Death Threats and Leaving YouTube

For those of you who follow me on Twitter and YouTube, I'm sure you are aware that Bearing recently put out a video dragging up old crap that dates back to when I used to "work" at AVFM. You can read all about it here, here, and here.

Of course if Bearing had bothered to do ANY research he would have known all of that already and not accused me of being a thief, just like the losers at AVFM did.

I have been fighting these bullshit accusations for years now. They are based on zero evidence, and I have provided all the evidence to prove that I did not ever steal a fucking thing. My only crime? Trying to do something good for men and then getting shit on by those who supposedly care about men's issues.

But I've proven my side, and anyone who chooses to believe liars like Dean Esmay, Paul Elam, Karen Straughan, Suz, and now Bearing, chooses to ignore facts in place of a lie. And that is something I can't do much about. True believers are always gonna true believe no matter what you say or show them.

But thanks to Bearing bringing this shit up again, I have been inundated with hateful comments on YouTube and Twitter. Par for the course really, and usually something I have no problem ignoring. That was until last night when I received this in an email:

If you want to threaten me, have at it. I am quite used to personal threats after years of being a "controversial" person online. But when it crosses the line to threatening my kids, I take it incredibly seriously.

The person who sent this knows what my address is and what school my kids go to. Sorry, but that has crossed the line in more ways than one.

And yes, I have contacted the police and they are forwarding the report to the RCMP.

My question to Bearing is why? Why did you feel the need to make that video? I'm a small YouTuber that really doesn't matter much. Who cares if I came out and agreed you stole Fresh TVs artwork (which you did. It's called intellectual property theft. Look it up)? Who cares if I think you did something crappy? I don't have any clout, any power, or any way to affect your life in any significant way. But yet you found that what I said to be so egregious, so harmful to your ego in some way, that you had to do a video where you dredged up old, debunked shit from 2013? You sold it to your massive audience as truth and didn't even link to my blog where you can find all the proof that I stole nothing. And now I have been dogpiled by your little fans who think I am the scum of the earth, when I didn't do the thing you accused me of. I've been getting nothing but hate filled comments, threats, and general bullshit since you made that video. Does that make you feel awesome? Does that prop up your fragile ego? I mean, it must be fragile since a small, inconsequential YouTuber like me seems to have gotten under your skin so badly by not idolizing you. Think about how pathetic that really is.

So thanks to Bearing, I am now forced to leave YouTube for now. I will leave my channel up, but I will not be making any new content. My video comments have been disabled, my Twitter has been made private, and the RCMP is handling a death threat made against me and my kids.

All of this because I dared to not toe the line. Because I had a different opinion. Because I do not idolize Bearing. And I'm not the first one to receive this level of crap because of Bearing.

So I hope you are happy Bearing et al. I know you find it incredibly amusing that my kids and I have been threatened with death. I know you relish in making others scared and upset. You are a sick individual with no compassion or empathy whatsoever. And I'm sure you don't give a shit about anything I've said here because, in the end, I don't think you are actually capable of any genuine human emotion.
