Let her own words speak for themselves

People can say all sorts of things online. Cowards, con artists and people with nefarious motives use the Internet. Knowing this we should always question what we see and read. What are the motives behind it?

The following are texts sent by Jody Williams. The person who she is communicating with had contacted her through the sexworkersanonymous.COM website because they were looking for information and possibly assistance. Jody (or whomever it is using the name jody Williams) had crossed lines and the person was declining any further involvement with jody and this didn’t sit well with Jody. Jody sent numerous texts threatening the person with details she knew regarding the persons case. Jody comes back around to say she was ‘just making threats to get the person to pay attention’.

You got the persons attention alright.
Now there are MANY people paying attention Jody.

Advocacy doesn't involve threatening people
Advocacy doesn’t involve threatening people

Update: after speaking with the person who the above circumstances are referencing I have permission to say the person who had this experience with Jody Williams is the woman known as Kamylla on Twitter. After her circumstances worsened thanks to her experience with the production of 8 Minutes she unwittingly contacted Jody Williams looking for information. Once Jody realized this woman’s case had a level of notoriety jody saw an opportunity to propel herself and her ‘project’ known as ‘sex workers anonymous’ jody immediately seized upon the situation to exploit it- publishing rants online that exposed sensitive details of her case. Kamylla was begging Jody to not do this. She then stepped away from Jody. Kamylla then came into contact with members of the sex worker rights activist community. When jody saw this she went ballistic.

More to follow.

Jody Williams – Sex Workers Anonymous – is a UPS mailbox

Jody Williams has continued to obsessively and relentlessly attack a long list of people within the sex worker rights community. New threats have been made by Jody on top of the threats she has continually made, in addition she has set about to slander people who are challenging her narrative. Instead of doing things in a rational, level headed manner, Jody’s strategy is to do exactly what we are saying makes her dangerous to vulnerable sex workers or sex trafficking victims who might unwittingly contact her- she resorts to extremely toxic behaviors, attacking people, threats, slandering people, lying about people, harassment, having no concern for boundaries or anonymity let alone CONSENT, or the safety of others. This was the original point and she has gone about proving this point. (We will be linking to another data base shortly and if you have time to waste you can see for yourself how bad her stalking and harassment has been towards a number of people).

It has been discovered that Jody Williams does not appear to have a registered trademark as she has claimed. After researching her alleged non profit further, it was discovered that there is no non profit registered under the name ‘sex workers anonymous’.

We are wondering if there is ANYTHING legitimate about Jody Williams or her apparently pretend ‘rescue/support’ group.

After a barrage of false accusations, threats and constant harassment via email (we wonder if Jody ever sleeps) a person local to the address Jody gives on her site volunteered to go see what they would find at the address given on the sexworkersanonymous.com site. Low and behold (and not to our surprise), the address Jody gives is a UPS mailbox.

It needs to be noted that no one associated with this site has made any threats towards Jody despite any claims she might make. She has in fact been asked over and over and over and OVER to stop contacting people. She ignores this request and if you block her she simply comes back around with a new email address. She operates behind many profiles and email addresses. This in and of itself raises serious red flags. She has made some pretty crazy claims but if further action is to be taken beyond publishing our experiences and opinions here, it will be done according to whatever LEGAL avenues are available. Unlike Jody, we will not engage in threats or obsessive harassment. It has become clearer and clearer that publishing this site was absolutely the right thing to do To protect people. Hopefully cyber stalking laws will catch up with Jody soon.

Requesting Jody to Stop Harassing Me is a New Form of Victimization?

Just when I thought Jody Williams couldn’t get any more obnoxious, she sends me another UNSOLICITED message claiming that I am “violating her copyright and privacy” by posting her UNSOLICITED diatribes to me. Then she claims that by not wanting to hear from her, I am making a victim of her… or trying to ‘scare’ her… how very strange this woman is!

Jody, I am sure that Nevada will pay to get the help you need. Please do get help and leave people alone who do not wish to hear from you. Get a life and leave everyone alone who want nothing to do with your sorry posterior. GO AWAY!

And Yet She Continues With Her Threatening Messages…

This will be short. Apparently she thinks that threatening to post MY responses to her (along with the threatening, harassing, cyberbullying message she sent me) is somehow going to intimidate me.
I will have to post my responses to her and her rants to me later. I actually have a life and cannot afford all the time she seems to have.

It is always such a thrill to start my day with another threatening message from this psychologically challenged individual. She must have the last word with her ‘victims’ – and even though I let her have the last word several dozen messages ago, she continued to send messages.

Why this website about Jody Williams of “Sex Workers Anonymous”?

Many of us who have ever been a sex worker rights activist have encountered Jody Williams; not only those of us who have worked in the sex industry, but those allies who understand the need to decriminalize consenting adult commercial sex so that those who are truly victims of any type of ‘trafficking’ or abuse are able to find resources that can help them.

Jody has cyberstalked many of us through emails, on Facebook, phone text messages etc. She expects that we will not share this information with others, claiming that to do so is ‘violating HER right to privacy.’ She continues to violate ours, bombarding us with threatening and harassing messages, after we repeatedly and in no uncertain terms ask her to stop sending us her unsolicited tirades. She has a serious problem with rejection and seems incapable of stopping herself from sending those messages.

In self defense, some of us decided that posting her rants for others who may also be her victims is the best course of action, rather than continuing to deal with her privately where her lies and threats are not visible to others.

She reads this blog and is upset that we are posting her lies for others to see, yet she refuses to stop emailing us with more of her lies. I have told her that I will continue to post her messages publicly as long as she continues to send me unsolicited emails.

I realize that Jody Williams has a serious mental problem and she undoubtedly needs help. I wish that she would seek out that help and stop harassing people who do not want anything to do with her. If there is anyone who reads this blog who can reach out to her and offer help, please do. But be aware that once you provide her with any contact information for you, she will add you to her list of “harassees” and you may regret any involvement with her. I know that I regret having had lunch with her many years ago. Jody is what is called “toxic” and to have anything to do with her on any level is to find oneself trapped in her web of lies and deceit, not to mention her never ending harassing and threatening messages.

Jody apparently believes that I have some sort of power or control over the actions of others and that I am responsible for whatever they do to try to stop her from annoying them. Gosh, I wish I had that power, but I am a disabled senior citizen now, taking care of my more disabled husband of nearly 40 years and I have no power over anyone. Perhaps Jody is projecting onto me the control she wants to have over anyone who contacts her for help or that she had over those who once worked for her when she was a madam. I am so glad that when I was working I did not encounter her or work for her, or quite possibly I would have turned into an abolitionist myself. I cannot imagine what it must have been like to have her as one’s ‘pimp.’ To be free of her lying, manipulative ways would be such a blessing!

Anyway, I do have so many other more important things to do than to deal with Jody Williams and her lies, threats and attempted manipulation. I do not have the time to continue writing on this blog and so unless she doesn’t stop sending me more of her hateful, cyberstalking messages, I shall get back to the important things in my life, which do not include Jody Williams.

Jody, the ball is in your court. Stop emailing me. Never contact me again. How much clearer do I need to be that I want ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU?

Trademarks, domain names and more lies from Jody Williams

There were a few days where I was so lucky to not hear from our dear twisted Jody- it was wonderful! Unfortunately those moments of life without her harassing emails are few and far between. Today’s message brought more threats and harassment, but, it also encouraged me to find out exactly how much of a liar she is when it comes to this nonsense about her alleged trademark of the name “sex workers anonymous.” Those of us who have been the unfortunate recipients of her nonsense- the text messages, the emails- threatening us with legal action for posting her insipid messages which are sent to us UNSOLICITED (and are in fact NOT protected by any privacy laws since we have asked her repeatedly to stop sending further messages and we are under no obligation to keep her UNSOLICITED threatening and harassing messages ‘private’) know that she doesn’t have any boundaries when it comes to her continued harassment.

Here is the text of the first part of her message “We’ve reached the point where I need the name and contact information for that attorney you keep telling me you have. Or is that another part of the delusion you seem to be living in lately? [Wow! That’s a stunner… I seem to be living in a delusion???? I am not the one who stalks and harasses people and won’t go away when asked to, nor do I have fantasies that I am helping thousands of survivors or any other such nonsense, so, Jody, who is living in a delusion?]

She continues “You violated our trademark by using the name of “Sex Workers Anonymous” without our permission. You violated my right to privacy by posting private emails of mine online without my permission. The reporter who violated ACORN’S privacy had $100,000 in damages awarded ACORN who was supposedly advising a pimp how to traffic women into the USA. You however, a convicted pimp, with a history of stalking others who are trying to help others to leave the sex industry, posted my private emails online claiming that you did so because I “made you afraid to leave your house for fear someone would arrest you” based on a private email talking about a conversation from 30 years ago.” [Funny, I thought I was a convicted panderer, not a pimp, and there is no history of me stalking anyone… on the other hand, there are plenty of people who have been stalked by Jody Williams… just sayin’!]

The curious thing is, she does not have a trademark on the name “sex workers anonymous” nor can she trademark the domain name “sexworkersanonymous’ and I found this information only because she sent this latest diatribe to me after a few days of lovely peace and quiet. A (free) search for trademarked names shows that no, she does NOT have a trademark for the name ‘sex workers anonymous’ – so if I were inclined and had the money, I could get the trademark for that name for $159. But she stole the name “sex worker” (which was coined by our very own Scarlot Harlot years ago), and of course, copycatted the name “anonymous” from alcoholics anonymous. There isn’t an original bone in her body!

No one that I know of is using that name for their organization anyway, and as far as a domain name goes, she cannot trademark it, either. Here is what the law says [Question] “When does an Internet domain name qualify as a trademark?”
[Answer] “A domain name, such as nolo.com, can qualify as a trademark when it is used in connection with a website that offers services to the public. This includes all sites conducting e-commerce and sites such as Yahoo.com that provide Web-related services.
However, only some types of commercial domain names qualify for trademark protection. For instance, while domain names that use common or descriptive terms, such as healthanswers.com or stampfinders.com, may work very well to bring users to a website, they usually do not qualify for much trademark protection. This means that owners of such domain names generally won’t have much luck stopping the use of these words and phrases in other domain names. In other words, by using common terms that are the generic name for the service (for example, “dictionary.com”) or by using words that merely describe the service or some aspect of it (for example, “returnbuy.com”), the owner of the name will have less trademark rights against the users of similar domain names than she would if her domain name was distinctive.”

Yes, dear Jody, you are a liar. You think that you can intimidate people with your lies. Sorry dear, but we are on to you. Please do have your lawyer call me. I’d be delighted to share all your harassing emails and threatening comments with him or her. Then you need to look up the difference between “pimping” (which YOU WERE doing, not me) and “pandering.” Someone doesn’t know the laws, and that isn’t me!

Should you get the name “Sex Workers Anonymous” trademarked, you still cannot get the domain name trademarked. Anyway, I am not the one who purchased the domain name for this site, and it is unlikely that you will be able to find out who did. In any case, there is nothing you can do about it. If you want us to stop posting your UNSOLICITED harassing and threatening messages, then stop sending them. That’s all I ask of you- just go away and leave me and the rest of us alone. I will not allow you to continue to threaten me privately, so every single message you send to me will be posted here. That is not a threat- it is a promise. And when I get the time and energy, I will upload all her messages and my responses to her, which show the pattern of cyberstalking and harassment.

No trademark for Jody

BEWARE: SexWorkersAnonymous.com- the flawed 12 step approach

The twelve steps is a flawed approach to sex workers.

BEWARE of ANYONE who takes this approach.

Why? because the person who runs sexworkersanonymous.com violates several of the 12 traditions that form the structure of any 12 step group.

The word ‘anonymous’ traditionally means in 12 step structure that showing your ID or any form of ‘proof’ to access ‘help’ isn’t required. If any 12 step, or person associated with a 12 step group demands any sort of documentation, BEWARE! This type of request in NOT apart of any legitimate 12 step program.

Likewise, if any person associated with sexworkersanonymous.com is involved with law enforcement in any sort of way, that too would be a violation of the 12 tradition of the 12 step program. People who are arrested for prostitution are subject to having their names and faces posted in public even though they haven’t been convicted of anything, therefore anyone who so positions themselves as being associated with an anonymous program but discloses their first and last name in public in any capacity, violates both the spirit and the letter of anonymity, and YOU SHOULD BE VERY WAREY OF ANY OFFERS OF HELP FROM SUCH A PERSON!

Sexworkersanonymous.com is only made up of one person so the idea that there is a ‘group’ of people who will offer a range of suggestions as is traditional to 12 step programs is not a reality. This one person model isn’t consistent with the 12 step program’s practice of ‘the spirit of rotation’ whereby ‘elected service committees are responsible directly to those they serve’.

The person running sexworkersanonymous.com has threatened those who’ve come to her for help with violating their confidentiality as a means to extort a relationship.

She has on several occasions threatened those who have come to her for help with public exposure by publishing audio recordings of conversations. This recording and then exposure violates the spirit and letter of anonymity as proposed in 12 step groups. Anyone who reaches out for help from sexworkersanonymous will regret being forced into having their situation invaded by this apparently mentally unstable person.

DO NOT PROVIDE ANY PERSONAL CONTACT INFORMATION TO THIS PERSON!

Another violation of anonymity by sex workers anonymous is when they contact you via email and social media without your permission.

This type of stalking is NOT PART OF ANY 12 STEP PROGRAM!

Imagine spending 7 years of your life in legal hell…

for having done a ‘favor’ for a ‘friend’  and then having someone else make false claims that, if true, could have sent you to prison for the rest of your life… does anyone really believe that everyone is as illogical as Jody Williams is?

If someone had been arrested and charged with one count of pandering (in California, even one count can send you to prison for 3 to six years on the first offense, and ‘pandering’ is merely the ‘crime’ of ‘encouraging a person to commit an act of prostitution’), and someone had already spent 50 days in solitary confinement being ‘studied’ to see if they were dangerous (the study said they weren’t), spent thousands of dollars in legal fees and was facing being resentenced to three to six years in prison because, according to the LA prosecutor, Ira Reiner, the ‘crime’ committed by THIS someone was ‘worse than rape or robbery’ because THIS someone was “commercially exploiting her law enforcement past to draw on scandalous escapades… that undermine respect for the law” and therefore THIS someone had to be sent to prison for the mandatory minimum of at least three years… surely that person would NOT violate that law AGAIN, particularly NOT for someone she did not know (and wouldn’t do even if she did know her), risking her freedom just so that this MADAM JODY could make MONEY- when this SOMEONE couldn’t even see her own clients out of fear of being arrested AGAIN or having this SOMEONE’s clients be arrested…

Yet that is what Jody was stating in her latest rant to me after I have repeatedly requested that she stop contacting me. Apparently she believes that people who know me will find this outright lie to contain merit. Now, because I told her that I keep copies of her emails and screen shots of her lies, she knew that one of her original messages showed that she claimed she couldn’t contact me after our luncheon because she was being followed by the cops- because of me. So, she is NOW claiming that our conversations were prior to our luncheon, BEFORE I even met her, and that at this luncheon where we had JUST MET, I was ‘encouraging her’ to see MY clients, that they were ‘safe’  etc. and that SHE had been warning me that if I didn’t shut up about bad cops, I would be going back to prison.  The GALL of this woman is astounding.

And here are some of her choice lies from TODAY:

“I only asked you for support in having to quit during the lunch we had and you refused. You insisted you knew people that could hook me up with clients that I wouldn’t get busted for seeing because they were all regulars. I told you I was being followed and my phone as being tapped and they would find a way to arrest me if I didn’t keep my nose clean. You just kept trying to connect me to women you told me could let me use their regulars and I wouldn’t get busted.
When I feared my phone was being tapped and you were saying things like this – I didn’t want either of us to get into trouble so I stopped calling you back then. I found out I was right – my phone was being tapped and if I had let you say something like that on the tap you could have gone to jail sooner. I was also trying to look out for you.  [that’s our Jody- ever the lookout for our well being!]
When I told you I was afraid of being near anyone who was working as a prostitute WHILE I WAS ON PROBATION AND BEING FOLLOWED BY POLICE CONSTANTLY – you insisted that the women in COYOTE were “never arrested”. You told me that the women in COYOTE only saw “regulars” and therefore no one was getting busted. You told me that most of them hadn’t even taken on new clients in years and knew all of them well – and that to stay out of legal trouble the women would routinely share phone numbers of regulars with each other. You told me you knew these women and that if I wanted to keep working that I could do so without fear of being arrested by having them connect me to their regulars. You were talking about such things with me on the phone after I told you the phone was tapped. I had cautioned you that I had been followed back after having lunch with you, and the tap light went on my phone when you called me. Yet you continued to talk about actively working in the business. You told me you weren’t going to let anyone stop you, and that with your regulars you were not worried about anyone arresting you. You said these things on the phone after I had warned you everything around me was tapped. Yes I stopped talking to you during my probation because you kept insisting it was still possible for me to “work just like you were” without fear of arrest. That scared the hell out of me.”

Does she really believe that, knowing MY phone was tapped as I told HER it was, that I would say such things to ANYONE, much less to a complete stranger? (and the claim that I continued to call her, after ‘our luncheon’- priceless!!! She’s the one who can’t go away gracefully-  I wouldn’t call her back again ever- because she was very scary even then!)  There were no COYOTE meetings at the time; I was involved with COYOTE San Francisco, but there wasn’t yet a COYOTE LA chapter in which I was involved, no ‘women’ who had these clients who would pay HER(?) so who these so called COYOTE women were in 1985, I have no idea! She says that I wasn’t worried about anyone arresting ME? I was terrified to leave the house for fear I would be arrested for looking at a cop the wrong way. Yet she claims that I would actively work in the business or COMMIT A FELONY WITH EVERY CONVERSATION SHE CLAIMS WE HAD (but none of those conversations ever took place except in her evil mind) just so I could give HER work to earn but which I could not do? She thinks everyone is a madam because she was one. Isn’t one bad Penny in a lifetime enough?

My crime? I had to offer to pay the man to agree to see my ‘friend’ from the LAPD,  Penny, because she “sounded so unattractive…”  and she was… just as Jody was/is.  My phone was tapped when I was talking to Penny and she was setting me up,  and knowing that my phones were still tapped,  why would I ‘pander’  this woman whom I had never met before our luncheon – who was a big time madam and who had allegedly received PROBATION for PIMPING AND PANDERING, while I was going to prison for trying to get my unattractive friend PENNY laid (and charged with only ONE count of pandering)??? What did she do for the cops to get out of being sentenced under the MANDATORY sentence under which I was going to prison?

I couldn’t afford to keep paying men to see these unattractive bitches- NOR was I willing to go to prison for PANDERING Jody’s lying ass under ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!  Really, Jody, you need to be more creative with your lies. We aren’t all as nutty as you are!

Well, perhaps it wasn’t Jody after all, as she continues to claim that it is someone else doing all the lying and sending these harassing emails and Facebook messages… she tells me that she ‘accidentally pushed the wrong button’ to send messages she had written to me… Jody, dear, you need help. LOTS and LOTS of help. For everyone’s sake, please get some.

UPDATE JUNE 22, 2015

Despite the fact that there are public records which show that I was not ever convicted of ‘pimping’ (“living off the earnings of a prostitute in full or in part” according to California penal code at the time of my arrest for ONE count of PANDERING- “encouraging a person to commit an act of prostitution” which I did when I tried to fulfill the sexual fantasy of my one time ‘friend’ Penny Isgro, a ‘date’ that I was paying for as my client was not interested in having sex with the woman described by the DA as a football player and very unattractive, much like Jody Williams) but rather convicted of that ONE COUNT of pandering, not “pimping” as the lying Jody claimed in her unsolicited text message to a woman who has repeatedly asked Jody to STOP contacting her for ANY REASON. “Maxine and Norma are convicted pimps not me.” Jody was a madam, and apparently did the same thing to those who worked for her as she does to those who do not want her help – she bullies them incessantly. That she was not convicted of that shows that she somehow sold her soul to the devil and did NOT go to prison for her ‘crimes.’ Jody cannot stop with her lies no matter what. Anyone who has anything to do with this woman for any reason ought to have a mental evaluation, if, after their first encounter with Jody, they continue to have anything to do with her.

UPDATE JUNE 26, 2015

‘sex workers anonymous.com’

Jody Williams (very likely a pseudonym) has a ‘project’ which she calls ‘sex workers anonymous’ formerly known as ‘prostitutes anonymous’. Jody Williams authors a website at sexworkersanonymous.com.

A number of people genuinely seeking help have contacted her site based on the site’s claims that ‘sex workers anonymous’ provides assistance, support and help as well as protecting identities and respecting confidentiality. According to the witnesses who will be sharing their experiences here, the reality of what has happened when dealing with Jody Williams and or ‘sex workers anonymous’ is a far cry from assistance, support or help, let alone discretion, confidentially, or anonymity. This is very concerning under the circumstances.

This blog will explain what numerous people have experienced when dealing with Jody Williams and her ‘sex workers anonymous’.

Jody will likely threaten this blog with a lawsuit. Jody forgets that we have a first amendment right to express our experiences and feelings. She will likely say that this blog is a ‘cat fishing’ spoof which apparently is one of her excuses when she gets called out for her unethical behaviors (“that wasn’t me!” she says).

After being called out when one of the witnesses spoke out about her behaviors, Jody claimed that someone else was responsible, someone else had taken over her email and phone and was-is texting people AS her, from her number. Somehow Jody Williams is so important- someone has hacked her phone and email accounts and whomever has done this, is the one sending the awful communications which have been sent to people.

The reason we feel compelled to create a blog about this- we wonder how many sex workers who are in vulnerable circumstances end up unwittingly calling her number seeking help- only to find themselves in situations they did not bargain for. We wonder why (IF EVER in truth)- she is taken seriously as an ‘expert’ which she constantly claims she is, regarding prostitution and or sex trafficking. Based on what we have witnessed and experienced, in our opinion, this person, whoever she really is, has no business doing what she is doing. We urge you to use discretion and after considering what will be presented, to decide for yourself of course.

We will be exploring Jody Williams of ‘sex workers anonymous’ and other self appointed ‘rescuers’ and ‘saviors’. Are these people really helping? Or do they really only amount to parasites who are looking for ways to profit and personally benefit in some way, from the criminalization of sex workers?

‘Rescue organizations’ ‘Diversion programs’  and ‘prostitution related treatment programs’ court ordered or not- are not regulated, there is no system of accountability and there is a lot of room for a wide variety of abuses.

Have you had an experience with ‘sex workers anonymous’ or ‘Jody Williams’? We would like to hear from you!

The information provided here involves direct experience with Jody Williams, after people contacted her thru her site at sexworkersanonymous.com, as well as experiences that were never invited to any degree. Jody has relentlessly attacked a number of people via social media and email.
