Yeah, Iím Not for Everyone.í Lena Dunham comes to terms with herself.
The Cut ^ | November 26, 2018 | Allison P. Davis

One morning, about three weeks after we’d first met, Lena Dunham sent me ten text messages in a row. She was in the hospital, recovering from a procedure to remove her right ovary, “which was encased in scar tissue & fibrosis, attached to my bowel and pressing on nerves that made it kinda hard to walk/pee/vamp,” as she’d later explain on Instagram. She sent me a post-op photo of herself in bed, a red bracelet that read NO BENZODIAZEPINES dangling from her wrist, hospital gown hiked up, her medical mesh panties out.

She sent more photos, all with little captions and taken with Huji Cam, an app that makes everything look like it was snapped with a disposable camera in the ’90s. There were striking portraits of her artist parents, Laurie Simmons and Carroll Dunham, elegantly keeping bedside vigil and looking mildly annoyed at the camera phone in their face.

There were photos of all the nurses and doctors and surgeons. A close-up of her pubic area, showing off tattoos and hair and the place where the doctor had drawn incision marks in blue ink.

“I’m like Virginia Woolf writing letters only with emojis, and nobody cares,” she texted. Then, over days and weeks, she texted some more.

She's right. Nobody cares.

I can’t believe she found time in her busy schedule to discuss herself (sarcasm).

Hmm, so now the question arises, which was the bigger factor in Lena’s sister becoming a lesbian when she grew up, Lena or the lesbian couple?

We aren’t supposed to body shame her but if a man has a gut the media is okay with catty talk.

Like Madonna, she has had her run. And like Madonna, she is a old washed up hag.

The name Carroll spelled like this, denotes a man. Remember Carroll O’Connor?

"Like Madonna, she has had her run. And like Madonna, she is a old washed up hag."

Two things wrong with this statement.

1. Madonna in her youth was very hot. Let's keep in mind, she is now 60 and still looks pretty good.

2. Madonna had/has talent. Lena Dunham does not have talent and never had talent..

I may not agree with Madonna politically, but there is not much comparison between her and Lena Dunham that I can see except for their shared hate of Donald J. Trump.
