#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"."*

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.

#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.


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?

Word choices to include people who identify as genderfluid or nonbinary?


[QUOTE=Anna Iguana ;10156220]Hi, all. First time in this forum. Here's my question, then a bit about me. What word choices do you make to include/acknowledge people who identify as genderfluid, genderqueer, or otherwise do not identify solely as female or male?

For context, I'm a middle-aged cis woman. As a young person, I studied women's studies (that's what it was called then). At the same time, I was raised by editors who instilled appreciation for precise, brief language; that meant specifying singular vs. plural in pronouns and possessives and saying "women" and/or "men" rather than "people." But that leaves people out. 

In casual writing, I will use "they/them" as ungendered singular pronouns. Lately, though I'm writing poetry, and word choices are weighing on me. The rhythm of a line or the balance of a whole piece is affected by each syllable added or removed. 

-As writers, what language related to gender/nonbinary do you use?

-I would especially appreciate your thoughts on poetry.

PS to MacAllister: I searched for an existing thread. Closest I found was http://absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?289203-gender-neutral-pronouns-s-he-(s)he-they-one. That thread, while useful, stops in 2014, and this area of language has been changing quickly. Please move/close this thread if appropriate, though.[/QUOTE]


I am genderfluid. 

Interesting facts:

I've never felt either male or female, but rather felt both. 

I identified as "mixed gender" or "multi gendered" but not intersex, since the 1980s. When adults asked if I was a boy or a girl I frequently said: "Both."

As a child I used to ask our bishop if I had two souls living inside of me. Of course he sent me to a psychiatrist, because, that's what adults do, when an 8 year old says: "I think God made a mistake and gave me 2 souls. I can feel them both inside me. One is a boy and one is a girl. Sometimes I want to play trucks with the boy and sometimes I want to dress up with the girl. My dad bought me a set of Tonka trucks. But my mom made me all these pink sequin pageant dresses and she says I'm not allowed to play with the trucks daddy gave me, so she took an axe to them and chopped them all up and bought me Barbie dolls instead. I don't see why I can't wear dresses and play with trucks too. Why can't I do both. Why can't I be both a girl and a boy."

I had a strange childhood. My dad kept buying me more trucks, my mom kept smashing them up and sewing VERY ADULT "prom style" pageant dresses and making me wear them 24 hours a day all day long, every day, all year long. I loved wearing the dresses, but it made me sad every time she'd pull out the axe and chop up the Tonka trucks. I started hiding the trucks in my grandmother's house. And as a result I still have a few of them today, 40 years later.

I also still wear sequined silk gowns every day as my daily wear. Never stopped even as an adult.

I always used female pronouns. 

There was never a point when I thought of the possibility of "other" pronouns.

I had not heard of the "alternate" pronouns like xe, ze, eh, ey, and the rest, until 2016 - just 1 year ago. I heard of them, when a curious, well meaning binary-cis person came out and asked me: "Why don't you use non-binary pronouns."

My first response was: "What does non-binary mean?"

She went on to say: "Well, I'm a cis-female and..."

I interrupted her before she finished to ask:

"What's a cis-female?"

Yes.

I am gender fluid and quasi-on again/off again transgender. I have been since 1975. And yet, until I meet a social justice warrior in 2016, I had never heard to terms: binary, non-binary, cis, ze, xe, ey, or eh before. Was completely unaware of the existence of such words.

Upon discovering the existence of these weird new pronouns I began asking my trans friends, both online and offline, if any of them used them, and nearly every one of them (about 700 people) stated that either they had never heard of them before or if they had heard of them, they found them to be incredibly offensive.

While I have yet to find a trans person who uses xe, ze, eh, ey, type pronouns, ironically the ONLY people I've been able to find who DOES use these strange alien sounding pronouns are always either non-trans social justice warriors or non-trans authors.

In both cases they speak FOR trans people, without bothering  to find out if what they are saying on our behalf actually even represents us.

No.

Xe, ze, eh, ey, iar, etc type pronouns are NOT used by us actual, real live trans people, and are ONLY used by social justice warriors who have their heads stuffed so far up their asses they they have no clue how offensive they are being to us.

By using the very alien sounding xe, ze, eh, ey, iar, etc type pronouns, you are in fact dehumanizing us and treating us as though we are alien beings who are not human.

In trying to trace the reason why so many non-trans authors are recently using these very alien, dehumanizing pronouns for their trans characters, I discovered that the problem is the know-nothing social justice warriors who are screaming their asses off to get in the news and are vastly misrepresenting the trans community.

They claim to speak for us, but all they are REALLY seeking is to get in the spotlight, so they say whatever they think the news media will swallow, without any thought to the consequences of their actions.

Were they ACTUALLY social justice warriors as they called themselves, they would do their research and put the PEOPLE first. But that is not what they are doing. 

We who actually are trans, are NOT in the spotlight seeking to be on the news. We are NOT trying to be different. We did NOT actively wake up one day and think:

"Huh, I want to be female." We were born this way. We knew we did not fit the male/female norm as toddlers. We didn't suddenly decide to become something else.

The big name celebrities who get in the news and do the whole: "Look at me, I'm female now!" They DO NOT represent us as a whole and most of us look at them as just being show offs, becoming a female only to try to keep on top of some trend they think they need to be on top of.

Most REAL WORLD, every day trans and genderfluid people, are no different from anyone else. We live our lives, we have families, we go to school, go to work, and...we ourselves don't think about our gender UNTIL some stranger brings it up.

We aren't out there like the big name celebrities are doing, running around going "Look at me! I'm a gender fluid!" It's not something we even talk about.

I think people who are not trans, put way too much thought into what our lives are like.

I also think the recent rise of lots of teens boldly proclaiming their trans-ness on Tumblr is more about them just seeking attention and jumping on the "I want to be different" bandwagon.

It is my belief that the bulk of the kids, will stop identifying as trans once the "I need to be different" fad wears off.

That is not to say that ALL of them are doing this, mind you. Certainly many are in fact trans and or genderfluid. But in my experience the people who are proclaiming their transness the loudest on social media, are often the ones who don't know what trans evenis. Many of them call themselves transsexual, and yet when you ask them:

"How long ago was your sex change surgery?"

They become horrified and answer with:

"Sex change! Who said anything about sex change! I'm not doing that!"

The word transexual MEANS a person who has undergone a sex change surgery. The word trassexual is NOT interchangable with the word transgender. 

They have two very DIFFERENT meanings. Transexual individuals make up fewer then 3% of the transgender community.

If you are too stupid to even know the meaning of the word transsexual, than you have no business calling yourself trans. Their inability to even get the words correct when describing themselves, that alone speaks volumes for how NOT trans they actually are.

And this falls back into the words cis and binary...

Those are words that were created by non-trans people as a way to put labels on people, as a way to dehumanize people different from themselves.

In proudly saying: "I'm a ci-girl!" It's no different from a Ku Klux Klan member saying: "I'm white!"

Calling yourself cis or binary, that's just you trying to say you are better, because you fit a profile. It's very offensive. It just one more way you people use to treat us not Human and try to separate us from society. 

It's cruel.

It's mean.

It's arrogant.

It's you ostracizing us and not allowing us to be or feel welcomed.

So, no, we trans and genderfluid, do NOT like that authors and social justice warriors are trying to single us out by inventing new words to describe us.

We are people, human, just like you. Why can't you accept that?


A common question from readers of the Quaraun series is to ask why Quaraun uses male pronouns.

The answer is quite simple: Quaraun is a genderfluid transvestite, NOT a transexual. Quaraun is what is known as an androgynous genderfluid person.

Like all genderfluid people he is NOT trying to CHANGE from one gender to the other, but like all genderfluid people, most strangers he meets are unable to tell by looking at him if he is male or female.

Though male, Quaraun looks incredibly female. His body never developing any male masculinity is a result of an injury he received as a teenager. Quaraun has what is known as a sub-penial incision injury. His penis is badly scarred and severely damaged to the point that he is nearly incapable of having sexual intercourse. Multiple scars radiate around his groin, hip, and genitals. This was a result of his being stabbed many times by bullies.

While he bares the outward scars of this attack, Quaraun also suffered the long term side effect of having his reproductive organs damaged in this manner - meaning his body produces almost no testosterone, resulting in his small bone structure, his slim muscular structure, and his curvy features that result from fat deposits, overall leading to his looking very female.

In spite of his being able to pass for a female, Quaraun is genetically/biologically male and continues to use male pronouns for himself, as he is in fact NOT trying to be a female, and has no control over the fact that he looks like a female.

The confusion readers seem to have, appears to come from the fact that the word transvestite starts with "trans" and as the average American has no clue how to use a dictionary or use the English language, they are quick to jump to the false conclusion that any word starting with "trans" somehow always means transsexual.

A transsexual is a person who is actively attempting to change their gender.

A transvestite is a person who believes cloths have no gender.

Female transvestites are far more common then male transvestites.

ALL women who wear pants are transvestites.

90% of the female population of America are transvestites.

EVERY female in America who wears blue jeans is a transvestite.

Has it sunk into your head yet, the differance between the word transvestite and transexual and transgender? 

Women who run around Maine, WHILE WEARING BLUE JEANS and scream "transvestite freak" only prove themselves brainless idiots for being unaware that they themselves are transvestites.

If you are gonna speak the English language, it might do you well to open a dictionary once in a while and actually learn the meanings of words.

Do keep in mind that transvestites are NOT accepted by the transgender community as being transgender and are often, beaten up and or murdered by very hot tempered and exeesivly violent  transexuals.  You will be hard pressed to find a transexual who does not vehement hate transvestites and seek all transvestites to be dead. 

  • The word transvestite means: "a person who wears clothes that were designed for the opposite gender".
  • Transvestites make no attempt to change their gender.
  • A transvestite believes clothes do not have gender.
  • A man who wears dresses is a transvestite.
  • A woman who wears pants is a transvestite.
  • Transvestites make up more then 60% of the total American population.
  • More then 90% of American's female population wear pants and are therefore transvestites.
  • In spite of transvestites making up 60% of the total population, the transgender community makes up less then 10% of the total American population.
  • Transvestites are NOT considered part of the transgender community.
  • Transexuals make up 3% of the transgender community.
  • 80% of all America's transexuals are in prison for murder - a side effect of taking illegal underground black market hormone therapy. 

This then leads to other reader questions of, if he's not trying to pass himself off as a female, why then does he wear dresses.

For starters:

The novel BoomFuzzy takes place in the year 938.

Pants had not yet been invented.

So, there's THAT.

Secondly, the reason is clearly stated in the novels...

Quaraun is the youngest child, of a very large family. It never says the exact number of siblings he has, as the story is told from his perspective and he, himself did not know how many siblings he had. What is does say is this:

"Quaraun was the youngest child of the king's younger brother. The only son, with multiple dozen older sisters. As a toddler he looked up to his sisters and did everything they did, including wearing their cloths. This action was overlooked by the adults as cute childish behaviour. The Elves only began to worry, when as an adult, Quaraun continued to dress no different from his sister's, seemingly unaware of the fact that boys were supposed to do their hair differently from girls and wear clothes different than girls. Upon his refusal to stop dressing like his sisters, Quaraun's father did the unthinkable and cut Quaraun's long waist length hair, then burned all of his dresses. Confused as to why he was being singled out, Quaraun was unable to understand why he alone, and none of his sisters, was the target of their father's wrath."

Quaraun's mother dies when he is just 3 years old, after which he is largely ignored by his father and instead raised by his older sisters, who treat him as though he was another sister. He is never treated like a boy, never made aware of the fact that he even is a boy, and, is confused by the way other Elves react to him, when as an adult he continues to dress and act like a girl.

Raise a child in the way they should go and when they are old they shall not fall from it. 

Quaraun was raised as and treated like a girl for his entire childhood (75 years - by Elf life spans) and being part of the royal family he is never allowed out in public during his childhood, so he never interacts with other male children, and is raised oblivious to the fact that he was being treated vastly differently then how most boys were treated.

Thus we have a male Elf who dresses and acts female as an adult, but is not in fact trying to be female and is largely unaware of the fact that he is acting out of the ordinary.


Since you used the word "genderqueer" I feel I need to comment on this as well.

In my local region "queer" (and therefore also "genderqueer") is seen as a hate slur against gay men, the equivalent of the n-word. Like fag, faggot, tranny, and bugger, queer is a word ONLY used by haters and NEVER used in the LGBTQA+ community.

This is partly due to the fact that the Ku Klux Klan is heavily active in this area, and house bombs, beheaded pets, and dead/beheaded gay men hanging in flag poles with the word queer painted across their naked body, is very big problem here in Maine.

Since 2014 the KKK has kidnapped, beheaded and returned the heads of 500 cats and dogs belonging to 140 LGBTQA+ families just in my town alone (Old Orchard Beach).

4 people have been beheaded in the neighbouring town of Saco since 2015.

My cousin who lived next door to me was beheaded in 2013.

My house was blown up by a bomb in 2006.

2 of my cats had their heads nailed to my front door in 2015.

The FBI is here trying to identify these terrorists, but when dealing with men hiding behind white hoods, it's difficult to identify them.

When I say the KKK's anti-gay hate crimes are an out of control problem in Maine - I mean exactly what I say. And so when I tell you... DO NOT under ANY circumstances use the word QUEER or GENDERQUEER to describe us, I mean that too.

I know in recent years there is a trend in big cities for younger generations to be "neutralizing" or "making friendly" the word queer... but I would challenge them to walk down the streets of Maine wearing their "I'm a proud queer" t-shirts and see how long they can keep their head attached to their body. Marching around wearing shirts saying "Queer and proud" may be fine and dandy in a gay-friendly community, but for those of us who live in areas where gay hatred is bad and getting worse, we know the true meaning of the word queer and the damage the younger generation is doing by trying to "reclaim" that horribly offensive word.

If you only plan to sell your book to big city young folks who've never lived with real, actual, hard core discrimination, then using the word "queer" may not be that much of an issue... but no small down LGBTQA+ person who has to live with the word "queer" graffitied on their house, or has been hung in a tree naked with "queer" painted across their body, is going to see your book as anything other than a slight against them. Maine's "Transgender Murders" are out of control and getting worse every year, yet most of the world turns a blind eye to the slaughter and terrorism we LGBTQA+ citizens have to face every day in Maine.

Remember, just because a few big cities, celebrities, and out spoken social justice warriors have embraced the word "queer" has "friendly" doesn't mean the bulk of the LGBTQA+ community agrees them. And no one who's ever come face to face with the KKK is going to do anything but cringe every time they see or hear the word queer.
