Thanks to all for responding to that last post. I was overwhelmed and so impressed with y'all. And got some ideas for good books to read, good movies to see...
Ok...I have another one to throw out there.
What do you think about this guy?
I know exactly where I stand, but I am willing to keep an open mind.
I think he stinks.
I am wondering how anyone anywhere could EVER think it was okay to ply a thirteen year old child with drugs and then fuck her in the ass.
I don't care if her parents weren't around and should have been.
I don't care if it was consensual (although most reports state that it was not and honestly, when a child is drug riddled, she is hardly up to consenting to anything.)
It is just WRONG to do this.
It is our job as adults to protect children, not hurt them.
And it is NEVER, EVER okay to do what he did. Not under any circumstances, ever.
I also don't care if the assault took place decades ago. So the fuck what?
I don't care if Woody Allen, Martin Scorcese, Tilda Swinton, Harvey Weinstein, Salmon Rushdie and Mike Nichols think it should all be water under the bridge and hey, let's let bygones be bygones.
He gave a 13 year old girl drugs and then sexually assaulted her.
This was wrong.
Adults need to stand up to protect children from other adults like this.
Now, I have a question for you. What if that were your daughter, your niece, your student, your daughter's best friend, the little girl next door?
But, like I said, I will try hard to be open minded.
