This Might Be The Creepiest Craigslist Post Of The Year
If 2017 has taught us anything, it’s that the world is jam-packed with predatory men. So many brave victims have come forward this year and outed high-profile abusers. It’s been a long time coming and people are finally listening. But it’s not every day that a man does the work of exposing himself as a giant scumbag in a public forum. Today is one of those days.
Lars Gotrich of NPR fame posted on his Twitter account about an incredibly creepy Craigslist post of a man looking to start an all-female band, specifically consisting of women aged 18-21. Unfortunately, the post was taken down, but have no fear (or anything in your stomach) because here are the receipts:
Is it possible to have the piss shivers and the douche chills at the same time? There’s absolutely nothing about this that can’t be considered creepy. You just know he strongly considered typing 17 instead of 18. I’ll bet his has the age of consent laws from several states memorized with back-up print outs in the glove compartment of his windowless van. “Aren’t afraid [sic] older rocker dudes telling them what to do.” I’m surprised he didn’t follow that up with “No one will believe you, anyway.” Think that’s as bad as it gets? TovH reader Tyler M. discovered this guy made a separate post:
Look at that pro equipment! He’s going straight to the top and he’s ready to take you young ladies with him! Just don’t tell your parents or the local authorities!
Those pristine guitars and amps really draw your attention away from the gross carpet, messy bookshelf, bottle collection, and a sad pair of shoes. Want to get even sadder? Let’s look at the third picture on this post:
What. The. Fuck. This just keeps getting worse and worse, like Nicholas Cage’s career. I really, really, really don’t want to know what happened, why this picture was taken, and why someone thought it was a good idea to post it. I guess a whole lot of questions could be asked about this entire situation.
Through his friends, Gotrich also posted what is allegedly this guy’s music. It sure does look like him in some of the accompanying pictures. Listen at your own risk. Be sure to wash your eyes, ears, and the rest of your body thoroughly afterwards. A TovH writer summed up this whole thing best with a little edit to one of the posts:
So what’s the lesson in all of this? There are lots of creeps out there. Some of them have instruments. Some of them stupid enough to create transparently predatory Craigslist ads for young women. Be smart, be aware, speak up, and shame these fucks into going away forever.
