Assuming descriptions of the Polanski incident are not bullshit, only a moron would not see it as child rape.

Of course the descriptions could be bullshit.


Gotta agree with that assessment. But as a creationist buddy of mine is fond saying (in strawman mock of the notion that morals are relative): not that there's anything wrong with that...

...well, unless one evaluates the impact on society and notes that yeah...there is something relatively "wrong" with it - it diminishes the perception of safety in general and trust in the protection and strength of the society, thus weakening the fabric of society overall. Hence the reason we as society say it is unacceptable and send folks that engage in such off to the stockade.
