Assumptions make an ass out of Assange-supporters

There've been a fair few posts about this in a community not far away but I thought it was time for a round-up of links on the Julian Assange rape allegations and the problematic nature of the support he's had from liberals.

Here are some links to feminist posts on the subject. (I'm skipping Naomi Wolf's post but it's referenced in some of the posts I am linking. That's because I've made a deliberate decision to link the posts I think are *good* and Wolf's was one of the problematic ones.)



I'll add more as I find them. Please share any other posts you've seen that you think rec-worthy or interesting.

Easily done! I also forgot to give Wolfe her ultimate 'e' and had to edit.

You'd have been better to refrain from editing, because she doesn't have one -- you are maybe thinking of Tom Wolfe, Gene Wolfe or Nero Wolfe?

A bit surprised that (so far) three out of three people on here don't seem to know how to spell the name of a quite significant writer on feminist issues, hoever much they may disagree with her thoughts about the Assange case...

I did know how to spell it and then I doubted myself. Never doubt yourself.

"The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt."

(Not that Sylvia Plath is necessarily someone to draw life-lessons from.)
