Lena Dunham now thinks of herself as "body tolerant"
Dunham is always open with fans about her struggles in posts on her social media pages and shared a picture of herself in black lingerie on her Instagram page on March 10, reports aceshowbiz.com.
In her lengthy caption alongside the selfie, Dunham told her followers that while it's been a long journey, she now feels happy to call herself body tolerant -- as opposed to body positive.
She said: "I've never called myself 'body positive' because my relationship with my curves and scars isn't overtly political -- it's wildly personal. And it isn't always positive. I take enormous comfort in the body positivity movement, but I think of myself as something more like 'body tolerant'.
"With a chronic disease (or three), it's impossible not to resent your body sometimes. But we are no longer in an on-and-off toxic romance. We are also not monogamous. I drift toward her and away from her, trying hard to remember that, no matter how I fight it, she is me. I am her. We only have each other, so we gotta stick together."
Explaining her outfit choice, Dunham, who suffers from painful gynaecological disorder endometriosis, said: "And sometimes that means a little lace to remind her I care. To other people living with #endometriosis, I've learned more from you than I can even explain... #EndometriosisAwarenessMonth."
