    I wouldn't do it. It'd creep me the Hell out.

    However, if, theoretically, some people could experience such attractions, not act upon them until the person in question was grown, and even have a healthy relationship with them afterwards, I would see no reason to necessarily judge them harshly.

    Again, unless you can demonstrate objective harm here, I'm really not seeing any reason to get bent out of shape about it.

    She clearly has no problem being married to Woody Allen, and she rather obviously isn't suffering "abuse" at his hands either.

    Re: Woody Allen - Pedophile?

    I found an article at the Daily Beast that clears up some misconceptions. Do I think it is creepy to date/marry your girlfriend's adopted daughter? Yes.

    #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 cohabitate 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 was undocumented, but 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.

    With Woody not even staying at the apartment in the 12 years they were "girlfriend/boyfriend" and the revelation in Vanity Fair last year that the baby boy that was born during their relationship according to Mia could be Frank Sinatra's. Rowan grew up spending time with the Sinatras. Mia married Frank Sinatra when she was 19. And according to her they never stopped seeing each other even while she was with Woody. After their divorce she had an affair with a guy named Previn who was married at the time. It is said that his wife had a breakdown over her husband's affair with Mia. After Previn was divorced he and Mia got married and adopted Soon-Yi. Soon-Yi Farrow Previn.

    The article goes on to tell about testimony that was given in the sex abuse case that explains why Woody was never charged. The sex abuse allegations by Mia didn't occur until after Allen filed for custody of Rowan, Dylan and Moses.

    Moses now has a good relationship with Woody and calls what happened to Rowan and Dylan "brainwashed"

    Interesting article

    So, what are your thoughts on Woody Allen?

    Is he a pedophile?


    Creepy bastard?

    Harmless Peepaw?

    Legendary director and actor?

    Should legal action be taken immediately?



    I really don't know.

    He isn't one of my favorite people, but I do believe that he deserves the same fair trial that everyone is supposed to get in the USA, so I'll withhold my final judgement until he gets that.

    But right now, since it confirms what I think about the guy, I going with pedophile.

    How would you know any of this? You don't. The bottom line is that he is disgusting.

    All I've been saying this whole time is that there's really no reason to jump to the worst possible conclusion here. You're doing so not based upon the weight of the evidence we have available, but the lack thereof.

    The bottom line is that he is disgusting.
    You can certainly believe that if you wish. His wife, however; seems to disagree.

    How would you know? The bottom line is you are judging a stranger on rumour and innuendo. He looks creepy so he did it.

    THIS is not a court room. It is a political debate site where I CAN and WILL give my opinions on subjects. My opinion on this is that Woody Allen is a pedophile.

    No offence intended, I just noted what I thought was a coincidence between the lines of logic being pursued through two threads that are running simultaneously. In the Knox thread people are arguing that because there's no forensic evidence, she can't be proved guilty. Here the opposite logic is being proposed.

    I think it's obvious what was going on there.

    There's a big difference between forensic evidence of murder and evidence for child sexual assault. In most cases with a child sexual assault, all we have to go on IS the word of said child. It is one of the most difficult crimes to prove.
