“And Then, One Day, I Realized….How To Give A Fuck.”

I did a livestream Sunday, and towards the end, someone asked me…

“Bristol, how did you come to be so invested in and passionate about Turtleboy?”

I’m paraphrasing at this point, but boy – what a loaded question that is. I try not to talk about myself too much while I’m on this crazy journey I was blessed to be swept up in over a year ago when I got a random, unexpected message from one of my long time idols – the one and only Clarence Woods Emerson. “Your comments make me laugh,” it said, “Would you ever want to try blogging?”

I simply understood then, as I do now, it’s not me you all come to read. Who am I, really? No one gives a fuck. And I wouldn’t want you to, or expect it. I’m simply not important. But to answer a question like that, really answer it….well, it’s simply impossible not to delve in to who I am underneath the biting, venomous, and crude humor to who I am. And put simply, for a long time, I was an immature little girl who simply did not give a fuck. Exhibit A.

This is a mugshot, and it is mine, from over a decade ago when I was around 19, almost 20. I was picked up for a warrant on a traffic stop not far from where I was living at the time, in a tiny, run down apartment off Crowell Road in Chatham. Earlier today, Seth Thurston of Albuquerque, New Mexico dredged it up and posted it as a reaction to what he apparently felt was a slight to him on our stream (He’s an idiot, and it was.).

But he missed so much context, and that context really explains who I was at the time.

You see, approximately four months prior to the traffic stop, I was stopped for some traffic infraction I can’t quite remember, and I wasn’t wearing my seatbelt. I just didn’t give a fuck enough about the potential danger of being sent hurdling through the glass of my windshield in an accident enough to buckle up. The officer issued me an $80 ticket, and I should have paid it. But I didn’t. I just didn’t give a fuck. And there it sat, ignored and unpaid, until the Registry of Motor Vehicles suspended my license. I should have stopped driving until I cleared it up. But I didn’t give a fuck.

Now, when the RMV suspends your license, eventually it shows up when your plates are run. Of course, you’re given a bit of a “grace period” before your registration is also revoked. This is NOT a free pass to keep operating your motor vehicle. But I didn’t give a fuck. I kept driving, and one day, with a friend of mine in the passenger seat, I was again pulled over. My father is a longtime town employee and what you’d call a “good ol’ boy” in town, so the cops were generally a little bit more friendly with me. The officer checked my passenger’s license and sternly ordered we pull a “Chinese fire drill” and I take care of my license immediately. We obliged, and I remember adamantly assuring him that I would certainly resolve the issue. Unfortunately for me, I didn’t give a fuck.

So a few days later I again got pulled over, license suspension still unresolved. The cop was slightly less forgiving, but he agreed to allow me to call someone to pick up my car and simply issue a summons in lieu of arrest. That court date came and went – I didn’t give a fuck.

And so I was pulled over a third time, this time with neither a valid license nor registration, and an active bench warrant. This time I started to give a half a fuck… but only as I was cuffed, placed in the back of a cruiser, and booked at this station. This time was obviously different for me – it was the officer who didn’t give a fuck. Not my proudest moment for sure. And, oh my God. That mug shot.

That is the face of a classic Turtleboy famous ratchet. I deserve your ridicule. Truly.

There’s also some context that Mr. Thurston left out surrounding that, however. Because if you pan up, just a little, on that days arrest, you may notice….

Another arrest, a man, from the same address as mine. The reason I looked extra disheveled. You see, my license wasn’t the only think I didn’t give a fuck about at 19. My personal safety was low on the list of things to give a fuck about as well. That day, as I was driving with no license and no registration, it was for some semblance of a reason. I was attempting to flee from my abuser. And as I sat in that cell and waited for bail I knew was not going to come, I didn’t really give a fuck. Because for at least a day, I knew I wasn’t going to be hit. I should have given more of a fuck, though. By 19, I had a child. A child I couldn’t protect, because I couldn’t even protect myself. I wanted to give a fuck, I really did. I just didn’t know how. I didn’t have any control.

I did see my day in court, and I saw those charges dismissed. And for the next nearly three years I was stuck in a cycle of being so powerless, I felt like I couldn’t give a fuck if I tried. That’s another piece of context “Bill Daddo” missed. The part where I would pull myself up, barely, and crawl to the point where I really, really gave a fuck. I had two kids to protect, but I still couldn’t protect myself. He missed this headline, in 2011.

Taunton Daily Gazette:

“Police say it took five Taser strikes before they were able to handcuff an out-of-control 31-year-old city man, accused of brutalizing a woman in the presence of her two young children early Thursday night.

Steven J. Young, formerly of 458 Weir St., apt. 3, is charged with domestic assault and battery, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (shod foot), assault and battery on a police officer and witness intimidation.

He’s being held on $25,000 cash bail at Bristol County House of Correction after his arraignment Friday in Taunton District Court.

Patrolman Jayson LaPlante reports having witnessed Young punch the 23-year-old woman “square in the face … knocking her across the room onto the floor.”

The brazen assault, LaPlante says, occurred after the officer encountered a “heavily breathing” Young in the apartment’s kitchen.

As soon as the two men made eye contact, Young allegedly rushed into a bedroom where the woman was crying, head in hands, and cold-cocked her in front of the Taunton cop.

LaPlante said he deployed the dual probes of his Taser device into Young’s lower back but they had no effect — after Young slammed the bedroom door shut, dislodging one of the electrical-current-transmitting probes.

Kicking the door open, LaPlante then moved in to deliver a Taser “drive stun” after Young allegedly rushed at him with his fist clenched. Young reportedly fell onto a mattress but then proceeded to kick the officer in the chest with both legs.

A so-called drive stun, unlike a Taser probe’s normal five-second-long effect, only has a second-long disabling effect on muscles.

After being ordered to roll over on the mattress to be handcuffed Young reportedly taunted the officer, telling him to “learn your trade mother (expletive).”

He allegedly then charged LaPlante, who in the meantime had loaded a second cartridge into his Taser. A metal probe found its mark in Young’s chest but only slowed him down momentarily.

When Young tried getting up again he was hit with a second and finally a third Taser burst. At that point he was handcuffed and removed from the premises.

Police were originally called to the apartment house at 6 p.m.. On their way in they reportedly ran into Young, who said he was leaving for the night and was warned by cops not to return.

Just over an hour later police were called back when a 911 call reported a domestic disturbance on the third floor possibly involving a knife.

A female tenant allegedly told urged cops to “please hurry. He’s up there killing her.”

A male witness later told cops Young was out of control because he had ingested at least a dozen Klonopin pills, an anti-anxiety/anti-seizure medication, and was drinking heavily.

Both witnesses reported seeing Young punch his female victim all over her body.

The woman, who police said was visibly shaken and was injured above her eye, reportedly refused medical attention and repeatedly asked if Young would be arrested.”


That woman was me. That’s the same man arrested back in 2009, on the same day I was cuffed because I couldn’t find the motivation to give a fuck enough to buckle my seat belt as I let one poor decision hurtle me through the proverbial windshield straight into the world’s most cringeworthy mug shot. And that, I assure you, was not the worst of the violence I had grown so accustomed to. I could have been killed, as my two children looked on in horror, on any given day for high crimes ranging from trying to go out in public with makeup on to wanting to leave the man that beat me with closed fists as he called me a whore. I was jobless. I was weak, and I hadn’t so much as brushed my hair in nearly six months. But I didn’t give a fuck. I knew that I would rather be killed than have my children live another day in squalor watching their mother be beaten like an animal, with no good example to give them. I’m sure in opening up his identity to my detractors he’d have a lot of bullshit to spew about me. But he’s a soulless batter, and I have no more fear in me. I don’t give a fuck.

But that day is when I started to give a fuck. Someone told me, “This may feel like the worst day of your life, but it’s the best.” It did, but it was. First, I finally gave a fuck about my kids. I swallowed my fear, and my guilt, and my shame. I followed through with the charges. And then about myself. I went to meetings, I addressed my mental health. I got a job. I learned to take pride in myself, in my home, in my career. I learned how to speak up for what I needed, I learned to say no. Time kept moving on, and I often stumbled. The mistakes I’ve made and the havoc I’ve wreaked would take ten blogs to cover. But, I never gave up. Slowly but surely, my life grew. And then one day….I realized, I really realized, how to give a fuck.

Not just about myself, not just about the children I had once so sorely failed. Not just about my new husband, who treats me with love and respect, and as an equal; or the friends I had finally been able to find, or the career I had been finally able to fully realize. I learned how to give a fuck about others who were walking the path I had once trudged, feeling so alone. I learned how to give a fuck about my community, about something bigger than the little world I had carved out for myself despite whatever odds may have once been laid against me. I learned that what I had gained was meaningless and always at jeopardy if I was not always willing to give it away, to share what I had learned with others. One day, nearly 8 years after I had left the nightmare that once seemed like it would be my dismal existence until the day that I died in the dust…I was given an opportunity to share my perspective with more people than I had even imagined. And I’m learning how to use it, every day. I truly do give a fuck.

I give a fuck about the voiceless, I give a fuck about giving them a voice. I give a fuck about a mother in Illinois who beat her addiction to be a mother to her child, despite the campaign of spiteful and defamatory accusation waged against her. I give a fuck about the victims of con men who prey on trusting good souls again, and again, and again. I care about domestic violence victims, and animals, and children who can’t speak up for themselves. I give a fuck about vindication, and helping to reclaim even a ounce of power to the powerless. I care about giving some semblance of power back to victims. I’ve reached out to addicts we’ve blogged about to give them a ride to rehab and a chance at redemption. I’ve spent hours trying to help rehome the homeless. Tonight, I drove an hour from home to speak to the grandparents of a child caught in the middle of his mother’s self destructive spiral. I stayed, and I talked, and I lent my ear to a couple desperate to do the best they can by their grandson in the saddest of circumstances you can imagine, at the hands of a neglectful mother completely unwilling to change. To help when I can, to counsel as much as I can, sometimes just to listen. And in the end, I made such a meaningful connection for myself (and such a special new little friend), that it almost feels selfish to me.

I’ve helped raise money for those who need it, I’ve supported the families of those who make the ultimate sacrifice for our communities, I’ve given my own cell phone number out all over the internet to anyone who just might need anyone to talk to, anyone who just might need to hear about the way out. I don’t talk about it often, because I don’t need the accolades. I do it because I give a fuck. And if I make a difference in even just one life, then I am eternally grateful to Turtleboy for giving me this opportunity. A certain degree of unfiltered reality showed me the ways in which I had to change, and if I can do that for so much as just one other person…then I feel more complete. Because, Goddammit, I give a fuck.

You may call this virtue signaling. Maybe it is. God, I hope not, because there’s nothing more that I abhor. I just know what it feels like, to be downtrodden, to be hopeless, to have nowhere to turn. And that’s why I’m so passionate about Turtleboy. Because through this crazy little “hate blog”, I finally have an outlet to try to do some good in the world. I may just be one fat broad who couldn’t so much as pay a seat belt ticket ten years ago, but today….I truly do give a fuck. If this stupid, sappy, self important blog does nothing else….I hope it moves you, whoever you may be, to give a fuck as well.

And by the way, “Bill Daddo”? Judging from the numbers I’m seeing here, as far as anything you might have to say?

Nobody gives a fuck.

    I wonder, did she ONLY pen this to answer to the clown who called it out in a video, or was it also early damage control because she already planned on pulling the stupid nonsense she’s pulling now, so TB couldn’t expose it?
    All the same, I am glad she got away from her abusive ex.

      You know what?…. I searched to pull up this blog and re-read it also, because in my head it stuck out like a sore thumb. It struck me as off when I read it the first time, but you know, sometimes you chalk it up to you just don’t know. I’ve been a “victim” of domestic violence in the past, but I was not by any means a battered victim. We both fought and I ended up injured, the police pressed charges, I didn’t. I would have been happy with them telling him to get out of the house for the night, weekend, whatever and cool the hell off. They felt my injuries justified arrest. It was a one off fight that got out of control admittedly on both sides. When I read her words I thought the exact same thing, she wasn’t scared for herself, she likes the fight. She stayed, she wasn’t powerless, she was power-hungry, just turns out that he would get the best of her in strength, that doesn’t make her a victim, it makes her a participant. But line after line in this blog, she played victim. She likes appearing that way while she manipulates. I’ll readily admit, I’ve done it myself. I know what she did here and I know what she wanted to get out of it. Her new faithful followers satisfied in thinking she is the face of DV activism. She’s a con artist and looking back it’s pretty clear to see without the blinders on.

    Perhaps Hadassah had available space back in the day for you and your carefully planned offspring. On account of a wide variety of contraceptives not having been easily accessible since before your existence or anything. It’s totes no big deal to irresponsibly reproduce when one can’t provide basic necessities for themselves. You definitely didn’t put your children at a disadvantage voluntarily. Exposing them to the trauma of living with a violent scumbag was absolutely out of your control too. Certainly there couldn’t have been any indication he would have those tendencies.
    Such the hero for getting yourself away from a situation your own life choices without a doubt did not make a contribution to.

      Take a look at this… One of my own cases that still haunt my nights.
      Then let me know how you feel about a woman trying to protect her family.

        September 28, 2019 at 11:33 am

        You assume I’m a “soy boi” I assume you exist in your own reality where women are incapable of making better decisions and hold themselves accountable. Hey asshole I’m indeed one of those women. Ya know, one of those responsible chicks who used contraceptives at a time in life when sex was fun but procreation would have been irresponsible. So as to not subject potential offspring to having been born at a disadvantage. Also the type of chick who wouldn’t voluntarily associate with scumbags, much less allow one to use me as a punching bag. But do carry on with your valiant keyboard efforts.

If this world needs more of anything, it’s compassion, for ourselves and for others. I hope this extends to the other subjects of your blogs as well. We all deserve to be treated the way we would like to be treated. Thank you for sharing your story. I know somewhere out there, there’s someone reading it who is in the same spot you were. However difficult this may have been for you, I hope it is mitigated by the knowledge that you’ve given hope to others. Thank you

    That mug shot looks like every other strung out Fall River teen psycho who claims her boyfriend beat her when the truth is she attacked him because he wanted to go out with his friends to get away from the mouthy abusive psycho bitch so she called the cops and made the whole assault thing up.
    There’s not a scratch on her.
    The problem with crazy bitches like this is they need SO much fucking ATTENTION.
    Look at me now I’m a blogger writing stories about my ex and shit like this haha.
    Obviously she’s still trying to get his attention.
    If you believe this guy was constantly beating her then you probably believe Brett Kavanaughs friends would put his dick in random girls hands at parties.

    You have told a deeply personal and VERY WELL DONE and nicely encapsulated story of your a very small, albeit impactful chapter in your life. You are a powerful young woman, and I am beyond impressed how you’ve arrived at a better place in life….Now let’s have some fun together!

    Seth Thurston / aka BilDaddo / aka WICKD has a unique and unhealthy obsession with off brand children’s toys called ZOIDS. In fact, those are what are likely behind him in most of his less than interesting YouTubecontent. You can visit his entire website here: http://www.ZOIDS.US.
    “But WAIT Jim…There’s more!”
    – “Seth A. Thurston is a Freelance Graphic Artist, Web ‘Desinger’, and Writer” (Emphasis on ‘desinger’ is my own) and you can find many of his MANY fine bodies of works here:
    – Seth shares his RESUME here:
    – Perhaps though, you would like to HELP Bil/Seth/WICKD edit his RESUME, which can be done by downloading a copy here:
    – Would you be interested in a Seth/BillDaddo/WICKD original painting? Make an offer here: US Currency only, or Gojulas and/or Tongo the Cat Man may kill you (What, you don’t know your ZOIDS? Keep up here…)
    – Seth likes his own BilDaddo videos through his personal YouTube page: but of course he does!

    If TurtleBoySports wants to host the either of the following contests, *I will personally post the prize money* for the following:
    Contest Proposal #1: I will post $100, $50, $25, and two $10 runner up awards for the best revised Seth/BilDaddo resume, with the Top 5 received revised resumes posted on TurtleBoy Sports

    Contest Proposal #2: I will post a $500 reward for receiving a **verified** copy of the following: “…Seth Thurston lent his lyrics and voice to the track “Zip It Up” produced by Chicago based recording label “Branded Insane Records…” Found here:

    Lastly…You’ll notice that WICKD and the land of ZOIDS site started to fade around 2016…Its not for a healthy dose of counseling or behavioral health meds….
    Ouch. Just Ouch.

    Don’t worry BilDaddo/Seth Thurston…You might take your odd fantasy offline, but we vacuumed your site. Some things in life, like cheap Chinese plastic toys in a landfill and bankruptcies, will last forever.

    Please don’t deny it BillDaddo/Seth Thurston, you’d make a lousy spy..

    Just like an addict needs to hit his/her bottom, the day you got arrested was probably your bottom, Bristol. Thank god, because it probably did save your life in the end, in more ways than one.
    While I in no way blame you or any other domestic violence victim, the pattern of co-dependency is horrible and very much like being in a relationship with an addict (been there done that).
    Some comments here have said you have no compassion for other ratchets on here. I strongly disagree, public shaming sometimes is the ONLY thing that will get these people to change. Or at the very least warn others to stay far, far away.
    That you do go out and help, and are not just an arm-chair preacher with a lot to say and nothing to back it up, speaks volumes.

    It took a lot of guts to tell your story. It’s hard to tell and as a person who has been a victim of domestic violence myself. I know what it takes to actually get away. I left a home I owned with a mortgage in only my name in the middle of the night with my two boys and blanket. We left all we had behind and never looked back. Best thing I ever did. Yes we lost a lot. But we gained so much more. Our lives back. Which is why I again thank you for you work with Domestic Violence victims. You should be proud of what you have overcome.

    I think your story is wonderful. You have learned so much from your struggle. I’m truly happy for you. One path this may have led you to is a career in helping others who faced the same situation. Instead you chose to write a blog making fun of so called “rachets” that you yourself used to be. I guess thats another way to go.

    So it is true. You are a former ratchet, slowly gaining weight and aging, that took a vested interest in Turtleboys blog to assure you wouldnt get TB’d. You think otber people you blog about dont have a story as to why they are where they are. What, youre supposed to get a fucking pass. You bloated liberal cunt. Now youre some kind of peacekeeping, fundraising, messiah. Youre a piece of shit who was afraid of being publicly shamed so you became the public shamer. You are an example of someone who probably would off themselves if you were ridiculed on a public scale. Take your vanity pieces and liberal bullshit somewhere else. You are RUINING this blog.

      Theres two sides to this story. Have Steve on the podcast to tell his side.

      • September 24, 2019 at 10:20 am

        He’d be breaking his restraining order if we did that, you want your beloved family member in jail? Come on now, there’s only a handful of people who stick up for that scum. Don’t poke that. You’ll regret it. I do hold grudges, you know.

      • September 24, 2019 at 10:21 am

        Maybe I’ll ask the young lady Steve abused regularly when she was 18 and he was 34 on the podcast, though. We are friendly, you know. After all, I helped her get away.

        • Marie
          September 24, 2019 at 10:56 am

          They always have a hand full of people who stick up for them, but even they know what is true deep down. And it’s funny because it seems like when the other girls that end up with my former nightmare are always very young. And after they get beat up a few times they come to me for help getting away too. It’s part of the pattern I guess.

        • Drake/2 side to every story
          September 24, 2019 at 12:55 pm

          I just think its shitty that she publicly shames people, but understands what its like to be stuck in life. To reassure you, I dont know that man. And i think hes scum. I guess the comment was just a way of showing what its like to be on the receiving end of a total lack of human empathy. See how frustrating it is to have someone completely disregard your hardships and portray you in the most negative interpretation? It sucks. Please, just delete the comment. It was ugly. But it was a poor attempt at proving a point. I hope you somewhat understand it.

        I’m sure the guy who cold cocked a woman in front of her kids is really trustworthy and we should believe everything he would have to say on a podcast. She made him abuse her, right? He’s a really good guy who just accidentally slipped and fell into beating his wife. I hope Bristol didn’t put herself in any danger writing this TBH. You just kinda proved that he may have people watching her. Creepy. I hope she’s safe.

      Holy shit. You are some special kind of stupid. Why are you so angry? Does this article hit a nerve Drakey Poo? Does your ex have a restraining order against you?
      1. TB asked her to work for TB. If she plotted this and changed her career path so that she didn’t get TB’d someday…then damn, TB will have the ratchet streets of Chatham cleaned up in no time!
      2. If wanting to see other women (or men) break the cycle and leave psychotic, abusive partners and make a better life makes her a “liberal bloated cunt” then I would like to see more liberal bloated cunts in this world.
      3. I am a bloated cunt. I am 7 months pregnant and already have two crotch goblins. Please do not use the term bloated cunt so loosely. You have no idea what prenatals do to your bowels and I do not take bloated cunt jokes lightly. I’m going to name my current hemorrhoid after you just for saying that. #feelingoffended #mybuttholeisasnowflake
      4. If Bristol didn’t off herself while dealing with this penis head prize then she sure as fuck isn’t going to from public ridicule on a blog. Unless you know the daily shame it feels like to be in these shoes, kindly shut your fucking dick muncher.
      5. Your mom probably told you that you ruined everything all the time …so you know that’s not nice, Drakey Poo.

      Have a nice day. I’ll tell Lil’ Drake you said hi!

    i know it takes courage to open up. Many women (and some men) are victims at one point in life. Over coming the effects it has on your life is very hard. thank you Bristol for turning your awful years into a source to help others… the blog is one thing, but what you are doing for families is amazing. With TB reporting on things like the woman’s shelter story… where women are supposed to be protected and cared for when they are unable… and Waters beating his girl and killing dogs… these big stories are the ones that will in turn touch others lives. The more the public knows about the shit bags.. the less the shit bags get to use helpless women (people in general)

    Thanks for your honesty. All women should abstain from marriage and children until they have achieved post high school education at the very least. Go to college. Make something of yourself FIRST! If you should still desire marriage and a child, pick someone worthy. Are they truly kind? Are they educated? Do they work? I’m even going to go with eugenics on this one; look at height, weight, intelligence, mental health history of him and his family. I don’t give a shit if any turtle riders fucking egos are hurt in reading this post. This is the shit I deal with on a daily basis and no I am not referring to myself. I’m surprised turtleboy isn’t saying this is your fault. That’s his MO.

    • September 24, 2019 at 10:16 am

      Well, it was my fault. So there’s that. Live and learn. I suppose I could pick apart the cycle of dysfunction into which I was born, the lessons I was taught far before I was even cognizant enough to realize I was being taught them….but I’m really not that important in the grand scheme of things. I open myself up to some well deserved shame, because I don’t like to forget. And that shame was at one point my motivation to change. I believe in harsh reality being the great motivator.

        wow, great story… yes there is redemption for those of us who want to work at it so I get where you came from. Although we would not agree on everything, and that is OK, getting outed by someone when you were previously somewhat protected by anonymity has me concerned for your personal safety, and now leaves you in the same perilous position as Aiden WRT lawsuits, restraining orders and such things.

        For the record, I did a 16 year trip of self destruction ( alcoholic) after my Son died. I now have 17.5 years sobriety. I did a lot of things I am not proud of in those 16 years. I have been trying to correct wrongs when I am able… unfortunately my now adult children who have not wanted to see me in 27 years are one of the things I can’t ( not allowed contact) make right or apologize to. I own my past, as do you. It is what you have done once you figured out that you needed to do the right thing that counts, and what you have done to right your wrongs.

        Be safe

    Giving a fuck is not all that hard. The path to get to that point is much harder.
    Now pay it forward.
    Make sure that your children are different than you.
    That is what makes ratchets different than the rest of us: caring for someone else greater than caring for one’s self is the defining separator between healthy humans and ratchets.
    Life is about good choices and learning from mistakes.

Pulled myself up by the bootstraps and got my shit together, etc.”. Trying to make herself look better than everyone else.

      Once she starts that crap, we all know it’s time to lock our doors and windows.

      It’s so pathetic, no, SHE is so pathetic, we’ve all just learned to ignore her.
