Do you know who runs the world? Well, if you are to believe the gospel of Beyonce (and many people do), it's girls. Socially and economically, this thesis is slightly flawed. In some circles though, this could be considered true. In fact it is, and I've experienced it.

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.
