As she guided me through these incredible eighteen years, I don’t know if she ever realized that the person I most wanted to be was her. Thank you, Mom: you are my guidepost for everything.

Someone reblogged my post about Pedro’s actions with the tag “John Donaldson is the most at fault” and yeah obviously he’s a complete worthless piece of shit (for reasons that I hope are explained at some point?), but he didn’t MAKE Claudio (or Pedro) do anything. He fed them lies, and what they chose to do with those lies (public humiliation rather than private confrontation, not respecting someone they claim to care about enough to give the benefit of the doubt) speaks volumes about their characters. Their weak, weak characters.

As for Claudio, I firmly believe that if John hadn’t done anything he would have exploded over something else. He is holding Hero dancing with Pedro when she was single against her. That is how much he thinks he owns her. Sooner or later he’d explode over her hugging a male friend, getting a ride home from a friend of Leo’s or staying alone with a male classmate to work on some project.

I agree with you about Claudio. Dude needs to learn how to control his rage and jealousy, and also communicate effectively. Btw, jealousy is a major red flag indicating potential abusers. From “Why Does He Do That? Inside the Minds of Angry and Controlling Men” by Lundy Bancroft (bolding added by me):

Jealous behavior is one of the surest signs that abuse is down the road. Possessiveness masquerades as love. A man may say: “I’m sorry I got so bent out of shape about you talking to your ex-boyfriend, but I’ve never been so crazy about a woman before. I just can’t stand thinking of you with another man.” He may call five times a day keeping track of what you are doing all the time or insist on spending every evening with you. His feelings for you probably are powerful, but that’s not why he wants constant contact; he is keeping tabs on you, essentially establishing that you are his domain. All of these behaviors are about ownership, not love.

Jealous feelings are not the same as behaviors. A man with some insecurities may naturally feel anxious about your associations with other men, especially ex-partners, and might want some reassurance. But if he indicates that he expects you to give up your freedom to accommodate his jealousy, control is creeping up. Your social life shouldn’t have to change because of his insecurities.

Possessiveness shows that he doesn’t love you as an independent human being but rather as a guarded treasure.

Claudio’s behavior even went beyond normal insecurity before Hero’s birthday. Remember when he wouldn’t let Hero walk with any other boy (all of them his friends too!) to get pizza?

Here’s the footage from last Saturday night. I didn’t want to put it up because I thought it would come across as sensational. However, people have already uploaded edited footage from their phones onto facebook, and, personally, I don’t believe the situation has been fairly represented. Here is an unbiased point of view. 

I am sorry if putting this up is offensive to anyone. However, I didn’t think it could wait any longer. 

Hero, if you read this, call me back.

I’m really wondering what that last line implies. I was thinking that Hero might be in a hospital, but if she was, wouldn’t Ursula know about it? Theories?

I don’t think Ursula would upload the video without checking first if it was ok, at least with Bea if Hero wasn’t in condition to answer. I think this is the beggining of the plan and Ursula is just pretending to not be in touch with Hero.

Ooh, interesting! I’m liking this theory. It makes more sense to me than Bea and Hero shutting Ursula out.
