Lena Dunham Is Sorry She Described Herself As A Sexual Predator

*takes swig of scotch* Alright, let’s talk about little kids getting touched again. Goddammit…

While most sane and rational people understand that Lena Dunham isn’t a child molester, even liberal feminists would agree parts of her book contain some fucked up shit even if it was taken completely out of context by a right-wing, homophobic shitbag of a site. And now Lena Dunham is apologizing for said fucked up shit and conceding her comedic observations about her childhood are insensitive which is how comedy works, but at this point, whatever. TIME reports:

Childhood sexual abuse is a life-shattering event for so many, and I have been vocal about the rights of survivors. If the situations described in my book have been painful or triggering for people to read, I am sorry, as that was never my intention. I am also aware that the comic use of the term “sexual predator” was insensitive, and I’m sorry for that as well.
As for my sibling, Grace, she is my best friend, and anything I have written about her has been published with her approval.

Now usually when the roles are reversed, this is the part where the right wing screams, “Whatever happened to f’eedom a speech?!” because someone gave apology, and yet notice that’s not happening. Also notice that nobody’s saying Lena Dunham’s been censored because she hasn’t. Everybody’s freeze speech is intact. Conservatives got to say their stupid shit, liberals got to say their stupid shit, Lena Dunham got to say her stupid shit, and the government didn’t shoot anyone in the dick for saying stupid shit. So for the next five minutes let’s pretend that’s a lesson that anyone learned before the next stupid shit happens. I’ll even set a stupid shit timer.
