“Having Sex”

September 28, 2009 § 4 Comments

Dear NPR, CNN, NY Daily News, Associated Press, and other media,

Roman Polanski was not arrested on charges of “having sex” with a 13-year-old girl. He was arrested on charges of raping a 13-year-old girl — charges to which he plead guilty.

Forcing sexual activity on a child is not sex, it is rape. Giving a child drugs and alcohol to coerce her into sexual activity is not sex, it is rape. Penetrating a child anally despite her repeated protests is not “sodomy,” it is anal rape.

Roman Polanski did not have sex with a 13-year-old. He raped her. He raped her and then he left the country to escape prosecution.

Just, you know, a little reminder: RAPE IS NOT SEX.

Thanks,
Miranda

    This is the very first thing that irked me about this whole Roman Polanski ordeal.

    Then nearly everyone in Hollywood revealed them self to be a rape apologist, the shit-storm kept roaring, and now I want to move to Mars. This has not been a good week for humanity.

    ..agreed with this comment, though:

    “The state of California is in the middle of a gigantic fiscal crisis. The victim has expressed a desire to just move on. It happened over 30 years ago. I think CA should be putting what little resources it has to pursuing current rapists living within the confines of the state, posing a threat NOW to the good people of the state of CA.
