Lena Dunham is not a reason why the nation’s women are falling through the cracks; she is a symptom and a result of years of cultural abuse by leftists and radicals. What do I mean by abuse?

I had four brothers and a Dad who were there for me. They were responsible and served as an example of what men should be. Let me say, nothing any of the Women’s Studies professors and their merry band of followers ever said ever made the case about some big, awful patriarchy.
