Since I was born on the wrong side of the tracks and then booted out of the house in my teens onto the tracks and forced to start running lest I get hit by a train, the fact that she was born into insane levels of wealth yet can’t shut the fuck up about being “oppressed” makes me wish that she would accidentally overdose on painkillers and wake up to find herself stewing in a cannibal’s pot somewhere in Swaziland where there is no iPhone coverage.I tried watching her show and within 5 minutes, I wanted personally hit every character in the face with a shovel. It is the lowest form of liberal hypocrisy: vain, stupid people with too much money thinking they are somehow oppressed. However Lena is an oppressor, as we find out in her own book.
In one passage from the book, Dunham describes an incident when she was seven and used her fingers to peel open one-year-old Grace’s vagina, only to find that the mischievous little sprout had hidden pebbles inside of it. Dunham claims that her mother didn’t blink at the fact that she was spreading open her younger sibling’s vadge because it “was within the spectrum of things that I did.” (Then again, her mom is an “artist” whose “work” consists of such things as photos of a nude mannequin with a dog, while her dad was known for painting giant hairy vaginas.)
Dunham continues about her not-at-all-rapey relationship with her younger sister:
As she 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 do to woo a small suburban girl I was trying.Charming. She's just but one of many women who are falling out favor with actual women who actually keep their brains in their heads instead of their va-jay-jays.
