Lena Dunham vs. Josh Duggar: Are They Both Pedophiles?

by at .

Most of the Internet reacted swiftly and negatively to the interview Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar gave Megyn Kelly on Wednesday night.

But not Sarah Palin.

Not in the way most people responded, at least, as the former Vice Presidential candidate dragged Lena Dunham into the Josh Duggar controversy by wondering why the media is so fast to castigate Duggar...

... yet gave Dunham a pass for what Palin deems to be comparable behavior.

In Dunham's memoir, she writes about looking into her sister's vagina when Lena was seven and her sibling was one.

She also writes about bribing her young sister with candy back in the day to snuggle with her and kiss her and admits to masturbating in a bed she shared with her sister.

"The media's hell-bent mission to go after the entire Duggar family for one member’s wrongdoing, while giving a total pass to perverted actions of someone like Lena Dunham," Palin wrote on Facebook this week.

Do you agree?

Dunham satisfied her sexual curiosity as a child by looking at her sister's private parts and sharing a few intimate moments with her sibling.

Josh Duggar has admitted to inappropriately touching five young girls when he was 14 and 15 years of age; two of those victims were his sisters, Jessa and Jill Duggar.

Is one action worse than the other? Are they the same? Should critics be looking at Dunham the same they look at Duggar?

Back in November, Dunham responded to those who claim she molested her sister by labeling the allegation “really f-cking upsetting and disgusting," adding:

“Usually this is stuff I can ignore but don't demean sufferers, don't twist words. I told a story about being a weird seven year old. I bet you have some too."

Jim Bob Duggar, meanwhile, says technically his son is not a pedophile because he was not 16 years old when his heinous acts took place.

So now it's your turn to weigh in, THGers: You know the facts on both sides. You know the opinions. 

Compare the situations of Lena Dunham and Josh Duggar and decide: Who's worse?
