters interested in voting. Speaking in the video, she discusses various issues, including the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, and equal pay for women. She would later take to twitter to answers critics who complained about the ad. .
“The video may be light,” she wrote, “but the message is serious: vote for women’s rights,” wrote Dunham.
