I finally got around to making a comic about the whole Wiki Leaks and Julian Assange mess.
For those of you wondering why Australia got the role as Assange, itâ€™s simply because Assange is Australian.

No use in trying to talk sense to the true believers. They have their own little world where Assange is a shining hero beyond criticism and trying to bring him to court, were all of this can be settled in the proper manner is persecution. Assanges excuses are pathetic: "They will extradite me to America we're i'll get the death penalty", no we won't, because that would be a blatant violation of the Swedish constitution. "I don't understand the language", ever heard of a translator? We'll give you one for free, Dumbass. And EVERYONE in Sweden knows basic English.
This is actually a disturbing trend i noticed, with English, Australian and American men among others from the English speaking world, coming over here and basically acting like sex tourists. When they find out that Swedish girls aren't sluts but rather tough and independent and don't grab their ankles for the first pasty Australian computer nerd they see, they start crying and whining about "Feminism" and "Socialism". Absolutely no respect for our country or our laws. Throw Assanges pervert ass in Jail and then maybe we can find out if he really doesn't mind Swedens rape laws after all.
By the way Australia. Aren't you the ones who are censoring your Internet and more or less have a blanket ban on video games? Tell me who the Socialist are, again.

, this is political satire though. So there will always be thoughts like this in connection with this. Here in the UK, we have a whole industry effectively doing this. It's funny, but always underlines disturbing problems.
That is the way of this art.

Karen, this is a webcomic. Your concerns would be better placed where people might pay more attention to them, rather than here where they just have a quick laugh looking at a few funny pictures.

Honestly, that's not what America's diary would read about those countries, except for maybe France. The entries about France would also include "France was really mean to me today. S/he's kinda conceited" or something like that. Also, Germany's would be more like "Went to Oktoberfest. Got super drunk. Those Germans really know how to make beer! But why are they not wearing lederhosen?!" And we don't have many interactions with Italians, so that entry might be more like "I think Italy still has a mafia, but I can't tell...he makes great spaghetti though!"
Lol. I'm sure the other countries' diaries would be much more entertaining.

This comic bothers me more and more with time. The attitude is basically "Who gives a rats arse that literally half a dozen courts in two countries have ruled against him in the rape case, clearly they're wrong and he's innocent and the girls are just lying sluts!" Because famous people who write on their blog about how they're a god to women and women's brains can't do math, a guy who stands accused of sexually harassing even whistleblowers he was working with, a guy who already had accusations of stalking against him before he got famous... such people *never* commit rape, clearly!
No, obviously, let's all pile up against the women having their day in court because we like defendent's unrelated work. Surely we've NEVER seen this "if we like the guy then the girls are lying sluts and screw what the courts say" pattern before, heavens no...
Heck, in his court hearings his attorneys have all but admitted that he did it. Emmerson (one of his attorneys) even stated that Assange starting to F* SW while she was sleeping wasn't really rape because she didn't immediately push him out when she woke up. Ignoring that the reason she'd been refusing unprotected sex with him all night was fear of pregnancy and disease and it had thus become too late to prevent the need for having to go to the hospital for tests, not to mention the whole shock aspect, *his attorneys admitted that he started F*ing unprotected a girl who there's written (SMS) and spoken (testimony from friends she talked to) proof of her having spent the whole evening repeatedly refusing unprotected sex*, using the fact that SW was sleeping to work around her refusal of consent. Which is legally rape in almost any country in the world, including Sweden, and *damn well should be*. Sleep is NOT consent, PERIOD. Nor does a person finding out that someone started F*ing them against their will in their sleep and going into shock make the act of F*ing them in their sleep into "consent".
But hey, let's all write comics playing down rape and presenting the guy we like as being set up in contradiction with repeated court rulings...
There's so damned much I could say, but I'll just leave it at this quote (among so, so many) from Assange's ghostwriter, who spent a great deal of time with him during his hearings in the UK:
"The three of us went to a very pink café in the town and ordered sandwiches and cakes. We sat outside, and Julian got distracted by some young girls walking past. ‘Hold on,’ he said, and turned his gaze. ‘No,’ he said. ‘It was fine until I saw the teeth.’ One of the girls was wearing a brace. When Sarah came back and asked what we were talking about, Julian said he’d been admiring some 14-year-old girls, ‘until they came close’."
Yeah, great f'ing guy to make a hero out of and to support his fleeing of rape charges.
