Kim Kardashian's decision to flaunt her body and pose nude has raised a lot of eyebrows, but it's also earned her praise. Because while some people find Kardashian's actions to be distasteful, others feel that they promote body positivity — and Kardashian has a big fan in Lena Dunham.

Speaking during an interview for the Power Women Breakfast series hosted by TheWrap, Dunham applauded the Kardashian family and reminded us all that we shouldn't be so quick to judge.

"I love the Kardashians — I love to look at them," Dunham said, adding, "I'm all about it."

"Every version of being female and feeling powerful is fucking great with me," she continued. "I don't have a problem with it."

Dunham is an activist for female rights, and she was more than willing to broach the topic of Kim Kardashian's nude selfie (the one where she posed nude, aside from censor bars covering her intimate parts). Kardashian's decision caused uproar and resulted in harsh backlash, but Dunham thinks it did something important: It created a dialogue.

"I think that's a big part of the problem with the feminist dialogue on the internet right now is, like, why are we screaming at each other?" Dunham said.

"I don't think there are important conversations to be had about, like, whether Kim Kardashian's nude selfie is like negatively affecting me or my child." Expanding on this thought, she explained that while she doesn't have a child herself, she feels that a lot of arguments are from concerned parents who make comments such as, "I don't want my daughter growing up in this world."

But Dunham's views are very different, as she explained, "I'm, like, 'I want my daughter growing up in a world where there's, like, a million options about what's OK to do and how it's OK to look.'"
