"Love in the West is consumerist – we choose a partner to give us what we think we need. But Russians do things differently."

Article 'Romantic regimes' by Polina Aronson, a sociologist who was born in St Petersburg and lives in Berlin. Published here: https://aeon.co/essays/russia-against-the-western-way-of-love

In 1996 I left Russia for the first time to spend a school year in the United States. It was a prestigious scholarship; I was 16 and my parents were very excited about the possibility of my somehow slipping into Yale or Harvard afterwards. I, however, could think of only one thing: getting an American boyfriend.
In my desk, I kept a precious document of American life, sent to me by a friend who had moved to New York a year earlier: an article about the Pill, ripped from the US girls’ magazine Seventeen. I read it lying in bed, feeling my throat getting dry. Staring into its glossy pages, I dreamed that there, in a different country, I would turn into someone beautiful, someone boys turned their heads for. I dreamed that I would need this kind of pill, too.
Two months later, on my first day at Walnut Hills High School in Cincinnati, Ohio, I went to the library and borrowed a stack of Seventeens that stood taller than me. I was determined to find out precisely what happened between American boys and girls when they started liking each other, and what I was supposed to say and do in order to reach the stage when ‘the Pill’ would prove necessary. Armed with a highlighter and a pen, I looked for words and expressions that had to do with American conduct in courtship and wrote them out on separate cards, just like my English teacher in St Petersburg had taught me.
I soon gathered that the lifecycle of a Seventeen-approved relationship went through several clear stages. First, you developed a ‘crush’, normally on a boy a year or two older than yourself. Then, you asked around a bit to establish whether he was a ‘cutie’ or a ‘moron’. If he was the former, Seventeen gave you thumbs up to ‘hook up’ with him once or twice after ‘asking him out’. Throughout the process, several boxes needed to be ticked: did you feel like the young man ‘respected your needs’? Were you comfortable ‘asserting your rights’ – in particular, refusing or initiating ‘body contact’? How was the ‘communication’? If any of the boxes remained unticked, you would ‘dump’ him and start looking for a replacement, until someone who was ‘good boyfriend material’ came along. Then you would start ‘making out on the couch’ and graduate into a Pill‑user.
Sitting in the American school library, I stared at my dozens of handwritten notes and saw an abyss opening up: a gulf between the ideals of love that I had grown up with and the exotic stuff I was now encountering. Where I came from, boys and girls were ‘falling in love’ and ‘seeing each other’; the rest was a mystery. The teen film drama that my generation of Russians grew up with – a socialist replica of Romeo and Juliet set in a Moscow commuter neighbourhood – was deliciously unspecific when it came to declarations of love. To express his feelings for the heroine, the protagonist recited the multiplication tables: "Two times two is four. It is as certain as my love. Three times three is nine. That means you are mine. And two times nine is 18, and that’s my favourite number because at 18 we will get married."
What else was there to say? Not even our 1,000-page Russian novels could match the complexity of Seventeen’s romantic system. When engaging in love affairs, the countesses and officers were not exactly eloquent; they acted before they spoke, and afterwards, if they weren’t dead as a result of their hasty undertakings, they gazed around speechless and scratched their heads in search of explanations.
Although I did not yet have a PhD in sociology, it turned out that what I had been doing with the copies of Seventeen was exactly the kind of work that sociologists of emotion perform in order to understand how we conceptualise love. By analysing the language of popular magazines, TV shows and self-help books and by conducting interviews with men and women in different countries, scholars including Eva Illouz, Laura Kipnis and Frank Furedi have demonstrated clearly that our ideas about love are dominated by powerful political, economic and social forces. Together, these forces lead to the establishment of what we can call romantic regimes: systems of emotional conduct that affect how we speak about how we feel, determine ‘normal’ behaviours, and establish who is eligible for love – and who is not.
The clash of romantic regimes was precisely what I was experiencing on that day in the school library. The Seventeen girl was trained for making decisions about whom to get intimate with. She rationalised her emotions in terms of ‘needs’ and ‘rights’, and rejected commitments that did not seem compatible with them. She was raised in the Regime of Choice. By contrast, classic Russian literature (which, when I was coming of age, remained the main source of romantic norms in my country), described succumbing to love as if it were a supernatural power, even when it was detrimental to comfort, sanity or life itself. In other words, I grew up in the Regime of Fate.
These two regimes are based on opposing principles. Both of them turn love into an ordeal in their own ways. Nevertheless, in most middle-class, Westernised cultures (including contemporary Russia), the Regime of Choice is asserting itself over all other forms of romance. The reasons for this appear to lie in the ethical principles of neo-liberal, democratic societies, which regard freedom as the ultimate good. However, there is strong evidence that we need to re-consider our convictions, in order to see how they might, in fact, be hurting us in invisible ways.
To understand the triumph of choice in the romantic realm, we need to see it in the context of the Enlightenment’s broader appeal to the individual. In economics, the consumer has taken charge of the manufacturer. In faith, the believer has taken charge of the Church. And in romance, the object of love has gradually become less important than its subject. In the 14th century, gazing at Laura’s golden tresses, Petrarch had called the recipient of his affections ‘divine’ and believed her to be the most sublime proof of God‘s existence. Some 600 years later, another man bedazzled by a different heap of golden tresses – Thomas Mann’s Gustav von Aschenbach – concluded that it was he, not the handsome Tadzio, who was the touchstone of love:
"[T]he lover was nearer the divine than the beloved; for the god was in the one but not in the other – perhaps the tenderest, most mocking thought that ever was thought, and source of all the guile and secret bliss the lover knows."
This observation from Mann’s novella Death in Venice (1912) encapsulates a great cultural leap that occurred somewhere close to the beginning of the 20th century. Somehow, the Lover pushed the Beloved from the centre of attention. The divine, unknowable and unreachable Other is no longer the subject of our love stories. Instead, we are interested in the Self, with all its childhood traumas, erotic dreams and idiosyncrasies. Examining and protecting this fragile Self by teaching it to pick its affections properly is the main project of the Regime of Choice – a project brought to fruition using a popularised version of psychotherapeutic knowledge.
The most important requirement for choice is not the availability of multiple options. It is the existence of a savvy, sovereign chooser who is well aware of his needs and who acts on the basis of self-interest. Unlike all previous lovers who ran amok and acted like lost children, the new romantic hero approaches his emotions in a methodical, rational way. He sees an analyst, reads self-help literature and participates in couples counselling. Moreover, he might learn ‘love languages’, read into neuro-linguistic programming, or quantify his feelings by marking them on a scale from 1 to 10. The American philosopher Philip Rieff called this type ‘the psychological man’. In Freud: The Mind of a Moralist (1959), Rieff describes him as "anti-heroic, shrewd, carefully counting his satisfactions and dissatisfactions, studying unprofitable commitments as the sins most to be avoided". The psychological man is a romantic technocrat who believes that the application of the right tools at the right time can straighten out the tangled nature of our emotions.
This, of course, applies to both genders: the psychological woman also follows the rules, or, rather The Rules: Time-tested Secrets for Capturing the Heart of Mr Right (1995). Here are just some of the time-tested secrets assembled by its authors Ellen Fein and Sherrie Schneider:
Rule 2. Don’t Talk to a Man First (and Don’t Ask Him to Dance) Rule 3. Don’t Stare at Men or Talk Too Much Rule 4. Don’t Meet Him Halfway or Go Dutch on a Date Rule 5. Don’t Call Him and Rarely Return His Calls Rule 6. Always End Phone Calls First
The premise of The Rules is simple: because men are genetically wired to chase women, if women show them even the tiniest degree of empathy or interest, this has the effect of upsetting the biological equilibrium, ‘emasculating’ the man and reducing the woman to the status of a miserable abandoned she-animal.
The Rules has been criticised for an almost idiotic degree of biological determinism. Nevertheless, new editions continue to appear, and the ‘hard-to-get’ femininity that it advocates has become a commonplace of modern dating advice. Why does it remain so popular? The reason surely lies in its underlying message:
"One of the greatest payoffs of doing The Rules is that you grow to love only those who love you. If you have been following the suggestions in this book, you have learned to take care of yourself. […] You are busy with interests and hobbies and dating, and you are not calling or chasing men. […] You love with your head, not just your heart."
In the Regime of Choice, the no-man’s land of love – that minefield of unreturned calls, ambiguous emails, erased dating profiles and awkward silences – must be minimised. No more pondering ‘what if’ and ‘why’. No more tears. No more sweaty palms. No more suicides. No more poetry, novels, sonatas, symphonies, paintings, letters, myths, sculptures. The psychological man or woman needs only one thing: steady progress towards a healthy relationship between two autonomous individuals who satisfy each other’s emotional needs – until a new choice sets them apart.
This triumph of choice is also bolstered by socio-biological arguments. Lifelong captivity in a bad relationship, we are told, is for Neanderthals. Helen Fisher, a professor of anthropology at Rutgers University and the world’s most famous love researcher, suggests that we have outgrown our millennia-long agricultural heritage, and no longer need monogamous relationships. We are now evolutionarily impelled to seek different partners for different needs – if not simultaneously, then at different stages of our lives. Fisher celebrates the modern lack of pressure to commit: we should all, ideally, spend at least 18 months with someone to decide whether they are good for us and whether we make a good match. With the absolute availability of contraceptives, unwanted pregnancies and disease can be fully eradicated; childbearing is fully disengaged from courtship, and so we can take the time to give our potential partner a test-drive without fear of the consequences.
Compared with other historical conventions about romance, the Regime of Choice might seem like a Gore-Tex jacket next to a hair shirt. Its greatest promise is that love needn’t cause pain. According to the polemics that Kipnis develops in Against Love (2003), the only suffering the Regime of Choice recognises is the supposedly productive strain of ‘working on a relationship’: tears shed in the couples therapist‘s room, wretched attempts at conjugal sex, daily inspection of mutual needs, the disappointment of a break-up with someone who is ‘not good for you’. You are allowed to have sore muscles but you cannot have accidents. By making heartbroken lovers into the authors of their own trouble, popular advice produces a new form of social hierarchy: an emotional stratification based on the misidentification of maturity with self-sufficiency.
And this, argues Illouz, is precisely why 21st-century love still hurts. First, we lack the legitimacy of those love-torn duelists and suicides of the previous centuries. They at least enjoyed social recognition based on the general understanding of love as a mad, inexplicable force that not even the strongest minds can resist. Nowadays, yearning for a specific pair of eyes (or legs, for that matter) is no longer a valid occupation, and so one’s love pangs are exacerbated by the consciousness of one’s social and psychological inadequacy. From the perspective of the Regime of Choice, the heart-broken Emmas, Werthers and Annas of the 19th century are not simply inept lovers – they are psychologically illiterate, if not evolutionarily passé. Mark Manson, a relationship coach with more than 2 million readers online, writes:
"Romantic sacrifice is idealised in our culture. Show me almost any romantic movie and I’ll show you a desperate and needy character who treats themselves like dog shit for the sake of being in love with someone."
In the Regime of Choice, committing oneself too strongly, too early, too eagerly is a sign of an infantile psyche. It shows a worrying readiness to abandon the self-interest so central to our culture.
Second, and even more importantly, the Regime of Choice is blind to structural limitations that make some people less willing – or less able – to choose than others. This occurs not only because we have unequal endowments of what the British sociologist Catherine Hakim calls ‘erotic capital’ (that is, some of us are prettier than others). In fact, the biggest problem about choice is that whole groups of individuals might, actually, be disadvantaged by it.
Illouz, a professor of sociology at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, has argued persuasively that the individualistic appeal of the Regime of Choice tends to cast the desire for commitment as ‘loving too much’ – that is, loving against one’s own self-interest. Although enough broken-hearted men are pathologised for their ‘neediness’ and ‘inability to let go’, it is mostly women who fall into categories of ‘co-dependent’ and ‘immature’. Across class and race, they are trained to make themselves self-sufficient – to ‘not love too much’, to just ‘celebrate themselves’ (per the The Rules, above).
The trouble is, a bubble bath cannot substitute for a loving gaze or a long-awaited phone call, let alone make you pregnant – whatever Cosmo might suggest. Sure enough, you can have IVF and grow into an inspiringly mature, wonderfully independent single mother of thriving triplets. But the greatest gift of love – the recognition of one’s worth as an individual – is an essentially social matter. For that, you need a significant Other. You’ve got to drink a lot of Chardonnay to circumvent this plain fact.
But perhaps the greatest problem with the Regime of Choice stems from its misconception of maturity as absolute self-sufficiency. Attachment is infantilised. The desire for recognition is rendered as ‘neediness’. Intimacy must never challenge ‘personal boundaries’. While incessantly scolded to take responsibility for our own selves, we are strongly discouraged from taking any for our loved ones: after all, our interference in their lives, in the form of unsolicited advice or suggestions for change, might prevent their growth and self-discovery. Caught between too many optimisation scenarios and failure options, we are faced with the worst affliction of the Regime of Choice: self-absorption without self-sacrifice.
Where I come from, however, we have the opposite problem: self-sacrifice often comes without much self-examination at all. Julia Lerner, an Israeli sociologist of emotions at Ben Gurion University of the Negev, recently conducted a study into the ways that Russians talk about love. The purpose of her research was to find out whether, as a result of the post-communist, neo-liberal turn, the gap between Seventeen magazine and the Tolstoy novel had finally started to close. The answer is: not really.
Having analysed discussions in various TV talk shows, conducted interviews and done content analysis of the Russian press, she established that, to Russians, love remains "a destiny, a moral act and a value; it is irresistible, it requires sacrifice and implies suffering and pain". Indeed, whereas the concept of maturity that lies at the heart of the Regime of Choice regards romantic pain as an aberration and a sign of poor decision-making, the Russians consider maturity to be the capacity to bear that very pain, sometimes to an absurd degree.
A middle-class American who falls in love with a married woman is advised to break up with the lady and to schedule 50 hours of therapy. A Russian in a similar situation, however, storms the woman’s house and pulls her out by the hand, straight from the hob with stewing borsch, past crying children and a husband frozen with game controller in hand. Sometimes, it goes well: I know a couple who have been together happily for 15 years since the day he kidnapped her from a conjugal New Year’s feast. But in most cases, the Regime of Fate produces mess.
In terms of bulk numbers, Russians have a greater number of marriages, divorces and abortions per capita than any other developed country. These statistics document an impetus to do whatever it takes to act upon emotions, and often at the cost of one’s own comfort. Russian romance is closely accompanied by substance abuse, domestic violence and abandoned children: the by-products of lives that were never really thought through very clearly. Apparently, believing in fate each time you fall in love is not such a great alternative to excessive choice.
But to solve the afflictions of our culture, we do not need to give up on the principle of choice altogether. Instead, we must dare to choose the unknown, to take uncalculated risks and be vulnerable. By ‘vulnerability’ I do not mean the coquettish exposure of weaknesses meant to test the compatibility between you and your date. My plea is for existential vulnerability, for the re-mystification of love into what it essentially is: an unpredictable force that usually catches you unawares.
If the understanding of maturity as self-sufficiency is so detrimental to the way we love under the Regime of Choice, then it is precisely this understanding that needs to be reconsidered. To become truly adult, we need to embrace the unpredictability that loving someone other than ourselves entails. We should dare to cross those personal boundaries and run one step ahead of ourselves; not at a Russian pace, maybe, but just slightly quicker than we are used to.
So. Make loud love proposals. Move in with someone before feeling completely ready for it. Grumble at a partner for no reason and have that person grumble back, just like that, because we are human. Have a child when the timing seems bad. And finally, we need to re-claim our right to pain. Let us dare to agonise about love. As Brené Brown, a sociologist studying vulnerability and shame at the University of Houston, suggests, perhaps "our capacity for whole-heartedness can never be greater than our willingness to be broken-hearted". Rather than obsessing over the integrity of our selves, we need to learn to give parts of those selves to others – and acknowledge, finally, that we are dependent on each other, even if a Seventeen columnist might call it co-dependent.

Survivors of Sexual Violence
  1. 2014, Texas: Odessis Hudson (17) met Torres as a fan of BOTDF and became their merch girl. She lived with the band in San Diego. Whilst on tour in Texas, Torres drove her to a parking lot and forced her to perform oral sex. (Source: HuffPost, 2018)
  2. 2014, Fort Lupton, Colorado: Megan Hood (16) was contacted by Torres via Instagram. In July they went to the cinema together where Torres kissed her unexpectedly. That night he called her and at 4am he told her to go outside, stating that her phone reception was poor. She quickly realised that he was parked discreetly on her street. When she approached him, he grabbed her by the wrists and demanded she delete their text messages. When she got into his van, he stated that he couldn’t wait to “fuck her teen mouth”. He forced Megan to perform oral sex so violently that her mouth bled and clumps of her hair were ripped out. In June 2015, Torres invited Megan, then 17, to San Diego where he was then living. He purchased a one-way ticket for her and when she arrived, informed her that she would be required to perform sexual favours for him to earn her plane ticket home. Oral sex would be worth $50 towards her flight. (Source: HuffPost, 2019 and Chris Hansen Interview, 2020)
  3. 2014, San Diego, California: Madalyn (19) met Torres and they began dating for two years. He physically, emotionally and sexually abused her throughout their relationship. Torres also solicited nude photographs from her when she was underage. (Source: HuffPost, 2019)
  4. 2014, Location Unknown: Marissa M (16) initially met Torres at Warped Tour in 2011 at 14. Afterwards, he followed her on Instagram and added her to his personal Facebook account. In 2014, after a BOTDF show, Torres drove the bands tour bus to Marissa’s home around 6am. He entered the property and spoke with her mother before inviting her onto the tour bus alone. There he groped her and forced her to perform oral sex. In 2016, at 18, she attended another show where she was forced to perform oral sex. (Source: Chris Hansen Interview, 2020)
  5. 2015, San Diego, California: Emily H (18), who also spoke with Metalsucks under the pseudonym 'Evelyn', met Torres through Tinder and went on a date with him. He invited her to a party later that night at his home which she accepted. When she began to fall asleep after 1am, Torres exposed his penis and forced her to perform oral sex. She stated, “I felt defenseless. I was scared. It was really frightening… I had never been forced to do something like that in my life.” (Source: Metalsucks, 2018 and HuffPost, 2018)
  6. 2016, Cleveland, Ohio: Katie (20) met Torres after a show where he revealed that he already knew who she was. Her friend had previously been romantically involved with Torres and had sent him explicit photographs of Katie without her consent. When Torres moved to Cleveland in Fall 2016, they began spending time together. One night at 4am during a visit she awoke to Torres forcing her head towards his crotch. He forced her to perform oral sex. She later appeared in the music video for "Zero Fucks Given" by his "Sinners are Winners" project. During filming, where she was instructed to feign giving him a blowjob under a desk, he continually forced her face against his penis despite her pleading with him to stop. (Source: Metalsucks, 2018)
  7. 2016, Colorado: Ash (18), who also spoke to Metalsucks using the pseudonym ‘Belle’, first met Torres at a 2013 BOTDF show when she was 14. She began to regularly attend shows with her father whom Torres built a rapport with, referring to him as ‘dad’. In 2016 Torres attempted to arrange a meeting between them in a questionable area late at night but Ash refused as she was concerned for her safety. He reacted angrily and stopped speaking to her. When she was still 17, he began contacting her again when he discovered her Harley Quinn cosplay photos. On her 18th birthday, Torres reached out to her and quickly turned the conversation sexual by objectifying her. Two weeks later he arranged to pick her up at 4/5am to spend time together. He drove her to an isolated area, groped her and forced her to perform oral sex whilst she pleaded for him to stop. Torres attempted to excuse this as BDSM. Torres also scammed her out of $200 for a merch bundle which she did not receive. (Source: Metalsucks, 2018 and Pastel Belle Interview, 2020)
  8. 2016, Ohio: Chrissy (17) met Torres after a BOTDF show which she entered using a fake ID. She was actively encouraged by bar staff to consume alcohol even when visibly intoxicated. During the show, a member of Torres’s entourage drew his attention to Chrissy in the crowd. He proceeded to spit on her and pour Red Bull over her chest and the chest of the girl standing beside her. After the show, he asked her what age she was. When she said 21, his whole demeanour switched, and he became more aggressive. He led her back into the bar to take shots and then asked if she wanted to “go get to know each other better”. By this point she was, by her own admission, a drunken mess who was stumbling and spilling alcohol. Torres lead her to an isolated cellar within the bar, pulled her down towards him, stuck his thumb in her mouth and asked if she can “keep a secret”. She couldn't speak due to his thumb being in her mouth. He stated that he would consider her silence a yes. He grabbed her by the back of the head and forced her to perform oral sex whilst she cried and held back vomit. She managed to flee before he ejaculated. Whilst attempting to find the stairs to get away from Torres, his entourage began laughing at her and making fun of her. (Source: Pastel Belle Interview, 2020)
  9. 2016, Boyertown, Pennsylvania: Castiella Marie (16) was contacted by Torres via Instagram where he began grooming her. After a week he suggested they communicate via Snapchat instead. There he began sending her sexually explicit messages, asking her what her kinks were and if she enjoyed being tied up. By the Fall of 2016 Torres had relocated to Pennsylvania and asked Castiella to meet up. Her friend warned her against meeting him, having seen allegations of sexual assault posted about him online. She met Torres at a Starbucks and ran errands with him. Afterwards, he suggested they go for ice-cream together. On the way there he began quoting the 2009 BOTDF song “Scream For My Ice-Cream”. He parked his car in an empty parking lot, locked the doors, grabbed her hair, pried open her jaw and aggressively forced her to perform oral sex. Some time after the attack she reached out to Torres’s then partner Fallon Vendetta and provided her with proof of their conversations. Fallon doubted her story. Torres blocked her immediately. She reported the attack to the police who were dismissive. (Source: Repzilla Interview, 2020)
  10. 2016, San Diego: Elizabeth Faaborg (18) initially met Torres in 2010 at a BOTDF show and they began speaking online. When Torres moved to California in 2014, they started hanging out and she would often help him with dispatching his merch orders. Torres took her to dinner, to the movies and groomed both her and her parents. For her 18th birthday she had planned to go to Bar Sinister in LA with a group of their mutual friends. She arrived at Torres home early where he proceeded to corner her, grope her and force her to perform oral sex. He told her, “don’t ever tell anyone what happened, or I’ll kill you”. She was frightened and confused. Elizabeth asked him if he had wanted to do that to her since they first met, he stated he had, she responded, “I was 12” and Torres casually replied, “yeah I know”. Two months later, he again forced her to perform oral sex and convinced her that they would eventually be together. They stopped communicating a few months later. (Source: Chris Hansen Interview, 2020)
  11. 2016, New York: Winter (15) met Torres at a BOTDF meet and greet where she also went to dinner with him, her mother and other touring crew. After the show Torres gave her his phone number and began grooming her with compliments and explicit messages. He began to request provocative photos from her and manipulated her into engaging in sexual activities on video calls. The same year, Torres flew her and her mother to Ohio to work on his "Zero Fucks Given" music video. On the day she arrived Torres groped her, attempted to give her alcohol and forced her to perform oral sex. On the last day of her visit, on the set of the music video, Torres forced her to make out and groped her again. At the end of 2016, she travelled to Ohio again with her mother and was again forced to perform oral sex. In 2019, Torres invited her to stay with him in Florida for her 18th birthday. When she arrived at his home, Torres’s mother began arguing with him in Spanish and she was sent to stay in a run down, bug infested hotel alone where the AC and shower were broken. At the end of her trip, Torres took her to stay with a BOTDF superfan couple who "treated him like royalty", whom he financially exploited. On their way to the airport Torres forced her to perform oral sex. She ceased communication with him after this trip. (Source: Pastel Belle Interview, 2020)
  12. 2020, California: Pastel Belle Anonymous Survivor (16) met Torres via Instagram where he began grooming her. He quickly escalated to video calling her (20 phone calls in one day can be seen in a screenshot) and aggressively manipulated her into revealing her breasts whilst he was “having fun under his warm blanket”. He told her that if it weren’t for the Corona Virus pandemic that he would have flown to California to have “fun” with her. (Source: Pastel Belle Expose, 2020)
Survivors of Grooming, Inappropriate/Predatory and Abusive Behaviours
  1. 2013, New York: Alana Jayne (13), previously known as Alana Autopsy, met Torres at a BOTDF show. She attended every show they played in NYC as a VIP. Torres began contacting her via Instagram and Twitter and quickly became explicit. He began inviting her to attend shows and to go out for food together (which her parents did not allow). At a show in 2015 he signed her breasts and told her that he liked seeing his name written there. She ceased contact with him in 2016 at 16. She stated that she was scammed out of $100 for merch that did not arrive. (Source: Pastel Belle Interview, 2020)
  2. 2013/2014, Los Angeles: Siena (15) met Torres at a botdf show where he honed in on her, was extremely complimentary and watched her throughout the performance. He also signed her 15-year-old friends’ breasts. That night, her boyfriend uploaded a photo of them with Torres to Facebook, tagging him in it. He quickly added Siena and messaged her with his phone number. When he called, her mother was angry, demanding to know why an adult was calling her high school age daughter. In the coming months, he requested she send him more photos of herself, became increasingly sexually explicit and began inundating her with offers to pay for her to travel to San Diego to stay with him. She felt unsafe and repeatedly rejected these. As a result, Torres grew agitated with her. In 2015, she attended DragCon and whilst there, Torres called her. When he learnt where she was, he insisted on coming to pick her up to take her back to his home. She declined and he attempted to manipulate her. She hung up and quickly left the convention terrified that he would show up and accost her. She blocked him afterwards. (Source: Pastel Belle Interview, 2020)
  3. 2015, Battle Creek, Michigan: HuffPost Anonymous Survivor Three (13) was contacted by Torres via Facebook where he began grooming her. He attempted to meet with the child for pizza, but her grandfather refused to allow it. During subsequent phone calls Torres asked what her bra size was and what sexual fantasies she had involving him. (Source: HuffPost, 2018)
  4. 2016, Pennsylvania: Fallon Vendetta met Torres via Instagram and began communicating with him properly after Jayy left BOTDF. She began working with him professionally and soon they were dating. Fallon claims Torres used her as a cover to prove he was attracted to adults but that he wasn’t overly interested in having sex with her. He was predominantly only interested in rough oral. She told Chris Hansen that they had a roommate dynamic and did not share a bedroom. Fallon was first alerted to the sexual assault allegations when Torres wanted to do a shoot with her friend, but he refused to work with Torres based on what he discovered online. When she confronted him, he downplayed the Colorado arrest, stating that Torein had lied about her age and that it had been a consensual encounter which her parents reported out of anger. Torres also claimed that Damien was simply an “obsessed fangirl”, but that he had never met them. She claims that she never witnessed any sexually inappropriate behaviour with minors but thought it odd that he would invite young fans to dinner with them. Furthermore, Fallon stated that Torres was emotionally, financially, psychologically and, on occasion, physically abusive. She stated that he “plays chess with people” and that he “can’t survive without the Dahvie persona”. (Source: Chris Hansen Interview and Pastel Belle Interview, 2020)
  5. 2020, Location Unknown: Levi (18), a trans man, was contacted by Torres via Instagram after speaking out about the sexual assault allegations. Torres DM'd Levi stating that he could prove he was innocent and attempted to call him 6 times. When Levi answered the call Torres asked to see his breasts. When Levi stated he was male, Torres responded, “I know but you still have them”. Levi ended the call and Torres sent him a series of messages asking if he was telling people and attempted to manipulate him. He stated that he was interested in working with Levi creatively and “you would be famous”. (Source: Pastel Belle Interview, 2020)
Victims of Exploitation and Theft
  1. 2013, Connecticut: Jennifer Hill, a vocal coach and victim’s advocate, met Torres at a show she was attending to support friends, who were also performing. Torres hired her and invited her to tour with the band. Jennifer stated that whilst on tour she didn’t have her own room, the crew were isolated from one another and that the environment was cult-like as only Torres had access to a car and they could only eat when he did (Torres was in control financially and would frequently not purchase food). Furthermore, she stated that she witnessed odd interactions with teenage fans such as inviting them to dinner with the band (which she now recognises as grooming). She stopped answering Torres’s phone calls in 2018 because she could no longer cope with his demanding behaviour. By the end, she was arranging and writing his music (she wasn’t credited for this) and getting paid less and frequently late (or not at all). Torres had also pocketed the funds raised through the sale of merch for an annual festive Jennifer organised called “Support Women Artists Now” (you can read more about this here). She stated that he was a “master manipulator” who treated other performers extremely poorly and refused to pay them. (Source: Chris Hansen Interview, 2020)
  2. 2020, Location Unknown: Meadow (18), a long-term fan of BOTDF, was scammed out of $500 by Torres for merch she never received. (Source: Pastel Belle Interview, Temporarily Removed, 2020)
Update: As of the 4th May 2020 four survivors of Torres have filed police reports (separate to the 2007 Pinellas County police report and the 2009 Centennial police report) and the FBI have opened an investigation.

2020.04.04 00:51 89Ladybug New Yorker March 30, 2020 book review: How Joseph Smith and the Early Mormons Challenged American Democracy

In Nauvoo, Illinois, Smith established a theocracy, ran for President, and tested the limits of religious freedom.
It was an unlikely candidacy: a thirty-eight-year-old mayor from the heartland who pitched himself as the solution to partisan gridlock, played up his military experience, talked often about his faith, and promised to end the country’s moral decline. He was fond of quoting the Founding Fathers, had an army of grassroots supporters, and came from a swing state. But the year was 1844, the state was Illinois, the parties were the Whigs and the Democrats, and the candidate was Joseph Smith, the founder of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Whether or not the country would have been with Joe, we’ll never know: on June 27th, a few months after announcing his candidacy, the first Mormon to run for President became the first Presidential candidate to be assassinated. Smith’s death marked the end of a decisive period in Mormon history, one that is less familiar to most outsiders than the Church’s founding, in New York State, or its eventual move to Utah, where, against considerable odds, its members came to flourish. But the chaotic months of Smith’s Presidential campaign and his effort to establish a theocracy in Illinois are the subject of the historian Benjamin E. Park’s new book, "Kingdom of Nauvoo: The Rise and Fall of a Religious Empire on the American Frontier"
Park’s book is a compelling history, built from contemporaneous accounts and from the previously unreleased minutes of the Council of Fifty, a governing body of sorts that Smith convened in Nauvoo, Illinois, when he was feeling besieged by his enemies and anticipating the Second Coming of Christ. Its minutes help clarify Smith’s sometimes contradictory political theology, and Park’s explication of them elevates “Kingdom of Nauvoo” from pure religious history to the realm of political theory. Park, an ambidextrous thinker, is equally sensitive to the danger the state can pose to religious minorities and to the danger that a religious institution can pose to the secular state. In his account, the early Mormons were a rowdy band of neo-Puritans who mounted a fundamental challenge to the democratic experiment. The tensions that they experienced—between the right to religious freedom and the limits of religious tolerance—still persist today.
Smith was twenty-one and a few years into a floundering career as a treasure hunter when, per his own account, he unearthed a set of golden plates buried in upstate New York. This was in 1827, during the Second Great Awakening, when charismatic preachers were stoking religious fires around the country. Smith’s parents had been drawn into this religious passion—especially his father, who dabbled in divination until his dreams were filled with prophecies. Smith’s own visions were of an angel named Moroni, who appeared to him several times before finally instructing him to retrieve the plates buried in Hill Cumorah. By then, Smith had married a woman named Emma Hale, who helped transcribe the words that Smith claimed to translate from the plates—engravings in a language that he called “reformed Egyptian.”
Smith finished the transcription by 1830 and found a printer who agreed to run off five thousand copies. The result, the Book of Mormon, begins as the record of a Jewish family in Jerusalem, who, around 600 B.C., build a boat and sail to the Americas—where, six centuries later, the risen Christ preaches to their descendants. In an age when people were hungry for evidence of God’s continued involvement in the world, and in a country anxious to assert itself on the global stage, Smith’s scriptures offered appealing assurances: not only was the United States a holy land where Jesus himself had walked but God was still speaking to the men and women who lived there. Smith attracted a circle of followers, mostly men of modest means—farmers, clerks, small-time pastors, and schoolteachers—from New York and Pennsylvania at first, then from farther afield.
But self-declared prophets seldom sit well with the political establishment, and, almost immediately, Smith and his adherents got into trouble with the law. Some of their antagonists were motivated by personal animus toward Smith dating to his pre-Prophet, huckstering, treasure-hunting days; others were dismayed by the unconventional nature of Mormonism, with its new scriptures, its occasional glossolalia, and its insistence that other churches had fallen away from Christ’s true gospel. It wasn’t long before Smith was arrested for being a “disorderly person,” one in a series of charges by various authorities attempting to stymie his religious movement: banking fraud, illegal banking, fornication, threatening a public official, conspiring to assassinate a public official, incitement of a riot, perjury, polygamy, and treason against two states.
As grave as some of those charges were, they were the least of the problems faced by members of the new faith. Anti-Mormon mobs harassed known believers and attacked their houses; they even tarred and feathered Smith one night in 1832. Hostilities like these gradually pushed the Mormons farther and farther toward the frontier: they established their first new Jerusalem in Kirtland, Ohio; then a newer new Jerusalem in Independence, Missouri; and their newest new Jerusalem in Far West, Missouri. In each place, local opposition increased in tandem with the growth of the Mormon population. It worsened when, at Smith’s command, Mormons voted as a bloc, upsetting the political order. In 1838, having already been evicted from one Missouri county, they went to vote in the county seat of another, where a mob attempted to stop them. There were allegations of violence in what came to be known as the Gallatin County Election Day Battle, and subsequent vigilantism left more than twenty people dead. During this period, the Missouri governor, Lilburn Boggs, declared in an executive order that “the Mormons must be treated as enemies, and must be exterminated or driven from the state if necessary for the public peace.” Three days later, seventeen Mormons were murdered by soldiers near Shoal Creek, in Caldwell County.
The next day, Smith was arrested and imprisoned for four months, during which time thousands of Mormon refugees moved to Illinois, where they had been promised protection by the state legislature, whose members included a young Abraham Lincoln. Smith escaped from jail before standing trial—possibly with the help of sympathetic guards—and he and other Mormon leaders then went to Washington, D.C., to plead their case before the federal government. Aggrieved but also entitled, they carried four hundred and eighty-one individual petitions for reparations from harm suffered in state-sanctioned violence, demanding compensation for everything from lost livestock to lost husbands. The largest of the claims came from Smith himself, who demanded a hundred thousand dollars for loss of property and what he described as false imprisonment.
Those petitions represented a peculiar understanding of American federalism: predictably, the Mormons got nowhere with their argument that the national government should compensate them for the actions of a particular state. “What can I do?” President Martin Van Buren asked incredulously, before giving the same answer that Congress offered when presented with the petitions: “I can do nothing for you.” It was the first of many contradictory lessons the Mormons would learn about how the federal government adjudicates between the will of the majority and the rights of a minority. Disillusioned and angered, Smith and the others headed back to Illinois, where the Mormons had already chosen a place to resettle. The town was called Commerce, so they bought it. Smith changed the name to Nauvoo, which he believed to be the Hebrew word for “beautiful city.”
The city of Nauvoo took shape in an age when Ralph Waldo Emerson claimed that every intellectual had “a draft of a new community in his waistcoat pocket.” But Smith’s plans went far beyond the scribbling stage: within a dozen years of its founding, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints had more than twenty thousand members, and Nauvoo quickly grew to be more populous than Chicago. But, unlike the Windy City, Nauvoo, operating under a permissive charter from the state of Illinois, developed a distinctly theocratic character: its independent judiciary could deny the validity of arrest warrants issued by neighboring authorities in order to shield Church members from prosecution, and its standing militia of several hundred armed men, known as the Nauvoo Legion, was empowered to protect citizens from any threat. Smith was made a Lieutenant General, a title previously held in the United States only by George Washington, and organized parades to show off the legion’s strength. (This was the military experience he would boast about during his Presidential campaign; he later added to his résumé a term as Nauvoo’s mayor.)
The city’s grandest feature was its enormous tabernacle. Smith wanted the temple of Nauvoo to rival the one built by Solomon; when it was finished, thanks to the tithe in time and muscle required of every resident, it was twice as tall as the White House. Smith had continued to receive revelations about how the faithful were meant to serve God, so this new sanctuary housed new religious rituals. One of them called for posthumous baptism, through which Mormons could baptize a living person as a proxy for someone already deceased. Another—which would divide the Church, attract the permanent suspicion of the state, and forever taint the public perception of the faith—called for plural marriage.
The origins of this rite are not well known. As Park observes in “Kingdom of Nauvoo,” it is striking that a faith so devoted to record-keeping did not document the doctrine of polygamy. “As committed as he was to the ritual’s significance,” Park writes, of Smith, “he was similarly committed to its secrecy, knowing that its exposure would lead to Nauvoo’s downfall.” Smith publicly denied knowledge of polygamous marriages, and the few records of those unions which do exist refer to them as “sealings”—or, even more cryptically, simply connect the names of the united with “was,” an abbreviation for “wed and sealed.” One of the only documents Smith ever recorded which attests to the practice is a blessing he wrote for the family of one of his teen-age wives, assuring her and her relatives of their salvation. Another of Smith’s plural wives—whose marriage to Smith was followed, within a few weeks, by that of her sister—later explained that these marriages were “too sacred to be talked about.” Such furtiveness makes it difficult to track the development of the doctrine, much less Smith’s theological justification for it. Some historians, including Park, believe that he took his first plural wife in April, 1841, though whenever it happened, he did not tell Emma, and it was some time before she learned the truth. If he’d been elected President, the nation’s cumulative total of First Ladies would instantly have tripled: by then, he had taken more than thirty wives, the youngest of whom was thought to be fourteen, and the oldest of whom was fifty-six.
Originally, only Smith had multiple wives. But he gradually revealed the practice to other Mormon leaders, inviting them, selectively, to witness his plural marriages, then encouraging them to pursue their own. Not everyone approved: Smith’s brother Hyrum initially led the opposition, condemning polygamy and calling for a moral revival in Nauvoo. Hyrum was a widower, and his hostility to the practice weakened after he learned of its supposed posthumous benefits, through which he could be united in the afterlife with both his late wife and any future ones. Other Mormons remained unenthusiastic. Emma tried to marshal resistance among women through the Church’s all-female Relief Society; in response, Smith tried to stifle the organization. Emma then threatened him with divorce, at which point he promised to take no additional wives and signed his property over to her and their children, in order to secure their financial well-being in case of rival claims.
It would be years before any Mormon leader formally acknowledged the practice of polygamy. Instead, somewhat shockingly, the Nauvoo city council passed a law punishing adultery with six months in jail and a fine of up to a thousand dollars. (Because the city’s municipal leadership overlapped entirely with its spiritual leadership, Smith could choose to protect colleagues from prosecution under this new law.) Even more audaciously, Smith cursed “all Adulterers & fornicators” in a speech, then excommunicated two Church leaders for attempting to expose his secret marriages. The first, John C. Bennett, had been the mayor of Nauvoo; when his own polygamy became public, he accused Smith of having sanctioned it. The second, William Law, had denounced plural marriage after Smith propositioned his wife. After being banished from the faith, Law started a breakaway movement called the True Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
Such two-faced dealing was characteristic of Smith’s leadership during the Nauvoo years, both within and beyond the bounds of the Mormon Church. Not only was he struggling to maintain control of his followers—suppressing dissent over plural marriage and quashing concerns about his own moral purity—he was also trying to expand his secular power. Since arriving in Illinois, Smith had, ahead of every election, courted the favor of the two major political parties, the Whigs and the Democrats, dangling the Mormon vote in exchange for political favors and personal protection. In a state where a few hundred votes could determine the outcome of an election, particularly at the county and congressional levels, the thousands of active and enfranchised Mormons became a sought-after constituency. After a few election cycles, though, this courtship soured, partly because Smith did not reliably follow through on his promised endorsements; in one congressional race, he supported the Whig candidate while instructing other Church leaders to support the Democratic opponent, dividing the promised bloc vote. Moreover, he was becoming politically toxic. When Boggs, the Missouri governor, was shot, in 1842, rumors circulated that Smith had placed a bounty on his head. Missouri forced Illinois into an extradition arrangement for the Mormon leader, but the municipal courts in Nauvoo thwarted it, in a scandalous act of disregard for the rule of law.
Like the Quakers in the Massachusetts Bay Colony before them, and the Rajneeshees in Oregon after them, the Mormons in Illinois came to be seen as a danger to democracy: not a mini-America, where the saints could take refuge, but an anti-America, where social deviance threatened the moral order, and religious authorities sought too much power. In the case of the Mormons, that perception was not entirely inaccurate. This became clear in 2016, when the sealed minutes of the Council of Fifty were finally made public. Smith first convened the secret organization in the spring of 1844, and it immediately began drafting an alternative to the United States Constitution, rejecting democracy as a failed political project and outlining a theocratic kingdom to replace it.
Park’s access to these minutes is part of what makes “Kingdom of Nauvoo” so illuminating. The documents offer new insights into Smith’s decision to run for President, a campaign that exasperated authorities in Illinois and in Missouri and drew criticism of the Mormons from around the country. It was the Council of Fifty that appointed Smith “Prophet, Priest & King,” helping him shape a political platform while also making plans for what would happen if he lost the election and the Mormons needed to leave Nauvoo. The Council sent missionaries south and west, to see about resettlement, and Smith, in his Presidential platform, called for the annexation of Texas from Mexico, suggesting that the sale of the nation’s public lands could be used to buy the freedom of enslaved persons around the country, thereby ending slavery and promoting Manifest Destiny at the same time. (That suggests a stronger commitment to racial equality than existed. In the Book of Mormon, dark skin is depicted as a curse from God; after Smith’s death, the Church began withholding the priesthood from black members, a policy that lasted for much of the twentieth century.)
Smith had queried the five other Presidential candidates before deciding to run. Only three responded, and none expressed a willingness to protect the Mormons if elected. Smith’s ensuing campaign was not so much a vanity project as an attempt to advocate for a more assertive federal government and a stronger executive branch, making the case that the Union should intervene against the states whenever the rights of minorities were threatened. “Persecution has rolled upon our heads from time to time, from portions of the United States, like peals of thunder, because of our religion,” Smith lamented, after announcing his candidacy. “And no portion of the Government as yet has stepped forward for our relief. And in view of these things, I feel it to be my right and privilege to obtain what influence and power I can, lawfully, in the United States, for the protection of injured innocence.”
Nearly three hundred Mormon missionaries were sent into all twenty-six states to evangelize for Smith’s candidacy. Political conventions were just becoming popular, and his newly created Reform Party planned to hold them in every state—and to hold a national one in Baltimore later in the summer. But, not long before it was to take place, Smith was imprisoned in Illinois. The arrest stemmed not from forces outside Nauvoo but from forces within it: William Law, the excommunicated leader who founded a rival church, had, with a group of other dissenters, begun publishing a newspaper, which accused Smith of polygamy and detailed the ways in which he was supposedly dangerous to American democracy.
Smith and his Council of Fifty ordered the Nauvoo Legion to destroy the press that printed Law’s Nauvoo Expositor. Smith then declared martial law. The state of Illinois responded by threatening military retaliation against Nauvoo, and by adding a new charge to all the outstanding ones against Smith: attempting to incite a riot. Smith surrendered himself at Carthage, the county seat. Two days later, a mob of more than two hundred men stormed the jail where the Prophet was being held and shot him as he tried to escape by jumping from a second-story window. He died not long after hitting the ground, either from the fall or from the bullets the mob fired at him once he landed.
Only five of the vigilantes were tried for Smith’s murder, and none were convicted. Smith’s First Counselor and Vice-Presidential running mate, Sidney Rigdon, tried to take control of the Mormon Church; then Brigham Young, a former carpenter who’d been ordained to an advisory council called the Quorum of the Twelve, made the more politic suggestion that the whole Quorum should oversee the Church, with Young as its president; the congregation agreed. (The Council eventually excommunicated Rigdon, who later established a competing church, which condemned polygamy, in Pittsburgh.) Young was a forceful figure—“a man of much courage and superb equipment,” per the weathered stone that marks his birthplace, in Whitingham, Vermont. Ignoring the criticisms of the surrounding secular authorities, he began to “marry for eternity” more than a dozen women, seven of whom had also been “M.E.” to Smith, while also organizing the Mormon vote for county elections. The state retaliated by revoking Nauvoo’s charter, and the antagonism between the theocratic city and its surrounding democratic neighbors intensified until, finally, the Mormons were forced out of Nauvoo.
There was no reason to believe, at that point, that the Mormon Church would survive. Some supporters had proposed giving the religion its own sovereign reservation, like those that had recently been designated for Native Americans; opponents of the faith advocated, outright, for the extermination of its adherents. Park suggests that the Mormons’ migration to Utah was a preview of the sorts of secessionist tendencies that would play out two decades later, when Southern states left the Union, though the Mormons departed the country entirely—or tried to. When the faithful settled in the Salt Lake Valley, more than twelve hundred miles from Nauvoo, they were pleased to find themselves outside American territory, then displeased to discover, after the Mexican-American War, that their foreign soil was suddenly domestic. In yet another example of their continually complicated relationship to the United States, the Mormons almost immediately petitioned for statehood, trying to get federal recognition for the State of Deseret.
Nearly half a century later, Utah finally became a state, and the Mormons rejoined the Union—but not before they had mounted an armed resistance against the National Guard, in response to the American military entering the territory, in 1857. Five previous applications for statehood had been denied, on the ground that the Mormon Church’s political theology clashed with the country’s democratic values: the same conflict that had forced the Mormons out of Nauvoo was now playing out, over and over again, in their new home. Unlike the separatist Shakers and Mennonites, the Mormons wanted to participate in the democratic process, and they tried to consolidate enough political power to bend the laws of the majority to protect their minority beliefs. But polygamy, for the U.S. Congress, was a non-starter; eventually, judicial debates over its legality went all the way to the Supreme Court. In Reynolds v. U.S. (1879), the Justices ruled that the free-exercise clause did not protect plural marriage, and that a federal law banning polygamy was constitutional. Congress then passed more laws punishing the Church, including one that called for the seizure of its property. Finally, Mormon leaders, who had previously called for open defiance of federal laws, declared an end to plural marriage. Six years after this public capitulation, in 1896, Utah was recognized as the forty-fifth state.
Such compromises are the stuff that democracy is made of—and, it seems, the stuff that successful religions are made of, too. Many denominations came and went during the proliferation of faith and fanaticism that characterized the Second Great Awakening. What kept Mormonism from joining their ranks was its willingness to change its political theology. Park suggests that part of what the Mormons learned at Nauvoo was the limits of theocracy. Adapting their beliefs and practices in Utah strengthened their standing with the federal government; by balancing religious liberty with democratic authority, they survived persecution and persisted, eventually coming to play a significant role in the political life of the nation.
Although a Mormon was elected to state office in Illinois in 1838, it wasn’t until 1896 that one was elected to the federal legislature. That achievement did not end the suspicion on both sides of the church-state divide: when a member of the Quorum of the Twelve, Reed Smoot, won a United States Senate seat, in 1903, he endured several years of congressional inquiries into whether his duties as a Mormon apostle would keep him from exercising secular authority. Such was the uneasy evolution of the relationship between the faithful and their government: enmity and mistrust slowly gave way, on both sides, to accommodation and alliance. So it was that earlier this year, on the floor of the Senate, another onetime Mormon Presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, could declare that he had sworn “an oath before God to exercise impartial justice,” and become the first politician in American history to vote to impeach a member of his own party. In explaining why he would convict President Donald Trump on the charge of abuse of power, Romney said, “I am profoundly religious. My faith is at the heart of who I am.”
It was a remarkable gesture, the sort of profile in courage that so many people had been waiting for during the impeachment trial. It was also a vote to constrain the power of the executive branch, which Joseph Smith had wanted to strengthen, and to uphold traditional democratic principles, which Smith and his early followers had sought to undermine. And it was a vote at odds with some of Romney’s co-religionists in Congress: of the three other Mormons in the Senate, one, Tom Udall, a Democrat, joined Romney in voting for impeachment, while the other two, Mike Crapo and Mike Lee, both Republicans, voted to protect the President. That schism might have dismayed Smith: this time, there was no Mormon bloc. But, nearly two hundred years after the founding of Nauvoo, there was, within his faith, something that Smith had demanded from his country, even if he had not always permitted it in his church: room for dissent. ♦

I would like to give a shoutout to u/thivnav for telling me about Flushing Town Hall. Also to u/mandonuts, for Public Theater (which should be here next week).
As a personal recommendation, I would suggest going to see Sorry to Bother You, which I thought was fantastic.
Again, you can search the events here. There are some more search filters. Notably, you can choose to omit public-run events (my GAD so many nypl events) and can filter for family-oriented events. Next week, I hope to have some keyword filters, and have a search that doesn't default to a map (think how Yelp lists restaurants when you search).
Cheers, until next week.

Budapest Festival Orchestra Cocoa Concert, 2/23

Accessibility at Lincoln Center and the Budapest Festival Orchestra bring Cocoa Concerts, a family concert Iván Fischer and the Budapest Festival Orchestra has specially designed to include young people within the autism spectrum and their family members. This one-hour concert consists of brief classical-music movements, performed by members of the world-renowned orchestra, in an inclusive and supported environment. While the visual tools, music and communication techniques are created with children with autism in mind, all young people with disabilities are welcomed.
The Budapest Festival Orchestra puts its heart and soul into organizing programs accessible to everyone, seeking to bring children with autism and development disabilities into the magical world of music. Conductor Iván Fischer and the BFO have been performing their Cocoa Concerts for years, and it is an important mission for BFO as these events enable children to enjoy enriching activities and to experience the joy and power of music.
The orchestra’s musicians will perform in various chamber-music setups and will show, through the deft selection of music, the exciting things instruments can do and how much fun it is to play music together. Before introducing the musicians, Iván Fischer will explain the upcoming piece and what details are worth paying attention to.
Before the concert begins, all audience members will receive a handout detailing the instruments used and the program, as well as colorful stickers to mark the finished pieces after every ovation, helping everyone remain engaged during the concert.
Following the concert, families are invited to join the musicians for hot cocoa.
Recommended for children aged 5 and up and their families. This program is specifically designed for children with autism, however, all are welcomed.
This performance is free, but space is limited.

Behind the Sun, Above the Moon Anthology Launch, 2/23

Come celebrate the book launch for the anthology Behind the Sun Above the Moon, a short story collection by nonbinary authors featuring SFF stories with a brief reading hosted by contributing authors Emmett Nahil and Sara Codair. Behind the Sun, Above the Moon centers trans and non-binary Own Voices writers, which enables them to imagine alternative futures and create fabulist worlds for themselves. Emmett Nahil (he/him) is a queer writer, artist, and game producer working on the indie game Love Shore (2021). He’s interested in intersectional activism, diverse representation for other queer Middle Easterners, and bringing more nuanced work to all kinds of weird literature. He has been known to favor horror, sci-fi, urban/modern fantasy, and trans-inclusive speculative fiction. Follow him on twitter, @_emmays. Sara Codair is the author over fifty short stories, which are packed with action, adventure, magic, and the bizarre. They partially owe their success to their faithful feline writing partner, Goose the Meowditor-In-Chief, who likes to “edit” their work by deleting entire pages. Sara’s debut novel, Power Surge, was published by NineStar Press on Oct. 1, 2018 and the sequel will be out sometime in 2020. Find Sara online at http://saracodair.com or @shatteredsmooth.

Reddick received a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from Ohio State University and a Master of Architecture from Yale University.

I would like to give a shoutout to u/thivnav for telling me about Flushing Town Hall. Also to u/mandonuts, for Public Theater (which should be here next week).
As a personal recommendation, I would suggest going to see Sorry to Bother You, which I thought was fantastic.
Again, you can search the events here. There are some more search filters. Notably, you can choose to omit public-run events (my GAD so many nypl events) and can filter for family-oriented events. Next week, I hope to have some keyword filters, and have a search that doesn't default to a map (think how Yelp lists restaurants when you search).
Cheers, until next week.

· Who is Jeffrey Dahmer A. Jeffrey Dahmer is one of the most famous serial killers and sex fiends in American history; Dahmer killed 17 men, engaged in necrophilia and cannibalism
· B. Dahmer was criminally active from the summer of 1978 up until his capture in 1991.
· C. Part of what makes Dahmer so fascinating is the nature of his crimes. Dahmer went further, faster than most people would ever dream going. His crimes and perversions are the stuff of nightmares, but what really fascinates me is who he was before his crimes.
· Many people identify with being a confused loner, trying to fit in. Most of us make it; others don't. Dahmer is a fascinating case study surrounding the nature of evil and raises alot of really neat questions about whether one is "born to kill".
· Slide
· Childhood
o Born to Lionel and Joyce Dahmer on May 21, 1960. i. Theres alot of debate over whether Jeff was drowned in attention or was deprived of it; Brian Masters' book "The Shrine of Jeffrey Dahmer" postulates that Joyce loathed breastfeeding and refused to do it.
· Lionel goes so far as to blame Joyce's difficult pregnancy as being a contributing factor towards Dahmer's behavior. Most of this seems like a crock of crap; many kids are raised on formula, and loads of women have difficult pregnancies.
· ii. More on Lionel's claims: "There could be possibly some physiological, some biochemical basis to this because my ex-wife had been taking about 26 tablets of different medications about one month after becoming pregnant," Lionel Dahmer said in an interview aired Wednesday on the syndicated television program "Inside Edition."
o They were described as sedating and tranquilizing drugs which have the scientific names of meprobamate, mephobarbital, phenobarbitol and secobarbital and the female sex hormone progestin. The report said they now are considered potential risks to a developing fetus.
· slide
o Who are the Parents
§ Lionel Herbert Dahmer
o Quiet and studious man--had a degree in chemistry and that was his primary career.
o Lionel was "married to his work for the most part. trying to advance career and get doctorate.
§ Annette "Joyce" Dahmer
o highly emotional woman; thought to be a bit of a hypochondriac.- most of what we know about Joyce dahmer is derived from lionel's descriptions of her which could be pretty inaccurate for all we know.
· One story i particular really highlights her flightiness; they had an argument one night, and a PREGNANT joyce dahmer walked out of the house with no boots on and stormed off for 4 blocks to the park.
· This was in the middle of the winter, and "Shrine" talks about the wind that winter blowing in from lake michigan, icy cold and snow banks piled on the ground. Lionel had to come "prove his love" and fetch her. Joyce Dahmer has refused interviews for the most part.
§ Other observations: both are pretty self centered in their own respect.
· Her father was an alcoholic and since its widely believed that those genes are hereditary, one might posit that dahmer was genetically predisposed. joyce was ignored by drunkard dad a bunch and so, shrine puts forward, she demanded respect and attention from everyone else.
· shrine almost fetishisticly focuses on joyce. lionel did have a temper, but his sin was for the most part his slavish devotion to work. Joyce was pregnant within days of their marriage.
o Baby Dahmer- Stories and facts from infancy
§ Birth
o Dahmer was born at the evangelical deaconess hospital in milwaukee- 4:34 PM on 21 may 1960. 6 lbs 15 ounces. it was a Saturday; books says good looking baby, cause handsome parents.
· parents went through most of the new parent stuff; baby book etc. jeff had casts on his legs till 4 months and had to wear lifts in his shoes till 6 to correct his legs. Took a shining to animals as most kids do.
· Joyce again didnt do breast feeding; taped breasts. Find book quote
· Slide
· Jeff was described as awkward and ill at ease with other kids in elementary school.
· By age 3 doctors looking at him mentioned he had a hernia that may need operating on; this would be a pivitol event in dahmer's life. Few weeks after Christmas he was taken to the hospital; double hernia surgery was needed- alot for a 4 year old to take in.
· Jeff remembers watching Bewitched on tv with a bunch of other kids before the operation; this would be in 19 march 1964.
· Effect of surgery on Dahmer
· Surgery took place on 19th of March 1964; the first thing Dahmer knew was intense pain in his groin region.
· The young boy thought his privates had been cut off; the pain lasted about a week. The surgery would not have normally merited much attention at all, but dahmer's crimes themselves were so specific in nature that it makes one wonder.
· The surgery was in a sensitive area, and involved lots of people digging around inside of him. Shrine makes a decent point here; this would be the most intimate event of his life for a long time.
· slide
· Also tricked a black neighborhood boy into sticking his hand into a hornet's nest thinking there might be ladybugs inside. A lot of dahmer's victims were black. Is that telling of something?
· The most commonly repeated story is the fiddlesticks story- jeff finds some bones under his crawlspace while cleaning it with his dad.
· He played with them alot, loving the sound they made when they hit the ground. When he would hold his pets, he mentioned he could feel their fiddlesticks...and wondered if they looked the same.
§ 1966 and Jeff Growing up
o jeff is now 6 jeff's mom is hitting up pills hard, throwing back equanil and seconal to try to give herself peace.
· She'd often double down on dosage if it wasnt mellowing her out soon enough. Shrine alludes to a possible suicide attempt, but i couldnt find any more info from other sources.
· Shrine also carries alot of water for Lionel sayin he's overworked cause he's busy studying for his doctorote, working, and having to shop too (god forbid). apparently lionel had to handle shopping cause joyce couldn't drive.
· Lionel would hit joyce- shrine continues the virtual handjob to lionel stating that he did it to calm her nervousness, never out of malevolence.
· either way jeff's teachers reported they felt jeff was neglected. Joyce found church and tried to use it to battle her depression. she also told lionel she wanted a second child. that seems like a way to get ouf depression and into madness. Around this time, Lionel got his doctorate and got a gig in ohio meaning the family had to move.
· Jeff had to sell his cat as a result-got a dog at the new house to compensate. By this time, Jeff was becoming more inward and withdrawn. read the passage from shrine page 26. Temporarily holding this erosion of his personailty was the prospect of having a baby brother to play with.
· slide
o Childhood and Teenage Years
§ Doylestown
o Lionel's new gig brought the family to doylestown ohio.
· Jeff's brother david was born on december 18th 1966. Joyce was gloomy with depression and the mood in the house was dark.
· Joyce bitched about how much noise the neighbors made; they had to move- despite it being a rural area with neighbors far off.
· They rented a house in Barberton Ohio a few months after moving to doylestown. Dahmer didnt really do well in town and the introvert didnt really like making new friends in a new town.
· The kids in town played a choking game with dahmer; an incident of note considering that dahmer killed almost all of his victims via choking. Jeff was invited to stangle one boy who promised not to tell the teacher; of course the kid and ratted him out to the teacher.
· The big takeaway is that dahmer felt betrayed; shrine postulates that this betrayal was some of the first blushes of a schizoid personality.
· page 28 for description of schizoid. another betrayed trust was dahmer giving his teacher some tadpoles in jar he found. she kept them in class for a day or two; after that the disappeared. dahmer then, incidentally, was playing at a kids house and saw that the teacher had give nthe tadpoles to the kid.
· dahmer, felt betrayed and hurt and killed the tadpoles by pouring motor oil in the jar. -if she doesnt want them, noone can have them.
· slide
§ Bath
o When taking the family for a drive one day, was driving through Bath Ohio; they saw a home for sale- 4480 west bath road; they would buy the home and it would be their family home for 10 years until the marriage fell apart and dahmer began his trip down bathshit road.
· the house was a big step up- lionel built a chicken coop, jeff had woods and a lake to explore- it was at this time he began to explore dead bodies he'd find- to a very minor extent- frogs and small animals.
· dahmer was turning into a bit of a layabout- never seemed to take interest in anything besides personal secretive pursuits. mix of his father's in-wardness and his mother's self centerdness
· Jeff one night when eating chicken, asked his dad what would happen if he was to bleach chicken bones- his dad was super proud of this and saw it as hope that his kid would turn into a scientist. this was when jeff was 10. a
§ 1970
o Joyce's pill popping reached a head- she was tossing back 8 equanil a day on top of laxatives and sleeping pills. she was running from something; jeff recalls he could feel the uncertainty of his familial situation-
· page 31 for direct marriage quote.
· Joyce spent most of her time in bed, and other normally friendly family moments were laced with tension of whether joyce would be able to handle it.
· She still kept popping pills though. Jeff blamed himself but also didnt have anyone he felt he could take to, for fear of freaking his mother out.
· He would go out into the woods and beat trees to work out his frustration. early alienation is a common symptom of people who become compulsive murders.
· page 32.
· description of child aberration. shrine even goes so far as to say he was bad from infancy- postulating that troublesome and demanding babies are exercising basic human emotion. "good babies" are actually dead inside, according to the book.
· slide
§ Teenage Years
o Lionel was noticing dahmer's withdrawn nature even more and tried to correct it- with tennis. he taught him the game, hoping it would "awaken his energy"- most people saw it for what it was- jeff being pressured into the game.
· they tried boy scouts, even when they were killing some lambs they had raised, jeff was mostly emotionless.
· While dad was trying to pull him out of the dead zone, mom completely unplugged. jeff was never really close to mom, and she stayed in bed almost all day every day during this time.
· when joyce was awake she seemed desperate and petty, letting small things oppress her- jeff in turn was inward and secretive. jeff seemed unfased by puberty- shrine speculates that because his emotions were so muted, his reponses to thsoe changes were muted in turn.
· He had a bit of homosexual exploration with a childhood friend, eric. eric initiated and they would hike and fish, while later meeting in a tree house to kiss, touch, and caress. They did this around 3-4 times and then broke it off due to fear of getting found out.
o Dahmer had also been drinking since around age 14. he was super apathetic but also would act out as class clown. page 35 some classic "pranks"-seems alot like a stupid youtuber. dahmer tried to make a friend or two, but some had their parents say he wasnt allowed to hang out with dahmer, while other friendships never developed any depth.
· he was a smart kid, but his grades sucked- partly from goofing off, apathy, and hitting the booze. his parents tried to get a tutor but it didnt really work out well.
· Slide
· Dahmer would spend most of his free time patrolling the woods for animal skeletons- the same eric kid who had the homosexual liason found his little hut and noticed the many collected skeletal samples.
· there was a graveyard for animals next to the hut. he kept a pig he dissected in school. nothing was perceived to be suspicious about this- his dad thought he would be a decent biologist perhaps. jeff developed even more, hunting for road kill he would haul off and cut open.
· dahmer didnt follow the common killer being cruel to animals trope; he was a product man and was interested in the corpse alone. sadists want to exert control over others and want the interplay between themselves and the one they inflict pain on; dahmer wasnt into that and just wanted the body- the machine of life itself.
· dog bone story pg 37
· As dahmer's teen years progress he's getting more and more drunk; one of his main buddies was Jeff Six who was a pot dealer in the student body. Jeff Six was a piece of shit, even bothering dahmer; when driving together, Six would intentionally cruise around for dogs to try to hit with his car.
· Shrine states that Dahmer recalls Six hitting 4 dogs in a day. They hit a puppy one time and the gaze it gave dahmer was something he remembered even in prison all those years later.
· Circle back to eyes open victim. Dahmer was largely asexual in high school and his parents had completely cooled sexually with lionel sleeping on the couch.
· Dahmer at this point was masterbting three times a day or more and was beginning to look at homoerotic imagry, especially at male torsos. Discuss the first developmental phase of sexuality.
· Alongside this was the mostly seperate desire to explore the body; they were seperate for now, but the sexual progression would soon fuse to this part of dahmer's nature.
· slide
· Dahmer began to obsess over a jogger that would run by his house- dahmer wanted to touch his body, but couldnt figure out how to make that happen. Dahmer planned to capture him, hiding in the bushes one day with a baseball bat. Despite the jogger having a fairly routine schedule, the day dahmer waited, the jogger never showed.
· How had dahmer progressed to potential violence so quickly? Dahmer claims not to know, but the likely culprit was unchecked sexual fantasy. Fantasy quote page 42.
· Masterbation was both a safety valve to vent sexual pressure, but it also solidifies the objects of desire and when the flight of fantasy meets the gravity of reality, it can be difficult to reconcile. Dahmer made the mistake of beginning to allow fantasy to spill over into reality.
· 1978
· Christmas time, dahmer's parents begin divorce filings. during the previous year they had tried to get counseling but that failed.
· when joyce went out of town for her dad's funeral she shacked up with another guy.
· they originally decided to split amicably but lionel then sends her a registered letter from his lawyer saying she has to pack up in a week. After yelling and fighting with one another, dahmer decides to do the alpha move and move out.
· he went and stayed at the ohio motel at 2248 north cleveland massillon road.
· Meanwhile the courts declared joyce needs to undergo a psych eval. lionel sent a full book of information about his wife he had been collecting on her mental health, and her substance abuse issues. joyce in turn told her therapist all about her struggles even describing lionel as "insatiable".
· quote about her health page 44. the parents discussed frequently who would have custody over david, but jeff was mostly forgotten about.
· slide
· shrine calls dahmer at this point, "dangerously disconnected"- completley overlooked in the divorce struggle. this would lead to alot of trouble.
· prom date story? page 46- also went to DC with his class and ended up calling the then vice president- he was able to make a face to face introduction with his class mates and the VP
· he and his few friends who by some accounts used him for laughs more than anything, managed to get dahmer into almost every group yearbook photo as a prank.
· the parents get a divorce, and joyce effectively gets the house- as part of the agreement, joyce is awarded custody of minor david, but told to stay within the court's jurisdiction.
· slide
· stephen hicks
· dahmer's fantasies continued to evolve to the point where he began to understand what really turned him on- the male torso and the concept of possessing someone. the fantasy of the hitchhiker
· the thoughts even got to the point where he thought he would have to kill someone to achieve the idea of possessing someone. dahmer kept these urges at bay through masturbating, unknowingly solidifying them in his psyche. page 51. arrows from the blue quote.
· one day in june, dahmer asked his dad if he could borrow his car- i think lionel was still living at the hotel. dahmer was to return the car the next day. the pretense was to go the movies. cruising around 5 along the highway, dahmer saw something that caught his eye- a young man hitchhiking along the road side.
· The young man was Steve Hicks, and he was the ideal victim for dahmer- young, handsome, and shirtless. it sounds funny, but given dahmer's obesession with torsos, this was borderline pornagraphic for him.
· The stretch of road they were on wasn't commonly used, and dahmer realized he had stumbled onto a perfect scenario. A car, a willing and handsome passenger, and an empty house.
· Dahmer was nervous but turned around and made the approach. Dahmer introduced himself, and Steven in turn introduced himself. Steven was from Illinois and dahmer was able to convince him to head back to his place with an offer of beer and some weed.
· When they arrived, they headed to Jeff's room; steve passed on the weed, but took jeff up on his offer for some beers. jeff began to frantically try and figure out how to make a pass at steve.
· meanwhile steve revealed he was very much straight- he had in fact just finished celebrating his 19th birthday with his girlfriend.
· Dahmer began to get more and more upset each time the girlfriend was issued- the pressure was building and each word from steve in that regard was like turning the key of a jack in the box.
· dahmer began to realize this conversation, and in turn his whole life wasn't going anywhere- dark frustration started to build.
· slide
· after a few hours hicks metioned it was probably time for him to be heading out. this was the last chance- nervousness and anger drove dahmer's next steps. he wasn't going to let someone else leave him. he excused himself to the cellar for a moment- grabbed an 8 inch barbell- took the weights off, and went back upstairs.
· steve was sitting with his back to the cellar door- Dahmer seized his chance and swung at his head with the barbell. The impact angered Hicks who began to fight with Dahmer; a short bru haha ensued but Dahmer hit hicks over the head a second time and knocked him out.
· Dahmer was likely full of nervous energy and excitement, and was beyond reasoning or rationale. He hesitated then took the barbell and strangled Hick's body with it.
· Dahmer had killed for the first time; and once his nerves died down and he caught his breath, he claimed his prize.
· Stripping Hick's of his shirt he began to revel in the beauty of Hick's body. Again Dahmer was a product killer; after all this Dahmer had his object of desire. He ran his hands all over the body, especially his chest- kissing and caressing it. He lay down next to the body for a while. My guess is definitly big spoon.
· Finally, Dahmer stood up and masterbated on to the body. This act of masterbation I feel has incredible significance- it begins to tie violence into sexuality and to further reinforce his desires to obtain product at any cost. Like anyone who has cum will tell you, Dahmer was hit with post nut clarity- he had killed somebody.
· His desires had escalated then become real. Dahmer was consumed with fear and once night fell, he dragged the body outside and under the house's crawlspace.
· slide
· He went back inside but couldn't sleep- he was in full on panic mode. In one aspect his fantasy world had made the dangerous leap and crossed over into reality. On the other hand, he had a 19 year old boy's weight in evidence sitting in his crawlspace.
· His focus turned towards the latter- he needed to get rid of the body. When the next day came, Damer went shopping- he bought a large knife and went to the crawlspace to get to work.
· The crawlspace itself was rather large- part of the house was on stilts due to the house being on a hill.
· Dahmer got to the grisly work of dissassembling the body. first he cut off his arms and legs, then removed his head. Dahmer also too the time to recreate some of his experiments with roadkill, cutting open the belly and poking about in the innards.
· Most of the blood soaked into the ground behind the house. Dahmer then put the body parts in triple lined garbage bags, burned his ID and clothes, and left the bags under the crawlspace for a while.
· Dahmer spent the better part of the day trying to figure out what to do with the body. HE ultimatley decided to dump the remains into a ravine 10 miles from his house. What follows is a crazy and really sad story.
· Slide
· Dahmer loaded up the bags full of body parts into the back of his car a little before 3 AM. He downed a few beers then drove off. A police car arond 3AM signalled for him to stop and pull over; the cop called for back up and told Jeff to get out of the car. They had Jeff do the schtick with his finger on his nose and walking the line.
· Jeff passed, but wasn't out of the woods yet- the cop shown a flashlight in the car and asked -" whats that smell?"- jeff then implemented his silver tongue- a skill that he would use throughout his criminal career to explain the bags away. He claimed he was taking the trash to the dump- this late in the evening because his parents were in a divorce arguments and he couldn't sleep.
· Its crazy to think about it...had the cop involved been more diligent, Dahmer's spree would have been over before it started. What's even crazier is the cop who flagged the young dahmer down would later be the self same cop who interview dahmer while he was in custody.
· Dahmer returned home with the bodies in the car and a new speeding ticket. He stowed the bags back under the crawlspaces, and then did something completely beyond the pale of what he had done before. He opened the bags and rifled through them to find steven hick's head.
· He took it upstairs, relishing in the notion that it was HIS now. He then proceeded to masturbate while looking at it. This was a major escalation for dahmer and represented the turning of a page into a new darker chapter in dahmer's book.
· Serial killers are almost all characterized by their small allowances and incremental steps toward depravity. this was one of dahmer's first steps down this road.
· Dahmer was out of ideas regarding the body of Steven Hicks; he decided to bury it in a pipe behind his house. He kept the head for a bit longer then disposed of that too.
· Slide
· He threw Steven's necklace and the butchering knife he had used on the body in the Cuyahoga River.
· Taint your life quote. page 55.
· Out of all the deaths he caused, Dahmer regretted this one the most. This may be the only he regretted at all. It would be 9 years before he killed again, but the memories would haunt him the whole time.
· He would at times, break down into tears over it and in 1991, when discussing it with a pschiatrist after his arrest, he only go silent when the topic would come out.
· The pschiatrist would prod him for details to which Dahmer only replied "I'd rather be talking about anything else in the world than this".
· I really like the way Shrine put his next point- pg. 56 moral inertia quote.
· Hicks was last seen alive on 18th of June- his body would be missing for 13 years.
· Slide
· DAHMER LEFT ALONE
· Joyce decides to leave and go to wisconsin, taking david with her. she urges jeff to come, but he decides to stay.
· since lionel is living at a motel, this leaves jeff home alone. to my understanding, this would be the last time he sees joyce. (circle back if false).
· Jeff is left home alone, with no almost no groceries to speak of, and a wreck of a house for around three weeks- ultimatly his dad finds out the house is empty and moves back in.
· school was out, and college hadnt started- he was alone mentally and physically for almost an entire month. before joyce had left him there for days on end when she went for periodic visits. It was during one of these periods that dahmer first brought his fantasy world into reality.
· this was much worse. i use the phrase much worse, because it served as time for jeff's darkest fantasies to solidify. he was alone with his thoughts, masterbating, eating drinking and sleeping all day. as his sex craze began to deepen he turned his attention towards...
· FLASH FORWARD-
· Lionel and future step mom Shari come back to the house in Bath to find Jeff living in a trashed and empty house with just himself, his dog, and his rubbed raw dick.
· Shari took it on her self to get Jeff ready for college.
· slide
· Jeff spent his time drinking, dontating plasma to pay for booze. The clinic had to mark up hif fingernails to keep him from overdonating.
· He went to Ohio State
· He flunked out his first semester, despite his dad paying for two semesters in advance. Jeff's time in college makes a lot of sense- not excusable but in a weird way, logical. his drinking was part addiction, part burial mechanism. His detachment from others was a form of distrust both of his own self and of his own place in larger society.
· With Jeff back home, he hung out more with high school dumb ass friend Jeff Six. The two spent considerable time smoking pot and drinking, getting in trouble at one point for running over someone's lawn, and concluding with Jeff losing his parent's borrowed car. After Lionel and Shari returned from an extensive search for their own car, they concluded Jeff had to get his shit together.
· slide
· He would need to go into the army-per Lionel's sugges-tolding him. He was accepted into a three year enlistment in the Military Police School- On Christmas eve ( afew weeks after the enlistment), Lionel would marry Shari- jeff didn't attend the ceremony. Four days after Christmas he headed for Alabama for training at Fort Mclellin.
· The military was an odd fit for Dahmer; on one hand the discipline and jam packed training schedule kept him off the bottle and helped keep his mind off of his mind.
· On the other hand, once drinking was again permitted, dahmer began to hit the sauce again- he was so frequently reprimanded for drunkenness that he once got his whole platoon written up for insubordination. His fellow soldiers subsequently gathered and beat the shit out of him; he was left bloodied and one of his ear-drums was broken- he would suffer ear aches 10 years later. That helped in some degree in keeping his rampant alcoholism n check.
· He left basic training and went through medic training- coming out fully trained. The skills would be later put to grisly use.
· Slide
· Dahmer was then assigned and stationed to Baumholder West Germany at a local base. He would spend two years there, being mostly remembered as a loner.
· One of the older soldiers in his unit suspected Dahmer of being homsexual, primarily on the basis that Dahmer "always seemed like he was hiding something". He spent most of his time in Germany walking about the local areas; he would frequent adult bookstores, browsing homosexual porn and drinking half off booze.
· During his more profound drunken bouts, he would weep. Shrine debates that he wasn't necessarily weeping over Hicks, but over the predicament he got himself into when he murdered.
· Although there aren't any missing persons reports or other indications that dahmer committed any crimes while in Germany, there is an odd story that I'll touch on. Dahmer was invited to a dinner party in 1979 for Thanksgiving. Snow was falling heavily outside and their host suggested those invited spend the night and wait out the storm.
· Later in the evening, the host of the party and dahmer got into an argument and dahmer slunk out of the house around 10:30, walking off into the snow.
· Some of the invitees noticed and spent 15 minutes or so outside looking for him, but were driven outside by the cold. The assumption was that Jeff had taken a taxi back to the base.
· FOUR HOURS late, dahmer shows up, but somethings not right. He appeared confused and distracted and didn't seem like he had been in the cold at all. His jacket wasn't cold like you'd expect, and he had lost his glasses. Dahmer set to washing his hands vigously in the kitchen, the host thinking there MAY have been some blood on his jacket. Whe nasked where had been, dahmer couldn't remember but assumed he must have done "something bad".
· A few days later, the host asked dahmer what happened that night- dahmer remained quiet, but later remarked "you know, sometimes the best thing for the soul is to confess". After drinking his way through the majority of his time in Germany, both on and off duty, Dahmer was given an honourable discharge 6 months early and was sent stateside to a city of his choosing.
· Slide
· Looking for better weather, Dahmer chose to fly to Florida. Jeff didnt realize his trunk with all of his shit or sent them off to start a new life , including his porn was sent back to his old house. Some time later, his brother David would find the trunk and the porn stash.
· In florida, he took a motel room and worked at a sub shop. he worked seven days a week and spent his earnings on booze. the job sucked and he couldn't make ends meet. He would eventually get kicked out of his motel and lived on the beach, becoming homeless.
· He broke down, finding he was unable to run from himself, and called his dad, asking to return home.
· Once home, and once Lionel and shari were at work, Dahmer went to the pipe he had stashed Hick's inside 3 years later and hauled his remains through the woods.
· He went to a small cliff and took what were now just bones, crushing each one with a large rock. He then took the fragment remains and scattered them throughout the woods.
· Slide
· Dahmer had returned home to Bath Ohio; Lionel and Shari (his dad and step mom) had gotten used to their new married life and had spent the past 3 years in relative marital bliss.
· They now had a new house guest in Jeffrey Dahmer- a quiet, dopey, jobless 21 year old step child.
· Lionel was at a loss- it didnt seem like there was anything his son could do if even the army kicked him out.
· Although he tried to help out around the house to stay busy, Jeff eventually fell back into his old ways- he got arrested for the first time at a Ramada Inn for drinking vodka straight from the bottle in the hotel lounge.
· Employees asked him to leave, but he refused and was escorted out. He then set up camp by the front door, where employees then had to try to pry him away.
· They eventually called the police and he was sent to the Akron Correctional Facility. The charges were eventually dropped to a municipal citation, but shit didn't get better after that.
· Lionel and Shari decided to dump Jeff off at Lionel's mom house in West Allis, Wisconsin.
· This solved two problems; Grandma (Catherine) was getting lonely and old- Lionel needed a way to keep tabs on her, and also needed to dump Jeff. Voila.
· Dahmer moved in to grandma's house in December, and took a liking to the arrangement immediately.
· He loved his grandma and her house was cozy and in a good quiet neighborhood. It was also very close to downtown Milwaukee.
· Dahmer was close with his grandma, when asked upfront if he loved her, he tellingly replied " Yup, she's lived in that house a long time". Nice little dodge there.
· Shrine makes a decent point; she was a kind church going woman, loving and warm- she would have been a fantastic rolemodel and influence on dahmer earlier in life- by the time he moved in to live with here, it was likely too late.
· Dahmer would spend 6 years with grandma, and the first moths were simple ones- helping around the house, watching TV together, and enjoying each other's company.
· Dahme had picked up smoking in the army btw- he smoked about a pack a day at this point
· slide
· Dahmer picked up a gig at a local blood bank as a phlebotamist- he tapped into his medic skills from the army.
· he hated the work but had to start chipping in financially rather than living on grandma's generosity.
· Dahmer also spent the time developing a secret inner life in his new surrondings as well. Dahmer bought a .357 firearm, to keep his target practice skills fresh from the army.
· He had it for about 6 months until his dad found out and convinced dahmer to hand it over. Dahmer also began reading the Satanic Bible; I personally dont think anything of this- I think he was more curious than anything and was trying to explore his own personal demons.
· He also stole a bottle of blood from the clinic and, out of curiosity, drank the blood. The taste was revolting and he spat it out.
· Slide
· In August 1982, at the state fair he was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct for urinating in public- the arresting officer never mentioned urination. instead the language he used was page. 62
· That Thanksgiving Dahmer decided to turn over a new leaf; from that point on,
· Dahmer spent a significant portion of his time in church with his grandmother, finding religion as a way to cope with his internal turmoil.
· He even curbed his masturbation habit to once per week, and only by grinding on the bed. No-Handsies doesnt count. This good boy period lasted two years.
· Jeff spent Christmas of 83 with his mother and brother- this time would mark the last time he saw his mother until his arrest some years later.
· Slide
· In January of 1985, Dahmer took a job at the Ambrosia Chocolate factory- it was a dull job, but he could pay his grandmother 300$ rent and stay busy working the late shift from 11PM- 7 AM.

I. Who is Jeffrey Dahmer A. Jeffrey Dahmer is one of the most famous serial killers and sex fiends in American history; Dahmer killed 17 men, engaged in necrophilia and cannibalism
B. Dahmer was criminally active from the summer of 1978 up until his capture in 1991. C. Part of what makes Dahmer so fascinating is the nature of his crimes. Dahmer went further, faster than most people would ever dream going. His crimes and perversions are the stuff of nightmares, but what really fascinates me is who he was before his crimes. Many people identify with being a confused loner, trying to fit in. Most of us make it; others don't. Dahmer is a fascinating case study surrounding the nature of evil and raises alot of really neat questions about whether one is "born to kill". 
II. Childhood A. Born to Lionel and Joyce Dahmer on May 21, 1960. i. Theres alot of debate over whether Jeff was drowned in attention or was deprived of it; Brian Masters' book "The Shrine of Jeffrey Dahmer" postulates that Joyce loathed breastfeeding and refused to do it.
Lionel goes so far as to blame Joyce's difficult pregnancy as being a contributing factor towards Dahmer's behavior. Most of this seems like a crock of crap; many kids are raised on formula, and loads of women have difficult pregnancies.
 ii. More on Lionel's claims: "There could be possibly some physiological, some biochemical basis to this because my ex-wife had been taking about 26 tablets of different medications about one month after becoming pregnant," Lionel Dahmer said in an interview aired Wednesday on the syndicated television program "Inside Edition." They were described as sedating and tranquilizing drugs which have the scientific names of meprobamate, mephobarbital, phenobarbitol and secobarbital and the female sex hormone progestin. The report said they now are considered potential risks to a developing fetus. B. Who are the Parents 1. Lionel Herbert Dahmer Quiet and studious man--had a degree in chemistry and that was his primary career. Lionel was "married to his work for the most part. trying to advance career and get doctorate. 2. Annette "Joyce" Dahmer highly emotional woman; thought to be a bit of a hypochondriac.- most of what we know about Joyce dahmer is derived from lionel's descriptions of her which could be pretty inaccurate for all we know. 
One story i particular really highlights her flightiness; they had an argument one night, and a PREGNANT joyce dahmer walked out of the house with no boots on and stormed off for 4 blocks to the park.
This was in the middle of the winter, and "Shrine" talks about the wind that winter blowing in from lake michigan, icy cold and snow banks piled on the ground. Lionel had to come "prove his love" and fetch her. Joyce Dahmer has refused interviews for the most part.
 3. Other observations: both are pretty self centered in their own respect. 
Her father was an alcoholic and since its widely believed that those genes are hereditary, one might posit that dahmer was genetically predisposed. joyce was ignored by drunkard dad a bunch and so, shrine puts forward, she demanded respect and attention from everyone else.
shrine almost fetishisticly focuses on joyce. lionel did have a temper, but his sin was for the most part his slavish devotion to work. Joyce was pregnant within days of their marriage.
 C. Baby Dahmer- Stories and facts from infancy 1. Birth Dahmer was born at the evangelical deaconess hospital in milwaukee- 4:34 PM on 21 may 1960. 6 lbs 15 ounces. it was a Saturday; books says good looking baby, cause handsome parents. 
parents went through most of the new parent stuff; baby book etc. jeff had casts on his legs till 4 months and had to wear lifts in his shoes till 6 to correct his legs. Took a shining to animals as most kids do.
Joyce again didnt do breast feeding; taped breasts. Find book quote
Jeff was described as awkward and ill at ease with other kids in elementary school.
By age 3 doctors looking at him mentioned he had a hernia that may need operating on; this would be a pivitol event in dahmer's life. Few weeks after Christmas he was taken to the hospital; double hernia surgery was needed- alot for a 4 year old to take in.
Jeff remembers watching Bewitched on tv with a bunch of other kids before the operation; this would be in 19 march 1964.
Effect of surgery on Dahmer
Surgery took place on 19th of March 1964; the first thing Dahmer knew was intense pain in his groin region.
The young boy thought his privates had been cut off; the pain lasted about a week. The surgery would not have normally merited much attention at all, but dahmer's crimes themselves were so specific in nature that it makes one wonder.
The surgery was in a sensitive area, and involved lots of people digging around inside of him. Shrine makes a decent point here; this would be the most intimate event of his life for a long time.
Also tricked a black neighborhood boy into sticking his hand into a hornet's nest thinking there might be ladybugs inside. A lot of dahmer's victims were black. Is that telling of something?
The most commonly repeated story is the fiddlesticks story- jeff finds some bones under his crawlspace while cleaning it with his dad.
He played with them alot, loving the sound they made when they hit the ground. When he would hold his pets, he mentioned he could feel their fiddlesticks...and wondered if they looked the same.
 3. 1966 and Jeff Growing up jeff is now 6 jeff's mom is hitting up pills hard, throwing back equanil and seconal to try to give herself peace. 
She'd often double down on dosage if it wasnt mellowing her out soon enough. Shrine alludes to a possible suicide attempt, but i couldnt find any more info from other sources.
Shrine also carries alot of water for Lionel sayin he's overworked cause he's busy studying for his doctorote, working, and having to shop too (god forbid). apparently lionel had to handle shopping cause joyce couldn't drive.
Lionel would hit joyce- shrine continues the virtual handjob to lionel stating that he did it to calm her nervousness, never out of malevolence.
either way jeff's teachers reported they felt jeff was neglected. Joyce found church and tried to use it to battle her depression. she also told lionel she wanted a second child. that seems like a way to get ouf depression and into madness. Around this time, Lionel got his doctorate and got a gig in ohio meaning the family had to move.
Jeff had to sell his cat as a result. By this time, Jeff was becoming more inward and withdrawn. read the passage from shrine page 26. Temporarily holding this erosion of his personailty was the prospect of having a baby brother to play with.
D. Childhood and Teenage Years 1. Doylestown Lionel's new gig brought the family to doylestown ohio. 
Jeff's brother david was born on december 18th 1966. Joyce was gloomy with depression and the mood in the house was dark.
Jeff got a dog- Frisky to compensate for having to sell his cat. Joyce bitched about how much noise the neighbors made; they had to move- despite it being a rural area with neighbors far off.
They rented a house in Barberton Ohio a few months after moving to doylestown. Dahmer didnt really do well in town and the introvert didnt really like making new friends in a new town.
The kids in town played a choking game with dahmer; an incident of note considering that dahmer killed almost all of his victims via choking. Jeff was invited to stangle one boy who promised not to tell the teacher; of course the kid and ratted him out to the teacher.
The big takeaway is that dahmer felt betrayed; shrine postulates that this betrayal was some of the first blushes of a schizoid personality.
page 28 for description of schizoid. another betrayed trust was dahmer giving his teacher some tadpoles in jar he found. she kept them in class for a day or two; after that the disappeared. dahmer then, incidentally, was playing at a kids house and saw that the teacher had give nthe tadpoles to the kid.
dahmer, felt betrayed and hurt and killed the tadpoles by pouring motor oil in the jar. -if she doesnt want them, noone can have them.
 2. Bath When taking the family for a drive one day, was driving through Bath Ohio; they saw a home for sale- 4480 west bath road; they would buy the home and it would be their family home for 10 years until the marriage fell apart and dahmer began his trip down bathshit road. 
the house was a big step up- lionel built a chicken coop, jeff had woods and a lake to explore- it was at this time he began to explore dead bodies he'd find- to a very minor extent- frogs and small animals.
dahmer was turning into a bit of a layabout- never seemed to take interest in anything besides personal secretive pursuits. mix of his father's in-wardness and his mother's self centerdness
Jeff one night when eating chicken, asked his dad what would happen if he was to bleach chicken bones- his dad was super proud of this and saw it as hope that his kid would turn into a scientist. this was when jeff was 10. a
 3. 1970 Joyce's pill popping reached a head- she was tossing back 8 equanil a day on top of laxatives and sleeping pills. she was running from something; jeff recalls he could feel the uncertainty of his familial situation- 
page 31 for direct marriage quote.
Joyce spent most of her time in bed, and other normally friendly family moments were laced with tension of whether joyce would be able to handle it.
She still kept popping pills though. Jeff blamed himself but also didnt have anyone he felt he could take to, for fear of freaking his mother out.
He would go out into the woods and beat trees to work out his frustration. early alienation is a common symptom of people who become compulsive murders.
page 32.
description of child aberration. shrine even goes so far as to say he was bad from infancy- postulating that troublesome and demanding babies are exercising basic human emotion. "good babies" are actually dead inside, according to the book.
 4. Teenage Years Lionel was noticing dahmer's withdrawn nature even more and tried to correct it- with tennis. he taught him the game, hoping it would "awaken his energy"- most people saw it for what it was- jeff being pressured into the game. 
they tried boy scouts, even when they were killing some lambs they had raised, jeff was mostly emotionless.
While dad was trying to pull him out of the dead zone, mom completely unplugged. jeff was never really close to mom, and she stayed in bed almost all day every day during this time.
when joyce was awake she seemed desperate and petty, letting small things oppress her- jeff in turn was inward and secretive. jeff seemed unfased by puberty- shrine speculates that because his emotions were so muted, his reponses to thsoe changes were muted in turn.
He had a bit of homosexual exploration with a childhood friend, eric. eric initiated and they would hike and fish, while later meeting in a tree house to kiss, touch, and caress. They did this around 3-4 times and then broke it off due to fear of getting found out.
 Dahmer had also been drinking since around age 14. he was super apathetic but also would act out as class clown. page 35 some classic "pranks"-seems alot like a stupid youtuber. dahmer tried to make a friend or two, but some had their parents say he wasnt allowed to hang out with dahmer, while other friendships never developed any depth. 
he was a smart kid, but his grades sucked- partly from goofing off, apathy, and hitting the booze. his parents tried to get a tutor but it didnt really work out well.
Dahmer would spend most of his free time patrolling the woods for animal skeletons- the same eric kid who had the homosexual liason found his little hut and noticed the many collected skeletal samples.
there was a graveyard for animals next to the hut. he kept a pig he dissected in school. nothing was perceived to be suspicious about this- his dad thought he would be a decent biologist perhaps. jeff developed even more, hunting for road kill he would haul off and cut open.
dahmer didnt follow the common killer being cruel to animals trope; he was a product man and was interested in the corpse alone. sadists want to exert control over others and want the interplay between themselves and the one they inflict pain on; dahmer wasnt into that and just wanted the body- the machine of life itself.
dog bone story pg 37
As dahmer's teen years progress he's getting more and more drunk; one of his main buddies was Jeff Six who was a pot dealer in the student body. Jeff Six was a piece of shit, even bothering dahmer; when driving together, Six would intentionally cruise around for dogs to try to hit with his car.
Shrine states that Dahmer recalls Six hitting 4 dogs in a day. They hit a puppy one time and the gaze it gave dahmer was something he remembered even in prison all those years later.
Circle back to eyes open victim. Dahmer was largely asexual in high school and his parents had completely cooled sexually with lionel sleeping on the couch.
Dahmer at this point was masterbting three times a day or more and was beginning to look at homoerotic imagry, especially at male torsos. Discuss the first developmental phase of sexuality.
Alongside this was the mostly seperate desire to explore the body; they were seperate for now, but the sexual progression would soon fuse to this part of dahmer's nature.
Dahmer began to obsess over a jogger that would run by his house- dahmer wanted to touch his body, but couldnt figure out how to make that happen. Dahmer planned to capture him, hiding in the bushes one day with a baseball bat. Despite the jogger having a fairly routine schedule, the day dahmer waited, the jogger never showed.
How had dahmer progressed to potential violence so quickly? Dahmer claims not to know, but the likely culprit was unchecked sexual fantasy. Fantasy quote page 42.
Masterbation was both a safety valve to vent sexual pressure, but it also solidifies the objects of desire and when the flight of fantasy meets the gravity of reality, it can be difficult to reconcile. Dahmer made the mistake of beginning to allow fantasy to spill over into reality.
1978
 Christmas time, dahmer's parents begin divorce filings. during the previous year they had tried to get counseling but that failed. 
when joyce went out of town for her dad's funeral she shacked up with another guy.
they originally decided to split amicably but lionel then sends her a registered letter from his lawyer saying she has to pack up in a week. After yelling and fighting with one another, dahmer decides to do the alpha move and move out.
he went and stayed at the ohio motel at 2248 north cleveland massillon road.
Meanwhile the courts declared joyce needs to undergo a psych eval. lionel sent a full book of information about his wife he had been collecting on her mental health, and her substance abuse issues. joyce in turn told her therapist all about her struggles even describing lionel as "insatiable".
quote about her health page 44. the parents discussed frequently who would have custody over david, but jeff was mostly forgotten about.
shrine calls dahmer at this point, "dangerously disconnected"- completley overlooked in the divorce struggle. this would lead to alot of trouble.
prom date story? page 46- also went to DC with his class and ended up calling the then vice president- he was able to make a face to face introduction with his class mates and the VP
he and his few friends who by some accounts used him for laughs more than anything, managed to get dahmer into almost every group yearbook photo as a prank.
the parents get a divorce, and joyce effectively gets the house- as part of the agreement, joyce is awarded custody of minor david, but told to stay within the court's jurisdiction.
stephen hicks
dahmer's fantasies continued to evolve to the point where he began to understand what really turned him on- the male torso and the concept of possessing someone. the fantasy of the hitchhiker
the thoughts even got to the point where he thought he would have to kill someone to achieve the idea of possessing someone. dahmer kept these urges at bay through masturbating, unknowingly solidifying them in his psyche. page 51. arrows from the blue quote.
one day in june, dahmer asked his dad if he could borrow his car- i think lionel was still living at the hotel. dahmer was to return the car the next day. the pretense was to go the movies. cruising around 5 along the highway, dahmer saw something that caught his eye- a young man hitchhiking along the road side.
The young man was Steve Hicks, and he was the ideal victim for dahmer- young, handsome, and shirtless. it sounds funny, but given dahmer's obesession with torsos, this was borderline pornagraphic for him.
The stretch of road they were on wasn't commonly used, and dahmer realized he had stumbled onto a perfect scenario. A car, a willing and handsome passenger, and an empty house.
Dahmer was nervous but turned around and made the approach. Dahmer introduced himself, and Steven in turn introduced himself. Steven was from Illinois and dahmer was able to convince him to head back to his place with an offer of beer and some weed.
When they arrived, they headed to Jeff's room; steve passed on the weed, but took jeff up on his offer for some beers. jeff began to frantically try and figure out how to make a pass at steve.
meanwhile steve revealed he was very much straight- he had in fact just finished celebrating his 19th birthday with his girlfriend.
Dahmer began to get more and more upset each time the girlfriend was issued- the pressure was building and each word from steve in that regard was like turning the key of a jack in the box.
dahmer began to realize this conversation, and in turn his whole life wasn't going anywhere- dark frustration started to build.
after a few hours hicks metioned it was probably time for him to be heading out. this was the last chance- nervousness and anger drove dahmer's next steps. he wasn't going to let someone else leave him. he excused himself to the cellar for a moment- grabbed an 8 inch barbell- took the weights off, and went back upstairs.
steve was sitting with his back to the cellar door- Dahmer seized his chance and swung at his head with the barbell. The impact angered Hicks who began to fight with Dahmer; a short bru haha ensued but Dahmer hit hicks over the head a second time and knocked him out.
Dahmer was likely full of nervous energy and excitement, and was beyond reasoning or rationale. He hesitated then took the barbell and strangled Hick's body with it.
Dahmer had killed for the first time; and once his nerves died down and he caught his breath, he claimed his prize.
Stripping Hick's of his shirt he began to revel in the beauty of Hick's body. Again Dahmer was a product killer; after all this Dahmer had his object of desire. He ran his hands all over the body, especially his chest- kissing and caressing it. He lay down next to the body for a while. My guess is definitly big spoon.
Finally, Dahmer stood up and masterbated on to the body. This act of masterbation I feel has incredible significance- it begins to tie violence into sexuality and to further reinforce his desires to obtain product at any cost. Like anyone who has cum will tell you, Dahmer was hit with post nut clarity- he had killed somebody.
His desires had escalated then become real. Dahmer was consumed with fear and once night fell, he dragged the body outside and under the house's crawlspace.
He went back inside but couldn't sleep- he was in full on panic mode. In one aspect his fantasy world had made the dangerous leap and crossed over into reality. On the other hand, he had a 19 year old boy's weight in evidence sitting in his crawlspace.
His focus turned towards the latter- he needed to get rid of the body. When the next day came, Damer went shopping- he bought a large knife and went to the crawlspace to get to work.
The crawlspace itself was rather large- part of the house was on stilts due to the house being on a hill.
Dahmer got to the grisly work of dissassembling the body. first he cut off his arms and legs, then removed his head. Dahmer also too the time to recreate some of his experiments with roadkill, cutting open the belly and poking about in the innards.
Most of the blood soaked into the ground behind the house. Dahmer then put the body parts in triple lined garbage bags, burned his ID and clothes, and left the bags under the crawlspace for a while.
Dahmer spent the better part of the day trying to figure out what to do with the body. HE ultimatley decided to dump the remains into a ravine 10 miles from his house. What follows is a crazy and really sad story.
Dahmer loaded up the bags full of body parts into the back of his car a little before 3 AM. He downed a few beers then drove off. A police car arond 3AM signalled for him to stop and pull over; the cop called for back up and told Jeff to get out of the car. They had Jeff do the schtick with his finger on his nose and walking the line.
Jeff passed, but wasn't out of the woods yet- the cop shown a flashlight in the car and asked -" whats that smell?"- jeff then implemented his silver tongue- a skill that he would use throughout his criminal career to explain the bags away. He claimed he was taking the trash to the dump- this late in the evening because his parents were in a divorce arguments and he couldn't sleep.
Its crazy to think about it...had the cop involved been more diligent, Dahmer's spree would have been over before it started. What's even crazier is the cop who flagged the young dahmer down would later be the self same cop who interview dahmer while he was in custody.
Dahmer returned home with the bodies in the car and a new speeding ticket. He stowed the bags back under the crawlspaces, and then did something completely beyond the pale of what he had done before. He opened the bags and rifled through them to find steven hick's head.
He took it upstairs, relishing in the notion that it was HIS now. He then proceeded to masturbate while looking at it. This was a major escalation for dahmer and represented the turning of a page into a new darker chapter in dahmer's book.
Serial killers are almost all characterized by their small allowances and incremental steps toward depravity. this was one of dahmer's first steps down this road.
Dahmer was out of ideas regarding the body of Steven Hicks; he decided to bury it in a pipe behind his house. He kept the head for a bit longer then disposed of that too.
He threw Steven's necklace and the butchering knife he had used on the body in the Cuyahoga River.
Taint your life quote. page 55.
Out of all the deaths he caused, Dahmer regretted this one the most. This may be the only he regretted at all. It would be 9 years before he killed again, but the memories would haunt him the whole time.
He would at times, break down into tears over it and in 1991, when discussing it with a pschiatrist after his arrest, he only go silent when the topic would come out.
The pschiatrist would prod him for details to which Dahmer only replied "I'd rather be talking about anything else in the world than this".
I really like the way Shrine put his next point- pg. 56 moral inertia quote.
Hicks was last seen alive on 18th of June- his body would be missing for 13 years.
DAHMER LEFT ALONE
Joyce decides to leave and go to wisconsin, taking david with her. she urges jeff to come, but he decides to stay.
since lionel is living at a motel, this leaves jeff home alone. to my understanding, this would be the last time he sees joyce. (circle back if false).
Jeff is left home alone, with no almost no groceries to speak of, and a wreck of a house for around three weeks- ultimatly his dad finds out the house is empty and moves back in.
school was out, and college hadnt started- he was alone mentally and physically for almost an entire month. before joyce had left him there for days on end when she went for periodic visits. It was during one of these periods that dahmer first brought his fantasy world into reality.
this was much worse. i use the phrase much worse, because it served as time for jeff's darkest fantasies to solidify. he was alone with his thoughts, masterbating, eating drinking and sleeping all day. as his sex craze began to deepen he turned his attention towards...
FLASH FORWARD-
Lionel and future step mom Shari come back to the house in Bath to find Jeff living in a trashed and empty house with just himself, his dog, and his rubbed raw dick.
Shari took it on her self to get Jeff ready for college.
Jeff spent his time drinking, dontating plasma to pay for booze. The clinic had to mark up hif fingernails to keep him from overdonating.
He went to Ohio State
He flunked out his first semester, despite his dad paying for two semesters in advance. Jeff's time in college makes a lot of sense- not excusable but in a weird way, logical. his drinking was part addiction, part burial mechanism. His detachment from others was a form of distrust both of his own self and of his own place in larger society.
With Jeff back home, he hung out more with high school dumb ass friend Jeff Six. The two spent considerable time smoking pot and drinking, getting in trouble at one point for running over someone's lawn, and concluding with Jeff losing his parent's borrowed car. After Lionel and Shari returned from an extensive search for their own car, they concluded Jeff had to get his shit together.
He would need to go into the army-per Lionel's sugges-tolding him. He was accepted into a three year enlistment in the Military Police School- On Christmas eve ( afew weeks after the enlistment), Lionel would marry Shari- jeff didn't attend the ceremony. Four days after Christmas he headed for Alabama for training at Fort Mclellin.
The military was an odd fit for Dahmer; on one hand the discipline and jam packed training schedule kept him off the bottle and helped keep his mind off of his mind.
On the other hand, once drinking was again permitted, dahmer began to hit the sauce again- he was so frequently reprimanded for drunkenness that he once got his whole platoon written up for insubordination. His fellow soldiers subsequently gathered and beat the shit out of him; he was left bloodied and one of his ear-drums was broken- he would suffer ear aches 10 years later. That helped in some degree in keeping his rampant alcoholism n check.
He left basic training and went through medic training- coming out fully trained. The skills would be later put to grisly use.
Dahmer was then assigned and stationed to Baumholder West Germany at a local base. He would spend two years there, being mostly remembered as a loner.
One of the older soldiers in his unit suspected Dahmer of being homsexual, primarily on the basis that Dahmer "always seemed like he was hiding something". He spent most of his time in Germany walking about the local areas; he would frequent adult bookstores, browsing homosexual porn and drinking half off booze.
During his more profound drunken bouts, he would weep. Shrine debates that he wasn't necessarily weeping over Hicks, but over the predicament he got himself into when he murdered.
Although there aren't any missing persons reports or other indications that dahmer committed any crimes while in Germany, there is an odd story that I'll touch on. Dahmer was invited to a dinner party in 1979 for Thanksgiving. Snow was falling heavily outside and their host suggested those invited spend the night and wait out the storm.
Later in the evening, the host of the party and dahmer got into an argument and dahmer slunk out of the house around 10:30, walking off into the snow.
Some of the invitees noticed and spent 15 minutes or so outside looking for him, but were driven outside by the cold. The assumption was that Jeff had taken a taxi back to the base.
FOUR HOURS late, dahmer shows up, but somethings not right. He appeared confused and distracted and didn't seem like he had been in the cold at all. His jacket wasn't cold like you'd expect, and he had lost his glasses. Dahmer set to washing his hands vigously in the kitchen, the host thinking there MAY have been some blood on his jacket. Whe nasked where had been, dahmer couldn't remember but assumed he must have done "something bad".
A few days later, the host asked dahmer what happened that night- dahmer remained quiet, but later remarked "you know, sometimes the best thing for the soul is to confess". After drinking his way through the majority of his time in Germany, both on and off duty, Dahmer was given an honourable discharge 6 months early and was sent stateside to a city of his choosing.
Looking for better weather, Dahmer chose to fly to Florida. Jeff didnt realize his trunk with all of his shit or sent them off to start a new life , including his porn was sent back to his old house. Some time later, his brother David would find the trunk and the porn stash.
In florida, he took a motel room and worked at a sub shop. he worked seven days a week and spent his earnings on booze. the job sucked and he couldn't make ends meet. He would eventually get kicked out of his motel and lived on the beach, becoming homeless.
He broke down, finding he was unable to run from himself, and called his dad, asking to return home.
Once home, and once Lionel and shari were at work, Dahmer went to the pipe he had stashed Hick's inside 3 years later and hauled his remains through the woods.
He went to a small cliff and took what were now just bones, crushing each one with a large rock. He then took the fragment remains and scattered them throughout the woods.

2019.07.17 22:31 pijinglish Part 4: A Timeline of Epstein, Trump, Sex Trafficking, and the Intelligence Community

EDIT: This was originally posted over at Keep_Track, but they decided it was still too conspiracy minded. Anyway, enjoy.
I'm posting this as a follow up to my posts last week, which have since been removed by the mods. While I might not agree with their decision, this post isn't intended to be an angry rebuttal. This is their sub, and I can understand why they felt my posts might not be appropriate for a sub that wishes to be taken seriously. I tried to acknowledge the links which I knew might be problematic, but that doesn't change the fact that, as sources, they remain problematic. That said, all three posts seemed to be generally well received, and I'd like to think they held some value even if they were admittedly highly speculative at times.
If you don't know what I'm talking about, I've reposted last week's posts on a different sub, and I'll link to them here if the mods don't mind. [Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 -- I'll wait for approval before linking.] This post, then, is my attempt to explain why I think an examination of this kind is necessary at the moment, and why I don't believe it to be a liberal version of Pizzagate. I promise I'm not trying to skirt the rules or to somehow make this about me, but I don't think I really clarified a few important points that I should have.
First off, I followed Pizzagate right from the start. (Searching through Reddit comments is a nightmare, but here's one quick thread I was involved in around the time the story broke. Here's another.) I'm originally from DC myself, and I actually know several people who helped open Comet Pizza back in 2006. They were bartenders, kitchen staff, and servers, and I spent a fair amount of time there after hours while my friends closed up. My friends' bands played there, we had birthday parties there, even my grad school graduation party was held there. So when I first heard the allegations I was pretty shocked, but then it became pretty clear pretty quickly that it all looked like bullshit. The story has been pretty roundly debunked by this point, so I don't think I need to get into that. How, then, is this different? The most important difference, in my mind, is the origin of the story.
In the case of Pizzagate, there wasn't really a coherent starting point. It likely originated on 4chan and was then amplified based on wishful thinking and intentional propaganda, despite the fact that there were no known victims. I'll get into that a bit more in a few. My posts last week were, I admit, highly speculative. The idea that Trump and Epstein have been involved in a sex trafficking ring with links to the intelligence community seems absurd. But I wasn't speculating based on something I pulled from thin air. I was speculating based on comments made by the Secretary of Labor, regarding his time as U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida. Whatever our opinions are of Acosta, he's not some random neckbeard on 4chan, and these are his words about why he decided to cut a deal with Epstein:
“I was told Epstein ‘belonged to intelligence’ and to leave it alone."
That's a really, really strange claim. I think it deserves to be examined, but I'm not sure how we go about doing that when both the subject matter and circumstances of the claim are so utterly bizarre that they defy belief. Whether they ultimately have any merit is still completely up in the air, but given their source, and given the fact that there are dozens of actual victims who have given testimony implicating both Epstein and Trump, individually and together, of committing sexual assault and rape on both adults and adolescents, we might give Acosta's claims a closer look. But in order to do so we have to wrap our minds around some really unbelievable ideas. That was what my posts last week were trying, albeit clumsily, to accomplish.
In Part 1, I wanted to establish that yes, the CIA had dabbled in prostitution and sexual blackmail. (I should have probably also mentioned Russia's reliance on kompromat, but for the most part I think that's more widely agreed upon by the people who frequent this sub.) I also wanted to establish that many of the people in Trump's circle in the mid-1970's and 80's were allegedly involved in various forms of sexual blackmail and child exploitation through modeling agencies. The rumors about Roy Cohn existed long before Trump ever entered the picture as a political figure.
And while I mentioned Roger Stone as a "dirty trickster", I failed to mention that, according to Business Insider:
(01/25/2019) Everything we know about the 'Manhattan Madam', who moved out of the New York duplex she shared with Roger Stone a week before the FBI raided it:
New York's notorious "Manhattan Madam" has come back into the limelight. Kristin Davis, who was known for running a high-end prostitution ring in the 2000s, is a close associate to Roger Stone, who was arrested in the Russia investigation on Friday on charges that he lied to Congress and obstructed the probe. Davis, who shared a New York duplex with Stone, told CNN that the FBI called her at 6 a.m. on Friday and told her they had a search warrant for the residence. ...Kristin Davis started her career working at a hedge fund. She claimed that by the end of her stint, she was senior vice president of operations for a $2 billion fund. ...In her time working in finance, she said she was asked to book escorts for her bosses. It was from here that she decided to set up her own agency.
According to the Washington Post: (08/10/2018) How an ex-madam, a political trickster and a toddler got tangled up in the Russia investigation
Davis and Stone have been friends since 2008. She says she met him when they appeared together on a radio show following her release from New York’s Rikers Island jail, where she’d served several months on a charge of promoting prostitution. Stone called her, she says, and declared: “You’re brilliant. Can we talk about what you’re going to do with your life?” Davis, a poised and articulate speaker who has touted her business acumen, had a compelling backstory, one with natural appeal to Stone, a bon vivant with a long-established reputation for taking delight in all things salacious who sometimes quips that he is “tri-sexual. I’ve tried everything.” ...In her late teens, she says, she was already working in the finance industry, eventually becoming a vice president at an East Coast hedge fund in her early 20s. She noticed how highflying finance types celebrated by hiring prostitutes. Sensing a business opportunity, she opened a high-end prostitution service in New York. ...Davis has claimed repeatedly that Eliot Spitzer, the former New York governor, was one of her frequent clients, using the code name “James” while he was serving as the state’s attorney general. She dedicated a full chapter in her book to those allegations. Spitzer has vigorously denied the claims. He declined to comment. Davis was arrested and sent to Rikers in 2008, the same year that Spitzer, who was never charged with a crime, resigned as governor after the New York Times reported that he’d patronized the Emperors Club VIP, another high-priced prostitution service.
That's all salacious enough, but even more pertinent to the point of this series of posts: back in 2010, The Atlantic reported: (10/13/2010) Meet the Leader of Eliot Spitzer's Smear Campaign
On Fox TV and at the New York Post, a peculiar detail is the subject of endless fascination: Did Eliot Spitzer, ex-governor of New York and newly minted CNN show host, really insist on wearing knee-high black socks during his encounters with high-priced escorts? A far more important question is this: Where did the story come from and why? The answer to that question is important because it reveals much about political bloodsport in this country and how the media are routinely manipulated by clever political operatives who are paid to attack their enemies by "leaking" damaging rumors in ways that quickly enter the mainstream media as fact. The tale of the Luv Gov's black socks was originally penned by Roger Stone, the amanuensis of the dark side and perhaps the Republican Party's best-dressed and most ruthless dirty trickster. He first introduced the hosiery motif in a letter he claims his lawyer -- Paul Rolf Jensen -- sent to the FBI, as a story heard, second-hand, from an off-work call girl at an "adult-themed club." (Don't you just love the detail?) Problem #1: The FBI never received the letter from Stone. Problem #2: Stone's letter -- dated prior to Spitzer's downfall -- only surfaced after Spitzer's downfall, leading some to wonder (because of problem #1 and because the address and the name of the agent/addressee were blacked out) if his letter had been back-dated to make it look as though he had sent it before the scandal. Problem #3: Mainstream media outlets all over the world -- including the NY Times and the Miami Herald -- give credence to the black socks story, even though it was based on a rumor or hallucination originated by Stone. Stone had a motive to plant the story because he had been paid to embarrass the governor. First, former NY State Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno hired Stone for $20,000/month to take on Spitzer. With Stone's help, Bruno turned everyone's attention away from his own corruption -- using state aircraft and vehicles to go on personal fund-raising trips -- and toward an attack on Spitzer for "spying" on Bruno. (The "spying" consisted of releasing public records of Bruno's state-paid travel.) In his enthusiasm to take on the Sheriff of Wall Street, Stone left an obscene message, which is included in my new film, Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer, on the voicemail of Spitzer's father. "The voice does sound eerily like me," a smiling Stone told me in an on-camera interview. But, even though the call originated from his phone number, Stone denies it actually was him, claiming a "rogue unit" of the NY State Police "under Spitzer's control" had pasted together recordings of his voice. (I recall wondering what tapes might have been used to put together phrases like "your phony, psycho, piece-of-shit son.") When Bruno was forced to fire Stone over the incident, Stone found other sponsors to pay him to stay on the Spitzer attack detail. According to Stone, his paymasters were "wealthy Republicans." Fortune's Peter Elkind, who contributed critical reporting to the film and is the author of the book Client 9, found evidence that Stone had bragged to a South Florida blogger that the "wealthy Republicans" -- called "The Group" -- were organized around a coordinating operative, Republican lobbyist Wayne Berman, and financiers including former AIG Chairman Hank Greenberg and Home Depot financier Ken Langone -- all major-league Spitzer haters. (Stone denies this.) Mysteriously, before anyone could even imagine Spitzer's spectacular fall, Stone was predicting it in cryptic emails and telegrams. "Eliot's going down," he told Rich Baum, the secretary to then Gov. Spitzer, in an email. While there is no doubt that Spitzer provided the weapon and the ammunition for his own political demise, did Stone play the role of the hit man? ...[T]he sexual hypocrisy of "family-values Republicans," as evidenced by Newt Gingrich, David Vitter (who ordered prostitutes during congressional roll call votes), John Ensign, Mark Sanford, Bob Livingston, etc., doesn't interest Stone for a simple reason: He is a paid political assassin who targets Democrats. ...So let's sum up: Stone helped take down Spitzer, contrived the black socks story to keep him in disgrace, hired an ex-madam to corroborate the story and then convinced newspapers and TV shows -- seduced by the fun of it all -- to act as confirming sources. And who is Roger Stone advising now? Carl Paladino, the Republican candidate for NY Governor, the would-be replacement for the man Stone takes credit for taking out. Kaching!
And despite all this, it might still be beside the point had Stone not been a constant and important presence in Trump's life right up to and through the 2016 presidential campaign. And once Stone was ousted, he was simply replaced by Stone's old business partner, Paul Manafort, who had an apartment in Trump Tower and would be accused by his own daughters of forcing their mother into non-consensual gangbangs. Unlike Pizzagate, which was baseless, we can see that highly influential people in Trump's sphere were repeatedly accused of the kinds of behavior that give plausibility to the claims of sex trafficking and blackmail.
In Part 2, I detailed a couple of conspiracy theory-like scandals in the 1980's that alleged links between the GOP and child sex trafficking. I won't reiterate them here, but my point wasn't to try to connect either Trump or Epstein to those particular conspiracies, rather to point out that at the time they were both coming up in the world, many of the people they were or would be surrounded by were implicated in these accusations. I also detailed early rape allegations against Trump, and his decision to focus on modeling agencies with less than sterling reputations. (The Guardian published "The Full List" on 6/24/2019) Trump has now famously said in 2002 that he'd known Epstein for "15 years", which places their friendship as starting around 1987. This means that Epstein's career skyrocketed from math teacher to partying with Donald Trump in about a decade. By 1992, Trump seems to have understood Epstein's tastes well enough that he knew what kinds of parties to throw for him: two guys who don't drink, and 28 very young women.
Just a few days ago, New York Magazine published this:
(07/11/19) Real Hedge-Fund Managers Have Some Thoughts on What Epstein Was Actually Doing
Epstein’s spotty professional history has also drawn a lot of attention in recent days, and Kass says it was one of the first things that raised his suspicions years ago. Now 66, Epstein didn’t come from money and never graduated from college, yet he landed a teaching job at a fancy private school (“unheard of,” says Kass) and rose through the ranks in the early 1980s at investment bank Bear Stearns. Within no time, Kass notes, Epstein was made a partner of the firm — and then was promptly and unceremoniously ousted. (Epstein reportedly left the firm following a minor securities violation.) Despite this “squishy work experience,” as Kass puts it, at some point after his quick exit, Epstein launched his own hedge fund, J. Epstein & Co., later renamed Financial Trust Co. Along the way, he began peddling the improbable narrative that he was so selective he would only work with billionaires. Oddly, Epstein also claimed to do all the investing by himself while his 150 employees all worked in the back office — which Kass says reminds him of Madoff’s cover story. Though it now appears that Epstein had many fewer employees than he claimed, according to the New York Times: Thomas Volscho, a sociology professor at the College of Staten Island who has been researching for a book on Mr. Epstein, recently obtained [a 2002 disclosure] form, which shows [Epstein’s] Financial Trust had $88 million in contributions from shareholders. In a court filing that year, Mr. Epstein said his firm had about 20 employees, far fewer than the 150 reported at the time by New York magazine. Given this puzzling set of data points, the hedge-fund managers we spoke to leaned toward the theory that Epstein was running a blackmail scheme under the cover of a hedge fund. How such a scheme could hypothetically work has been laid out in detail in a thread on the anonymous Twitter feed of @quantian1. It’s worth reading in its entirety, but in summary it is a rough blueprint for how a devious aspiring hedge-fund manager could blackmail rich people into investing with him without raising too many flags. Kass and former hedge-fund manager Whitney Tilson both emailed the thread around in investing circles and both quickly discovered that their colleagues found it quite convincing. “This actually sounds very plausible,” Tilson wrote in an email forwarding the thread to others. “He somehow cajoled these guys to invest,” says Kass, speaking of hypothetical blackmailed investors who gave Epstein their money to invest, but managed to keep their names private. The fact that Epstein’s fund is offshore in a tax haven — it is based in the U.S. Virgin Islands — and has a secret client list both add credence to the blackmail theory. So what did Epstein do with the money he did have under his management, setting aside the questions of how he got it and how much he had? One hedge-fund manager speculates that Epstein could have just put the client money in an S&P 500 index fund, perhaps with a tax dodge thrown in. “I put in $100 million, I get the S&P 500 minus some fees,” he says, speaking of a theoretical client’s experience. Over the past few decades, the client would have “made a shitload” — as would Epstein. A structure like that wouldn’t have required trading desks or analysts or complex regulatory disclosures. Kass has kicked around a similar idea: Maybe Epstein just put all the client money in U.S. treasuries — the simplest and safest investment there is, and the kind of thing one guy actually can do by himself. If the blackmail theory sounds far-fetched, it’s worth keeping in mind that it was also floated by one of Epstein’s victims, Virginia Roberts Giuffre. “Epstein … also got girls for Epstein’s friends and acquaintances. Epstein specifically told me that the reason for him doing this was so that they would ‘owe him,’ they would ‘be in his pocket,’ and he would ‘have something on them,’” she said in a court affidavit, according to the investigative series in the Miami Herald that brought the case back to the public’s attention late last year. In the 2015 filing, Giuffre claimed that Epstein “debriefed her” after she was forced into sexual encounters so that he could possess “intimate and potentially embarrassing information” to blackmail friends into parking their money with him. She also said photographic and video evidence existed — an assertion that looms especially large now that federal investigators have found a trove of images in Epstein’s home safe.
And The Miami Herald recently published this:
(07/14/2019) Epstein scandal explodes in Israel as ties to former prime minister under scrutiny
Jeffrey Epstein’s arrest is reverberating in Israel, where Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his right-wing Likud party are calling for a criminal probe into former prime minister Ehud Barak’s personal and business ties with the accused sex trafficker, Israeli media is reporting. Barak, 77, served as prime minister from 1999 to 2001. This month he formed a new party to run for prime minister against Netanyahu, who called for new elections in September. Once political allies, Barak and Netanyahu have been sparring on social media, with Netanyahu producing a video raising Barak’s relationship to the multimillionaire New York financier, and Ohio billionaire Les Wexner, who has given money to Barak, the Times of Israel reported.
In Part 3, I listed the numerous allegations against Trump and Epstein, many of which are well known by now but some of the lesser known ones -- like Trump's decision to put 13 year old Ivanka under the control of a modeling agency whose owner, John Casablancas, was known to rape his underage models -- may have been new to some people. Given Trump's long and uncomfortable track record of sexualizing Ivanka, and Casablancas' own record of sexualizing his underage daughter, the decision is deeply unsettling. That, plus the fact that Trump likely met Casablancas through Roy Cohn, and had known Epstein's madam, who had her own potential ties to various intelligence agencies, and you've got a weird web worth looking at. Conclusive? No, but hard to ignore.
The timing of the Wikileaks drop that released the Podesta emails which would be mangled to come up with fake codewords that formed the basis of the Pizzagate rumors is well known: the same day Trump's "grab 'em by the pussy" tape was made public. Among the many pieces of "evidence" used to discredit the Podestas was their weird art collections -- a strange detail that proved little, yet was repeated often, even while not one victim had made any kind of accusation. Additionally, the artist Marina Abramovic, would also be dragged into it, allegedly as a depraved cannibal. Nothing came of any of it, even while the right claimed it #confirmed the conspiracy. Meanwhile:
(07/11/2019) The Décor in Jeffrey Epstein’s NYC Townhouse Is the Stuff of Nightmares
The Times cites a lot of design nonsense in a recent piece about the townhouse, but the single piece of information that will go down in infamy is that Epstein possesses a mural depicting “a photorealistic prison scene that included barbed wire, corrections officers and a guard station, with Mr. Epstein portrayed in the middle.” He reportedly commissioned it a few years ago, and now it’s displayed somewhere on the second floor. R. Couri Hay, a public-relations specialist who visited Epstein’s home three months ago, told the Times he was invited for the express purpose of viewing the mural. “[Epstein] said, ‘That’s me, and I had this painted because there is always the possibility that could be me again,’” said Hay. This is likely a reference to the 18-month jail sentence Epstein served (but only 13 months of it) as part of a 2008 plea deal that allowed him to avoid federal charges and, potentially, a lifetime of imprisonment. Though Epstein was accused of molesting dozens of underage girls at his Palm Beach property, he was allowed to plead guilty to a mere two counts of soliciting prostitution from a minor. ...The home featured a “life-size female doll hanging from a chandelier.” ...A 2003 Vanity Fair piece on the townhouse described the entrance hall as decorated with “row upon row of individually framed eyeballs … imported from England.” ...According to one visitor who spoke to the Times, there’s a chessboard at the bottom of the staircase that is hair-raising in its commitment to creeping people the fuck out. Each of its customized figurines is modeled after one of his staffers and “dressed suggestively.” ...Vanity Fair’s 2003 report also contains a detail about a stuffed black poodle in Epstein’s study. It’s situated atop a grand piano and Epstein has reportedly pointed it out to visitors, telling them “No decorator would ever tell you to do that … But I want people to think what it means to stuff a dog.”
(07/09/2019) Jeffrey Epstein’s Latest Accuser Is an Artist Who Claims the Billionaire Sex Offender Lured Her in With Promises to Help Her Career
Among the latest accusations are those made by 49-year-old Maria Farmer, who, in an affidavit filed in April, claims that Epstein leveraged her dreams of becoming an artist to lure her into his web. She says that Epstein went on to sexually assault both her and her younger sister, who was 15 at the time.
I could go on, but my point is that, unlike Pizzagate (which, if Im going to make any accusations myself, looks convincingly to me like an attempt to get ahead of the real story through disinfo), there are real victims here. The claims of Epstein's involvement with intelligence agencies doesn't come from the back corners of the internet, but from the prosecutor of the case itself.
(07/10/2019) THE EPSTEIN SCANDAL IS GIVING QANON EVERYTHING PIZZAGATE COULDN’T
“The broadest grievances of the QAnon community revolve around corrupt elites who are untouched by the justice system, covered-up child abuse, and sex trafficking,” said Travis View, a researcher who hosts a podcast about QAnon. “Part of the promise of the QAnon is that these injustices will be corrected soon. You can see how the credible allegations and arrest of Jeffrey Epstein ticks all these boxes.” ...“The problem, which is typical of QAnon, is that they make outlandish claims that unnecessarily go beyond the evidence,” said View. “In the case of Epstein, they absurdly claim that Epstein Island contains secret underground tunnels in which children were abused and sacrificed. This is an echo of the satanic panic of the 80s, in which preschools were baselessly accused of containing tunnels used for hiding child abuse.” [Note: In Part 2 I mentioned The Franklin Coverup, which in my opinion managed to garble instances of actual child abuse with nonsense about satanic cults. QAnon also manages to make Epstein's actual child abuse seem outlandish and implausible.] ...In addition to the child sex trafficking conspiracy, QAnon posits that the Russia investigation was actually a front — and Trump and special counsel Robert Mueller are in cahoots to bring down the sex ring. Any day now, they believe, Mueller will unseal thousands of pending federal indictments against celebrities and high-ranking officials. QAnon began in October 2017 when “Q” (in reference to the highest government security clearance available) posted a cryptic message on 4chan, referencing equally cryptic remarks by Trump at a photo op with military personnel. At the appearance, the president warned about an impending “calm before the storm” — which has since become a slogan associated with Q. It’s often been described as a spinoff from the Pizzagate conspiracy, which posited that then-candidate Hillary Clinton and Democrat officials were running a child trafficking ring below the Comet Ping Pong pizza restaurant in D.C. The Pizzagate theory, which spread quickly via social media, inspired a man to drive six hours from North Carolina, armed with an AR-15, which he fired upon arrival. Nobody was hurt, but the incident was a tangible reminder that fake news and conspiracy theories can inspire real-world violence.
As my previous posts were blowing up, I mentioned that I intended at some point to make a post like this about Clinton's connection to all this. I have my own theories, but I think it's worth examining and I certainly hope that people smarter and more qualified than myself are looking into it. (I have included an edit in my repost of Part 3 that includes info on questions around Jane Doe's testimony as well as Ghislaine Maxwell's presence at Chelsea Clinton's wedding.) But there are so, so many connections between Trump and Epstein and various people accused of sexual blackmail going back decades that it's hard to ignore.
Additionally, Courthouse News reports:
(07/16/2019) Prosecution of Child-Sex Traffickers Plummeted Under Trump
For many victims, last week’s incarceration of sex offender Jeffrey Epstein represents belated justice after more than a decade of impunity and governmental complicity. Beneath that gloomy surface, however, an even darker picture emerges: federal prosecutions of those who trafficked children for sex dropped 26.7% over the last year. The startling numbers appeared Tuesday in a report from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University. “If the present pace of such prosecutions continues, the fiscal 2019 total will be 162, compared to 221 last year,” TRAC’s report states. The Obama administration dramatically ramped up such prosecutions, climbing threefold from 85 cases in 2009, the year the 44th president took office, to more than 260 during his final year in the White House. While those prosecutions held steady in the first year under President Donald Trump, TRAC’s analysis of Justice Department data says they have taken a dramatic plunge every year since. “Compared to five years ago, the estimate of FY 2019 prosecutions of this type is down 32.2 percent, from 239,” the study says. “However, prosecutions over the past year are still much higher than they were ten years ago, up 90.6 percent from the 85 reported in 2009.”
Meanwhile, the right is relying on stuff like this:
(07/09/19) Conspiracy Theorists Seem Perplexed by a Photo of Obama and Clooney. Here’s What It Shows
A common tactic among purveyors of misinformation is to hint at lurid or explosive claims by “just asking questions” about otherwise mundane pieces of evidence. Twitter user @WinstonConvefe employed this strategy in July 2019 in posting a photograph of President Obama and actor George Clooney on a boat with a purported child, along with a series of questions suggesting that something nefarious had just occurred
[Can you imagine Q's response if R Kelly had been arrested in a building owned by Clinton or Obama? EDIT: Or if Obama had moved dozens of migrant teenage girls near his private resort?]
EDIT 2: (07/16/2019) WAPO: Trump’s tweets are a distraction for something else he doesn't want us to see
While Trump was doubling down on his controversial tweets, Epstein was attending his bail hearing. At the hearing, prosecutors revealed that the contents of a locked safe in Epstein’s Manhattan mansion allegedly included diamonds, cash — and a bogus and outdated passport with Epstein’s photograph, a different name and an address in Saudi Arabia. Coincidence? Maybe. But, really? What’s clear is that Trump wants to distance himself from Epstein, whom he knew socially, as photos have captured . In one instance, they were reportedly the only two male guests at a party attended by a bevy of young women. That’s a pretty intimate bromance. It’s also clear that the very private Epstein has received very special treatment despite his illegal activities, including the 2007 non-prosecution agreement negotiated by outgoing labor secretary Alexander Acosta, who on Friday agreed to step down after reports detailed his role in the sweetheart deal when he was a U.S. attorney in Miami. The bogus passport opens a Pandora’s box of questions. Who knows what Epstein was up to? Who else might be implicated? All those diamonds and cash suggest that Epstein was prepared to leave suddenly. Who knows? Somebody. Maybe several somebodies. But 2020 is a long way off — and anyone who was ever connected to Epstein must be sweating grenades about now.
Right now I don't think we have a clear idea of who exactly is blackmailing who or why or for how long it may or may not have been going on, but we might have to re-evaluate what we think we know in order to actually make sense of it all.
I hope the links provided in this post meet the standards of this sub. [EDIT: It didn't.]
I don't know how we're supposed to proceed. We live in interesting times.

2019.07.15 15:18 bluplaydoh FYI: Mental Health Resources for Franklin County

I've noticed a lot of posts asking for resources/recommendations for mental health services. I wanted to create a post that anyone could refer to for answers. I also included a few other community resources that may help. This will be lengthy, so I apologize in advance. If anyone has specific questions that they do not want to ask on this public forum, please do not hesitate to DM me.

The Suicide Hotline: 614-221-5445
Teen Suicide Hotline: 614-294-3330
Sexual Assault Response Network: 614-267-7020
CHOICES (Eliminating Domestic Violence): 614-224-4663
Homeless Hotline: 614-274-7000
Street Card: http://www.columbushomeless.org/streetcard/
HandsOn (Community Resources): 2-1-1

Netcare - This is the 24-hour mental health and substance abuse crisis and assessment services for Franklin County, Ohio. For help, call 614-276-CARE (614- 276-2273). This service is to be used if you are in a crisis situation. You can also walk in for an assessment 199 S. Central Ave., Monday-Friday, 8am-3pm.

Mental Health America of Franklin County (614-221-1441) - They help with a few things, but do not have providers who see patients. Their services include:
Get Connected Program: If you need help getting linked with services, having an issue with the mental health services you're already receiving, assistance in navigating the mental health and substance use treatment system, education about patient and client rights within the state and local mental health treatment system and direct referral to the Legal Aid Society of Columbus to assist individuals with difficulties related to public benefits, housing, family/domestic conflict, financial issues, and other civil legal problems.

Pro Bono Counseling Program: The Pro Bono Counseling Program links volunteer mental health professionals with those who need but cannot afford mental health counseling. The program’s volunteers are licensed and insured mental health professionals who provide short-term counseling (12 sessions or less) at no cost to the recipient. Qualifications include, but not limited to: uninsured, underinsured (those with insurance, however mental health may not be covered, or deductible and/or co-pay is not affordable), unable to pay minimum sliding-fee scales, unemployed, residing in Franklin, Fairfield or Delaware counties in Ohio. To apply for the program, visit https://mhafc.org/get-help/pro-bono-counseling/

Support Groups: MHAFC sponsors groups designed to support people struggling directly with various mental health challenges, as well as groups for their families and loved ones. All groups are free of charge, and you do not need to register or anything to attend. If you see one you are interested in, you can just show up. They have groups for anxiety, depression, bipolar, maternal mental health (pregnant and postpartum women), OCD, schizophrenia, and one for families of people suffering with mental illness. For more information, including times and dates of when they are held, visit https://mhafc.org/get-help/support-groups/

POEM: This program is for pregnant or postpartum mothers for support. They have support groups and a support line you can call at 614-315-8989

Inpatient Care:
If you feel like you need to be seen on an inpatient level, you can go to any hospital ER to be triaged, but not all hospitals have Behavioral Health wards. Riverside and OSU provide some of the better care in my opinion, but you can also be seen at Mt. Carmel. There is also Twin Valley Behavioral Health (TVBH). Usually a referral has to be made by a mental health professional for admission. Columbus Springs has locations on the East side (2085 Citygate Drive Columbus, OH 43219 and in Dublin (7625 Hospital DriveDublin, OH 43016). Their phone number is 614-368-9854. There are so many others in the city (too many to list), but this is a good starting point. I would be happy to assist anyone if they want other options.

Outpatient/Community Care. If they are funded by the ADAMH Board , they will see you on a sliding scale fee based on income. Here is the complete list of agencies funded by ADAMH (https://adamhfranklin.org/find-help/our-network/). I will list some of the better known ones. Please note, that some wait lists are longer than usual due to the recent closure of Columbus Area:
North Central Mental Health Services: They do walk ins at 1301 N. High St. M-F, 8-4 to begin the admission process. If you don't have insurance, you will most likely be referred to their 40 Spruce St. location, where they see clients without insurance.

Concord Counseling Services: 614-882-9338, 700 Brooksedge Boulevard Westerville, Ohio 43081

Syntero: 614-889-5722, various locations. At last check, the wait list was 6+ months. But sometimes they do get cancellations and will be able to get you in within the week, so it would not hurt to check.

Southeast: 614-225-0990, 16 W. Long St.

North Community Counseling Centers: 614-261-3196, various locations

Applying for Medicaid and/or Food Stamps (SNAP, EBT)
I'm not going to pretend this is going to be a smooth process. But, you can start by filling out an application in one of the following ways:
-PHONE 1-844-640-6446
- VISIT BENEFITS.OHIO.GOV Note: Visit this link to apply for Medicaid, click “Check your eligibility” and follow the prompts.
-Any of the opportunity centers have computers available to apply online: East Opportunity Center 1055 Mt. Vernon Avenue Columbus, Ohio 43203 West Opportunity Center 314 North Wilson Road Columbus, Ohio 43204 Northland Opportunity Center 1721 Northland Park Avenue Columbus, Ohio 43229

Housing: There is no better way to put it - low income housing options are very shitty. The wait lists are lengthy, but if you are disabled, a veteran and/or homeless, you are prioritized (this just means you are on a list of a few thousand, rather than many thousand). You can apply for the wait list here:

Veterans: Franklin County Veterans Commission. They offer financial assistance and health care benefits, among a list of other resources.

Wolf 359

Reviews
Life's not easy for Doug Eiffel, the communications officer for the U.S.S. Hephaestus Research Station, currently on Day 448 of its orbit around red dwarf star Wolf 359. He's stuck on a scientific survey mission of indeterminate length, 7.8 light years from Earth. His only company on board the station are stern mission chief Minkowski, insane science officer Hilbert, and Hephaestus Station's sentient, often malfunctioning operating system Hera. He doesn't have much to do for his job other than monitoring static and intercepting the occasional decades-old radio broadcast from Earth, so he spends most of his time creating extensive audio logs about the ordinary, day-to-day happenings within the station. But the Hephaestus is an odd place, and life in extremely isolated, zero gravity conditions has a way of doing funny things to people's minds. Even the simplest of tasks can turn into a gargantuan struggle, and the most ordinary-seeming things have a way of turning into anything but that. Wolf 359 is a radio drama in the tradition of Golden Age of Radio shows. Take one part space-faring adventure, add one part character drama, and mix in one part absurdist sitcom, and you get Wolf 359. New episodes are released every two weeks.

We're Alive - A "Zombie" Story of Survival

Review
For Army Reserve Soldier Michael Cross, the world as he knew it ended in an instant. One minute, he's in college, and in the next, rioters are roaming the highway around him, breaking into cars, and literally tearing people apart. This is the day the dead walk. This is the world of We're Alive. We’re Alive is an ongoing series, packing performances and sound effects that rival movies and prove that modern audio drama is undead and well. Join our survivors as they band together, struggle to fortify a safe haven known as the Tower, and discovers that zombies are far from the worst thing in a post-apocalyptic Los Angeles where the rules of human decency no longer apply. We premiere 3 New episodes a month, with a week off between chapters. Little food. Little water. Little hope. Who is lucky enough to say "We're Alive?"
