Stalk: Julian Assange’s corny, kind of sexist OKCupid profile from 2006

You know, Julian Assange really isn't so different from you and me — back when he wasn't busy tweaking plans to make thousands of classified documents public or allegedly having condom-less sex in Sweden, Assange was just another lonely internet user, looking for love. And trying to avoid "asian teengirl stalkers."  Such are the revelations from what appears to be his real OKCupid profile from 2006, before Assange had fully fashioned himself as an international man of mystery and when he still went by "Harry Harrison" as a pseudonym on the dating site, where he sold himself as such: "Passionate and often pig-headed activist intellectual seeks siren for love affair, children and occasional criminal conspiracy."

Aside from the unexplained quip about his underage Asian "stalkers" and a reference to what he deems his own "unusual presence," the profile is actually pretty run-of-the-mill, and thus probably real. It does, however, reveal Assange to be eighty-seven percent "slut" by the site's calculations, and gets a little awkward when he says that he spends his time "directing a consuming, dangerous human-rights project which is, as you might expect, male-dominated," and in the "I'm really good at" section writes, "A gentleman never tells." Ew.

But this wouldn't be an online dating profile if we didn't head straight for pics, and, lucky for us, this web-savvy individual didn't miss an opportunity to take some good old-fashioned Photobooth shots. Now really, how could international authorities stay mad at a face like this? Check the image below for a full screencap of the profile.
