When the rapist is your friend, I guess. But it’s still rape.
I don’t want to listen to this video of Whoopi Goldberg. I just want to put it somewhere I can find it.
Polanski pleaded guilty to sex with a minor. The charges were less than rape. But Polanski raped the girl. PERIOD.
Yes, I know WG may have been trying to avoid being sued for libel. In that case she should have been clear that she was saying he didn’t plead guilty to rape, not what she said.
And on to other idiots:
Author Gore Vidal says he refuses to feel any sympathy for Roman Polanskiâ€™s rape victim, whom he dubs a â€œhooker.â€â€¨In an interview with The Atlantic, the controversial 83-year-old author of such books as â€œMyra Breckinridgeâ€ and â€œ1876â€ says of the directorâ€™s sex scandal, â€œI really donâ€™t give a [expletive]. Look am I going to sit and weep every time a young hooker feels as though sheâ€™s being taken advantage of?â€â€¨The young woman to whom he is referring is Samantha Geimer, who was a 13-year-old aspiring model in 1977 when she was drugged and raped by Polanski.â€¨â€¨Vidal went on to say that the media pushed an inaccurate image of Geimer, painting her as an innocent victim as opposed to what he believes to be her true identity.â€¨
