That line is from Razor, which fans generally agree screwed the character beyond recognition anyway. I am judging the character by her Season 2 appearance.
Well, that's a convenient load of BS. I guess we can all just disregard anything that doesn't fit our particular argument then.

You responded to Sid's comment on her allowing Gina to be raped by saying they didn't know Cylon's were genuinely emotional beings at that time. But if you simply want to induce pain as a method of torture, there are far more expedient ways of doing so than through rape. Rape was chosen specifically to exploit those emotions mentioned above. You don't need it explicitly spelled out in Razor for their motives to be obvious, in S2 or otherwise.

Nor was her portrayal in Razor significantly different than it was in Season 2. She was a dictatorial sociopath in both depictions.
'First Contact' is the tale of a man who just wants to cash in on his creation so he can get wasted on an island full of naked women, but his fans keep insisting that he's a saintly visionary who has profoundly altered the world. AKA - 'I Don't Want to be a Statue: The Gene Roddenberry Story.'
