Yes- having sex with a minor is known as STATUTORY rape which of course, is WRONG under ANY circumstances.<quoted text>
Whoopi Goldberg, in 2009 defended director Roman Polanski by claiming his rape of a 13-yr-old in 1977 wasnt rape-rape, she said. I think it was something else, but I dont believe it was rape-rape.
However, if Polanski did not use physical force or threaten the young girl's life in any way, then what Whoopi meant is that it was not rape in the sense of it being an act of violence perpetrated against an unwilling victim.
Of course, given the age of the girl, it is still rape because a 13 year old can't legally consent to sex.
I am in NO way excusing an ADULT having sex with a CHILD, but what Whoopi meant is clear to me even if it's not clear to you.
Added to that is I was not aware that Whoopi had entered the political arena.
We have quotes from Republican POLITICIANS who attempt to justify, excuse and legitimize rape- have you ANY quotes from Democratic POLITICIANS which do the same?
Of COURSE you don't- so you dredge up what an ENTERTAINER said and then you seek to take what she said out of context.
