Lena Dunham just called out Us Weekly for putting a photo of her on its cover right next to a headline about "20 Slimdown Diet Tips Stars are Using."

In response, the Girls creator took to Instagram with 20 of her own "tips" that have nothing to do with dieting. Among them: "anxiety disorder" (which she aptly pointed out is "a pre-existing condition"), "an election that reveals the true depths of American misogyny," and "worrying ceaseless about the health and safety of women you know and you don't." She also mentioned threats to institutions she loves, like PBS and Planned Parenthood, as well as threats to her physical safety online and through snail mail.

Her 20th "tip" really said it all, however: "I have no tips. I give no tips. I don't want to be on this cover cuz it's diametrically opposed to everything I've fought my whole career for and it's not a compliment to me because it's not an achievement thanx." Read her whole message below:
