    Not really, no. You're asking a question that you readily admit nobody here has any basis for answering.

    Most men go their whole lives without multiple women accusing them of rape. So I am going to go out on a limb here and say he is probably guilty.

    If I were to bet money on it, which would be a horrible thing to do, I would bet he is a rapist. There are just too many accusations. And given the wealth, fame, and influence of the man involved I have no problems understanding why a woman would just take a settlement rather than putting herself through the painful process of a he said/she said trial. Hell, even your average Joe rapist isn't likely to be convicted in such a case.

    Cosby was a treasured part of my childhood. I don't want to believe he is a predator. But I do.

    Oh, and as for the whole "he is innocent until proven guilty" stuff? That is only in the eyes of the law.

    Even most rich famous men don't get that.

    We do not know enough yet to suggest one way or the other. But I will say this has been going on for years without much in the way of police involvement, or an arrest, or any kind of legal / representative expressed defense.

    I think that leads to the question of if it stops being rape if you keep knowingly coming back for more.

    Even if a woman hasn't vocalized consent, doesn't this action kind of imply it?
