Apart from his paper on Manson, Dylan’s behavior suggest that he was deliberately following in the footsteps of Manson and his family. Besides Eric and Dylan’s well-known nicknames (VoDka and REB), the boys had other nicknames they apparently only used between themselves. Dylan was “Green” and Eric was “Indigo.” In the 1970s, Manson created the Order of the Rainbow and assigned his core followers nicknames: Squeaky Fromme was Red, Sandra Good was Blue, Susan Atkins was Violet, Leslie Van Houten was Green, Patricia Krenwinkle was Yellow, and Nancy Pitman was Gold. It appears that Eric and Dylan copied the Order of the Rainbow.
Various forms of the word “pig” were favorite terms of Manson and his family. At one murder site, the followers wrote “Political Piggy.” At another, they wrote the word “Pig.” At the third, “Death to Pigs.” Each time the words were written in the victim’s blood. On the same page of Eric’s yearbook where Dylan addressed Eric as Indigo and signed himself as Green, he wrote about looking forward to killing “pigs” and a “piglet.” Dylan also used the word “piggies” in a short story about the mass murder of students he wrote foTr school several weeks before the attack. The most obvious imitation of Manson’s followers occurred when Dylan spray-painted “Death to Pigs” on a pawnshop.
Finally, Manson and his followers referred repeatedly to a coming “judgment day,” which apparently was going to be a day of mass murder. On the morning of April 20, 1999, Eric filmed Dylan saying, “Hey Mom, I gotta go. It’s about a half hour till judgment day.”
Perhaps once again Dylan was following in the footsteps of Manson and his family.
Dylan not only surrendered his identity to the influence of Eric Harris to become a pseudopsychopath, but was also shaped by what he read about Manson. Dylan’s comments in his journal about death can be seen in a new light when read alongside his paper on Manson. In addition, his use of terminology adopted from Manson’s family suggests he used them as models.

So….. Laci Green? Anita Sarkeesian? Emma Watson? Taylor Swift? Patricia Arquette? Anybody? Are there any self-proclaimed feminist “superheroes” out there that are going to say ANYTHING about Adam Sandler’s racism and misogyny? I mean there are people who swear up and down that there are white feminists who are mad about this movie but where are they? How come Black Widow getting called a slut gets more immediate outrage over Native women being abused? Ya’ll ain’t shit.
EDIT: As it turns out, Anita Sarkeesian did mention the Ridiculous Six controversy on her Twitter and actually brought it up pretty early on once the news got out. Somehow it slipped under the radar and I did not notice it. I’m happy she brought it up and I apologize for attacking her.
SECOND EDIT: Patricia Arquette has also made a comment on her Twitter and while it isn’t specifically about Adam Sandler or the Ridiculous Six it’s good to know she’s at least acknowledging it in light of the controversy.
Hi guys! So i wrote this fic that everyone was so excited about, I had fun writing it but I’m really not confident about this fic. I still wrote it, this is exact 900 words. Hope you guys enjoy it.
Ah, Spring Court, my mom’s old court. The manor was a rose
covered prison just as mom described it. Mom and I relaxed our glamour’s and
let the tendrils of night roll of us. The guards at the gate paled. My mom
smirked and said,” Why if it isn’t Bron and Hart, my old bodyguards.” I stifled
a laugh-mom had bodyguards, no wonder she hated this place. Both of the guards
went inside. I looked at mom, she smiled. I smiled back and moments later two
blonde guys were walking toward us. Mom slipped her High Lady mask back on and
said,” Tamlin.” He gave a smug look and answered,” Feyre.” His tone had a hint
of surprise and shock. Mom gestured toward me saying, “This is my daughter
Vivian, Princess and Heir of Night Court.”Tamlin and the boy standing beside
him looked at me like they were expecting some else. Tamlin patted the boy’s
shoulder and said,” This is Jonas, my son and the Prince and Heir of Spring
Court.”I looked at Tamlin, seeing that he had an artificial arm and leg. Jonas
was eyeing me so I gave him a smirk and flipped my brassy hair.
