My generation grew up with Bill Cosby as a hero for American families. Watching his shows and hearing his comedy was truly a joy. That Bill Cosby is now being accused as a rapist makes me sick to my stomach. He was someone that made me laugh and happy. Now, I truly believe Bill Cosby is guilty of raping and sexually abusing potentially hundreds of women. If that’s not bad enough, his story of lies has been going on for more than 50 years. He was molesting and raping women while being revered by the American public. Bill Cosby a rapist. No way that could have been true and now I can’t imagine it’s not true.
If this was the story of one woman and her accusations, I might believe the possibility that she was lying to gain fame at his expense. When the number of women coming forward becomes too many to ignore, it’s impossible to see that he could be innocent. The chilling stories from these women, all telling roughly the same Bill Cosby nightmare experience, remove any doubt. These women have nothing to gain – well, maybe the embarrassment and pain that comes with having to acknowledge that America’s hero raped and sexually abused them, but I don’t think that’s much of a reward. Bill Cosby drugged, raped, and abused these women before shaming them into silence and screwing the American people with his lies.
