This is what Creepy Wally Sounds Like
Disturbing audio released by the New York Police Dept. after a sting operation against Harvey Weinstein, offers a glimpse of a predator in action. Saying “no” repeatedly, did nothing to deter him. He merely brushed aside the woman’s refusals and encouraged the Italian actress, age 22, to comply with what he wanted.
Ms. Guitierrez said no, four times! Notice Harvey’s tone and his constant urging her forward — as if it’s safe for her to be alone in his hotel room with him. He speaks as if he is in charge and she needs to comply with his requests (demands).
And what does Harvey say? “Now, you’re embarrassing me.”
The predator doesn’t want to be embarrassed because the woman turned down his lecherous advances. Ms. Guitierrez, trying to be reasonable in an unreasonable situation said, “I need to know a person, to be touched.”
Years later, karma is ensuring that Harvey gets a proper dose of embarrassment for his dominating behavior. Thank you, Harvey Weinstein for another lesson on how to spot a Creepy Wally attack.

Predatory Behavior 101
Ever since Eve took a bite out of that apple in the Garden of Eden, snakes have had a bad reputation as seducers making you do something, you later regret. In this poem from 1829, the villain is a spider and the victim is a fly. And yes, people still need the lesson in this children’s poem in the sophisticated world of today because those seducing snakes are still out there.
There’s a difference in how the opening line is delivered in some versions. Saying, “will you walk into my parlour” implies that the decision is yours to make. Saying, “come into my parlour” sounds more like a demand.
Grooming is the predatory act of maneuvering someone into a position that makes them more isolated, dependent, likely to trust, and more vulnerable to abusive behavior.
And that makes the Creepy Wally poem called, “The Spider and the Fly” (below) absolutely terrifying.
The Spider and the Fly
“Will you walk into my parlour?” said the Spider to the Fly,
“Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy.
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I have many curious things to show, when you are there.” [grooming]
“Oh no, no,” said the little Fly, “To ask me, is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair, can ne’er come down again.” [no]
“I’m sure you must be weary, dear, with soaring up so high.
Will you rest upon my little bed?” said the Spider to the Fly.
“There are pretty curtains drawn around.
The sheets are fine and thin,
And if you’d like to rest awhile, I’ll snugly, tuck you in.” [grooming]
“Oh no, no,” said the little Fly, “For I’ve often heard it said,
They never, never wake again, who sleep upon your bed.” [no]
Said the cunning Spider to the Fly, “Dear friend, what can I do,
To prove the warm affection, I’ve always felt for you?
I have within my pantry, good store of all that’s nice.
I’m sure you’re very welcome. Will you please to take a slice?” [grooming]
“Oh no, no,” said the little Fly, “Kind Sir, that cannot be,
I’ve heard what’s in your pantry and I do not wish to see!” [no]
“Sweet creature!” said the Spider, “You’re witty and you’re wise.
How handsome are your gauzy wings.
How brilliant are your eyes!
I’ve a little looking-glass upon my parlour shelf,
If you’ll step in one moment, dear, you shall behold yourself.” [grooming]
“I thank you, gentle sir,” she said, “for what you ‘re pleased to say,
And bidding you good morning now, I’ll call another day.” [no]
The Spider turned him round about and went into his den.
For well he knew, the silly Fly would soon come back again.
So, he wove a subtle web, in a little corner sly.
And set his table ready, to dine upon the Fly. [patience]
Then he came out to his door again, and merrily did sing,
“Come hither, hither, pretty Fly, with the pearl and silver wing.
Your robes are green and purple.
There’s a crest upon your head;
Your eyes are like the diamond bright, but mine are dull as lead!” [setting the trap]
Alas, alas! How very soon, this silly little Fly,
Hearing wily, flattering words, came slowly flitting by.
With buzzing wings, she hung aloft, then near and nearer drew.
Thinking only of her brilliant eyes and green and purple hue.
Thinking only of her crested head, poor foolish thing. [seduced]
At last, up jumped the cunning Spider, and fiercely held her fast.
He dragged her up his winding stair into his dismal den.
Within his little parlour, but she ne’er came out again! [TRAPPED!]
And now, dear little children, who may this story read,
To idle, silly flattering words, I pray you ne’er give heed.
Unto an evil counselor, close [shut] heart and ear and eye,
And take a lesson from this tale, of the Spider and the Fly. [Stay away from Creepy Wally]
