Lena Dunham: Keep Her Away From Children

The severity of Lena Dunham’s words were not truly evident to me until this morning.

When I saw the photo she posted of her little sister Grace, about a year ago, and the comment she made about the photo on Instagram, I feel she is a danger to children.

The photo shows the five year-old child with make-up, fake breasts, and “bad girl” written on her shirt. Dunham writes about the photo: “that time I dressed my 5 year old sister as a Hell’s Angel’s sex property #1997”


In case she removes the photo from Instagram, it is also here:


Then I re-read this sentence from Dunham’s book, describing the times she shared a bed with the child (in which Dunham masturbated next to her):

“I shared a bed with my sister, Grace, until I was seventeen years old,” Dunham wrote in Not That Kind of Girl. “She was afraid to sleep alone and would begin asking me around 5:00 P.M. every day whether she could sleep with me… Her sticky, muscly little body thrashed beside me every night as I read Anne Sexton, watched reruns of SNL, sometimes even as I slipped my hand into my underwear to figure some stuff out.”

Figure what out? If you are a child molester, or attracted to children in a sexual way?

Then I re-read this paragraph:

“Do we all have uteruses?” I asked my mother when I was seven. “Yes,” she told me. “We’re born with them, and with all our eggs, but they start out very small. And they aren’t ready to make babies until we’re older.” I look at my sister, now a slim, tough one-year-old, and at her tiny belly. I imagined her eggs inside her, like the sack of spider eggs in Charlotte’s Web, and her uterus, the size of a thimble.”

“Tiny belly,” “slim,” “sticky, muscly little body, thrashing beside me…” Words of a pedophile?

You decide:

“Grace was sitting up, babbling and smiling, and I leaned down between her legs and carefully spread open her vagina. She didn’t resist…”

Lena Dunham: Child Molester?

Lena Dunham:

Dunham titled her book, “Not That Kind of Girl.” I think she is indeed that kind of girl, and this woman should never be allowed around children.

    Excellent comments on this, Alethea.
    Just looking into this a little further and wondering if this may be some kind of attempt by Hollywood insiders or others to ‘fly a kite’ and try and present this sort of female on female experimentation/child abuse as a sort of new ‘you go girl’ sexual expression. Since it’s inception, Hollywood has always been a big centre of child sexual abuse and exploitation (see http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Casting-Couch-Selwyn-Ford/dp/0586203869 and others). Also, of course, if this woman comes from any kind of ‘Hollywood’ family, the whole business may be well be inter-generational.
    This ‘kite flying’ about child sexual abuse is nothing new. None other than the previous Catholic Pope, Benedict XVI, said, in 2010, that pedophilia was theorised as “fully in conformity with man (woman) and even children” and “nothing is good or bad in itself” in Catholic theology. And I know for sure that this upsets some people but it’s a matter of media record – see
    http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/world-news/popes-child-porn-normal-claim-sparks-outrage-among-victims-28577483.html and other sources. The so-called “normalisation” of child sexual abuse is not a new agenda.
    Anyway, I’m probably ‘over-speculating’, but all I’m saying is that I don’t think this could have got into print and had the media legs it has had without other people apart from Lena Dunham being behind and supporting it.

      Kevin, Quoting the article you gave:

      I do not know the context in which Ratzinger (whom you consider Pope Benedict) meant by “paedophilia wasn’t considered an “absolute evil” as recently as the 1970s.” If I were to guess, he meant that the mental disorder of pedophilia is not an absolute evil if the person does not act on their pedophilia. Remember that pedophilia is the sexual attraction to per-pubescent children. It becomes child sexual abuse or molestation when the person crosses the line to the act of abuse (or in Dunham’s case, masturbating next to a child). However, I do not consider Ratzinger (Benedict) a true pope anyway, as I have tried countless times to explain to you –that he and Vatican Two are a bunch of wolves in sheep’s clothing.

      “In his traditional Christmas address yesterday to cardinals and officials working in Rome, Pope Benedict XVI also claimed that child pornography was increasingly considered “normal” by society….In the 1970s, paedophilia was theorised as something fully in conformity with man and even with children,”

      and what did he mean here, in full context? That much of society considers it normal? Much of society DOES, as they allow it in many forms. He said “society” considers it normal, this is basically true. Look at child pageants, top-name clothing designer’s use of it in their advertisements, and the way many mothers allow their little girls to parade around looking like hookers. Look at what Dunham did to her five year-old sister in that photo…child pornography, and Dunham’s Instagram friends sure considered it normal.

      “It was maintained — even within the realm of Catholic theology — that there is no such thing as evil in itself or good in itself. There is only a ‘better than’ and a ‘worse than’. Nothing is good or bad in itself.”

      What context did he mean here? Where in the writings or speech did this fit in? Was it a general statement about good and evil, or was it in direct connection with child pornography or pedophilia? Which Catholic Theology is he referring to? Vatican Two’s version of things? Or TRUE Catholic theology? What could he have meant? Maybe that all things, good and bad, are seen on a different level in the Heavenly realm.

      My diseases and the incest were a Blessing in disguise for me. One might consider them “bad” but to me, they brought me back to God, and helped me awaken and to help others.

      One person might consider a murderer “bad” but God sees the heart, and might feel otherwise. Some murderers are more moral than mainstream society “good” people who sit in the front row of the church to look good, and then go have an abortion like it was birth-control, and do so with the full support of the law.

      A so-called “good” person in the eyes of society, often is a most evil person in their thoughts and judgements, in their self-rightousness, or in their lack of truth and lack of love for God, but they outwardly show themselves to be upstanding citizens and everyone likes them tremendously.

      “That is not normal. I don’t know what company the Pope has been keeping for the past 50 years.”

      i don’t know either, but when Vatican Two took over 60 years ago, they opened up the windows to the smoke of Satan (their own admission).

      To truly know the context of Ratzinger’s words, and thus, the meaning of his words…I would need to see the original document, not just the quotes here.

      Those words from the Telegraph were a clever manipulation of Pope Benedict’s words to say things that were not part of his original intent. I wish I had time to spend on a thoughtful, line-by-line refutation of the Telegraph piece, and your comments; however, I am in grad school nearing my final exams (with two papers and two clinical days per week looming), and don’t have much time to spare.

      (By the way, I am putting myself through nurse practitioner school. Many years ago I was offered a scholarship to pre-med school, and my father refused to sign the papers…that struck the final blow in the killing of my soul…so I can’t get too distracted, and I must stay focused on the goal. I still won’t be a doctor, but it is the most reasonable facsimile that I could hope for, and the closest to what I was meant to be….)

      • Alethea says:

        I find it really hypocritical of the media, and some of the general public, who jump at any chance to tear down any priest or Catholicism, but when Lena Dunham openly admits to having been a child molester, she is virtually defended by the media and many of those who love her HBO show.

  2. Grace says:

    When I read the articles about Lena Dunham posted on this blog, I was shocked. As time went on, I began to feel tunnel-vision nausea. Thinking about this woman makes me physically ill. She has written a book about exploiting her family (and for what? Attention and money). In this book, I believe that Lena Dunham is trying to show herself as a “hip” and “quirky” cool kid (that is her whole media persona, with the green hair and tattoos). It seems to me that she is trying to be candid in order to make incest normal and mainstream, taking a bragging stance to say, “LOL I was such a messed up kid but look at me now!!!” It’s revolting.

    She is so quick to mention how her sister, Grace, is her best friend and even refers to her as an “extension of [herself]” in a NYTimes article. So, this notion of boundaries, or lack thereof, is something Lena Dunham has not LEARNED (despite the subtitle of her book, which refers to the things she has learned in life). I read an article where Grace, Lena’s lesbian sister, shares that Lena “outed” her to their parents. She says “Without getting into specifics, most of our fights have revolved around my feeling like Lena took her approach to her own personal life and made my personal life her property.” This paints Lena as a self-important, entitled brat. The fact that the media has turned her into a young media darling the past few years obviously hasn’t helped this in any way. Yet she defends herself saying that anything she published was done with her sister’s consent. I find that very hard to believe. Maybe her sister was scared or intimidated to say no. Lena seems to think herself invincible.

    Lena’s little sister Grace would beg her to be allowed to sleep in the same bed because she was “scared”. The power dynamic between the two sisters is obvious here. Grace, as I also did as a child, was relying on the big sister to keep her safe. But I was also abused by my older sister and it was not curiosity or exploration, but rather abuse that almost ruined my entire life. I’m still working and healing on many levels from this.

    I question if Lena was also abused herself. As a child, that may have been what motivated her. But as an adult, she knows it’s wrong, even saying her methods of luring her sister were the same as a sexual predator would use. She says there was a “spectrum of things” she did to her sister…so she only published the tame things, who knows what else she did?! My heart goes out to her sister who suffers from the abuse, in one form or another, and maybe the abuse is the direct cause of her thinking she is lesbian (she may be sexually confused, but feels pressured to “come out” to please her feminist sister who wishes she herself were gay). Lena Dunham is an adult, a pervert, and has impacted her little sister for the rest of her life.

    Their father, Carroll Dunham, has painted female genitalia in multiple works, so maybe this obsession runs in the family. Check out http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Hollywood/2014/11/03/Lena-Dunhams-Father
    to see some of his work.

    I am revolted that Lena Dunham is conceited about her own past of perpetuating abuse. She should be ashamed of herself and seek therapy to figure out what was going on “behind the scenes” to make her claim ownership over another person, a baby’s, body. My heart goes out to the sister, who I also hope seeks treatment.

    • Alethea says:


      I am so happy you have voiced your concerns and opinion.

      You are right on when you noticed that Lena’s little sister Grace, would need to sleep with Lena because she was scared. Remember Lena tried to trick her with fear to get the child to trust her.

      Thank you for speaking so openly about the abuse you endured by your sister.

      The more I read about Lena’s comments, and the dynamics between the two sisters, Grace is probably a “false lesbian” so-to-speak. I think Grace was highly confused in her mind and body by Lena, from one year-old, to whenever they stopped sleeping in the same bed….THAT alone, could have confused the younger child into thinking she is a lesbian. Two females sleeping together for years and years in an intimate place and when the older teen is masturbating next to the younger one on many occasions in that bed, and when she has also -at the very least- done to the child what she has openly admitted to.. Whoa! Why on earth did these two want this stuff public? Maybe it was just Lena that wanted it public, but she is a degenerate….really….to tell the world in a book, how she masturbated next to her little sister? WHO DOES THAT?

      Yes, Lena Dunham might also have been sexually abused, but that is NEVER an excuse to turn around and do it to another child. I believe the conscious will of a person enters them at age seven, and certainly a teenager knows what she is doing. It is hypocritical when an abused person turns and abuses another person.

      I too hope Lena seeks therapy, but the media, and many mental health experts are defending her. They have made this woman out to be perfectly normal, and nearly encouraging child sexual “play” and have virtually celebrated the notion of a woman going public with her degeneracy, lack of principles, and lack of personal dignity.

      Someone needs to tell Lena she needs help, or she will think she is perfectly fine and she will believe that everyone who criticizes her is are the ones with the problem.

      The whole “she’s-an-extension-of-myself” thing is actually *textbook narcissist behavior.” Look it up.

      She is an insult not only to a whole generation, but to a whole gender. I hope she winds up publicly shunned for her sheer sociopathy. Not a big chance of that, maybe, but we can dream, can’t we?
