Did Cosby really rape all those women? I'm having trouble believing that 50+ girls all got raped by this guy but not a single one of them spoke up until a couple years ago.
How the fuck would any of us know?
There are plausible reasons for why they wouldn't speak up but it's possible some are riding the hype train.
Either way you're not getting any insight here
No. Most of them are trying to grab money off of him.
what you have to keep in mind is that the vast majority of rapes are not a stranger beats the fucking shit out of you and tears your clothes off and beastfucks you, it's usually someone you know who wont take no for an answer and you just freeze up
so for most people its easier to just try and ignore it than go through the stress of reporting it and testifying in court and get grilled about it being your fault or not really counting and everyone looking at you differently for the rest of your life all for a tiny chance of a conviction anyway
plus dude is famous and rich and has a nice guy persona, so it's even less chance of a report mattering
because he's a massive celebrity, would you have actually tried to challenge him in court back then? you'd be afraid for your own reputation
you do realize that a bunch of people in the industry already knew about this shit, don't you? it was only a surprise to the public
The truth is probably a mix of both. Actual victims start the fire and then opportunists pile on after.
It was a different time, anon, a time when a rape was just being aggressive.
What would happen if some old bitch accused some old guy of raping her 25 years ago? The answer is fucking nothing would happen because there's fuckall that can be done now. These women should leave this man the fuck alone so he can die in peace.
If you familiarize yourself with the facts, some women did talk about it earlier, but given the lack of evidence, and the fact that any rich person can abuse the legal system and bankrupt you by suing for slander, etc, it's not surprising he got away with it. But many people in the industry have known about these rumors for decades.
He probably raped some of them, maybe even a good number of them, but I'm betting a fair number of people he fucked at any party are coming out and being abetted by the court of public opinion.
Nobody wants to shift through the accusations and defend him, so they just gasp at the climbing number of victims without a hint of suspicion.
>plus dude is famous and rich and has a nice guy persona, so it's even less chance of a report mattering
this. i highly doubt his victims knew one another, and many likely thought they were a one-off case. imagine it's the 80's or something and you, alone, want to try and accuse cosby of raping you. it probably wouldn't go far. it'd be like trying to accuse bob ross or mr rogers of giving forceful trips to poundtown
that said, i highly doubt the number's as high as 50. maybe a dozen or two tops.
So let's say he did do some raping. The exact number doesn't matter right now, just for the sake of argument he is guilty.
What the fuck is the point of coming after him now? How on Earth can you possibly serve an 80 year old man justice? He's one bad fall away from the grave. Giving money away isn't a solution for anyone and only serves to further divide the justice system between the rich and the poor. I legitimately cannot see a reason why possible crimes from 20+ years ago are causing such a media firestorm.
This. I remember digging and finding out that a lot of the "cases" just didn't add up at all. Like they can't put him in the place for where they said he was at the time. The fact that a few of them are caught tells me more of them are also liars.
I'm sure there's some granules of truth. He probably did have forceful sex with a few women with questionable consent. Did he rape 50 women? No. Did he coerce a dozen women into having sex with him because he's Bill Fucking Cosby? Yeah, probably.
>aspiring "actress" spots Cosby at some public venue
>decides to get all cozy and flirty with him to advance her career
>Cosby never calls them back
>50 years later some scandal breaks out in the news: haha now now is the chance to get back at that bastard for 'raping' me
