Roman Polanski, for those of you who don’t know, is a very famous director with a very gross past. Firstly, his family suffered in a concentration camp, then his wife was murdered by the Manson family, and then he raped a 13 year-old-girl. That all happened.
I never liked Polanski because of the way he treated his late wife, Sharon Tate, and then he raped a little girl (in my boo Jack Nicholson’s house) so I really didn’t like him. Then I watched his documentary and I was like, “okay maybe—just maybe I gave this guy a hard time” I mean, even his rape victim has come and said, “Meh” over it all. Or more accurately, “Well it was, because I was 13. But he didn’t mean to hurt me, he thought it was all right and I was just scared and it was bad. But it wasn’t as bad as grand jury testimony, it wasn’t as bad as having my sons traumatized by paparazzi. You shouldn’t be damaged more by the court than by the crime.” She left out the part about how it was also rape because he drugged her–but minor details, am I right?
After reading that I felt a little better about thinking Polanski got a raw deal in life. Then I watched some Sharon Tate/Manson documentary in which someone spoke about how Polanski never wanted kids but that’s all Sharon wanted. She wanted a baby and Roman was angry when she became pregnant. He even left her alone—a lot, not wanting to be near her. Now he has two children. Kind of a dick move. Needless to say Polanski is walking a fine line with me—but now he’s crossed it.
“I think it’s a pity that now offering flowers to a lady becomes indecent … That’s how I feel about it. I think that trying to level the genders is purely idiotic. I think it’s a result of, like everything else and I will be Marxist here, of progress in medicine and these are outcomes of it. I think that the Pill has changed greatly the woman of our times, masculinized her … that chases away the romance from our lives and that’s a great pity.”
Are you f***ing kidding me? The Pill stops you from giving flowers? What does that even mean?!!? And the Pill does not “masculinize” you—unless you mean it gives women the power when it comes to sex. Oh, that’s what he means? F*ck you, Polanski. Without birth control I am even more of a crazy b*tch and I have excruciating pain to go with it. YOU LIVE WITH THAT EVERY MONTH. Yes, I know he’s dealt with pain but all the things I listed above do not happen to him every month, and yes I just compared my period to the murder of his wife—but you know what he wasn’t there because he didn’t even care enough to be with his 8 month pregnant wife so I doubt it hurt that much. It was probably more of an inconvenience because he is a cold bastard. He also didn’t care about raping a child because he just fled to Europe so he wouldn’t have to be bothered with it.
Shut up, shut up, shut up. What is this fad with old white men talking about women’s rights like they know? YOU DON’T KNOW SO SHUT UP!
That’s it, I am never watching Rosemary’s Baby ever again.
