Now, Sandeen starts off by claiming to have been cyberbullied, and cyberstalked three times and offers links (note, links as in plural) to document this. Oddly enough, they are all the same link. I don't know if he had simply become so angry he was not thinking, or if he thinks his readers are that ignorant. He then says something that shows just how insane he really is...
I now understand that people I’ve never met in the brick-and-mortar world actually have despised me enough to have seriously planned, and in one case actually accomplishing, real harm to me in the brick-and-mortar world.Okay... Well, what actually happened was there was discussion of preventing Sandeen from attempting to, and then actually committing a criminal fraud that he had bragged he was going to do. He basically lied to a court and claimed he had changed his physical sex. He has not. But having said the above, he goes on to tell, in detail, how he tried to cause me real harm. He wanted, in his mind, to have me fired from a position he imagined I had. Actually, I was never a "staff member" of my church. I was, for a while, the editor of the church newsletter. I did my turn, and now it is someone else. Sandeen's little harrassment had nothing to do with that.
Hmmm, let's look at that definition of cyberstalking he posted.
Sending multiple e-mails, often on a systematic basis, to annoy, embarrass, intimidate, or threaten a person or to make the person fearful that she or a member of her family or household will be harmed. Also called e-mail harassment.In another words, exactly what Sandeen brags about doing. And what Sandeen is clearly hoping others will follow his example and do. And again, Sandeen admits to this...
I wanted the ministers at her church to know how one of their lay leaders was acting outside of the church towards people the church was supposed to be welcoming towards, so I wrote the church — and as I said before, I cc’d her on that email. I did nothing behind her back.Sounds like he wanted to make sure I was annoyed, embarrassed, and/or intimidated.
Let's compare here... I write a blog about issues affecting transsexuals, which includes the silliness pushed by transgender extremists like Sandeen, among others. Sandeen is very active in pushing an agenda that I rather vehemently oppose. I express my opinion on these issues. Further, my blog welcomes anyone who wants to comment, and has only one rule...respect privacy. The only people I have ever blocked have been those who attempt to engage in the sort of harassment that Sandeen is guilty of. Granted, the one time that Sandeen attempted to comment here, his post went to spam, which I was not even aware had been added in an update, and I did not see it until long past the day it was sent. Sandeen tends to prefer posting drivel of the sort we see here, from blogs that are heavily censored.
Now, Sandeen goes on to try to defend another of his attempts to intimidate me. He threatened to use some photos that were obtained by "Willow" Arune through deceit and provided to a vicious cyberstalker, the one who prompted Sandeen to contact my church. This person also contacted Suzan Cooke. To Cooke's credit, she declined to engage in such behavior, having more ethics than Sandeen. Ironically, Cooke does not brag about how she is so like Martin Luther King, Jr.
Jennifer claims I don’t own the copyright of my image; she claims it’s owned by the Huffington Post.Actually, no. Sandeen wrote me, and demanded I remove the photo. I declined to be censored by Sandeen (do you think Sandeen, or Mr. "Cristan" Williams, would agree if I demanded that they take down the private information that Sandeen has posted?). I pointed out that the photo had no copyright, and besides, Sandeen himself had made it public. Mr. Williams has copied content from my blog, without permission (not just quotes, but graphics as well). It is called, "fair use." Sandeen, by the way, has gone far beyond that here. He pointed out that the web page said "Copyright, Huffington Post" and I responded, "You are not the Huffington Post." I never said that the items where owned by them. In fact, I said the opposite.
Now, for example, I have no idea how Sandeen got the photo he used in his post. It is one taken of me some years ago, by a guy I dated a couple of time, and was used by me in various places. It is not one of the one's Arune stole (hey, unlike some people I prefer truth).
Now, as to Sandeen's "meat puppeting" (funny, given I never mentioned that term...) that is kind of obvious. His columns rarely rate more than a few comments. Rather suddenly, there seemed to be a chorus of very similar remarks, including a number from a supposed radical feminist who attacked me and another transsexual, including as Sandeen puts it, misgendering us (funny, Sandeen never said a word) but this person defended Sandeen who has also cyberstalked a number of lesbian women. Perhaps I am mistaken, but I will go with Occam's Razor on this one...
A few final thoughts...
I am supposedly obsessed with Sandeen, but which of us put what was obviously quite a bit of time and effort into searching the Internet for detailed information on someone? What I write about Sandeen is based on reading his posts on LGBT Weekly, and Pam's House Blend. And more recently, Twitter. Hmm, folks be warned...reading Sandeen's public writings is stalking him in his twisted mind. I actually started my blog, largely in reaction to his, and other transgender extremists efforts to hide dissent.
I would welcome anyone to my church, and in fact, we have had transgender people visit. Funny thing...I generally don't take political issues to church with me. And that is, really, what this eventually is. A political disagreement. Sandeen wants to rend asunder the fabric of society. I oppose his efforts to subvert gender. He just takes it a bit too personally. And that is just his reaction to my speaking out against his ridiculous demands for society. As to what else I might do, that is none of his business as it does not directly involve him. Suffice to say, I won't be donning a uniform I am not entitled to wear (he mocked women, and the US Navy) and chaining myself to the White House fence. Or otherwise making a public fool of myself. Unlike him, I do not seek, or appreciate attention.
I will no more pander to Sandeen's delusions than I would those of the gentleman who I had the misfortune to have sit next to me on the bus the other day. He started ranting, to anyone who would listen, about some person on the bus who he imagined was his enemy. I'm not sure which passenger it was, but he was quite agitated. I tried as best as possible to ignore him, but I also made sure the driver was aware (we were both sitting in the front) and I very discretely made sure my pepper spray was in my hand...just in case. He finally exited the bus without incident. Both he, and Sandeen, have lost touch with reality. Fortunately, as someone who knows Sandeen pointed out this morning, Sandeen is 350 miles away.
What I will do is continue to speak out, and draw attention to Sandeen's foolishness. And that foolishness includes the fantasy that he can control me.
Update: Well, it seems that Mr. Sandeen chose to update his article, so I guess I should correct his new lies:
I think I need to make a point one more time because Jennifer is still imagining that I’m conspiring with others to cause her harm. Specifically, I’ve never conspired with someone named Willow to take any coordinated action against Jennifer. In general, I’ve never done any conspiring with anyone at all at any time whatsoever in any matter that relates to Jennifer Usher. As much as she may believe I have engaged in some coordinated conspiracy to cause her harm, she’s absolutely wrong in that belief.This, of course, is a classic straw man argument. I did not say that Sandeen was "conspiring" with anyone. To repeat, some time back, a particularly nasty cyberstalker sent messages to several bloggers trying to get people to attack me by contacting my church. He was hiding behind anonymous servers, and would not do his own dirty work. I suspect he feared legal action. Suzan Cooke posted about this,and how she would not go along, Only Sandeen actually, as far as I know, was the only person stupid enough to actually do what was asked. The person cyberstalking me was not Willow Arune, though Arune was a supporter of that person's efforts. It was hardly coordinated, more of a clumsy scheme by a person who had previously been obsessed someone in Canada. The person has apparently since disappeared. I don't know if they have died, been imprisoned (there is reason to believe this person had a history of criminal behavior in Nevada, or perhaps finally got on some serious anti-psychotics.
