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.

Of course, Assange is innocent until proven guilty. Nothing I've linked to contradicts that. But the way the justice system works means that accusers should also be considered truthful until judged untruthful. This might seem contradictory but it's a matter of not prejudging a trial.

Please note that anonymous comments are screened here - so the mods can judge whether or not they are appropriate for the community. I've unscreened this because it wasn't abusive but I wonder why you thought it needed saying?
