Cancel that column


Kansas City: Cathy Young’s alternativ­e reality article on Woody Allen is mind-boggling. She claims his innocence of preying on two adopted children while freely acknowledg­ing his known relationsh­ip with another. Although, apparently his pursuit of that child is all okay, according to Young — because why? Maybe because he married her? I don’t know, because she too was a minor in his custody, care and control as her parent. Young scoffs at “believing survivors.” I’m stunned. What is wrong with this writer’s brain function? The article is disgusting. I don’t believe in cancel culture, but bypassing repeated issues of sexual misconduct by anyone is problemati­c.
