Roman Polanski Says the Pill 'Masculinized' Women & Ruined Romance

Eye Roll 17

Roman Polanski Emmanuelle SeignerI bristle immediately anytime I hear the name of well-known Director Roman Polanski. I hate that dude -- mostly because he was convicted of raping a 13-year-old girl years ago and ran off to France to avoid serving his time, and I also believe he probably got away with the raping several other women as well. But he also just gives me the full-on creeps. And now he's running his (creepy) mouth over at Cannes Film Festival and being frickin' Grade-A douchebag again!

Polanski, 79, is at Cannes promoting his new film Venus in Fur (creepy), starring his current baby wife Emmanuelle Seigner, 46 (creepy). He describes the film as a "satire of sexism" (god, so creepy). When a reporter asked how his views about women had changed over the years, Polanski said, "I think that the Pill has changed greatly the woman of our times, 'masculinising' her ... I think that it chases away the romance from our lives and that's a great pity."

What ... the ... eff ...?!!!

I don't even know how to respond. I'm not even sure I can begin to analyze this man's effed up head. What does THAT mean?

I don't think Polanski means that women became biologically more "masculine" by taking birth control pills. If I had to guess, I'd say he means that women garnished more power in their own lives when the Pill came along -- which is true for single and married women alike. But clearly, Polanski didn't like that. He liked when there was a much larger power dynamic between the sexes. Apparently, he finds the idea of a woman being in charge of her own sexuality and life "unromantic." 

Gross. That's all I have to say. Gross. And I don't know why I'm even shocked.

What do you think Polanski meant by this statement?

I don't care. He's a rapist and a pedophile, and he doesn't deserve ANY of the publicity that he's getting. For anything. Stop giving it to him.

Many of You guys on the left and in Hollywood will give him a free pass when his next "great" movie comes out. He is a pedophile, a rapist and a just a general fuckhole

I want to debate what he said, but I can't because he is a rapist that ran from the law.

Not all of us.  I think Polanski belongs in prison.  Or, better yet, castrate him with a rusty knife.

Rapist, pedophile, disgusting human being. Stop giving him publicity for his idiotic views.

I've heard his name, but I'm not sure what movies he has directed. I'm going to google him to make sure I never spend the dollar it would cost to rent one of his films. i really hope everyone who hears his mouth excrement is disgusted by his philosophies as we are.

Yeah, because forcing sex on a 13 year old girl is romantic in any way?? What a f*cking loser, I hope he suffers a slow and painful death.
