Also, writing of five-year-olds "wanting it" -- and I'll grant the assumption of the account being fictional -- and defending such a statement as merely a means of being provocative strikes me as (1) not very provocative and (2) sick.

You sum up why conservatives are harping on this matter. By contemporary standards... but we are going into repetitions. And no, Roman Polanski shouldn't go to jail. He should have gone to jail 40 years ago. The remark about the "French elite" distracts from the question why he wasn't jailed then.

Intriguing which parts of this thread are seen as provocative. I've also written "this topic had to be debated. Nowadays it is taboo." To be honest, I expected someone would jump at this and say the current campaign was not about enforcing a taboo on debate.
