    She clearly doesn't think the relationship is "gross," or that she was ever abused. She was also well over legal age when their relationship was consummated, and they are not biologically related.

    The idea of becoming sexually involved with someone you played a hand in raising (even if it was only a minor hand) is kind of weird and vaguely creepy. I absolutely agree with you there. However, given the circumstances at play here, there really isn't anything technically "wrong" with it.

    There are plenty of unions out there far creepier than this one that no one seems to have any problem with whatsoever.

    You need to educate yourself about the process of grooming. This particular child came from abject poverty. You don't think he took advantage of this situation? He is a sick, sick man. PERIOD.

    Re: Woody Allen - Pedophile?

    I have no idea but read a great piece that went over the evidence. Hells hath no fury like a woman scorned. Clearly Farrow does not like Allen. The charges were heavily investigated and dropped. At the time the molestation supposedly took place there is no way that Allen would not have been on his best behavior as he knew he and Farrow were having serious problems and Farrow was staying at his house. The video taping of the confession by Farrow was weird, with stops and starts. Seemed like coaching.

    Apparently some adults don't either! Just sayin'.

    I've seen a couple of his movies, and I was bored to tears.

    Quotes from: FACT CHECK: Woody Allen's "Rape" Case Gets Murky as Mia Farrow and Dylan Malone Lay Questionable Claim : News : Classicalite
    Here, then, are the Top 10 misconceptions, followed by my response in italics:

    #1: Soon-Yi was Woody's daughter. False.

    #2: Soon-Yi was Woody's step-daughter. False.

    #3: Soon-Yi was Woody and Mia's adopted daughter. False. Soon-Yi was the adopted daughter of Mia Farrow and André Previn. Her full name was Soon-Yi Farrow Previn.

    #4: Woody and Mia were married. False.

    #5: Woody and Mia lived together. False. Woody lived in his apartment on Fifth Ave. Mia and her kids lived on Central Park West. In fact, Woody never once stayed over night at Mia's apartment in 12 years.

    #6: Woody and Mia had a common law marriage. False. New York State does not recognize common law marriage. Even in states that do, a couple has to co-habitate for a certain number of years.

    #7: Soon-Yi viewed Woody as a father figure. False. Soon-Yi saw Woody as her mother's boyfriend. Her father figure was her adoptive father, André Previn.

    #8: Soon-Yi was underage when she and Woody started having relations. False. She was either 19 or 21. (Her year of birth in Korea is undocumented, but it's believed to be either 1970 or '72.)

    #9: Soon-Yi was borderline retarded. Ha! She's smart as a whip, has a degree from Columbia University and speaks more languages than you.

    #10: Woody was grooming Soon-Yi from an early age to be his child bride. Oh, come on! According to court documents and Mia's own memoir, until 1990 (when Soon-Yi was 18 or 20), Woody 'had little to do with any of the Previn children, [but] had the least to do with Soon-Yi', so Mia encouraged him to spend more time with her. Woody started taking her to basketball games, and the rest is tabloid history. So, he hardly 'had his eye on her' from the time she was a child."

    If that was the case, don't you think she would have rebelled against him by now? The woman's currently in her thirties, and still (by all appearances happily) married to a man that you claim to have "sexually abused" her.

    That simply doesn't add up.
