Shunning him from the only community he has to turn to for support is not going to keep anyone safe. It's more likely to make him drink more. Putting him and others that he drinks around in danger.

At this point, DJ. You have no memory of the incident but you do have people trying to fill it in for you, regardless of how unpleasant it is. You have to take more responsibility for what happened. You know getting drunk is an issue for you. So you have to do something with that information.

I quit drinking
And it appears you have. I really hope you keep up with it despite all of this. I'm not going to shun you from my community. Anytime you want or need to talk, you know how to reach me. But you know how I feel about this topic. I'm giving you a second chance because even though you're hesitant to take full responsibility because of the events surrounding the situation, you've at least made a change in the right direction by removing alcohol from the equation.

Good move quitting drinking. It sucks you weren't told about this right away. I've been a piece of shit while blacked out before, and been lucky enough to have friends rub my face in it the next day. But you're not the victim here. Your entire post is about how this is going to hurt you, not how you nearly raped somebody else and had to be physically stopped multiple times, and we only have your word that this is the only time this sort of thing has happened. Not super reliable since you didn't know THIS happened.

You haven't admitted wrongdoing, you haven't apologized, or taken ownership of your actions. You haven't accepted responsibility, or really shown any personal insight at all. It's just "me me me". You owe that girl an apology, even if she doesn't remember it. Dude, you've acted like a predator when your inhibitions have been lowered. You need to address that part of yourself and really figure out where that's coming from, who you want to be, and what you're going to do about it.

For what it's worth, after it happened, he was also rambling about how "this has happened before" in kansas city

But that person is a danger if he's going around doing that. should he really be given a second chance ? Wouldn't taking a chance in him be putting people at risk? That doesn't really sound fair. Its just all about him getting a second chance, not about the safety of innoncent women or young girls. Just because people are homeless, doesn't mean they have to accept that in to whatever community they join. One doesn't have to accept a preditor in their homeless community anymore than in a traditional neighborhood. I don't see the balance in that.

If he's never done anything similar and is willing to give up drinking, I would personally give him a second chance. In this case it seems removing the drinking would remove the danger he could present, and now this is going to be common knowledge to folk in this online circle where he can be held accountable. How much more risk would he present if ostracized from the community and had no accountability to others or support to keep sober?

I will admit I'm a bit iffy as apparently by his own words this has happened once before, and because of the reply where he stressed that they had met the victim on tinder which came off as him trying to excuse his actions. If there are assault victims on the forum who are extremely uncomfortable with him being here those feelings are entirely valid and warrant some deep discussion on the best way to support both parties: concerned parties in feeling safe and respected, and DJ in recovering from a lifestyle and mindset that enables him to assault others. If that discussion results in him being removed from this community to protect vulnerable members that is what it is, but I hope either way that he's able to get support to continue his sobriety and be part of a larger community.

I've never even fucking been to Kansas City. Shit makes no sense.

Actually I have passed through on Amtrak once. Was there for a few hours to change trains. I never met anyone there and never even left the station.

I completely agree about owing her an apology but I don't know her full name or how to get in touch with her. And as far as my me me me shit I know that I'm not the victim but I hope you can try to understand how scary and shitty it is to find out that you're capable of sexual assault and have no memories of it.

Can you message her on your tinder conversation? Maybe figure out where her house was that you went to and send a letter. I'd be very conscious of wording when contacting her.

This happened so long ago we aren't matched on there anymore. She lives in an apartment so I won't be able to find her adress

But someone should have talked to me about it long ago. .

Dj, this was my fault. It was not my decision to just up and leave the next day, but as I was still wasted the next morning, I had to roll out with the others. Then I spent another several weeks in the RV, where I was taking some flack for thinking you were a decent dude who made a shitty mistake, instead of simply casting you out as an evil rapist in a black-and-white way. I didn't want to discuss the shit with you in such proximity to the others, where we were already having conflicts that originated elsewhere and in other issues. I just wanted that chapter of my time on the road to be over - so I kept my mouth shut and held on.

I was also scared I'd call you and you'd handle it poorly and deny it - like other folks who've assaulted people have done in the past, in my experience. It's not an excuse to not call you, but it did keep me from actually making the call every time I thought I should. Plus, Erin, who I spend all of my time with, was so traumatized by the event that speaking with you near her would make her very upset.

I should have made some time and given you a call, and probably within a week or two of that night. I'm sorry I didn't call you, open up a dialogue, and treat you like a friend instead of a "criminal specimen". Mostly, I was shocked.. You never seemed like the type, but now we know - and we know that you've got some healing to do which you goddamn better take seriously. You said to Zim "kick my ass if it's true" but getting your ass whooped is a lot easier than whooping your own ass into shape and unpacking that big dirty closet of shit inside ya that would push your subconscious mind to do that...

That's the real issue here, and it seems like you're taking it well.
If you ever need help with that healing, call me up.
Otherwise not sure what to say but sorry - sorry I didn't call, sorry we had to leave, and sorry the world you've lived in has you carrying a heavy load.

Read the post in the link from my one of my previous comments! This is why I, and apparently Hillbilly Castro, feel DJ is a prime example of someone who can benefit from reform, rather than ostracization. I've spent a good amount of time with DJ and I can tell you he is not like this when he isn't drinking. And as a rape survivor myself, I never felt unsafe when drinking with him. Rape is about control and domination and that is so not him. But being blackout drunk is not an excuse for touching an unconscious person, regardless of what your mutual intentions were before they passed out. I still stand by what I said. You're still apart of my community as long as you're trying to ensure it doesn't happen again.

@Notmyname I don't know you all that well dj which is why I avoided contact with you. You sent some pretty agressive text messages after asking me to talk to you about it which scared me after all things considered . I don't really know you and after going from a day of hiking to that I didn't know what to make of it. I also didn't tell your brother because he has a family and honestly still in that moment felt that turning him against you would have made you go off the wall. Was also counting on hillbilly to talk to you about this as he seems to know you better, which I'm hoping he will soon.

It's all good. I really don't have much else to say about this but I'm not mad at you. If I ever find some wifi that's strong enough to make a call I'll definitely hit you up. This whole shit is just so fucking crazy. Honestly i told Zim to fuck me up cause he chose to not call the cops. I feel like police intervention is bullshit like 90 percent of the time so I'm okay with handling it another way. I have lots of time to dwell on this and try to figure some shit out. I've been working on it pretty much constantly since this whole thing came up. And I'm connecting some dots, but there's a lot to sift through in the past 21 or so years of memories. Not even including shit I don't remember. I still consider you a good friend and I'll get in touch with you on the phone or in person before too long. Thanks for seeing through the bullshit and having some faith in me. It means a lot for real.

It sounds like you have a desire to change. That's a positive way to look at this situation, even if it's vapid. However, allow me to make this point very clear.

DJ, you are no longer welcome in or around my company. You will not be forgiven because what you did cannot be forgiven.

And honestly, shame on the rest of you. @Hillbilly Castro you talk of healing as if there is something traumatic that initiates this behavior. Would you stand by this for every man who commits sexual assault? Would you give this same benefit of the doubt to Brock Turner? What if he was your friend? I've been through more sexual trauma than I would wish on my worst of enemies and not once in my life have I ever thought to take advantage of somebody in a vulnerable state no matter how black out drunk I was. You're making excuses for a behavior that is inexcusable. I now know to never rely on you in the future when dealing with the topics of sexual assault and rape.

@LeeenPocket would you still be wanting to give him a chance of he did this to you? What if you were the one to be assaulted and then everyone else was all, he should be given another chance? How would that make you feel? How do you think his victim feels?

@zim its good that you came forward but make no mistake, this situation should have been addressed a HELL of a lot sooner. In these moments your conviction must be unwavering. You knew what was happening was wrong and yet you waited for Andy to take care of it, which never happened. I get that it was uncomfortable for you but just think of what that girl must be feeling. We owe it to the victim to bring justice to the offender.

@Erinn Oface, I've never met you in person like these others. I do not know who you are or what lies in your heart but what I do understand is fear. It sounds like you felt a lot of that during this situation and for that I am sorry. However, you shouldn't let fear keep you from coming forward when you know a situation needs to be addressed and brought into the light of the community.

@Notmyname, again what you did is unforgivable. If it were up to me I would ban you from this community without a second thought. THAT is how we keep a community safe from those who have the potential to prey on others, by not allowing them another opportunity within our metaphorical home. And should the community decide that is what they want I will do just that. You will never be forgiven.

As for the rest of you who were there, you all fucked up too. I hope you take the time meditate on that and make swifter decisions for the future.


I can only hope that girl has a community to support her through whatever she is feeling. I am sad to see ours this misdirected.

@creature I love you though I completely disagree with you on this.

Worst sins? Maybe:

  • When I was 13, I called a girl who liked me fat and ugly
  • Used racial slurs as often as 'fuck' in my early teen years
  • Stole from everyone I knew including my family to score heroin (5 years clean thankfully, just so there's no confusion)
I could go on, but I mean, there's no point.. none of these things even remotely compare to attempting to rape somebody.

It was clear to both Minnow and I from the moment we met DJ that he had issues with misogyny. He objectified every woman he talked about (eg. "she had huge tits"). So this is not surprising at all. - and a longtime friend of DJs (@LeeenPocket) is not going to be the best judge of character here. People don't drink themselves into being rapists, anymore than they drink themselves into being serial killers. We are talking about willfully assaulting someone who is unconscious. Intoxicated or not, there is no gray area.

Yeah I've been creeped out by this person since he posted about "wanting to choke a bitch" but that was ostensibly about shit that a consenting adult was agreeing to...

(can this possibly be treated as 'off-topic' after many of the last posts on this page?)

You're making excuses for a behavior that is inexcusable. I now know to never rely on you in the future when dealing with the topics of sexual assault and rape.

Well, there ain't a whole lot I can say to that. What do you propose be done with these folks? Let an angry mob round them up and execute them? Probably that would get time consuming, because there are so many of these people, and it would prove more efficient to run a few death camps. Or perhaps to run some colony of exiles in Antarctica. Since you asked, I'll say the two things that come to my mind about this way of thinking: First, I wouldn't volunteer to run the death camps, prisons, or penal colonies that your way of thinking seem to necessitate, because death and confinement are ugly jobs. Nor would I have someone else do these jobs for me. Second, since there are so many of these people - and similar types among racists, murderers, and other undesirables - I find myself forced to ask whether there is a system, culture, or some large circumstantial thing that pushes otherwise decent people to be rapists, sexual assaulters, etc.

Worth saying on that second point is that we live in the most violent and alienating human society that has ever existed. We've been human for 200,000 years. We've only known the world of bright Chuck E. Cheese lights, absolutely perverse and omnipresent free pornography, industrial-caliber drugs, total isolation and breakdown of the extended (and often nuclear) family, and an intense culture of discipline and punish, of glorifying cyber warfare and the fastest destruction of the ecosphere that has ever proceeded - for about fifty years. That's 0.025% of human history being radically different from the other 99.9% - this larger percentage being a time of hunting and gathering in societies that generally consisted of large extended families which supported and did not discipline children, where sexual violence, depression, and suicide are virtually always unknown. It makes sense that some of us have not adjusted well to this brave new world of civilized emptiness. I contend that the destruction of our original human culture has created a monster - both in the collective and in the individual sense, and that this monster is what we are at war with. Can we successfully fight this monster without destroying too many people? Sometimes, the logical conclusion of "unforgivability" may be required - execution - but personally, knowing what it is to kill another living thing, I know better than to jump to this messy conclusion too soon.
In Dj's case, he can see the gravity of the situation now - he has been warned. Now, he heals, or he proves himself to be unforgivable.

All of that seems too great and too relevant a tribulation to ignore. If my opinion marks me as a heretic or other undesirable, so be it. I'd rather be honest about what I think than hide it for the sake of appearing digestible and nonthreatening to the collective here. The article I posted a while back was written from the heart of the most liberal college in America, where the ideas you espouse were born - and its author saw how the logical conclusion of those ideas does not bring the community any closer to a livable world.

@Hillbilly Castro no, no penal colonies. Stop thinking about this in a macro sense.

I don't give a flying fuck what DJ wants to do to make up for his transgressions and it's not my responsibility to help him. Your friend sexually assaulted someone. That is not the kind of person we need in our community. That is the kind of fuck up you don't come back from.

What I'm proposing is he finds himself some other place in the world to find community because sexual assault can NOT be tolerated.


You can spout out theories and numbers all day but the fact of the matter is YOUR FRIEND SEXUALLY ASSAULTED SOMEONE. And you are forgiving of that. If you think there's a better solution than ostracizing then you can be the one to rehabilitate him, but seeing as you practically ignored the issue until it was addressed here that's more than likely not going to happen.

That is your problem here, you are all theory and no application.

I am "forgiving of that"? If a thing was not perpetrated against me, I cannot forgive or not forgive it in any meaningful sense. I can observe it, say how terrible it was, show my friend another way, and if he rejects this first chance, let him go.

Either way, this "be perfect or go to hell" mentality will, in the longrun, create a community of people that gets smaller and smaller, more and more self-righteous, and composed of people who value the aesthetic of purity more than actually having honest content to their person. I learned that in college, where there's a lot of commie groupthink and rabid witchhunting about this shit. Particularly in a community of itinerant unemployables, drunks, ramblers, anarchists, and howling fools such as our milieu, you'll find a tablespoonful in every ton of us to be crisp around the edges and in any sense "pure"... we've all hurt people in different ways, and maybe I'm an optimist, but if our communities matter to us it should only take one warning to shape up. If we refuse to give that warning, we'll shrink, and the hordes of scumfuck traveling kids will overrun us..

Anyway, I've said my piece. Dj's got the message, everyone else has been warned, and there's a lot to be learned on everyone's part. I myself won't drink liquor anymore, and will take damn good care to see these situations before they happen when possible.

This makes me so sad. And angry. DJ came off to me as such a good and sweet person. I wish I could get on the forgiveness bandwagon but tbh, I’m with @EphemeralStick on this one. I can’t look over such a serious offence. I’m a fucking ASSHOLE drunk, I mean ask @Matt Derrick @Shwhiskey Gumimaci @dumpsternavel ect, I am an unbelievable douche when I drink And I truly believe this points to serious flaws in my heart and personality that I’m constantly in the process of addressing, but I’ve never once committed a blantant example of sexual assault. As much as I enjoyed DJs company, I will never associate with him again knowing this.

I'm with @Hillbilly Castro on this one.

I understand that sexual assault has no place anywhere, and that one can never be truly forgiven for it.

But this idea of banning and shunning someone completely from a community (BTW is this A community, or YOUR community?) Because of a transgression, in this case, that the perpetrator has apologized for and accepted that he has a serious problem, is not the solution.

What will be next? And who will draw the line? I personally would like to see the people on this site that go around blatantly calling others racists, sexists, misogynists, nazis, ect. With their "higher than thou, I'm right you are wrong" attitude, stop what they are doing, but I will never call for them to be forcefully removed from this community, unless there is a poll, there is a danger to others, or the person refuses to stop, or endorses their behavoir.

@EphermalStick I respect you as a person, and as a moderator here, but I don't agree with you on this topic.

What Castro said about this causing a community to be more exclusive, and become smaller and smaller is absolutely right.

I believe that using others views and experiences as education and rehabilitating is much more important than swinging a giant ban hammer.

If certain people no longer want to associate with @Notmyname, I can understand, and that is their choice, but please don't make that decision for me. There is an ignore button for that.

And as far as public shaming is concerned, I'm all for it. But please, at least try talking to the person first beforehand.

Shaming can be useful, and it let's the community know about potential dangerous/shady activity, I'm for it. But I stand with my statement above.

@MattDerrik if this post isint appropriate, don't approve it. But I couldn't keep my mouth shut on this one.
