to mark stephens and jennifer robinson of the assange defense2-14-11 
dear FSI mark stephens, i was extremely moved that you took time to reply to myprevious letter and offer of support!!! good work and best of luck!!!! some thoughts towards the defense: as widely circulated are such reports of assange saying "sweden is thesaudia arabia of feminism" or the awkward moment in which assange seemed to say rape is a trivialthing (compared to the large scale HR abuses of war) on larry king i think it would behoove the defense to assert a very proactivesupport of women's safety and equality and in so doing transcend the hyperbuzz which would frame him as misogynist and if indeed he has behaved as such or spoken as such, he might nolonger in the future as can be best advised. i am in sweden now and following the case as well as internationalcomparative law. as a rape survivor and a firm wikileaks supporter, as a feminist andas a libertine, i feel the debate is skewed by negative stereotypes of sweden as well as of consensual polyamorous behavior, which i fullysupport, despite the puritanical bend of mainstream prurientvoyeuristic western culture. i would like to reaffirm my support of your defense. also the twitter skype surveille issue came not as a surprise at all
 
after studying american surveillance investments in social media. i considered it more a laundering thru the process of tech-slow law,what would be ordinary. your document prep is extensive and astute and i enjoyed following thetwitter streams of the evidence. if there is anything i can do from here or anywhere else in thefuture, i am completely beholden to the wl zeitgeist shift as itensues. i think the case can be strengthened with extreme expression of support for women, all rape survivors, and towards a future withouttorture of these various physical and psychological kinds. the impact of the rove strategy as a part of the larger americanmisogynistic war on women is very clear. i feel the psychological effects of false charges to be irreparable,and the breaches of swedish law and pretense to secrecy to be anextreme abrogation of justice as well as laughablyincompetent/malfeasant. i think the activism which would crucify the innocent (for the greater good? of women future tense or for war $$$) operates in the samepost-ethical power dynamic as does wl.in this i see us all to win, women, and wikileaks. the case will be watertight when a firm commitment to women is re-established. also an effect towards the los angeles lawyers guild mention of Military Sexual Trauma as a reason to sue to keep military out of university for recruitment---or the high military rape rate----as solicitingfor a proven high rape rate in US military
