Lena Dunham is the fucking worst. She’s everything that’s wrong with entitled white rich girls and the way society rewards them for being marginally literate (NOT “talented”) and I can’t stand her. Uh, but that’s just me… YMMV, of course. However, people are falling all over themselves over her new book, Not That Kind of Girl… until they actually read it and realize how fucked up this girl actually is.
Here’s an excerpt that found her coming under considerable heat:
“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.”
Uh… I don’t… I’m kinda speechless, actually. I get that little kids don’t really know what genitals are in the sexual sense and that we all do weird shit when we’re little, but a) Lena Dunham was WELL of age to know better – whether having been taught by school or her own parents and b) while kids do weird shit, she writes about looking at her sister’s vagina with some sort of weird pride, like she knows she’s going to get attention for it. Some stories aren’t meant to be shared, girl. It does not make you quirky or funny or awesome, it makes you fucking awful.
Also, not in the above excerpt but worth taking into account is the fact that she joked that she was like a sexual predator and tried all the tricks she thought a predator might. Rightfully, people thought that was pretty awful and gross and somewhat akin to sexual abuse, so Lena naturally turned it right around with her privilege and said YOU’RE the weirdo for thinking she’s weird!
Boo hoo, poor Lena Dunham. Also, I love that this is somehow a political issue conjured up by the “right wing” – girl, WHAT? Get some fucking common sense. Second of all, her sister is laughing? I’m not sure if I believe that, and if she is, it’s maybe laughing at you knowing that people hate you even more than they already did. BOO, GO AWAY.
