ex-Champion, True Identity singer accused of being 'child predator'

Jim Hesketh and Champion
Jim Hesketh singing for Champion circa 2006
Overnight a Seattle, Washington resident named Charlie Stone came forward to accuse Jim Hesketh, vocalist and co-founder of defunct Seattle hardcore band Champion, of being a child predator. According to Stone, when she was 14 years-old, and Hesketh 26, he attempted to lure her and a friend to his house to "play around in his bathtub." Stone says that hours afer sharing her story, roughly a dozen other females contacted her to relay similar experiences with Hesketh. You can read Stone's Facebook post in its entirety below. Jim Hesketh was a member of Champion through the duration of their existence, from 1999 until their break-up in early 2006. Hesketh then went on to sing in ON, and later True Identity. Notably, True Identity had been scheduled to play Rain Fest 2016 but apparently dropped off without explanation (according to Stone, it was due to these allegations). Additionally, Hesketh also recently shut down his social media accounts without public explanation.
This is the scariest thing I've ever had to write about on Facebook. When I was 14 I wrote and edited my own zine. It only had two issues, it was embarrassing, but mostly because I was 14 and was trying too hard to be "cool." I had the opportunity in writing this zine to interview one of my heroes: the singer from Champion, Jim Hesketh. I was a vegan straight edge kid who loved hardcore and was from Seattle, my dreams had come true. What started out as a 14-year-old kid nerding out over talking to her hero, swiftly turned into inappropriate sexually charged conversations, and an attempt to lure me AND another 14-year-old friend to his house in the middle of the night to wear bathing suits and "play around in his bathtub." I was 14, he was 26, and he knew exactly how old I was. That's not normal. Jim Hesketh is a child predator. If I could go back and change what happened next, I would. I never went, from fear of the wrath of my mother in breaking curfew, but I wish I would have told her. Jim Hesketh would have been arrested ten years ago. I didn't, because I was a kid, and I thought it was my fault. I knew that I wasn't cute, that I was terribly awkward, insecure, and that this felt like "positive" attention, but again, I was a kid. So why did I wait this long to say anything? Because I was scared. Every day I read articles of people slut-shamed or gaslighted for coming forward. I was afraid that no one would care because I was a kid, and because while he was highly valued, I was of no value. He was in one of the biggest hardcore bands ever, and has been a beacon to all of the XVX kids out there for years. I was afraid because people would rather tear about victims of trauma than to see their idols fall. I didn't say anything because when I had my own band, people told me, "Charlie, don't talk about being sexually abused as a child, because it makes people uncomfortable and feel bad for you." How would they then respond to me saying something like this of their hero? We live in a system that does not value our girls. If it did, I wouldn't have to be sharing this today. Someone would have called him out years ago, in fact, many people would have called him out years ago. I didn't think that it would have to get to this point, I thought I was set, sharing it with a chosen-few, crossing my fingers that I wouldn't have to put myself at risk like this, but not enough happened. Jim was out of his band, True Identity, they had pulled their merch off of the internet, he wasn't allowed to play Rain Fest, or even attend, but people still didn't know. I had to come forward because his response to being called out was terrifying: He cried, apologized, offered to go to therapy with the mystery girl that he "ruined the life of," and de-activated his social media accounts. We don't know how deep this rabbit-hole goes. By not resisting this behavior, we are encouraging it. By ignoring it, we are putting his status above the innocence and lives of girls. Coming forward, I only hope that any other girls or women who fell victim to his whims will have a chance to know that they are not alone and that their voices matters. They matter. I don't want to ruin Jim Hesketh's life, but I know that if I never said anything, knowing that I should, I am potentially putting other people at risk. It terrifies me thinking that there could be other girls out there who weren't too afraid to break curfew, and who is to say that if age didn't matter to him then, why would it now? That haunts me. If we can't talk about this within a radical subculture, when can we? I don't have the answer to this, and I can't decide how anyone responds, taking a moment and trying to be brave is all I can do. I am saying this today, because for years, Jim has had the worst rumors about him, and I didn't want to be another one. Edit: Since I posted this 2 1/2 hours ago, I have received 10-15 accounts of girls being assaulted, preyed upon (when they were under age), and raped by this monster.
To our knowledge, there have been no criminal charges levied against Hesketh to date. Obviously, we can neither confirm nor deny the validity of Stone's claims. UPDATE: True Identity has now issued a statement regarding the matter, confirming that they've parted ways with Hesketh and subsequently disbanded:
"As we're sure many of you have read, some very serious allegations have been brought forward against our former singer, Jim. Needless to say these allegations have shaken us to our core. "We parted ways with Jim immediately upon learning of these allegations. We 100% support Charlie, and extend our utmost respect and support to everyone who's been effected by this in coming forward. "We made an immediate decision, instead of looking for a new vocalist - to dissolve True Identity. We have responsibility to disconnect the music we've made from any hurt that has been caused during the tenure of this band. Hardcore is our home, we have a responsibility to make it better for everyone who chooses to be a part of it."

Unfckable hate nerds come out in defense of a rapist because at least he had sex with someone even if it was without consent. Poor pieces of shit have to live vicariously through a scumbag like Jim because no woman wants to spend time with these losers in their mamas basement. All of you defending or making light, calling this woman a bitch, should just borrow your emasculating older brothers military or pig issue gun and blow your brains out. You disgusting man babies.

Yeah because just tossing a beat allegation into someone's lap with no evidence is enough to get someone fcked up for life. You expect this guy/his band is gonna show up? I guess a FB post is enough to convince social justice warriors. Evidence or STFU

This guy may or may not be a rapist- However, an essay about how he inappropriately hit on you garnering all sorts of "I am so sorry this happened to you" responses is a little much. You were not assaulted. You were not beatd. Stop trying to gain sympathy that you are some sort of victim. A dude creepily hit on you- your life is not ruined, and if this gave you mental anguish for 10 years, you need professional help.

Charlie is hands down one of the most stand up individuals anyone has ever met and not a single person who has had any form of interaction with her can say otherwise. She lives her life with the highest level of integrity, honesty, and compassion.

anonymous1 hour ago For all anyone knows, this could be some deranged scene skank that's been trying to get him to date her for years and he wants nothing to do with her so BAM, she drops a beat grenade in his lap and says good luck and peaces the fck out. There have been 10-15 OTHER ACCOUNTS of him being creepy and predatory. Are you suggesting that all of these women are in love with him? Typical excuse, probably only the millionth time I've heard that one.

FSU boys here. Elgin James will be returning to Massachusetts for a week to make a "Boston Beatdown III." We will make sure that Jim from Champion is featured in this video along with Crowd Deterrent, Posi Kids, and all the people that you guys love to see FSU assault for no reason. #hxcgangviolence

anonymous 6/8/2016 1:08:15 PM

oh, someone was shitty to you TEN fckING YEARS AGO, better hold that grudge and ruin someone else's life because you were too much of an insecure piece of worthless c*nt who couldn't just get over with it. Hope that c*nt faces REAL beat someday so she will have something to complain and get tumblr reblogs.

anonymous 6/8/2016 1:10:06 PM

Why do these always come out like a decade after the fact? Same thing happened to Michael Gira

anonymous 6/8/2016 1:10:47 PM

Jim's big mistake was never closing the deal. The key is to bang the girl and then slut shame her out of the scene. Even if she is underage, the herd mentality to punish the less popular person involved will override the pedophilia. This works in cases of acquaintance beat as well, not just statutory. I believe it is known as the "Mission Hill Jetsam".

anonymous 6/8/2016 1:11:34 PM

this must be the year of hardcore girls starting drama with what happened years ago.

anonymous 6/8/2016 1:12:02 PM

did this fcking clown really say that he hopes she faces real beat one day? Not all allegations and accusations are made by someone that was treated "shitty" ten years ago. go fck yourself for saying that. Human fcking dumpster fire. unbelievable.

anonymous 6/8/2016 1:13:36 PM

Ian Heavy Chains here. When I'm not busy trying to sculpt a jawline out of thin neckbeard or engaging in cowardly beatings, I, too, like to pressure underage girls into awkward, floundering sex. If she is young and shaped like a meatball, then I'm all over it. However, not literally, I pop off like a sad slide whistle.

anonymous 6/8/2016 1:18:21 PM

^ YOU ALL HAVE GOT TO BE fckING KIDDING ME. It has been 10-15 years since this has been going on. Everyone up here knew about it, and people that say they don't are lying to you or themselves.

anonymous 6/8/2016 1:19:01 PM

Joe HXC here. Enough is enough. If this girl has a problem with being hit on, then she should be uglier -- like me. I'm the type of ugly that boardwalk caricatures of me actually look better. I've never been hit on in my life. Unless being punched by my wife for having cyber sex with fat MidWestern girls who wear Attila shirts to sleep in their child size beds in rooms with all white composite board furniture counts at being hit on -- then yes. I have.

anonymous 6/8/2016 1:19:48 PM

Specifically, 01-04. I was immediately involved. I was also 15 when Jim made out with me. He was 21 at the time. He did not beat me, but he did park the car down the street from my parents house and sneak in. He knew what he was doing was wrong. Everyone knew. Everyone loosely joked about it, but many of us were also very young at the time. Hardcore is a young person's scene. He was one of our heroes, but that doesn't take away from the solid fact that he was an adult and we were minors (...)

anonymous 6/8/2016 1:20:08 PM

(...) fck everyone else that tries to deny this. This is just how it is. I am not posting my name because I feel sad that this is happening, and I am not willing to put my own emotions on the line so a bunch of strangers can tear my personality and credibility apart. THIS IS THE SAME REASON IT'S TAKEN PEOPLE 10 YEARS TO TALK ABOUT IT. THIS IS THE SAME REASON MOST SEXUAL ABUSE GOES UNREPORTED.

Asking underage girls to go back your place is definitely sketchy and not cool but unless he actually took a girl back to his place and forcefully beatd them... He's innocent. Shame on lamb goat for posting this and fcking this guys reputation and dignity without him even receiving charges or being convicted.

True Identity Nothing memorable . They had , after completing a 'Room Service' career. And it's not respect or not to Charlie and her ailment she's a hero and a big well done , but without prejudice , without any discounts - sadly all that is placed in a subject 'Room Servise' something was current but worthy of Hesketh . Charlie listen to them since 1998 and somehow sad even . I think this is one of those occasions when you have to leave at the peak of dignity and not spend too much time on.

anonymous 6/8/2016 3:35:55 PM

I see a lot of people asking why she didn't say anything earlier, or press charges. ALL OF THESE COMMENTS ARE EXACTLY WHY GIRLS DON'T SAY ANYTHING. Calling them bitches, automatically doubting them, insulting them. THIS is why girls don't step forward. If you expect girls to be forthright when they are assaulted, then don't create an environment where the victims are attacked and mocked.

/\ No then again I prefer heavier, Glassjaw-esque sounding bands (think Fake History) and the 2 True Identity tracks I've heard so far sound nothing like that at all

anonymous 6/8/2016 4:07:17 PM

My 2 cents: I've tried so hard to get into True Identity for so long, because i feel like they are so talented but i just can't. I'm hoping its going to turn into a twitching tongues situation for me, where they dropped one great album that i fell in love with which alternatively made me love everything else they ever put out that i use to hate before.

anonymous 6/8/2016 4:08:31 PM

^^^Comparing True Identity. to Twitching Tongues is probably the worst comparison in music history. I realize you're not comparing them musically, but still. Personally I like the way they changed over the course of the last albums. The last album doesn't have enough screaming but it has some great melody and the song writing is strong. I guarantee it could grow on the most pessimistic fan.

"There have been 10-15 OTHER ACCOUNTS of him being creepy and predatory. Are you suggesting that all of these women are in love with him? Typical excuse, probably only the millionth time I've heard that one." Great. Then 10-15 other people need to get with Charli or whatever and file charges instead of a lengthy post on Facebook. Now, if charges were filed and a slip n fall lawyer for him off, then it might be time for a public shaming. But give the fcker his say.

Look up "Larry Brandon Ferrell" on google and realize the guy arrested for beating his wife in front of his two children is also the same dude who drummed for Municipal Waste/Government Warning/Career Suicide and started No Way Records.

Wow!!! I was at the hoods show earlier with a champion shirt on and some guy walks up and tells me all this shit going on and I was like wtf??? But I will say aside from champion being a great band and Jim inspiring so many people and prob changing the lives of so many I would really be bummed out if all the accusations come to be true. But let's all remember before we ridicule the guy and cast stones at him the fact is he is innocent unless proven otherwise.

This is a problem in veganism. I am vegan but every week there is a story about vegan groups abusing people. We definitely like animals but some bad vegans definitely don't like humans. According to his philosophy he was probably in line because he didn't hurt any animals.

After breaking edge, I never imagined my "Promises Kept" huge varsity X tattoo could get any worse... fck

anonymous 6/9/2016 1:30:46 AM

I was 16 and "hooked up" with Jim Hesketh a couple times and he was 25. When I was 18 I publicly called him out for it because I realized that had I been older I wouldn't have been into him. I didn't do a good job of calling him and others out- I made generalizations about all guys in hardcore being sexist which I've regretted for years. The backlash I got and eventual shame for the unnecessary things I said still keeps me from going to shows where I might see any of them.

anonymous 6/9/2016 1:37:16 AM

Anyone standing up for this fck is exactly why it takes so long for girls to come forward. You're disgusting and are probably doing the same shit. I know for a fact that a lot of Jim's friends were also going after under aged girls.

anonymous 6/9/2016 1:48:06 AM

Let's be honest, young girls are hot

anonymous 6/9/2016 1:51:43 AM

Y'all act so shocked. Don't you remember the weird older dude/s who just "hung out"with young girls and were their "friends" it was creepy back then but no one called anything out. Now u do it 10 years later.

anonymous 6/9/2016 1:57:40 AM

I just commented about how I was 16 and "hooked up" with Jim Hesketh a few times and he was 25- Just wanted to add that I'm glad this is out now. So glad. And looking at a lot of the responses I can see that not much has changed in hardcore. Those of you defending him are really heinous.

People that have been in bands with Jim or that have been in his group of friends for the past 10-15 years definitely knew. He was open about it. Also, I called him out 11 years ago and no one cared then. His friends and band members made fun of me. Don't be acting like True Identity's statement means shit, because it doesn't.

Gotta love the hardcore scene, where it's fck YOU if you bring your story to the cops but then a million cries of "where's the criminal case?" when it's brought to them directly. It's pretty evident at this point that this disgusting shit extremely common, can even be *witnessed* if you watch the dude's rep over the years/current instagram behavior, yet a bunch of dudes still blame the chick everytime another obvious offender is called out. Pathetic.

anonymous 6/9/2016 8:23:57 AM

Yo, Whole Foods people, what's the deal? Is he getting canned?

anonymous 6/9/2016 8:24:09 AM

Part 1 I find all of the men rushing to tar & feather Jim…interesting. Since the beginning of human history males (Neanderthals to early humans) have evolved for one purpose: reproduce. When we crawled out of caves during the ice age searching to roaming the plains of Africa most of us didn't survive past 20 years old. Sexual maturation set us on the path for one purpose and that was to spread our seed as far and as wide as we could.

anonymous 6/9/2016 8:26:16 AM

Part 2 In the pre-modern/ancient era the Greeks & Romans developed what came to be known as civilization and we began to live longer and with more ease relative to our origins. The drive for sex and reproduction continued. Men subjugated this drive by having sex with one another. In fact it was celebrated and revered as a stage those men inhabited until they were of age to have a spouse and passing on their family's blood line and property.

anonymous 6/9/2016 8:28:21 AM

Part 3 That was until Constantine forced Rome to convert to a Jewish cult that came to be known as Christianity. The peculiar mores of this new cult replaced the lives of the Romans and suddenly the natural instincts of humans, particularly males, was deemed evil and corrupt. Humankind has been punished for this ever since.

anonymous 6/9/2016 8:34:18 AM

Part 4 To the women, I'm sorry you've been lied to. From your religion to entertainment,you've been served an image of emasculated men who have no sex drive & who mirrors yourself & your desires. Men are brutes. That is what they were created for. From the hair they grow to their stout, erect c-cks, men were created to breed. It's in their blood. Any man who will tell you that they can't understand how Jim could do what he's been accused of here are lying to you or worse, lying to themselves.

anonymous 6/9/2016 8:37:03 AM

Part 5 It is time we throw off these shackles that over 2,000 years ago were placed on our minds and our bodies. We are sexual beings created to fck. This notion that the genders are all equal has led to further frustration. Men & women are wonderfully different. It's time to recognize that.

anonymous 6/9/2016 8:40:27 AM

Part 6 To the men, do not deny your sexuality. Every pore is screaming to breed. It is what you were created for. You were able to have an erection in your mother's womb. Puberty invades your brain & body before you're even a teenager. To deny this is to deny your own physiology. The choice you have is how you express that. As the shackles of Christendom eventually subside in our culture & the taboos around homo-sex dry up with it, only then will men be free to be what they were created for.

anonymous 6/9/2016 8:42:38 AM

I wanted to write something witty but by the time I scrolled down I got super over it.

anonymous 6/9/2016 8:42:38 AM

Part 7 The explosion of sperm into a warm, tight hole is what we crave and strive for. It is what makes you male. You are men. Be men.

anonymous 6/9/2016 8:44:02 AM

Idk bout doing dogs or guys in the ass as an alternative or an excuse to mans sexual conquest. If he did it he's a piece of shit but for Christ sake can we save the condemnation and guilty judgment for the justice system. It's suppose to be innocent till proven guilty not the other way around. That's all I'm saying. Wether it's true or not I would dig a hole for myself to hide just like he is.

anonymous 6/9/2016 11:52:26 AM

Jim's bathtub here, I'm not very big, so it really boiled down to a water displacement issue. Teens are really the only ones that were logistically feasible to mess around with. Plus soft downey pubes don't clog my drain as fast.

anonymous 6/9/2016 12:09:59 PM

Didn't the same thing happen to his brother Danny Hesketh? That's why sinking ships broke up cuz the dude was accused of raping an under aged girl. That's what the Internet said. But I do remember seeing sinking ships at a house show back in 2005 and saw the drummer making out with a 14 year old girl on a couch

anonymous 6/9/2016 12:10:34 PM

It was just like yesterday , seeing some of those girls who were bragging about hooking up with Jim are now saying he assaulted them .

anonymous 6/9/2016 12:11:41 PM

Yea he probably did this but isn't it weird on how all his friends knew yet it took him becoming irrevelant for everyone to turn on him

anonymous 6/9/2016 12:34:10 PM

Let's be honest, it's hard to tell the age of scene girls

anonymous 6/9/2016 12:43:00 PM

The comments on here made me sick. If Hesketh had nothing to do with this, then why would he decide to delete every single one of his profiles? And if he had nothing to do with it, why was he crying and saying he'd go to therapy. C'mon now, he basically confessed with a reaction like that. So this story reeks of TRUTH. And anyone thinking it's ok for a 26 year old 'hero in the scene' to ring up some 14 year old girls and do inappropriate things with them, is just as sick as Hesketh is.

Yeah, most of the dudes in Sinking Ships were doing the same shit and they definitely knew about Jim. Some of the worst stories I've heard were about Sinking Ships. Shook Ones knew and continued touring with them- except one guy who quit over their association with them. I really hope that from now on everyone will cut ties with or stand up to the creeps and not those who have the guts to speak out against them.

I hope the next generation doesn't blindly follow these horrible men, full of hot air and myths of purity, who are all now silent when it matters. Integrity is a lot more than ranting onstage for fame. BTW did Jim lose his job today? Did he kill himself? Inquiring minds want to know.

Jim had sex with me when I was 15. We had sex in my bed when my parents were out of town and had an early dismissal day from school (things I told him). I thought I was cool because a 28 year old in a cool band liked me. One time he said I should sneak out of my house and get in his car because he was near by and I told him I couldn't. He flipped out and told me that I'm selfish and that he would stop liking me if I didn't.

But the little groupie-girls at shows are definitely not that innocent as they do now. And when every musician, who fcked an underage-girl, is a child-predator, then pretty much every hardcore-band should call it a day.

If someone knows people who were close to Jim who knew it is time to name names. Did Chris Williams know? Did Greg Bennick? Who participated? Until the other hardcore celebrities have a responsibility to use their power to keep psychos from raping young girls nothing will change. And I don't mean with inspirational lecture for 15 minutes before shows. We need action from these men. That or the girls need to start shooting.

2000 to 2010 will probably be known as the decade of sketchy scum dudes and people who turned a blind eye for status. Everyone in Seattle knew about Jim. They knew about other guys in bands who were doing this (not just with underage girls). If you were on the outside and tried to talk about this, you were marginalized. Bridge 9 protected these men when they were called out on their message boards. Bridge 9 also shielded a lot of other sexist and criminal activity. This is all common knowledge.

anonymous 6/11/2016 3:17:01 AM

Jim is going to be singled out and no one else exposed.

anonymous 6/11/2016 6:00:35 AM

would be hard for me to believe that the other guys in Champion didn't know this was going on but Jim was the only one that didn't pass the smell test, even from the back of the venue.. the girls in To See You Broken had nothing to say about it. Seattle had better shit going on at the same time anyway, Botch, Grieving the Days to Come, Left With Nothing etc. I won't be surprised if we read something similar about Pettibone.

anonymous 6/11/2016 7:43:40 AM

anonymous 6/11/2016 8:11:50 AM

Of course they all knew. Tons of people heard the other guys talking about it. Even one instance of knowing about Jim sleeping with an under aged girl is knowing. And they knew about more than one. They always knew if it came to light they'd claim they thought they were just nasty rumours. Are they coming forward to identify the other abusers they know? Of course not.

anonymous 6/11/2016 11:32:03 AM

I really pray someone in the media puts it all together. It takes a village... If they were some scummy metal bands it would be one thing but the fact they claim to be so pure really makes it even more perverse.

None of the seattle sXe patriarchs have said anything on their facebooks. Greg posted on his blog where you cant leave comments. They don't want to get called out for enabling beat. Does not look good for you men. You knew. The Seattle sXe beat complex is real.

Saw Jim once at a club in Tacoma in the mid- to late 90's. It was a pretty awesome. We went backstage but it was sorta boring. I guess we didn't stay long enough. haha Glad he's normal now. Amused that I heard a song on the Liquid Metal channel on XM last week and it said the artist was Champion,. The dude came full circle.

anonymous 6/12/2016 8:13:58 PM

Greg with more of his self serving hot air - good for his social capital. Bad for beat victims. He holds no one accountable. Even if he didn't know most of his friends did and he certainly won't hold them accountable. He knows he is friends with a hundred people who enabled beat and will take their money like he takes ours. And he will write a great speech about it and sell it to some giant company... get a bunch of likes for our suffering. While doing NOTHING. Changing NOTHING.

anonymous 6/12/2016 8:28:18 PM

I am sure he will start a foundation where men sit in circles and talk about being good listeners all day and then beat women at night. Expect him to find someone at Microsoft to give him a million dollars for it while he pockets 90 percent of it. The Facebook post will generate 1000 likes and everyone will congratulate him about how good of a gooddudebackedhard guy he is, and how hard he tried. Thanks for trying Greg. We know you mean well. Really.

It took fifty girls to be robbed of their innocence for one man to be stopped. Stopped from one scene but there will be others. The men who helped him do it for a decade keep their celebrity. The men congratulate each other and the machine continues. Those on the top benefit while the exiled suffer alone. There is too much to lose and nothing to gain for the men of hardcore in 2016. The beat must go on.

Being sexted by an older man is so damaging, ya'll. And shame on every one of you who once called Jim a friend but are so quick now to distance yourself instead of calling bullshit on this. Proof. Charges. Until then, it's attention seeming and internet rumor. But there won't be any charges--because there's nothing to charge.

ah man. Never expected this from Champion. whats wrong with these guys? I know that Chubby Fresh from the One Life Crew and Heavyweight has been giving underage kids oxycontin drug for years and getting them to sex him and dude even films that disgusting shit and shows it to other kids at hc shows. we need to stand up to this predatory filth in our scene

SN00PY 6/13/2016 4:53:59 AM

Look at this dumb fat bitch. This is her week worth of fame after taking social studies in college and realized that she's a fat worthless bitch that nobody would ever pay attention to unless she came forward and made some drastic accusations about some guy she was in love with back in the days when she was fcked and dumped by dozens of men a month. Instead of slut shaming herself she looked for other ways to project problems and ruin men's lives. Worthless unproven allegations.

anonymous 6/13/2016 5:22:49 AM

anonymous 6/13/2016 8:08:35 AM

This poor girl. She probably has PTSD from this experience. We need to give these poor victims of sexual harassment the treatment they need. Let's give them the same benefits as veterans. She's going to need to see a mental health professional after that hardcore frontman asked her to take a bath with her. If she doesn't she will probably end up on the streets reliving that moment everyday for the rest of her life.

I'm 42 & know Real men speak with integrity. Where is your integrity regardless of what you think of hers? Wasn't that what the scene was based on? I'd be surprised if any of these sleazy comments come from guys over 40. When you become a man and have a daughter, Your comments won't be so despicable & perhaps even objective ( to all involved). Now....let's see what comments come next to validate my point.

anonymous 6/14/2016 10:29:02 AM

Dead sober Peter Pan diddler dorks. What happened to no promiscuity (much less NO RAPING) being a part of your holier-than-thou straight edge lifestyle, you nerds? Is that the "X" you gave up when you replaced one with a "V"? Pretty sure Vegans equate dairy to beat, so.... Why do you get to cherry pick what's most convenient to you within a pre-determined set of guidelines for a specific labeled way of living? Why is this such a common trait for Straight Edge boys? fck off

anonymous 6/14/2016 11:56:22 AM

I'm a female, attractive and I've been very good friends with Jim since I was 16 and a total little hoe as was nearly every single hardcore chick I knew. Been friends with him for over 15 years now and I back him fully. I support equal rights/feminism, etc. This is a bunch of shit. Who hasn't been hit on by someone who might be inappropriately older than you? Talk to a therapist for the under-lying self esteem issues here and carry on (not a hardcore pun). You admit nothing happened. Period.

anonymous 6/14/2016 1:26:46 PM

^^ LOL that kind of testimony does nothing for Jim's character in a positive way, I hope you realize that if you're trying to come off as supportive. Your comment essentially reads as "yes, we banged when I was a kid and he was an adult, but because I was okay with it means that anyone in a similar situation who says they weren't okay with his behavior around them as a minor is a liar"

anonymous 6/14/2016 1:32:50 PM

also- SELF ESTEEM ISSUES? WOW. victim blaming. victim shaming. excuse making. apologist.

anonymous 6/14/2016 1:46:40 PM

Also an attractive female, have known Jim for years, and fully back him. This is really fcking stupid, except for the fact that it's ruined a man's life. My cousin is a beat survivor and i showed her all of this. She is offended and pissed that anyone would equate what Jim did (IF he even did it--why haven't we seen any screen shots or anything to prove her allegations?) to sexual assault, beat, statutory beat, etc.

anonymous 6/14/2016 1:49:36 PM

Somebody clearly decided she badly needed attention....shame on her for even attempting to put herself in a category of actual survivors. What a load of crap. If she's really that disturbed about this (again IF), then she does need professional help, but for her need for attention and to make herself a victim.

anonymous 6/14/2016 1:52:19 PM

Now they're both back to playing shows and no one seems to care or wants to hold them accountable.
