It's disappointing that this story got so much attention when the purpose was more about attacking and demeaning an individual than attempting to help a victim of abuse. I hope that Lena is strong enough to move past this and come out a stronger person.
This week's attacks on Dunham show that many in the media are not quite as enlightened in their ability to allow female writers to have ownership over their own narratives. By questioning Dunham's agency to decide what's worth talking about and shaming her for not being ashamed of herself, they are missing the purpose of her work.

Herein lies the rub. I have a confession to make: I have a very conflicted relationship with Lena Dunham.
What women don't like is men having sex with us who are doing it badly by only considering themselves. Bad sex is defined differently for every woman, but it begins with not having a voice when you're naked with a man.
The Internet gives users immense power to affect the welfare of others. Malicious use of that power, such as the recent theft and release of nude photos of female celebrities, confronts users with a perplexing question: Does that power have moral boundaries?
