seriously — let that sink in for a minute: 80 year old Charles Manson is marrying a 26 year old “follower” of his named “Star“. I really wish I could say I’m kidding about this one. In case you need a little refresher course on our Groom, he’s not exactly boyfriend material. he’s mostly known for reminding America that people are inherently terrible at heart — considering his “followers” went out and butchered seven people in the summer of 1969. Though the murders were technically carried out by Manson’s so-called ‘family’ of followers, it was ultimately him who became infamous for them; especially since he was the brains of the whole operation.
The other day though, it was announced that our friend Charlie is set to marry one of those “followers”, a 26-year-old woman who has spent the last decade trying to free him! [did I mention people are fucked?] BUT even if Manson is locked up in prison — the marriage license has gone through and officially been approved; and the wedding is likely to take place sometime next month! I mean what. the. actual. fuck.
If this wasn’t strange enough news for you, Manson isn’t typically allowed to have visitors, but an exception for the marriage is being made [because why not?], and the “lovers” will be allowed to invite ten non-inmate guests. Star has even gone so far as to say that this marriage will give her access to information she’s not able to look at under the title of Manson’s girlfriend, which she hopes to use in an effort to free her “hero”.. because we should totally be giving her access to that kind of stuff..
The most troubling thing about all of this, [oh yes, we’re not done] is that Manson‘s “power” is pretty much mind control, since [as we all know] his whole deal during his days at large was convincing young women to do terrible things.. and look at what’s happening! If there’s anything that should be done, Manson shouldn’t be allowed to be conversing with impressionable young women, [let alone young women named “Star”] and the fact that he’s now [legally] marrying one is fucking horrifying..
So how do you feel about Charles Manson getting married? Was it inevitable or are you as concerned as I am? This is bound to be televised quite largely and I’m totally expecting this to be all over the Internet. oh well, I guess time will tell..
