Why Jenny Schecter was annoying but necessary

We know, we know, most people roll their eyes at the mention of The L Word’s Jenny Schecter, the fawn-like newbie to the world of lesbianism who rapidly turned unbearable. HOWEVER there were times she kicked butt, so let’s recap those in the name of appreciation.

The courage she demonstrated getting up on stage and stripping in-front of a crowd of straight men just to prove a point was admirable

And even if you did hate her, you loved to hate her because the show wouldn’t have been the same without her
