      ... to, if a person refuses to consent to a particular sexual activity, to wait until they fall asleep and then do it to them.  Like George Galloway (who still refuses to apologize for his "you don't have to be asked prior to each insertion" comments).

      I have no tolerance for bare rape-apologism like that.  To me that's so much worse than even Akin's "legitimate rape" comment.  In Akin's mind, there's a problem with lots of women lying about rape to have an excuse to get an abortion.  In Galloway's mind, once a girl does anything with you, you can do whatever you want to her.  To me that latter meme is more dangerous.  It's the attitude that most rapists take.

        This little boys' power-trip will totally vitiate any progressive movement that tolerates it.

        They're like the guy Dylan describes in his line:

        'You just want to be on the side that's winning'.

        but the other party should at least be awake and thus able to issue objections which MUST be obeyed if it isn't to be rape.

        I have never been fond of Assange. Yes, some fo the stuff he leaked might be interesting and shed some light on the behind-the-scenes diplomatic world--but who appointed him  the World Decider of what gets released? In some ways he shares Dubya's arrogance.

        ANd he used Bradley Manning, knowing what would happen if he were caught and he had to guess at the man's mental health issues and he manipulated the poor guy into Leavenworth.

        The cat thing kinda summed it all up for me. I have evicted guests from my home for less.  I tend to figure if they'll mistreat someone else's animal, they'll be meaner to humans.

        The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.

        •  Then there's the recent attention-seeking (0+ / 0-)

          stuff... like the "childish prank" where they made a fake New York Times website and a twitter account that looked like that of a NYT journalist and posted a fake op-ed supporting Assange in the name of a NYT journalist... or more recently the comments on killing of the US ambassador to Libya.

          It's just sad to see what it's become.  I had so much hope for Wikileaks in the early days.  And some of the things they did were so important; transparency is a critical cause on the global scale.  But the organization has just driven into the ground.  Hopefully some of the new leaks organizations can take up the slack.

      Digressive thread.

      "Minus two votes for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.
