This guy who posted this stuff is mentally ill, unstable, maybe a psycho, sorry this happened to you. I'd also agree that LW is not out of the woods yet, mentally or otherwise. I don't know what you can do legally other than note the website and see if the cops will take a look at it, the harasser could be held on revenge porn charges depending on the state and what was posted.

He likes to be verbally mean to other people? So he's a bully and a harasser.

Ha sorry, not sure why I just assumed mother while being blind to the acronym. Full disclosure I typed out my little screed right after coming home from work.

What was he doing handing the mom a phone with porn on one of the tabs? Especially considering how easy it is swipe accidentally from one window to the other, etc. Oh and what thirteen year old doesn't know basic wireless router troubleshooting? And who asks their mom for tech help unless they are in IT? It's usually the other way around.

He is really brave for recanting and severely disabled from the car crash, he didn't ask for this. This took a lot of courage to come forward and admit.

I can just imagine the parents implanting false memories into this girl by shaming and worrying over her at the same time and repeating the story as if they were there. Over and over till the girl starts to think the other girl did touch her or worse. This whole thing blows up or it goes away, like it should, for being misguided and inappropriate but not something to turn your daughter into a victim. The parents sound super fundie and I say only have the daughter apologize if you ever do meet again but otherwise I think you should let it go, they've found it a worthwhile anecdote that helpfully conforms to their view of gays as pervs and that seems to suit them.

Really terrible,my heart goes out to the families. I was waiting for an update about these murders. I'm glad to hear the pyscho was caught. To me there's not much point trying to understand, he was crazy and wanted a reason to murder people and he found one, plenty more people like him roaming Iraq as we speak.

Thanks Rob for your advice. I do feel better today, I think months of hiding myself just boiled over yesterday and I had a breakdown after I wrote the post. But I feel way better today and talked with my parents about the whole situation, goals, other places; I probably talked more with them today than I have in months so it was a good thing that came out of it.

What you said is exactly what I fear I'll have to do, which is be aloof, not participate in non-work conversation etc throughout the day. I think I'll keep working there and just see how it goes and get to know the people better to gauge their attitudes etc. If it becomes really toxic I feel confident I can find another job at a different shop easily enough. The only city right now that sparks my interest is Seattle and I'll have some opportunities to visit in the coming months, it can be exciting, and I'll definitely look at other places. If a move doesn't work out I can always come back to my parents, who are very supportive.

I live in Boise, Idaho and I literally wanted to cry when I left work today. I'm closeted(not with close family) and the people I work with were talking about it and not in a good way. I feel like I can't be out without these people being hostile towards me or me being fired. I just feel lost and drained knowing I'll have to work with these types of people if I continue in this profession and state. I started the job recently and don't want to quit because any other shop is the same. One benefit is that it's pretty lax, not an office environment, so I can keep to myself but I don't know how long I can hold out.

Btw, Butch Otter is very popular in Idaho, democrats are a minority in most counties. I think he looks good because Idaho has a small population and few major social problems and his stance on guns, etc makes him a hero. Graduation rates aren't good either, but this is a rural state overall. His attorney general is also looking to appeal the decision, so this isn't over.

We have taggers in our neighborhood but they target side walks and fences and are so few and far between it's not an issue. Still assholes, I hope when they are grown someone offers their white picket fence the same treatment.

The tagger in the link seems like a total asshole, with absolutely no sense of anything.
