The Comment Awards Believe in Jenny Schecter

Listen: the internet gets a bad rap. And some of it is garbage! But sometimes, every once in awhile, a really good and perfect thing happens (especially on Autostraddle dot com). LIKE THIS WEEK WHEN MIA KIRSHNER READ HEATHER HOGAN’S ESSAY ABOUT JENNY SCHECTER!

So this week, an honorary comment award goes to Mia Kirshner herself, for this tweet:

  1. I hope no one got any tongue-lashings for wishing work colleagues Happy Oral Sex Day. 😉

    Ah, it’s been pouring rain here all day and I have had most excellent hot chocolate with ginger in it. It’s a good day. Hope everyone else is having a good day too.

  2. If only the world were this simple…
    The only difference between them is their gender? Nope. Nope. Nope.

    Bc the main difference is that don was actually a creative genius in ways we as an audience could understand and be in awe of.

    He had a unique point of view on the world and humans.

    Jenny only thought she did. And her work was self indulgent and shitty.

    Don was a tortured genius- Jenny was a wannabe.

    She was disingenuous and playing a part- that’s what made her insufferable.

    Don wasn’t precious about his work- his whole job was manipulation and he knew it. It was never about his own self expression.

    Jenny was a self indulgent hack.

    The work is the lens for me.
