    Beauty Guru Confronts her Rapist Online

    Warning -- the video is hard to watch. It made me cry.

    This is the damage that rapists cause, especially the ones who rape kids.

    When subscribers check to see Brie Lybrand's latest YouTube video, they're expecting to watch one of her typical, upbeat beauty and shopping tutorials. So when "The New Orleans Beauty Guru" posted her latest video entitled "A Message To My Rapist," the world took notice.

    Lyrbrand, a former pageant star, appears shaken and makeup-free as she makes her unexpected announcement. "I just got an email from YouTube saying that the man who raped me for most of my life subscribed to me," she says with disgust. "The man that took my virginity, robbed me of an innocence has subscribed to me on YouTube and is watching my videos."

    The aspiring actress and Tulane graduate looks directly into the camera as she reveals that it was her father who abused her. "My father, Steven Bressler, molested, tortured and raped me from the time I was four until I was 13 years old," she says.

    As the video progresses, Lybrand describes how she grew up to become her high school's cheerleading captain, go to college and become both and actor and a teacher. One of the most shocking visuals of the clip comes when she displays the three guns she's purchased for protection. "I don't have to be afraid anymore. Let me show you my weapon collection, dad," she says. "I carry guns everywhere I go in case you decide to show up... You're never going to touch me again."

    Wow. Holy crap, if she's faking it she deserves a freaking Oscar. She brought tears to my eyes. I want to kill him myself. My god, the poor child.

    I can't help but wonder why no one in her family was able to get justice?

    I didn't watch the video but I know that in some states there is a statute of limitations on these types of crimes...sadly.

    So, uh....now we know who the dude is. And by "we", I mean, all of her other subscribers...her fans. Seems to me as getting his address shouldn't be to much of a biggy. After all, he has a youtube account. At the least, finding his IP addy should be no stretch for the right sorts of folks.

    I'm not saying this guy should be getting a visit sometime soon...because that would be advocating vigilante justice.

    But you know...it's out there.

    Motive is too easy to pin.

    Re: Beauty Guru Confronts her Rapist Online

    This kind of news is very tragic. I am glad she took a stand and shed light on what happened. There are thousands of women and men who have similar stories of sexual abuse as children. I have a friend that went through sexual abuse as a child. When he was an adult, he finally convinced the police to wiretap him and he got a confession out of his abuser. After not hearing back from the police for several weeks, he contacted them and they said they couldn't do anything because the statue of limitation was up 6 months prior to him getting the confession from his perpetrator.

    There should be no statue of limitation on this. The effect it has on a person is with them their entire life. I am still dealing with witnessing my father sexually abuse my brother when I was around 5 or 6. That memory is still fresh in my mind like it happened today. My deepest sympathies for all who have suffered. I understand what they are going through.
    Scientific fact: If you took all of the veins from your body and laid them end to end, you would die.

    I'd bet it's a statute of limitations issue. Why there's a statute of limitations on rape in some places, I don't know. Maybe they think there are too many problems with people's memories after too much time. There doesn't appear to be anything wrong with Brie Lybrand's memory.
