Dear Interpol:

As a longtime feminist activist, I have been overjoyed to discover your new commitment to engaging in global manhunts to arrest and prosecute men who behave like narcissistic jerks to women they are dating.

I see that Julian Assange is accused of having consensual sex with two women, in one case using a condom that broke. I understand, from the alleged victims' complaints to the media, that Assange is also accused of texting and tweeting in the taxi on the way to one of the women's apartments while on a date, and, disgustingly enough, 'reading stories about himself online' in the cab.

Both alleged victims are also upset that he began dating a second woman while still being in a relationship with the first. (Of course, as a feminist, I am also pleased that the alleged victims are using feminist-inspired rhetoric and law to assuage what appears to be personal injured feelings. That's what our brave suffragette foremothers intended!).

Thank you again, Interpol. I know you will now prioritize the global manhunt for 1.3 million guys I have heard similar complaints about personally in the US alone -- there is an entire fraternity at the University of Texas you need to arrest immediately. I also have firsthand information that John Smith in Providence, Rhode Island, went to a stag party -- with strippers! -- that his girlfriend wanted him to skip, and that Mark Levinson in Corvallis, Oregon, did not notice that his girlfriend got a really cute new haircut -- even though it was THREE INCHES SHORTER.

Terrorists. Go get 'em, Interpol!

Yours gratefully,

Naomi Wolf.

I burst out laughing at every phrase :lol: just couldn't help myself, in the middle of the office,THANKS Dude. :evil:

Actually meu tio é policial federal e já lidou com terroristas internacionais prontos para deportação para os EUA.
Disse que é a primeira vez que a Interpol manda um aviso para a PF (e mais o quinto dos inferno) atrás de alguém acusado de "crimes sexuais". :?

I know "date rape" is a most serious offense. I guess "state rape" is even worse.

Muito mais aqui, e bem interessante, sobre Julian Assange, começando com uma entrevista em Berkeley em abril de 2010, em https://zunguzungu.wordpress.com/
A entrevista está transcrita, para melhor acompanhamento. O inglês australiano dele é fácil de entender, e o que ele tem a dizer é bem pensado, na minha opinião.
And there is more on Assange, the leaks, etc., later on in the same blog.
Lots of material here to spruce up your polemicist's English.

here's an interesting video of Julian doing an interview as part of a TED Talk:

There should be subtitles in english and portuguese
