Director Bryan Singer, Long Accused of Hosting Underage Sex Parties, Sued for Rape of 17 Year Old Boy

Not statutory rape, but actual rape -- allegedly.

Singer has been accused before -- sometimes with the accusations being withdrawn and/or dismissed under circumstances that suggest maybe they were false in the first place. But Brett Easton Ellis, one-time bad boy 80s author and current contrarian podcaster, says that two of his former "partners" (which I think means boyfriends) told him they attended Singer's "underage sex parties."

Singer is cited in the 2014 documentary film on child sexual abuse in Hollywood, An Open Secret, although the film makes no specific allegations against him. Author Bret Easton Ellis alleges that two of his former partners have attended underage sex parties hosted by Singer and fellow director Roland Emmerich.

Now another lawsuit is launched:

The lawsuit, filed by Cesar Sanchez-Guzman's attorney, alleges that Singer was at a party, with young gay men, on tech investor Lester Waters' yacht in Seattle in 2003.

It claims that Singer offered to take a then-17 Guzman on a tour of the yacht, but when they got to one of the rooms, the director allegedly forced the teen to the floor, shoved his crotch against Guzman's face and demanded he perform oral sex.

Guzman goes onto say in the lawsuit, that Singer then pulled out his penis and forced it into his mouth, causing him to choke as he begged him to stop.

Singer allegedly forcibly performed oral sex on Guzman, who repeatedly told him to stop, before he anally raped him, according to the lawsuit.

The suit states that Singer later threatened Guzman, telling him he was a powerful Hollywood producer and that he could hire people to ruin his alleged victim's reputation.

Singer strenuously denies all claims.

Singer was recently fired from the Queen biopic "Boheman Rhapsody" for, allegedly, his "sudden availability," by which they mean he just wasn't showing up for the job. Singer disputed that claim in an impromptu interview with a papparazzo from TMZ, but said he didn't want to get into the actual reasons for the firing, which would be "inaccurate and embarrassing."

I don't know if Singer is guilty or innocent. But the Harvey Weinstein matter really changed my basic worldview.

As a conservative, and not really a libertarian conservative by inclination, I tend to support the existing order and assume that institutions charged with protecting that order are overwhelmingly fair.

I had previously viewed claims of widespread, endemic corruption and the license of the rich and connected as far-fetched, even conspiracy theorish. Great for movie plots, but not very realistic.

Sure, there must be corruption and payoffs here and there -- no system made by humans would lack that -- but it would isolated and rare.

But then came Harvey Weinstein -- and we see that, in fact, the institutions we think are generally fair and just in upholding the established order are in fact corrupt and riddled stem-to-stern with an agenda to protect not our collective favored order, but their own idea of what that order should be.

And sometimes, what they think that order should be is determined by the hand stuffing cash into their pockets.

And when I say "sometimes" I mean, I think now, "usually."

And then there's Mueller, to prove this still further.

This is a parlous time for our country. When people who are inherently biased towards believing institutions like DA's offices, cops, and the FBI -- people who are almost genetically programmed to have a bourgeois sort of outlook on the general benevolence of the established order -- decide, like radicals and many members of the underclass, that the entire game is corrupt and rigged in favor of a special few's caste privileges -- how many people are left, exactly, to support the established order?
