Sick Lena Dunham Present Has Little one Ask Homosexual Teen Couple, ‘Are You Gonna Contact Penises?’




The Lena Dunham dramedy Generation on HBO Max reached a brand new low this week when it had a cute little woman ask a homosexual teen couple in the event that they have been going to the touch every others’ penises.

Within the episode, ‘Deepfake,’ on Thursday, June 16, homosexual teen Chester (Justice Smith) is on a date at a curler rink along with his new boyfriend Bo (Marwan Salama.) Whereas they’re awkwardly skating across the rink, a bit woman skates by and asks them if they’re brothers. The dialogue that follows is disturbing.

Little Lady: Are you guys brothers?

Chester: No. Can we appear like we’re brothers? We’re on a date.

Little woman: Oh, so are you gonna contact penises?

Is that this little bit of interplay presupposed to be humorous as an alternative of troubling? Years in the past, Dunham apologized for passages in her memoir that described sexually molesting her youthful sister. “Mainly, something a sexual predator may do to woo a small suburban woman, I used to be making an attempt,” wrote Dunham again then in her tell-all Not That Form of Lady. Critics rightfully referred to as her out on it. Has she realized nothing from the angry reaction to her earlier winks and nods on the sexualization of pre-pubescent youngsters? Go away youngsters out of your intercourse jokes, Lena.

The remainder of the episode takes jabs on the left’s normal objects of hatred. When one bisexual character, Nathan (Uly Schlesinger), needs to upset his mom along with his sexuality, he calls upon Chester to “pretend date” him in entrance of her. Chester thrills on the thought of “messing with a homophobic Evangelical white lady.” Earlier than getting Chester on board, Nathan relishes mocking his mom and her pastor by making up the concept of an actual boyfriend. “Mendacity simply to fuck with them which is a extremely ballsy transfer,” one in every of his mates cheers.

‘Deepfake’ was solely one of many three terrible Era episodes that dropped this week on the streaming service. One other episode, ‘Constructed for Pleasure,’ included a dick pic for the viewers. In that episode, the present’s characters play a socialistic remake of the sport Monopoly with “Bernie bucks” as a result of “Capitalism is white supremacy.”

In fact, no woke LGBT present can be full and not using a nod to the trans agenda. One of many Monopoly gamers features a rising highschool freshman woman who’s a trans boy and is supposedly ok to make varsity together with her brother. However, “I do not even know if they will let me check out since I am trans so I do not know,” the woman who imagines she is a boy says.

“Properly, then we’ll boycott or protest or no matter you want,” a sympathetic mom in the lounge replies. It’s fascinating that the present didn’t use a boy pretending to be a woman for this dialogue, a extra widespread state of affairs amongst trans athletes. Maybe doing so would have made the unfairness of trans gamers in feminine sports activities too apparent. Or possibly that they had a trans-male so {that a} character might say “all skilled sports activities are simply male-dominated, money-making, rapist defender organizations.”

The massive query after watching this sequence is why is Lena Dunham nonetheless writing for tv in any respect? Even her previous “success,” Ladies, never had a very large audience. HBO Max, like so many different streaming providers seems decided to push away American audiences with an unwatchable and sexually perverse woke present written by one other over-hyped and untalented “It Lady” that by no means actually was.
