Just a reminder: the Atlantic gave out a handful of “Brave Thinker of 2012” awards last year, and you lost to writer and actress Lena Dunham. Dunham’s tweet on becoming too attached to underwear resonated with someone out there, as it was retweeted more than 500 times in an hour.

If only Dunham had a nickel for every time someone retweeted her … Planned Parenthood would be slightly richer.

    For her sake, I hope she never gets attached to one specific pair of underwear. #NewDrawersDaily

      I think her scivvies would probably get attached to a wall if she threw them at it.

  • RblDiver

    I’m sure she doesn’t get attached to it, she’s too busy taking it off every chance she gets!

  • Michelle

    Wow, did she really need to announce on Twitter that she got her favorite pair of underwear stained from her period? Claaaaassy broad. Grow up Lena.

    • Bathing Suit Area

      She didn’t need to announce it, but you didn’t need to read it. We all make our choices.

      • Michelle

        Profound. You’re a shoe in for the Brave Thinker Award of 2013.

      Blood is a stain on her underwear. She, on the other hand, is a stain on humanity.

    She gets paid to act though. Did any of her followers ever think to ask her if she donates all of her salary to PP?

        Seeing how you’re responding to me on Twitchy I assume you’d know I am commenting on this site and I most certainly don’t follow her on Twitter. No need to get your panties all twisted up because I make an observation on a cultural idiocy.

      Unless you’re following her on Twitter, it seems that you should be directing your complaint to twitchy, as they’re the ones putting this story in front of you. Or complain to yourself about reading it.

      • Justin Jurek

        No, because this is becoming a nationwide cultural problem; people who can’t keep their private business to themselves.

        • Bathing Suit Area

          Lena Dunham’s laundry issues are not destroying civilization, you can take off the tinfoil hat and climb out of your panic room now.

    Why is this a thing? I enjoy Twitchy but why is this site giving attention to someone so unimportant. Every day there’s some article on tweets by some leftist nobody who clearly has lots of body odor and little intelligence. They send out these inane tweets for attention. Why is Twitchy giving them what they want? You’re aiding the enemy. Any why? To rival TMZ. To look down our noses at human filth. Meh. This isn’t some “sunshine is the best disinfectant” situation. Better to ignore these losers and stop extending their 15 seconds of fame. Just my opinion.

    • Michelle

      Do you not notice this is in Twitchy’s “Entertainment” section?

      • Achilles

        Is Lena Dunham entertaining? Jokes aside, I get it. This trashy TMZ stuff draws in views. Hopefully a few LIV who will click over to more important stuff. Get their blinders stripped off. But Lena Dunham is a pig wallowing in her own filth. Why are we rushing to join her. Maybe LIV are LIV because they fill their brains with stuff like this. We can’t complain that society puts losers like Dunham on a pedestal while we reprint vapid tweets about their underwear. I’d rather not have every site on the internet become some trashy tabloid to get page hits.

        • Michelle

          Personally I don’t think she’s entertaining, but she’s known for a TV show hence the “entertainment” section. I’m not joining her in anything and well, you seem extremely angry about the whole thing. If this bothers you so much, don’t click on the posts that have anything to do with the folks you make you this upset. In the meantime, maybe you can submit to Team Twitchy a list of things that are and are not OK with you for them to post and instruct them to act accordingly?

          • Achilles

            I’m not angry. Just concerned that America is becoming Idiocracy. Sure most people know more about the Kardashians than Congress. Doesn’t mean we have to join in. I’d hope the smart folks at Twitchy, and on the Right in general, could come up with better ways of reaching Low Information Voters. Twitchy is reposting Dunham tweets. NRSCC is copying Buzzfeed. Where does this end?

          • Michelle

            Twitchy covers a wide variety of subjects from Twitter – from very serious to very silly, and they categorize accordingly. It’s because we aren’t low info voters or idiots that we’re able to follow all the topics. Most of us have the ability to closely follow every important issue going on with our country and congress, and also have a laugh or two at folks like this Lena gal (or the Kardashians). If it’s your interest to educate low info voters, what better way than to draw attention to the public idiots like Lena while we respond to their stupidity with facts and knowledge? By bringing attention to these fools and responding to them accordingly, the low info voters are being given something to think about when they see our comments. If we simply ignore them and no one is opposing their public statements, that’s when the low info voters think those idiots have it right.

    • Finrod Felagund

      It can be fun to mock stupid leftists.

      • Achilles

        I totally agree. But isn’t pointing at these fools and laughing just giving them the attention they want? Dunham’s show gets lousy ratings. It’s a small bubble of people who saw this tweet. When Twitchy posts her tweets aren’t we just giving the fire more oxygen? I honestly don’t know. I like to laugh at these Hollywood fools as much as the next guy. But if we weren’t laughing no one would know Dunham existed.
