HARASSMENT HELP FOR CREATIVES
Disclaimer: If what you need is legal counsel, this resource should not be used as a substitute for talking with your lawyer or local law enforecement. If you are in need of theraputic help, scroll down this page for more information. I am simply an adult content creator who wishes to offer resources to help my fellow humans in times of potential or immediate crisis related to taboo artistic expression.
My fiction is not real, the people in my fiction are not real - my actions are real, helping my fellow creatives is real.
No one, and I mean no one deserves to be abused for their artistic expression.
I'M BEING HARASSED - WHAT DO I DO?
Take a deep breath.
A harassment campaign has either started, or is in progress - what do you do?
Crash Override is a crisis helpline, advocacy group and resource center for people who are experiencing online abuse. We are a network of experts and survivors who work directly with victims, tech companies, lawmakers, media, security experts, and law enforecement to educate and provide direct assisstance working to eliminate the causes of online abuse.
If you are an artist who got dog-piled
Krad is an artist who is intimately familiar with seeing people get harassed and dog-piled, and has written an extensive, comprehensive resource specifically for kink artists who have been, or are in the process of, being dog-piled.
Lindsay Ellis at xoxo 2019
Lindsay talks about her experiences of being the target of an alt-right harassment campaign that, at the time of the talk, still seemed to be on-going. This talk is specifically about alt-right harassment, but can be applied to any kind of harassment campaign in broad strokes.
Contrapoints on Being Canceled
Natalie Wynn discusses the basics, abstractions, and mechanisms of "cancel culture" as vigilante mob justice in explicit detail. She then goes on to talk about her own experience with cancel culture, which, at the time of the video's posting, is still on-going. Natalie's essay is specifically discussing how cancel culture operates within queer community spaces, but can, once again, be applied to any kind of harassment campaign and mobbing.
HEALTH, ABUSE, AND THERAPY RESOURCES
Disclaimer: If you're not of the age of majority in the US - 18 years of age or older - and you've found my website, please understand that my art and my writing are works of fictional fantasy and that they do not, and should never reflect reality in any regard.
I am not a therapist, psychologist, doctor, or any kind of professional healthcare provider. I am an adult content creator who wants to offer resources where and how I can to combat the stigma associated with real life sexuality and abuse.
Please do not consult me for advice or contact me to confide in me - I am an online stranger, please do not blindly trust online strangers with your sensitive information. Sensitive information includes information regarding your mental wellness, any of your diagnosies, your legal name, address, phone number, or any serious help that you might need.
If you need help, advice, or therapy, I suggest browsing Psychology Today (if you are in the United States) to find a therapist or counselor in your area that's right for you and your individual healthcare needs.
My work is for an adult audience only, and I ask that you leave my site immediately if you are not an adult.
RESOURCES FOR TEENS
If you are curious about sex and you're trying to find educational resources to learn from, my work is not the place for you to educate yourself. I am an adult who writes and draws fictional content for other adults who have a healthy understanding of the distinctions between fantasy and reality.
Here are some websites where you can learn all about sex, gender, relationships, nutrition, and body health in an age-appropriate way.

SEXUAL, FAMILIAL, AND RELATIONSHIP ABUSE RESOURCES
If you're being hurt by someone in your family, a family friend, one of your friends online or offline, or someone you're in a relationship with online or offline: you are not alone, you are not dirty, and you are not broken. What is happening to you, or has happened to you, is not your fault.
Here are resources that I've found that may be helpful to you in a time of crisis. Please stay safe, and go to a trusted adult - like a school counselor, a teacher, a parent, or other family member if you're a teen - or trusted friend if you are an adult - if you are in need of serious, immediate help.

PEDOPHILE AND MINOR ATTRACTED PERSON RESOURCES
If you are an adult with an attraction to minors and you are worried you might be a danger to yourself or others, take a deep breath. You are not alone, there is help available to you that will not shame you for your attraction. You are not an irredeemable monster, you are not beyond help and support, and attraction is not the same as action.
Here are some resources I've found. If needed, do your very best to find a compassionate therapist who will work with you to make certain you never harm a living soul - including yourself.
"Individuals who are sexually attracted to children are the focus of everything that we do. Compassionate assistance in dealing with the difficulties of living in a society with an attraction to minors is essential to our success. Integrity is never compromised. Diversity is recognized and respected."
The Prostasia Foundation
"Protecting children from sexual abuse is a cause that everyone can unite behind. Often, however, the measures we take to combat child sexual abuse (CSA) are less effective than they should be, because they are driven by emotion rather than evidence. In striving to protect children from abuse, we may end up harming them and others."
"Circles of Support and Accountability (Circles) build safer communities through local volunteers working with sex offenders to minimize alienation, support reintegration and so prevent sexual reoffending."
"The Prevention Network offers a free and confidential treatment (there is no mandatory report law in Germany) option at all of its sites for people seeking therapeutic help with their sexual preference for children and/or early adolescents."
Stop It Now!
"Stop it Now! UK and Ireland is a child sexual abuse prevention campaign and helpline. It is run by The Lucy Faithfull Foundation, the only UK-wide child protection charity dedicated solely to preventing child sexual abuse."
