The blog, Truth Revolt, posted an article entitled “Lena Dunham Describes Sexually Abusing Her Little Sister” and cited a passage from Dunham’s new book, Not That Kind Of Girl.
“The right wing news story that I molested my little sister isn’t just LOL- it’s really fucking upsetting and disgusting,” Dunham tweeted Saturday night. “Usually this is stuff I can ignore but don’t demean sufferers, don’t twist my words, back the f**k up bros.”
Dunham explained, “I told a story about being a weird 7 year old. I bet you have some too, old men, that I’d rather not hear. And yes, this is a rage spiral.”
She added, “Sometimes I get so mad I burn right up. Also I wish my sister wasn’t laughing so hard.”
In her book, the Girls star shared a memory from her childhood in which she found pebbles in her one-year-old sister’s vagina. Dunham wrote, “I leaned down between her legs and carefully spread open her vagina. She didn’t resist and when I saw what was inside I shrieked. My mother came running. ‘Mama, Mama! Grace has something in there!’ My mother didn’t bother asking why I had opened Grace’s vagina. This was within the spectrum of things I did. She just on her knees and looked for herself. It quickly became apparent that Grace had stuffed six or seven pebbles in there. My mother removed them patiently while Grace cackled, thrilled that her prank had been a success.”
