We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.
They need to read up on BDSM period. There is a lot more to the lifestyle than just hair pulling. In BDSM if the rules of Safe, Sane, and Consensual (SSC) then it falls into a different category. If you ask most Dom and Sub they will tell you 50 Shades leaned more on abuse than anything else. Sorry for getting off topic but they irritated me with their comments. BDSM is not just kinky sex it's a way of life for some people. The fact that they can try to equate what Vic did to BDSM is freaking irritating that's not apart of the life style. Okay, I'll jump off my soapbox now.
Then they won’t have someone else to be angry with. This whole Vic thing is a mess I honestly don’t think he has a case. From what I’m getting there are things that we the public don’t know that might or will come out in court that could add to his guilt. All his fans/lickers or whatever they are called this week are banking on him winning is that he’s a “good christian” and his “good voice work”.
Hi All, Waves to the room I want to say thank you to everyone who has shared their experiences on here. After reading all 170+ I just wanted to say my two cents. I've never met Vic and honestly before this all came out I had no desire to meet him. I know it's going to sound crazy but I've always found his voice creepy so any anime he voiced I found it hard to watch. After seeing a picture of him I cringed, seriously. I'm not sure many understand how sexual assault/harassment happens and there isn't a lot of proof to show it. A woman or man does not go into a room and expects to be assaulted, especially when they consider the person a friend (I speak from experience). I don't think some think about the doubt, denial, hurt, and hate the person feels after they've been violated by someone they trust. And it's not about hugs this goes far beyond that. I've seen the pictures and even if they were consented the way he pulls the girls close to his body, and as a mother of a teenager I cringe. He hugs them as if they are his girlfriends and not a fan of his work. I shake my head every time I read he's an Italian and they are affectionate. Take it from someone who lived in Italy for close to ten years, they know their boundaries when it comes to hugging. There is nothing wrong with being affectionate with your family, but these girls are not his family and I can see and hear the eye rolls of the stans reading this. THEY ARE NOT HIS FAMILY even if he considers them to be one. Thank you for letting me have my say.
