Yep, Lena Dunham our good’ol, resident child molester is at it again! This time, she’s back to championing herself as a victim of a rape that, by all evidence currently provided, likely never happened. She does so while accepting an award, speaking out for real rape victims. Her shame knows no bounds. A few points to take away from her speech below (not the least of which is her constant profiteering off of the backs of rape victims, but oh well… roll clip)
Firstly, context is important here. Again, Lena is accepting an award presented on behalf of a charity (GEMS) who actually do some really good work in assisting victims of sex-trafficking. Yet faster than you can yell “rape culture”, Lena take the chance to insult critics, and make the whole damn thing about… well, Lena Dunham.
“When I was raped, I felt powerless.”
Oh jeez. Okay, if Lena Dunham was ever raped (though evidence points toward no), she opted not to press charges, nor reveal the name of the offender. Not only that, but she refused to cooperate with Oberlin police for an investigation. Statistically, many rapists who get away with it end up raping again. Up to six out of ten. Why doesn’t Lena Dunham think that it’s her duty to protect the next girl?
“So as a feminist, and a sexual assault survivor, my ultimate goal is to use my experience, my platform and yes, my privilege to reverse stigma and give voice to other survivors.”
Really, Lena? How about saving them by putting a real-life rapist behind bars? How about pressing charges? Most actual victims of sexual assault don’t have a national television show (albeit poorly rated). What they do have is the ability to bring that rapist to justice through a modern legal system. Yet many of them are terrified to do so. How about setting an example for them to follow, by showing them how to exercise their rights in regards to sexual assault? Unless of course, she wasn’t raped.
Lena Dunham has become the Al Sharpton of feminism. The Jesse Jackson of rape survivors. Not only in the sense that she’s verifiably dishonest, but in that she also has no problem in shamelessly profiteering off of the sexual assault of others.
What Lena Dunham does is of tremendous disservice to actual rape survivors.
