The one thing which does confuse me the most is just the basic implausibility that Allen would do this one time, at age 58, and has never done it before or since. As far as I'm aware, no one's ever accused him of doing this before or after. Maybe I don't know enough, but isnt that bizarre for someone who's supposedly a pedophile?


Please, Woody defenders, read this damn link. There is A LOT of corroboration in there.

While I want to hope he didn't, it's widely accepted by investigators that coaching a child to make a realistic acccusation is almost impossible to be done without it coming out in interviews

DamnYankees: Confabulat: This story was not created by the media for a change. It was started by Dylan Farrow accusing her father in print of abusing her. Now he's responding in print back.

The media is more or less literally the medium in this case.

Does anyone actually know why Dylan Farrow wrote that article? What was it apropos of? Seems like a pretty random thing to just bring up 20 years after the fact. Not saying she was wrong to do it, I'm just wondering what motivated it.


I never heard of her before, now I do. Fame would be my guess at a motivation.

/was falsely accused of rape
//she never went to the police (huge amounts of evidence in my favor), just spread rumors that cost me friendships and I didn't know until years after the fact.

He married his son's sister ... Mia's daughter ... then says it's so obvious that any rational person could see Mia was just being hateful and her accusations aren't true.  Are you kidding me? It's not exactly a stretch to think he could go after a daughter when he already went after her other daughter. I doubt Ronan likes having a father for a brother in law. And I doubt he had to be coached into thinking that is messed up. If Woody was a rational person he'd realize that.

Also if I was falsely accused of something I'd still be freaking out. I wouldn't brush it off since it didn't happen then be shocked to find out I could be in trouble for something I didn't do.

Mia and Woody are both so insane.

Some people just want to hate the guy. I don't particularly like too many of his movies (enjoyed Blue Jasmine, but that was more for Cate Blanchetts performance), so I'm not really a fan, but everything I've read and heard point's to Mia being a vengeful, damaged person who made the whole thing up.  Add to that her manipulation of her kids, and I think that crazy biatch needs some face some charges.

Just because I want to have sex with a 19 year old doesn't mean I want to have sex with a 7 year old. Just FYI.

You like to have sex with people? That means you like to rape them too. What? You don't like my leap of conclusion? Then try and look at your own. He may be a child molester, but having a relationship with a 19 year old doesn't make one more or less likely to to molest a 7 year old. Just saying.

I have read the link. It's a lot of odd, circumstantial stuff but none of it really on point enough to convince me of anything to any degree of certainty. Some of the things in there are also misleading. For example, point #2 about him having inappropriate behavior is true in and of itself (from what I've read), but its also pretty vague, and the psychologist involved also said explicitely that this behavior was not sexual. So what exactly does that fact mean or prove?

Same thing with Woody resting his head on his daughter's stomach. Is that really that weird? That's the sort of thing that looks weird if you assume he's a pervert, but if you don't, it doesn't really seem that weird to me. I mean, its not something I'd do, but its also not something that in and of itself is perverse or creepy, as far as I can tell.

All of it is like this. It's just very murky.

Same here - the only sense in which I'm 'rooting' is that I'd rather not think of anyone as being a rapist of children. I'm not sure if that makes me biased, but that seems like a pretty straightforward presumption I lean towards.

Also, we're never going to find out the truth. There's no mechanism by which that would happen.

Yes and there is no evidence showing he did it, her accusing someone even examining doctors said no molestation happened won't back up her claims. Seems pretty much like Mia is throwing further doubt on cases involving children so she can fark off.

I don't care if his wife was 45 when they got together. She was Mia's daughter and his son's sister. There is an obvious weird spot in his mind when it comes to who he should be going after.

Vague?

"Mia Farrow had instructed her babysitters that Allen was never to be left alone with Dylan. "

According to the judge's decision, Farrow told Allen, "You look at her [Dylan] in a sexual way. You fondled her . . . You don't give her any breathing room. You look at her when she's naked."

Another babysitter told police and also swore in court that on that same day, she saw Allen with his head on Dylan's lap facing her body, while Dylan sat on a couch "staring vacantly in the direction of a television set." A French tutor for the family told police and testified that that day she found Dylan was not wearing underpants under her sundress.

All that, on top of, Dylan's explicit recounting in NYT is far beyond "vague".
 
2014-02-08 12:51:22 AM  
Here's the takeaway I've managed to get:

Woody Allen is certifiably a creepy bastard...and is likely to be (subject to change) the red herring in this situation.

Mia Farrow is B-A-T-S-H-I-A-T insane. Like, on a crazy scale of 1-10, she's full potato.

Dylan Farrow is farked, and sadly in more harmful ways than one. It is her family's fault for this.

Final conclusion: this business will get out of control. It will get out of control, and they will be lucky to live through it...and the scriptwriters for CSI and SVU are just licking their chops.

There isnt any evidence so far that the accusations are false. There isnt any evidence so far that the accusations are true either, but the point here is that the ridiculing and shaming of people speaking up really needs to stop.


I think that shaming people that make stuff up that could potentially ruin people's entire lives is OK.  I'm sure this girl is being used by Mia.  She seems to be a vidnictive biatch.  Of course, that is my opinion.  And yeah, Woodie is a weird motorscooter for sure.

Except for the examining doctor said she was never molested and the nanny's along with housekeepers that were in her house said he was never alone with the kid.

There is a lot more evidence pointing to his innocence and nothing except a story some therapists have said changed and from the beginning sounded made up.

Not necessarily. I won't defend Polanski since he cetainly did it and was found guilty of it. But AFAIK he's never been accused of such behavior otherwise. Maybe he's an ephebophile, maybe he was just crazy from drugs after Sharon Tate's murder, or whatever else. Drugging and raping an underage girl is horrible an inexcusable, don't get me wrong.

Except 5 of those facts are wrong, its a matter of record Mia had her examined, the doctor said she hasn't been molested, three different people said he wasn't left alone with her that day and he did take a polygraph test and passed. Other bullshiat is just made up and seems inflammatory to sell magazines or web hits.
 
2014-02-08 12:58:15 AM  

ThatGuyFromTheInternet: Vague?


They are vague in the context of somehow proving Allen raped his daughter. Look at the allegations you list:

1) Farrow didn't trust Allen and thought he looked at her daughter sexually. What exactly does this prove, given that Mia Farrow already thinks Allen raped her daughter? It's rather circular. Am I missing some fact which says that Mia accused him of these perversions prior to the rape allegations? If so, please point it out to me.

2) Allen had his head on his daughter's lap as she watched TV. As I wrote above, taken in isolation is that really that weird? That's the sort of thing that looks weird if you assume he's a pervert, but if you don't, it doesn't really seem that weird to me. I mean, its not something I'd do, but its also not something that in and of itself is perverse or creepy, as far as I can tell.

3) His daughter wasn't wearing underwear. Ok. I don't have daughters, so I genuinely don't know, but is that such a big deal? Is that highly unusual, either in the context of children in general and the way Dylan acted normally? Again, I have no idea - all I can go off is the facts that I'm aware of. I also recall reading that this witness didn't think Allen did anything wrong (though I'd have to track down where I read this).

4) Dylan's account is of course not vague, but that's part of the he-said she-said. Allen's account is similarly not vague. I don't have an inclination to trust either one over the other.

It's just a whole bunch of isolated facts, some of which are nothing more than "Woody Allen is creepy", and other ones are more on point but also more contested. So, yes - vague.

Except those same babysitters have come out and denied that while saying he loved that child as a father, the judge was being pressured by the DA and the story of the dress is moronic since that is extremely vague and not in any police report and has zero chance to be proven.

I find it amazing anyone can conclude he did it on the basis of evidence out there, the least of which the very doctor she took her to said she hadn't been molested.

Done with this, some people are just determined to punish him for shiat he didn't do just because he looks odd.

Bonanza Jellybean: Writerly Redoubt: Bonanza Jellybean: oh great, another terrible meowsaysthedog gimmick account

you're so clever

Nope, you are.

So clever and busted, perp.

Lars The Canadian Viking: Bonanza Jellybean: roman polanski, who is a dear friend of mia's to this day (though i doubt he's really a pedophile).

Giving booze then drugs to a 13 year old does not make you a pedophile?

Not necessarily. I won't defend Polanski since he cetainly did it and was found guilty of it. But AFAIK he's never been accused of such behavior otherwise. Maybe he's an ephebophile, maybe he was just crazy from drugs after Sharon Tate's murder, or whatever else. Drugging and raping an underage girl is horrible an inexcusable, don't get me wrong. I'm just not sure he's really a pedophile.


I honestly never looked into it beyond that specific case, but if there have been no previous or former accusations against him then, yeah, maybe it was just a one time thing brought on by drugs/emotional trauma form his wife's gristly death.

DamnYankees: Confabulat: This story was not created by the media for a change. It was started by Dylan Farrow accusing her father in print of abusing her. Now he's responding in print back.

The media is more or less literally the medium in this case.

Does anyone actually know why Dylan Farrow wrote that article? What was it apropos of? Seems like a pretty random thing to just bring up 20 years after the fact. Not saying she was wrong to do it, I'm just wondering what motivated it.


I dunno but I think Mia stirred something up when she said late last year that her son she had with Woody could possibly be Frank Sinatra's kid.
