    I don't know.

    I don't deny it's possible that he is a rapist but I suspect the rich and famous who are accused of rape are far more likely to be accused multiple times. I also suspect that likelihood increases as does the profile of the man.

    I hope its a lie, I grew up watching the Cosby Show, but just the same most guys go their whole lives without being accused of rape, much less by multiple women.

    Most of the rich and famous never get accused of rape though..

    No but I suspect wealthy, celebrity men are probably accused of rape far more often then any other demographic.

    I don't know that either of these things are true for sure but I imagine they are.

    It just seems to me that whenever multiple women suddenly start accusing a man of raping them decades before, it's almost always an extremely wealthy celebrity.

    Again, I'm not saying that he didn't rape these women but I'm always skeptical when it involves such wealth, high profile people.

    Even if a woman hasn't vocalized consent, doesn't this action kind of imply it?
    Yes. Plus admitting that she thought it was part of the deal.

    Yeah, if you're kind of showing up to have sex with a guy because you think it will help with your career then I don't know how you can really claim to be raped.

    Well if the same people were accusing Bill Cosby of being a serial murderer, coke dealer, and of selling plots at the national cemetery on top of being a rapist, then their accusations would hold a lot less water...

    I get what you are saying, and I am sympathetic to your argument. However, you wouldn't necessarily hear about such accusations against some average joe because they are not a celebrity, so it goes both ways on that one.
