Yesterday, Lena Dunham celebrated Father’s Day by saying that you can take them or leave them.
She deleted the tweet after the blowback, but screenshots are forever. The Daily Wire’s Amanda Prestagiacomo tweeted the screenshot and the replies would have been helpful for Dunham.
I run a non profit that works with pairing at risk youth with mentors. The majority, 80%, come from fatherless homes. Kids need dads.

I'm genuinely sorry she apparently didn't get to experience having a good father.

Daily Wire also had some statistics Dunham might want to consider:
63% of youths who commit suicide come from a fatherless home.
70% of all juveniles in “state-operated institutions” come from a fatherless home.
71% of all high school dropouts come from a fatherless home.
85% of all children who display behavioral disorders come from a fatherless homes.
Dads matter. Fathers Day seems like a weird day to say that they don’t. Dunham Deleted the tweet, but now we know how she really feels. Yikes.
