A Marriage Repaired: You can take on your marriage, improve yourself, deal with your children; or look realistically at divorce. There is dignity in making it work. There is dignity in making it work. But if kids are the only reason you’re not headed to the courthouse, you might not be making the healthiest choice for you or for them, says Rebecca Hendrix, L.M.F.T., a marriage and family ... Raising the kids is so consuming that it can occupy all the oxygen of a marriage. “It’s easy to ignore, gloss over or not deal with the dysfunction of your marriage,” Purdy said. And if you take the call on ending it, then how to leave a marriage should be just as important as when to leave the marriage with kids. The final decision depends on whether you and your spouse both want to work it out and are willing to make it work day in and day out. After hanging onto my marriage for way too long (to the point where things got Divorce Court ugly), I finally mustered the courage to end the 18-year union with my high school sweetheart. Although I was the one to finally walk away, I was devastated by the death of the dreams I'd held for myself and my children and the idea of a single future.

Nothing bad or negative to say about my ex wife. She was a wonderful woman, we built a wonderful life together, and we’re still friends till this day.
After the divorce, I wanted to take some time to work on myself before jumping back into the dating world (especially with having to learn the new lay of the land with online dating > real life in person dating).
Out of all places, I started getting into a conversation with some girl on Facebook about politics. I know, not exactly the best topic to start off a relationship with anyone. But we quickly took the conversation away from Facebook and onto Snapchat.
Then, I found out that one of her side hustles was cam modeling. Now, I was always sex positive and non-judgmental about stuff like that since I was 15 and had any idea what sex even was. So, as soon as she felt that about me, she eventually gave me her cell and we exchanged real names and Google-stalked one another lol
We’ve been talking (if not every single night), at a minimum, every other night from 9pm to 6am or some mornings from 8am to 11am. Long video calls, just smoking, cooking, eating, listening to music, painting, talking, just genuinely enjoying one another’s company. We’ve been doing this for about two months now.
We live in opposite parts of the country. I’m in the east coast and she’s in the west coast. We’re setting up a date to meet up close to Halloween.
As a man, I know the stereotype or social expectation is that as a freshly divorced guy, I should be making up for lost time and wetting my dick for as long as I still can ... but I didn’t even have a chance to get my brain there.
This woman has already touched my soul. I feel like I’ve never felt this way my whole life (and idk if this is just because it’s been less than a year since I first started the divorce process, and people are emotionally crazy after getting divorced for a while), or if it’s the real thing.
I keep catching myself having these crazy fantasies I didn’t even have with my wife of 9 years. I fantasize about seeing the smile on my future mother-in-law’s face. I fantasize about us living together. I fantasize about us making a home every 2 years together, and then selling it and moving somewhere new every 2 years (because she can’t stay in one place for too long without getting bored).
I feel like my heart already belongs to this woman, and we haven’t even met face to face yet.
Is this crazy, or is this normal? I legit feel kind of crazy. Is this what it feels like?

Hey all, first time posting anything ever, so I'm not sure how this will go down, but I've seen great advice pop up here in the past so I wanted to see what your opinion might be in my situation. Disclaimer, I'm terrible at keeping things short.
So, I've been a camgirl for 4 years now. I'm proud of what I've accomplished with it, and I know it's not everybody's piece of cake, but I wouldn't have become the confident, independent person I am today without it.
I met my boyfriend in the spring of 2019. We didn't start dating until this spring, however, before we started dating, we would occasionally flirt online (we don't live in the same country, unfortunately, so add in a long-distance aspect to this as well), and he had even purchased my "private Snapchat" at some point. It's a fairly young relationship, but I've never been happiemore at home with someone, and he expresses that he feels the same. He also has always passionately supported sex workers, which I was always grateful for. Unfortunately, during the time I was visiting him, I wasn't able to work at all, which for him meant he wasn't able to normalize dating someone who was a sex worker right off the bat, and for me, meaning I wasn't able to see how he'd eventually feel about the fact that his partner was a sex worker.
Turns out, he isn't a fan. We've agreed it might be easier for him to deal with it if/when we're in person again, but I have a feeling the discomfort he feels is rooted deeper than that. Ultimately, he feels I've pushed him aside and am now putting more energy/attention into camming than I am into him, or us. This is difficult for me because while I don't want him to feel secondary to anything, I'm not sure he would have the same issues if, say, I was MORE unavailable doing a LESS sexual job, and at the end of the day - it is my job. I have to put a significant amount of energy/attention into it in order to pay my bills. He's also expressed that he'd be more comfortable if we did it together - which is fun and fine and I do want him to be a part of it, but we're not together right now. It also raises the issue of some sort of ingrained ownership. Is my job only okay if you can show the world I belong to you while I do it? Of course, it's different than a "normal" job, but I have to turn it around and wonder how he'd feel if I wanted more of a presence in his job for my own comfort.
I'm presently trying to give him more of my time and energy when he wants it, but there are some things that still don't feel right to me. I'm willing to compromise and try to work with his feelings, but nothing I do seems to make it better for him. In the end, he can't get past the fact that I'm "intimate" with "the whole internet" more than I am with him.
Now, all this being said, he's a wonderfully supportive, intelligent, patient man in every other domain. I know there's a lot of potential talking points here and layers to the issue, but ultimately I'm just wondering if an outsider can see a way to navigate through this that we don't. When it comes up at this point, both of us sort of shut down and it feels like we're at an impasse, because I don't know how to compromise within this situation to make him feel better or if compromising is going to even help, and for him, of course, you can't get over self-esteem/jealousy issues in a day. I love him, but I love my job too, and especially during a pandemic, I'm not too inclined to go out searching for something else.
Is there a way we can work through this, even being so far from each other? How have you gotten through your jealousy/self-esteem issues and found trust in your partner despite distance/circumstance? How can I build him up to a point where my job isn't a factor in his self-esteem?
tl;dr: Long-distance partner feels pushed aside by my sex work, I want to keep doing sex work but I also want him to know he's important to me, we're not sure where to go from there.

2020.09.29 09:01 xrisad A pat in a back would really help 😣 part 1
Haha I'm fucked up ng sobra 😂 tang ina puro mood swings ako kasi nag yoyo ang insecurities ko at overthinking.
Im 28 [M] living in Manila and patuloy na kinikikilala ang sarili. Fuck all of the eyes na nag judge pero mas pipiliin ko mgpaka totoo kasi I really need to vent this fucking one out.
I grew up straight. Nagka gfs, flings, ons. I was a fucking horndog back then pero wala nakakaalam na may kulo ako sa loob 😅 mas kilala akong matino, good boy image, matalino and all that shit. I mean totoo naman pero tinago ko talaga pagiging malibog ko. Nood porn, pillow fuck, literoticas lahat ata I was in deep euphoria of attaining the feeling of masarap labasan puta orgasms pa. It elevated to one day nalasing ako sa bar pero nagalaw ako ng isang guy. I was really fucking drunk di ako makalaban pero nung na BJ na nya ako naramdaman ko yung sarap tas di nako lumaban kasi umamin ako na masarap pala kahit lalaki.
Turning point: nag evolve ata libog ko para akong sex machine na halos lahat ata papatusin makamit lang ung sarap. I never really dwelled so much on my preferences kasi sa totoo lang libog lang hanap ko and if ever na mainlove ako sa babae talaga gusto ko hindi naman ako na aattract sa kapwa lalaki kasi gusto ko makapag relationship ba. Ewan eh basta ganun tlga nararamdaman ko. So ayun nga kainitan ng new evolved kalibugan ko lahat ata pinapatos ko fubu babae, trip sa lalaki. Tbh hindi ako nakiki pag penetration sa lalaki kasi iba ung gusto ko? Kink ba or what pero kasi dominante kasi tlga ako maybe gusto ko yung feeling na dino dominate kita na vavalidate yung sense of entitlement ko na kaya ko magdala, I just to edging or jerk off pero nang titease ako to a point na may nagmamakaawa na kasi gusto na mag palabas sobrang turn on sakin ung itsura ng libog na libog na tapos ako may control kung kelan. Hindi ko masabing top ako kasi di naman ako kumakantot ng lalaki pwetan pa pwede pero insertion pass.
Alam ko tlga sa sarili ko libog lang habol ko, hindi kasi tlga ako na inlove sa mga naka trip ko kumbaga sa iba parang kantot kalimot vibes.
Pero things took a different turn? (read the story further for full context)
Sobrang gulong gulo ako kasi last year may nakilala ako online kasi laman ako ng mga fb groups bago pa man sumikat ung letseng plantdemic at plant tito tita na yan matagal nadin ako nag hahalaman mga 2 yrs ago pa? Last year lang ako ng decide na mag elevate ng caring routine para gumanda pa halaman ko.
BTW, He is a guy (OFW) out of casual interest kasi siya ung the go to guy kapag gusto mo matuto sa halaman sya talaga nilalapitan.
Nagchat ako sakanya asking about the initial care of the plant kasi ung plant group na sinalihan ko eh enthusiasts sya for a certain plant. He is friendly tas ng click kami? Alam mo yung feeling mo bestfriend mo sya pero 1st day pa lang kami nagkakausap? Tang ina ang passionate, he was giving me infos and details tas ako naman hanggang hanga kasi ang galing ba? Never pako na kakilala ng taong ganung ka passionate sa hobby tas Nakaka inspire na ako din sana maging kagaya nya one day. Days turns into weeks at ganun padin pag uusap namin tungkol sa halaman kasi dami ko gusto matutunan talaga, as weeks goes by navavalidate din ung feeling na close kayo tas para talagang bestfriend ko sya pero never ko pa sya nakilala? Some will call it parang soulmate feels? Alam mo ung pakiramdam na parang nagkakilala na kayo before? He feels exactly the same way pareho kami ng sinabi na saang lupalop ba kami ng mundo ipinanganak at bat hindi pa nun kami nagkita? Introvert guy ako so kahit may ganun kaming connection I was still hesitant to show myself to him kasi ganun tlga ako mkpg kilala sa online I use a fake profile and no info about me ang mamikita mo not unless I trust you enough and slowly I will tell and show you who I am.
Potah excited eh kasi mutual feeling ba? Trato din nya kasi sakin is bestfriend na tas bakt daw parang ayaw ko pa magpakita and magpakilala at unfair daw sabi ng gago 😂 eh bakit ba comfort zone ko un. Sa sobrang close at passionate ko kasi malaman ung mga infos tungkol sa halaman we also ended up doing calls usap halaman padin, one day he ask if I want to come with him at virtual tour daw sa isang plant farm na favorite nyang puntahan lagi. Gagi syempre ako bago lang dun sa plant world na ginagalawan nya G ako, ofc d ako ngpapakita 😂 si nood lang ako and so un nga ang genuine lang nung connection namin kasi puro halaman lang lagi at passion tungkol sa halaman ang usapan. Few months went by naging normal samin ung kulitan, plant talks, kalog moments at video call na lagi basta halaman pero one day kinulit nya tlga ako na sana sa dami2 ng napag usapan namin at strong bond ba sana magpakilala na daw ako at magpakita. Which slowly I did, nakita nya ako at nakilala mas naging comfortable na kami sa isat isa kasi for the 1st time nagkita kami face to face.
And WTF, beyond all of those kalog moments, bestfriends, plant passion, I know for some reason nagkaroon bigla ng attraction on my side pota na attract ako sakanya at nakakagago kasi I really never felt like this before. Putang ina I know to myself straight ako. Ehh I would have find it annoying to know kung straight sya? You know what I mean kasi wala nmn ako intention so I also assume he is straight? I was getting confused pero tinago ko sa sarili ko kasi I was rationalizing kako bestfriend ko si gago baka naninibago lang ako sa closeness namin kasi ika ko nga I have never felt like this way before so lugar lugar lang ako kasi sayang din ung connection.
There came a time na busy na sya sa work since contact nmin is online lang kasi online best buds lang kami at di pa sya makauwi dito sa pinas, may time na silent period ba kasi busy tlga sya laging pagod kuno ganun? Tas ako chill lang kako andito lang ako take your time ba. Pero alam mo un deep down medyo namimiss ko sya kasi namimiss ko ung kulitan namin namimiss ko makakita ng magandang halaman kasi ung mga halaman na pinapkita nya wala pa sa pinas.
One strange day happened na aun after a toxic weeks he came back and talk ulit kasi may oras na ulit sya and naninibago ako saknya kasi it feels like may gusto syang itanong or palabasin? Na kesyo kelan na daw ba ako mag aasawa or makaka jowa or kesho single ba daw ba ako? At the back of my mind my gut feeling ako na gusto nya umamin? Kasi call me assuming but it felt like he was also attracted to me? Hindi ko alam syempre kasi I never asked him I just know based on how I had observed. And it took a toll on me as I can't stop thinking about what happened that day. It took me about 2 weeks to man up and sabi ko sa sarili ko "gago bahala na, naiipon kasi sabhin ko na lang na prang may crush ako sknya pra makapag move on nako tas bahala na kung ano reaction nya". Into which I finally did pero sa chat lang tapos he responded to be very shy kasi sabi nya di lang daw ako ung gumawa saknya ng proposals na ganun at madami na lalaki dn ang gumawa nun sknya.
And I was like ok wtf ang charismatic mo pala 😂😂
(tbh ngkaroon ako mg curiosity about plant people kasi based doon sa group na nasalihan ko prang madami ata lumalabas na silahis kesa sa straight na plant peeps 😅 not generalizing ah based lang sa na observe ko please prove me wrong)
He kinda shifted to another topic as if he never read it again, but it really became strange after, kasi prang nag iiba nadin pakitungo nya nararamdaman ko un shempre biglang flirty ganun may pa innuendos. And naguluhan ako lalo kasi call me TH but it feels like this fucking prick is playing dalagang filipina hahahaha then again he is my best bud di ko un inalis sakin prang benefit of the the doubt ba. Pero dahil gago ako kasi tlgang naiipon na naman ung nararamdaman ko based dun sa galawan nya nung isang beses tlga na nag uusap kami thru call he reverted back dun sa mga tanong na kelan na daw ba ako magkakajowa and all shit. I really man up and reiterated what I said na I like him ba na kako bahala na kung ano reaction mo basta ilalabas ko sa system ko to pra maging ok nako ulit.
At ayun, nagulat daw tlga sya and umamin na he kinda felt the same way as I am? 😳😳 Fuck my best bud? Ofc ako nagulat ako kasi wala nmn ako ineexpect tlga kasi gusto ko lang matanggal sa dibdib ko ung naiipon. I was happy he felt the same way pero hindi ko dn Alam ano ggawin kong move next kasi bago lang to sakin.
But you know? I never really let it get through my head masyado prang sinabi ko sa sarili ko na best buds kami super close kami so ok lang kung mag lambing ba? But it was different kasi prang mas naging extra flirty sya potaaahhh tinablan namn akong si gago haha 😅 I keep on telling myself na how? Babae kasi tlga ako na a attract how come for once? Isang lalaki? Best friend ko pa. In short there came a time na Malambing na tlga, send selfies, pa cute pa ganun, we were still all based on plants padin naman pro na dagdagan ung flirting side 😳
More than half a year na kami nguusap lately lang ung may pa flirt flirt? I kinda became horny as well kasi may time na tang ina ng send ba nmn ng selfie na nang aakit? Ewan ko ba the selfie was a simple flying kiss act pero it got me turned on so baddd.. Me knowing I'm comfortable with him, I had admitted na ui tang ina mo wag ka nga mag ganyan na tuturn on ako letse ka 😂 and gago un ng spam ng selfies until I can no longer hold my urge and I took the risked and asked if he wants na makapag SoP sakin. He was shocked pero tinanggap nya yung offer. I was shocked dn pero I was too horny not to pass the opportunity. We did the deed and bukas kami na paisip on what happened to us.
It seems nagkaroon ng bokingan at pareho na namin inamin na we were attracted pa pala to one another matagal na.
We still became best buds pero pota may libog moments na na dagdag jerk off cam to cam.
Tbh this was the first time I said to myself secretly potah inlove ata ako pero sa lalaki pa? Totoo ako sa mga past relationships ko na babae mahal ko sila. Ung mga ons at fling ko tinablan naman ako eh nakapag hook up ako sknla so it means I know my attraction well. Pero iba tong nangyari sakin? Parang organic or naturallt fell into place? Hindi ko to pinili I was just being honest and genuine tas prang na inlove ako.
To which somewhat he kinda reciprocated? Hindi ko tlga alam magulo kasi wala naman nangyaring labels parang nadala siguro kami ng passion namin sa isat isa kasi tang ina ng ilys na kami pero d nmn mg jowa? Ng cam to cam pero bestfriends? Pareho ba kaming duwag? Or pareho ba kaming naninibago?
Too which finally came my downfall, kasi prang ako ata tlga ung na fall inlove hard kasi genuine honesty, ngayon lang ako nakaramdan na prang ako ung na inlove at hindi ako ung prang nilapitan. Maybe naging clingy ako? Pero sya din kasi ng show signs eh ng try pdn ako lumugar with reservations 😂😂
But one day prang nag bago ihip ng hangin? Prang ng bago sya one day as if nawala ung lambing ganun ung oras, ung bond ng passion? Maybe with all of the mixed feelings na overwhelm sya and one day decided to be quiet. Which took an emotional roller coaster sakin kasi feel ko my bestfriend ghosted me. Alot of misunderstandings ang ngyari Kasi on and off communication at hindi kami mg meet half way.
I got depressed kasi pakiramdam ko ako na lang tlga ung nghahabol? Kahit ba malabo and I don't know what he wants? I still am going for the genuine friendship we had. I told him na sabi ko depressed ako kasi madami ngyari sa buhay ko tas dumagdag pa to and I said I wanna die kasi umabot ako sa emotionally exhausted nako. my personal problems ruled over me and I really felt I had no one kasi lht iniwan ako or I became too convenient with everyone.
Right now I managed to bounce back pero sa totoo lang? I wanna know what happened between us. I'm still finding my own strength. Kasi I'm still trying to accept the reality na prang nagbago bigla sumila nung nanahimik sya ng di ko alam reason bkt.
Up to this day it feels like nagbago tlga lht ngchachat na lang un Kung kelan nya gusto at naninibago at nasasaktan ako kasi pakiramdam ko kht bestfriend ko wala napakelam sa nararamdaman ko na namimiss ko lang mkpg usap ganun. I know he has his own problems to deal with pero gusto ko malaman tlga at maliniawan, if he can do that before bkt ngayon hindi na? What went wrong? Mali ba ako? Why did he kept quiet? Why did he change?
Why do I feel like I gave up my heart to feel alone again 🥺
I know mahabang story sorry need ko tlga to ilabas, Kung nakaabot ka gang dito salamat at nabasa mo.

I will make this short. I video sexed 3 times. 2 with randos online and i didn’t show my face-> which i don’t worry about too much. One with someone i met online and had some sort of relationship with.
I have done at least 6 video sex with him and most of them i showed my face and body. I regret it enough and i won’t ever do something like that again but to give myself an excuse i was so ignorant back then. I trusted him when he said he’s only forcing me to do this because he loves me too much. I hated it when he cut himself and get mad at me for not doing what he wants me to.
He was an asshole. He lied to me about everything, anything, most of the things. It took me 8 months to get back to normal me after leaving him.
My question is how do i make sure he didn’t record it? I know i can’t but i just fucking wanna get this out of my head and live my life. I keep posting things related to this but i can’t seem to fucking get over it fully. I googled myself million times and googled every keyword related such as “ video sex, cam sex, skype sex, facetime sex, facetime pussy, facetime tits” ... and i have’t found mine. I have my guts telling me he didn’t because if he did he would have threatened me with it. ( he have with other video calls i made with randos he said he’ce seen it online and he took it down somehow. I believed him, i know i was an idiot. But later he told me he lied. I feel like if he had videos of me he could have easily threaten me with it) Can anyone tell me i’m ok? What am i supposed to do here? I feel like a used and broken one. I can use all the names to call myself and how dirty i feel. What if i can never be forgiven by anyone i love or will love in the future? Where do i go from here?

TW: self harm, thoughts of suicide
Just feel my mental health declining and my thoughts are all over the place.
Hate my whole life including my university degree, my appearance, my relationship and everything in between.
I feel so unhappy with every part of my life but I can't change it and i need to stick at it all to make it better for my future. However I dont see a future for myself anymore its clouded and I just see myself killing myself at a young age.
Feel super depressed about university I have no friends there and my course is now online and the online seminars make me really anxious.
I hate my relationship at the moment I found my boyfriend talking to onlyfans girls in december and now I found out he went on cam sites and downloaded hentai games during lockdown. I feel worthless and unattractive. I love him but I hate the way I feel.
My boyfriend now has mental health issues too so it is hard to support him when I cant support myself and I hold a lot of resentment for him because he doesn't know the way I feel as I have been faithful and wouldn't ever do anything behind his back.
Have body issues such as thinking I'm fat and putting on weight I'm scared to go on the scales because I've been comfort eating and binging so I'm starving myself now to make up for it. Feel ugly like nobody will ever love me including my boyfriend. Feel like he doesnt find me attractive or want to have sex with me anymore. Hate looking in the mirror knowing this is what I'm stuck with and how my body and appearance is forever. Wish I was slimmer and had bigger breasts and less acne scars. Wish I was taller and my face wasnt round like a childs.
My family doesnt know the extent of my problems and it would kill them if they knew I was suicidal and self harming again after about 3 years of sobriety.
Sorry about the mess just in a bit of a crisis and needed to spill my thoughts somewhere. Sorry if it isnt allowed

2020.09.28 00:21 jojosgirls What else would you like to see in this community?
Here are some ideas:
2020.09.27 12:05 allieeveknox Online sex cams
I'm not sure how much money Larissa is making but she is making way more money with her side gigs than her reality show paycheck. And at $1k-1500/episode, big yawn. It might take a few days to film an episode. In that time period, she could now be doing things for her own content sites and make more money off of them.
Let's do some Larissa math: Onlyfans at $25/month. (Onlyfans is a hard one to calculate. I have no idea how many subscribers she has? Like counts don't really provide clues except a minimum number and the majority of subs don't interact with posts. She also has PTV messages, which are messages that people have to pay to see. This is sometimes pics, vids, whatever. The subscriber can't see them unless they pay. The large majority of us OF creators make most of our money that way. She can get out right tipped. She can also sell promo spots to other creators and make a ton (like a "follow my friend, here is her info" kind of post.) She takes home 80% of what she makes on OF.)
Cameos at $100/each. (I don't know if this has always been her price but she has 277 reviews so over that number for sure. She makes 75% cut there.) (Side note: something I found interesting on her cameo bio is that she has her email listed and says contact here for a redo. I wonder if she just does a shitty job and gets complaints?)
Camsoda not 100k: When camsites hire performers, they give performers their fee, maybe $500-$1000 for a solo show. She would have obviously been offered a larger fee, because of her fame (as eye roll as that is to write, it is for real.) So maybe they gave her $10k. 20k, maybe. I seriously doubt and really guess closer to the 10k mark. She doesn't make the tokens, she just gets the rate. So that 100k that was tipped? It goes to Camsoda. That's how every camshow I've ever performed on or produced has worked. If she was to cam on the site as a regular performer, she would make the standard 50-60% (I haven't worked on that site in years but I think they were 60%, which is a higher payout than most sites at 50%.)
Youtube: she can make money here but not like the good ole days. She would also have to put up content consistently. This is harder than thirst trips on OF or 'shoot it one time and done' Cameos.
Plastic surgery at what 70k or whatever? I call bullshit. I think, like many of the Teen Mom cast, she likely got a deal for promo on her social media accounts. She has lots of those "ad" looking posts. I would be willing to bet some are comped.
*also not included but are money making opportunities she has: appearance fees (hey, show up to our club and we will pay you X amount for the night,) promo fees (hey, put this shit up on your Instagram and we will pay you X amount for that post,) selling stories to the press, next will be some sort of Larissa merch or branded product.
If she is smart, or at the very least has decent handlers, she will ride this fame out as much as possible, as quickly as possible. Can she (or Stephanie or Deavan or anyone) ride out those OF numbers when the seasons are over? Maybe, if their content is compelling enough.
And all of these sites mentioned have 1099'd her as a contractor, which means she will pay taxes on these things. She will have to carry that tax burden at a rate that I would guess is not a bracket she has ever been in before.
(Source: am an online sex worker that has done many of the things mentioned)

Hi. I'm that idiot who just typed out a really long post on mobile, accidentally closed it, and had to start over. If friendship were Harry Potter, I'd be your Luna Lovegood. If it were Skins, I'd be your Cassie. I'm told this annoys people.
I think this sub is a really great idea and I want to support it. It's so awesome to help people make friends online.
I love reading, cosplay, fashion design, knitting, writing, photography, videography, horses, precision dance/cheer, and swimming. I'm learning how to roller skate and love derby. Love surfers but can't surf to save my life. I grew up in the city spending weekends at the cottage like a typical Canadian. Equally proficient on hiking trails and snowshoes. I'm a fashion stylist and background actor.
Outside of covid, my work requires a lot of travel and going places alone gets old fast. So does paying for other people to go with me. I really need platonic friends who love cosplay and fashion events as much as I do!
I want to keep this post positive, and it's also important to me to meet the right people. Like most of you, I'd rather not end up in the same toxic friendships from the past. Here is a shortlist of reasons I may not be qualified to be your person.
Age. I'm 32. Please be an adult.
Asthma. I cant spend time with smokers. I have an anaphylactic allergy to Marijuana.
Autoimmune. I'm allergic to a very long list of foods and can't eat or drink at restaurants.
Depression (yours): I have lost friends to suicide and cannot be a support for you.
Intolerance (yours): I can't with racism and sexism.
OCD. This list is in alphabetical order.
Users. No, I don't want to join your cam studio, babysit your kid, join you and your boyfriend, be your sugar baby... but I will be your date to that wedding. Any excuse for a gown!
TL;DR (Neg) Awesome idea for a sub. I hope it's a good place to find friends online who aren't trying to coerce me into sex work... Dare to dream!
TL;DR (Pos) I mean, I hope it's a wonderful place to find fun people with similar interests!

I’ve recently been fighting with myself about something I can’t find a resolution for and would appreciate some input from fellow older INFJs (though if you have something valuable to say, I won’t discard it based on age)
I’m at a point in life where I don’t want to settle anymore but I’ve made enough bad (partner) decisions to want to make smarter choices. Trying to be patient in a way I’ve never been before and not dive in head first.
Choice 1: Y (INFP)
Met on a dating app, initially with no other intent than casual sex, on day 2 we both became aware of a much deeper connection that only got deeper as we started to explore it.
I’ve been talking (voice) and texting to Y for about 5mo, always long distance, never met in person and never seen him on cam.
Seen pics and videos but the only ones with sound are gym grunts so I can’t tell if it’s him just by voice. I want to say yes but just can’t be sure. Every time I’ve asked/pushed to see him there’s been an excuse.
Now this guy was what showed me that it IS possible to have an amazing connection on a mental, emotional and physical plane, something that I had given up on believing it even existed. I don’t even care that he’s 12yrs younger. Almost everything was a perfect match aside from the current distance issue and not actually having met. If covid were not around restricting travel, I would have visited by now (he has a serious family situation and can’t leave regardless)
We have no friends in common who I can trust to confirm meeting him and about a month ago I got stuck in a NiTi loop between trusting him as the love of my life (Ni) and thinking he’s a catfish (Ti).
I tried talking about it calmly but he just accused me of being cold and blocked me, now I finally got him to unblock me but he’s not responding anyway, maybe one short line every other day or less, usually unimportant stuff.
I have since decided that I don’t really care about whether he lied or not, and the connection is more important.
I really don’t want to lose him, but I don’t think we’ll be meeting any time soon, if ever.
After losing trust and hope to have our dream life (reasonable nothing far fetched btw) I’ve turned back to online dating and met (in person):
Choice 2: M (INFP)
Same age as me, great mental connection, attractive but I have no trouble keeping my hands off of him. Not much of an emotional connection that I can feel (blaming that on my attachment to Y).
He seems like the safe choice. Not a lot of risk but I can see it get boring after a while. The redeeming thing is that we’d make good friends and that would be important down the road, if we were to grow old together. Would we even get that far? I doubt I’d be patient enough.
Choice 3: S (Exxx)
Close in age to me, physically attractive, sensual, sexy, charming and I think there’s potential for an emotional connection if I open myself to it. His ethnic and cultural background is very close to Y’s and I wonder if that may be a bigger factor than I’m giving it credit for.
Mentally..I’m still trying to determine how we get along because of a language barrier. He’s smart and he talks a good game. There’s a possibility he’s embellishing stories to impress me.
I’m a polyglot but not as fluent in French as I used to be and he’s still improving his English, so we often switch between the two because I can’t always understand what he’s saying. Phone conversations are a nightmare because of sound quality, in addition to accents and what not.
There’s also a little bit of risk involved as he’s new to the country (less than 1yr) and not yet established in his career as he was in his home country. Cultural differences are there but don’t strike me as a huge factor from what I can sense.
He’s also impatient (like me) and wants to start a relationship with me (disagreeing with my ‘take it slowly’ approach) and I want to give in to his alluring charm, but I also don’t want to rush in and break his heart if things with Y return to a good place.
Whoever i choose, I want to be fair to them and also be honestly happy with them in the long run. Feel safe enough to introduce my toddler daughter to them and spend time together with her too.
After splitting from my kid’s dad I’ve grown away from wanting to even move in with anyone let alone marry again. I don’t even want to sleep next to anyone at night (I sleep better alone). The exception to all of these is Y. I tore down all my walls for him and this carp came out. And I would probably even marry him if he asked.
What would you do if you were me? TIA

The “Mighty Ducks” actor is running for president. He clears the air (sort of) to Tarpley Hitt about his ties to Jeffrey Epstein and more.
In the trailer for First Kid, the forgettable 1996 comedy about a Secret Service agent assigned to protect the president’s son, the title character, played by a teenage Brock Pierce, describes himself as “definitely the most powerful kid in the universe.” Now, the former child star is running to be the most powerful man in the world, as an Independent candidate for President of the United States.
Before First Kid, the Minnesota-born actor secured roles in a series of PG-rated comedies, playing a young Emilio Estevez in The Mighty Ducks, before graduating to smaller parts in movies like Problem Child 3: Junior in Love. When his screen time shrunk, Pierce retired from acting for a real executive role: co-founding the video production start-up Digital Entertainment Network (DEN) alongside businessman Marc Collins-Rector. At age 17, Pierce served as its vice president, taking in a base salary of $250,000.
DEN became “the poster child for dot-com excesses,” raising more than $60 million in seed investments and plotting a $75 million IPO. But it turned into a shorthand for something else when, in October of 1999, the three co-founders suddenly resigned. That month, a New Jersey man filed a lawsuit alleging Collins-Rector had molested him for three years beginning when he was 13 years old. The following summer, three teens filed a sexual-abuse lawsuit against Pierce, Collins-Rector, and their third co-founder, Chad Shackley. The plaintiffs later dropped their case against Pierce (he made a payment of $21,600 to one of their lawyers) and Shackley. But after a federal grand jury indicted Collins-Rector on criminal charges in 2000, the DEN founders left the country. When Interpol arrested them in 2002, they said they had confiscated “guns, machetes, and child pornography” from the trio’s beach villa in Spain.
While abroad, Pierce had pivoted to a new venture: Internet Gaming Entertainment, which sold virtual accessories in multiplayer online role-playing games to those desperate to pay, as one Wired reporter put it, “as much as $1,800 for an eight-piece suit of Skyshatter chain mail” rather than earn it in the games themselves. In 2005, a 25-year-old Pierce hired then-Goldman Sachs banker Steve Bannon—just before he would co-found Breitbart News. Two years later, after a World of Warcraft player sued the company for “diminishing” the fun of the game, Steve Bannon replaced Pierce as CEO.
Collins-Rector eventually pleaded guilty to eight charges of child enticement and registered as a sex offender. In the years that followed, Pierce waded into the gonzo economy of cryptocurrencies, where he overlapped more than once with Jeffrey Epstein, and counseled him on crypto. In that world, he founded Tether, a cryptocurrency that bills itself as a “stablecoin,” because its value is allegedly tied to the U.S. dollar, and the blockchain software company Block.one. Like his earlier businesses, Pierce’s crypto projects see-sawed between massive investments and curious deals. When Block.one announced a smart contract software called EOS.IO, the company raised $4 billion almost overnight, setting an all-time record before the product even launched. The Securities and Exchange Commission later fined the company $24 million for violating federal securities law. After John Oliver mocked the ordeal, calling Pierce a “sleepy, creepy cowboy,” Block.one fired him. Tether, meanwhile, is currently under investigation by the New York Attorney General for possible fraud.
On July 4, Pierce announced his candidacy for president. His campaign surrogates include a former Cambridge Analytica director and the singer Akon, who recently doubled down on developing an anonymously funded, $6 billion “Wakanda-like” metropolis in Senegal called Akon City. Pierce claims to be bipartisan, and from the 11 paragraphs on the “Policy” section of his website it can be hard to determine where he falls on the political spectrum. He supports legalizing marijuana and abolishing private prisons, but avoids the phrase “climate change.” He wants to end “human trafficking.” His proposal to end police brutality: body cams.
His political contributions tell a more one-sided story. Pierce’s sole Democratic contribution went to the short-lived congressional run of crypto candidate Brian Forde. The rest went to Republican campaigns like Marco Rubio, Rick Perry, John McCain, and the National Right to Life Political Action Committee. Last year alone, Pierce gave over $44,000 to the Republican National Committee and more than $55,000 to Trump’s re-election fund.
Pierce spoke to The Daily Beast from his tour bus and again over email. Those conversations have been combined and edited for clarity.
I announced on July 4, which I think is quite an auspicious date for an Independent candidate, hoping to bring independence to this country. There’s a lot of things that I can do. One is: I’m 39 years old. I turn 40 in November. So I’ve got time on my side. Whatever happens in this election cycle, I’m laying the groundwork for the future. The overall mission is to create a third major party—not another third party—a third major party in this country. I think that is what America needs most. George Washington in his closing address warned us about the threat of political parties. John Adams and the other founding fathers—their fear for our future was two political parties becoming dominant. And look at where we are. We were warned.
I believe, having studied systems, any time you have a system of two, what happens is those two things come together, like magnets. They come into collision, or they become polarized and become completely divided. I think we need to rise above partisan politics and find a path forward together. As Albert Einstein is quoted—I’m not sure the line came from him, but he’s quoted in many places—he said that the definition of insanity is making the same mistake or doing the same thing over and over and over again, expecting a different result. [Ed. note: Einstein never said this.] It feels like that’s what our election cycle is like. Half the country feels like they won, half the country feels like they lost, at least if they voted or participated.
Obviously, there’s another late-comer to the presidential race, and that’s Kanye West. He’s received a lot of flak for his candidacy, as he’s openly admitted to trying to siphon votes away from Joe Biden to ensure a Trump victory. Is that something you’re hoping to avoid or is that what you’re going for as well?
Oh no. This is a very serious campaign. Our campaign is very serious. You’ll notice I don’t say anything negative about either of the two major political candidates, because I think that’s one of the problems with our political system, instead of people getting on stage, talking about their visionary ideas, inspiring people, informing and educating, talking about problems, mentioning problems, talking about solutions, constructive criticism. That’s why I refuse to run a negative campaign. I am definitely not a spoiler. I’m into data, right? I’m a technologist. I’ve got digital DNA. So does most of our campaign team. We’ve got our finger on the pulse.
Most of my major Democratic contacts are really happy to see that we’re running in a red state like Wyoming. Kanye West’s home state is Wyoming. He’s not on the ballot in Wyoming I could say, in part, because he didn’t have Akon on his team. But I could also say that he probably didn’t want to be on the ballot in Wyoming because it’s a red state. He doesn’t want to take additional points in a state where he’s only running against Trump. But we’re on the ballot in Wyoming, and since we’re on the ballot in Wyoming I think it’s safe—more than safe, I think it’s evident—that we are not here to run as a spoiler for the benefit of Donald Trump.
In running for president, you’ve opened yourself up to be scrutinized from every angle going back to the beginning of your career. I wanted to ask you about your time at the Digital Entertainment Network. Can you tell me a little bit about how you started there? You became a vice president as a teenager. What were your qualifications and what was your job exactly?
Well, I was the co-founder. A lot of it was my idea. I had an idea that people would use the internet to watch videos, and we create content for the internet. The idea was basically YouTube and Hulu and Netflix. Anyone that was around in the ‘90s and has been around digital media since then, they all credit us as the creators of basically those ideas. I was just getting a message from the creator of The Vandals, the punk rock band, right before you called. He’s like, “Brock, looks like we’re going to get the Guinness Book of World Records for having created the first streaming television show.”
We did a lot of that stuff. We had 30 television shows. We had the top most prestigious institutions in the world as investors. The biggest names. High-net-worth investors like Terry Semel, who’s chairman and CEO of Warner Brothers, and became the CEO of Yahoo. I did all sorts of things. I helped sell $150,000 worth of advertising contracts to the CEOs of Pepsi and everything else. I was the face of the company, meeting all the major banks and everything else, selling the vision of what the future was.
You moved in with Marc Collins-Rector and Chad Shackley at a mansion in Encino. Was that the headquarters of the business?
All start-ups, they normally start out in your home. Because it’s just you. The company was first started out of Marc’s house, and it was probably there for the first two or three months, before the company got an office. That’s, like, how it is for all start-ups.
were later a co-defendant in the L.A. County case filed against Marc Collins-Rector for plying minors with alcohol and drugs, in order to facilitate sexual abuse. You were dropped from the case, but you settled with one of the men for $21,600. Can you explain that?
Okay, well, first of all, that’s not accurate. Two of the plaintiffs in that case asked me if I would be a plaintiff. Because I refused to be a part of the lawsuit, they chose to include me to discredit me, to make their case stronger. They also went and offered 50 percent of what they got to the house management—they went around and offered money to anyone to participate in this. They needed people to corroborate their story. Eventually, because I refused to participate in the lawsuit, they named me. Subsequently, all three of the plaintiffs apologized to me, in front of audiences, in front of many people, saying Brock never did anything. They dismissed their cases.
Remember, this is a civil thing. I’ve never been charged with a crime in my life. And the last plaintiff to have his case dismissed, he contacted his lawyer and said, “Dismiss this case against Brock. Brock never did anything. I just apologized. Dismiss his case.” And the lawyer said, “No. I won’t dismiss this case, I have all these out-of-pocket expenses, I refuse to file the paperwork unless you give me my out-of-pocket expenses.” And so the lawyer, I guess, had $21,000 in bills. So I paid his lawyer $21,000—not him, it was not a settlement. That was a payment to his lawyer for his out-of-pocket expenses. Out-of-pocket expenses so that he would file the paperwork to dismiss the case.
You’ve said the cases were unfounded, and the plaintiffs eventually apologized. But your boss, Marc Collins-Rector later pleaded guilty to eight charges of child enticement and registered as a sex offender. Were you aware of his behavior? How do you square the fact that later allegations proved to be true, but these ones were not?
Well, remember: I was 16 and 17 years old at the time? So, no. I don’t think Marc is the man they made him out to be. But Marc is not a person I would associate with today, and someone I haven’t associated with in a very long time. I was 16 and 17. I chose the wrong business partner. You live and you learn.
You’ve pointed out that you were underage when most of these allegations were said to take place. Did you ever feel like you were coerced or in over your head while working at DEN?
I mean, I was working 18 hours a day, doing things I’d never done before. It was business school. But I definitely learned a lot in building that company. We raised $88 million. We filed our [form] S-1 to go public. We were the hottest start-up in Los Angeles.
In 2000, you left the country with Marc Collins-Rector. Why did you leave? How did you spend those two years abroad?
I moved to Spain in 1999 for personal reasons. I spent those two years in Europe working on developing my businesses.
Interpol found you in 2002. The house where you were staying reportedly contained guns, machetes, and child pornography. Whose guns and child porn were those? Were you aware they were in the house, and how did those get there?
My lawyers have addressed this in 32 pages of documentation showing a complete absence of wrongdoing. Please refer to my webpage for more information.
[Ed. Note: The webpage does not mention guns, machetes, or child pornography. It does state:“It is true that when the local police arrested Collins-Rector in Spain in 2002 on an international warrant, Mr. Pierce was also taken into custody, but so was everyone at Collins-Rector’s house in Spain; and it is equally clear that Brock was promptly released, and no charges of any kind were ever filed against Brock concerning this matter.”]
What do you make of the allegations against Bryan Singer? [Ed. Note: Bryan Singer, a close friend of Collins-Rector, invested at least $50,000 in DEN. In an Atlantic article outlining Singer’s history of alleged sexual assault and statutory rape, one source claimed that at age 15, Collins-Rector abused him and introduced him to Singer, who then assaulted him in the DEN headquarters.]
I am aware of them and I support of all victims of sexual assault. I will let America’s justice system decide on Singer’s outcome.
In 2011, you spoke at the Mindshift conference supported by Jeffrey Epstein. At that point, he had already been convicted of soliciting prostitution from a minor. Why did you agree to speak? You’ve launched your campaign in Minnesota, where George Floyd was killed by a police officer. How do you feel about the civil uprising against police brutality?
I had never heard of Jeffrey Epstein. His name was not on the website. I was asked to speak at a conference alongside Nobel Prize winners. It was not a cryptocurrency conference, it was filled with Nobel Prize winners. I was asked to speak alongside Nobel Prize winners on the future of money. I speak at conferences historically, two to three times a week. I was like, “Nobel Prize winners? Sounds great. I’ll happily talk about the future of money with them.” I had no idea who Jeffrey Epstein was. His name was not listed anywhere on the website. Had I known what I know now? I clearly would have never spoken there. But I spoke at a conference that he cosponsored.
What’s your connection to the Clinton Global Initiative? Did you hear about it through Jeffrey Epstein?
I joined the Clinton Global Initiative as a philanthropist in 2006 and was a member for one year. My involvement with the Initiative had no connection to Jeffrey Epstein whatsoever.
I’m from Minnesota. Born and raised. We just had a press conference there, announcing that we’re on the ballot. Former U.S. Senator Dean Barkley was there. So that tells you, when former U.S. Senators are endorsing the candidate, right?
[Ed. note: Barkley was never elected to the United States Senate. In November of 2002, he was appointed by then Minnesota Governor Jesse Venture to fill the seat after Sen. Paul Wellstone died in a plane crash. Barkley’s term ended on Jan. 3, 2003—two months later.]
Yes, George Floyd was murdered in Minneapolis. My vice-presidential running mate Karla Ballard and I, on our last trip to Minnesota together, went to visit the George Floyd Memorial. I believe in law and order. I believe that law and order is foundational to any functioning society. But there is no doubt in my mind that we need reform. These types of events—this is not an isolated incident. This has happened many times before. It’s time for change. We have a lot of detail around policy on this issue that we will be publishing next week. Not just high-level what we think, not just a summary, but detailed policy.
You said that you support “law and order.” What does that mean?
“Law and order” means creating a fair and just legal system where our number one priority is protecting the inalienable rights of “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” for all people. This means reforming how our police intervene in emergency situations, abolishing private prisons that incentivize mass incarceration, and creating new educational and economic opportunities for our most vulnerable communities. I am dedicated to preventing crime by eliminating the socioeconomic conditions that encourage it.
I support accountability and transparency in government and law enforcement. Some of the key policies I support are requiring body-cams on all law enforcement officers who engage with the public, curtailing the 1033 program that provides local law enforcement agencies with access to military equipment, and abolishing private prisons. Rather than simply defund the police, my administration will take a holistic approach to heal and unite America by ending mass incarceration, police brutality, and racial injustice.
Did you attend any Black Lives Matter protests?
I support all movements aimed at ending racial injustice and inequality. I have not attended any Black Lives Matter protests. My running-mate, Karla Ballard, attended the March on Washington in support of racial justice and equality.
Your platform doesn’t mention the words “climate change.” Is there a reason for that?
I’m not sure what you mean. Our policy platform specifically references human-caused climate change and we have a plan to restabilize the climate, address environmental degradation, and ensure environmental sustainability.
[Ed. Note: As of writing the Pierce campaign’s policy platform does not specifically reference human-caused climate change.]
You’ve recently brought on Akon as a campaign surrogate. How did that happen? Tell me about that.
Akon and I have been friends for quite some time. I was one of the guys that taught him about Bitcoin. I helped make some videogames for him, I think in 2012. We were talking about Bitcoin, teaching him the ropes, back in 2013. And in 2014, we were both speaking at the Milken Global Conference, and I encouraged him to talk about how Bitcoin, Africa, changed the world. He became the biggest celebrity in the world, talking about Bitcoin at the time. I’m an adviser to his Akoin project, very interested in the work that he’s doing to build a city in Africa.
I think we need a government that’s of, for, and by the people. Akon has huge political aspirations. He obviously was a hugely successful artist. But he also discovered artists like Lady Gaga. So not only is he, himself, a great artist, but he’s also a great identifier and builder of other artists. And he’s been a great businessman, philanthropist. He’s pushing the limits of what can be done. We’re like-minded individuals in that regard. I think he’ll be running for political office one day, because he sees what I see: that we need real change, and we need a government that is of, for, and by the people.
You mentioned that you’re an adviser on Akoin. Do you have any financial investments in Akoin or Akon City?
I don’t believe so. I’d have to check. I have so much stuff. But I don’t believe that I have any economic interests in his stuff. I’d have to verify that. We’ll get back to you. I don’t believe that I have any economic interests. My interest is in helping him. He’s a visionary with big ideas that wants to help things in the world. If I can be of assistance in helping him make the world a better place, I’m all for it. I’m not motivated by money. I’m not running for office because I’m motivated by power. I’m running for office because I’m deeply, deeply concerned about our collective future.
You’ve said you’re running on a pro-technology platform. One week into your campaign last month, a New York appeals court approved the state Attorney General’s attempt to investigate the stablecoin Tether for potentially fraudulent activity. Do you think this will impact your ability to sell people on your tech entrepreneurship?
No, I think my role in Tether is as awesome as it gets. It was my idea. I put it together. But I’ve had no involvement in the company since 2015. I gave all of my equity to the other shareholders. I’ve had zero involvement in the company for almost six years. It was just my idea. I put the initial team together. But I think Tether is one of the most important innovations in the world, certainly. The idea is, I digitized the U.S. dollar. I used technology to digitize currency—existing currency. The U.S. dollar in particular. It’s doing $10 trillion a year. Ten trillion dollars a year of transactional volume. It’s probably the most important innovation in currency since the advent of fiat money. The people that took on the business and ran the business in years to come, they’ve done things I’m not proud of. I’m not sure they’ve done anything criminal. But they certainly did things differently than I would do. But it’s like, you have kids, they turn 18, they go out into the world, and sometimes you’re proud of the things they do, and sometimes you shake your head and go, “Ugh, why did you do that?” I have zero concerns as it relates to me personally. I wish they made better decisions.
What do you think the investigation will find?
I have no idea. The problem that was raised is that there was a $5 million loan between two entities and whether or not they had the right to do that, did they disclose it correctly. There’s been no accusations of, like, embezzlement or anything that bad.
[Ed. Note: The Attorney General’s press release on the investigation reads: “Our investigation has determined that the operators of the ‘Bitfinex’ trading platform, who also control the ‘tether’ virtual currency, have engaged in a cover-up to hide the apparent loss of $850 million dollars of co-mingled client and corporate funds.”]
But there’s been some disclosure things, that is the issue. No one is making any outrageous claims that these are people that have done a bunch of bad—well, on the internet, the media has said that the people behind the business may have been manipulating the price of Bitcoin, but I don’t think that has anything to do with the New York investigation. Again, I’m so not involved, and so not at risk, that I’m not even up to speed on the details.
[Ed note: A representative of the New York State Attorney General told Forbes that he “cannot confirm or deny that the investigation” includes Pierce.]
We’ve recently witnessed the rise of QAnon, the conspiracy theory that Hollywood is an evil cabal of Satanic pedophiles and Trump is the person waging war on them. You mentioned human trafficking, which has become a cause for them. What are your thoughts on that?
I’ve watched some of the content. I think it’s an interesting phenomenon. I’m an internet person, so Anonymous is obviously an organization that has been doing interesting stuff. It’s interesting. I don’t have a big—conspiracy theory stuff is—I guess I have a question for you: What do you think of all of it, since you’re the expert?
You know, I think it’s not true, but I’m not running for president. I do wonder what this politician [Georgia congressional candidate Marjorie Taylor Greene], who’s just won her primary, is going to do on day one, once she finds out there’s no satanic cabal room.
Wait, someone was running for office and won on a QAnon platform, saying that Hollywood did—say what? You’re the expert here.
She won a primary. But I want to push on if we only have a few minutes. In 2006, your gaming company IGE brought on Steve Bannon as an investor. Goldman later bought out most of your stock. Bannon eventually replaced you as CEO of Affinity. You’ve described him as your “right-hand man for, like, seven years.” How well did you know Bannon during that time?
Yes, so this is in my mid-twenties. He wasn’t an investor. He worked for me. He was my banker. He worked for me for three years as my yield guide. And then he was my CEO running the company for another four years. So I haven’t worked with Steve for a decade or so. We worked in videogame stuff and banking. He was at Goldman Sachs. He was not in the political area at the time. But he was a pretty successful banker. He set up Goldman Sachs Los Angeles. So for me, I’d say he did a pretty good job.
During your business relationship, Steve Bannon founded Breitbart News, which has pretty consistently published racist material. How do you feel about Breitbart?
I had no involvement with Breitbart News. As for how I feel about such material, I’m not pleased by any form of hate-mongering. I strongly support the equality of all Americans.
Did you have qualms about Bannon’s role in the 2016 election?
Bannon’s role in the Trump campaign got me to pay closer attention to what he was doing but that’s about it. Whenever you find out that one of your former employees has taken on a role like that, you pay attention.
Bannon served on the board of Cambridge Analytica. A staffer on your campaign, Brittany Kaiser, also served as a business director for them. What are your thoughts on their use of illicitly-obtained Facebook data for campaign promotional material?
Yes, so this will be the last question I can answer because I’ve got to be off for this 5:00 pm. But Brittany Kaiser is a friend of mine. She was the whistleblower of Cambridge Analytica. She came to me and said, “What do I do?” And I said, “Tell the truth. The truth will set you free.”
[Ed. Note: Investigations in Cambridge Analytica took place as early as Nov. 2017, when a U.K. reporter at Channel 4 News recorded their CEO boasting about using “beautiful Ukranian girls” and offers of bribes to discredit political officials. The first whistleblower was Christopher Wylie, who disclosed a cache of documents to The Guardian, published on Mar. 17, 2018. Kaiser’s confession ran five days later, after the scandal made national news. Her association with Cambridge Analytica is not mentioned anywhere on Pierce’s campaign website.]
So I’m glad that people—I’m a supporter of whistleblowers, people that see injustice in the world and something not right happening, and who put themselves in harm’s way to stand up for what they believe in. So I stand up for Brittany Kaiser.
Who do you think [anonymous inventor of Bitcoin] Satoshi Nakamoto is?
We all are Satoshi Nakamoto.
You got married at Burning Man. Have you been attending virtual Burning Man?
I’m running a presidential campaign. So, while I was there in spirit, unfortunately my schedule did not permit me to attend.
