Just when you thought Lena Dunham couldn’t get any more ridiculous, she suggests white straight men should go extinct, adding that it’s not about “the end of men” but rather just “the evolution of men into better men.” How nice of her.
Last night, she tweeted a video featuring her voice asking a man how he feels “about the extinction of white men”:

The man in the clip says, “well, white men are a problem … white straight men are a big problem, that’s for sure.”
“But I actually feel pretty good about it, I think straight white guys have been screwing things for long enough,” adding: “High time for straight white males to step back and let some other people do it.”
Needless to say, Twitter wasn’t impressed with her edgy pursuit of social justice, with some suggesting she’s being racist:
@lenadunham Nice racist video.

btw, I've gotten a few of these "how does it feel to be extinct" texts from silly female acquaintances.

@lenadunham judging entire groups of people based on skin color and gender. Sorry, I'll remain opposed to such things.

@lenadunham Holy crap this is racist & sexist. Congratulations, you actually stooped lower than most believed that you could.

When will Lena Dunham’s type of feminism go extinct?
