We are in a state of Chaos and damn near Armageddon and a Pandemic..
So truthfully I don’t want to even address this, but it’s amazing the shit you
see on Twitter.
I remember a time when sex workers used to actually help keep each other “up” meaning
we didn’t tear each other down. Especially when it came to women of color sex workers.
I am most offended by the fact that say what you want to about me “haters” but I have
said this time and TIME again and the masses for the most part who have talked with me, dealt with me
who don’t feel entitled and arrogant enough to think I have to give to their every demand will also agree with me.
I have spent YEARS, being a positive light in the community. I have mentored ladies, some for free. I have
built sites for some ladies for free. I am not going to do that for everyone, NO I am not but even when I do
charge my fees are reasonable. Anyone who has had me as an assistant or web designer so long as they were respectful of me will tell you that I treated them like family, I was kind, I let them vent. If too many days pass by I check on them. I still did that when Covid started even with ladies I no longer work for. Ask them and they will attest to that.
So Imagine how it feels to me to be a BLACK SMALL BUSINESS OWNER and be attacked not only by other white sex workers, BUT also by “sisters, WOC” Who I was never anything other than reasonable with. I noticed one of them (out of Chicago again lol )blocked me, she is probably part two of the little minions who did the Lipstick Alley thing. Let me explain about her. So she came to me once on Twitter for advice maybe 2 years ago.
Then she paid I think 300 or 350 to have site work done. During that time I had some personal stuff going on .. BUT I stayed in contact both email and also on Twitter DM with her and let her know about delays. There was NEVER any I took her money and disappeared. In the last convo I told her her site would be done in a week I believe it was, again this convo was at least a year ago. As my site states If you cancel or decide you do not want
a service and especially because you are rushing me and cannot reasonably give me a few more days, when I am doing site work at a fraction of what I normally charge then,as it states I have 14 days to get the refund back to you!
I sent her her full refund!! I was not rude to her and even directed her to the policy on my page when she asked questions about it.
SO its funny to me that she has been part of the band wagon of haters trying to tear down my business!
It even funnier to me that she has me blocked on Twitter. Shes probably had me blocked forever and I honestly would never have noticed if it weren’t for the black lives matter thread she was in.. that somehow brought her back into my feed.
In other words, if blocking me , whenever it happened was meant to insult or hurt me.. lol… It didn’t because it is not someone who I normally socialize with or talk to.
This is just one of many examples of how we will pay EVERY white web designer, photographer, graphics person in the universe!! BUT when it comes to wanting to see the other black sex worker prosper and do well, OUR OWN other black sex workers instead spread half truths or full on lies on situations. And make up
whatever narrative they want to stir drama when they have a beef with you that LITERALLY has nothing to do with your business or the quality of it.
When will the crabs in a barrel mentality stop? I’m just curious.
My actual client testimonials have been good for years, minus like 3-4 people out of over 60 customers ….maybe even more. I been doing web shit honestly since 2006
when we used to build using webs.com. So I assure you my character as a woman, a companion and a business owner is solid as hell.
This bullshit really needs to cease.
I been real cool, haven’t called any names etc. But please know I keep receipts, emails of all convos especially when there is an issue.
Please leave me and my business out of your mouth and lets keep it cute.
Yours Truly Storm
