    What are your thoughts on Cosby?

    Do you think it's possible that he's guilty of raping women?

    Or is he a victim of false allegations?

    Now I know there's the whole "innocent until proven guilty" thing - but I'm asking what your gut feel is regarding this stuff.
    Anything is possible in the Hollyweird entertainment industry. It's definitely possible that he has committed rapes. However I do pose the question "Why now?" Why did this many women wait all of these years to suddenly holler rape at the same time? If he committed even one of the alleged rapes I hope he is prosecuted. However how many of these cases were actually consensual sex? How much of the sudden flow of revelations is political? He has made some moral statements that the left did not care for.

    I don't think politics played any role in this. Finding it hard to believe that someone took the time to research women who had contact with him over the last 30 years and find around 15 who agreed to make these accusations. He is not even running for office. That is a far fetch conspiracy.

    He certainly fits the typical profile of a rapist.

    He's an asshole. My husband interacted with him a couple of times in California. Once, he saw him get a clerk fired from a bank because she screwed up his transaction. He stood there and yelled at her, and berated her, called her stupid, etc. If that wasn't bad enough, he called over her supervisor, and had her fired, under the threat of moving his money to another bank.

    He's not this sweater-wearing, grandfatherly nice guy.

    I think there are a lot of women out there that did not get from him what they wanted after they gave him sex. As a result, they are all sour and want revenge. When one allegation is made, they all start to come out of the woodwork for a spot in the spot light that they yearned for when they were sleeping with him and never got.

    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    1) You answered your own questions as to why someone would wait years to report a rape ('Was it consensual? What's your motivation? Huh? HUH?').

    2) Bill Cosby is not running for political office.

    For the same reason some people waited 40 years to call out their priests for being pedophiles. For the same reason John Jamelske, Josef Fritzl, and Ariel Castro were able to get away with rape for decades before they were caught. Rape/sexual abuse has the effect of terrifying victims for long periods of time. That's what it's all about for a rapist though: power. Cosby, being in the position that he is, (which is basically Hollywood royalty) could have put many women in a position where they could be intimidated by his lawyers and dismissed by the general public. Who would believe that 'America's dad' was capable of molesting people. Wait... I'm getting something. Guess who else got caught doing something similar not too long ago?



    If the guy from 7th Heaven who played a damn pastor is capable of molesting a kid, why not America's dad?
