Chandler reportedly admitted to sexually assaulting his 80-year-old mother “every third day” since June 27 while being “direct and up front with her for the most part” :
In a nearly 10 minute audio recording posted to Kiwi Farms, the person identified as Chandler appears to admit to having repeated sexual intercourse with their mother since June of this year, and at one point explains that “We’ve been doing it every third night and the first night was on June 27”. The person identified as Chandler explained that they approached Barbara Chandler “with care and caution” in “a timed approach” that “just branched out slow and steady” until they let Barbara “make the first move, and she wanted to do it.”
The person identified as Chandler also appeared to share share graphic details of the intercourse. “She’s got a really sensitive g-spot, because apparently I don’t believe her… any of her past boyfriends, ex husbands, they haven’t really reached, hit her g-spot really”, said the person identified as Chandler at one point, ostensibly speaking about their own father. “They were more focused on themselves, really, as opposed to focusing on her, which that’s my focus”. At this point in the call, the other person on the phone call repeatedly noted that they were discussing sexual actions with the 80-year-old mother, and the person identified as Chandler did not dispute this.
Describing how the physically intimate relationship began, the person identified as Chandler said, “I was direct and up front with her for the most part” but added that 80-year-old Barbara Chandler, who is widely believed to be suffering from some form of dementia “was partially confused at one point, but then she came around obviously”.
The police who arrested Chandler have been accused of transphobia by activists on social media, and corporate journalists have written articles stressing that Chandler’s arrest should not be used as a basis to express bigotry against gender-nonconforming individuals.
