Trans LifeLife is Greta Martela's con, and has shilled for Zoe Quinn's CON

In an earlier article, I described a fraudulent "transgender suicide help line" called Trans LifeLine, run by one Greta Martela, and I elucidated on its recent uncovering as a  scam that preys on the vulnerable and frightened members of the transgender community, promises them interventional services should they be considering ending their own lives, and instead fleeces huge amounts of money from the gullible, puts it in the pockets of the founders, and they proceed to blow the money on all sorts of questionable personal expenses that cannot be properly accounted for.

Meanwhile, the "hotline" is but a mere shell at best, horribly understaffed at the best of times, and there have been confirmed reports from former callers that the service proves incredibly hard to reach even at the best of times, and many of these reports have been openly posted in response to the TLL on social media networks such as Twitter and Facebook.

The response to these accusations has been anything but mature. Greta has confirmed, via a post on Medium no less, that they paid a visit to the owner of the Kiwi Farms website (who they have publicly accused of murder) while fully armed in what they describe as an attempt to reason with its founder, and what their founder describes as an attempt to intimidate him and his family, given his mother was present at the time.

Worse, when a former caller of their service ended their own life, they immediately tried to blame the Kiwi Farms for perpetuating the tragedy, even though one of their own members actually tried to prevent this person's suicide by contacting the authorities prior, a fact that meant nothing to Greta, who via official TLL channels continued to push this narrative.


(Except for the names of Greta and the widow of the deceased, all the other parties names are whited out of the above linked screenshot. The latter has been included due to having received word the widow wishes to spread the word about this incident via trusted sources.)

When even the widow of the departed divined the truth for themselves, they asked TLL to stop spreading such a patent falsehood, an act that not only got the widow unpersoned by TLL, but also got them attacked by TLL and its defenders, who even had the audacity to attack the widow, as if she had played a role in their former spouse's suicide as opposed to be a grieving victim of a tragedy.

So far, TLL has already proven to this point to be pretty vile even without outside help.

However, in the midst of all these heinous acts, they would go on to shill an even more insidious scam:


The "Crash Override Network" (abbreviated, rather appropriately, CON) is another scam that claims to be an organization to help prevent online harassment, hence the link cited above to their Tumblr, but who have provably been linked, from founder Zoe Quinn on down (formerly Chelsea van Valkenburg), to having been engaged in determined efforts to commit the very acts they decried, including doxing, harassment of perceived enemies, and even attempting to prop up the scams of other interested parties whom they saw as useful auxiliaries to their own misdeeds.

It bears mentioning again Greta has openly admitted to visiting someone's personal residence while fully armed to have a "peaceful discussion", has called on people to attack a website that can exonerate itself as innocent of bloodshed (quite the reverse in fact, one of their own members even reported a suicide notice) while spreading a false narrative they were guilty anyway, and even attacked a grieving widow and used the body of their departed spouse for their own greed.

And now we have them citing another organization with no credibility and guilty of all the crimes they allegedly fight in an attempt to gain a moral high ground.

Needless to say, much like CON met public disgrace when its own sins came to light, the TLL is an organization that abuses the trust of the transgendered community in the pursuit of greed and the ego of its founder, and in my view should also be disgraced, preferably by the truth of their indiscretions being laid bare before the public.

PSA: If you are the victim of internet threats and harrassment, please do this to protect yourself

If you find yourself the target of a stalker or harasser who has threatened your life and plans to post personal information about you or related parties that could bring you or anyone you care about harm, do the following.

1. Leave a report with your local law enforcement about the incident. Even if it comes to nothing, you can sleep easy at night knowing the police are aware you have been threatened and you can provide them updated information should your situation change at any time.

2. Leave a report with the FBI or the equivalent organization in your country of residence. If the party in question has done these acts primarily via means of the Internet, you can report their activities here.

https://www.ic3.gov/complaint/default.aspx

3. Keep archives of all the threats you have received and be prepared to add them to any existing reports you have submitted or provide them to proper law enforcement officials. DO NOT respond to them, merely archive them if at all possible, and keep copies of everything.

4. Do whatever you can to avoid antagonizing or responding to further abuse from the harasser. If they are stalking you via social media, do not respond to their provocations and ignore any attempts they make to further threaten you. Report them to the appropriate parties at these services and have them deal with it.

5. Keep as much personal information as you can safe from their reach. A common tactic of those who attempt to stalk people is to spread their personal information far and wide to deny them privacy and to have them live in fear as a result, so if you can prevent them from discovering your real name, face, and location especially, take any and all means needed to make sure this information does not fall into their hands.

6. If you believe you are in imminent danger, dial 911 or whatever your country's equivalent service is.

Trans Lifeline: A So-Called Transgender Suicide Help Line That Is Really A Scam To Line It's Owner's Pockets

NOTE: In the interests of protecting certain parties who are currently being harassed by the subject of this article, I have elected to withhold their names from this article, especially since they have a young child and are still in mourning.

I have recently gotten wind of another idiot transgender type who is running a massive scam, and while I'm a tad leery to fire any shots across the bow of this con artist scheme given they have already threatened at least one person at their own home at one point, the fact this scheme has real human lives it has affected has roused my indignation.

Worse, this scam has at least two dead bodies to its credit directly, and a few more people are dead because of indifference and/or incompetence, and that number could rise the longer this scam goes unnoticed, so it's time for me to shine a light on Greta Martela's scam parody of a suicide help line for the transgendered, otherwise known as Trans Lifeline.

Trans Lifeline is supposed to be an alternative to standard suicide hotlines for those who are planning to end their own lives, tailored for the needs of the transgendered population, and is registered as a non-profit organization. However, examination of their public financial information has turned up some worrying discrepancies, and coupled with other public information as found on the personal and professional social media accounts of the owners and operators as well as related fora, has led many to believe their organization is little more than a scam in the vein of Anita Sarkeesian's Tropes vs. Women, except in Sarkeesian's case, at least Sarkeesian can point to having actually done more for her money grab, and unlike Greta's scam, at least Sarkeesian doesn't have people dead as a result of their grift.

A Tumblr post by someone who was greatly concerned about this organization taking advantage of the transgendered was posted to warn other about the dangers posed by this scam organization.

In response to this post, which brought up many worrying facts, the founder of this scam responded with this Medium post.

I had become aware of this due to browsing random threads on the Kiwi Farms one day and seeing this organization discussed in one of their threads, and while I was fairly convinced the evidence against this organization was pretty damning even before reading the response, I was pretty sure they were caught red-handed when I read the reply, so, since I wanted to see just how badly they were triggered by having a light shone on their organization, I left a polite dissent to their official reply here.

I made it clear I had biases up front but wanted them to consider taking the advice I gave them to focus less on appeals to emotion and more on cold, hard fact to clear their names, and from what I was given to understand, my response was hidden from view, the founder of this organization disabled viewable responses to the story on Medium, and I got some desultory commentary from the white knights for this scam on social media, to which I frankly could care less.

However, I had my say, I considered my input sufficient, and decided to go back to passively observing the situation.

What spurred me into deciding I needed to post this message would be the death of someone who had at one point contacted this hotline and had decided to end their own life anyway. Their widow had been led to believe by certain rabble rousers (such as Greta and another party who has a noted grudge against the Kiwi Farms) that the Kiwi Farms had goaded their now late husband (who had apparently regretted transitioning) into killing themselves, and quickly learned quite the opposite was true when they arrived there.

In fact, they found out that one of the members of the Kiwi Farms had called legitimate authorities who could intervene in the event of a suicide to save the now departed's life (in direct defiance of Trans Lifeline's apparent policy to NOT intervene on some strange concept of  "consent"), and had briefly discussed this party at one time but had decided not to pursue the matter.

To mine and the Kiwi Farms horror, the widow was smeared as a monster even though all they wanted was the facts straightened out and to be shown a little compassion during their time of grief, which the Kiwis nigh unanimously elected to do, and the attacks on this poor woman grew so vicious they were unpersoned when they asked Greta and their compatriots to cease and desist spreading when they knew to be falsehoods.

The widow mentioned they needed expenses to pay for the funeral, but was reluctant to ask anyone for them, which the Kiwis elected to either contribute to or spread the word to others who might wish to contribute, and Trans Lifelife only elected to later do the same to avoid being perceived as the enemy, and even Sarah Nyberg elected to do the right thing at one point and also spread the word about this poor woman's plight.

To my understanding, Trans Lifeline is doubling down on all the crap they have pulled to this point and have attempted to get Kiwi Farms' site verification rescinded, as well as repeatedly accusing them of having blood on their hands when all objective evidence at hand suggests quite the reverse.

And so, I have decided to pen this article about the situation to raise awareness that Trans Lifeline is more about it's own greed and public image than providing a legitimate service to the transgendered, transgendered people would be much better served by contacting more legitimate organizations like the National Suicide Prevention Hotline or the Trevor Project, and if I get put in the line of fire for criticizing these people like the poor widow of someone they refused to help keep out of the grave, then so be it, but I cannot sit idly by while a scheme that is defrauding innocent people of their money and lives is in progress, and I hope that I can be of service to it's eventual cessation.

And to the widow of the recently departed, my sincerest condolences for your loss, and my prayers go with you and your child.

Update:

If anyone would like to donate to funeral expenses for the departed, please do so at this link:

To everyone pissed Hillary Clinton lost: Calm down.

It's been a few days since Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump in the 2016 US presidential elections, and WOW, the sheer amount of incoherent rage is amazing.

For the record, yes, I voted Trump, and I just hope when he assumes the presidential office he does a good job.

That out of the way, I'd just like to address some of the most retarded shit butthurt Hillary fans need to STOP doing:

1. QUIT MAKING DEATH THREATS AGAINST TRUMP!

Obviously, it's criminal and you will piss off the United States Secret Service, and I've already reported a few of these idiots to them.

But more importantly, let's go along with the hypothetical that someone actually did kill Trump. If he dies, Mike Pence succeeds him, and even if you think Trump is Hitler, he's NICE compared to Pence. Trump doesn't give a shit about LGBT rights at worst, while Pence is an open enemy of them, to the point he believes in that abusive nonsense called "conversion therapy", and while I voted for Trump, I'm at best slightly above room temperature for Pence, and I really think even Hillary fans would come to the realization we'd be a lot worse off on the "social justice" side of things than they would be with Trump.

Another reason it's stupid is because it's merely making him look sympathetic. He's kept his mouth shut for the most part, except to decry the violence and rioting going on by the sore losers. All his haters are doing is making him look like a victim of a bunch of psychotic domestic terrorists.


2. EVEN HILLARY CONCEDED DEFEAT, DO THE SAME, DAMMIT!

Like it or not, Hillary gave an official concession speech, and did so very maturely if you ask me.

I was never a fan of hers, but I'll give her credit, she was rather gracious in defeat, far more than I expected, and if her fans don't want to make her attempt to accept her loss look hollow, they should try to follow her example instead of ripping open wounds she tried to close up.

3. TRUMP IS NOT A DICTATOR YOU IDIOTS!

I've seen a ton of hyperbolic nonsense about how Trump being President means he'll start nuclear war, open death camps, and be Hitler 2.0.

That's hilarious, since Russia said they wanted to explicitly AVOID that and work with us after Trump won, the only people who have confirmably been violent thugs endangering others are those sore losers who are freaking the fuck out over not getting their way, and Trump is the same guy who publicly condemned the Pulse nightclub massacre and even made public his support for the LGBT crowd, even holding up their flag in solidarity.

He's not a fascist bigot by any means, and those who believe this are insane.

4. THE ELECTION HAS PASSED, THE APOCALYPSE HAS NOT HAPPENED.

If you believe the panicky shit the butthurt losers are saying, the sky should have been raining blood and hellfire as hell came to earth on the heels of Trump's victory.

Obviously, this hasn't happened, and the only actual terror exists in the heads of the angry madmen who just can't accept the electoral process worked as the US's Founding Fathers intended.


In short, to everyone who is still becoming Chicken Little over Trump being our 45th President of the US:

CALM THE FUCK DOWN ALREADY!
