Julian Assange, 256-Bit Cassanova

This article is worth a skim if you care about the rape/rape-rape allegations against Julian Assange, but I guess I was most taken by Julian Assange's alleged line:

She says they had consensual sex but she woke up the next morning to find him having intercourse with her to which she had not consented.

When she asked him if he was wearing anything, he had allegedly said: "I am wearing you."

That's pimp. The line I mean, not the rape. Gotta give him that.

He claims:

Mr Assange regards himself as a victim of radicalism. "Sweden is the Saudi Arabia of feminism," he said. "I fell into a hornets' nest of revolutionary feminism."

Not exactly. According to him, this is just the vengeance of jilted women:

He said he believed his accusers became angry when the younger woman, Miss W, contacted Miss A and they realised he had been to bed with both of them in swift succession. They went to the police station together, apparently to seek advice. A policewoman who heard their stories is said to have suggested they could pursue criminal charges.

...but the second woman claims she specifically told him to stop after she awoke to find him on top of her, and he didn't. So, he hadn't had consent -- I guess a sort of implied consent in his mind, but not actual consent -- and even if you give him a pass on that, that non-consent was followed up with an affirmative denial of consent. But he kept going and, um, "finished up," despite that.

Maybe some date-rape charges are a bit grey-area, but this charge doesn't seem gray-area, if true. It sounds like rape.
