ABOUT WWW.SEXWORKERSANONYMOUS.ORG

ABOUT WWW.SEXWORKERSANONYMOUS.ORG

First, please note the day this website was set up.  It was set up on May 26, 2015 originally.  http://whois.domaintools.com/sexworkersanonymous.org  Further note the person who registered it did so "anonymously" and has not posted their name on the site standing behind the statements there.  Also know the series "8 Minutes" had started airing three weeks before May 26th.  It was taken off the air after the 2nd episode.

Now, go and look at www.hightechmadam.com  Note the date of the first article about the 12 step program which we originally called "Prostitutes Anonymous" in 1987 was dated August of 1987.

Take a walk around online and see if you find anything like this about me, or our program, anywhere else pre-dating May 26, 2015.

Anything.

The only other negative statements you will find about us online as of June 22, 2016 when I wrote this are found on https://www.ratethatrescue.org/wp/organizations/sexworkersanonymous-com/

Notice the domain for this was registered on May 27, 2015
https://whois.name.com/whois/www.ratethatrescue.org  So ONE DAY after this site was set up about me being a "predator", this "ratethatrescue" site was set up with this page commenting about our program at https://www.ratethatrescue.org/wp/organizations/sexworkersanonymous-com/  The wording on this site about our program was lifted off our website at www.sexworkersanonymous.com which has a copyright symbol on it.  Meaning this copying and posting of our content is in itself a copyright infringement.

The last comment posted on this site was dated October of 2015.  So nothing before, and nothing after, has been posted in their vein about our program, or myself personally.

This program has been operating since 1987.  Now do you really think in THIRTY YEARS of operation if I was truly like the person being painted here would not the web BE CHOCK FULL OF SITES LIKE THIS?

Let's take a look at something in comparison.  I have a Paypal account as do a lot of people.  Let's see what people post online about Paypal - Wow a $25 million dollar class action lawsuit.  https://topclassactions.com/lawsuit-settlements/open-lawsuit-settlements/306260-paypal-account-hold-class-action-settlement/

Here's a whole website full of horror stories about Paypal - http://www.paypalwarning.com/

Screw Paypal - http://www.screw-paypal.com/paypal_lawsuits.html

Paypal sucks - http://www.paypalsucks.com/links.shtml

Here's a news article attacking them http://www.forbes.com/sites/ryanmac/2016/05/24/this-silicon-valley-billionaire-has-been-secretly-funding-hulk-hogans-lawsuits-against-gawker/#12060d9d7805

Another news article - http://theurbantwist.com/2016/02/01/paypal-sued-lost/

Meaning Paypal has more than one site up by more than one person over a long period of time set up warning people about Paypal.  There's also more than one news article attacking Paypal online also.

Now, Paypal is a lot less than 30 years old.  But yet they have way more sites, and media articles up attacking them.  I don't see one single media article attacking me up anywhere.  Not one reporter has come in and "exposed the maniac" those two sites are claiming that I am.

In fact, www.ratethatrescue.org has a positive statement up about me.  I know because one of our members had called me saying she had been trying to post something positive and was being blocked.  So another one of our members said to let her try and post something from an "anonymizer" so they wouldn't know who she was and see if they'd post her positive comment.  She was able to post it only to have it immediately attacked by the claim I MYSELF had posted this comment.  Yet you'll note no screen shot of an IP address or email of the sender to prove I myself made that comment.  So anyone posting something positive was either banned from doing so or accused of just being me in disguise.

Yeah that's fair.

Let's see what does the media say about me?    Better yet let's approach the accusation this program is a program "of one person only" as the site claims.  Here's an article about our Chicago group http://www.nbcchicago.com/investigations/Jail-Inmates-Start-Prostitutes-Anonymous-Group-277845151.html run by Brenda Myers-Powell.

OUR PROGRAM IS ONLY ONE PERSON - ME
Well that certainly looks like more than one person and I'm not even in the video.

Here's an article about Kathleen Mitchell in Phoenix.  http://www.phoenixnewtimes.com/news/ex-prostitutes-who-proselytize-6431069  Looks like we're more than one person and that person's not me.  I don't even live in Phoenix.

I could go on but I think you get the point.  Notice these articles are about "Prostitutes Anonymous" however.  Yet this site is about "Sex Workers Anonymous".  Is this two different groups?  No.   Go back to www.hightechmadam.com and you'll see we start out as "Prostitutes Anonymous" and in later years our program is called "Sex Workers Anonymous".  That's because our program changed names in 1995.  However, these groups featuring Brenda and Kathleen were founded PRIOR to 1995 so they've been calling themselves "Prostitutes Anonymous" since they started.  Kathleen's group was founded in 1991.  Now after calling yourselves a name for years - you're going to be used to it.  So our older groups go by the older name.  No point in changing them but they're still meetings held within our overall program.

Now is it possible these women THOUGHT no other group existed because maybe they were googling under our new name instead or our original name?  What comes up under Sex Workers Anonymous?

Here's a meeting listed of us in a book about "Anonymous Society"  https://books.google.com/books?id=9o9JDAAAQBAJ&pg=PA32&lpg=PA32&dq=sex+workers+anonymous+meetings&source=bl&ots=wMJqkNjujm&sig=ImbyJCO3eOf7pAg7To3RlDuOgDg&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwib-q6VjL3NAhVU1GMKHYfoAM84KBDoAQgwMAM#v=onepage&q=sex%20workers%20anonymous%20meetings&f=false

How about a meeting in Cleveland, Ohio?  http://www.clevescene.com/cleveland/prostitute-anonymous-tales-of-the-street-from-a-former-cleveland-madame/Content?oid=4330785

Allentown, PA http://www.mediafire.com/download/p9ktpkc0ee19vur/allentownarticle.pdf

Los Angeles?  http://articles.latimes.com/1993-10-29/news/va-50887_1_alcoholics-anonymous

These are articles written by the press - not an individual person.  They're speaking about our meetings within other cities and states.  Places I have never been.

So this is really just a "one woman program of someone who is delusional enough to think she's running a real program?"

What about the Las Vegas group I've been running since 1996 in Nevada?  John Quinones from ABC's "What Would You Do?" flew out to Las Vegas and took me to lunch.  Then he came to watch how we run the group, and spoke to other members of the program.  Here's what he wrote in his 2009 book "Heroes Among Us?"









QUALITY OF OUR PROGRAM
As to the quality of our program, a 10 year study was done by professor Sharon Oselin in her report published "Leaving Prostitution".  I've scanned what the women she interviewed about us had to say about our program in their words published by a professor I didn't even know when this was going on.



MAILBOX ADDRESS
Okay I "have a UPS box for an address".  Note they said in their own words they "asked someone to drive by the address to see what it was".  Now I assure you running a program like ours, people are going to be curious and drive by.  I had a family.  I was raising a child for 18 years.  Now why would I advertise my home address?  ESPECIALLY when angry hookers online are sending people over to check out where I live?  I ask you what would have happened possibly if it had been my home?   Name me one "legit business" whose founder, owner, or director, lists their home address online other than the President living in the White House?



TRADEMARK
I have no "trademark".  I never said I had a trademark and I don't need one.  Yes to order one costs $159.  However, I give away our literature.  I don't pass a basket at our meetings.  I don't sell t-shirts.  I don't hold fund raisers.  I give away our step working guides.   So first of all, why would I invest $159 to protect a trademark for products that I give away?

Second, I never said I had a trademark.  I do have what's called a "common law trademark".  What that means is if I've been operating a commercial venture for years under a certain name, then I am protected by what's called "common law trademark" which IS enforceable as to intellectual property, and materials we've created.    You can read more about what "common law trademarks" are here http://www.bitlaw.com/trademark/common.html

NOT A NONPROFIT
Sex Workers Anonymous is not a "registered nonprofit".  http://501c3lookup.org/omni-scii_sex_workers_anonymous/  Strange.  Sure looks like we are.  

DON'T HAVE ANY COPYRIGHTS


SEEKING PUBLICITY
As for my "seeking publicity for myself with 8 Minutes", I first of all didn't reach out to this person calling herself Kamylla.  She contacted me.  I then did not contact one single person in the media at any time.  All media initiated their contact with me.  How did they know to contact me in the first place?  Kamylla.  During my phone conversation with Kamylla she gave me consent to publish a tape recording of her call online, she also gave me permission to talk about her to anyone who asked.  The reporters called me because she told them about me and gave them my number.  So who is "seeking notoriety here?"

I was doing all of this to somehow put money in my pocket is their accusation.  Okay show me a fund raiser  I put on for Kamylla.  Show me a fund raiser I put on to gather press and social media for myself?  However, the Cupcake Girls did.  I don't see anyone talking about how they used Kamylla to enhance their press and social media despite the fact they gathered $10,000 to give to her.  For what exactly?  Legal fees.  Only there were no legal fees.  There was no eviction filed with the Houston courthouse under her legal name.  Why would there be?  A landlord can't charge rent on a flooded legally uninhabitable unit as she further claimed she needed money for.  For rent?  Landlord again can't charge for a flooded unit.  The two attorney's who were representing her - one was paid for by the Cupcake Girls and the other was donated by the producers of the show.  

ASKING FOR A DRIVERS LICENSE
I supposedly "asked for a drivers license" which one "doesn't do to a 12 step member".  Okay Kamylla never asked to be a member.  She never asked me for help with her recovery.  She never attended any meetings.  In fact, she didn't ask me one darn thing about our program which does offer anonymity.  Meaning I've never asked someone calling for help, or a member of SWA, for a copy of their identification.  

However, I double checked everything about her story after she supposedly was attacking me online shortly after the phone call.  Only when I asked her why she was attacking me right after I had agreed to help her - she told me it wasn't her.  She said she had signed a confidentiality agreement and a model release for other people to post as her online.  She said she had no computer and no internet connection.  When I sent her screen shots of the nasty things she was saying about me online supposedly she said it wasn't her.  She was then told to "shut up" or she'd not get the money from her fund raiser.

This "other Kamylla" She claimed to have been filmed on "8 Minutes" yet her face never aired.  No reporter could produce a copy of the contract which she'd have with Relativity Media as having done the show.  SHE couldn't produce a copy of the contract or any documentation to prove she was ever on the show as claimed.  The HR Dept. of Relativity Media refused to confirm she was ever filmed for the show.  

Kamylla claims she was in Kathryn Griffin-Townsend's program for prostitutes in Houston during 2015.  Only Kathryn wasn't running that program in 2015.  The Houston jail said she was not running meetings for prostitutes in 2015.  Said she hadn't in a year.  The voice on this tape of "Kamylla" and Maxine is NOT the voice of the woman who called me saying she was "Kamylla".  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7uay1XfSzwU


The voice on this tape however is the same voice of a woman who has called me repeatedly posing as someone in need of help to try and scout out information on our program and supporters from me.  She's asked who our attorney is that helps our members, where our meetings are, can she get a phone number of other members, how many members do we have, etc.  

So when someone is posing as someone else, spreading lies about me online, and there's no backing to her story she was even on the show, nor was she arrested, being evicted, nor even attended Kathryn's diversion program, and in fact I found further down the line hidden undercover tapes and videos made of Kathryn inside of events she's held which was clearly hidden, then posted without Kathryn's consent, and also posing as someone wanting to come to one of our meetings, know more about our program, and calling over and over again using a different name each time - then yes I'm going to say I won't believe she is who she says she is until I see an ID card.  BIG DIFF from "asking members to show an ID card to get help".

There's also one other BIG FLAW with their comparing us to AA.  Alcoholism and drinking IS NOT ILLEGAL.  Prostitution is.  So NO we are NOT going to "run our program like AA".  Sex work is not a disease.  So again why would it be the same as AA when it's not a disease and the recovery process for them is different than for us.  Example - they get sober by being sober.  We however quit prostitution and then how do we pay the rent? Meaning usually we have to plan our retirement and can't just "cold turkey" it.  So the issue isn't the same, the recovery isn't the same so yes to our program IS going to be DIFFERENT.  We don't pass the basket and give away our book so clearly yes we are DIFFERENT than AA.  

STALKING AND HARASSING THESE PEOPLE
Okay, who set up a website attacking who first?  Me?  Or them?  Now wouldn't anyone have a response to such a thing?  If you had a legal obligation to a group you run to serve people with "cease and desist" orders, or notices they were violating your common law trademarks and copyrights along with such false statements as you not being a nonprofit - would you not respond even though that response was "unsolicited"?

When someone violates the law, then you have to serve them with a legal notice, yes you are contacting them "unsolicited" and yes you are "threatening them".  Now if these people want to do things without giving legal notice that's their right.  But the law requires before serving anyone with a legal complaint you have to give them a five day notice under which they have those five days to breach the problem.   Then if they don't respond - then you can file a legal action but you have to serve the five day immediately to protect their legal rights.  Legal notice and "threats" are two different things.  If they didn't want to hear from me WHY POST WEBSITES then about me?  

THE PURPOSE?
Shawnee Hunt has had a problem with me ever since 2007 when I refuse to get up at our press conference calling to "abolish prostitution".  When I also refused to say "all prostitution is rape" and there's "no such thing as the sex industry".  How can I say there is no sex industry when there is?  I mean how much money is Vivid making off the Kim Kardashian sex tape?  How much money is Spearmint Rhino making nationwide?  Playboy?  Hustler?  Adam & Eve?  

The Hunt Alternative Foundation awarded grant money to the Denver Arts Council who then in turn donated money to the "Red Hand Studio" owned by Domina Elle.  Domina Elle is the woman who set up both sites involved here after the grant money was received.   Every person who receives grant money from Hunt whether it's through "End Demand" or "Hunt Alternatives" is told they can't have anything to do with our program.

Why?  Because we won't call our program "trafficking victims anonymous" and stand behind her views as stated above.

I also know Relativity Media, the producers of "8 Minutes" were pretty angry when my "notice of intent to sue for defamation" resulted in the show being cancelled by the next morning after only 2 episodes.  Prompting their investors to call them "con artists" and file a lawsuit against them for a lot of money.  In fact, Relativity Media filed for bankruptcy just a short time after the show canceled.  So yeah, there are some pissed off people at us back in May of 2015.  You can see the results.

But I ask you - DO YOU SEE ONE COMPLAINT ON HERE ANYWHERE FROM A MEMBER?

Here's a member in their voice:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_TD_X3uOiA



SO ARE OUR MEMBERS UNHAPPY WITH US?

Compare this to the complaints against Obama or Paypal and I think we're doing pretty good here.  If you have any questions about the rest of their accusations - I'd be happy to address them with you.  Just give us a call at (702) 488-1127.  

We had to change our number when the women connected with those attack hate sites kept text bombing and otherwise jamming up our hotline phone so legit calls couldn't get through.

Oh and by the way, we just started another meeting in Wichita, Kansas this week.  I am not at every meeting everywhere in the world.  I also never said I was "perfect".  I'm no different than any other member of any other 12 step program meaning you shouldn't not pursue your own recovery because of what someone said about another person.  Make up your own mind.  Honestly, if I was what these sites claim - I'm sure the media would have reported on it by now, a lawsuit would have been filed, something would be registered long before 2015 and not since.

The women who set up these sites are active sex workers.  Now I ask you - what other type of site than a hateful attack site would be set up by drinking alcoholics about Bill Wilson and AA?

I appreciate the compliment.  I don't see the same about people like Kevin Brown who was the man supposedly rescuing women in "8 Minutes".  I don't see the same about the Cupcake Girls who has yet to produce one single "success story" of getting someone out of the sex industry.  I don't see any such against the Hunt Alternatives Foundation who granted Alameda County $80,000 who has been using that money to bust johns and prostitutes nightly according to their Twitter.  Nor against Joohoon David Lee who worked with Homeland Security and was trafficking women.  How about Chris Butler who was trafficking women using active duty cops to help him?   Or the LAPD cops who were raping women who were prostitutes?  How about the NY cop who was pimping 10 women against their will?  

BUT I WARRANT THIS MUCH HATE?  Again, what else would a drinking alcoholic say about Bill Wilson and AA?

So I do thank them for the compliment.

By the way, our program is the only one which if you are convicted of prostitution you can ask the judge to court order you to our meetings instead of jail - or alternative sentencing.  Even community service.  You don't have to hire a lawyer or go into a religious or drug program to avoid jail.  We can also help you expunge your records when your time is up.   We provide a 24/7 hotline answered by someone in recovery to help with anything you need help with when you're over 18 years old.

NOW WHAT ARE THEY DOING TO HELP SEX WORKERS SO MUCH?

Warn you about me?

I'm not the on setting up hate sites against other people and sending people to their house.

You're smart.  You can figure out what's up here.  There's no "privacy policy" on either site.  They capture your IP information and also attach a cookie to every site that goes to those sites.  What a clever way to obtain mirror traffic information on who is contacting our program.  So if you've gone there and don't want anyone knowing you're calling us for help - just call us or put an "anonymizer" on your browser.
