I can't see Assange facing a great deal of injustice in the Swedish courts, I can see him easily experiencing due process of law, and having all his human rights respected at all points of this affair. If he is found guilty, he will find himself in a prison where he will again have all his human rights respected by the institution he'll be incarcerated in, and he will not have to stay there particularly long once appeals are taken into account because he's only been charged with rape, not something with a particularly long sentence.

Whatever the hell he does for wikileaks will not actually be affected – one of the side effects of his constantly moving about is that whatever he does can still be done remotely from prison. The worst case scenario that can result from him being arrested isn't exactly bad.

So while the fact that Interpol considers Assange's arrest as big a deal as that of convicted child rapist Roman Polanski is undeniable bullshit, and while the attacks on Wikileaks are wrong, none of this is actually a genuine injustice.

There are far too many people in prison and who have suffered worse than prison as a result of genuine injustices, like having confessions either falsified or extracted under torture, or due to falsified evidence put up against them, or of racist police supported by racist judges and racist jurors obtaining convictions for such injustices.

I've used "rapefic" in that last post as though it's far more expansive than it usually is taken to be, this is because all of the behaviour that is getting all sorts of fancy eupahmisms thrown at them is rape.

I know people prefer "dub-con" or "non-con" or even "abduction" but the proper term for what occurs in these fics is "rape".
Raaaaaay-ayaaaaaaaayape, a pretty... little... rape. )
