    Actresses Lena Dunham and America Ferrera teamed up for a joint speech in support of presidential nominee Hillary Clinton at the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday, during which Dunham said that Clinton has stood up for her “fellow sexual assault survivors” in her home state of New York. “I am a pro-choice, feminist sexual assault survivor with a chronic reproductive illness, the 30-year-old Girls star and creator said. “Donald Trump and his party think I should be punished for exercising my Constitutional rights.

    Lena Dunham has launched a scathing attack on Donald Trump, calling the Republican Presidential candidate a "hell hound". The Girls creator and star, who has publicly supported Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton since the start of her campaign, has been critical of the billionaire since he launched his bid for the White House. And at TheWrap's Power Women Breakfast in New York on Thursday (09Jun16), the actress did not hold back when talking about Trump. Calling him a "maniacal, misogynist, racist, Islamophobic, ableist, transphobic hell hound", she went on to reveal she frequently laughs at the controversial politician. "I think we...

    Since politics as we used to know it is apparently dead and gone, what the heck? We may as well dive into this story. You’re probably already at least somewhat familiar with actress Lena Dunham of Girls fame and her unabashed lurch into the world of politics. She’s a major Hillary Clinton supporter and has done her level best to raise money for her and push the young folks toward electing the historic First Female President. But now she may be inadvertently influencing conservatives around the nation and giving GOP frontrunner Donald Trump one last push toward the finish...

    Rosie and Whoopi too. Frequently naked TV actor and horrific human being, Lena Dunham, is worried. Donald Trump is running for President and, if he wins, it will spark a global catastrophe or something. Honestly, we’re not entirely sure what she thinks is going to happen, and we don’t really care. She’s deep in the tank for Hillary, so it’s a safe bet she harbors the same fears about anyone who would dare usurp her chosen queen. Because of her deep-seated fears, she’s joined a growing list of Hollywood leftists who are incentivizing a Trump presidency by promising to leave...

"The way she has been treated is just more evidence of the fact that our country has so much hatred toward successful women," Ms. Dunham, the creator and star of the HBO series "Girls," said at a Clinton campaign event in Manchester, N.H. But at an Upper East Side dinner party a few months back, Ms. Dunham expressed more conflicted feelings. She told the guests at the Park...

    The Clinton campaign has a tin ear for remedying their candidate's woman problem. Lena Dunham is going to campaign for Hillary Clinton. To them, it seems a mutually beneficial arrangement. They both trade in being a woman. Clinton is losing the support of women, and Dunham needs press for her career. They've been partnering for months, actually. Dunham debuted her Lenny Letter email list with a Clinton interview. It was campaign clickbait which included the de rigueur question about feminism--Are you a feminist?--and talk about dresses....

Are you interested in men?’ It was the best thing. So Diane Keaton was just straight up like, ‘There is a lesbian...

    Judd Apatow continues to throw shade, shade, shade at Bill Cosby, months after the media firestorm over his rape allegations has subsided. Cosby, 77, is accused of sexually assaulting at least 40 women since the '60s. He has denied the allegations, which resurfaced last October, and has never been charged with a crime over them. He has meanwhile continued performing standup comedy. However, his onscreen career has stalled. The controversy had drawn a slew of mocking tweets and the star that appears to be the least relentless is Apatow, 47, who has often slammed him online. "I can't believe we...

When Josh Duggar, now an adult, was found to have molested four of his sisters when he was an adolescent, the show was cancelled and Duggar was obliged to resign from a position at the Family Research Council.

In the essay in the highbrow mag's March 30 issue, the 28-year-old actress asks, "Do the following statements refer to (a) my dog or (b) my Jewish boyfriend?" "He doesn't tip. And he never brings his wallet anywhere," she writes in one hint. Elsewhere in the "Shouts & Murmurs" column, she reveals...

    The common definition of blasphemy is simple: an affront to faith or belief, an offense to god or what you believe to be spiritually sacred. This definition has widened, however, to encompass truly anything you hold sacred. No longer just a religious term, people apply blasphemy to language about gender, social issues, climate, pets, their heroes, their countries, even their health practices, favorite bands or teams. Mind you, this is different from the faux outrage I wrote an entire book about (see the delightful The Joy of Hate), in which people trump up phony anger based on assorted violations of...

The article was headlined “That Girl Is A Woman Now: In four years, Lena Dunham has springboarded from cable’s freshest voice to full-on cultural icon.” Jessica Pressler began with Dunham showing up in a black SUV at the Austin, Texas abortion center of Planned Parenthood, asking “Do I need to cover up my nipples?” The writer crassly noted this is odd considering “Her rack has logged so much...

    There are few figures in popular media that I find less interesting than Lena Dunham.It has always seemed to me that the absurdly copious acclaim she receives from moribund institutions of spent cultural relevance like The New York Times were inversely proportional to her observable significance. She was a useful totem for the cultural left; unconventional, counter-cultural, a writer and performer on a modestly popular show that exalts lasciviousness, and, most importantly, an activist progressive. As such, she needs to be aggrandized even though her commendations are not entirely earned and her vast influence cannot be independently confirmed. I...

    Lena Dunham, of HBO’s Girls fame, is in under scrutiny once again following the release of her book, Not That Kind of Girl. The book initially drew massive criticism over Dunham’s admission that she sexually abused her younger sister. Now, the star is under scrutiny for lying about her alleged rape experience. Daniel Dalton explains: Dunham, who is a spokesperson for Planned Parenthood, was interviewed on the Howard Stern Show when her book was released. On the show (before her rape story was thoroughly debunked), Dunham makes the statement that, “There was a big part of me that thought people...

    Liberals continuously need another crisis to fundamentally transform a country into a socialist “Brave New World.” And the more shocking and/or disturbing the better. People will not abandon their way of life unless convinced that the status quo is unacceptable. Lately, the left wing is frothing about a new crisis – a “rape culture.” There are many TV series showing how police will stop at nothing to put sex offenders behind bars. Mega-hit Law and Order created a spin-off television series S.V.U. devoted exclusively to prosecution of sex crimes. Yet activists insist that society is encouraging rape. Yet the Rolling...

    Lena Dunham and the federal government ain’t volunteering to advocate for rape victims; they would like compensation—in millions, please. Faceless and nameless men and women volunteer every day, all across the country, to counsel, shelter and heal sexual assault victims. Hollywood darling Lena Dunham is advocating for women too. But Dunham is neither offering women practical tools to deter rape nor taking a six-month sabbatical to volunteer at a woman’s shelter. She is offering a book, that women may purchase, containing her tale of rape. So, after contributing to Dunham’s coffer, a rape victim may read Dunham’s story in commiseration...

    My editor called and said, “Do a column on this Lena Dunham flap!” And I said... Actually, back up. What I did NOT say was, “Who the hell is Lena Dumbwhat?” I’m a 67-year-old guy. I live in rural New Hampshire. I don’t subscribe to US Weekly, assuming that still exists. I watch football, basketball, and hockey on TV and sometimes “The Bass Pros” on Outdoor Channel. The only Lena I know of is Lena Horne, a wonderful performer, who is not involved in any flaps, and who is also dead. But I’m a writer. That is, I was a...

    The problem with a victim culture is that so many people want to join the ranks of victimhood that eventually you run short of oppressors. As I say in my new book (personally autographed copies of which make a Christmas gift your loved one will cherish forever), Elizabeth Warren is the whitest white since Frosty the Snowman fell in a vat of Wite-Out, but a dubious claim to be one 32nd Cherokee was enough to persuade Harvard Law School to promote her as their first "woman of color". No wonder so many Democrats prefer her to Hillary: The first "woman...
  • Friends' accounts differ from alleged UVA gang rape victim's in article

    "CBS This Morning" has now spoken with the three friends of the victim of an alleged gang rape at a University of Virginia fraternity house who were mentioned in a Rolling Stone article. The magazine has admitted it had mistakes in the story. The accounts the friends gave to "CBS This Morning" were similar to each other, but very different from that of the victim, "Jackie," reports CBS News correspondent Julianna Goldman. The article said the friends saw and spoke to Jackie the night of the alleged assault. Alex, a third year student at UVA who asked we only use...

    The U.S. Department of Justice reporting on this topic is unscientific and irresponsible The U.S. Department of Justice has released a report entitled “Rape and Sexual Assault Victimization Among College-Age Females, 1995-2013,” and in light of the Rolling Stone and Lena Dunham controversies, the DOJ report is getting some media attention. But the report simply does not answer the question at hand, nor can it. Nor can any report. The public and policy makers are going to eventually need to understand that we will never, ever know the real rate of sexual assaults in any demographic group, never mind among...
  • Instead of Clearing Barry One's Name, Lena Dunham Talked about Being Goth, Eating Entire Chicken

    In the months since stating that someone named "Barry" raped her during her college years, Lena Dunham spoke about Michael Brown, being goth, eating entire chickens, and Planned Parenthood instead of clearing an innocent man's name. This also happened when "Barry One," the man wrongly implied to be the rapist, repeatedly contacted Dunham and her publisher to get them to clarify that he had nothing to do with the assault. Instead of helping an innocent man, on Twitter, Dunham found the time to write about inane subjects and make jokes. All the while, Barry One was being falsely accused of...

    RUSH: Look at this Lena Dunham situation. Lena Dunham, who was a heroine to the pop culture in this country, she's an absolute star. She's got this HBO show called Girls, so popular, so hip, so cool that Obama used her in a campaign commercial in the War on Women back in 2012. What is she, 17 years old? I know she's in her twenties. She's got an autobiography. Oh, yes, she has an autobiography. You know what the prominent event in her autobiography is? Yeah, she was raped by a conservative Republican. Right. She was raped by a conservative...

    Yesterday we covered the ongoing soap opera of the immensely unattractive and monumentally untalented Lena Dunham’s bogus rape accusation. Long story short: she accused a college classmate of raping her, she clearly identified the alleged rapist which has caused him a lot of difficulties, now her publisher is paying the man’s legal expenses and altering future editions of the book to emphasize that the name is a pseudonym. Basically, this is the type of careless and narcissistic behavior Dunham has raised to an art form. Now she takes to the friendly pages of journalistic paragon BuzzFeed to continue to push...

    In a story published on BuzzFeed, Lena Dunham slammed anyone who questioned the details of her alleged rape and implied that those who do are part of a massive conspiracy to further anti-woman agendas. The article, called "Why I Chose to Speak Out," slams anyone who questions her story. The fact that she accused someone of rape, she explains, means that her account is completely accurate and if you question it, you are a misogynist. In other words, accusing someone of rape is the equivalent of proving they raped you. Recounting her thoughts when writing a nationally-published book available to...
