Get AIDS Or Kill Yourself

At age 23, female porn star August Ames had already appeared in nearly 300 movies, among them such beloved chestnuts as Big Wet Breasts, Don’t Tell Hubby, Baby Got Boobs, Spandex Loads, and Titty Attack 8.

Although suffering from intractable mental problems and having a history of being sexually abused are not prerequisites for porn industry stardom, they certainly don’t seem to be a hindrance. Over the summer, Ames—born Mercedes Grabowski in Nova Scotia—claimed on porn photographer Holly Randall’s podcast that during her childhood, her paternal grandfather had molested her repeatedly. She said that her own father refused to believe her and banished her to a group home at age 12.

From there it was the well-trod future-porn-star spiral of doing stripteases for cocaine at age 15…to alcoholism and drug addiction…to diagnoses for bipolar disorder and multiple personality disorder…to psychiatric medications…to lingering depression…and, ultimately, to willfully having sex under hot camera lights in nearly 300 different features at an age when many people are only graduating college. Ames told Randall that she still has days where it’s difficult to get out of bed so she can get down to the porn studio and get into bed with some stranger:

“Gay men comprise only 4% of the male population but account for nearly 80% of all new HIV infections in the USA.”

Some days I’ll be fine, and if I’m not doing anything I’ll get these awful flashbacks of my childhood and I get very depressed. I can’t get out of bed and cancel my scenes for like a week or two….It’s still recent where I have to keep myself occupied or else I start thinking about all that shit and then I fall into a depression.

Last Sunday, Ames tweeted that she was pulling out—pun entirely intended—from a porn shoot due to the fact that her potential costar was known for mainly doing gay porn:

whichever (lady) performer is replacing me tomorrow for @EroticaXNews, you’re shooting with a guy who has shot gay porn, just to let cha know.  BS is all I can say…Do agents really not care about who they’re representing?...I do my homework for my body

In the year 2017, nearly fifty years after the noble Stonewall riots and a full four decades after Middle America accepted flaming fags such as Paul Lynde and Charles Nelson Reilly into their households via television, why must gay male porn stars still be forced to deal with troglodytic, hate-filled females who cloak their homophobia under some half-assed alibi that they don’t want to be infected with a deadly disease?

Sure, there will be some of you basement-dwelling Asperger’s casualties out there who will diligently trot out your so-called “statistics” about how gay men comprise only 4% of the male population but account for nearly 80% of all new HIV infections in the USA.

Among those will be impenitent racists who feel the need to also needlessly point out that black men are about six times more likely to be HIV+ than white men are, but we all know that this is due to racist tropes about savage and unrestrained black concupiscence and some discredited and debunked pseudoscience about black males’ genetic lack of impulse control. There was really no need to inject race into this discussion at all, but since there are so many racists out there who would jump at the chance to make it all about race, I figure I’d cut them off at the pass before they even got the chance to do so.

The point is that we, the righteous, all know—because we alone are able to read minds, while the wicked stick to their “facts”—that August Ames didn’t really care about whether or not she’d receive a hot, steamy load of HIV from her mostly gay costar. Neither does it matter that there were porn-industry rumors that the costar in question was notorious for either not taking his HIV tests or even forging the test results. Instead, it is blindingly clear that August Ames merely wished to announce to the world that she hates gay people and wishes they’d all die or at least be tortured.

Gay Twitter pounced on Ames with the ferocity of a pink hurricane that just so happens to have a low T-cell count. A certain gay porn star who calls himself “Sir Jaxton Wheeler” instructed Ames to either apologize for her homophobia or kill herself:

@AugustAmesXXX the world is awaiting your apology or for you to swallow a cyanide pill. Either or we’ll take it.

Ames attempted to defend herself against the unforgivable accusations of homophobia by protesting that she was bisexual and only wanted to protect herself from acquiring a fatal illness:

How am I homophobic if I myself am attracted to women? Not wanting to have sex with gay men is not homophobic; they don’t want to have sex with me either so byeeeee

Yet the gay mob was ruthless. Bruce Beckham, another gay porn star, chided Ames for whining about her well-deserved digital tongue-lashing:

Turns out being an uneducated homophobe DIDN’T get you a pat on the head? Maybe think next time before you word vomit for attention.

By Tuesday, Ames was found dead “due to asphyxia by hanging.” It was ruled a suicide. Sir Jaxton Wheeler expressed no remorse:

I’m going to sleep just fine, I stood up for the Gay and Bisexual community, or I say nothing and let more people mislable [sic] and judge millions, because of one misinformed mouth? No one told her to do anything harmful to herself.

Mind you, this is the same person who told her to swallow a cyanide pill.

Bruce Beckham offered a flaccid half-apology that persisted in framing the global gay community as the victims in all this:

On Monday I called out a homophobic performer for her ignorance and uneducated bias.
She allegedly chose to end her own life when she was exposed to the same vitriol that gay people have been exposed to globally for decades.

An anonymous Twitter account called “Love Yourself” that features a rainbow flag as its icon appears to believe that in the sad case of August Ames, justice had been served:

She deserved to die. Say shit against the lgtbq+ community and pay the price

In other words: Get AIDS or kill yourself. If you don’t submit to our warped ideas of compassion, we will show you no mercy. Since we were bullied in our childhoods, we will bully anyone who questions our sanctity/sanity until they kill themselves, at which point we will rejoice.

I believe that no one can be driven to kill themselves who wasn’t already severely messed-up and didn’t want, even just a little bit, to die. But the grim demise of August Ames is one in a long line of cases that suggest behind the Screaming Left’s endlessly vacant rhetoric about tolerance and love lurk quite a few demented and shame-ridden souls who endlessly lament that the world is full of “hate” because they’re too weak to confront the ugliness within themselves.
