Recently, actress and notable feminist Lena Dunham (Tiny Furniture) released Not That Kind of Girl, a collection of essays about her personal life. In it, she describes her growth into womanhood, specifically with an experience she had with her sister when she was seven and her sister was one. According to sheknows.com, the controversial essay passage went like this:
'Do we all have uteruses?' I asked my mother when I was seven.
'Yes,' she told me. 'We're born with them, and with all our eggs, but they start out very small. And they aren't ready to make babies until we're older.' I look at my sister, now a slim, tough one-year-old, and at her tiny belly. I imagined her eggs inside her, like the sack of spider eggs in Charlotte's Webb, and her uterus, the size of a thimble.
'Does her vagina look like mine?'
'I guess so,' my mother said. 'Just smaller.'
One day, as I sat in our driveway in Long Island playing with blocks and buckets, my curiosity got the best of me. Grace was sitting up, babbling and smiling, and I leaned down between her legs and carefully spread open her vagina. She didn't resist and when I saw what was inside I shrieked.
My mother came running. 'Mama, Mama! Grace has something in there!'
My mother didn't bother asking why I had opened Grace's vagina. This was within the spectrum of things I did. She just on her knees and looked for herself. It quickly became apparent that Grace had stuffed six or seven pebbles in there. My mother removed them patiently while Grace cackled, thrilled that her prank had been a success.
Eventually, a conservative blog known as Truth Revolt posted a story on the article entitled: Lena Dunham Describes Sexually Abusing Her Little Sister (seen above). Commenters on the website expressed their disgust with Dunham:
What's the statute of limitations? She should be prosecuted.
What a sick pig...If it was a man his career would be finished. Too bad this no talent, corpulent sack 'o crap will malinger about for years.
WTF! Do progressives think this is entertaining? This is one sad young woman.
It is worth noting that the Truth Revolt article has originally said that Dunham was seventeen during the incident when she was actually seven. Dunham responded to the article in a series of tweets:
Truth Revolt responded back with another article entitled: Lena Dunham Goes On 'Rage Spiral,' 'LOL's About Sexual Abuse. In it, it is described that:
In the collection of nonfiction personal accounts, Dunham describes using her little sister at times essentially as a sexual outlet, bribing her to kiss her for prolonged periods and even masturbating while she is in the bed beside her. But perhaps the most disturbing is an account she proudly gives of an episode that occurred when she was seven and her sister was one.
The website, since correctly re-stating Dunham as being seven during the incident, argues that while she was only seven, she should still be held accountable for being proud of such a graphic personal experience. Commenters on Truth Revolt stood by the website:
She's a Beast, a exhibitionist who wants approval and when she's publicaly shamed by her own words. She's mad and starts swearing? Well she has set Feminazis back 20 + because no one wants a nasty,dirty,beast to be a role model.Go away your a no talent gross, young woman. Emphasis on young she's immature.
You put shit out there to get a reaction and then get pissed when you get the reaction. Stupid liberal progressive BS.
Hahaha. This makes my day. I cannot stand her. And no, sorry, but I never had any curiosity whatsoever about my siblings' genitals, you sick puppy. It might be because my parents clearly raised me a whole lot better than they raised you . .
It is unknown if Dunham will make another response to these comments, but expect a lot of arguing from both sides, as both are extremely vocal.
