Lena Dunham Says It’s ‘Okay to Grab ‘Em by the Pussy’ in These Five Scenarios

Most people agree that Donald Trump‘s comments about women that were caught on tape were offensive. He bragged about sexual assault and said that if you’re famous, you can do anything to women- including “grabing ’em by the pussy.” Lena Dunham agrees, generally. She told People that Trump’s comments were “shocking,” adding, “Those comments aren’t just about women — they were about everyone whose body is treated like the property of other people.”

“To hear someone in a position of power, in the race for the highest office in the land, to say something that is so distinctly violent, and so distinctly abusive — I think it creates a lot of fear and a lot of sort of pain in the public consciousness that we’re going to be dealing with for a long time.”

Today, however, in her newsletter, LennyLetter, she acknowledged that there are five times it’s perfectly okay to “grab ’em by the pussy.” We’re inclined to agree with her. Here’s one scenario.

A woman named Pussy is hosting a fancy cocktail party to celebrate her husband’s retirement. Her best friend from childhood, Bunny, shows up in an effort to make peace after a terrible fight at the country club. Pussy is wearing three strands of pearls and refuses to speak to Bunny. She simply walks away, so a desperate Bunny grabs Pussy. ‘Pussy, we must talk!’

Hard to argue with that logic. Also, this.

A teenage girl is chasing her cat Henrietta down Main Street. Henrietta has run away for the millionth time because she is a bad cat! The teenage girl is wearing high-heeled Timberland’s like J. Lo wore in the “Jenny From the Block” video so she can’t run very fast at all. She sees a nice, non-threatening businessman in a air of maroon New Balance. ‘Sir, would you please run and grab my pussy!?’

That’s definitely okay, too.
