Watching them eat their own is fun but somehow….

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!

    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”.

    This girl is going to have to work a little harder if she wants me to feel sorry for the fat unfunny b!tch but she is getting there. After all Dunham is being blamed because one girl she hung out with in college used the N word ironically?

    FFS.

    ‘only watched her from far in anxiety and horror’

    A mental state of ‘anxiety and horror’ because someone said a word is sick. Feminidiot? Snowflakeitis?

    Her mommy never taught her “sticks & stones?”

  3. So Much For Subtlety

    Slightly off topic:

    http://www.vulture.com/2017/11/paul-feig-regrets-that-ghostbusters-remake-became-a-cause.html

    Now one year removed from the film’s release, Feig spoke at Vulture Festival LA about how his Ghostbusters unintentionally turned into a “cause” he never intended to create, and how that cause may have ultimately hindered the movie’s success.

    “I think it kind of hampered us a little bit because the movie became so much of a cause. I think for some of our audience, they were like, ‘What the fuck? We don’t wanna go to a cause. We just wanna watch a fuckin’ movie,’” the director says. And he still has mixed emotions about how it all panned out.

    “It was a great regret in my life that the movie didn’t do better, ‘cause I really loved it,” Feig explained.

    So man tries to boost his career by making his film into a Cause. Only it backfires because the paying customers do not like being lectured to. His low-level Cause becomes an alt-Right high-level Cause. So he and his entire cast double down by calling the paying customers sexists and racists and God knows what else.

    A year later he is still b!tching about it? That brought a smile to my face. The only thing that could please me more is him and the entire cast being hit by a bus.

    Roger Goodell? Are you paying attention? Watching closely? Dunham is finding what happens when you try to f**king play with these people. Feig has found out already.

  4. SMFS,

    No. The Ghostbusters 2017 film is just legitimately terrible. The politics around it stank, but it’s also a stinker. It’s legitimately one of the worst movie of the 1000+ movies I’ve ever seen. It has no redeeming qualities on any level. I’m kinder to films starring or directed by Madonna.

  5. So Much For Subtlety

    I am not sure what that “no” is doing there. No one is denying it stank. Which Feig may have weakly sensed so he played up the SJW aspect. Although to be honest he clearly came to the film from a SJW crusading perspective. Women can do anything! Even bust ghosts if they want to! Yeah, Team Women!

    But it blew up in his face because people are tired of this sh!t. To which he and his cast responded with further abuse.

    Although I have to admit Melissa McCarthy’s career stumps me. Does anyone find her anything other than grating and unlikeable? Even teaming her with Sandra Bullock does not make her remotely appealing.
