A Controversial Fundraiser
There is a fundraiser to help Gregory Sherl fight his OCD by contributing towards the costs of an inpatient treatment program.
There is also a statement from Kat Dixon in which she accuses Sherl of “constant physical, emotional, and sexual abuse.”
Andrew Keating, publisher of Cobalt Press, wrote the following on Facebook a little earlier this evening:
When I first saw Gregory Sherl’s bullshit fundraiser, I was conflicted. I want the dude to get help, but I also think that he should be forced into hardship for the terrible things he’s done to people. Recovery from the type of behavior that Sherl has been accustomed to getting away with should not be easy, and he should not be permitted to exploit our good nature, especially when it is good-natured people that he has so terribly exploited and abused in the past.
Yes, I am aware that this fundraiser is tied to an affliction that he is categorizing as OCD; however, I’m not about to assume that a man beating on his wife because she couldn’t get a stain out of his shirt is a simple matter of an obsessive need for cleanliness.
Thanks to Kat Dixon for so plainly reminding us that we should not be supporting those who abuse or take advantage of women.
