This post isn’t about Lena Dunham… really. So many others, including The Frisky’s own Amelia, have written about Dunham, her book, and the passages about her sister that have led to claims of molestation. But, I’m writing this because of the conversation that’s currently being had about Lena Dunham, so we can’t not talk about… READ MORE »

Lena Dunham’s first book, Not That Kind Of Girl, is out today, and The Frisky staff is excited. If the book is anything like the writing she’s put out into the world so far, we can expect a smart and honest take on experiences that are so wildly universal that we’ll be scratching our heads wondering… READ MORE »

To promote her upcoming book, “Not That Kind Of Girl,” Lena Dunham released a series of “#AskLena” advice videos. Lena offers funny and insightful advice about bullies, feminism, friendship and other universal stresses.

I woke up this morning to a frantic slew of text messages from one of my best girlfriends – the Taylor Swift to my Lena Dunham – telling me to “WAKE UP, BABE.

“As a teenager, I didn’t understand that saying you’re a feminist is just saying that you hope women and men will have equal rights and equal opportunities. What it seemed to me, the way it was phrased in culture, society, was that you hate men. And, now, I think a lot of girls have had… READ MORE »

Called Strange Desire,… READ MORE »

Lena Dunham graced “Late Night with Seth Meyers” with an interpretive dance to Sia’s “Chandelier.” Complete with a blonde wig, Lena offered her own hilarious take on the song’s music video while Sia just kinda chilled out face down on a bed onstage. Can Lena do a dance like this to every hit song? Something tells… READ MORE »

Does it make you feel better or worse to know Lena Dunham’s butt is bleeding from a dog bite and not a monthly visit from Aunt Flo gone wrong?

Ross Mathews wondered the same thing on “Hello Ross,” so he presented us with this spoof in which Dorothy (played by Jackie Beat) says some choice words to Hannah Horvath that we’ve all longed to say ourselves.

Lena Dunham said something smart (again) about Dylan Farrow’s accusations against Woody Allen: “I’m decidedly pro-Dylan Farrow and decidedly disgusted with Woody Allen’s behavior. But for me, when people go through his work and come through it for references to child molestation, that’s not the fucking point. I’m not comfortable living in a world… READ MORE »

He’s been making me!” She quickly deleted the tweet and then… READ MORE »
