Lena Dunham Will Dress as Planned Parenthood Doctor for Halloween

Lena Dunham just won Halloween.

In the age of costumes, a woman during Halloween finds herself looking at paltry options full of “sexy” this and “sexy” that costumes.

So when Lena Dunham reminisced about her past costumes and announced that she plans to dress up as a Planned Parenthood doctor in Tuesday’s Lenny Letter, the choice was met with enthusiastic support from her fans.

“I want to be accepted and to WIN BIG!” she wrote. “And this year, I think I may have finally nailed it. I’m going as something newsy, sexy, and cool: a Planned Parenthood doctor!”

That is newsy and sexy indeed. Also, look how cute she was as a kid:

PS – For god’s sake, don’t dress up as sexy Bernie Sanders!
