Was surprised to see this on Gawker just days after reblogging Sophia Katz’s piece detailing her personal experience. I’m really pleased to see this is being taken seriously. It makes me hopeful that we can actually hold offenders accountable in situations where the justice system often falls short or outright fails. Transparency alone has consequences for people who sneak around in social groups and hurt the people they know.

The first time Danielle and I hung out, I yelled at her after she jokingly said Tony’s Theme was the best Pixies song and I thought she was being serious

Not sure why she ever wanted to hang out again, but I’m sure glad she did because now we’re super best pals.  Man, that was like seven years ago

The first time Danielle and I hung out we also discussed Pixies songs and it also was the same night that I made deathpunch.

Aw man you guys this is making me so warm and fuzzy I can’t handle it

This man, Conor Fowler of Baltimore, MD, is a rapist. He raped me and has raped other women I know. He is violent, manipulative, dangerous, and should not be trusted. He is not under any current legal investigation and is still a threat to women in the Baltimore area.

Stay away from him and advise everyone you know to do the same. I suspect he has attacked many women and will continue to do so any time he feels he can get away with it.

It has taken me nearly six years to build up the courage to share this in such a public way and I am doing so in hopes of reaching out to other women he victimized who have not yet had the support or avenues needed to come forward.  I want to do everything in my power to stop him from hurting anyone else, but I can’t do this alone.  Please share and feel free to add commentary.

If you know someone Conor assaulted who wants to talk me, give her my contact information or request it through my ask box if you don’t know me in person.  You are not alone.

In case you missed it

If you see him around town kick him in the dick for me thanks in advance

The plot thickens?

This is getting really weird, but in a way that is so unbelievable and far-fetched that it’s putting me at ease about the backlash I’ve been fearing since coming out with this. Trying to convince your remaining friends that this is all an elaborate conspiracy (to accomplish what? i dont really know) against an innocent target (who is, by his own admission, NOT innocent) is an unusual way to try and save face. You could have apologized, or convinced him to apologize, and try not to hurt people this badly again. You could have even created a more plausible lie. That would be shitty, but it would have at least made more sense. This is just really out there and I’m starting to wonder if you actually believe it. 

You could have jumped ship years ago. It’s been sinking for ages. You had plenty of time, and you still do.

A note: Mike Suica and I have not been plotting anyone’s downfall

We have been helping a very good friend of ours tell an important story that will make the city of Baltimore, and especially our circle of friends, safer. Conor Fowler IS a rapist and no amount of excuses should convince you otherwise.

There are currently false narratives being spread that reek of rape apologist mentality. We ask that you simply ignore them and inform others of the truth when they are brought up.

Can’t believe this even needs to be said but you never know what kind of shitbait people will go for.

Magnetic Brain Laser day 2/30 is today. At worst this will bankrupt me for no reason. At best it will laser away my depression permanently and take the edge off my anxiety like the ECT did for two weeks. Not sure what to think.

Good luck bud. I hope it helps.

The anxiety dust settles and you start to feel really empty and worn out and a dull constant sadness because that whole ordeal sucked the life out of you and now everything seems futile. It’s hard to tell if that means you’re back to normal or if this is just some sort of rebound period following the Big Event.

This is basically exactly how I felt late 2010 when I quit my life as I knew it to get away from the Bad Thing in the first place. You would think making the right decision would be stupidly easy but it’s still a lot of fucking work to adjust when you’ve been avoiding it so long.

apparently an elderly homeless man was stabbed in the head near the bus stop at Hickory & 36th. No breaking news (that I could find) yet. The two boys who committed the crime got on a bus, but have been apprehended.

What the actual fuck, Baltimore. There has been too much crime lately. We need to work together to make our home city safer… 

Shit! I used to live right over there it’s like a nice area too. People are terrible.
