Cancel Lena Dunham's Intersectional Feminist Class at NYU Gallatin

This petition had 80 supporters

Lena Dunham has consistently showed herself to not just be a problematic person but also one who is incapable of thinking in a emapathtetic and rational way. From her exclusion of black people im her HBO show Girls to her admission of sexually assaulting her sister in her memoir to her comments about wishing to being islamosphic to being orientalist to homophobic comments and unconsenually outing her sister, she clearly should not under any circumstances be  teaching a class on interestional feminism as she has no practice of doing that in her own life. I beg Gallatin to find another teacher to teach this intersectional feminist class as there are pleanty of smart, intersectional academics who have not benefited from the immense amount of privilege Dunham has. For Gods sake the class is even called "Intersectional Feminism: The Complexities of Having a Vagina in the Trump Era" which is INCREDIBLY transphobic. Please, please stop this.
