Lena Dunham has a bone to pick with the media.
The actress hates it when they say unkind things about her favorite neocon, Hillary Clinton, the woman who may never be nominated because she faces indictment for compromising the national security of the United States.
“The way that Hillary Clinton’s been talked about in the media is so gendered and rabidly sexist in every single portrayal,” she said during an interview at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, this week.
“I literally want to make a list that we hand to media outlets that says, ‘These are the words you can’t use when describing a female candidate: shrill, inaccessible, difficult, frumpy, plastic,’” Dunham said. “There’s just a list of words that if we were allowed to talk about male candidates like that, I’d have a f–king field day. I’d enjoy my life so much.”
Of course, there’s a double standard when it comes to male candidates, for instance Donald Trump:
