    Oh, for sure.

    Her whole act is, "I'm a huge slut!"

    Kid makes a joke that implies she's a huge slut.

    She gets pissed.

    Something about her routine I find more uneasy than amusing.

    It would be like making a joke about Lena Dunham molesting children ages 1 to 13.

    How could she possibly get mad about that when she uses it as hilarious comedic material?

    Hi, Lena Dunham Fixation, Dick!

    OTOH, it's one thing to call yourself a dick or whore or whatever. Doesn't mean you like other people calling you that.

    If there's anything that really gets my blood boiling, it's when a powerful woman tries to destroy and shame less powerful women who have been victimized, and had the gall to speak up:

    "What has always been amazing to me is that she purports to be a feminist and yet only steals from other female comedians. If we call her on it we are "jealous" or career shamed. Be successful. WE want you to do well, just do it will your own material.BTW she blocked me."

    You can't claim to be a feminist it you do that!

    No fixation here. I think the analogy is very apt. Lena Dunham, who is the face of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's campaign, made several jokes about molesting her sister over the course of a decade-plus, in her memoir. It would be slightly hypocritical for Lena Dunham, last seen sporting a wide variety of custom-made Hillary Clinton-themed sweaters as she took to the campaign stump in Iowa and New Hampshire, to get pissy when someone else picked up the joke and ran with it.

    We, as a nation, need an honest conversation about humor.
