It’s 8:30 p.m. I’ve been away from the computer for a few hours. I hop on Twitter to see what’s going down. I see tweets like this:
it is with a heavy heart that i must announce Lena Dunham is at it again— Patrick Monahan (@pattymo) December 20, 2016
Finally something both liberals and conservatives can agree on.— Nick Jack Pappas (@Pappiness) December 20, 2016
We're all sick of Lena Dunham.
One day people are going to look at Lena Dunham and wonder why. Just why.— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) December 21, 2016
I want someone to put Max Landis and Lena Dunham in the Thunderdome and let God (aka Tina Turner) sort 'em out. pic.twitter.com/6aPrKNmPAG— Adam Frazier (@AdamFrazier) December 20, 2016
It's time to pay Lena Dunham to support the Trump agenda so everyone else will turn against it.— Kashana (@kashanacauley) December 20, 2016
Every time I think Lena Dunham can't get more disgusting she literally proves me wrong— NANA JIBRIL 🌙 (@girlswithtoys) December 20, 2016
My first thought is, GOD. What is Twitter getting so outraged about. Surely whatever Lena Dunham said couldn’t have been that bad … wait, what’s that? She said WHAT?
“One day, when I was visiting a Planned Parenthood in Texas a few years ago, a young girl walked up to me and asked me if I’d like to be a part of her project in which women share their stories of abortions,” she recalled. “I sort of jumped. ‘I haven’t had an abortion,’ I told her. I wanted to make it really clear to her that as much as I was going out and fighting for other women’s options, I myself had never had an abortion. And I realized then that even I was carrying within myself stigma around this issue. Even I, the woman who cares as much as anybody about a woman’s right to choose, felt it was important that people know I was unblemished in this department.”
“Now I can say that I still haven’t had an abortion, but I wish I had.”
Jesus, Dunham. Jesus Christ.
My bad. I’m with Twitter on this.

Please don't mistake Lena Dunham's comment as pro-choice. What she said was pro-abortion which, until she said it, was not an actual thing.— Tweets By Dreidel (@OhNoSheTwitnt) December 20, 2016
in an era of hyperpartisanship, lena dunham's ability to craft takes that infuriate the entire political spectrum is genuinely impresive— sean. (@SeanMcElwee) December 20, 2016
This is maybe the most perfect description of Lena Dunham ever:
I kind of thought that Lena Dunham was going to be our generation's Woody Allen, but it turns out she's our generation's Woody Allen.— JenAshleyWright (@JenAshleyWright) December 20, 2016
Congrats, Lena. Even the year 2016 is looking at you like, WTF?
