Lena Dunham was pretty pissed off to find herself on a recent covering of Us Weekly, and we candidly can’t blame her.

Next to a headline provide “2 0 Slimdown diet tips stars are use, ” Us Weekly ran a photo of the “Girls” star with the caption “Lena: how she gets motivated.”

But here’s the thing: Dunham didn’t give the publication any “slimdown” tips nor did she let them know how she gets motivated.

In a searing reply on Instagram, Dunham plummeted some brutal honesty about weight and health:

20 slimdown diet tips! 1. nervousnes ailment* 2. resultant constant nausea 3. an election that exposes the true depths of American misogyny 4. constant sweaty dreams of dystopian future 5. abdominal adhesions pinning ovary below uterus* 6. baseless but still harrowing threats to physical safety online and through smail mail 7. watching universities you desire from Schemed Parenthood to PBS be threatened by cartoon mustache-twirling rogues 8. finally recognizing superheroes aren’t real( specifically the X-Factor, really thought they’d handle this) 9. marching your ass off 10. a quiet rage that supplants need for food with need for avenge 11. sleeping 19 hours per day 12. realizing that even the liberal media craves dem clicks no matter whut 13. obsessing endlessly about the health and safety of women you know and women you don’t 14. realizing who ya real friends are 15. having to switching from Uber to Lyft( lots of calories burned trying to understand a new app, then even more trying to understand if existing conflicts was resolved) 16. bladder cramps, urinary frequency and urgency* 17. having your phone number leaked and violent images texted to your telephone by randos under names like VERYFATCHUCKYBOY @creepz. com 18. continuing your back arched against the wind 19. um, who the fuck cares? 20.

“[ Weight loss is] diametrically opposed to everything I’ve fought my whole job for and it’s not a compliment to me because it’s not an accomplishment, ” she wrote as the 20 th and final “tip.”

Listing everything from an nervousnes ailment to being stalked by strangers online, Dunham touches on a bunch of factors that may have affected her weight in one way or another. The most important phase here, though, is that weight simply shouldn’t topic . And in Dunham’s case, this is something she’s talked about over and over c’mon, people!

“I feel I’ve made it clearly articulated over the years that I don’t devote even the tiniest of shits what anyone else been thinking about my torso, ” she wrote on Instagram back in March.

“I’ve is cognizant of the fact that my torso is an ever changing organism , not a fixed entity what goes up must come down and vice versa. I smile just as broad no matter my current size because I’m proud of what this torso has insured and done and represented.”

A person’s weight or weight loss don’t automatically correlate with a person’s health and that’s something worth keeping in mind the next time you’re seduced to tell, “You look great; did you lose weight? “

Illustrator Miriam Caldwell “ve opened” about the extremely awkward situation she was put in as friends praised her on losing weight not knowing that the weight loss was bring along an illness. And in Dunham’s case, she’s recently lost some weight as research results of taking steps to try and manage her endometriosis.

The point is that you don’t know what someone’s situation is, and sometimes these “compliments” can actually be painful and embarrassing.

Thank you for all the love& concern that’s been pouring in since Tuesday. Although I’m much healthier than I was a year ago, complications arose from my most recent endometriosis surgery. When the healthcare of so many American females, specially our trans sisters, is at-risk- or already nonexistent- I am lucky to be in the position to seek help when I’m in pain. To those in that privileged spot- never forget that we are blessed and can pay it forward by supporting Schemed Parenthood and LGBTQ clinics like Callen-Lorde with our and. I also want to remind all the women suffering from chronic illness that we aren’t weak- quite the opposite, actually. We do our occupations with skill even when we’re fighting. We care for our families even when we can hardly care for ourselves. We serve major face on a red carpet where reference is feel like lying face down would be more appropriate. I’ll always be proud of those Met Gala pics- not just because I seemed beautiful, surrounded by art and magic, hugging our friend tightly, but because they’re proof that females contain steely multitudes. Just that morning @dianafalzone sued Fox after they took her off air for disclosing her endometriosis. But they’re the ones who lost when they burnt her, because everyone who’s anyone known to be if you can battle chronic illness there’s nothing you can’t take over .

Being skinny doesn’t automatically stimulate you a spokesperson for all things healthy, just as being fat doesn’t signify mean you’re unhealthy. Health can’t be measured on a scale, and it’s not something any of us can see simply by looking at another person. So don’t let publications mislead you by simply telling you half the story. Health and happiness is possible at any size.
