Firstly, pedophilia is something that is legally actionable and should not be included in "callout" twitlongers without proof. I listened to Crazykoopa and asked for proof multiple times, but he insisted that all he had was accounts from several people. As pointed out, many named parties in that twitlonger were contacted and there was so no such proof presented. Just hearsay which is not only not proof but also legally inadmissable were this to be litigated. On top of that, I was the person who personally sought out the child in that situation to make sure he was ok. He himself denied anything. I hope this is clear to people. When you make a serious allegation like possible pedophilia, by linking the supposed predator to a well-known Smash pedophile Cinnpie, its extremely irresponsible to leave that allegation up when it comes out that the only evidence is hearsay and the victim denies it. On top of that, another allegation was made about her because of this first allegation in the twitlonger. And more unsourced rumors by other members of the community have continually come out with no proof. I tirelessly pursued these allegations as a SA survivor and none such things could be verified.
I empathize with people in these posts because being manipulated is a terrible thing. But how dare you talk about "impressionable children" when you're leaving up such a damaging accusation with no proof behind it? its clearly getting many impressionable people to call someone a pedophile without proof? You need to rescind it immediately, like I said on Discord. Do not use vulnerable children as props for your own grievances.
I do not care to rehash the personal lives of these peoples. I've listened to enough of it, more than I ever care to know, stuff that was absolutely triggering re: my own issues with mental and sexual abuse. I'm going to let you all know that this was not a one-sided issue. Read the twitlongers at length and see how much of this was based on reciprocation and when that reciprocation ended. There is so much toxic codependency going on in these stories.
I am done with this community after this. I am not going to name names but people on both sides of the issue have made this community unsafe for people. This goes beyond just this issue. The community is full of people on both ends who are hostile towards women, towards survivors of abuse, people who do not understand how consent works, and people who weaponize serious issues to their own selfish ends. I am tired of dealing with it.
