    Am I the only one heavily distrurbed by this "cute female counterpart" ? In the "Hate and Shame" video, Alex is supposedly trying to convey his personal, hellish experience of harrassment and bullying, online and ALLEGEDLY in real life as well. There was no reason to use a cute young anime girl as his avatar, because Alexander Mahan is a grown, 30 year old man. Not a cute teenage girl (like most of his fanbase consists of), who would probably have reacted much differently to the situation. The fact he's highlighting his "cute female counterpart" on Reddit makes his ridiculous manipulation that much more obvious. He used this avatar solely to gain more pity, because he knows an anime high school girl is a more loveable figure than a balding, malnourished 30 year old shut-in obsessively monitoring the Internet and streaming video games for hours on end. The fact no one seems to have picked up on this very basic, but still toxic manipulation is quite worrying. At least it was more subtle when he used a cute anime boy as an avatar for update vids, you could call it a stylistic choice...
    It's not even the first time Alex has shown a tendency to depict himself as an anime girl. Remember the gross genderbend art he commissioned from Mulberry, of him with giant breasts? He fetishizes the concept so much, I wouldn't be surprised if it was part of the reason why he's obsessed with sexualising girls in his game. This man is such a creep, there are so many layers to his perversion...

    In one of her videos she recorded after the whole jail incident, she dressed like Venus and baked using European-brand ingredients. The milk she used was identified as a Swiss brand on lolcow. The kitchen she used was also noticeably European-like. That's what prompted people to say she was deported from Korea. Sadly I can't link it anymore, as all videos on her channel are either deleted or privatized except for three interviews she did with Venus on TV.
    Thankfully, it was archived on Kiwifarms, second post on this page: https://kiwifarms.net/threads/margaret-margo-palermo-venusangelics-mom.580/page-328
    Some screencaps of said video:

    She also posted pictures of European-looking places on her IG around this time, also theorized as Swiss:

    That's a pretty big assumption, let's not forget Marge didn't grow up with internet access and presence... And seemingly had a stable childhood in rural Europe with a relatively put-together Christian family (from what we know of them online). And yet she's still very infamous and destructive (just look at her thread here). Venus is a mix of her messed up genes AND circumstances, which adds another layer of crazy, not to mention she's still young with barely any experience of real life (since she was sheltered all her life until she ran away to Japan). Comparing her to 40-something year old Margaret doesn't seem fair.
    That's no excuse for Venus' behavior though. I try seeing her side but she gets increasingly grosser with each thing she posts under her new sexual persona. Her comment about having sex work fantasies in Kindergarten makes me sick. You don't say things like that, even in Japan she would at best be seen as a weirdo. I wouldn't be as upset if she didn't have kids looking up to her, but she does and it makes this whole situation even worse. There's no way she doesn't know how it'll come accross. At this rate, her only supporters will be vulnerable young girls and creepy men, a dangerous combination.
    It makes you wonder what she's up to irl...

    She's gorgeous, with or without make-up. Sinclair is such a textbook toxic narcissist. Seriously, did he think releasing bareface photos of his ex would shatter her reputation? That says more about him than it does her. I'm glad that she's healed from his abusive views enough that she won't give him the satisfaction of seeing her ashamed of her own skin.

    I also think it's gross, but I can play the devil's advocate for the "legal child porn" in regards to Venus.
    1) Since Margaret took over Venus' online presence when she was 12/13, Venus has been groomed into thinking doing softcore porn for grown men is okay and something to be proud of ("empowering"). There are videos of her as a tween entertaining men on a japanese streaming site (I think it was niconico? I don't know where to dig them up, it's probably posted on an old thread). It doesn't excuse it, but it explains why Venus is so desensitized to these issues that would shock Westerners, and how insensitive she is in general.
    2) Japanese culture is really, really gross when it comes to what they call "lolicons". Basically pedos. I don't mean to generalize all of Japanese men, but it's pretty much accepted here that a woman's worth is directly correlated to cuteness, youth, and naiveté/ stupidity. It's reflected in their media depictions of women in anime, movies, talkshows, J-pop and yes, porn. Any woman older than 25 is considered old by their standards, google "christmas cake girl". Cuteness and sexyness are intrinsically linked in Japan. Venus only reflects the culture of her country of residence.
    Don't get me wrong, I find all this completely wrong, and I wish it wasn't as normalized as it is. But yeah, I don't think Venus would've ended up this way if it wasn't for her upbringing and cultural background. What worries me the most are the young girls exposed to this bullshit by someone they look up to and being told this is ok. It's not.

    I respect your opinion and arguments, but I don't agree with this. Let's not pretend that having a job that entirely revolves around pleasing random men empowers feminine sexuality and destroys sexist taboos. Prostitution is the oldest job in the world, and sex work has ALWAYS been for the sexual gratification of men and the male gaze, at the expense of women. And let's not even touch on the human trafficking and the vast majority of sex workers doing what they do as a last resort and/ or with no other choice. And all the risks involved in the industry, even as a freelancer. And the fact it's basically impossible to move on to something else once you're in, because no employer who googles your name will hire you once they know about your past. I just can't see sex work as empowerment, especially not for young isolated girls who also happen to be desperate for any kind of attention and have admitted to having mental illnesses.
    Feminine sexuality isn't and shouldn't be shameful, in the sense that women are just as entitled to explore their body and preferences as men are, as long as all parties are mentally sound, consenting adults. If a woman with complete financial freedom, great mental health, self-confidence and an exhibition fetish decides to become a camgirl after serious consideration, then I won't have a problem with that. But it's not the case for Venus, for all the reasons already enumerated in this thread.
    Also, LOL at the therapist supposedly supporting this endeavour. I totally see a Japanese professional recommend sex work to a mentally unstable patient with a history of eating disorders and body mutilation.

    Let's not forget OF takes a 20% cut from that, and whatever taxes Venus has to pay on her income in Japan. It's still more than her YouTube money though.
    Still, is it really worth abandoning her faithful kawaii fanbase to pander to old creeps who probably know her from her tween years? The comments on her Instagram are still polite and respectful for now, trying to make her feel good about herself without upsetting her, but I doubt it'll stay that way if she really goes down that route. I don't think she could handle perverted men becoming her main audience.

    Tbh the only way YandereSim could possibly be saved (it won't, but let's imagine Alex has an epiphany) is if someone competent (in terms of coding, organisation and time management) takes the wheel and massively reduces the scope. Most of the lore added by Alex is not only edgy and cringe, it's also completely useless in terms of gameplay and just creates plot holes that break any immersion.
    Abandon all the superfluous ideas like the town, the Yakuza, the Saitou family lore (ALL OF IT, BURN IT ALL) and the conspiracies. Make it what it should have been all along before Alex went insane with the fame. A normal (maybe socially awkward) high school girl falls in love with a boy, becomes a yandere, and finds original ways to get rid of people she sees as competition (don't make everyone fall for Senpai, it's cringe and the pedo implications with the teacher/ nurse are problematic). parents are not mentioned except maybe to say they're out on business trips. None of that looney tunes/ hitman bull, just make it a normal school with only plausible ways to kill for a regular student. No poison, no putting people on fire (seriously?), No kidnapping (except maybe Senpai as an ending). You can make all characters anime tropes and stick to that.
    The exposition dumps in the tapes and the sisters' conversations are NOT fun. If you cannot show it, don't tell. Or make a visual novel. We could do without and lose nothing.

    As we thought, a pretty substantial amount of her fanbase are put off by the change. She's gonna alienate so much of it  Why Venus whyyy?
    All the people attacking genuinely worried fans are super irritating. Even expressing concern is now framed as sexist/ anti-woman... If they're so involved in Venus' life they should understand why someone with her past and alleged mental problems shouldn't get involved in sex work

    I think you're onto something. Maybe he's not outright attracted to men, because he feels too insecure in his own masculinity to admit it to himself (messed up but likely; notice how he doesn't have any male friend). Plus, isn't it strange how all his girlfriends gradually lost their feminine attributes (long hair switching to short or shaved, girly clothing switching to unfashionable boyish sportswear, binded chest...) While they were under his control? It's like he takes pleasure in turning them into boys (not men, notice how Kai never talks about themselves as a man or manly, which adds another layer of fetishism to his "transition"). Idk I feel like it's just another creepy aspect of his personality.

    So is she just gonna pretend her fanbase has completely switched from young girls to horny creeps in just a few weeks? I'm not too emotionally invested in her content and I still feel shocked at the brutal 180° from kawaii lifestyle vlogger to perverted e-girl. I can't imagine how her most dedicated fanbase is feeling. From the comments I see it looks like they're on board whatever she does, but I doubt they'll continue interacting with her the way they did before... Like, I don't see how teenage weeaboos can participate in this kind of Q&A.

    Honestly though, it's no use trying to apply realistic terms to Yandere Simulator. Alex didn't create this world and its characters thinking like a professional writer. He's a sheltered man with stunted emotional development, desperate for praise and recognition. All characters in Yandere Simulator who aren't ripoffs from somewhere else are either ridiculous caricatures, or disturbing vessels for him to project onto. Add to this his unrealistic views of women and teens in general, his sexual fantasies and Madonna-Whore complex and voila, that's Yandere Simulator. It doesn't get any deeper than that. Literally any mentally healthy person could come up with more realistic and complex characters and scenarios. That's why his fanbase is composed almost entirely of teenagers or younger. Then they literally grow out of it, because the game is already almost a decade into development and it leaves plenty of time to discover his shady past and better games/ animes.

    Guys, are you really sure you want to buy anything, knowing your hard-earned money is going into Margaret's pocket? You're entitled to do whatever you want with your own $ of course, but personally I wouldn't touch anything SHE touched with a ten foot pole.

    Holy hell, putting the edited VS real version of her face next to each other really highlights how creepy this style of editing is. She doesn't look human at all on the right, she looks like a doll (and not in a good way). Like, her contacts makes her eyes look fake, and her skin is so smoothed it looks like plastic instead of human skin (but that's a global Instagram issue, bc WHAT ARE PORES AM I RIGHT). Reminds me of an MMORPG character. It's like she can't let go of her living doll obsession no matter how hard she wants to, and still holds herself to these ridiculous standards.
    At least on the left I feel like I'm looking at a person. She's still a pretty girl, despite looking like she just rolled out of bed for some reason (is she wearing pajama pants under that coat?) and if she manages to control her alcohol problem in the near future (optimistic, I know) she can avoid ending up a clone of her mom and preserve that natural beauty.
    Too bad it looks like she's heading in the opposite direction... Sad, but you can't help someone that doesn't want to be helped, especially if they're toxic (which Venus is, now that she has full blown BPD). She'll need an electroshock to make her realize what situation she's in at this point, and for some people it involves losing everything... I hope it doesn't come to this point, she suffered so much already, but I'm not holding my breath.

    The whole situation is suspicious as hell. Onision's first instinct is to record himself calling 911 to cover his own ass instead of rushing to his fallen infant daughter, and his first words to the police/ whoever interviewed him is about HIMSELF and how someone screwed HIM over in the past (accusing him of attempted murder). What normal dad thinks this way? He is so calculative about the whole thing. That's at best narcissistic, at worst psychopathic, and at this point we know what Onision is.
    About the daughter supposedly being disabled: if she can be described as curious and climbs on top of furniture, then it looks like a normal 2 year old to me. Her being nonverbal at that age is no indication of anything, except maybe neglect, since babies who lack interactions with their parents obviously don't have many opportunities to learn how to talk. It's just sad and infuriating all around.
