Corbin Fishergate: A massive clusterf**k

“I have been scared to death every since I heard about this. I live with my family and if they find out about this, I feel I will end my life. My family senses something is wrong, they keep asking me what has happened, I have not been able to eat and I am paralyzed with fear.

If a letter comes, they will know immediately it is true and they will know this is what the terror they have been reading in my face is, I will not be believed if I try to say, like they have offered that, I was looking at ‘straight’ porn.

I will be thrown out of the house, with nowhere to go and no options. I realize I was wrong but I was not profiting over it, I never uploaded a torrent, nor did I try to seed after it was done so I thought it would be okay, I do not have the money for any settlement and this will ruin my life. … If get sued, I will end my life first.

I am not a U.S. citizen but now I live and study in [the] U.S., and I can’t afford any trials. I won’t let my parents know my secrets, and I am afraid of losing my friends.

The day I am out is definitely the day I am dead. I never know that this can cause so much trouble because in my limited knowledge none was sued for just downloading without profit issues. Now I am wrong. I haven’t downloaded anything after i got to know this matter.”

What else is there to even say about this?

    Let’s think here. First there might be underage kids that have their material. Than they do not as well as they have already had people take them up on their offer. well it kinda sounds like that they have found the under aged and just wrote it off so they would not get into trouble 1 for them allowing by directly or indirectly allowing them to gain access to their content and 2 to keep their greedy little shits out of the ringer them selves. CF needs to rethink this entire situation. I know he was a teen in the closet once and found a way out and to be better by the way of porn. i think that cf is getting greedy and maybe in debt because people are now spending money in ways that they need to to help them survive rather than supporting CF’s out landish spending habits.

    Are under-age youth going to *steal* porn on the internet? Yes, probably.
    Is Corbin Fisher dealing with this issue in a productive way? Not at all.
    Is it ok for adults who own businesses to bully gay youth? Absolutely not.
    I will *unlike* Corbin Fisher’s Facebook page and remove myself from their email newsletter and spend my *gay dollars* elsewhere.
