All the evidence that GRLCVLT is a literal cult
This is a detailed exposé of Annaliese Nielsen’s cult of personality known as GRLCVLT. Annaliese Nielsen became (in)famous after berating a Lyft driver in an incident known as Hulagate.
In early June of this year, when the infamous Stanford rapist, Brock Turner, was sentenced to an anemic term of three months for his crime, there erupted a predictable outrage. Beyond Turner himself, the majority of the opprobrium was directed at the judge, Aaron Persky. Practically every political alignment agreed that the sentence was simply too weak for the nature of the crime. Once an opinion becomes sufficiently universal, simply holding that opinion can no longer be a litmus test for morality. As such, not every voice raised against Persky and Turner was entirely wholesome. One of those voices was GRLCVLT.
GRLCVLT reared their heads in perfect step with the internet outrage over the Turner case, putting on an event called “FUCK RAPE CULTURE”. 1000 people showed up to the event, where they signed a petition to unseat Judge Persky. As might be expected, there followed a brief whirlwind of positive press for GRLCVLT. Most of the press consisted of fawning interviews of the group’s New York chapter leader, whom we will call RH. RH revealed that the group did not have a public web presence and that potential members would have to be first nominated by one current member and vouched for by two more. RH continued, “If you invite someone, you invite that girl in your life who is that conscious, caring, driven person you would invite to dinner with your parents or have bail you out of jail.”
The group formerly known as “Girls’ Night In”
While the press made it seem as though GRLCVLT had appeared out of nowhere, the group had made the news before under its previous name, “Girls’ Night In”. One article describes it as such:
‘Girls Night In’—or GNI, as its members call it—is like a giant online slumber party, one that never ends, slips into your pocket and can be called upon at any moment in the day that you need it. It is a constant stream of brutally frank chatter about relationships, work, sex, race, gender and, yes, cats, along with a bizarrely large quantity of nude selfies. It is made up mainly of women in their 20s and 30s who live in the Los Angeles area. Among its ranks are Instagram-famous models, former reality show contestants, celebrity makeup artists and the quasi-famous girlfriend of a very famous singer.
“Girls’ Night In” started in 2014 as a more restrictive subgroup of a larger online club called “Girls’ Night Out” (GNO), which itself had begun as “a few hundred girls from the L.A. party scene but ballooned into a monster group with tens of thousands of members.” GNI came about because the members in “Girls’ Night Out” had begun sharing extremely personal stories and even nude pictures, illustrating the need for a much more exclusive group.
Press coverage of GNI focused on the social aspect of the group. It was billed, rather cringingly, as an “online sorority”, a place to seek “advice on hook-ups, introductions to business connections, or even the chance to compare medical symptoms.” The group subsequently changed its name to GRLCVLT and came out as a more feminist-focused organization. At least, that’s what they wanted the world to believe.
The disturbing reality
“It’s misogyny that we’re taught to inflict on each other at a really young age … We’re exhausted by a society that teaches us to compete with each other, but we aren’t drama.”
– RH (The person who ran Girls Night In in New York)
An otherwise reverential article about “Girls’ Night In”, published in March of this year, included some quotes that may have served as an alarm bell if anyone reading were so inclined to read into it.
The rules of membership read even stricter: “EVERYTHING POSTED IN THIS GROUP IS PRIVATE, TOP SECRET AND SHOULD REMAIN IN THIS GROUP. SHARING INFO OR POSTS FROM THIS GROUP WITH OTHERS WILL RESULT IN EXPULSION FROM THE GROUP AND PUBLIC SHAMING.”
Perhaps more worrying is this next one.
What’s different about ‘Girls Night In’ is the outsize role that the group plays in its members’ lives: many of its users submit their every decision, large and small, to the group, for its members’ feedback in real time. Many members post up to 10 times a day, and comment on other posts dozens of times more. (Women who don’t comment regularly are booted from the group.) Rather than turning to one or two really good friends for advice, the women of ‘Girls Night In’ consult a carefully curated crowd, constantly.
“It’s my life,” one 32-year-old member told me, echoing the comments of many others. “I rarely go on ‘normcore’ Facebook, as we call it. The group is my community, it is my support system. I almost always have the page open and am engaged in it most of the day between real life.”
The group clearly consumes a large portion of these girls’ lives.
I whiled away hours on the group Facebook page and spoke with more than two dozen members. Most of them told me that they spend up to six hours daily interacting with the group, and that its members now make up the vast majority of their offline social network, too. Multiple women told me the group’s dominance in their lives had created rifts with their best friends and romantic partners.
The article even refers to the group as a “hive mind”.
It is isolating in a way—the group has its own language and political point of view and a specific kind of moral code. To be part of the group’s hive mind, you need to fit in, and that means adopting group-wide social norms. At least publicly, the women all seem to support Bernie and abortion and Kim Kardashian’s right to post as many nude selfies as she likes. Members who stray from these norms sometimes find themselves alienated or even chastised. Sometimes it eventually causes them to leave.
If all of this is starting to sound familiar, it should. A few months before Annaliese’s Lyft video went viral, this comment turned up on an article about GRLCVLT.
GRLCVLT, aka Girls’ Night In, is a cult.
The cult is run by Annaliese Nielsen, the “star” of our website, and her repulsive second-in-command, the porn “star” Jenna Valentine (also known as Jenna Nicole Smith, and whose real name is Jennifer). The name isn’t just some attempt at hipsterish snark. The pseudo-feminist babble about “intersectionality”, “privilege”, and “patriarchy” are in fact disingenuous fictions peddled by Annaliese Nielsen in the same way a religion preaches scripture, dogma, and commandments; they are a lever that Nielsen uses to manipulate her faithful.
Annaliese and Jenna, as well as their minions, claim that GRLCVLT exists for the welfare and empowerment of women, however their actions suggest something far different. To start with:
- We know this because Annaliese Nielsen is the founder of porn site, GodsGirls, which objectifies women, as well as at least one underage girl (we will cover more on this soon).
- There are also rumors abounding that Nielsen uses GodsGirls as a pimping operation. We have received tips from several sources corroborating this, but we are still looking for solid enough proof to claim it as fact, as we adhere to an extremely high standard of evidence.
And it is evidence we will provide to you here. We will demonstrate that GRLCVLT was created to cynically exploit and abuse women, not help them. Here for the first time is an insider’s look at the workings of GRLCVLT.
A hydra with many heads
GRLCVLT / GNI had many different subgroups, all run by Annaliese Nielsen. Here are the ones we know about.
- Fur Baby Friendship Club – Discussion about pets
- Olive Oil Friendship Club – Discussion about cooking
- Bae Area – GNI Bay Area (we wish we were making that name up…)
- Beauty and Style Friendship Club
- GNI San Diego
- GRLCVLT New York
- Happy Garden Friendship Club
- GNI Marketplace – Selling belongings
- Mommy club
- Jewish club
- Fit club – Apparently they somehow broke off and now have no connection to GNI
- Sober Living Club
- Interior Design Friendship Club
- Intersectional Feminist Friendship Club
- 50 Shades of Bae – For women of color
- Fur Baby Rescue Club
- Bernie Sanders Friendship Club
- Higher Education Friendship Club
- Travel Friendship Club
Some of the first leaks we got involved the disgusting posts being made in the GRLCVLT / GNI groups. The number of likes that some of these posts got should tell you something about the mentality.
One member asks people to share their most controversial beliefs. It turns out she approves of incest and eating dogs and cats.
That same member also shared a sex story that involves a body fluid we had never even considered before: pus.
The group encouraged people to make these damning self-confessions precisely so they could be used against them. Scientology does the exact same thing with its “auditing sessions”, which are presented as a way to unburden your soul, but in fact are simply blackmail collection exercises. To make matters worse, the extreme “social justice” culture likely encouraged these young women to make up increasingly more ridiculous claims about themselves to show who was the most “unique”, but in turn, they would open themselves up to greater humiliation.
Brainwashing and dogma
These next shots transcend the shocking and enters the surreal. The behavior depicted includes shades of Jim Jones and Kim Jong Un.
Part of the religion of SJWism is an obsession with a fictional sin called “cultural appropriation”. This is a SJWist misnomer for the natural process of cultural diffusion and transfer that happens in a multicultural society. Their cult is devoted to shaming and shunning those who display anything that Annaliese Nielsen describes as cultural appropriation. We have four separate examples from four separate sources. It really has to be seen to be believed.
Remember, GRLCVLT was supposedly created to help women in a misogynistic world. One member makes a perfectly sensible and logical post here.
Annaliese Nielsen then starts publicly naming and shaming members who liked that post. One of Annaliese's toadies comes in, sycophantically backing her up.
Another girl also joins in the pig pile. Annaliese is triggered because people aren’t begging to remain in her twisted cult.
One member who we saw in several instances really enjoying being part of the hive mind chimes in.
We’re not sure what this person is “oh god”ing about.
Did she really say PURGED?.
Calling this gibberish “Kool-Aid” is unfair to Kool-Aid because even Jim Jones's death cocktail was not this poisonous.
The next example is a photograph of a screen so a little harder to read, but it’s basically the exact same thing happening again. Someone makes a post defending people’s right to wear their hair however the fuck they want. Annaliese's toady returns to spew nonsense and is joined by Toady #2.
Annaliese Nielsen returns with her same Stalinist tactic. When two members cave in and un-like the post, Annaliese continues the inquisition, demanding to know why they had the temerity to think something and express it.
Toady #2 bullies another member.
What is scary is how enthusiastic Toady #1 is. She was not even given any real power by Annaliese and was truly just another cog in the machine, and yet she was among the most fervent persecutors of Wrongthink within the cult.
This girl outright advocates cyber-bullying.
One girl has the sheer nerve to state her opinion and another enforces the cult dogma right on cue.
We have a fourth example which illustrates that not only are Annaliese’s minions frighteningly brainwashed, but dumber than the dumbest rocks in Dumbfuckistan. Just read.
This girl posts a photo of her braids.
Another girl decides to accuse the first girl of wearing cornrows(!) which of course is “appropriation” (which of course is not a real thing). The first girl responds that they are Dutch braids. The other girl says – we wish we were making this up – “Dutch braids are cornrows”.
The girl with the braids tries to use reason but she forgets that reason doesn’t work with brainwashed religious nutjobs, which these girls are. They tell her to go read the Gospel of Annaliese for answers. It’s scary to think that these people VOTE.
We also have reports of a Hispanic woman being excommunicated from the group for wearing Dia De Los Muertos makeup. We can’t make this shit up.
A pattern of verbal abuse and belittlement
Annaliese Nielsen makes it clear who runs the show here and she enjoys putting down people in small ways any chance she can get. What is it that the left call this? Microaggressions? I think that’s it…
She clearly does not show much empathy for those with social anxiety.
Here is another example of Annaliese threatening people into coming to her events. They must not be very good.
Exhibit 3 – Annaliese gaslights her members
Perhaps no screenshots better illustrate the character of Annaliese Nielsen than this series. It begins when Annaliese declares the group is not only not a democracy, but that the rules may be changed randomly and without warning. She also mentions that she encourages trolling, although we have no further details on what she means here. She ends with a platitude about friendship.
Two members respond by questioning this declaration respectfully, and notably, using the ideologically “correct” narrative of men being villains. Annaliese is triggered by this.
When the members respond, still in a deferential manner, Annaliese lashes out like an unbalanced person. Even now, the members respond respectfully. A girl asks that “ableist” language (“moron”?) be removed. Again, this fits perfectly with Annaliese’s dogma, but Annaliese clearly does not believe her own bullshit.
Sensing the not-so-subtle sarcasm, one girl reminds Annaliese of the very rules that Annaliese wrote. Annaliese responds with more puerile sarcasm.
The girl is trying to diffuse the situation without completely kissing Annaliese’s putrid backside and Annaliese responds with something mind-boggling. She considers the word “catty” as anti-feminist, suggesting that catty behavior is inherent to women. Annaliese Nielsen is not just sexist against men, but women too!
Exhibit 4 – Annaliese mocks the suicide of a member’s cousin
What more can be said about this??
We did, in fact, confirm from other sources that Annaliese taunted this woman with suicide emojis. Here is one screenshot.
Double standards: Annaliese and then everyone else
Cults of personality often involve a set of highly dogmatic rules that the mere mortals must follow while the leader gets to do what they want. In North Korea, the people must revere their “Dear Leader” and live in poverty and misery while said Dear Leader feasts on gourmet food cooked by world-class chefs and rides Jet Skis with Dennis Rodman.
Annaliese preaches all sorts of social justice nonsense, but she can’t even abide by the shit she spews. And she creates rules that she then proceeds to break. You already saw some of that with her declaration that her Intersectional Feminist Club is not a democracy followed by her violation of the rules she penned. Here are more examples.
Exhibit 1 – Annaliese attempts to normalize her abuse of others
Exhibit 2 – Annaliese is hungry
Annaliese tells the group in no uncertain terms that people cannot just share whatever they want, even though that’s basically what she has told the press in every interview.
But… this pronouncement does not apply to her.
Nope, it doesn’t.
It’s important! You need to know that she is hungry.
Lucas is her boyfriend, by the way. Poor SOB.
I have no doubt that much attention was showered upon her. After all, the penalty for not doing so would be excommunication.
With a name like Penisgate, it’s gotta be good, right? This is the one that really sends home that Annaliese Nielsen is not sincere about being a feminist.
This sordid episode took place in an affiliate group called Fur Baby Friendship Club. A member posted an image of a cat with a surprise in the bottom left: his sorry little excuse for a penis. This group had parents and children who could see it, and he effectively exposed his sex organ to them.
While you might expect that, especially in a group associated with feminism, an unsolicited dick pick would result in immediate banning and instant public shaming, Bryan is a friend of Annaliese Nielsen and thus got a free pass. The photo was removed, but Bryan was not.
Here is the original post. Sort of NSFW but his pee-pee is so small that your employer probably won’t notice. We have no idea what he ended up doing to that cat. Someone call ASPCA.
In this next shot, we see the disgusting Jenna Nicole Smith, aka Jenna Valentine, aka Jennifer somethingorother adding Bryan back after some other mod removed him.
Annaliese reveals that Bryan is a friend and thus gets a free pass. Inside joke? The joke is on whomever his dick is inside of.
A brainwashed member kowtows to Annaliese, defending the fact that a friend of the group gets a free pass for showing his dick. Annaliese openly admits the group has problems that go “overlooked”.
Annaliese Nielsen says that unsolicited dick pics are acceptable because they are from a friend and not a stranger. Do you think she would say this about rape? Publicly? Since when do militant feminists tolerate JPG flashing?
Annaliese whines that she doesn’t get enough “respect”. This is basically more gaslighting. Or maybe she just thinks she’s Rodney Dangerfield, except he still looks better than she does without makeup… in 2016.
If your stomach can handle it, there’s more, so let’s move on.
Exploiting her faithful for money
One hallmark of a successful cult is that it squeezes its members for money. Annaliese is quite adept at this.
Exhibit 1 – Annaliese gets GRLCVLT to pay for her plane ticket
Annaliese runs a number of companies and has a rich dad. Why would she need people to pay for her airfare? And $3585? That’s the low end of business class. Wonder if she reported this income to the IRS.
Exhibit 2 – The swag that not everybody received
We have gotten reports that at least one member never got the Girls’ Night Out merchandise she paid for, because she was excommunicated from the group first. Again, I wonder if this was reported to the IRS.
Backstabbing, betrayal, and gossip
Girls’ Night In aka GRLCVLT has taken every opportunity to portray themselves as a women’s interest group, the cutting edge of feminism; we even have some shots we’ll share later of “male tears”. Funny, then, that there is so much abuse of women in the group. The saga of someone we will call Q, and EC's story is one ugly example we have in our hands.
At one point, a member named Q made some sort of disparaging comments about another member, EC. We don’t yet have screenshots of the original comment, but there are references to the comments here. Q said that EC wasn’t “woke” (a creepy Orwellian term meaning “sufficiently brainwashed”) and also said that fellow member, (call her “Mexican Jumping Bean”), was ashamed of her Hispanic heritage. Eventually, Q and another member are excommunicated from the cult with what is clearly some acrimony.
These shots are all from the “Cultministration”, their top-secret admin group that was not even known to most members of GRLCVLT. They aren’t subtle about the whole cult thing, are they?
They use code names. We know who those code names stand for, but as part of our redaction gesture, we won't say who is who.
The source who provided us this information was sketchy with the details, but another source helped us fill in some of the gaps.
- We don’t know who cleaned Q’s place
- “Big problem” apparently refers to Q not subscribing to the group’s dogma on the issue of Dr. Luke and Kesha.
- Mexican Jumping Bean suggests that Annaliese is aware of the soap opera drama going on.
- We’re not sure what is brewing in whose head.
- The Chancla is referring to Q’s green hair.
These next screenshots takes place later, after the excommunication.
It’s funny how Captain Kangaroo goes on about how people are vicious when they think they won’t get caught. I wonder how she’ll feel when she finds out she’s been caught.
The Chancla mentions that Q was “5150ed” meaning involuntary psychiatric hold, i.e. committed.
Meanwhile, back at Cultministration…
Even though Annaliese had excommunicated Q for trash talking EC, Dear Leader Kim Jong Annaliese did not feel she should be held to the same standards.
For clarification: GNI had a “sleepover” a few years ago and an underwear company known as “Meundies” sponsored it.
We’re not sure exactly who peed in a cup here.
Apparently, Annaliese would make a big show in the group of how much she loved EC, but behind closed doors, the truth came out.
What excommunication means
As poorly as they treat their current members, just as with any other cult, GRLCVLT make sure to inflict suffering upon their ex-members.
Here is one post from Annaliese not-so-subtly threatening someone named Sydney.
Articles about “Girls’ Night In” prior to Hulagate openly admitted that the group required that
- Members post actively
- Members never share what transpires in the group on pain of excommunication and “public shaming”
The purpose of this, of course, is to encourage members to share extremely personal information (such as enjoying sex with pus) so that Annaliese can use it as blackmail later on. She is, as usual, exempt from her own rules.
Does Annaliese's cult reach deep enough into Hollywood that a threat of “blacklisting” carries any weight? One member seemed to think so. They have since renounced Annaliese and recanted their threat. But if there is any evidence that Annaliese wields this kind of influence, please let us know.
The Master Post of Unfriendship
Boy does this ever sound Orwellian. In the wake of Hulagate, the group created a blacklist of those suspected of leaking the video. In order to remain part of the group, you had to unfriend every one of these girls, and leave every group. We have blocked out the names, but one of the people on this list was accused of rape and arson, as depicted in our other article.
Here we see Jenna Nicole Smith, aka Jenna Valentine, aka Jennifer, forcing those people who are still friends with one of the banned women (she was mocked by Annaliese Nielsen when her cousin committed suicide) to leave GRLCVLT.
And finally, here is The Chancla stating that those who are members of a group formed by an ex-member will be banned from GRLCVLT. The group had nothing to do with GRLCVLT and most of its members had never even heard of it. Goes to show you the paranoid nature of this cult.
There you have it
Now, perhaps you understand the truth about what GRLCVLT is. They are not a feminist organization, no matter how much they scream it from the rooftops. They are a cult of personality centered around Annaliese Nielsen designed to benefit her financially and otherwise. Their “social justice” principles are so ridiculous because they were never intended to be serious, just like Xenu. Annaliese uses them to brainwash naive girls. The rumors persist about it being used as a recruiting grounds for GodsGirls, and GodsGirls being used as a recruiting grounds for prostitutes, and we will continue to investigate those rumors.
Annaliese Nielsen is a dangerous person. She has attempted to frame a man for rape and arson. She has attempted to destroy businesses and livelihoods. She manipulates and intimidates those she knows. She keeps a cadre of equally evil women at her side.
Stay tuned for our next leak, which will be a detailed exploration of Annaliese Nielsen’s mental state.
