So, I'm a liberal which means I hate America. Duh. So, I'm having a hard time figuring out what to make of these two things:
Thing One: Frederic Mitterand, the culture minister of France who vociferously defended child rapist Roman Polanski, wrote a memoir in which he tells us:
I got into the habit of paying for boys....All these rituals of the market for youths, the slave market excited me enormously... the abundance of very attractive and immediately available young boys put me in a state of desire. (h/t Paul F)
Thing Two: In Australia, they think performing in black face is HILARIOUS!
Seriously, if i'm going to carry on being an America-hating liberal, the rest of the world is going to have to stop being so so so creepy!
