    Everyone is causing an uproar about a few women who chose not to wear black, but no one is angry Lena Dunham was there?

    So it’s more important to “celebrate” than stand for the cause. And if her mom didn’t get that, then her mom is dumb

    She wasn’t, she went to an after-party

    That anyone feels obligated to *explain* themselves why they chose not to wear black bothers me. No one should do things because it’s expected, or an obligation, or just cause everyone else is doing it, regardless of the cause. I hate wearing black but I’ll do it cause it’s expected and half the celebrities are doing it. Sounds like peer pressure and bullying to me.

    Your comment is dumb. She is not obligated to wear black.

  • Maria M.

    Half of these people wore black only because they were terrified of the media lynch if they didn’t. It’s horrible.

    if you’re all about women’s rights and supporting women then support whatever the f color they want to wear. wearing black, or not, doesn’t make them less involved in the “cause.” being upset she didn’t wear black is ridiculous, aren’t they supposed to be supporting all women? geesh
