Bits and bobs from a British glasses-wearing, sweary, fat, disabled, atheist ex-Catholic, anti-capitalist, pacifist feminist lesbian with eclectic tastes.
I normally blog at incurable-hippie.blogspot.com.
And then I read this and realised that I knew nothing about Naomi. Were I home I would look that stuff up
and there’s a write-up of her discussion with Jaclyn Friedman afterwards: http://boingboing.net/2010/12/14/naomi-wolf-on-rape-j.html
Here she is making the case against anonymity: http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2011/jan/05/julian-assange-sex-crimes-anonymity
Here’s one of the (MANY) call-outs about the fact that Naomi Wolf had been blatantly lying to make the accusations seem not-quite-so-bad: http://studentactivism.net/2010/12/20/naomi-wolf-on-julian-assange/
One of the other articles about how full of shit she is and how she doesn’t meet the minimum standard for being a decent human being, much less a feminist. http://msmagazine.com/blog/blog/2011/01/14/crying-naomi-wolf-over-rape/
I’m tagging this because a lot of people still celebrate Naomi Wolf as this amazing White Cis feminist who we should all support without question because of course white ladies in feminism are always worth celebrating.
She is literally pro-rape, she can’t even get that bit right. She didn’t back down from all this shit even after Assange admitted to rape. http://studentactivism.net/2011/07/12/assange-lawyer-concedes/
