So what with all the drama going on right now I decided to share some of my personal experience with Josh Macedo.

I should also note that I’m 21 years old, so far from underage or a teenager.

I first sent him a message umm probably this past May or June basically saying “hey, we live in the same area we should take advantage of this and hang out!” We added each other to skype and began talking about just friendly things, llke our favourite pizza toppings and stuff. He eventually told me I made him nervous, which was sweet, and then that he liked my lips. I thanked him for the compliment, it didn’t devolve into anything else, and we both went to bed (it being seven in the morning).

Our subsequent conversations did become quite sexual. I’ll admit I was very attracted to him, both physically and emotionally, and I was glad he seemed to feel the same way. We talked quite sexually explicitly, which in most cases I fully responded to or even initiated, although there was more than one occasion where I was not comfortable sharing my thoughts that were of a suggestive nature, like I can flirt with the best of them but I’m really uncomfortable getting into specifics. Oftentimes I’m not even thinking in specifics really, so I had to make some shit up as he kept asking me for details *shudder*

So I responded with things that were decidedly unsexual, as I was very uncomfortable with the current situation.

Here’s another example that I would think clearly illustrates my discomfort with what he’s asking for.

This was probably the last exchange of a sexual nature I had with him. It was right after I was diagnosed with anorexia nervosa, which he didn’t know about, but I was obviously not in the mood to talk dirty as evidenced by my refusal to tell him anything and my short responses. I felt I had to keep up appearances, as I had been so flirtatious before.

Here he is sending me paragraph after paragraph as I barely respond, eventually attempting to derail the subject by saying I was hungry.

Also I received two pictures of him, the first in text message completely unsolicited

and which only after he seemed to consider that sending me this would come across as “too strong” or “aggressive”;

and the second via Skype, also unsolicited.

As I end this post I’d like to rehash the fact that I am a legal adult, so in that regard he did nothing wrong. What was wrong were the situations in which he disregarded my obvious discomfort in seeking out his own sexual gratification, as well as the unsolicited and unwanted sexual pictures he sent me.

Also, a disturbing thought has crossed my mind, in that although I am 21 years old I’ve often been mistaken for 15 or 16. It’s disturbing to me that he seems to continually go after girls who are either underage or who look like they are.

I posted this originally under a read more but decided that, with the direction this is all taking, I would post it for more people to see in full. I know some of his apologisers are still out in their bowtie wearing ranks so I’ve taken a preemptive measure and shut down my ask box. As a disclaimer: I’m not claiming I was sexually harassed by Josh Macedo, I am not saying I am a victim, especially in comparison to the girls coming out in the tag, but I am posting this to support the evidence that he creeps on underage girls knowing that they are underage and that he makes people feel uncomfortable. I didn’t want to do this 24 hours ago but the hate girls have been receiving is infuriating me and this is a relatively neutral point of view. I admired Josh - I really fucking respected him - and we even! come from the same hometown! And he now lives near my older sister! So I had plenty of pleasant connections with the dude, and never had an issue with him personally, except now I do.

So, without further ado, "I did not lead Josh on or entice him in any way whatsoever and he still made me feel uncomfortable, the story:"

People attacking sweet-bitsy for coming forward are the scum of the universe and should be eliminated immediately, especially those who are saying he led her on - because a lot of other girls didn’t, and I didn’t either, and I got creepy replies on my selfies too, while I was 16, beforeJosh knew that he and I both were from Edmonton, and that I had family in Toronto. So before, when he first began to follow me without knowing me at all except through the content on my blog, he was doing it. I believe Josh followed me after my TED talk made the rounds again in September and October, so that was pretty innocent, and I appreciated the acknowledgement from such a popular and influential user. But we never discussed it.

My age was on my blog, my evident minor status very clear. I was pretty naive about that stuff last year and once I became more aware, I also became more uncomfortable with it. He rarely reblogged from me, or even liked my posts, but the posts he did like were always sexual in nature, your average “teenage tumblr user without a boyfriend” kind of posts. Since I’ve deleted my blog and my posts multiple times I can’t give an extensive collection of “receipts” as people are calling them, but I do remember the first time it happened, and thankfully I remember who had reblogged this (click) selfie:

Please note that he was 24 and I was 16, as this took place two weeks before my seventeenth birthday.

So do I believe the girls coming forward? Yes. 100% 

When you get those creepy vibes from a dude, and you get these “coming ons” without ever reciprocating, you’ll understand. They were younger than me and even more naive than I was. They didn’t know how to say no without either a) becoming a target or b) losing his friendship. It’s a very, very hard position to be in when you do not want any sexual or romantic relationship with a person but you still want to be his friend. We should all be aware of that considering the success and then hatred of the idea of the “friendzone.” Bitsy said it was illegal, she said it was uncalled for, and he continued. He was 24, and she was underage.NOT OKAY. NEVER OKAY.

I don’t feel comfortable anymore. I am rethinking every single thing he said to me, every ask I have gotten from him, and I’m getting really fucking weirded out. And the fact that it’s been about 30 hours and he hasn’t responded is disgusting. He cannot say anymore that girls are trying to ruin his reputation, because I have nothing against Josh Macedo, and in fact admired and respected him quite a bit. Hiding from the evidence is cowardly and vile. I wouldn’t have posted this before because even I wanted so badly to doubt, but video proof, Skype logs, the actual NSFW images, and my own personal anecdote has led me to this conclusion.

I want you guys to see this and I want you guys to stop doubting the girl who came forward. I have the utmost respect for her and the other girls beginning to share their tales. I’m not calling myself a victim because what happened to them reached a point far beyond anything I could have imagined and they truly are victims, and they do not deserve the backlash they are receiving. It’s also very interesting to note that none of the girls circle in the same Tumblr groups. This wasn’t calculated. It was just Josh crossing the wrong person, for the last time, and it blowing up in his face.

Thank you.

Ladies and gentleman, last Valentine’s I received this slew of messages from Josh Macedo and even as I told him I didn’t want to do this, that I was underage, and I didn’t like him that way, he continued to try and coerce me to do something sexual with him—and when I didn’t he sent me a partially nude image of himself, seen HERE as the image in the bottom left (NSFW)

Even seeing his username now makes me sick to my stomach and it’s given me panic attacks and thoroughly disgusted me. I am all too happy to see his kingdom burning to the ground.

Happy Friday the thirteenth!
