Murder House / A prominent “surgeon to the stars”, Charles built the famous Murder House in 1922 for his wife Nora Montgomery. Although quite successful in the beginning, it is apparent that he began to lose business. He is described as having developed a gruesome “Frankenstein Complex”, wherein he stitched the assorted body parts of animals together. Dr. Montgomery becomes addicted to ether and becomes obsessed with resurrecting dead animals. In order to finance their elaborate lifestyle and his addiction, Charles and Nora begin performing abortions in their basement. One patient’s boyfriend kidnaps the Montgomerys’ baby, Thaddeus, and dismembers him. The police return the child’s various body parts to Dr. Montgomery in jars, which he then begins sewing back together.
Briarcliff Manor / Located in the state of Massachusetts, the manor was built in 1908 and served as the largest tuberculosis ward on the East Coast. During this time, an estimated 46,000 patients died within it’s walls. Ultimately, the Catholic Church purchased the institute in 1962 and transformed it into a sanitarium for the mentally-ill. It was run by Monsignor Timothy Howard and administrator Sister Jude. In 1965, the church sold the manor to the state, before it was shut down in 1971 and abandoned. Currently it stands in ruin. Legend has it that once you were committed at Briarcliff, you never got out.
Miss Robichaux’s Academy / The Academy was built in 1790 as a private school for privileged girls but was turned into a military hospital in the Civil War. The Supreme, the most powerful witch of the generation and a prominent socialite back then, reclaimed the building and reinstated it as a school as a cover-up, but in reality turned it into a safe haven for young witches to learn and hone their powers. Due to many women of the bloodline choosing not to reproduce and continue the bloodline, the population dwindled from at most 60 in the academy, to the present of just four girls.
you are gonna regret it.

FAKE GEEK GUYS: A MESSAGE TO MEN ABOUT SEXUAL HARASSMENT
By Andy Khouri
“I think this woman is wrong about something on the Internet. Clearly my best course of action is to threaten her with rape.”
That’s crazy talk, right? So why does it happen all the time?
Honest question, dudes.
That women are harassed online is not news. That women in comics and the broader fandom cultures are harassed online is not news. That these women are routinely transmitted anonymous messages describing graphic sexual violence perpetrated upon them for transgressions as grave as not liking a thing… that is actually news to me, and it’s probably news to a lot of you guys reading this.
So what do we do about it?
This article explains the solution perfectly and it’s sad how painfully obvious it is.
It’s all on the men in the comic industry, in any entertainment industry, to fix this sexist bullshit. It’s not the job of women to stop men from acting like sexist assholes, it’s the men’s job to point out other men who spout hate, abuse and rape threats and call them out on their bullshit.
This article pretty much does the job and makes the points the previous ones (by Janelle Asselin) tried to before they got lost in all of the author’s body-shaming and inherent transphobia. I’m glad someone got it right and I’m glad someone brought up the point that it’s not just on women to fix sexism. And sometimes, women need to fix sexism within themselves too, I might add. :/
"Sexual harassment isn’t an occupational hazard. It’s not a glitch in the complex matrix of modern life. It’s not something that just “happens.” It’s something men do. It’s a choice men make. It’s a problem men enable. It’s sometimes a crime men commit. And it is not in the power nor the responsibility of women to wage war on this crime.
It’s on us.”
That is like, exactly what I’ve been trying to sum up to my fiance several times when he doesn’t understand why I get so passionate(and admittedly sometimes take my frustration out on him) when he uses language and such that contributes to the problem. Men are the ones being assholes and are the dominant power in society currently, and even one man’s voice will still mean more, in a cultural sense, than my own feminine one will. Sucks but it’s kind of true.
if you use the bible as an excuse towards being anti gay dont forget that:
- torn clothes (like ripped jeans)
- wearing clothing made from 2 different fabrics
- cutting your hair
- and working on Sundays
are all listed as abominations in the bible as well
