- That tiny little thing where her entire damn TV show has no POC in it
- POC cast in Girls play only “the help”, random people:

Well done Sunday Times, you decided to write a spread on Feminism and successfully included all the problematic white cis feminists who parade around ruining feminism for the rest of us. Lena Dunham, and her lack of PoC in “Girls” as well as her problematic, racist, Orientalist travel diaries soon to be published as a book; Hadley Freeman, who shames women like Beyonce for being happy enough with their bodies to pose/wear little clothing (and thus, Beyonce is not allowed call herself a feminist!?); the Vagenda for dismissing intersectionality because it’s ~too hard~, for always sticking up for Moran, and this lovely quote, ignoring all the feminist efforts by WoC, “feminism is, and to an extent always has been, a white, middle class movement”; and Caitlin Moran, possibly the biggest douche EVER, who’s slut-shamed, victim-blamed, “literally could not give a shit” about the lack of PoC in Lena’s “Girls” and never, ever, EVER owns up or apologises for her mistakes.
Yep, a really fantastic load of feminists you have there, and of course, there was obviously no space to feature any feminists of colour right (or feminists with worthwhile, non-problematic, intersectional points of view…?)
social justice identitarians love branding themselves, don’t they? reactionary whiteness is terribly trend aware.
are you kidding me with that vagenda bullshit? intersectional feminism or no feminism, i say.

Ugh of course
Glover’s character, Sandy, is described as “a handsome black Republican” who’s dating Lena Dunham’s Hannah and who, at one point, calls her out on her “knowledge of race and its ramifications.” This reportedly inspires Dunham to respond with a “self-righteous, defensive rant” that also includes a Missy Elliott lyric.
it’s even worse than i thought
HOW ABOUT NOT
I just spit out my popcorn because really this sounded too fake and horrible to be true. Lena Dunham is the worst
Any more questions as to why I can’t stand this woman????
