I'm sure by now you're familiar with the Bill Cosby rape brouhaha. New York Daily News made this their front cover, following the New York Times feature that interviewed 35 women allegedly raped by the Ace comedian, with this these women as its cover photo. See below:
Rape is no small matter but I can't help but ask where these women were all these years, why were they silent and why are they all now coming out to speak up? Well I guess it was a chain reaction... Whispered mentions of it, then that brash stand up comedian who made bold crass jokes about 'Bill Cosby the rapists', at first people were enraged, then people began to realize there's no smoke without fire. The one of the victims finding an opening, spoke up, then others followed suit.
Rapists deserve to be severely punished.
But guys, do you think this is taking it too far? Personally I feel like it is, I feel like he's already been shamed enough, I feel like there's an agenda to destroy him completely, tarnish and totally wipe out every memory of him. And I worry that a man his age might not be able to take all of this, like he might just cave in and croak! But it seems that's what they want, is that what he deserves? What do you think?
