Recently a friend of mine, who is a disabled veteran, was asking a celebrity for an autographed picture. This celebrity not only refused to give this person, who fought to protect our freedom, the autograph they said that they and others were sick of this veteran being a stalker and asking for freebies.
Now, let me be clear on this, though I thought this celebrity was being an asshat for being so mercenary and denying this veteran his signature, I’m more pissed about this person daring to insult and libel this veteran by calling him a stalker.
The thing is I see this sort of thing a lot in the horror community, especially among low grade so-called actresses, poser scream queens, and zgrade horror hostesses. It seems like these inferior entertainers think that it gives them more creds if they can post on their Facebooks, My Spaces, and Google+s that they have lots of “stalkers”, because of course having stalkers means that you are really somebody among the horror social elite.
Now don’t get me wrong, there are actresses and celebrities or even minor celebrities who have had real honest to goodness stalkers. I, myself, had a woman who got me fired from my job, tried to burn the lawn on my house, tried to run down me and my niece, and left my cat skinned alive and dying on my front porch. This bullshit lasted for seven years and I ended up suing her ass over it. Also, look at Heather Langencamp (A Nightmare on Elm Street, New Nightmare) and her year of terror facing a stalker who was threatening her family. Or how about Adrienne King (Friday the 13th) who spent years in constant fear of a stalker, so much so she left the United States to get away. I love to see what Heather and Adrienne would think about these fucks calling every Tom, Dick, and Harry a stalker just because these people do something these bitches don’t like. One reason I thoroughly RESENT Elissa Dowling and Michelle Shields is because they both stabbed ME in the back then had the incredible nerve to call me a stalker, which is so totally unfair and out there in regard to anything I actually did to them. Oh, and given the FACT that I had to deal with the real thing it makes me want to blow every time I think about it.
In regard to Elissa, who I had been friends with for three years, she decided that she was going to sell me out to Bloody-Disgusting so that they would promote her crappy career. The thing is she actually got on messageboards and chats, under her nickname Razorected, and talked smack about me as a writer and against Cory Stevens film, which I was promoting at the time. I decided she needed to get a taste of her own medicine, except I was going to stick to the truth. I went around the internet and copied every review I could find of her films and reposted them all together in multiple threads around the internet under the title “Avoid like the Plague”. Ok, that wasn’t exactly nice. All her reviews were negative and showed her as a horrid actress who did twelve films with the worst director in horror, Ulli Lommel. Still, I didn’t write the reviews and they were honest third party reviews of her work…therefore the truth. Still, people including Elissa herself called me a stalker. Sorry, posting the truth isn’t being a stalker it’s being truthful. Now, onto Miss Michelle Shields. Michelle called me a stalker because she posted a reply to a friends post using her “secret” profile (Michelle M Shields) she created for her so-called “real friends” and I accidentally (I repeat ACCIDENTALLY, not that I was looking for it) found it, got curious and checked it out. On this profile Michelle says that her other profile (Michelle Shields) is for people she “uses” for promotion. Well, people, I was of course not happy to learn this. For one thing I had known Michelle for ten years and had considered her a friend. Also when I was at the first Days of the Dead in Indianapolis Michelle was hanging out with me and The Wolf Pack a lot during the conventions and was even kissing on me on three separate occasions (This information is supported by the entire Wolf Pack in The Eric Morse Project radio show, The Truth). So, basically she played with my feelings in order to get me to support her. And, yes I supported her until I found the profile and also found out from that very profile that Michelle had a long term boyfriend (of course one I didn’t know about when she was shining my teeth with her tongue) because she had conveniently kept the information to herself and always posted her status as single on her other profiles. Anyway, I posted a non-gender, non-focused on Michelle note on Facebook about what people thought of actors and actresses who had long term relationships and played around with other entertainers or even fans at conventions. I had confided about the situation with Michelle to my friend, Henry, and he ended up calling Michelle out on it on a comment to the note. Michelle blamed me and blocked me. I apologized to her and she unblocked me a few days later. What I hadn’t known at the time was Michelle went off and royally started talking smack about me while I was blocked. She called me a stalker, a fat pervert, and even tried to make out that I had mental issues. She even said at the time that if I even tried to apologize for the situation “she would make me pay.” And she did. Even though I tried to be nice and bury the hatchet, so to speak, after she unblocked me she acted like a total bitch to me. Then some asshat started giving me shit and saying I and my crew never hung out with Michelle at Days of the Dead, though it was seen by everyone at the convention, and at one point Michelle said aloud in front of the Fangoria table that we, The Wolf Pack, were the coolest guys at the convention. Anyway, I got sick of the bullshit and posted a picture of Michelle hanging out at our table. Michelle posted on the picture that she wasn’t hanging out that she came over because Derek needed to ask her a question. In the picture she was clearly standing in front of me and looking towards me. So I posted that that was bullshit and that there were other pictures and videos showing her at our table a lot at that convention. She blew her stack called me and my crew delusional liars and blocked me again. And, according to a friend she once again insulted me on her profile, called me a delusional pervert, and a stalker again. So, guys out there who have sucked face with Michelle at a convention, if you brag and talk about your experience you’ll get called a delusional pervert and a stalker as a thank you for your snoogling. For you see, her boyfriend is stupid enough to believe everything she says so he remains totally clueless to her convention antics to this day…
The crux of the problem is that now a days women use the term stalker in the same way as the term sexual harassment. Again, I’m not saying that sexual harassment doesn’t exist. The truth is it does happen unfortunately and I feel bad for the women who go through this, but there are others, like people like Michelle Shields in regard to the word stalker, that use the term sexual harassment as a weapon to use against men.
I recall two blaring examples of this…One happened on the TV talk show Montel. Montel Williams was talking about sexual harassment and had a woman on the show who had actually been sued by six men she had worked with for falsely making false sexual harassment charges against them. Montel ended up asking her a couple very revealing questions. He asked her if, say, a guy she found attractive and had known at the office came up to her and casually asked her out to dinner would that be sexual harassment? She laughed and said of course that wasn’t sexual harassment. Then Montel asked her the same question but said it was a guy she didn’t find really attractive. She said that was definitely sexual harassment. Montel asked why, because after all the guy wasn’t being rude or aggressive and was just asking her casually. She said the guy needed to learn a lesson, not to bother her if he doesn’t meet her standards. I found that amusing. Another, similar situation happened to a teenaged boy who asked a popular girl at his school if she’d go with him to the prom. She went off on him and made an accusation of sexual harassment to the school. This got into the local paper and a church group in the town posted a picture of the kid and put him on their sexual predator website. That was in 1998 and the church refused to pull him off the website. Since then the guy’s family has been in a constant fighting this bullshit in court and the poor guy needs to register with the police if he moves, has been rejected for jobs, and deal with the rest of the stigma of being called a sexual harasser simply for asking a girl to the prom….nice.
So, here is the moral of this blog….unless you are being threatened and constantly being bothered or followed, or some person you work with is really being pushy and rude about wanting to get together with you or is expecting sexual favors for promotion the person in question is not a stalker or sexual harasser. So, if this is the case, you need to shut the fuck up and stop wrongly accusing these poor people as such. You are not cool or fabulous for doing this shit. You are just plain wrong. So get a fucking clue people…
