Lena Dunham recalls of her sister, from Jessica Derschowitz, CBS News :
“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.”
Dunham, 28, fired back on Twitter over the weekend, calling the claims “upsetting and disgusting.”
I very much doubt that Lena Dunham is aware of it, or if aware thinks anything wrong with it, but she in effect has accused her younger sister of being a whore,in that her sister accepted money and favors in exchange for sexual acts. Not that there is anything wrong with that.
The story is Lena Dunham’s. I’d think that the older Dunham would owe her sister an apology. The story, whether true or not, is that of the older Dunham sister. The editorial response to the Dunham story is in the public arena.
Addendum: Libtards reaction, from Emanuella Grinberg, CNN :
(CNN) — Lena Dunham canceled several appearances to promote her new book after a self-described “rage spiral” over allegations that she molested her sister as a child.
The allegations stem from passages in Dunham’s collection of personal essays, “Not That Kind of Girl,” in which she describes sexually experimenting with her younger sister as a child. In one essay, she describes bribing her sister with three pieces of candy to kiss her on the lips for five seconds. She also describes probing her 1-year-old sister’s vagina when she was 7 out of curiosity over how it compared to hers.
“One day, as I sat in our driveway in Long island playing blocks and buckets, my curiosity got the better of me. Grace was sitting up, babbling and smiling, and I leaned down between her legs and carefully spread open her vagina,” she writes in the book.
Kevin D. Williamson — known for taking hard-right positions that stir controversy — seized upon the passages in a column for conservative publication National Review.
Specifically, he accused Dunham’s parents of enabling “disturbing behavior that would be considered child abuse in many jurisdictions…sexual abuse, specifically, of her younger sister, Grace, the sort of thing that gets children taken away from nonmillionaire families without Andover pedigrees and Manhattanite social connections.”
Hint to CNN, when the source of the allegations is the same as the accused, it is a not an allegation but rather a confession. It appears that Lena Dunham was (is?) to stupid too understand the public reaction to what she wrote.
