This is why no one wants to be called a feminist anymore. Last week, Lena Dunham and Jane Fonda gave Judd Apatow an award for his advocacy for women. (By speaking out. On Twitter.)
Anyway, on National Review Michelle Malkin reminds everyone just who Lena is… And how her fake stories not only hurt women but men:
Let me remind you, since the sycophants in the Tinseltown media won’t: Dunham is a freaky-deaky fabulist and creepy Hollywood sexual deviant. After signing a hefty $3.5 million book deal with Random House, the hipster creator of HBO’s Girls and her publisher were forced late last year to walk back bogus allegations about a “rape” attack by an “Oberlin College Republican” named “Barry,” which she had neglected to disclose for nearly a decade — until she needed to generate book publicity.
Please note: “Oberlin College Republicans” are as rare as axolotls. Dunham insists that naming her conjured assailant “Barry” was sheer coincidence. But the harm done to the only Republican named Barry who attended the school at the same time as Dunham was quite real. He was forced off social media, his privacy was invaded, and he had his name dragged through feminist spittle-flecked mud.
When John Nolte of the conservative website Breitbart investigated, he discovered that Dunham’s description didn’t match up with the real Barry. “In the end, Breitbart News could not find a Republican named Barry who attended Oberlin during Dunham’s time there who came anywhere close to matching her description of him,” Nolte reported. “In fact, we could not find anyone who remembered any Oberlin Republican who matched Dunham’s colorful description.”
Wham: “Under scrutiny, Dunham’s rape story didn’t just fall apart; it evaporated into pixie dust and blew away.”
Humiliated and facing a litigation nightmare, Random House paid the falsely accused College Republican’s legal fees after his lawyer complained. Stung and exposed, Dunham carped about conservative journalists who refused to cover up the real truth. She nursed her self-inflicted wounds by publishing a self-pitying diatribe on the liberal website Buzzfeed and posted a prominent Twitter selfie with runny mascara mimicking two black eyes.
Let me also remind you that Dunham’s best-selling memoir contained disturbing accounts of her forcing her younger sister to kiss her, masturbating in bed next to her, joking about acting like a “sexual predator,” and examining her genitals. When bona-fide sexual-abuse victims started expressing their disgust with Dunham’s cavalier attitude, she naturally blamed “conservative white men.”
Dunham also viciously attacked conservatives after critics questioned her soft-porn photo shoot with skeevy fashion photographer and accused sexual harasser Terry Richardson.
Should Lena be the one giving out awards for those speaking out for women? After all that?
Plus, since she purposefully ignores the millions of baby girls being murdered by Planned Parenthood, it’s time for feminists to pick a person who represents their values.
Well, I guess since feminists typically value sexual indiscretion, abortion on demand, and deceit, they already have.
