Yeah, he did something that you think was heroic, so he gets a free pass to abuse women. I'm sure you wouldn't dismiss all allegations of nonconsentual sex, just those against someone you like. And going for the 'well, the crime isn't technically classed as rape but as a type of sexual assault' for the defense pretty much speaks for itself.
