Of Which There Should Be More Serious Response

Is it or is it not a crime for an adult male (adult to the age of 40-ish) to act as predator in deliberately enticing a 13-year-old female to non-consensual and indeed, forced sex? That's a "yes-no" question. Answer it with a simple "yes" or "no".

If the answer is "Yes, that is a crime in every sense of the word", then why is Hollywood so prone to exonerate Roman Polanski? Why did Whoopi (that Great Wise One) insist that Polanski's crime was not really "rape-rape". You know, as in "Real Rape"!

When does rape become not rape?

Please read Carson Calloway's thought-provoking response on this rush by Hollywood to exonerate a man who has long evaded justice.

And then, come back to the question I propose in my first sentence. And answer with a simple "yes" or "no".

All comments welcome.

Yes. And I'll even take it one step further, WhiteStone. It is a crime for an adult male (adult to the age of 40-ish) to act as predator in deliberately enticing a 13-year-old female to consensual sex.

A 40 year old man has no business seeing a 13 year old girl in that way, period. He has absolutely no right to try to influence that girl for his own use.

YES!!! And I completely do NOT understand this defense of Roman Polanski just because he's famous!!!
