Families Find Creepy Porcelain Dolls (That Look Like Their Daughters) On Their Doorsteps

Porcelain Dolls

Over the course of this week, 11 families in the same neighborhood in San Clemente, California, found creepy porcelain dolls on their doorsteps. As if that in itself weren’t enough to fuel indefinite nightmares, each doll resembled a girl who lived in the house. The girls who received the porcelain doppelgangers were about 10 years old, and most of them attended the same school. The Orange County Sheriff’s Department investigated the situation and found that the culprit was a “female adult” who lives nearby and goes to the same church as many of the families. She seems to have meant well and claims that leaving the dolls was an act of “goodwill.” As the story gained attention, another parent of a five-year-old girl came forward and said wooden dolls with interchangeable clothing were left on the family’s doorstep two weeks ago. There’s no word yet whether the same woman is behind this act. So. Creepy. [The Wire] [Image via Twitter]

I Am Really Not A Fan Of “Celebrity Cat Impersonator” Betsy Bushytail

Celebrity cat impersonator Betsy Bushytail
Eeeeuuughh ...

In theory, this video of “celebrity cat impersonator” Betsy Bushytail giving us her best Maru should be something I enjoy. It sure sounds like something I’d enjoy, right? But I don’t. I hate it. It’s creepy and horrible and feels like something I should not have seen, like I’ve been violated or am violating in some way. Since one cannot go about unseeing things they have already seen, the only option that remains is to go with the next best decision and share it with you. [via Buzzfeed]

“Self Taught” Hypnotist Tried To Make A Client His Sex Slave

Talk about creepy: a 40-year-old “self taught” hypnotist in the UK is facing a prison sentence for persuading a woman under his trance to show him her breasts. Timothy Porter, who served in the military until 2012, violated a woman who trusted him to give her hypnotherapy for anxiety and weight management. After they’d had several sessions together, Porter did a session in the woman’s home while her husband was away and insisted on a deeper hypnosis than they’d done before. As reported by the Daily Mail UK, Porter sat down next to her on the couch and, according to prosecutor Jonathan Walker, kept repeating “No mind, no will of your own” as he started the trance. He told the victim that he was her master, and she was his sexual slave. Porter talked the her into showing and touching her breasts while he performed a sex act on himself. She eventually broke out of the trance and called a friend, scared, who called the police.

Stealing credit card information and social security numbers is so passé nowadays. The new fad of invading privacy online is to actually watch unsuspecting victims, or, I’m sorry, “slaves” as these hackers like to call them, through their own webcams.

That’s right, ladies: internet hackers have just found an alarmingly inventive way of invading your privacy by actually watching you through your own computer. Cue the goose bumps.

  • [UPDATE, May 2: BareMinerals has apologized for the signs, saying they did not "translate" well, and adding "Please rest assured that these signs will not be used going forward on the Go Bare tour." — CollectiveAction DC] Now here’s a corporate stunt that failed to land: the makeup brand BareMinerals had “DC fraternity boys” (their own phrasing) hold signs at this weekend’s Nike Women Half Marathon in Washington, D.C. Sounds innocuous, right? Well, the signs read stuff like “You look beautiful sweaty” (creepy!) and “Cute running shoes!” (Um, thanks?)  If what they wanted was encouragement, they could have chosen slogans that don’t focus on how you look — especially since “You look beautiful sweaty” totally sounds like some creepy comment a dude would make catcalling you. Getting people to cheer on runners would have been a sweet idea. But “frat boys” telling you how attractive you look while running a marathon? FAIL. We must always make the frat boys happy, mustn’t we? Who planned this event, Rebecca Martinson? [Collective Action DC, Facebook.com/BareMinerals]

The good news is that YouTube has pulled an account belonging to “John Zippy,” a man who was surreptiously filming women’s legs on the subway through a camera placed inside a Starbucks cup and posting the videos online.

The bad news is the YouTube channel “New York Subway Girls” had 35 videos posted on it before it was yanked, featuring 102 women whose body parts were being filmed without their consent. Gross. And the New York Police Department is unable do anything about the vids — unless a woman filmed specifically complains about sexual harassment — because filming in public is not illegal.
