Yeap. To be fair, it is still pretty common for people to use her name synonymously with oral S*x, ejaculation stains, etc. She has always been a good sport about it, so I don't think a lot of people realized that its offensive to her. I don't look at this as shade towards Beyonce...more like she is tired of dealing with it after nearly two decades.

I think that she should let the world know how she feels about it because she has been the punchline of some very vulgar jokes for much too long.

Almost three decades which is crazy! I think that women who were adults, especially young adults, at that time connect more with Lewinsky than women who were young children or not even born at that time.

Shit! It has been almost 30 years!!!! Where the hell did the time ago!!?? I was a teenager back then and it is different looking at it through adult eyes.

I get that backlash over affairs comes with the territory but 3 decades after taking responsibility for a mistake she made?????

I’d want to be left alone too.

I guess I live under a bit of a rock because I didn't know her name was even used in that way. I remember the scandal itself, I was in my last year of college at the time, and I know she was talked about for some time, but I never knew her name became a synonym for those things.

But then, I also still don't quite get the use of the word "shade" in the way you used it here so yeah, that tells you where I'm at. lol

Lewinsky considers herself Patient Zero in what became an epidemic of internet shaming. She has some interesting insights into the role of social media in society.
