UPDATE:Roman Polanski--Is the Tide Turning?

We've talked about this, and about how lots of Hollywood celebrities seem to be defending or coming up with some kind of bogus excuse for an adult raping a 13-year old girl, and the story is being covered elsewhere as well.

Now it might be that the tide is turning, and Hollywood celebrities are coming out and saying that it is not, in fact, okay for an adult to rape a 13-year-old girl, even if he is a famous and wealthy movie director.

I don't recognize most of the names on the list, but I am sure a number of women I know will be glad that John Legend is on it:

# RT @Littlewaysangel check out this article on the Roman Polanski issue--it says it all http://bit.ly/S2ULo9:57 AM Sep 30th from web
# A man in his 30's cannot have "consensual" sex with a 13-year-old. It is legally impossible for a child to give consent. It is rape. ...8:44 AM Sep 30th from web
# I'm trying to understand why Hollywood is lining up to defend Roman Polanski. Didn't he plead guilty to raping a 13 year old girl?
