That would be the 2015 Oscars. I didn't watch them when they were broadcast; I knew I would be sickened by them.
Tonight, Yahoo's website has a story about Lady GaGa's performance of songs from "The Sound of Music" at the Oscars. There is a video of some of the performance with the story. I just watched the first part of it.
On March 8, 2014, I went to the YMCA, where I have paid full price for a membership since last year. During all the months that I have been a member at that YMCA, I have never worked out there without being harassed at least once.
On March 8th, I was told by the person at the front desk that I would not be allowed in the building until I had first spoken to someone in management because "someone" had approached the management with an "issue" about me.
There is no question that there were cameras at least in the women's locker room. Since the YMCA has obviously decided to lie about the cameras to try to avoid the multimillion dollar lawsuits which it deserves to have brought against it, the cameras might even still be there. Since I publicly exposed the YMCA's crimes by writing and talking about them at this blog and at YouTube, I'm sure that the YMCA would have taken any excuse to make me leave.
I stayed at that YMCA even after I knew there had been cameras there because I needed a place to work out and because the locker rooms were closed for a while after I wrote about my concerns that there were cameras there and I hoped that meant that the corporate office was getting the cameras out. I did not take another shower there after the conglomerate began publicizing code stories that made me realize that the YMCA had videotaped me. I also thought that, since the conglomerate's treatment of me had resulted not only in homeless people and psychiatric patients being the victims of voyeurism in places that were trying to videotape me but that YMCA members, whom society presumably doesn't consider worthless and evil human beings, were also illegally videotaped and the knowledge of all of this hadn't stopped the conglomerate's promotion of voyeurism, I might have a better chance of not being videotaped in the YMCA where the cameras might have been removed than I would in another gym.
For the rest of their lives, people who were or are members of that YMCA can wonder how many hours of video were filmed of them in the locker rooms. They can wonder if video of them will show up on pornography websites, particularly the websites that advertise having voyeuristic videos and that seem to have no concern that law enforcement will stop them.
For the next several years, parents of children who attend that YMCA can wonder if videos of their children are being passed around among pedophiles, and whether some of those pedophiles might decide to join that gym to able to be near the children whom they have seen.

YouTube continues to refuse to erase the video montage "STOP STALKING ME: THE BEST OF LENA KOCHMAN," even though the person who published it used a picture of me for the profile picture, plagiarized the name of one of my YouTube blogs, and gave the video a fake copyright notice that he or she also pretended was written by me, in addition to having created the entire montage from copyrighted videos that the person stole from my YouTube blogs.
These are pictures of the email message that YouTube sent me today about the situation:
How many more of my real blogs will YouTube destroy, saying that my documentation of the hell that the conglomerate has made of my life is "inappropriate," while YouTube refuses to erase blogs that were created entirely to abuse me and to encourage groups of people to bully me online and in the nonvirtual world?
"STOP STALKING ME: THE BEST OF LENA KOCHMAN" has gotten 203,338 views and is one of the first search results for Internet searches of my name. It's one of the first things that prospective employers and landlords see when they search my name. I think that it and other blogs created to abuse me are probably reasons why I have gotten rejected from everywhere that I have applied for housing for the past year.
These are pictures of some of the several hundred comments that people have added to "STOP STALKING ME: THE BEST OF LENA KOCHMAN," which whoever created the video montage published at a YouTube channel that he or she called "effectsoffemaledominance," plagiarizing my YouTube blog "effectsofmaledominance" and making it seem like I want power over men instead of equality:
If I were a man, nothing that has happened to me over the past 5 years would have happened.
The conglomerate is responsible for my being sexually harassed and stalked all day, every day that I have worked, everywhere that I have worked over the past 5 years. When I was working last year, the conglomerate media never stopped publishing code stories attacking me and my workplace. The conglomerate is the reason that I was fired from two jobs in a row last summer. I had worked for Labor Ready off and on for 16 years, until I was not only fired but treated like a criminal for asking for help stopping the harassment. I don't want to be dependent on welfare; at this time, I have no choice, and the continuance of video montages such as "STOP STALKING ME: THE BEST OF LENA KOCHMAN" and blogs that call me "THE CRAZY STALKER LADY" are going to scare away every prospective employer for the rest of my life.
I'm also going to be seriously hurt. Someone, eventually, will rape, beat and kill me, because of what the conglomerate is telling the world to think about me and the way the conglomerate is telling the world to treat me.

It's not sick to harass and stalk women, to voyeuristically film them and show the videos to the world, laughing at all of the screaming protests? It's not sick to spread rumors about someone so far around the world that she is continually forced from place to place, abused and lied about everywhere, never able to start her life?
It's not sick to send a constant message of extreme violence through television shows, movies, music, and every other form of entertainment? It's not sick to promote the abuse of children?
The entertainment industry likes to produce stories about rare cases of severe and unusual mental illness. It particularly likes stories about people with multiple personalities, perhaps because actors who are drawn to those stories want to win awards by showing off the range of their acting abilities within one movie.
The entertainment industry also likes to perpetuate the stereotype that people with psychiatric diagnoses are more prone to violence than most people. The entertainment industry, much like the rest of the world, likes to keep people with a psychiatric stigma within the confines of every dehumanizing stereotype there is; that makes it easier for everyone to believe that a psychiatric problem could never happen to him or her.
I don't know how many hospitalizations I have had; I lost track of the number a few years ago. I was not yet 18 the first time that I was hospitalized; I'll be 41 this year. I have never met anyone, in a psychiatric setting or out of it, who had multiple personalities, or who was obviously having constant delusions. Everyone is an individual, and has his or her own personality. Almost everyone who spends a lot of time in the mental health care system, though, finally tends to have similar emotions that are so overwhelming that they are often taken to be character traits: sadness, anger, despair, fear, cynicism. There are also people who are so terrified by the system that they relinquish all rights to their lives, including their right to get upset about anything; psychiatric staff tend to distribute many smiles upon those patients, whom of course they don't respect any more than they respect the patients who don't dedicate what's left of their emotional resources to being cute.
There are good people who work in the mental health care system, although almost nobody who works in that system is always immune to letting a patient's diagnosis take the fall for conflict when a patient has a concern. It is also not only frustrating but dangerous to the ability of mental health care workers to stay employed when they support the idea that diagnosis and medication should be considered last resorts rather than panaceas cheerfully advertised by corporations through every known marketing scheme.

Those are pictures from today of an article about Rihanna whose search result is on the first page of Yahoo search results for her name.
Rihanna is the voice of a teenage girl in the 2015 cartoon movie produced by Dreamworks called "Home." The movie also stars a purple alien named "Oh" with a dot on its chest and a "C" shape on the left side of the dot. The movie will be in theaters on March 27th.
That's a picture from today of part of the first page of Leonardo DiCaprio's Facebook.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Rihanna have been dating for a few months. For some reason, years ago, possibly as early as 2005, Mr. DiCaprio decided he had a crush on me. When I was made aware of his feelings in 2010, I did not feel the same way, nor have I ever felt the same way. Largely because of my lack of interest in him, and the money and publicity that he and many of his fellow actors, and the entire entertainment industry, can give to politicians, I have since been persecuted past what a human being should have to endure.

There are mostly female patients at the crisis unit at Quincy Mental Health Center at this time. There are male and female bathrooms in the hallway right outside the unit; there are also bathrooms near the security desk at the far end of the hallway.
Someone was in the women's bathroom near the unit, so I went to the one near the security desk. When I left that bathroom, the male security guard coughed. I said "Don't do that again," and he said, the way many harassers do, "I coughed."
I have had enough of how they have treated me. I don't need to have yet another meeting with someone who works there who will tell me that whatever has happened is my fault.
There are nice people who work there. However, the YMCA as an organization has clearly decided to deal with its invasions of its members' privacy with denial and attacks on me. I don't need to pay people to abuse me; I get that every day for free.
Those are pictures from tonight of the first part of the first page of the Yahoo website.
I read the article about the kindergarten teacher who videotaped his students in the bathroom; that's why the section for that article doesn't look like the others.
It's unbelievable that the section about that horrible crime is on the same page as the section that says "12 Tiny Homes That Prove Small Is Beautiful (12 photos) PopSugar Home." What does the conglomerate think that its promotion of child abuse is causing; something other than child abuse?

Places and organizations that help people who have psychiatric histories to gather for discussion, activities and mutual support significantly reduce hospitalizations and therefore also reduce health care costs.
It is very socially and professionally stigmatizing to have a psychiatric diagnosis. Many people, if you'll pardon the term, act crazy around and toward people whom they know have psychiatric diagnoses or have been hospitalized. The abuses, stress and isolation that result from the stigma never stop throughout the lifetime of a person who is psychiatrically stigmatized. Sadly, those pressures are often the direct cause of suicide for people with psychiatric histories, and society's callousness toward the people whom it has bullied to death is then excused by blaming mental illness for those suicides.
People who have access to places and organizations where their life problems are personally understood and taken seriously by other people who have the same problems are able to be much more stable and productive in their lives outside of those support gatherings. To take away that support is both costly and life-threatening.

Those are pictures from today of a Guardian article about Emma Watson.
Emma Watson should never have been chosen to be a UN Ambassador. With the occasional pause, she has worked tirelessly since 2010 to undermine the rights of women and children. Privileged all her life, she doesn't have the slightest idea of what the lives of most people are like. She is also using her fame to continue a personal vendetta against me and to promote child abuse.
It's better to have an education than not to have one. Unfortunately, having a college degree doesn't guarantee that someone will be a good person or have the capacity for independent thought. Ms. Watson is proof of that.

It's parked outside the building that I'm in. The license plate is R77-525.
When I was walking to the Quincy Center train station, a UPS trucks and two FEDEX trucks were parked by the side of the street within one block. A U.S. Postal Service worker also walked out of a building and past me.
This is what YouTube has to say about my request that the video "STOP STALKING ME: THE BEST OF LENA KOCHMAN" be removed from YouTube:
I don't even know how many times YouTube has destroyed my real blogs, yet it allows that video, "STOP STALKING ME: THE BEST OF LENA KOCHMAN." That video was created by someone who took a bunch of videos that I had published of people stalking me. The person set them to music and then called the channel he or she used to publish it "effectsoffemaledominance," to mimic my real YouTube blog, "effectsofmaledominance." The person also gave the video a copyright notice which he or she pretended was written by me.
There are several hundred comments at that blog, most of which are detogatory to me, and many of which call me a c--- who deserves to be hit or killed.
YouTube has destroyed my blogs in the past when I have shown the horrendous abuse to which I am subjected every day. It has destroyed my blogs when I have published videos that showed the most blatant stalking, and people physically threatening me. It destroyed the blog I had before I was in the hospital in October of 2014; when I went to the hospital, the blog was working. YouTube destroyed the blog while I was in the hospital, where I could not use my phone and had no Internet access.
YouTube has always promoted the conglomerate's agenda, and its persecution of me has never stopped.

There is nothing that the conglomerate does or wants to do that is not a horrible abuse of humanity. However, the conglomerate's specific abuse of me, every day for five years, and the injuries inflicted on me because of it, my continuing stigmatization and inability to secure permanent housing, the SICK, SADISTIC, ILLEGAL videos of me that I'll have to deal with for the rest of my life, have all gotten to me. Lately, I've been feeling that evil has conquered the world, and all I can do is try to survive.
I know that other people are fighting the conglomerate; hopefully, they'll do better at that than I can at this time.
You couldn't just leave me alone? A lot of people seem to feel that the way to deal with what has happened to me is to create drama from it that stars them. Maybe it makes them feel better, but it doesn't actually address the situation, and it is often misleading about me.
For the rest of my life, I'll be dealing with a lot of real, unwanted drama because of what has happened to me. What needs to happen is that federal laws get passed and enforced to stop what has happened to me from happening to other people.
I don't want to be uncharitable to people who might have meant to be nice, even though the result of their efforts was offensive, so I'll suggest this; where are the music videos that show people sending emails to their congress people, telling them to stop voyeurism and involuntary pornography? That would be electrifying.
