Ah, Julian Assange – an alleged rapist that the Left finally looks up to. Even admires. Take leftist icon and well know cat impersonator “Gorgeous” George Galloway;
Galloway claimed that the allegations against Julian Assange, even if they were “100 per cent true, and even if a camera in the room captured them”, “don’t constitute rape”. At least “not rape as anyone with any sense can possibly recognise it”
Interesting, pray share your wisdom…
“Woman A met Julian Assange, invited him back to her flat, gave him dinner, went to bed with him, had consensual sex with him. Claims that she woke up to him having sex with her again. This is something which can happen, you know. I mean not everybody needs to be asked prior to each insertion. Some people believe that when you go to bed with somebody, take off your clothes, and have sex with them and then fall asleep, you’re already in the sex game with them. It might be really bad manners not to have tapped her on the shoulder and said, “do you mind if I do it again?”. It might be really sordid and bad sexual etiquette, but whatever else it is, it is not rape or you bankrupt the term rape of all meaning.
Bad sexual etiquette!!! Hope every alleged rapist does not decide to follow that line of defence.
As has been pointed out;
Let’s be clear. The alleged facts of Assange’s case notwithstanding, the situation Galloway has just described is absolutely, 100 per cent, no-ifs-or-buts definitely rape. A woman wakes up to find a man having sex with her. She was unconscious at the time. It was literally impossible for her to consent. Having sex with someone once does not give them carte blanche to have sex with you again; the woman is entitled to change her mind between “insertions” (yuck, George. Yuck), and what is more she is entitled to expect the man to wait until she is sufficiently conscious to state whether or not she has changed her mind. That is what “consent” involves. Giving it once is not a waiver of one’s right to refuse it in future.
Some on the Left like to allege that every man is a potential rapist. But here, we have a man accused of rape and the Left rally around him heralding him as saviour of the Western world. It is a remarkable double standard. I have no idea IF Assange is guilty or not, but I am certain he should be afforded the chance to prove his innocence – in a Swedish court.
