I'm glad she isn't hopping onto this particular bandwagon.

As for the writing...a couple episodes back there was the 'no means no' 
segment where her character said 'no'  100+ times in a row (seemingly 
trying to convince herself, not the guy) and then the guy responded with:

I think that we should bone.
Mainly because I really - want to bone you right now.
....If you were just to taste my dick

So, yes, I can believe he is writing some of this and his expertise in 
crass male behavior is integral to some of the humor.

I find it disheartening that this interviewer would try to get her to 
revise her comments.  Another hint that these Hollywood proceedings are 
moving forward like the McCarthy hearings.
