Lena Dunham Totally Molested Her Little Sister, And She’s Upset That It Upsets You
In what can only be described as a bizarre childhood event, Lena Dunham, the star of HBO’s “Girls”, wrote all about he she sexually experimented with he little sister as a child. The problem is with ALL OF THAT.
There are a lot of people who are kind of disgusted by Lena Dunham today. It all stems from a book that she wrote where she describes that she used to do a whole lot of weird shit around her little sister. The kicker is that she is the one who wrote about it, and she’s upset that people are upset about it.
In the book, it reads:
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.
This part of the book took place when Lena and her sister were very young, so she’s trying to chalk up to little kids do weird shit. No, Lena Dunham, just no.
And by the way, if you were a little kid and never looked at another little kid’s vagina, well, congrats to you.

It only gets better, and a lot more disturbing. In yet another part of the book Dunham actually describes that she used tactics used by known predators in these exact situations. Again, she wrote this shit.
As [Grace] grew, I took to bribing her for her time and affection: one dollar in quarters if I could do her makeup like a ‘motorcycle chick.’ Three pieces of candy if I could kiss her on the lips for five seconds. Whatever she wanted to watch on TV if she would just ‘relax on me.’ Basically, anything a sexual predator might to do woo a small suburban girl I was trying. Maybe, I thought, she would be more willing to accept kisses if I wore the face mask my grandmother had for when she did her dialysis. (The answer was no.) What I really wanted, beyond affection, was to feel that she needed me, that she was helpless without her big sister leading her through the world.
So let’s just do a quick recap of events. Lena Dunham sort of kind of molested her little sister. Granted, she was also a little kid, but still. Then when she was old enough to know better she used to bribe her in order “kiss her on the mouth.” That would be odd behavior if you did that with a friend, let alone your sister. So that’s fucked up on two levels.
The thing that gets me is that Lena Dunham is angry that people don’t think this is some sort of charming story. No Lena, it’s not charming. It’s weird as hell.
I know that Dunham is hailed as some hero activist and what not, but how can you not realize just how screwy this situation is? Whether you lean left or right in your political views should have no basis as to whether or not you think this is “normal” behavior. As a matter of fact if you happen to be a psychologist and can tell me other wise, please let me know. Tell me I’m wrong for thinking this is wrong. If this is normal behavior, thank God I’m not normal.
Perhaps this book is a little too tell all. You can leave a few details out, Lena.
