There is, apparently, more to this crime than it would seem, and it may sound like a hollow defense, but in Hollywood I am not sure a 13-year-old is really a 13-year-old.
Yesterday yet another Hollywood a-lister became a casualty in Hollywood’s sudden reversal in the culture war since the election of Donald Trump:
Actor Anthony Rapp: Kevin Spacey Made A Sexual Advance Toward Me When I Was 14
The Star Trek: Discovery actor says women speaking out about sexual misconduct in the entertainment industry has compelled him to come forward about the Oscar winner.
Stacy put out a tweet to try to defuse the issue fast:

He also played the coming out as Gay card which might not have the oomph it once did.
“Sure, I may have tried to rape a 14-year-old boy when I was 26, but I’m gay!” is a pretty horrible defense. #Spacey

As I’ve noted before none of these things take place if Trump is not elected but as we see the latest statement from a Hollywood A lister apologizing for something that apparently everyone knew about but wouldn’t talk about until the Trump era, the dam could have broken years ago. After all remember Dylan Farrow?
What if it had been your child, Cate Blanchett? Louis CK? Alec Baldwin? What if it had been you, Emma Stone? Or you, Scarlett Johansson? You knew me when I was a little girl, Diane Keaton. Have you forgotten me?
Woody Allen is a living testament to the way our society fails the survivors of sexual assault and abuse.
So imagine your seven-year-old daughter being led into an attic by Woody Allen. Imagine she spends a lifetime stricken with nausea at the mention of his name. Imagine a world that celebrates her tormenter.
Are you imagining that? Now, what’s your favorite Woody Allen movie?
Ask yourselves why during the Obama years none of those folks who knew about Harvey Weinstein or Kevin Spacy backed her up or choose that moment to speak out?
Update: Apparently the MSM hss decided that one high profile A list democrat friend of the Clintons in Hollywood being exposed as an abuser is enough:
Media Downplays Kevin Spacey Child Molestation Allegation, Focus On Sexuality in Headlines
Why on earth would reuters, People, the New York Daily News and ABC choose to lead with Spacey’s orientation and not the accusations against him, let me give you a clue

If only he was a catholic priest I suspect the focus’ of those pieces would have been quite different.
As I have no sexual secrets of rich liberals to keep for a price I have to make my buck by going places and doing interviews all the time hoping people like it enough to pay for it.
