    Lena Dunham and Jack Antonoff have decided to separate after five years of dating:

    The actress took to Instagram Tuesday (Jan 5) to share an inspirational quote about new beginnings. The blue text against a soft pink background reads, “Starting over is the beautiful moment where you choose to love yourself.”

    For some reason, this hit me almost as hard as when Ben and Zooey split up.

    I dislike Lena as much as everyone else but I hate this narrative that he's free from her now or whatever. Unless it was an abusive relationship he couldn't get out of he knew how she is for years and clearly didn't mind all too much lol.

    This is a very good point and I realize that my original comment doesn't really acknowledge that. My apologies.

    It always seemed a little strange to me that someone as outwardly progressive as Jack never had anything to say about her problematic tendencies (that I'm aware of).

    I said it in the Bleachers thread too, but no matter what you think of either of them, it's pretty gross in my opinion to be openly celebrating something that is obviously an emotional and difficult experience for both of them. Especially when it's done on Twitter or somewhere where they're more likely to come across those comments.

    Why do people still act surprised at news posted here? Are people really that dense?

    The amount of hatred and vitriol directed at celebrities (and athletes, and classmates, and mail service professionals, and...) will always kinda shock me, especially when it results in things like people celebrating someone's marriage ending.

    Not to say people shouldn't get very angry at celebrities that do terrible things, like abuse, criminal activity, and so on, I'm not talking about those situations, but in lesser circumstances sometimes I just don't understand where that level of hatred towards strangers is cultivated.
