National Suicide Prevention Week began Sept. 9 and goes through Sept. 15. If you know of anyone who needs suicide prevention resources, click here.
The Hillary-loving feminist Lena Dunham started the “Lenny Letter” website described as “feminism, style, health & politics – unfiltered.”
As a feminist, Lena doesn’t believe one should shame another woman in public. She was mad when Jezebel criticized her Vogue photo shoot and called what they said, “bullsh*t.”
As a feminist, Lena is fine with her body and doesn’t like to be Photoshopped (although she frequently is).
As a feminist, Lena believes the way that women are spoken to on social media is shocking and comparable to the abuse of Guantanamo prisoners.
As a feminist, Lena is an “advocate” for young women everywhere. She is a strong woman who “empowers” other women.
Or so she would have you believe…
Lena posted the above meme on her Instagram account on Sept. 9, just in time to kick off the week. Her caption: “Do not settle for second best this week!!!”
Stuff like this MAKES ME MAD. Suicide is not a joke. I had a cousin who committed suicide and know of a couple other people who attempted suicide.
Lena obviously missed the memo that the majority of college students say they’re stressed, with many reporting suicidal thoughts.
Netflix has a show called “13 Reasons Why” that revolves around teenagers committing suicide and self harm. It’s been criticized for glamorizing suicide and several families have blamed the series for inspiring their children to kill themselves.
In 2016, the New York Times reported that suicides hit a 30-year high, with an alarming increase among girls ages 10 to 14.
Memes like this one that Lena posted do not inspire women. This type of “empowering” feminism is bad form and a horrible example coming from a “role model” of today’s feminist movement.
Shame on you, Lena.
