First, I thought Valley Girl behavior went out in the 80s. Second, why does she keep looking up? Is she waiting for lightning to strike her? (I was waiting for that, too.) And this quote is priceless: “When you’re having sex with someone you don’t know very well, really really messed up stuff happens.” Move over, Stephen Hawking. You’ve been deposed.
The lesson here, once again, is that it’s not rape (that is, it’s not rape-rape) when the left otherwise supports you. Bill Clinton, Roman Polanski, and now Julian Assange make the pattern quite clear. Rape accusations mean nothing unless they already oppose you. As a little thought exercise, let’s imagine for a moment if a woman leveled these accusations against Karl Rove instead of the Hero of Wikileaks. She claimed that he removed her clothes roughly enough to snap her necklace during what started as a consensual sexual encounter. She “tried to put on some articles of clothing as it was going too quickly and uncomfortably but Assange ripped them off again.” She didn’t want to carry on with it but “it was too late to stop Assange as she had gone along with it so far.” Upon realizing that he wasn’t using a condom, she tried to reach for one but Assange forcibly restrained her. Finally he used a condom, but ripped it and then ejaculated without withdrawing. These are accusations; nothing is proved and Assange should be considered innocent until proven guilty. But had a woman accused Karl Rove of these things, feminists would be screaming like a goth in the sun for frogmarches and probably summary execution.
Instead, these accusations are summed up by Naomi Wolf as behaving like a “narcissistic jerk,” while these two top feminist bloggers casually describe it as “messed-up… creepy” behavior. If you want to subject yourself to more of this tripe – for example, if you never attended a Womyn’s Studies class or seminar and you’re curious to see what that would be like – here’s another clip.
