Girls creator Lena Dunham released a campaign ad for Barack Obama that playfully compared voting for the first time to losing your virginity and the conservatives who would rather pretend sex doesn’t exist and shove it in a corner like it’s a haunted ventriloquist doll predictably hated it.
“It tickles me to no end that while my twitter feed was blowing up with conservative hate,” Dunham wrote on Twitter. “I was literally hanging out in a pile of bisexuals.”
The most outrageous response to the video came from Ben Shapiro of BigGovernment.com, who said that Obama is exploiting young women.
“Obama has young daughters. But that didn’t stop him from releasing this commercial. Because this is what Obama thinks of your daughters,” Shapiro seethed.
It was also mentioned that Dunham is “mocking virgins” with the line “No, I didn’t vote, I wasn’t ready.”
“It is offensive, repulsive and should be removed immediately,” Tennessee Rep. Marsha Blackburn wrote in an open letter on RedState.com, wondering how the ad could have been approved.
