Lena Dunham slams media for ‘rabidly sexist’ portrayal of Hillary Clinton BY Peter Sblendorio NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Monday, January 25, 2016, 9:46 AM Sitcom creator Lena Dunham is standing up to the “rabidly sexist” media coverage of one of her main "Girls," Hillary Clinton. The outspoken comedian is specifically enraged by the repeated use of code words such as "shrill,” “inaccessible” and “frumpy" to describe the Democratic front-runner — and she’s pushing for a ban on the word crimes. "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,'" Dunham told Variety. Charles Sykes/Invision/AP Lena Dunham wants to create a list of words that the media can’t use when describing female candidates. The Millennial messenger claims that Clinton is under scrutiny not typically experienced by male candidates. "The way that Hillary Clinton's been talked about in the media is so gendered and rabidly sexist in every single portrayal," she said. "Whether it's the attacks on her personal life or the adjectives that are used to describe her clothing, we have to do a full reexamination." It is unclear if Dunham is referring to anything new in the current campaign that differs from the three decades that Clinton has been grilled by the media. Clinton’s physical appearance — namely her hair and wardrobe of suits — has long been a topic of discussion. Dunham has been campaigning for Hillary Clinton since the start of the month. That said, coverage of male candidates is often just as empty. Donald Trump's hair and Chris Christie's weight are regularly discussed in the media, and Marco Rubio's heeled boots briefly garnered more attention than his policy proposals earlier this month. Rick Perry, meanwhile, was the target of a Trump tirade last summer when the bombastic millionaire claimed the Texas governor only wore glasses to appear smart. Hey y'all! I made it to New Hampshire and I'm thrilled to be taking over the HRC Instagram! Warning: I'm pretty focused on my outfits. #Imwithher -Lena A photo posted by Hillary Clinton (@hillaryclinton) on Jan 8, 2016 at 11:39am PST But Dunham doesn't think they have it nearly as bad as Clinton. "If we were allowed to talk about male candidates (the same way), I'd have a f--king field day," she told the magazine. Dunham, 29, is often proclaimed as a voice for millennials and women, thanks largely for her portrayal of a typical 20-something girl on her hit HBO series, "Girls." She has been campaigning for Clinton since the beginning of the year. And on Jan. 8, she took over the Clinton campaign Instagram account with a picture of herself in a patriotic striped ensemble. “Warning,” Dunham posted, “I’m pretty focused on my outfits.” The very next post after Clinton’s team regained control of the feed highlighted Clinton’s look in a pantsuit.
