"Comedian Lena Dunham is leaving Twitter following repeated incidents of verbal abuse from other users, the comedian said this week.
`I really appreciate that anybody follows me at all, and so I didn`t want to cut off my relationship to it completely, but it really, truly wasn`t a safe space for me,` Dunham told a Re/code podcast.
Dunham, who created the television show Girls, said a recent photo of her in a bra and her boyfriend`s boxers on Instagram had prompted intolerable abuse. `It wasn`t a graphic picture,` she said. `I was wearing men`s boxers, and it turned into the most rabid, disgusting debate about women`s bodies.`"
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and there is nothing more subjective than assessing a woman`s physical attractiveness, that being said 99 out of 100 men would agree that Lena Dunham is ugly.
Normally I don`t make public comments about a woman`s homely appearance, unless she`s asking for it, and boy is Dunham asking for it.
As the creator, writer and star of the HBO series "Girls" Dunham has carte blanche to do whatever she wants with the program, and it`s her wont to appear naked on every episode. This gratuitous, in-your-face nudity is alarming, disturbing and nauseating. I have nightmares of the naked pasty-faced, pudgy, cellulite-ridden Dunham chasing me.
It`s one thing to be confident in your appearance, and making no attempt to conform to Hollywood`s unrealistic beauty standards. It`s a horse of a different color to assault our aesthetic sensibilities by disrobing at the drop of a dime, psychologically damaging us for life.
Dunham posts a pic wearing her boyfriend`s boxers on social media, and she`s shocked, shocked, shocked, at the vitriol it unleashes?
Dunham, who admitted in her autobiography that she serially sexually molested her younger sister, would be well-advised to refrain from publishing sexually provocative photographs.
Dunham, thank you from the bottom of my heart for leaving Twitter, please leave television as well, we are sick and tired of you.
