Listen, we’re not posting this as proof of anything, except that life can imitate art and vice versa.

As Twitchy reported, Anderson Cooper quickly cut to a commercial after his interview subject, E. Jean Carroll, disagreed with Cooper’s characterization of rape as an act of violence, instead suggesting that most people think it’s “sexy.” That made for one awkward pause.

Twitter user @thebradfordfile then dug up this clip from “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.” The detectives are interviewing a man who’s hired to play out women’s rape fantasies, and he mentions one in particular that took place … in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room.

No, for real.

Yes way.

We’re not sayin’ … we’re just sayin’. It’s interesting, that’s all.

Yes, intriguing.
