Lena Dunham has never seemed like the type to care about what people think about her and now the actress has confirmed that to be true. And it turns out that she specifically doesn’t care what conservative white men think of her.

In an interview with Bill Simmons on The B.S. Report this week, Dunham spoke up about criticism she received over a segment in her memoir, ‘Not That Kind of Girl’ that described how at age 7 she “carefully spread open” her 1 year old sister’s vagina.

“I grew up … in a world where the complexity of human sexuality was openly discussed," she explained to Simmons, adding, “I don’t care what conservative white men think about me, but I do care if anything I write is painful for survivors of sexual abuse, if anything I write is painful for other feminists.”
