Savage's Response via his lawyer:
"While I hope that my sister gets the help she needs to find peace, this needs to end. For many years, she has relentlessly and falsely attacked me and other members of my family to anyone who will listen," Savage said. "By spreading numerous untrue stories about us in pursuit of a financial bonanza, she has tortured our entire family and estranged herself from all of us. I will fight this groundless and offensive lawsuit and work to put this to rest once and for all."

A 9-year-old anally raping a 7-year-old? Does that happen?

Yikes!  Please be bullshiat.  He's always seemed like such a good guy.

In the course of human events, if you can imagine something - pretty much anything physically possible - someone somewhere has almost certainly done it, and someone else has probably done something even better or worse than whatever it was that you imagined.

Now whether this particular person did this particular thing? Kind of impossible to say, but - given the timescale involved and the total lack of other objectionable or suspect behavior on Savage's part over the many years since the allegations - I wouldn't be quick to assume the worst about him. If more information emerges then we might have enough info to form opinions about it, but given what we have right now that's impossible to do.

If Savage's other sisters come out and make similar claims - that would lend credence to this sister.
If women from Savage's life come forward saying he's acted in suspect ways with them - that would lend credence to this sister.

But, to the best of my knowledge, no one has ever accused Savage of being anything other than a perfectly nice guy - which lends credence to Savage.

Except the stories about Cosby were circulating for years, and women who knew him wouldn't have been quick to call him a "good guy". Cosby had a pattern and a LOT of accusations.

Adam Savage has one accuser, from childhood incidents. I feel like there would be at least a few more accusers coming out of the wood works if this was true.

People have been known to lie, or been known to have mental issues that cause them to make accusations or see things in a different reality (yes, I get the irony of using this phrase). Without something more corroborating, I personally couldn't put much credence in her claims.

If a 9 year old is raping a 7 year that points to something very,very wrong in that household.

Ugh, family and money can be very toxic.  My mom hasn't spoken to her brother in over twenty years because greed got the better of him when settling their mothers estate.

The only people who think the Me Too movements call to "believe women" means "believe all women everywhere always tell the truth and no woman would ever lie" rather than what it actually means, "stop the widespread ignoring womens' issues, and start farking listening to them once in a while" are disingenuous farkwits. Some are trolls trying to rile people up, others are just dishonest morons.

Either way, I'd like to welcome you to not being taken seriously by anyone with a lick of sense.

This is a difficult one for me, but I'll go ahead and share some family history here.  Most of the principles involved have died, anyway.  My uncle as an adolescent raped my years younger than him aunt.  This same uncle went on to sexually abuse his daughter and (we suspect) his wife as well.  My grandparents definitely swept the original incident under the rug as best they could.  My own father didn't know about it until his sister told him within the last 15 years.

What's different about that is that my uncle displayed a pattern of bad behavior elsewhere as well.  Fights in school, fights at home and doing things that seemed to attract an unusual amount of attention from the local police (1950s).  My dad bought this uncle's car and until my dad sold it on (not quite a year later), it was frequently followed and he was often pulled over by the local PD.  To this day we have no idea what happened with that car that it had the police so interested in it.

So yeah, I'm torn here with believe women, because I know these things CAN be kept secret in a family, and my general awareness that that sort of behavior is usually part of a pattern which to this point hasn't been established.

I wasn't saying all posts expressing doubt in someone's story of sexual assault are in bad taste. It was the specific context in this case that I found distasteful, since it was trying to make a joke out of one kid raping another.

Are you saying that jokes about non-consensual sexual abuse between children are funny?

edmo: Money will make it better? Why not prison?


FTFA: "Savage cannot be criminally charged in relation to these alleged acts, as the statute of limitations has long since passed. However, a New York law, the Child Victims Act, allows sexual abuse victims to civilly sue their alleged abusers after the statute of limitations expires."

Wouldn't he have to charged as a juvenile considering he was supposed to be 9-12 years old when this happened?

Once again if a 9 year old is raping his 7 year old sister it means someone probably did that to him also.

That is assuming that a child's action are the same as an adults actions.  I know nothing about this.  I don't have an opinion except is it sad either way.

I'd just offer that Cosby had rumours about him for 40 years, gossip sites nailed him 20 years ago, so it's not like he seemed like a nice guy to anyone who paid attention.

Yeah, she might have really been a victim, but this was children, very young children.

Without something, anything else, this is even weaker than the Tara Reade accusation against Biden (which also is a lone accusation, her credibility buried by its uncorroborated story). Often, children do terrible things without realizing how terrible their actions were. I know I've done embarrassing things in front of some of my girl cousins, never with malice or perverted intent, but in an adult context, it might be a different matter. At some point, you have to let it go. That she hasn't speaks to deeper underlying issues more than anything else.
