Reader: 12 year old’s and Raniere ‘doesn’t give a flying crap about reason’

It was no joke that Rhiannon at age 13 had a hard time accepting the sexual desires of Mr. Raniere, age 31. For one thing his tongue would get bruised and almost lacerated by her braces. She later told the Times Union that she reported the matter to the police. They asked her to wear a wire. She was too afraid and they chose not to prosecute Mr. Raniere.
HE’S A DUMBASS writes that Keith Raniere’s “a dumbass. Many man made/and or religious laws are based on natural law, and hence reason. When it is enforced that the age of consent is eighteen in the US, it is because the law would rather err on the side of caution than not in the general case, in order to be sure that a woman has physically developed enough for sex and is mentally, psychologically, and emotionally mature enough to make her own decisions so that she isn’t taken advantage of by guys like him. It’s not rooted in some arbitrary number post puberty just because.

“Raniere just wants to have sex with any woman he’s attracted to no matter the age – except for maybe prepubescent females – whether they are a teenager or an adult. He doesn’t give a flying crap about reason.”


Raniere on the other hand has not commented on this allegation. However at least one woman went on the record who claims she was 12 years old when Raniere started having sex with her. She claims he had sex with her some 60 times. She ultimately ran away from home to escape this 30 year old man having sex with her at age 12.

And for years she sought counseling.

Was it the man made laws that created the confusion in her? If the law did not condemn Raniere’s alleged actions would she not have been so upset?

Or was she just at age 12 not ready for sex? Was she too young? Despite the law was she just a child who should have been shown tenderness and adult care when she was lured to the house to be taught algebra and to walk Raniere’s girlfriend, Pam Cafritz’s dog?

Raniere has to date chosen not to comment on this blog. We are hopeful that he will accept our always open invitation in the near future.

As the Vanguard of NXIVM/Executive Success Programs [ESP] he may be able to present to the reader an entirely different perspective on these matters which is beyond the scope of comprehension of the average person.

Rhiannon claims she was only 12 when Raniere, then 30, started having sex with her. Raniere, 55, whose bio claims he is noted as one of the top three problem solvers in the world, perhaps sought the girl’s best interest when he decided she was ready for sex at age 12. Rhiannon however claims he created many enduring problems for her.  Perhaps she will come to understand in time that Raniere meant to help her, or perhaps she will go to her grave believing Raniere, to satisfy his own lust, took advantage of her when she was a child.

His work has been cited in hundreds of news outlets, like The New York Times, The Daily Mail, VICE News, CBS News, Fox News, New York Post, New York Daily News, Oxygen, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, The Sun, The Times of London, CBS Inside Edition, among many others in all five continents.

Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest. This was ironic, as many credit Parlato as one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.
