Woody Confess?

Sunday update:  As debate continues across the Web--Lena Dunham has voiced support for Farrow, but few other top stars have joined in--the prosecutor in Conn. who once suspected the charges were true says there is no chance for any new charges to filed as statute of limitations ran out long ago.

UPDATE  Kristof tweets:  "Dylan says she's VERY grateful to all: "The outpouring of support has been monumental, and I'm so immensely grateful. Thank you....Quite a gender gap in reaction to Dylan's essay. Many men are denouncing me for publishing it; many women thanking me for the same."

Earlier  Finally we get the voice of the daughter, Dylan Farrow, he allegedly sexually abused in a closet has been not only heard but amplified because it's a Nick Kristof blog and it's at the NYT.  As he observes, she has not written about the incident in her own words previously.  Read the whole thing and then you'll know why Woody Allen getting the Lifetime Achievement at the Golden Globes set off a firestorm, partly pushed by a tweet from her brother Ronan.  Here's the conclusion:
What if it had been your child, Cate Blanchett? Louis CK? Alec Baldwin? What if it had been you, Emma Stone? Or you, Scarlett Johansson? You knew me when I was a little girl, Diane Keaton. Have you forgotten me?
Woody Allen is a living testament to the way our society fails the survivors of sexual assault and abuse.
So imagine your seven-year-old daughter being led into an attic by Woody Allen. Imagine she spends a lifetime stricken with nausea at the mention of his name. Imagine a world that celebrates her tormenter.
Are you imagining that? Now, what’s your favorite Woody Allen movie?

Charges that stem from a heated custody battle should set off alarms. Though I hate to send anyone to the Beast, this post at least seems to be based on rational thought, and Margaret Sullivan has linked to: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/01/27/the-woody-allen-allegations-not-so-fast.html
