Sorry to bump a thread, but I have a few things to say about Kristen.
Since she's applogized for her comments(that was a big news story here), it seems that some people have come out of the woodwork to support her. Victims have stood by her, and everwhere I've gone(here, IMDB, People.com and CBS news, among others), over 90% of the comments have been supportive. It seems that most people got what she said, and even those who were a little offened have owned up to the fact that Kristen has a point and that she's at least owned up to making a mistake. I also agree with Nikki Reed's comments, that people basically warped her words.
Also, some people have ripped on RAINN(a little harshly, by the way, though those people who've argued that the "A" in "RAINN" stands for abuse-which is what Kristen deals with being harassed and accousted by the paps). As I said, it's a little harsh to rip on a charity that means well and made a knee-jerk statement, but like Kristen, they do have a valid point. But what's been said has been said. Kristen applogized, RAINN retracted their statement and also apologzed, and both are trying to mend the fence.
I mean, Kristen takes so much heat, and so much of it is undeserved. She's a normal person like you or I. How would you like to have cameras stuffed in your face on a daily basis, crowded and cornered, having unfattering photos(downtop or upskirt shots) taken of you and posted all over the internet, and asked invasive questions about your lovelife and called every sexist slang that exhist to describe a woman and even being grabbed at? Four words describe this: boldface, blantant, sexual harassment. How would you react if you were treated just a fraction as badly? Women and girls have killed themselves over less. Granted, Kristen refusing to ease up and standing her ground is commendable, but it takes a lot of guts to be her, and it also took guts for her to applogize. Her bravery should be commended and cherished, not thrown away, criticized or laughed at.
So what if she gets nervous in interviews or speaches? She's human. I'll bet you that if you were in her position, you'd feel the same. The media crucfiying her over a little cough during her speach at the Oscars, like the hate that was thown at her over her misconstrued "rape" comment, is simply uncalled for.
Walk a mile in the shoes of Kristen Stewart be for you judge her, because as the line goes, "do not judge thee, unless ye also be judged." It's happend in the light of her recent controversy, and it should've happened a long time ago.
People care about you, Kristen. I know that you realize that(and no, I haven't gone psycho, just stating my opinion), and don't let people tear you down, because those people are ugly, terrible people on the inside, and it shows.
