Rape is really bad. But so is convicting someone in the court of public opinion before they have a fair trial. I haven’t seen anything in the media that doesn’t assume his guilt is a foregone conclusion. Are we as a public so horny for revenge against the Masters of The Universe that we are willing to abandon due process?

    Totally agree, that’s one of the things that drives me crazy about the Julian Assange thing, and it’s a tight rope to walk as a feminist. I get A LOT of shit for it. I don’t want to be a rape denier but convicting someone in the court of public opinion is just dangerous.
