While the blogosphere has been set on fire by the controversy, a new debate is emerging around the rape and sexual assault charges pending against WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, in Sweden. Feministe has a great entry on the politics of rape, misogyny, and the law (both U.S. & Sweden) that puts proper perspective on the allegations and the public's reaction to them.
Relatedly, Dissenting Justice has written an unequivocal post calling out some progressive's antiquated sexual politics in their rush to defend Assange.
These critiques will be sharpened once more is known about the allegations and more legal analysis surfaces about Swedish rape law. Nonetheless, it's a very interesting story of which to keep track.
