What’s worse, statutory rape or people who would defend it?

September 28th, 2009

I found many of the comments on this post by Ann Althouse about Roman Polanski’s arrest to be very disturbing.

They were arguing that it was somehow OK that Polanski had sex with a 13-year-old girl.

The comments I found most repulsive were the ones that implied that a 13-year-old is a teenager not a child.

I’m sorry, viagra canada rx but just because 13 is the first number with a “teen” in it, does not mean the girl was the equivalent of a 16-, 17-, 18-, or 19-year-old.

    Well, let’s be clear about one thing. It was more than statutory rape. It was actual full blown rape. The 13 year old was drugged, and also said no at various times during the encounter. Had she been 18, what he did still would have been classified as rape.

    He’s a douche. So was the judge in the case. People forget he skipped out after being convicted so it doesn’t matter what the victim wants or doesn’t want. That part of the case is over.
