F*ing a sleeping girl to work around her explicit and repeated refusal to consent to your preferred form of sex (what Assange is charged with, #4 on the EAW) IS RAPE [...]
No. Julian Assange has not been charged.
Let me repeat that in bold-face for added emphasis, because this is a crucial point without which none of this fiasco makes any sense.
Julian Assange has not been charged.
I'll wait for you to catch up with that before I go on. Got it? Good, now I'll continue.
Extraditing people without charge is a highly controversial practice, and widely considered to be an abuse of human rights. This year, the UK passed an amendment to the Extradition Act which bans it. Unfortunately for him, his case is grandfathered, since it's already been through the highest level of court.
Assange is wanted for questioning, no more and no less. This warrant was issued because he refused to travel to Sweden for questioning at his own expense (which is what the prosecutors wanted). Said prosecutors have known exactly where he has been for the last four years and has consistently refused to question him in any of those places despite his legal team making the offer many times.
If he is ever convicted of what he's been accused of, then he absolutely deserves his day in court and whatever punishment the court sees fit. Right now, it's hard to see how the Swedish prosecutors could be said to be acting in anything resembling good faith.
What he's accused of is serious, make no mistake. But right now, Julian Assange has not even been charged.
