Continuing a hot streak of idiotic statements unparalleled by anyone other than perhaps our President-elect (very curious as to who holds the record), Lena Dunham said yesterday on the Women of the Hour podcast, “Now I can say that I still haven’t had an abortion, but I wish I had.”
Apparently Dunham thinks that the only way to fight the ridiculous stigma surrounding abortion is to get one herself. Rather than dissect the statement, here are a few favorite tweets from all the times Dunham has said something absurd in public (we can be angry, but hey, at least we can laugh):
This one isn’t so much a dig at Lena Dunham, but I felt it necessary to include Kaleb Horton’s excellent trolling of conservative twitter . (People sincerely believed that the Thornstein Veblen [a sociologist and economist who was highly critical of capitalism] excerpt was done by Dunham.)
Now that we’ve all laughed and fumed a bit, let’s return to news that matters.
