I “met” Faye Ku (Which, in this case is ironically somewhat idem sonans with “Fuck You”) online, on facebook. I liked her wit, her authenticity and willingness to exist outside of what was expected.
Faye Ku, my new folk heroine.
I recently learned that she was on a wanted persons list. It is alleged that she kidnapped her own sons (Sage Cook and Isaac Cook) from their father, who has legal custody (at least on paper) of the boys.
Faye is gone… I was shocked, because I felt like I knew her.
In my walk, I’ve seen enough things to know that most of what is presented in the media is the exact opposite behind the scenes.
This case appears to be a bitter story of conformity and normalcy versus individuality and courage.
From the several articles and stories online that are done by news agencies, this one really set things in a much clearer light for me.
BELLEVUE FATHER PLEADS FOR RETURN OF SONS. In this article, David Cook, probably of Bellevue, Washington, and reported to be Harvard educated, says of Faye Ku “She doesn’t always have the best decision-making skills.” I got a chuckle out of this comment, because it is self-disparaging to Cook, if applied to her “decision-making” when hooking up with him.
But what really angered me, what set me against the Cooks, and turned me to the visualization that Faye Ku is a folk heroine is this article: MISSING BROTHERS LEAVE VOID.
QUOTE from the above linked article:
“During David Cook’s divorce with the boys’ mother, Faye Ku, education had been a point of contention. As a Harvard graduate, Cook valued traditional schooling. Ku, meanwhile, was a proponent of ‘unschooling.’ (emphasis added)
Unschooling is reportedly a method of self-directed homeschooling that puts the drive and responsibility for learning in the hands of the child, according to Home Education Magazine. It was one of many intense views Ku holds, David said; she also believes vaccinations cause diseases.”
Without going into the validity or invalidity of her beliefs, I want to stay clear on the fact that the WORST thing they could launch in her direction (other than the alleged absconding and kidnapping of her own sons) is that she believes in “unschooling” and is alleged to believe that vaccines cause diseases. (Anti-vax)
Instead of coming out publicly and pointing to an instance where Ku may have been alleged to bring harm to the boys, they choose to reveal that she’s an unschooler and anti-vaccine. WTF?
So, being an individual, and a non-conformist must be really offensive to this “Hahvahd” edumacated guy, David Cook.
Let’s just label this story for what it appears to be: “CONformity” against “Individuality.”
This undeniable attempt to demonize her simply for her individuality and her power of choice is very relevant in defining the mindset and psychopathic appearance that this gives the father.
It is just my opinion, but damn, this jab at her daring to have an opinion that is different on vaccines and schooling is really first-grade bullying. And this guy went to “Hahvahd”. That must make him the Yod in the YHVH.
One friend said, in response to Cook’s revelations about Ku: “If he [Cook] hoped to garner sympathy, he shouldn’t have made his contempt for her so crystal clear.“
Here’s what I know. Love is allowance. Love is without fear, hate, control, ownership, demand for a specific outcome, or harm to any party. And while the Cooks may feel harmed, I’d bet my left nut that Faye Ku LOVES her sons. What really harms a child, or even an adult, is to remove their power of choice. To use this in a way that denys or belittles true love is an egregious evil. LOVE desires connection. LOVE wants intimacy without judgment.
Without knowing anything about the case, I’d bet that “Hahvahd” was lawyered up, and Faye got the shaft in the custody hearings. And, I’d bet that Faye has more courage in one hair follicle than “Hahvahd” has on the presumed silver spoon up his ass.
Fuck You, “Hahvahd.” I encourage Faye Ku (wherever she may be) to run like Forrest Gump, and may you never see them again, until your children can express how they really feel about this.
There is no justice in the “justice system”, and yet, it seems, for however long it may last, that you just got served.
In my book, Faye Ku is a Folk HEROINE!
