Barbra Streisand on Michael Jackson:
“His sexual needs were his sexual needs, coming from whatever childhood he has or whatever DNA he has,” Streisand told The Times.
Harvey Weinstein’s sexual needs belonged to Harvey Weinstein, too.
“You can say ‘molested,’ but those children, as you heard say [grown-up Robson and Safechuck], they were thrilled to be there. They both married and they both have children, so it didn’t kill them.”
Yes, you can say ‘molested.’ You should say ‘raped,’ or ‘sexually assaulted.’
And you can wonder if Weinstein’s victims were thrilled at the time, for similar reasons. Sexual assault didn’t kill any of them either, and they were old enough to consent.
Babs, you’re off script. And an idiot.
