Too bad, so sad: Libtard Lena Dunham’s feminist “Lenny Letter” shuts down

As far as I’m concerned, the less we have to hear from this womyn the better.

From Hollywood Reporter: Another joint venture from Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner has come to an end, as the Girls showrunners are going in separate directions after ending their producing partnership three months ago.

The pair’s Lenny Letter newsletter aimed at smart young women, which started as a weekly offering but increased its frequency to twice a week, is shutting down. An email to subscribers Friday morning confirmed reports Thursday from the New York Post and Digiday, which obtained an email saying staffers were informed of the closure last week.

In the Friday message, Dunham and Konner wrote “this is Lenny’s final chapter,” and said, “While there’s no one reason for our closure, this change allows for growth and a shift in perspectives — ours and yours.” They also praised subscribers for creating “a fiercely passionate community of dedicated readers, writers, and artists” and encouraged readers to “continue to push forward the voices that need a platform, the untold stories that deserve to be heard, the diversity that the publishing industry claims to value but has never mastered.”

And they urged people to vote, and help others do the same, in the upcoming midterm elections on Nov. 6 as a way to make real change.

“Real change-making takes work, and part of that work will come this November,” Dunham and Konner wrote. “There is nothing more critical to counteracting the daily devastation of the current regime than the midterm elections. Knock on strangers’ doors, drive people who can’t drive themselves to the polls, host a postcard-writing party to encourage unlikely voters, canvas at Taylor Swift concerts. Do whatever it takes.”

Later on Friday, Konner posted about the end of Lenny Letter on her Instagram account, writing, “Goodbye, Lenny Letter. Our final issue is a special one. Thank you to everyone who read it, wrote it, photographed and illustrated it.”

Dunham and Konner launched Lenny in 2015 as a weekly email newsletter aimed at smart young women.

Lenny Letter, was designed to feature a mix of personal essays and articles about politics, fashion and entertainment, all from a contemporary feminist perspective.

The initiative quickly featured high-profile essays, including one by Jennifer Lawrence in which she talked about her surprise and dismay when she learned she was being paid less than her male co-stars on American Hustle. Subscribers receive the newsletter twice a week.

Dunham and Konner intended to embark on a six-city Lenny IRL tour in 2017 before Dunham was forced to cancel due to ongoing health issues related to her endometriosis.

It’s National Suicide Prevention Week: Check out the “crave death” meme Lena Dunham posted

Lena Dunham: Inspiring young women to “not settle”

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 Whythat 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.
