As if current 60/40 female-to-male student body ratios didn’t make it hard enough for college women to find future husband material, schools’ dating policies and rape courts may bring to an end dating for coeds, at least with young men attending the same school. The final nail in the coffin may be the reaction to Lena Dunham’s fictional memoir that has received acclaim from such sources as Time magazine, whose Eliana Dockterman blared, “Lena Dunham’s Story of Rape Is a Must-Read.” For those of you unfamiliar with the portly Dunham, the supposed voice of Generation Y, as I was, she is the star of a cable TV show titled “Girls” in which she’s known for taking off her clothes at random times, revealing, besides tattoos, a body that excites few men.
The supposed rape scene Dunham shared as being true starts, “Barry leads me to the parking lot. I tell him to look away. I pull down my tights to pee, and he jams a few of his fingers inside me, like he’s trying to plug me up. I’m not sure whether I can’t stop it or I don’t want to.” I can’t imagine any sane man sticking his hand into her black hole of Calcutta intentionally to get it pissed on unless he is as drunk and high on Xanax and cocaine as she claimed to be and that is a huge stretch. That she claims “Barry” hurt two of her acquaintances with, one assumes based on her complaints, of too-hard sex. I ask you, would a guy who’s able to readily bed other young women stoop to letting her pee on him if he was in his right mind? I think not.
Would a guy who thought he had any kind of future in front of him risk being called a rapist as so many college men are today? Many men will find dating townies or girls from other schools more prudent than risking being brought up to a campus kangaroo court on rape charges for fraternizing with coeds from their own school. Real-life “Barry,” whose name is actually Barry, says he didn’t even know Dunham, only learned of her after having friends tell him he was accused of raping this bimbo. He has hired an attorney and Dunham’s publisher is inserting a statement in future printings that characters in the book are fictional.
