Lena Dunham’s Republican Rapist Story Collapses Under Scrutiny

In her just-released memoir, Not That Kind of Girl, Lena Dunham describes her alma mater, Oberlin College, as “a liberal arts haven in the cornfields of Ohio.” After a month-long investigation that included more than a dozen interviews, a trip to the Oberlin campus, and hours spent pouring through the Oberlin College archives, her description of the campus remains the only detail Breitbart News was able to verify in Dunham’s story of being raped by a campus Republican named Barry.

    Judging from those pictures, Dunham has her saddlebags packed, and she’s ready to do battle.

  • Frau Katze

    She didn’t report it to the police. Not now, not then. She sounds crazy, IMO.

    • AmicusC

      if it didn’t get reported it never happened.

      • Frau Katze

        No, that’s not what I mean. But it’s one more thing that makes her story seem odd.

  • SDMatt

    There’s drunk and then there’s really drunk.

    But there’s no way anyone got THAT drunk.

    • Nick Fisher

      Actually SDMatt, I might have to contradict you there…. 🙁

        I agree I had to stop a friend from going home with something much worse than that one time.

        I’m waiting for some guy to come out and tell his side of the story; of course given how the feminazis love this nut they would tear him apart for his alleged “rape by regret”

  • Nick Fisher

    I do seriously think this woman has mental health issues. She deserves our sympathy (well, a little bit anyways) and should be strongly urged to seek treatment…

    • Frau Katze

      I’m having trouble working up sympathy. She sounds hateful, a thoroughly unpleasant person.

  • David Murrell

    Good investigative pice by the ever-reliable Breitbart News. Everyone should read this article, as an example about how our liberal-left media cartel (including Random House) readily accepts junk writing as fact.

  • AmicusC

    while I do appreciate the debunking of this vile creature, can we please do without accompanying pics? my eyes they burn!

    • JoKeR

      You don’t want to arouse her wrath!

      Didn’t you know she is a part-time super heroine? She goes by the super heroine name Thunder Thighs!

  • Pete_Brewster

    The only lurid tale of sex crime worth believing coming from Lena Dunham is the one about how she abused her sister. Or did she make that up too just to pad out her book?

  • moraywatson

    It seems that Lena Dunham only dreamt about being raped, and was not actually raped, but so what? I mean being raped in a dream is still traumatic, is it not? Dream rape is becoming a huge problem in the world today, and it needs to be stopped. Just the other day a young muslima in Kuala Lumpur dreamt she was going to be gang raped if she ran off and joined the ISIS jihadis as a sex slave, and that was front page news in Malaysia. The muslima and Lena Dunham should get together and form a support group.

    she’s gone pear shaped

  • Hard Little Machine

    I’ve come to the completely arbitrary conclusion she’s a clinically paranoid narcissist.

  • Bataviawillem

    False rape claims don’t matter, because real rape occurs.

    • Alain

      Well they certainly do matter for those men wrongly accused, especially since there are no consequences for those making false accusations. I certainly agree however that real rape does matter and should never be tolerated.

      • Frau Katze

        I think he’s being sarcastic.

        • Alain

          I wasn’t sure but didn’t want to let it go by in case it wasn’t.

  • David

    A comely lass she aint.

  • Xanthippa Socrates

    She says she was raped by a ‘Barry’ – did Obama ever pose as a Republican?

    • That’s what I say.

    • Frau Katze

      Strange coincidence!

  • Edubeat

    Hey Lena D. its Harvey Brooker time!

  • BTW, this Sopie Hess, who says she’s manager of Oberlin Campus radio station WOBC and refused to cooperate with the Breitbart reporter on the grounds that “I’m not psyched to help you do this” and thinks that “Asking whether or not a victim is telling the truth is irrelevant… It’s just not important if they are telling the truth”…. here she is: http://thinkprogress.org/health/2013/09/18/2642591/college-activists-playboy-rape-culture/

    This is the bitch who is obstructing a journalistic investigation into rape and/or defamation/slander. The police should be involved.

  • Petrilla

    Don’t buy the book and rejoice when it’s in the remainered pile for a buck, on its way to be shredded. That will be karma.

    • I think her career’s over at this point. Don’t worry, though. She can always fall back on daddy’s money and connections.
