The conservative weekly put Dunham on the cover of its Nov. 3 edition, with a very long headline that begins: “Kevin D. Williamson on the Pathetic Privilege of Lena Dunham,” and includes a series of feeling words, plus “Brooklyn” and “Oberlin.”
The accompanying article by Williamson rambles for two-and-a-half pages about how Dunham has been to Brooklyn, goes shopping, wrote a book and also is a disgusting fat woman — not, like, Craig, Colo. fat, but definitely Hollywood fat. She also reportedly has opinions.
The article is behind a paywall. But we have an old-fashioned print copy and are pleased to present a one-off feature, National Review’s “Lena Dunham Is The Worst” Article By The Numbers.
18: Total number of paragraphs in the story. National Review likes very, very long paragraphs.
2: Paragraphs about Dunham’s body.
5: Locations referenced when debating whether Dunham is fat.
1: Photos of Dunham eating cake accompanying the article.
7: Number of paragraphs Williamson uses to describe Dunham’s sex and dating life.
10: Explicit references to Dunham’s, Dunham’s infant sister’s, or Dunham’s mother’s genitals, as part of a three-paragraph section about Dunham’s “sexual abuse” of her sister as supposedly written in her book, “Not That Kind of Girl.”
5: Paragraphs Williamson uses to say that Dunham is a false-rape-accuser.
1: Bizarrely out-of-place references to the “surprising number of anecdotes from Palestinian fundraisers” in Dunham’s book.
6: Appearances of the phrase “voice of a generation” or variations of it (is she or isn’t she?).
1: Paragraphs about Dunham’s shopping habits.
