SHOULD TEENS RECEIVE ADVICE FROM A COLUMNIST WHO IS CLEARLY PATHOLOGICAL IN HIS LIES, POSTURING, AND FALSE ALLEGATIONS?
One does not know what to believe when it comes to "Daric Richie", but if recent reports that he is actually a minor are correct, then it would behoove the adults who are involving themselves in his troubled and chaotic life to get him some help, before he winds up in the hands of Juvenile Hall. I am washing my hands of him, and will take no further interest in him after this post.
He has told some very serious lies on the internet, and made serious allegations against others, as well as posed as an adult in order to make contracts with book publishers and media persons, to their detriment. He saddened some of the most illustrious editors within the gay community at a time when they were already grieving.
His life is not off to an auspicious beginning, and the signs of sociopathy and pathologic lying are troubling in the extreme. I hope his mother is aware of what he has involved himself in recent past, and comes to his aid.
A TICKING TIME-BOMB
This is my last post on Richie, as he is now beginning to depress me, which I do not need. May he find adults in his life who will take an interest in his genuine well-being, rather than using him to further their own agendas, and take the time to reveal to him the considerable social and psychological dangers of his current path.
