So Lena Dunham can use the “C-word”?

The Onion's tweet Sunday night about actress Quvenzhané Wallis is by now infamous: apparently in service of a rhetorical point about the way our culture tears women apart, the satirical paper used the so-called "c-word" to describe the 9-year-old Oscar nominee.

But those watching HBO's "Girls" instead of the Oscars that night might have heard a male character describe drivers of Camrys using the same anatomical term. Neither Hannah nor Jessa seemed particularly concerned or surprised at its use.
