Stage One- Pre Birth:
This occurs before you know Insane Clown Posse exists. You know you're different. You don't conform with society. You see the world differently than most and aren't sure where your view fits in.

Stage Two- The Awakening:
You are introduced to I.C.P. A friend may introduce you, or you may hear a song on the radio. Maybe you see someone sporting a shirt and think "I wonder what that's all about." It can happen in many ways, but from here on out nothing is the same. You start to discover the magic that is the Dark Carnival. You being to find that place where your view belongs.

Stage Three- Clown Boy:
This is the stage that most people resist. Nobody likes to think of themselves as a clown boy (or fanboy, or hound dog...take your pick), but we've ALL been there. This is where I.C.P. and Psychopathic are the WORLD to you. You want all the merchandise, memorize all the songs, and follow blindly the lead of Joe, Joey and the Psychopathic machine. The most common symptoms of being in this stage are: calling ANYONE a Juggahoe, dissing anyone for not having as much merchandise as you or not knowing every lyric to every song on every Psychopathic album, believing everything that J says, and generally defending Psychopathic in everything they do, even when they are wrong. Some are more obvious in this stage than others, but believe me, you too will be / are / once were a clown boy. Sorry. That's just the way it is.

Stage Four- Disillusionment:
This is where you start seeing cracks in the perfect structure that is the Juggalo World. It happens different for all of us. Something will plant a seed of doubt in the world you've emersed yourself in. Maybe you meet Shaggy and he's rude to you. Perhaps you start to see that Psychopathic Records is no different then other record company, and that their main goal is to make money. You start doubting the "Family" and all the hype that come with it. This is the hardest stage to get through. All the faith you put into Psychopathic starts to crumble, and you begin to feel lost once again.

Stage Five- Realization:
The last stage. This is when you finally figure it out. Being a Juggalo isn't about the merchandise or knowing what kind of pudding Shaggy likes. It's not about hating / liking things just cause I.C.P. says so. It's about being YOU. This is about being your own person and not letting anyone tell you how you should be, think, act, or dress. It's about a community of people that have had similar experiences and feelings as you. We have a connection together....even if we don't always get along or agree.

Okay...Terms change, society adapts, and marketing works. I'm very impressed with I.C.P. Why, you may ask? Name another band you've heard of that can turn their fans in brain-washed psychotics chomping at the bit to purchase the next chapter of their "holy album." Hmmm, sounds better than Jesus to me! Sure. Considering that Jesus overturned the tables of those who turned Jehovah's temple into a market for mere profit. Considering Jesus said that people would be led astray by every false wind of doctrine. Considering that this post will probably be rebutted by every single follower of this cult that visits this site. Tell me, are you more concerned with having the freedom to be what you want to be or being free from who you've become? Sin has a way of hardening us and turning us away from true relationship and fellowship. It doesn't matter what everyone thinks of you. You are correct. But it does matter what the Master Designer thinks of you. I wonder if he endorses Insane Clown Posse. Do you really see Him as insane?
Very concerned for you all,
YA mam

I remember when ABK and Esham left and I was really doubting alot of things because of this. It took a while to get over the fact that Psychopathic was losing folks and then one day I got over that 4th stage and jumped back in tha game. Now look at whats happening. ABK is back with Psychopathic, and now Drive-by has been rereleased along with Check yo shit in. VERY EXCITED to be a juggalo. And I am loyal to my shit.
Peace ya'll

I myself went through the stages quickly for an unknown reason, I remember the days of stage two, oh boy. Stage 5 juggalo here, but the thing is no matter what stage you are in, we are all family! And we all grow and learn to be better juggalos, and now I will quote Psychopathic Records. "Don't ever let being a juggalo stop you from being a better juggalo."

MMFWCL take care homies.
