Dylan Farrow vs. Woody Allen: Who Do You Believe?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

For a scandal in which there are no legal consequences, now or ever, the Dylan Farrow-Woody Allen saga is dominating headlines this month.

Farrow, 28, was jointly adopted by Allen, 78, and former partner Mia Farrow, 69. She says Allen molested her in the early '90s, when she was 7.

  • D. Farrow
  • W. Allen

Allen denied the allegations then, but they resurfaced this winter after Farrow penned open letter to the N.Y. Times recounting her father's molestation of her.

The famed director has reiterated his denials, blaming Mia for coaching Dylan, making up untrue stories and fostering a lingering resentment of him.

Dylan immediately countered that Woody Allen is a child molester and he can say whatever he wants, but the truth is on her side and she won't be silenced.

Which seems to be her endgame. Allen wasn't prosecuted in 1992, though Farrow claims there was probable cause, and he will not be in 2014.

The widespread acclaim of Blue Jasmine and his iconic career in general seems to be the impetus for Dylan, who feels her story mustn't be forgotten.

Who to believe? We'll likely never know for sure, as both sides are adamant and unyielding in their positions in this decades-long blame game.

Everyone deserves a chance to be heard. Only 2% of rape cases that are reported are false. The chances she is lying are slim. Officials need to look into this and stop assuming that she is lying. She gains absolutely NOTHING by making this story up. I believe her. I really do. He is guilty to me unless there are hard facts that he didn't do it. That's that.

So you think it's appropriate for a step father to be intimate with his step children? Just wait for them to be of legal age and then marry them? You don't know that he is innocent. Police don't always have enough evidence to prosecute. All there has to be is reasonable doubt for charges not to be filed.

Back when the accusations were first made, both medical and psychological doctors, hired by the PROSECUTORS, examined Dylan Farrow and determined that she had NOT been molested. Both Dylan and Mia Farrow refused to take a lie detector test. Woody Allen took a lie detector test and PASSED. Mia Farrow dated MUCH older men, like Frank Sinatra, when she was still in her teens, yet she has hypocritically slammed Woody for being interested in Soon-Yi, whom he had little to nothing to do with previous to Mia's insistence to Woody that he spend more time with her. By the way, Woody was never a father figure to Soon-Yi, as has been alleged over the years. Again, he barely knew her. He was merely her mother's boyfriend and lived at a separate residence. Why is it that if Mia Farrow were such a great mother, Soon-Yi has had nothing to do with her in all these years? Today, why is it that Mia's son Moses Farrow, now a grown man, will have nothing to do with her, saying publicly that he doesn't trust her? In fact, after an entire childhood being taught by Mia to hate and distrust Woody, Moses now is close to Woody and publicly denounces Mia. Why is it that whenever requests for rights to use film clips of Mia Farrow in Woody Allen movies, Mia always allows it? Because she loves the attention. Why is it that when children make accusations like this, people say that "children don't lie" when everyone knows children absolutely do lie? Why did 7-year-old Dylan's story keep changing when she was repeatedly questioned? Because she was saying what Mia coached her to say. Why is it that for years Mia Farrow accepted child support from Woody Allen for her son Ronan Farrow, who is the spitting image of Frank Sinatra? Because Mia Farrow is a LIAR.

No, the specialist who examined her when the initial disclosure came out did not say she had NOT been molested. That specialist is a colleague to the doctor who works on our team and he knows that that statement was not made. No specialist would ever say that as they weren't there. You do know that a child can be fully penetrated and have a normal exam, don't you? 95% of children who have disclosed abuse have normal exams. No doctor who knows what they are talking about would ever say that a child had or had not been abused. However, they can state that the exam supports the history of what the child is stating regardless of whether the child is disclosing or not disclosing penetration and or the exam findings support evidence of some type of penetrating trauma. The tissue down there heals quickly and is also made to stretch.

Just one thought: On July 11, Mia Farrow wrote a letter and posted it on the door when Woody Allen was there for Dylan's birthday party. You can see the letter in the 60 Minutes interview on CBS' website. It said "Child Molestor at birthday party. Molded and abused one daughter, now focused on youngest sister. Family disgusted." The so-called abuse of Dylan didn't even HAPPEN until August 4. Interesting that Mia labeled him a "child molester" who was "focused on" Dylan several weeks BEFORE the alleged attic incident.

Susan, that's because the 4th August incident wasn't an isolated incident. Mia Farrow had suspected since Dylan was around 4 yrs old that Woody Allen was showing inappropriate interest in her, and Woody was actually in therapy relating to it, as I understand. Also there's actually no proof Mia wrote the note you can see in the 1992 interview. I watched the interview, and found Woody Allen very shifty in it, especially when dealing with questions about Soon-Yi.

Team Dylan all the way! I believe her without hesitation. Woody is a perv and he always has been. I wish her. All good things as she goes forward in her life.

Mr. Allen should come clean. He molested that child and he knows it. She is not going to tell the world he molested her if he didn't. So j dormant don't be stupid.

You won't convince me no matter how many times you post this. Why would the state refuse to prosecute? Do you think they think its better to let a molester go to hurt many more children than protect one child from repeating her tale in court?
