Lena Dunham: Believe All Rape Accusers, Except for This Slut Accusing My Buddy

Nuance. Apparently "Believe All Accusations" really just means "Believe All Accusations made against people we don't like."

Lena Dunham has issued a statement in support of a former writer on her show "Girls" who was accused of rape Friday by a young actress named Aurora Perrineau. Perrineau claims she met producer and writer Murray Miller in 2012 when she was just 17-years-old. Friday, the Wrap reported that Perrineau had reported her allegation to police in Los Angeles...

The accused denies and suggests, through a lawyer, this is a money-play, and the accuser says she passed a polygraph.

So, I have no idea on who's telling the truth here.

But Lena Dunham does:

During the windfall of deeply necessary accusations over the last few months in Hollywood, we have been thrilled to see so many women’s voices heard and dark experiences in this industry justified. It's a hugely important time of change and, like every feminist in Hollywood and beyond, we celebrate. But during every time of change there are also incidences of the culture, in its enthusiasm and zeal, taking down the wrong targets. We believe, having worked closely with him for more than half a decade, that this is the case with Murray Miller. While our first instinct is to listen to every woman's story, our insider knowledge of Murray’' situation makes us confident that sadly this accusation is one of the 3 percent of assault cases that are misreported every year. It is a true shame to add to that number, as outside of Hollywood women still struggle to be believed. We stand by Murray and this is all we’ll be saying about this issue.

I'm old enough to remember when Lena Dunham said women do not lie about rape, because I'm old enough to have been alive this past August:



It's pretty interesting that women never lie about rape, until her friend gets accused, and then she allows that 3% of rape charges are "misreported" (apparently not falsely reported -- just misreported).

See John Sexton's link for the fall-out, including Lena Dunham being accused of racism because the accuser is biracial.

She's now also retracted back her statement, saying she regrets with every fiber of her being, and that's a lot of fiber.



As Kurt Schlicter says: You're gonna hate the new rules, which are really the old rules you've long pushed, now being applied to you.

Also see Sexton's piece about Mika Brzezinski stating flatly that Hillary Clinton needs to Shut the F*** Up about sexual harassment until her husband (and, presumably, she herself) admit to their own crimes.

Oh, and the Women of SNL have written a letter praising and defending serial groper Al Franken.

He groped another woman, too - Arianna Huffington, during a photo shoot.
