Dunham *applauded* T. Swift for her ability to grow and change in such a public way.

Applause for @taylorswift13's spot on definition of feminism (and NOT because she mentions me) http://t.co/0JiLTgBz3d

She's been my feminist role model for a long time. And I cannot fucking wait for her VMA performance.

When someone grows, changes and shows their vulnerability and evolution publicly... That's a gift they give to us that we should honor.
