Lena Dunham, Jack Antonoff split after five years of dating

Lena Dunham, Jack Antonoff split after five years of dating

While the image was undoubtedly meant to be a celebration of activists coming together in support of the anti-sexual-harassment initiative, it's unintentionally provoked controversy as a result of Lena Dunham's inclusion in the snap. And it comes after yet another massive misstep for Dunham and the particular brand of performative feminism she so often exhibits: when she accused Girls writer (and woman of colour) Aurora Perrineau of lying about her sexual assault.

Tessa Thompson was among the many women in the entertainment industry who helped to create the Time's Up initiative, which allowed women without financial backing to have the courage and support to speak out about their situation without fear of being bankrupted by lawsuits.

In the celebratory photo Thompson posted yesterday are Michelle Williams, Billie Jean King, Rashida Jones, Susan Sarandon, Laura Dern - and, on the end of the middle row, far right, is Dunham.

In turn, the actress responded with: "Lena was not anywhere present in our group during the countless hours of work for the last two months", Thompson revealed. "So many women also have real work to do", she continued. Dunham told IndieWire in response that it was "for highly personal reasons" that she was unable to join previous efforts. "I've worked with Tessa and respect her artistry and admire her consistent candor". It is for us all, ' she wrote.

However the range which would result in either an all-male or all-female population varies by just a few degrees, scientists said. A turtle's sex is dependent on the temperature at which it is incubated, so warmer nests result in more females.

The pair started dating in December 2012 and reportedly broke up in December 2017, according to E!

The backlash was swift, with many calling Dunham -a self-professed feminist - a hypocrite. Dunham even admitted via a tweet in November 2017 that she thought Antonoff was going to propose after overhearing him and sister having a discussion.

'Things women do lie about: what they ate for lunch.

It was only a few months ago in October when Dunham wrote lovingly of Antonoff on Variety, saying he taught her the importance of making political statements, among other things. We regret this decision with every fiber of our being, ' the statement read.
