#UPDATE: January 6, 2021:
To all of you who are sending me video clips this morning and asking "Is this your family?"...


To answer your questions...


* Yes... my relatives ARE on every news station in every country of the world today, yes they did ORGANIZE the attack on the Capitol Building... and I am horrified by it.


* No, before you guys sent me the video footage clips, I was unaware the attack had happened, I do not own a TV and do not seek out news reports on the internet, so had you not sent me those clips I would never have known the attack had happened at all


* Yes, many members of my extended-family were involved in organizing the attack on Washington D.C.; one of my aunts claims to be the organizer, she is now wanted by the FBI for questioning


* Yes, I can see 1 uncle, 2 aunts, and 23 1st cousins in those pictures and news reports.


* Yes, the shooter is the high priest cousin you saw posting gun photos and death threats on my FaceBook, Twitter, and Twitch chat


* Yes, that is the 2 cousins who founded the group "The Loyalist White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan More Loyal Than The Loyal White Knights", in the gif/memes trashing reporter cameras and jumping on said cameras 


* YES, that IS the uncle who was paying the Discord tittie streamer $500 a month to stage the "deserve to be raped raids" on my Twitch channel 


* Yes, that uncle, 2 aunts, and 23 cousins ARE all members of Heaven's Gate and were party to the original UFO cult kool-aid murder suicide that killed 39 people in 1997


* No, I do not support anything they do or have done; it's been more than 30 years since I last saw, talked to, or interacted with any of them


#And please, stop forwarding video footage and news reports to me. I want nothing to do with those jackasses. We share DNA, not ideologies. They absolutely disgust me.


* If you were there, please be aware that 4 of them are now bragging on their social medias that they currently have Covid-19 and that they were spitting on police and government officials during the attack on the Capitol Building; yes it is confirmed they DO actually have Covid-19... 9 members of their immediate family have died in the past month and is what instigated them to join the mob at D.C.


* Yes, all of them are wanted by the FBI... if you have any information about ANY of their crimes INCLUDING today's attack on Washington D.C., do NOT send it to me, send it to the FBI agent in charge of the case: 


#FBI Agent Andy Drewer out of the Portland, Maine FBI office is in charge of the investigation. If you have information about the case, give it to him not me. He can be reached @ +1-(207)-774-9322


This whole thing is very distressing for me. I do not like the kind of attention that gets put on ME because I happen to be related to THEM.

Far too many people harass my family, online and offline, because of these dipshits in our rather distant family tree.

I prefer to stay out of the public eye and deeply dislike being pulled into the paparazzi spotlight every time this group of lunatics pulls one of these ridiculous terrorist attack stunts.


It was very distressing for me to wake up this morning to find email, and every contact method on every social media, packs full of thousands of questions, links, and forwards, all asking me if that was my family that was being plastered across every news station on the planet.


It was bad enough to learn a terrorist attack had happened and it was even worse to learn it was yet again my uncles behind it.


Though I can not say I'm surprised to learn these jackass dipshits I have to share DNA with were involved. This certainly isn't the first terrorist attack they took part in.


Considering this 1 uncle, 2 aunts, & 23 cousins, all who took part in Heaven's Gate murder of 39 people in 1997, 1 of whom built the bomb for 2013's Boston Marathon, and 2 of whom founded the Loyalist White Knights... were involved in this attack too... I hope they get life in prison, they fucking deserve it.

.......

#UPDATE: January 9, 2020....


Good news, one of them was just arrested in Florida. He's the guy all over Twitter today, waving to security cameras while stealing Nancy Pelosi's lecture pedestal. My relatives are insane. I hope he never gets out.


At least he can't post death threats and rape threats in my Twitch chat anymore. I hope they arrest them all.


Why do I have to share DNA with these psychotic lunatics?


You can support your political party without being a violent, crazed, psychopathic terroist, you know.


#And random thought...


You know... all the people saying Trump supporters should stop inciting violence and go read their Bible, clearly have never read the Bible and have no clue how much violence and genocide God commands in the Old Testament... shouldn't it be the Trumpies need LESS Bible influence? Isn't it the Bible that inspired them to be violent in the first place?


And you want to know something else...


26 of those people now arrested for attacking the Capitol, had ALREADY been reported, in October 2019, for planning an attack on the government...

I know beause I filed that report on 3 uncles, 2 auns, and 23 cousins when they started building bombs and bought 4,000 asult rifles, while claiming they were building an army.

This attack was a long time in the planning and couldhave been prevented and the FBI knew about it 2 years ago.


But hey... guess what... the FBI knew about the Heaven's Gate murder 8 MONTHS before those same 26 people murdered 39 people under the shadow of Hale-Bop... AND the FBI knew in 2012, 5 months ahead of time that these same 26 people were building bombs for the Boston Marathon.


Same 26 people over and over again. This time some of them actually got caught... but the Heaven's Gate crew, has 4,000 members in Maine, Florida, Mississippi, Wyomin, Colorado, and Nova Scotia.


They are gaining members all the time. They claim they are building God's army, they claim Trump is "the God-King" God's form on earth, they also believe he is a shapeshifting reptilian alien, and they claim to be waiting for a mothership that will fly in the shadow of Comet Wormwood.


They claim "when the Trump of jubilie sounds" they will be ready to kill all who oppose them, because they believe they are God's Army and they do not fear death, for they also believe that through death, they "will be changed in the twinkling of an eye" and transformed into mighty arch angels to enact vengange of all who oppose them.


They embrace death, to the point, like they did in 1997, they will kill themselves if they have to, and take everyone around them with them.


Heaven's Gate should be feared and they should be in prison, not building gallows on the front law of the Capitaol building while trying to hang the Vice President.


How many decades will Heaven's Gate's members be allowed to kill and main unbridled? They are terrorists and NEED to be arrested and put in prison, BEFORE they do what they are planning and unleash a bomb that will kill every one "East of the Mississippi" as they put it.


My uncle David is dangerous, and now with his brother Bruce, leader of Heaven's Gate since 1997, dead from Covid19, David's crew has become far more dangerous than they ever were.


This attack they staged on the Capitol, it's not the end, it was just them firing a warning shot of something far bigger yet to come.


They need to be stopped BEFORE they kill more people.


How many times will this same group be allowed to kill over and over again, before someone stops them?


.......


1 uncle, 2 aunts, & 23 cousins were there; they are the leaders of Heaven's Gate AND the Loyalist White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan; they have 4,000 members armed with assault rifles, ready to march on command, and that's JUST the group in Palmyra, Maine - they NEED to be stopped... this post they made on Twitter is NOT a joke... they WILL march Jan 19... they MUST be stopped... Jan 6 was just a warning shot

UPDATE: January 14, 2021
I received a deeply troubling question today... let's answer it...

I received a deeply troubling question today... let's answer it...


................


*if someone asks me to do something in exchange for a donation...? I stream, and today someone I've never seen before sent me a message on discord asking me if I want [insert ridiculous amount of money here]. I of course replied asking what for, and the guy replies saying 'complete 25 challenges, for example #1 would be pulling a funny face. If you complete all 25 challenges then I donate the money.' Oh, and he also sent me screenshots of what I assume is supposed to be proof that he's dono'd tons of money to others before. This seems sus AF to me. Should I just assume it's fake / he'll ask me to do something weird? What do?*


................


You've heard of the recent attacks on the American Capitol, right?

Have you NOT also heard about the 26 Twitch streamers who have found their name's on the FBI's no fly list even though they live in Europe and have never been to America?

Have you looked at today's day January 14 vs the date of the next 2 planned attacks, January 17 and January 20?

I doubt you'd ask this question if you HAD heard of what happened, so let me me summarize:

A group of terrorists spent several months planning an attack on Washington D.C. They took to intermingling with election rallies, so no one would suspect them. 

Meanwhile, online, they sought out a way to make 26 fake IDs for their group to use on attack day (January 6).

They ended up contacting 26 Twitch streamers the genders and approximate ages of the 26 people they had in their group going to D.C. 

Each streamer was sent an offer for being donated $500 in exchange for doing things. The streamers thought it seemed innocent enough and was easy money, so did it.

The reason for the $500 amount, was PayPal requires additional verification on large amounts, meaning, they were given the REAL NAMES AND HOME ADDRESSES of those 26 streamers. They next took those names and made 26 fake IDs using the names and addresses of those 26 streamers.

They used those fake IDs January 6 at D.C. and now as of Jan 7, those 26 streamers found their names on the FBI's no-fly list.

Those 26 terrorists, tossed the fake IDs and used their real IDs to leave D.C. and made their way back to Florida, Mississippi, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine, successfully returning home, while hundreds of other rally attendants found themselves unable to get on planes.

Given what those 26 did just before Jan 6, I would question anyone asking something similar to any streamer, right now, this close to Jan 17.

I highly recommend you report them to the FBI as possibly connected to the Jan 17 attack. **[https://tips.fbi.gov/](https://tips.fbi.gov/)**

The 26 people in question by the way... my uncle David, his wife Luci, his sister Barbie Jean, and 23 of their children, grandchildren, and great grand children... only one of whom so far has been arrested... the one who stole Nancy Pelosi's pulpit. On their way home to Palmyra, the rest showed up in my driveway January 11, to chant "All hail God King Trump" while bragging how they didn't get caught and outwitted the FBI and are going back to D.C. on Jan 17 and Jan 20.

Chances are VERY HIGH that the man contacting you was David's son Shem, who is the one who contacted the others prior to the Jan 6 attack, or so he bragged on Jan 11, while shooting off his rifils in my driveway, from a red 1980s vintage Jeep Cherokee.

Beware of the Atwaters, the Halls, the Cyrs, and the Johnsons... they ain't sending you money unless they are planning on using you to take the fall for some crime they plan to commit and blame on you. You'll go to jail and they'll walk free, like they always do, like they've been doing since the 1950s.

..UPDATE: January 14, 2021...
..............................
...MODS TAKE NOTICE!...
.................................
...NEW BAN RULES ADDED TO THE CHANNEL... ..............................
...From today forward ALL USERNAMES ending in "Chan" are to be banned on sight...
..............................
...I do not want any member of the 4Chan, 7Chan, Anon, QAnon or any similar terrorist organizations near my channel...
.............................. 
...BAN THEM ALL!...

#As of this discovery a new policy is now in place on my channel.. all mods are to **IMMEDIATELY BAN** anyone and everyone they see with the word "Chan" at the end of their name, wither that user has ever visited my channel or not.

I want my mods to take ANY user they see on ANY channel ANYWHERE on Twitch to just ban those usernames from my channel as soon as they see them.

#From today forwards ALL USERNAMES ending in "Chan" are to be banned on sight.

#I do not want any member of this terrorist organization near my channel.

#The Chans are horrible people and I want nothing to do with any of them.

#Anyone found to be a supporter of ANY Chan is to be banned from my channel, even if they do not have "Chan" at the end of their username.

The "Chan" movement... OMG! They are fucking psychotic extremists. I had no clue what "Chan" meant or why people put it at the end of their username. Knowing what I know now and looking at the fact that the ringleader behind the 3 year long attack on my Twitch channel has the word "Chan" at the end of her username, the wild sex rumors she spreads about me FINALLY make sense.

Today one of my mods sent me the following message:

*"I noticed the girl trying to cancel you has "Chan" at the end of her username, as do many of her followers. I also noticed your confusion over her attacks and I wonder, do you know what "chan" means or why streamers put it at the end of their username? Everyone who has "Chan" at the end of their username is a witch hunting channel, it is how they identify themselves. It means they are extremist radical trolls from 4chan. There is even a wiki devoted to the "Chan Movement". Here, you'll want to read this. **[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4chan](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4chan)** and this **[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Chanology](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Chanology)**Twitter has started to ban anyone using "chan" at the end of their username because is identifies the user as connected with white supremacy hate groups. She's a QAnon terrorist and proud of it, that's why she has "chan" at the end of her name. That's why she is working with your uncles. She helped them plan the attack on the Capitol. She's a QAnon member. That's why she has the word "chan" at the end of her username. Every QAnon member does that. I didn't realize you had never heard of QAnon or 4Chan until I saw your Tweet last night. I'm s sorry. I thought you knew that is what she was. I would have messaged you sooner about this if I had known you didn't know what QAnon was. Also "Thingy" is a slang word, it means "a child's vagina" people put that in their username to signify they are supporters of child rape. These are really bad people attacking your channel. They are the same people who just attacked America's Capital. When they are chanting "ThingyChan" in your chat, it's a QAnon secret code word, it's another word for rape, it's a rape threat, it's them bypassing the NightBot ban of the word rape. It means they are threatening to gather up 4Chan members to rape you. 4Chan QAnon's use secret code words to bypass chat bans because they know most people don't know what the code words mean. It's like a Morse Code that only they know."*


Here is what the Wiki has to say:

>>>>*"4chan is an anonymous English-language imageboard website. Launched by Christopher "moot" Poole in October 2003, the site hosts boards dedicated to a wide variety of topics, from anime and manga to video games, music, literature, fitness, politics, and sports, among others. Registration is not available and users typically post anonymously; posting is ephemeral, as threads receiving recent replies are "bumped" to the top of their respective board and old threads are deleted as new ones are created. As of November 2020, 4chan receives more than 20 million unique monthly visitors, with more than 900,000 posts made daily."*

.

.

>>>>*"The site has been described as a hub of Internet subculture, with its community being influential in the formation of prominent Internet memes, such as lolcats, Rickrolling, and rage comics, as well as hacktivist and political movements, such as Anonymous and the alt-right. 4chan has often been the subject of media attention as a source of controversies, including the coordination of pranks and harassment against websites and Internet users, and the posting of illegal and offensive content. The Guardian once summarized the 4chan community as "lunatic, juvenile ... brilliant, ridiculous and alarming""*

.

.

>>>>*"Before the end of 2003, several new anime-related boards were added, including /h/ (Hentai), /c/ (Anime/Cute), /d/ (Hentai/Alternative), /w/ (Wallpapers/Anime), /y/ (Yaoi), and /a/ (Anime). Additionally, a lolicon board was created at /l/ (Lolikon),[26] but was disabled following the posting of genuine child pornography and ultimately deleted in October 2004, after threats of legal action."*

.

.

>>>>*"On November 17, 2018, it was announced that the site would be split into two, with the work-safe boards moved to a new domain, 4channel.org, while the NSFW boards would remain on the 4chan.org domain. In a series of posts on the topic, Nishimura explained that the split was due to 4chan being blacklisted by most advertising companies, and that the new 4channel domain would allow for the site to receive advertisements by mainstream ad providers."*

.

.

>>>>*"/pol/ ("Politically Incorrect") is 4chan's political discussion board. A stickied thread on its front page states that the board's intended purpose is "discussion of news, world events, political issues, and other related topics." /pol/ was created in October 2011 as a rebranding of 4chan's news board, /new/, which was deleted that January for a high volume of racist discussion."*

.

.

>>>>*"Although there had previously been a strong left-libertarian contingent to 4chan activists, there was a gradual rightward turn on 4chan's politics board in the early-mid 2010s. The board quickly attracted posters with a political persuasion that later would be described with a new term, the alt-right. Media sources have characterized /pol/ as predominantly racist and sexist, with many of its posts taking an explicitly neo-Nazi bent. The Southern Poverty Law Center regards /pol/'s rhetorical style as widely emulated by white supremacist websites such as The Daily Stormer; the Stormer's editor, Andrew Anglin, concurred. /pol/ was where screenshots of Trayvon Martin's hacked social media accounts were initially posted. The board's users have started antifeminist, homophobic, transphobic, and anti-Arab Twitter campaigns."*

.

.

>>>>*"The users of /r9k/ built upon by then popular 4chan memes "epic win" and "fail" to group the human population into "alphas" or stereotypical well-adjusted popular people and "betas" or stereotypical geek-ish social rejects, self-identifying with the latter. It became a popular gathering place for the controversial online incel community. The "beta uprising" or "beta rebellion" meme, the idea of taking revenge against women, jocks and others perceived as the cause of incels' problems, was popularized on the sub-section. It gained more traction on the forum following the Umpqua Community College shooting, where it is believed that the shooter, Chris Harper-Mercer, also warned people not to go to school in the Northwest hours prior to the shooting as users encouraged him. The perpetrator of the Toronto van attack referenced 4chan and an incel rebellion in a Facebook post he made prior to the attack while praising self-identified incel Elliot Rodger, the killer behind the 2014 Isla Vista killings. He claims to have talked with both Harper-Mercer and Rodger on Reddit and 4chan and believes that he was part of a "beta uprising", also posting a message on 4chan about his intention the day before his attack."*

.

.

>>>>*"Anonymous originated in 2003 on the imageboard 4chan representing the concept of many online and offline community users simultaneously existing as an anarchic, digitized global brain. Anonymous members (known as Anons or QAnons) can be distinguished in public by the wearing of Guy Fawkes masks in the style portrayed in the graphic novel and film V for Vendetta. However, this may not always be the case as some of the collective prefer to instead cover their face without using the well-known mask as a disguise. Some anons also opt to mask their voices through voice changers or text-to-speech programs."*

.

.

>>>>*"On January 19, 2012, the U.S. Department of Justice shut down the file-sharing site Megaupload on allegations of copyright infringement. Anons responded with a wave of DDoS attacks on U.S. government and copyright organizations, shutting down the sites for the RIAA, MPAA, Broadcast Music, Inc., and the FBI."*

.

.

>>>>*"In the wake of the fatal police shooting of unarmed African-American Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, "Operation Ferguson"—a hacktivist organization that claimed to be associated with Anonymous—organized cyberprotests against police, setting up a website and a Twitter account to do so. The group promised that if any protesters were harassed or harmed, they would attack the city's servers and computers, taking them offline. City officials said that e-mail systems were targeted and phones died, while the Internet crashed at the City Hall."*

.

.

>>>>*"In March 2016, Anonymous was reported to have declared war on Donald Trump. However, the "Anonymous Official" YouTube channel released a video denouncing #OpTrump as an operation that "goes against everything Anonymous stands for" in reference to censorship and added "we are for everyone letting their voices be heard, even, if the person at hand ... is a monster.""*

.

.

>>>>*"In late 2017, QAnon, a pro-Trump group claiming to be the "real" Anonymous, first emerged on 4chan. In response, anti-Trump members of Anonymous warned that QAnon was stealing the collective's branding."*

.

.

>>>>*"Since 2009, dozens of people have been arrested for involvement in Anonymous cyberattacks, in countries including the U.S., UK, Australia, the Netherlands, Spain, and Turkey. Anons generally protest these prosecutions and describe these individuals as martyrs to the movement. The July 2011 arrest of LulzSec member Topiary became a particular rallying point, leading to a widespread "Free Topiary" movement."*

.

.

>>>>*"QAnon is a disproven and discredited far-right conspiracy theory alleging that a cabal of Satan-worshipping cannibalistic pedophiles is running a global child sex-trafficking ring and plotting against U.S. president Donald Trump, who is fighting the cabal. QAnon also commonly asserts that Trump is planning a day of reckoning known as the "Storm", when thousands of members of the cabal will be arrested. The conspiracy claim is entirely fictitious. QAnon supporters have accused many liberal Hollywood actors, Democratic politicians, and high-ranking government officials of being members of the cabal. They have also claimed that Trump feigned conspiracy with Russians to enlist Robert Mueller to join him in exposing the sex trafficking ring and preventing a coup d'état by Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and George Soros. The QAnon conspiracy theories have been amplified by Russian state-backed troll accounts on social media, as well as Russian state-backed traditional media."*

.

.

>>>>*"Although preceded by similar viral conspiracy theories such as Pizzagate,[23][24] which has since become part of QAnon, the conspiracy theory began with an October 2017 post on the anonymous imageboard 4chan by "Q", who was presumably an American individual;[25] it is now more likely that "Q" has become a group of people acting under the same name. A stylometric analysis of Q posts claims to have uncovered that at least two people wrote as "Q" in different periods. Q claimed to be a high-level government official with Q clearance, who has access to classified information involving the Trump administration and its opponents in the United States. NBC News reported that three people took the original Q post and spread it across multiple media platforms to build an Internet following for profit. QAnon was preceded by several similar anonymous 4chan posters, such as FBIAnon, HLIAnon (High-Level Insider), CIAAnon, and WH Insider Anon. Although American in origin, there is now a considerable QAnon movement outside of the United States, particularly in Europe."*

.

.

>>>>*"QAnon adherents began appearing at Trump reelection campaign rallies in August 2018. Bill Mitchell, a broadcaster who has promoted QAnon, attended a White House "social media summit" in July 2019. QAnon believers commonly tag their social media posts with the hashtag #WWG1WGA, signifying the motto "Where We Go One, We Go All". At an August 2019 rally, a man warming up the crowd used the QAnon motto, later denying that it was a QAnon reference. This occurred hours after the FBI published a report calling QAnon a potential source of domestic terrorism—the first time the agency had so rated a fringe conspiracy theory. According to analysis by Media Matters for America, as of October 2020, Trump had amplified QAnon messaging at least 265 times by retweeting or mentioning 152 Twitter accounts affiliated with QAnon, sometimes multiple times a day. QAnon followers came to refer to Trump as "Q+""*

.

.

>>>>*"The number of QAnon adherents is unclear as of October 2020, but the group maintains a large online following. In June 2020, Q exhorted followers to take a "digital soldiers oath", and many did, using the Twitter hashtag #TakeTheOath.[42] In July 2020, Twitter banned thousands of QAnon-affiliated accounts and changed its algorithms to reduce the conspiracy theory's spread.[43] A Facebook internal analysis reported in August found millions of followers across thousands of groups and pages; Facebook acted later that month to remove and restrict QAnon activity,[44][45] and in October it said it would ban the conspiracy theory from its platform altogether. Followers had also migrated to dedicated message boards such as EndChan and 8chan (now rebranded as "8kun"), where they organized to wage information warfare in an attempt to influence the 2020 United States presidential election.[47] Following Trump's loss to Joe Biden in the election, QAnon beliefs became a part of attempts to overturn the results and Trump's loss, culminating in the storming of the United States Capitol, leading to a further crackdown on QAnon-affiliated content on social media."*

.

.


>>>>*"Anonymous is a decentralized international activist/hacktivist collective/movement that is widely known for its various cyber attacks against several governments, government institutions and government agencies, corporations, and the Church of Scientology."*

.

.

>>>>*"Project Chanology (also called Operation Chanology) was a protest movement against the practices of the Church of Scientology by members of Anonymous, a leaderless Internet-based group. The project was started in response to the Church of Scientology's attempts to remove material from a highly publicized interview with Scientologist Tom Cruise from the Internet in January 2008."*

.

.

>>>>*"The project was publicly launched in the form of a video posted to YouTube, "Message to Scientology", on January 21, 2008. The video states that Anonymous views Scientology's actions as Internet censorship, and asserts the group's intent to "expel the church from the Internet". This was followed by distributed denial-of-service attacks (DDoS), and soon after, black faxes, prank calls, and other measures intended to disrupt the Church of Scientology's operations. In February 2008, the focus of the protest shifted to legal methods, including nonviolent protests and an attempt to get the Internal Revenue Service to investigate the Church of Scientology's tax-exempt status in the United States."*

.

.

>>>>*"Reactions from the Church of Scientology regarding the protesters' actions have varied. Initially, one spokesperson stated that members of the group "have got some wrong information" about Scientology. Another referred to the group as a group of "computer geeks". Later, the Church of Scientology started referring to Anonymous as "cyberterrorists" perpetrating "religious hate crimes" against the church."*

.

.

>>>>*"Members of Project Chanology say their main goal is "to enlighten the Church of Scientology (CoS) by any means necessary.""*

.

.

>>>>*"Project Chanology began its campaign by organizing and delivering a series of denial-of-service attacks against Scientology websites and flooding Scientology centers with prank calls and black faxes. The group was successful in taking down local and global Scientology websites intermittently from January 18, 2008 until at least January 25, 2008."*

Guy Fawkes was an English Catholic executed for a 1605 attempt to destroy the House of Lords. In V for Vendetta, a rebel against a near-future fascist regime uses the mask in his public appearances and distributes many of its copies to the population to enable mass protests."*

In response, Turner sued 4chan, 7chan, and other websites; however, he lost his plea for an injunction and failed to receive letters from the court."*

Miang claimed that the report "seems to confuse /b/ raids and motivational poster templates with a genuine threat to the American public", arguing that the "unrelated" footage of a van exploding shown in the report was to "equate anonymous posting with domestic terror"."*

The suspect, 33-year-old David Michael Kalac, surrendered to police in Oregon later the same day; he was charged with second-degree murder involving domestic violence. Kalac was convicted in April 2017 and was sentenced to 82 years in prison the following month."*

The photos were widely shared on Instagram and other sites, particularly on 4chan where many users mocked and celebrated her death, saying she deserved it and praising the killer while depicting Devins as a manipulative young woman.

Those are just a few highlights of what the Wiki has to say about the Chan Movement and why so many users on Twitch and Twitter tac the word "chan" to the end of their username.

#Anyone found to be a supporter of ANY Chan is to be banned from my channel, even if they do not have "Chan" at the end of their username.


On a side note... do you remember in June 2016 when a group of crazy protestors showed up in my driveway chanting that my family was "Satan worshiping pedophile cannibals of the Scottish Mafia"? Well, it says on that Wiki:


>>>>*"QAnon is a disproven and discredited far-right conspiracy theory alleging that a cabal of Satan-worshipping cannibalistic pedophiles is running a global child sex-trafficking ring and plotting against U.S. president Donald Trump, who is fighting the cabal."*

.

.


Does that me those people in my driveway that day were QAnon members?


Scary... that group included 2 Mormon Bishops, the Old Orchard Beach Town Manager, several motel owners from Old Orchard Beach, an excavation owner in Old Orchard Beach, and 2 Old Orchard Beach Town councillors... uhm... does that mean Old Orchard Beach is infested with QAnon members?


I think I am finally starting to understand the weird accusations that get tossed at me and my family... like being called "Scottish Mafia" when we are not, and being called a "BDSM Dominatrix" when I am not, and being called a "Satan Worshiper" when I am not, or being called "pedophiles' or "cannibals" when we are not.


I never understood these accusations or what the possible source could have been, but I had never heard of QAnon until 2 days ago when Twitter announced they banned 70,000 QAnon members off Twitter, following the terrorist attack in Washington D.C. earlier this week. 


The Tweet my mod was referencing, was a Tweet where I asked "What is QAnon? I never heard of it before."


Okay, so now understand WHERE they got the accusations from, they apparently say those things about everyone. But the question still stands: Why me? Why my family? Why my Twitch channel? How did I become a target for members of such bizarre, psychotically deraged terroist group? 


Also... it says QAnon started in October 2017... but those people who were in my yard, the first time they showed up was April 10, 2015, and they arrived again May 14, 2015, June 12, 2015, September 12, 2015, and each time they showed up the group was bigger. They continued to show up throughout 2016.


Each group was lead by a masked man who always kept his face hidden. The group members called him "Mark" and "Mark Who Needs No Last Name"... he was a tiny elderly man about 5'9" very skinny, and had unkept white hair. He always arrived driving a backhoe, which is the same backhoe that drove over my house August 8, 2013. He was the one seen shooting at me and my family in several livestreams. He was prone to showing up while I was livestreaming... I think he used my livestream schedual to determine if I was home, and I also think he was trying to "get his 15 minutes of fame" because he was always trying to get himself and his rifales on my webcams.


All of it was recorded via those livestreams *(yes, this is why several Witcher 3 VODs are not available for you to watch... it's the ones with the terrorist attacks on my family in them.)*, and all the video footage forwarded to local police, who in turn forwarded it to the FBI, and the FBI assigned Agent Andy Drewer to the case June 26, 2016.


All of that was a full 2 years before the October 2017 date in that article.



As of this discovery a new policy is now in place on my channel.. all mods are to **IMMEDIATLY BAN** any one and everyone they see with the word "Chan" at the end of their name, wither that user has ever visited my channel or not.

#UPDATED to answer this question:

......................

*How is it you have never heard of 4chan or QAnon? I thought you were a dark webber? Everyone always talks about how you know all the darkest deepest sites on the internet. 4chan is like the biggest dark web website ever.*

......................

Uhm... WHO exactly says I know dark web websites and what exactly is a dark webber?

I've been on the internet since 1996, but I build websites, I don't visit websites. In my 25 years on the internet I've probably visited fewer than 100 websites total, if that many. In fact, I can list off the top of my head websites I visit and use:

* Amazon

* Blogger/BlogSpot (as a blog writer, I don't read blogs by others)

* Deviantart (as a blog writer, I don't read/view content by others)

* eBay

* FaceBook

* FanFiction.Net (not visited since 2011)

* LinkedIn (as a blog writer, I don't read blogs by others)

* LiveJournal (as a blog writer, I don't read blogs by others)

* MySpace

* Nexus

* Pinterest


* SoapBox

* Squidoo (ceased to exist 2013)

* Twitch

* Twitter

* WordPress (as a blog writer, I don't read blogs by others)

* YouTube

* Zazzle

Wow... not only didn't reach 100, I didn't even reach 20.

I find it rather laughable that you or ANY ONE would think of me as someone who knows "dark web" web sites.

When exactly do you think I have time to browse the internet to even look for any website at all?

I work 80 to 120 hour weeks. 

I publish 4 novels a year, dozens of short stories a month, 2 to 3 non-fiction articles every day, paint on canvas with acrylic art for **[new merch products](https://www.zazzle.com/store/eelkat)** weekly, write for 12 blogs, and a manage/edit/write for 200 websites **[like this one](https://www.eelkat.com/)** which I built from the ground up and am the ONLY person managing/editing/writing for... AND I'm a retail merchandiser for HallMark travelling hundreds of miles a week to set up displays at WalMarts, CVS, Post Offices, WalGreens, and Khols all over New England. On top of all of that I make YouTube videos AND stream on Twitch.

So, explain to me WHEN you think it is that I have any free time for browsing the internet? 

I don't know who told you I was a "dark webber" or that I would know anything about "dark web" web sites, but, honey... check their username... did it say "Chan" at the end of their name? Yeah... THEY are a "dark webber" who visits "dark web" websites, not me, as can be clearly seen by them putting "Chan" at the end of their username.

You might want to reconsider where you get your information about me, who you get your information about me from, and fact check the source of the information you get about me.



If you could recommend I watch one VOD that best represented your channel, which would it be?

A Look At The Ernest Hemingway Style of Writing




Ads by Share-a-Sale

>>also another fact: i am a teenager. yes, yes i am aware of the stigma that surrounds being a teen writer and i know many of you will look and talk down to me because of my age (im used to it). but just know that i am aware that as a writer, i have much to learn about life and about the craft before publishing...anyways, i decided to include this bit of information about myself because i think it could affect your responses. will i become a 'deeper' writer when i experience more hardships in life?

Ah... I'm now reading the comments and see the shitty comment you are replying to. Ignore them.

I published my first novel as a pre-teen, then several more while I was a teen; if any one talks down to you or says you can't write/publish because of your age, tell them to fuck off and then go right back to your writing. Never let someone else's perception about age, affect your goal to write.

>>i can't write 'deep' or overly descriptive stuff

>>my writing is simple and light. none of my stories or novels hold any deeper messages or meanings. my writing is also straight to the point... I'm not a fan of flowery descriptions and metaphors

>>i find myself comparing my simple written stories to the complex and deep ones that my writer friends create. i know this is bad, but i cant help it. i feel inadequate next to them.

If you are aiming to publish, you might find it difficult to attract a publisher. For some reason deep meanings, hidden messages, flowery descriptions, and metaphors do seem to be what they look for. I don't write those things myself, so, I end up self-pubbing a lot of my work.

My books are 75% to 90% dialogue, with descriptions mostly limited to one or two sentences at the beginning of each chapter.

I use very simple language (I ran it through one of those reading level graders, and they come back as 5th grade vocabulary reading level).

I never use a thesaurus to look for "better" words. I let my characters talk in bad grammar, double negatives, fragments, and run-ons.

I also let my characters say things like "ain't" and "thems there".

I don't use dialogue tags (he said, she replied, etc). The start of the conversation says who each character is, then it's 20 or 30 pages of dialogue before you see another "said" tag.

But then I write genre fiction, High Fantasy specifically. OMG! Try publishing High Fantasy that is anything less the 80% flowery prose, let alone is 90% dialogue with no said tags. Good god, the notes that get scrawled on the rejection slips!

Most publishers describe my work as "too literary" for their tastes. They've also used the terms "avant garde" and "artsy-fartsy". All LOT have said "not mainestream enough" and "too experimental" and "too much dialogue" and "not enough description" and "reads like a stage play not a novel".

sigh

The problem?

I like reading very stripped down, bare bones stories. I have a very hard time finding that style published, so I write what I want to read. Unfortunately, the reason there's not a lot of it out there is because it's not what publishers want to publish. Well, you know what? I don't care what publishers want to publish, I care about trying to find books I actually want to read, and if that means I have to write the books myself, well so be it.

The most common complaint I get is "this reads like something Ernest Hemingway wrote", which on one hand could seem like a compliment, him being a famous author and all, but it's always followed by a rant on how "he was a terrible writer, why anyone would want to emulate his style is beyond me". 

Once it was followed by a rant that said "you men are all alike! all write anti-feminist crap idolizing Ernest Hemingway" 

... uhm...

... okay, except I'm a woman, not a man, and I've never read Hemingway so I have no clue what his work or style is even like...and how is my work anti-feminist again? What? I think that was an editor having a bad day and lashing out at the next author they ran across. To this day, I've no clue how that editor translated my book as either anti-feminist or idolizing Hemingway or why she thought an author whose first name is "Wendy-Christine" was a man.

(TIP: if any acquiring editors are reading this: don't scrawl shitty, outbursts of rage over your own bad day in the margins of rejection slips; it's not constructive criticism, it leaves the author scratching they head going "What the hell are they talking about?", and it's also very unprofessional.)

Well, one things for sure: my work definitely rubs editors the wrong way! LOL!

But you want to know what the #1 reason I get for rejections of my books:

  • "we can not accept books featuring transvestite characters."

Yep. That's it.

The Quaraun series has gotten tons of glowing "I love it! But we can't accept books featuring transvestite characters" rejections.

Editors are constantly beaming with excitement over:

  • "well crafted characters"
  • "engaging storyline"
  • "held my interest to the end"
  • "I couldn't put it down"

followed by:

  • "but he's wearing a dress"
  • "you gotta rewrite it so he's not a transvestite"
  • "no one wants to read about the every day life of a transexual; they only sell in Erotica"
  • "you can't have a trans character in any genre but Erotica"
  • "transvestites are too controversial"

Americans scream and beg and demand diverse books, but when faced with actual diversity they run away screaming they don't want it.

No. No, my main character is a transvestite and I will not rewrite him to be otherwise.

But then there is that pesky problem of writing a series that crosses genres and is Slice of Life Literary in a Fantasy setting, with Fantasy races and Fantasy themes. And remember too that I've NEVER submitted these books to a publisher of Fantasy, and have only ever submitted these books to publishers of Literary Fiction.

Interestingly, one editor asked once: "Do you even read Fantasy?"

Uhm, yeah, about that...

...nope.

I've never once read a Fantasy novel in my entire life. Though I have read the Lythande short story series (about a transgender wandering vagabond wizard) and I fell in love with it and my work was heavily influenced by it (easy to notice if you know the Lythande series, then realize my Quaraun series is ALSO about a transgender wandering vagabond wizard).

The Quaraun series fanfics the hell out of Lythande, literally taking every Lythande story and totally re-writing it, then running rampant with "What if...?"

I never set out to write Fantasy. I set out to write a continuation of Lythande, so I write my own works in the same haphazard, disjointed, bad grammar, lots of dialogue, slice of life, mish mash style the Lythande stories were written in.

Because I loved Marion Zimmer Bradley's, writing style in Lythande stories, so much I actually make it a writing habit to once a year, manually hand write, copy, word for word, the Lythande stories just so I can teach myself to write in this psychobilly off the wall style the Lythande stories were written in.  And I know the entire writing community laughs at Lythande calling it one of the worse written pieces of crap of all time, but that doesn't change the fact, it's still my favorite book and the Quaraun series is fanfiction of it.

If you don't know it, Lythande is an insanely overpowered wizard. The only female of a male sect of wizards, she has to hide her gender and live as a man, risk being executed if her sect finds out she's a female. The series is over the top mega sexualized Yuri (lesbian erotica), with the base story being that Lythande is the most beautiful person ever, and living as a man, women in taverns everywhere are throwing themselves in her lap begging for sex, not aware she's a woman disguised as a man.

The Lythande series is noted for it's weird, bizarro sex scenes, featuring Lythande creating illusionary male doppelganger versions of herself to fuck every women she meets, while she gets off on watching. It is by far one of the strangest works of bi-sexual/lesbian fiction to ever come out of the 1970s.

I started writing wizards BECAUSE of the Lythande series. I followed it rabidly, waaay back in the 1970s and 1980s when it was still being written. Sadly the author died before she finished writing it, so it remains in unfinished fragments. The scattered mish mash fragments of it have since been compiled into a "novelised edition" that has had other authors come in and write the "in between pieces" to try to link the disjointed short stories into one longer fluid novel.

But, yeah, no, Lythande is the limit of my having read Fantasy and it's not a novel, but rather was a series of short stories published in magazines in the 1970s. And while it's about a wizard, it's not your typical Fantasy story and is very much slice of life literary fiction that follows the strange sex life of a lesbian wizard who is pretending to be a man. It almost, but not quite crosses the line into being Erotica.

Like I said... I NEVER set out to write Fantasy. I set out to write more books in the shadow of Lythande, and while Lythande is Fantasy, it's it's own unique brand of Fantasy that turned the entire SFF community on it's head when it was released.

White male authors HATED Lythande for it's blatant pro-feminist, anti-male massage.

Straight readers were appalled by it's LGBTQ+ sexuality boldly on parade.

Lythande is one of the first stories ever written in ANY genre to feature a transgender main character.

Authors today, 50 years after Lythande was written, who live in a world where writing LGBTQ+ characters is common and accepted, have no idea the shock waves this EXTREMELY controversial book sent out when it was released. Lythande is the book that changed history, it's the REASON you can safely write LGBTQ+ characters today and not be sent to prison for doing so (except in Florida, the only state left that still in 2018, has laws against transgender characters and imprisons authors living in Florida who published trans characters)

Lythande shook Christian readers to their core by bringing lesbian themes into the Fantasy genre.

If Lythande had not been written when it was, and the author not stood her ground and demanded her right to publish LGBTQ+ characters, we wouldn't have the freedom to write LGBTQ+ characters today. I think a lot of people today overlook the significance this controversial piece of Lesbian Literature has had in changing our rights as authors to write.

Lythande is the book that CHANGED the publishing industry, and made it "okay" to feature LGBTQ+ characters in a GOOD light as none villains. It was the first book to ever do this.

No, I didn't set out to write Fantasy... I set out to follow in the footstep of Lythande. 

So no, I don't read Fantasy novels. I just read Lythande and set off to write something like it. But even now in 2018, we still live in a world where you can publish a woman in pants and no one bats an eye, but try publishing a man in a dress and you'd think you just assassinated the President. No, no, no, no... it's still only equal rights for women who dress like men, while men who dress like women have no rights at all. 

Such is the world we live in, and so as it now hails its 40th anniversary, the Quaraun series is STILL self published with no trade publisher willing to sully their hands by featuring a man in a dress as a main character.

It's been five decades since Lythande broke through these transphobic walls of the publishing industry and still we have not yet achieved full equality.

But I'm getting off topic, let's get back on track before my Lythande obsession side tracked me.

I tried reading Lord of the Rings... I made it to the Hobbits' 25 page long song recital and tossed the book.

I read all 7 Harry Potter books, largely because I thought they were about wizards... but then I read them, and yeah... please tell me WHERE are the wizards in Harry Potter? J.K.Rowlings doesn't seem to have a clear grasp on what a wizard is. Sorry. She doesn't seem to know what witches are either. She seems to think that it's enough to toss a wand in someone's hand and poof, now they are a wizard. That woman really needs access to a dictionary. And a few history books. And then there's the question, can a story about a modern day bitchy, angst, whiny, cry baby 10 year old, struggling through school really be called Fantasy? There's no Fantasy going on in Harry Potter. It's a bunch of kids struggling through school, with, here let's put robes on them and toss a wand in their hands, now we can call them wizards, oh look, a troll ran through the dungeon, now it MUST be Fantasy.

Sure, small children who have no clue a thing about real world magic arts can be easily duped into thinking Harry Potter is about wizards, but I am  a Voodoo Priestess rank of Medsen Fey. I do readings, spell castings, curses, and exorcisms for clients. I'm also a Ceremonial High Magic Necromancer. I trained under the Hebrew Enochain Kabbalist Etiole de bleu de Azure Swanzen, famed for his ability to call up Devs, Ghuls, Daemons, and Djinn, the terror of Maine known mostly for his deadly 7 Year Retribution Curses and Mirror Box Wanga Death Spells. I was his apprentice for 37 years and have now taken over for him. I'm sorry, but real world ritual magic is an everyday part of my life and I don't know what you want to call the kids in Harry Potter, alien mutant from X-files maybe, but they certainly are not wizards, not by any real world definition of the word.

Harry Potter is angsty teen, high school drama, with elements from Fantasy in it. It's not something I would classify as Fantasy. Technically though, Harry potter isn't sold in bookstores as Fantasy, either, it's sold as Middle Grade Fiction, Young adult Urban Fantasy, and Coming of Age Story. It's generally only readers who don't know the definitions of genres who call it Fantasy. And Yes, Urban Fantasy is a vastly different genre then Fantasy, that's why it has a different name.

I did make it through Lord Valentine (Majipoor), The Pern books, and For The Love of Mother Not, but it's hard to call those Fantasy, when they swing so heavily into Space Opera Sci-Fi.

I also read all of The Chronicles of Narnia, but it's difficult to call that level of evangelical Bible bashing true Fantasy... it's more of a religious tract of repent or burn in hell, then it is outright Fantasy.

Now, all that said, you want to know something else? I know my books are Literary first and Fantasy elements after, and I don't submit them to publishers of Fantasy, because I do read publisher submission guidelines and am well aware that these books are not what they are looking for.

No, it's not Fantasy publishing houses, bitching and moaning that my books are:

  • "too literary for my tastes"
  • "avant garde"
  • "artsy-fartsy"
  • "not mainstream enough"
  • "too experimental"
  • "too much dialogue"
  • "not enough description"
  • "reads like a stage play not a novel"
  • "this reads like something Ernest Hemingway wrote, he was a terrible writer, why anyone would want to emulate his style is beyond me"
  • "you men are all alike! all write anti-feminist crap idolizing Ernest Hemingway" 
  • "Do you even read Fantasy?"

No... these things came from Literary Press publishers and publishers of Experimental Fiction. I'm sorry... my books are "too literary" for Literary Press? How is that even possible?

And so while I do not read Fantasy, I do however read a TON of Literary Fiction, thousands of volumes of short stories, particularly small university press published works written in the Slice of Life style, which I've since learned is a style that was created by Ernest Hemingway and is also known as The Ernest Hemingway Style of Writing. When I learned that Hemingway was the inventor of the Slice of Life style of writing, suddenly it made sense to me why so many editors/publishers were telling me my novels were "too much like Hemmingway". I LOVE Slice of Life Literary Fiction, and yes, I do write that style, I just do it with magic and Elves and wizards instead of the current era angsty teenagers that typically grace the genre.

After 30 years of being told my books were crap because they read like Hemingway's books, I decided, maybe I should look up this Hemingway guy and find out who he is and what he wrote. Should probably know what I'm being compared to. So I was in my 40s first time I read Hemingway, and you know what I discovered? People are right. I DO write like him! OMG! Almost exactly! Now I have a new favorite author. I love his stripped down, bare bones, no nonsense, right to the point, 99.9% dialogue, no descritions, no dialogue tag, very stage-play-esque style. Okay. So, now I know I write like Hemingway, but, then my question becomes... why do so many editors and publishers think the Hemingway style of writing is utter crap-tastic shit that should never see the light of day?

>>my writing is simple and light. none of my stories or novels hold any deeper messages or meanings. my writing is also straight to the point... I'm not a fan of flowery descriptions and metaphors

Yep. I'm with you there. I do the same thing and I too do not like flowery prose.

>>i find myself comparing my simple written stories to the complex and deep ones that my writer friends create. i know this is bad, but i cant help it. i feel inadequate next to them.

I think, instead of feeling inadequate, you should instead bask in the glow of your uniqueness and be proud of the fact that you don't follow the crowd and do what everyone else is doing, just to fit in.

I know when people say "we need more diverse books" they generally mean, needing more non-white or non-straight characters, but there is more to diversity in books then just a character's race or sexuality... there is also diversity in style of writing too.

Don't feel bad about your work. Never let anyone make you not proud of what you write. Writing is hard work. You pour your heart and soul into it. Let your writing be what you want it to be, not what others think it should be.

"Well you could..."
"I think you should..."
"...separate it into phrases."
"...keep people's phrases together."
"I just said that!"
"So did I!"
"Or we can say it together!", they said at the same time.


^^^This fast moving, overlapping, interrupted, dialogue without tags format is called, The Ernest Hemingway Style of Writing (his novels went on for 100+ pages in this manner without ever including descriptions, narrations, character names, or "said" tags)

Yes, I know, the entire writing community hates Ernest Hemingway and every editor and publisher on the planet wishes he'd killed himself sooner so they didn't have to acknowledge his books exist, and the going advice is to run from his style of writing like it was the plague, but I love this style of endless non-stop dialogue, free of descriptions and tags, I do write the Quaraun series in this format, and I wish more authors would use this method as I love dialogue written like this.

After reading Hemingway, a habit I started doing fewer than 5 years ago, I'm left to wonder why it is that every author, editor, and publisher I've ever crossed paths with, hates him with such verhement fury.

About a year ago, somewhere on Reddit, this very sub, I think, there was a writer, who asked a very simple question: "How can I learn to write like Ernest Hemingway?"

They were met with well over a hundred replies from authors telling them Hemingway's style was shit and to not attempt to try it.

They called it old fashion, male power, out dated, anti-feminism, and a long list of other things. I've yet to find any of these things in his work.

They raved and ranted that it was a horrible style because of it's lack of descriptions or narration. They said it was difficult to read, confused readers, and left too much to the imagination. I must say, I have to wonder at the IQ level of someone who finds Hemingway difficult to read. A kindergartener could read his work and understand it. It's that bare bones and no nonsense.

The Hemingway style of writing is simple, clean, uncluttered, has no deep meanings, no hidden messages, contains no flowery descriptions, and has no metaphors. It's simple, bare bones, no nonsense, straightforward writing, that says things like they are. It's sometimes crude, and makes no attempt to whitewash the horrors of Human nature. Swearing, drinking, smoking, drugs, abortion, sex outside of marriage are all things found in his works. He makes no attempt to hide them. They are just there. In the 1920s, when writing such topics was very taboo.

You don't need a dictionary to figure out what he's saying because he didn't sit there with a thesaurus hand picking the most obscure words possible to use.

>>i can't write 'deep' or overly descriptive stuff

>>my writing is simple and light. none of my stories or novels hold any deeper messages or meanings. my writing is also straight to the point... I'm not a fan of flowery descriptions and metaphors

>>i find myself comparing my simple written stories to the complex and deep ones that my writer friends create. i know this is bad, but i cant help it. i feel inadequate next to them.

>>I write Young Adult novels, typically contemporary and urban fantasy.

It doesn't matter what genre you write in, any genre can be written in any style. 

Ernest Hemingway Style, is exactly that, a STYLE of formatting your words on the page. It is not a genre and can be used in any genre out there.

You, unfortunately are writing in the Ernest Hemingway Style, the single most reviled and most hated style of writing out there. Every author on this subreddit will be coming after you in lynch mob fury at the horror of someone not writing purple prose. Every editor and publisher on the planet will scream raging infernos at you. And I don't know why, other then, they have snooty pretentious-sticks up their asses.

Readers love Ernest Hemingway. Authors, editors, and publishers hate him. Go figure.

If you are aiming to publish, you might find it difficult to attract a publisher, especially if you are aiming at the YA or Urban Fantasy markets. Both have die hard readers that expect flowery prose, hidden messages and deep meanings. YA these days seems to REQUIRE some Bible-thumping, bash that moral into your reader's brain message to be well woven into it.

YA readers just want to read an entertaining story, but YA publishers have to cater to the white power, gay hating, born again Christian American parents who buy the books, to hell with what the children WANT to read. For some reason deep meanings, hidden messages, flowery descriptions, and metaphors do seem to be what they look for, especially in your chosen genre, so writing bare bones, entertainment for entertainment's sake is going to make it very difficult for you to get your work published.

I don't write those things myself, so, I end up self-pubbing a lot of my work. I remember as a kid, being absolutely disgusted by the way The Lone Rangers would be in the middle of a fight with the bad guys, then would suddenly stand up, brush himself off, face the camera, point at the kids watching at home and say: "Now remember kids, don't try this at home!" then jump back into the fight with the bad guy.  I was 6 years old first time I saw an episode of The Lone Ranger do that and it pissed me off. I hated it. I wanted to watch the damned show, I didn't want to be lectured by some know-it-all-adult. Adding those "public service announcements" into the show, totally ruined The Lone Ranger for me. I loved the show, I hated the lectures.

You want to write for teens, write for teens, not their damn, shit-head, holier-then-thou, know-it-all, bully parents. Americans think they know what's right for their kids? Then tell me this:

  • Why is it 80% of all female Americans will have 2 abortions before the drop out (not graduate from) school at the age of 14?
  • Why do 93 CHILDREN die each month in the state of Maine alone, from drug overdoses?
  • Why are there an average of 500 drive by shooting done by teenagers in Chicago, every month?
  • Why does 3 in every 9 children in America die from starvation before reaching the age of 10?
  • Why have 42% of all school in America experienced 3 school shootings since the year 2000?
  • Why do 73% of the members of the Ku Klux Klan join on their 8th birthday?
  • Why is it 94% of the 2million residents of Maine received their first gun on their 8th birthday?
  • Why does America's average heroin addict get their first taste of drugs from their parent's stash before they are 10 years old?
  • Why is it that 2 or of every 3 females in America were raped by a male relative before the age of 12?
  • Why is America the #1 producer of child sex slaves and pre-teen prostitution?
  • Why do 1 in every 7 residents of the state of Maine own a machine gun?
  • Why is 1 in every 4 machine gun owners in the State of Maine under 10 years old?
  • Why is 1 in every 5 gay men in America, murdered before they reach the age of 15?
  • Why is 1 in every 14 transexuals in America beheaded?
  • Why are the heads of 1 in every 5 LGBTQ pet owners' pets in Maine, nailed to their LGBTQ owners' front door?

I'm sorry. Please explain to me, WHY is it that publishers think American parents know what's good for their children, when they can't get their white-power, gay-hating heads out of their Bibles long enough to raise anything other then terrorists?

YA readers just want to read an entertaining story, but YA publishers have to cater to the white power, gay hating, born again Christian American parents who buy the books, to hell with what the children WANT to read.

It's the parents not the kids who want us authors to weave hidden messages and deep meanings into out novels.

Deep descriptions exist in YA novels, because parents have an agenda they want to push, a message they want brainwashed into their children, they don't want their children to have the freedom to think on their own, so they make sure to buy only books that will instill "values" (how to hate everyone different as much as possible) into their children. Parents, not children, buy the books that are riddled with hidden messages, and publishers seek to publish what sells.

If you want to write books that are not riddled with hidden messages to the masses, then, don't write YA genre. Children don't get to decide what they read, they no freedom and no rights, and by American law are nothing but property. 

Sad reality of the publishing industry, is the fact that the bulk of books sold, are bought by people who WANT a hidden agenda in their books. People WANT books that fit their world view. Publishers, publish what sell. Publishers don't care what it is as long as it makes money. It doesn't matter how much an editor loves it, they'll reject it if they think it won't sell. And it doesn't matter how much an editor hates a book, they are in this business for the money and will accept a book they abhor, just because they know it will sell.

The point is, you as an author need to look at your personal goals.

Are you willing to continue onward, writing stuff that you enjoy, but that will likely not be picked up by publishers? If money is not your goal and you are willing to self-publish, then, yes, you certainly can continue as you are now, writing the Hemingway style of writing that is simple, clean, uncluttered, has no deep meanings, no hidden messages, contains no flowery descriptions, and has no metaphors.

If, however, you are looking to trade house publish and become a money raking bestseller, well, you'll have to swallow your pride and learn how to write deep meanings, hidden messages, flowery descriptions, and metaphors, like it or not.

That's just the way the publishing industry is.
