Lena Dunham is the "Mattress Girl" of Hollywood. She desperately wants attention and victimhood and isn't above accusing a former college classmate of rape to achieve this status (and sell books):
Humiliated and facing a litigation nightmare, Random House paid the falsely accused College Republican’s legal fees after his lawyer complained. Stung and exposed, Dunham carped about conservative journalists who refused to cover up the real truth. She nursed her self-inflicted wounds by publishing a self-pitying diatribe on the liberal website Buzzfeed and posted a prominent Twitter selfie with runny mascara mimicking two black eyes.Does Dunham think she can write "women don't lie about rape" and then do a 180-degree pivot without inviting ridicule? I don't believe she thinks that far ahead; it's all about the buzz, that sweet, sweet "look at me" buzz. And if crying wolf means that some women are not believed when they claim Charlie Rose grabbed some thigh, well, that's a sacrifice she's willing to make.
