He didn't say it was normal. He said that Woody hasn't molested anyone. Is it really so hard to actually read a comment and respond to it with something that fits the context of the conversation?

I don't think there is a single true thing in your comment. He did not raise her, he did not live with Mia Farrow while they were dating and rarely even went to her house. He probably met her kids a handful of times over the years. Everyone involved agrees with these facts. He didn't actually start hanging out with her until she was almost 20 years old, and that was at the request of Mia Farrow who wanted him to be closer to her kids. They didn't start dating until she was in her 20s. It's not like he was grooming her from a young age. A little creepy, sure, but its no more creepy than any relationship between an older guy and a younger girl. And they've been married for decades now, so it appears to be a real relationship.

Grooming is a hell of a thing.

How was he going to groom her? When did he have the opportunity?

Good question

Because her own brother Moses who was once on her side now claims it's bullshit, and all she has to say is "that's heartbreaking". Yeah, no reasonable doubt there. sarcasm

Maybe because he hasn't molested anyone.

I'm not saying that Woody and SoonYi have anything resembling a 'traditional' relationship. But equating it to kidnap and rape is a whole separate level of crazy.

Taking care of a child to adult hood

It's been well established that he didn't do that at all, or anything even close to it.

Most of the people being really taken down with metoo have multiple accusers and the abuse is within the last few years. In this case Allen has one accuser and it was over 20 years ago with nothing new since and he already was accused. So in the minds of people it’s been handled - whether correctly or not... Even Bill Clinton has mostly escaped the onslaught.

Sorry, how is it a good question? He hasn't done anything other than have a highly questionable accusation thrown at him.

Is his marriage a little weird? Yes. Is that anyones business? No.

His stepdaughter is literally the author of the linked op-ed.

There's another letter that's pretty much required reading to understand this stuff, also written by her: https://kristof.blogs.nytimes.com/2014/02/01/an-open-letter-from-dylan-farrow/

There's so much hypocrisy from people in Hollywood who says we should believe women, but then continue to work with Woody Allen when he's also been accused.

Except the person who wrote the article we are commenting on.

Because Woody Allen and Soon-Yi Previn will be married twenty years this Dec 22nd. What are you gonna get outraged at? A happily married couple?

Why would you say that though, everyone loves apples.

Not his stepdaughter. She didn't live with Mia or Woody, He barely knew her until she was of-age. Etc. Etc.

It’s not the most important part of the conversation by any means but I really hate that these op-eds only ever seem to target/mention the women who agree to work with Woody Allen.

Same with all the cast interviews. If history’s any indication, I guarantee that next year Elle Fanning’s going to get so many more questions about this than Jude Law or Timothée Chalamet.
