Maybe not lesbo scenes with Lena Dunham:
‘It is time for women of color – black women in particular – to divest from Lena Dunham,’ Clemmons wrote on Twitter on Sunday.
‘She cannot have our words if she cannot respect us’.
Clemmons said she ‘ran in the same circles’ as Dunham and ‘Girls’ star Jemima Kirke while all three women attended Brown University in the mid-2000s.
She said Dunham and the women in her circle – whom she referred to as ‘wealthy, with parents who are influential in the art world’ – were notorious at the time for ‘their well-known racism’.
‘I’d call their strain ‘hipster racism’, which typically uses sarcasm as a cover, and in the end, it looks a lot like gaslighting–“It’s just a joke. Why are you overreacting?” Clemmons wrote.
She claimed that one woman in the group was ‘known to use the N word in conversation in order to be provocative, and if she was ever called on it, she would say “It’s just a joke”. I was often in the same room with her, but I never spoke to her, only watched her from far in anxiety and horror.’
On the other hand this is really rather fun:
As a result of Lena Dunham’s statements, I have decided I will no longer write for Lenny Letter.
It’s a pretty good job application from a freelance that. Not just that I’m taking an SJW stand, so support me, but I’ve got some free time now too!
