The Promiscuous Life of Julian Assange

julian-assange-300x253Should we be concerned with Assange’s sex life? Is it deserving of the media attention or is it taking away from what WikiLeaks’ leaks? Via Daily Mail:

The two women who say they were sexually assaulted by the WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange would never have complained to police if he had agreed to take an HIV test, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

WikiLeaks’s Swedish co-ordinator, who worked closely with Mr Assange for months, said in an exclusive interview that he repeatedly begged his boss to have the test, both to head off the possible police investigation and for Mr Assange’s own peace of mind, given his promiscuous sex life.

‘The two women told me, that if he goes to the clinic for an HIV test, then we won’t go to the police,’ said Mr Assange’s colleague, who wishes to remain anonymous because he is a witness in the case brought by Swedish prosecutors, which led to Mr Assange spending nine days in Wandsworth Prison pending extradition.

    FWIW, my assessment is that Assange is a narcissist.

    Clinically speaking, I mean: narcissistic personality disorder.

    Considering his behavior from this perspective makes a lot of sense, and seems to explain most of his behavior. Because narcissists lack ‘meta-cognition,’ they can’t analyze their own thinking or sympathize with others.

    Assange’s me-against-the-world attitude is typical of narcissists. Like most narcissists, Assange portrays himself as a victim He doesn’t say, ‘I made some choices and understand that some people might disagree or that there might be legal consequences — so be it.’ Rather, he bitches and moans about any consequences for his choices. His sexual selfishness (and his creepy OK Cupid profile) are also strong evidence of narcissism.

    all this armchair psychoanalyzing of him i’m seeing is retarded. what world do you people live in where mentally healthy people don’t sometimes or in some cases frequently act selfishly or make poor decisions or whatever? and when you’re the spokesman for wikileaks having a me-against-the-world (or maybe the-world-against-me) attitude seems pretty justified

      Thank you, brother! You put the entire WikiLeaks “crime” in a nutshell. A huge number of envious, insecure men who normally treat liberal women like dirt are suddenly ever-so-eager to defend our right to be treated with respect.

      I don’t know any militant feminist battle-axes who’d kick Julian Assange out of bed, including my bright, beautiful daughters and their woman friends. If he can’t get a date on that side of the pond, he’ll find no shortage of hot American women who’d be happy to let him rape them.

      As for all of you green-eyed neocons smearing Assange and Manning, to paraphrase Bob Dylan:

      We see through your eyes
      We see through your brains
      Like we see through the water
      That runs down our drains

      The same with their female counterparts like Sarah Palin and Ann Coulter. I’m a long-time feminist and human rights activist and disgusted by their hypocrisy. So are most woman I know. We know the difference between disrespectful and respectful men, and rape and passion.

      Naomi Wolf and Naomi Klein, both feminists, strongly support Assange. I think it’s funny that female conservatives are as envious of them as their male counterparts are of Julian Assange. They’re not only much more intelligent and knowledgeable, but very attractive women.

      The neocons want to make it a crime for liberals to be smart, good-looking and sexy. They paint Brad Manning as a dangerous criminal because he’s a genius and gay, outwitted their highest-level ITsecurity experts,and exposed them as criminals, not because of any crimes he allegedly committed. They seem to view liberals who outshine them in any way as personally attacking them. As an activist, I see it all the time.

      Many of my associates and I have been targeted for character assassination for the same reasons, not the reasons they tell the public. They stoop as low as it takes in attempts to make us look bad.

      ‘m disgusted by these below-the-belt smear campaigns against Assange and Manning anyway but the hypocrisy of those engaging in them makes my blood boil. .

      The records show that Julian was more respectful toward the women he had sex with than most guys. When I was younger I worked in a night club that featured big musicians like Eric Clapton, Tina Turner, B.B. King, etc.

        I’m still trying to calculate the exact moment it retroactively became rape/molestation. If a person can’t distinguish between sex and rape until the second round of intercourse…they’re doing it very very wrong or having way too good a time to tell the difference.

        I’ve known people who were raped…they knew they were being raped right away…like…instantly. It wasn’t in doubt and in need of clarification.

        So I guess what truly offends me is the insult to actual victims. This grotesque freakshow of fraud and collusion and lies is a slap to the face of everyone who has ever been legitimately victimized.

        (PS…love the Naomi’s. Great authors of our time, man.)
