Lena Dunham Did Not 'Sexually Abuse' Her Sister, Society Did

Lena Dunham stands accused of 'sexually abusing' her younger sister... at the time, Dunham was an inquisitive seven-year-old and her sister, Grace, was just a baby. They both defend the act as completely normal, which - as someone who was also a sexually-curious seven-year-old can attest - it is.

Let's get real here. I'm not a fan of Lena Dunham but she's not a child molester. Children explore their bodies and sexuality at different ages and Lena shouldn't be criticized for this. It's clear her sister isn't bothered by these accusations either.

I'll admit I was a little late to the Girls party. But once I arrived, I partied HARD, watching all three seasons in the space of a week. The finale marked a Lena Dunham-shaped hole in my life, which I have partially filled with her new autobiography Not That Kind of Girl, but by and large I remain pining for season 4 to hit our screens next year.

How to Banish Anxiety From Your Life, in Five Easy Steps

Louise Gillett | Posted 16.12.2014 | UK Lifestyle

I began to feel the worry as a physical sensation - it would start as a warning prickle in the top of my head and then spread like fire until it extended all across my scalp. This, I supposed, was a panic attack - but there was little I could do to stop it. As time went on, anxiety morphed into paranoia - the attacks happened more and more frequently, and the fear of them happening became all-encompassing, almost as bad as the symptoms themselves.

Body Confidence Matters

Apparently, we see 1500 advertisements a day featuring people whose body shape in no way represents our own. This make us feel inferior. On a daily basis, we think we're failing to look as we should. And this does not make us feel good. It's not a trivial issue. If we feel bad about how we look, we make bad choices about our health; we are more likely to be depressed.

Do Judge a Vogue by its Cover

To your everyday woman, perhaps not accustomed to a life of airbrushed perfection, it can be just a fairly dispiriting, potentially bruising, high gloss, fashion mag. But, I'm convinced that it's supposed to represent more than that. Step forward Lena Dunham.

Don't Call Lena Dunham a Genius

Jennifer Howze | Posted 22.03.2014 | UK Entertainment
Jennifer Howze

Ultimately the biggest problem with invoking that word is that it allows the media and us to pop her up onto the pedestal entitled "Woman Describing the Modern Female Experience" then return to our regular lives. We don't have to listen to other women with alternative experiences because, look, we've already got that one over there and see how much we idolise her?
