Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) is a personality disorder in which a person is excessively preoccupied with personal adequacy, power, prestige and vanity, mentally unable to see the destructive damage they are causing to themselves and to others in the process.
They have an exaggerated feelings of self-importance. They have a sense of entitlement and demonstrate grandiosity in their beliefs and behavior. They have a strong need for admiration, but lack feelings of empathy.
NPD is characterized by an over-inflated sense of self-importance, as well as dramatic, emotional behavior that is in the same category as antisocial and borderline personality disorders.
Daily Mail: Celebrities who participated in an online campaign included Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling, and Ellen Page.
Earlier that same day, Lena posted a collage of all who had participated in the campaign, which revealed that Rashida Jones and America Ferrera all lent their star power. She captioned the montage: ‘These dream women stand for equality and justice. And they encourage you to vote November 4th.’
For Kaling’s photo, Lena wrote: ‘The inimitable @mindykaling, a beloved voice for women and an angel in pink #iamwatching2014 #weheartplannedparenthood’. And for Poehler she made sure to pull a play on words, referencing her show Parks And Recreation: ‘The angel known as Knope #amypoehler #womenarewatching #weheartplannedparenthood’.
While Page got some love too: ‘More bold brave models tomorrow… But dream of Ellen Page tonight.’
Last month, Lena discussed her weight battle over the years telling People.com how she battled severe anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorder because of unhappiness about her body as a child.
Her new book even has a whole chapter detailing the stringent food journal she kept in an attempt to lose weight when her acting career took off. She explained: ‘When I got out of college I thought, “What am I gonna do? No one’s gonna hire me, I’m a fat girl.“‘
‘My food intake was a hard thing to share publicly. A lot of my life and work is sort of about not succumbing to [those pressures], so it’s a little painful to go, “Oh but look, there was a time where this dominated every moment of every day”.’ Lena ended up in hospital at one point with ‘crazy stomach pains’ because of her restricted food intake, and consumption of laxative tea and coffee.
But the star says she now feels ‘special’ and credits her ‘incredibly supportive boyfriend’ Jack Antonoff, with helping her.
This is the same girl who wrote in her new book about experimenting sexually with her younger sister. From Truth Revolt:
In her newly published collection of personal essays, Not That Kind of Girl, Lena Dunham describes experimenting sexually with her younger sister Grace, whom she says she attempted to persuade to kiss her using “anything a sexual predator might do.” In one particularly unsettling passage, Dunham experimented with her six-year younger sister’s vagina. “This was within the spectrum of things I did,” she writes.
In the collection of nonfiction personal accounts, Dunham describes using her little sister at times essentially as a sexual outlet, bribing her to kiss her for prolonged periods and even masturbating while she is in the bed beside her. But perhaps the most disturbing is an account she gives of an episode that occurred when she was seven and her sister was one. Here’s the full passage (p. 158-9):
“Do we all have uteruses?” I asked my mother when I was seven.
“Yes,” she told me. “We’re born with them, and with all our eggs, but they start out very small. And they aren’t ready to make babies until we’re older.” I look at my sister, now a slim, tough one-year-old, and at her tiny belly. I imagined her eggs inside her, like the sack of spider eggs in Charlotte’s Webb, and her uterus, the size of a thimble.
“Does her vagina look like mine?” “I guess so,” my mother said. “Just smaller.”
One day, as I sat in our driveway in Long Island playing with blocks and buckets, my curiosity got the best of me. Grace was sitting up, babbling and smiling, and I leaned down between her legs and carefully spread open her vagina. She didn’t resist and when I saw what was inside I shrieked.
My mother came running. “Mama, Mama! Grace has something in there!”
My mother didn’t bother asking why I had opened Grace’s vagina. This was within the spectrum of things I did. She just on her knees and looked for herself. It quickly became apparent that Grace had stuffed six or seven pebbles in there. My mother removed them patiently while Grace cackled, thrilled that her prank had been a success.
Dunham describes the book as a “work of nonfiction” in which “some names and identifying details have been changed.” She also states that she considers herself an “unreliable narrator,” which gives her some wiggle room on the truth of her accounts. As National Review‘s Kevin D. Williamson notes, this passage is “especially suspicious.” Clearly Grace’s prank is done with the expectation of her older sister “poking around in her genitals. … There is no non-horrific interpretation of this episode.”
Does she have NPD? Probably. Would explain why she fully supports Obama.
