On Polanski:

Chill everybody. As Whoopie Goldberg said
"I know it wasn't rape-rape. It was something else but I don't believe it was rape-rape."
Exactly. It's wasn't rape-rape. It was more a gauzy sunset-with-burnt-sienna-coloration-rape. Doping up a 13 year old and then violating her against her protests, when performed by a noted Hollywood director is totally excusable. We've all been there, right?

Woody Allen certainly has, so it's no surprise that he's come to the defense of Polanski. And we've heard from other defenders that the kid was just asking for it, so leave the poor man alone!


another excuse heard:

a 13 year old from los angeles isn't like a normal 13 year old elsewhere. kids in LA mature faster.

Woody Allen started a relationship with his partner's adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Previn, who was of legal age, and then married Previn.

It's extremely odd, indeed disturbing, but it's not comparable to what Polanski did, which I really can't see how anyone can defend.
