Although Lena Dunham is no fan of Kellyanne Conway, she’s not here for digs at the presidential counselor’s appearance. In a series of tweets posted Sunday morning, the liberal writer/producer expressed the view that commenting on women’s looks doesn’t advance the conversation.

Leave it to Lena Dunham to make weight loss political. After US Weekly used her photo in a story about “20 Slimdown Diet Tips Stars Are Using,” the liberal actress and writer—a noted critic of body-shaming and dieting—responded with some characteristic political snark.

Lena Dunham takes every chance she gets to display her support for abortion rights. At Monday’s Met Gala, an annual fundraising event that attracts the brightest stars in Hollywood, Dunham sported a red and black one-shouldered ensemble. A silver Planned Parenthood pin, tucked beneath a ruffle, completed the look.

It’s a wonder that Lena Dunham and Samantha Bee have only just met. After all, the vulgar writer/actress and comedian/talk-show host are cut from the same progressive, feminist cloth. But the anticipation of Bee’s Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner special finally brought them together in a New York City interview published by The Hollywood Reporter. During the duo’s conversation, Dunham talked with late night’s only female host about life in the Trump era and her experience with her TBS show Full Frontal.

Lena Dunham – a media darling shunned by many liberals and conservatives alike – has a new show on the road. After the finale of her controversial HBO series Girls, Dunham and producing partner Jenni Konner are planning their next project. In a statement published early this week, the women announced that they will be taking Lenny Letter – a feminist newsletter they began in 2015 – on a six-day tour through the Midwest.

The media love to analyze Girls. Somehow, despite its low viewership, Lena Dunham’s raunchy show about four millennial women finding their way in New York City captured the fancy of the journalistic world – from Jezebel to The New York Times. Now, in the wake of the final episode, writers and critics are “mourning the end of an era” with the loss of the “influential” HBO series. But, amidst all the ruminations on the show’s legacy, no one is asking: what does the journalist-hype for Girls say about the media?

In Sunday night’s episode of HBO’s Girls, “Full Disclosure,” Lena Dunham's character Hannah is still informing her close friends and family about her pregnancy. Her decision to keep the baby comes as shocking “news” to those she tells given that Hannah is, much like Dunham herself, strongly liberal and extremely pro-abortion - so much so that Dunham stated publicly that she wishes she had had an abortion.

On Sunday’s episode of HBO’s Girls, “Gummies,” Hannah (Lena Dunham) continues with her decision to keep her baby that she conceived after a very brief fling with a surf instructor while on a writing assignment. The seemingly pro-life storyline is a bit suspect given Dunham’s avid support of abortion and her wish that she could have had one herself (which she later apologized for while stating that she still wants to remove the “stigma” surrounding the controversial procedure.)

It is impossible to feel lukewarm about Lena Dunham. Like Hillary Clinton, the Girls actress and Lenny Letter co-founder inspires either deep revulsion or fawning acclaim. And that rift even extends to the liberal media world.

Thanks to the president, several stressed Hollywood stars are suffering from disordered eating. “Donald Trump is making me gain weight,” entertainment icon Barbra Streisand tweeted on March 5. “I start the day with liquids, but after the morning news, I eat pancakes smothered in maple syrup!”

Lena Dunham is a huge Planned Parenthood and abortion supporter. She was a Planned Parenthood abortionist for Halloween one year – and not in a bloody horror way, but in a “newsy, sexy, and cool” way. How much does Lena love abortion? Just in December she said, “I still haven’t had an abortion, but I wish I had.” Well, now she might get her wish, via her character Hannah on the HBO series Girls.

Having finally watched an episode of HBO’s Girls, I can now honestly say how inane, self-righteous, raunchy, and, quite honestly, stupid the show is first-hand. This is not something I say proudly, especially when it regards a topic something that should never be covered by Lena Dunham: women’s accusations of rape.
