Although Lena Dunham didn’t pose for the cover of the National Review or give the conservative publication an interview, they wrote a cover story about the actress and called her rape revelation “a gutless and passive-agressive act”.

Even though this is not the first time similar accusations have been pointed at the 28-year-old actress, writer and director, the author of the story Pathetic Priviledge, Kevin Williamson, took things to another level.
‘’As a literary stratagem — laying down a marker in the popular culture without making herself vulnerable to accusations that she might be taking herself too seriously — the maneuver is transparent…. Specifically, she uses it in her memoir to accuse a man of rape without having to take responsibility for the accusation.”
