A Bridge Collapsing Under an Overload


From here,

Actress Lena Dunham announced last week that she wished she had snuffed out a baby growing inside her, so that she could escape the “stigma around abortion.” She said that having an abortion made her mother and her friends better people, and she introduced a guest on her show who wanted to have “just a light, cute talk about abortion.”

I am not sure to respond to this.  Perhaps I will start with the suggestion that she is escalating the attention whoring.  The world is becoming more and more acclimated to her (I am not sure that this is a good thing) , and as such, she must continually ramp up the volume.   I wonder what level of volume she believes that she is at now…  Perhaps seven?  I will not be pleased when she turns it up to eleven.

When last we saw her (last week), she was capturing a selfie while taking a dump.  That was distasteful; but this is just plain immoral and callous.  How could anybody think of having an abortion as something akin to a rite of passage?  And not just a rite of passage, but a growth experience.

She is fast becoming a poster-girl for what happens when a society dispenses with Christian morality.  It is difficult to see how this could be portrayed as a positive to people, but then again, perhaps I don’t understand modern young people. I sure hope that there is some pushback here.

Why does everything with her have to be about sex?  Doesn’t she have anything else in her life (other than food)?

Addendum:  After this was written MS. Dunham went on to make a non-apology apology.  She called her remarks “a joke”.  I am not exactly sure how they are funny.  Anyway, I would have more respect for her if she stuck to her guns and didn’t semi-sorta-apologize.

Addendum II: From here,

Now Lena Dunham – one of Hillary’s biggest and (since the result) freaked-out celebrity fangirls has had her very own posh white woman moment. Wanting to be front and centre in the fight for abortion rights, she bemoaned, ‘I have never had one, but I wish I had’.

Perpetually outraged types took this vital opportunity to be outraged once more.

‘I can’t even imagine how offensive Lena Dunham’s comments are for women who have actually has to go through with an abortion’, tweeted one man, playing to the offended crowd.

My life is and always will be devoted to reproductive justice and freedom,’ said Lena

No it is not you daft trout. Your life is devoted to trying to position yourself as chief cheerleader for every man-hating opportunity there is.

Posing for pictures. Then calling out the guy on photo-shop for trying to make the images a little less frightening. 

I expect she wakes up every day wishing she was black, so she could truly own that cause too.

It’s why we ended up with a woman like Rachel Dolezal, who swears she’s Afro-Caribbean, despite the fact both her parents are white.

Resigning from her post as President of the Spokane National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (because she is, in fact, white) she said

“This is not about me. It’s about justice”.

Remind you of anyone? Lena?

It’s all about ME ME ME. You wanting to be part of something, to belong to something. To represent.

Let us help Lena.  What cause can she represent?  What cause should she represent?

    There is one thing that is positive about all this. We can point to Lena and say that this is what feminism leads to.

  13. It is likely that Lena had a hysterectomy a few months ago, when she “took time off to recover from treatment for advanced endometriosis.” SO hopefully, her genes will die with her.

    Otherwise what an unbelievable stupid, stupid comment she made. Unbelievable.But n a weird way, she is so extreme that it’s hopefully a reality check to other women to think, “Huh? That’s waaaaaay too far!”

    I disagree that this woman is equated with lack of Christian morals. I have a lot of respect for my pagan ancestors and even the Christmas tree is in part a remembrance of them, they brought them inside because they feared Christian persecution when making offerings to trees outside. Sure some things were crazy before Christianity, but there was another morality and another culture, not a complete lack thereof.
    I’d respect someone more for making human sacrifices to a deity they genuinely believe in, than someone who would want to make human sacrifices for attention.
