The Stepford Ambots

I remember seeing the original Stepford Wives movie on TV back in the days when the networks did more made for TV movies. I also have the DVD of the screen version starring Matthew Broderick and Nicole Kidman.
What was going on in Stepford is also going on in Amway. In the movie the wives are controlled by their husbands who are always attending men’s club meetings and are ultimately controlled by one or two men who are the leaders. Depending on which movie you’re familiar with the women are either murdered and robots take their place or they have a computer disk inserted in their brain that controls them.
Either way the women - or keeping up with the times in the newer version which included a gay couple and zapped one man - become mindless submissive robots controlled by their husbands. Oh and the wives fawn all over their men with unnatural over the top devotion and dedication. Very much like zombies.
Very much like ambots.
This is what I saw in the Amway cult.
Men’s club meetings. The Amway meetings were male oriented always led by a male cult leader. Some wives attended Amway meetings with their husbands. Many men were single and coming stag to the Amway meetings. Many married men came stag too after their wives became fed up with the mind control bullshit and losing money. Some meetings were just men only no women allowed. Who remembers the clubhouses we had when we were kids and the boys usually had a “girls keep out” sign hanging outside. Like that. These men only Amway meetings are where the cult leaders try to cause trouble in their downline’s marriages and destroy their relationships.
To become a Stepford Amford ambot one must do whatever the scum sucking upline demands. They have to say the things the upline wants to hear, wear the clothes the upline wants you to wear, eat the snacks the upline wants you to eat, buy the things upline wants you to buy, drop whatever you’re doing and rush to the upline’s side if they beckon, etc, etc.
I have to stop. Sometimes I find it really sickening to relive these memories but I know by writing them down and sharing the anguish I went through that I can help others.
Wives had to display this over the top zombie like devotion to their husbands. Just watch those Ken and Barbies stomping across the stage at Amway functions. Barbie might have a few words to say but mostly she stands there gazing adoringly at Warrior Ken.
I don’t know about the rest of you guys but my husband gets really nervous if I’m staring him down!
That’s what life is like once you sign up with Amway. Welcome to Stepford Amford! Leave your brain at the door. You are now an ambot.


  1. I got prospected at the mall last Friday, and attended a night meeting the following day (Saturday). I completely agree, as I have seen the remake of “The Stepford Wives” with Matthew Broderick and Nicole Kidman. This image just flocked my mind the remainder of the evening and I couldn’t help but notice these people live in a world of their own universe. I am however curious as to the origin of their depression! What is it that makes them so unhappy about “the real world”. Why is it so horrible to live out here where everyone else is normal? I have to admit I’m fascinated with their unique characteristics, as they sort of also remind me of “Body Snatchers”, which film and its remakes have terrorized me for decades to come. This brought back memories of my childhood Halloween TV-marathons, where movie after movie, an alien hiding underneath a human made my skin crawl!

    These people need a psychiatric evaluation, or some type of Global government intervention, this more likely resembles a disease that’s getting out of hand. I think someone needs to go in there with a flame-thrower and do something to liberate them from this alien cyst that has gotten a hold of them. I was incredibly freaked out by this, I mean, has anyone tried to quarantine these people, and set up camps for them, to probably dis-intoxicate or disinfect whatever is causing their devolution process, I mean they’ve traveled about a hundred years to the past! Isn’t anyone else worried about this?

  2. I did not understand these things minutely, but true, women were governed by untold rules.


Comments are moderated but we publish just about everything. Even brainwashed ambots who show up here to accuse us of not trying hard enough and that we are lazy, quitters, negative, unchristian dreamstealers. Like we haven’t heard that Amspeak abuse from the assholes in our upline!

If your comment didn’t get published it could be one of these reasons:
1. Is it the weekend? We don’t moderate comments on weekends. Maybe not every day during the week either. Patience.
2. Racist/bigoted comments? Take that shit somewhere else.
3. Naming names? Public figures like politicians and actors and people known in Amway are probably OK – the owners, Diamonds with CDs or who speak at functions, people in Amway’s publicity department who write press releases and blogs. Its humiliating for people to admit their association with Amway so respect their privacy if they’re not out there telling everyone about the love of their life.
4. Gossip that serves no purpose. There are other places to dish about what Diamonds are having affairs or guessing why they’re getting divorced. If you absolutely must share that here – don’t name names. I get too many nosy ambots searching for this. Lets not help them find this shit.
5. Posting something creepy anonymously and we can’t track your location because you’re on a mobile device or using hide my ass or some other proxy. I attracted an obsessed fan and one of my blog administrators attracted a cyberstalker. Lets keep it safe for everyone. Anonymous is OK. Creepy anonymous and hiding – go fuck yourselves!
6. Posting something that serves no purpose other than to cause fighting.
7. Posting bullshit Amway propaganda. We might publish that comment to make fun of you. Otherwise take your agenda somewhere else. Not interested.
8. Notice how this blog is written in English? That's our language so keep your comments in English too. If you leave a comment written in another language then we either have to use Google translate to put it into English so everyone can understand what you wrote or we can hit the Delete button. Guess which one is easier for us to do?
9. We suspect you're a troublemaking Amway asshole.
10. Your comment got caught in the spam filter. Gets checked occasionally. We’ll get to you eventually and approve it as long as it really isn’t spam.
