That is strange. Usually it's an adult man pretending to be a teenage girl.

Makes sense, most people who post to sports fan sites have the maturity of a 13 year old girl and with a Jr. High reading level she'd be like a god.

"If you're going to make up an entire false identity, why would you make yourself into a shiatty person?"

You know how I know you are not on Fark?

Despite everything, the real villain here is the Patriarchy.

Impossible. There are no women on the internet!

You can be a 40 year old Belgian woman, or a 13 year old refugee from Syria, or whatever you want.  Come on folks when the story seems to be too good to be think it probably definitely is....

It's a little weird that she alludes to her harassment of women as acting like she thought that guy would act. The whole thing is pretty farked up.

I also a nubile, lithe 16 year old female gymnast with a thing for balding, fattish men over 40. Anyone want to meet? My parents are in Aruba for two weeks.

Over time, Ryan formed serial relationships with women who use Twitter to talk about baseball and hockey. Some women told me that he would get drunk and berate them; others told me they felt emotionally abused and manipulated because he would imply that he'd hurt himself if they didn't continue to talk to him. Ryan received nudes from at least two women I spoke with, one of whom said she did it because she was afraid he would hurt himself if she didn't.

Okay, I've had too much whiskey. Is this a paragraph in the middle of the story where we are supposed to pretend the alternate persona actually came to life? I'm too dumb for the article.

Alex and Ryan carried on a public relationship for roughly a year, during which time, she says, she became emotionally intimate with a person she thought was just a run-of-the-mill Blackhawks fan a couple of years older than her.

So.....a public relationship, a year in length, but they never met in person?  Or used a webcam to see the other person's face?

The Internet: Where the men are men, the women are men, and the children are FBI agents.

Phew...I figured someone found out that I'm a 68yo lesbian Phish fan from Arkansas and not a drunk 34yo Boston fan in Florida.

"JT Leroy"? Is the woman on the left of the picture actually Laura Albert?

Sure, sure. Next you'll tell me my female night elf wife on World of Warcraft is some sort of fat middle aged man or something.

/her name was Lucile and the only reason she hasn't visited me from Scandinavia is because her passport is under review

This whole story is insane, and I can't say I'm loving the "Ryan took over" and the comments which go on about toxic masculinity etc. This girl chose to act this way; the patriarchy didn't grab her keyboard and start typing demands for naked photos. I have to wonder WTF the guys around her were like to make her think this was how men typically acted, but of course that could be a post hoc excuse meant to grab sympathy. She's clearly pretty skilled at manipulating.

One other thing that gets me is that the women she was doing this to were old enough to be in college and yet somehow let themselves be pressured into sending naked pictures to a "guy" they never met because he was threatening to kill himself if they didn't. I never thought that I'd have to spell out the life lesson for my kids that "If a total stranger you've never laid eyes on demands ANYTHING from you and says he'll kill himself otherwise, he is LYING," but apparently these women believed it, so....

Unpossible.

But, in a way, aren't all sports writers teenage girls?

I have no idea if the "threaten to kill myself if you don't send pictures" has been verified by Schultz, or by any other means, but in the article, it says that only one female claims this.

Is it just possible that the female claiming this made this up after finding out she more than willingly sent naked pictures of herself to someone that turned out to be another female?? Sort of a "sender's remorse"??

Just asking the question. This whole story is f'd up.

Sure! In fact, I think we can help each other out. I just came into an inheritance and need an American citizen to help me bring it into the country. What do you think?

I think the main thing we need to note is that she was a White Sox fan and thus Hawk Harrelson is to blame.

16 hours and nobody pointed out the obvious math fail in the headline?  My fellow farker mathnazis, I am dissapoint.
"Teen Girl posed for 8 years..." how she managed to remain a teenager for more than 7 years is beyond me...

As opposed to mature sophisticated Rhodes' Scholars like us who post on Fark?
