Trigger warning: This post deals with child sexual assault and may be triggering for some readers.
Lena Dunham’s sister Grace has broken her silence over allegations the Girls actress molested her when the two were children.
The explosive claims were made by a blogger on conservative American website Truth Revolt, which focused on a passage from Lena’s new book Not That Kind of Girl.
In a series of messages on Twitter, Grace Dunham wrote: “heteronormativity deems certain behaviours harmful, and others “normal”; the state and media are always invested in maintaining that.
“As a queer person: I’m committed to people narrating their own experiences, determining for themselves what has and has not been harmful,” she wrote.
“2day, like every other day, is a good day to think about how we police the sexualities of young women, queer, and trans people”.

The internet can be an ugly place.Last week, it was a little more ugly than usual when a child sex abuse allegation was casually thrown at a high-profile young woman by a ‘right-wing’ website. The victim of her alleged abuse? Her one year old sister.
Last week, a self-described conservative American website, Truth Revolt, accused 28 year old writer and star of tv show, Girls, Lena Dunham of admitting to child sex abuse in her collection of non-fiction essays, Not That Kind of Girl.
