If you're behind on the Jeffrey Marsh drama, here's a little refresher. Marsh has been
by many, even peeps who don't necessarily seem conservative, of grooming behaviors on TikTok. Like
convincing children their parents have failed them
and don't understand them, and encouraging them to join Marsh's Patreon where they can talk privately. About things not allowed in the comments section of TikTok. So there are a

I'm a danger to any parent who selfishly and egotistically insists that a child not be themselves in order to fulfill their parents' ego, their parents' legacy, their parents' wishes.
