I read a number of blog posts over the last few days about how rape apologists are defending Roman Polanski and suggesting that he might be excused for raping a 13-year-old child because he makes good movies. I metaphorically shrugged my shoulders, because what's new about rape apologists? (Remember the support for Anand Jon, anyone, or the horror that Shiney Ahuja raped a maid?)
But then I read that the rape apologists include Salman Rushdie, Woody Allen and Whoopi Goldberg. I am shocked and saddened. And speechless, for once.
