PVV – stalking and harassment are NOT OK!!

Dear Loves,

These are topics that I have not addressed much on PVV, but they are extremely important – harassment and stalking.

Harassment is:

The act of systematic and/or continued unwanted and annoying actions of one party or a group, including threats and demands. The purposes may vary, including racial prejudice, personal malice, an attempt to force someone to quit a job or grant sexual favors, apply illegal pressure to collect a bill, or merely gain sadistic pleasure from making someone fearful or anxious… (here)

Stalking is:

Criminal activity consisting of the repeated following and harassing of another person.

Stalking is a distinctive form of criminal activity composed of a series of actions that taken individually might constitute legal behavior. For example, sending flowers, writing love notes, and waiting for someone outside her place of work are actions that, on their own, are not criminal. When these actions are coupled with an intent to instill fear or injury, however, they may constitute a pattern of behavior that is illegal… (here)

There’s certainly more to both harassment and stalking than is described by these definitions, but the main point is this: neither stalking nor harassment are ok!!

Now, most people seem to know this and/or have a handle on their impulses to shower someone with unbridled, perhaps unwanted, passion… but sometimes people just don’t get it. And when that happens, it sometimes seems like the targets of these unwanted advances have very little recourse. This is the case with private “ordinary” citizens, but it seems to be even more complex and intense when public personalities are involved.

Much more can be said about stalking and harassment and the almost endless dimensions that circulate around them; but for right now, I am going to highlight one extremely troubling and ongoing case that targets Stormy Daniels.

Stormy Daniels is a renowned and respected adult performer and director. She’s a mother and a writer and a(n evil) super genius, among many other things. Currently, she’s also the target of some pretty serious, and seriously disturbing, stalking and harassment. The alleged perpetrator of this situation is a man named Frederic Perrin.

Allegedly, Frederic has been stalking and harassing Stormy for some time. He has shown up at her public appearances and has gathered a wealth of private information about her. He has created a dummy Facebook profile and is crafting complex fake conversations and extremely troubling false relationships between himself and Stormy. Consider the following images…

I will leave it to you to check out Stormy’s twitter (@StormyDaniels) if you’re interested in learning more about the specifics of this situation, but suffice it to say that it’s very intense and frightening. I am drawing attention to this issue because Stormy recently reached (again) for support from her fans and the general public (see first image above).

Please take a moment to use your Facebook account for good!! This is the FAKE Stormy page allegedly created by Frederic Perrin. It contains a lot of very disturbing stolen information and is not sanctioned by her, so please DO NOT “like” this page. Instead, please help Stormy out by reporting this page to Facebook.

And if you’d like, you can add Stormy as a friend on Facebook here. This is her REAL PROFILE and is updated and maintained by her assistant.

Stalking and harassment are not ok!! It is very troubling to me that the laws surrounding both these issues seem to favor the person initiating all the unwanted and frightening attention. Countless women (and men) have been targeted by others in this manner, including myself. Twice. And unfortunately, it seems like people who are high profile sex workers (read: porn stars) have even fewer rights to protect themselves in these situations.

Please help Stormy combat this stalker; please help anyone you know who may be dealing with a similar set of circumstances; and if you are being targeting in this manner – stand up, reach out, and fight back!! Disturbed mother fuckers have NO RIGHT to make you or anyone else feel unsafe.
