News NXIVM

Girls By Design Logo Search Leads to Kreuk; while GBD has stories about sexual assault and a survey for little girls by ‘Sexy 7’

In defense of the Frank Report’s posting of stories about a teen group led by a TV actress who happened to be a coach in a cult whose leaders were later charged with sex trafficking –it is readers who keep pushing the “Kristin Kreuk had a suspicious role in NXIVM” narrative.

Readers are interested and continue to provide information.

Here is a letter I got today from a source I know:

“I did a search on GBD’s logo and two sites came up, wasn’t sure if you knew about them or not.

“Hope all is well –R”
*****************************************************************************
I got another email:
“Hello Frank
“I liked your article about GirlsByDesign and decided to take a look.  Did you see the blog?
It has an article about a girl who was sexually assaulted
and then later has another questionnaire for the girls by a ‘Sexy 7’
*****************************************************************************
OK – it’s a blog for teen girls  – most of whom are presumably under the age of consent in most US states – and the topics are sex slavery [see earlier post] sexual assault, and a questionnaire by “Sexy 7”.
This could be a sign of my being a prude – but if these girls are underage why are they being asked to participate in a questionnaire by someone calling himself/herself “Sexy 7?
Here are the questions. They are addressed to girls but Sexy 7 calls them “ladies”:

Hey Ladies,

GBD wants to know your answers to the 7 sexiest questions…tee hee!

  1. How do you think people perceive you and how is it different from the way you perceive yourself?
  2. Which of your irrational fears is the silliest?
  3. What is the most time consuming activity you participate in?
  4. What is the greatest lesson you have learned from a child?
  5. If you could wave a magic wand and ask for whatever you wanted, what would you ask for?
  6. What is the most beautiful moment you have ever experienced?
  7. What are you most grateful for?

Send in your answers via video, audio, or text to:  info@girlsbydesign.com.  Don’t forget to write “SEXY 7″ in the subject line.

Here is what Allie has to say about the Sexy 7 Set…take it away Allie!

[What follows is a Sexy 7 video which I could not get to play. Perhaps others will be able to play it.]
Then there were comments, including one from Allie – who is evidently not Allie Mack.
Here are a few:

********

Is it possible that the answers to the Sexy 7 questionnaire were screened by Kristin Kreuk, Kendra Voth,  Allison Mack or Karen Unterreiner – for the right kind of girl for NXIVM or even Keith Raniere?
Or that may be entirely untrue. Maybe Keith was not behind any of this.
As for the sexual assault story, on another page for the GBD teen blog, it is told by someone named L.L. who was purportedly assaulted when she was jogging.

Hi Maia,

As the title suggest, I need some advice. It’s rather a dark subject (and the first time I’ve reached out) but it’s about time to live freely.

Last year in July I was sexually assaulted. I know the crime is more common than most like to admit and I can deal with the fact that it happened to me, but I have tremendous trouble healing from the psychological and philosophical impact it had. It happened as I was running and my head was in the sky, when everything’s profound. My mind was in a delicate and intimate state when this man asked me a question as I ran by, “Why do you run?” Of course knowing me, how could I not notice the metaphorical importance of the situation? So I stopped, we talked, and he assaulted me. On a deep level I feel as though I had invited him to do so. Throughout the entire year, since July the month it happened, I’ve done nothing but take a pickax to my entire being. I hated myself, I abhorred myself, I disconnected myself and I hurt myself.

Its taken an ephemeral moment to destroy a structure I had worked on my entire life, and a year to remember where the blueprints are, but I’ve found a resolution I had just months before the incident: I want to be an engineer and I want to do great things. The thing is, I’m still scared shitless of people. I walk through my crowded university hallways and my fists clench with anxiety. It changed me and I don’t know if its for the good or bad. I’ve become almost hypersensitive of my weaknesses, insecurities and my (perceived) inabilities, and it makes them that much worse.

I’ve always thought we carry the solutions to the problems of our lives right there with us, but it’s the discovery of them that is over looked. But, I look in the mirror and I see the memory and I struggle to find my solution.

I know its a little on the dark side, but even communicating why I am the way I am is cathartic (you know… engineers aren’t exactly famous for their communication skills). Thank you for the opportunity, even if it goes unread, I appreciate it.

Sincerely,

L.L

*****************************************************************************
This may be a true account but, on the other hand, it might be a fictional story written by Raniere himself for reasons best known to himself.
I was reminded of the quote of Hemingway’s posted on Girls By Design – “The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places.”
Of course, that may be a reach, as Sultan of Six, Kreuk’s chivalrous defender, says.  People are presumed innocent unless proven guilty. But the more evidence we put out there, the better it is for the truth. If Kreuk is innocent of any nefarious intent, it should become apparent.
Still, I wonder about the need for a purported college girl’s sexual assault story on a blog for young teen girls.

Finally, here is 2008 quote from Kreuk on GBD —

Kristin Kruek writes about femaleness for young girls on GBD

“That is essentially what GBD is about: bringing females together. I believe that women have an important perspective to offer the world. Now, this isn’t about the exclusion of men, it’s about the focus on female. With men around, I think it is more challenging for girls to just be girls. But the more I embrace my female-ness, the more I can appreciate and love men… and other women for that matter. So, get a few or a lot of your gal friends together, and spend time together with the focus on female-ness. And share your experience with us!!!  — Love, Kristin”

Some of this language sounds a lot like Jness – which was then in its early days of growth at the time.

 

Allison Mack speaks about Jness and femaleness in a 2013 video

Allison Mack discussed Jness in a blog post in similar language. The blog has since been removed but, in the post, Mack said, “Women in Jness have a beautiful opportunity to build and deepen their relationships with themselves and others through the guidance of a profound educational curriculum run by small groups of women who meet weekly to share and explore questions and concepts. The process deepens their understanding of their inner world and experiences and as an effect, many women begin to have a greater understanding of the secret, honest world of femaleness.”

  • Hello, everybody,

    at first, I know my English isn’t very good because it’s not my mother tongue and I’m sorry.

    I am a psychology student and have watched that Jness video of Allison plenty of times. Is it just me or do some thing look very strange. To me it looks like she would feel very uncomfortable by making this video. She looks uneasy and seem unable to look in the camera. To me it looks like whoever was holding the camera were intimidated her very much. She seems totally insecure and intimidated, almost anxious. Everything she says sounds rehearsed and insecure, as if someone had been put the words into her mouth. Her searching looks into the camera seem as if she is trying to make sure that she’s saying the right things. It seems to me that someone behind the camera is watching exactly what she is saying. That’s not the Allison I know from her blogs and interviews. To me there’s something strange about it. What do you think?
