Neo-feminist Lena Dunham is defending herself against haters who are upset she posed for powerful fashion photographer and self-proclaimed “pervert” Terry Richardson.

According to StyleCaster and the New York Post, Richardson has been accused of “taking advantage of some of the young models he's worked with,” and supermodels including Coco Rocha and Rie Rasmussen have derided him about it.

Dunham has responded to the flak with tweets, including, “Any man who takes advantage of any woman sickens me. That's all and that's always — no debate” and “I responded asking that my feminism not be picked apart because of one PR experience. You don't learn to say no overnight.”
