Sex Work: The Cost of Honesty

The high price of just trying to tell the truth

Has an NGO campaign to abolish prostitution without mandate or consultation with those it claims to "save" reached the point of standing above the law?

I am a middle aged woman.
I am autistic.
I suffer from compund PTSD since childhood
I suffer from spinal arthritis that limits my capacity to defend myself.
I am left with impaired mobility after a compound fracture that limits my ability to defend myself.
I need support and counselling to overcome a recent trauma related to both sex and violence that is off the richter scale.

The organisations funded to offer such support, instead has given full support to the publication of my name, remote rural address and private phone numbers in a context acknowledged to stigmatise and incite several kinds of danger on page 1289 here:

Because of my autism and compound PTSD the remote home I have lived in alone for 25 years is imperative to my functionality and survival. This is documented. I have no family or family home and no community or other support. I would not be able to recover from or survive moving for any reason

My address was published in retaliation because I made a factual statement on oath against fraud to which I am an eye witness, as is my obligation under law. It was also published as part of an ongoing strategy of intimidating others out of making similar challenges to the blatant and dangerous lies told in this issue.

The final page of my sworn deposition was also deliberately concealed, the text appears here:

I have slept in hour long bursts with a weapon beside me ever since.

This was compounded by the hosting of deliberate named incitement to the very worst kind of hatred and harm on this page here, since July:

All of these activties are unlawful, but for someone isolated like me without family or community supports and too poor to pay for a solicitor there is no effective access to the protection of that law.

As things stand, either the wrong nutcase will be inspired to come here and do me harm, or I will eventually be driven sleep deprived to suicide to escape the constant fear. While striving to come to terms with other horrific abuse alone, without access to any kind of support or counselling that I could conceivably trust not to mean me harm.

Good Job
