Tales From Under A Middle-Aged Colored Woman

Somehow My Name and Blog Has Been Put On A Hard Porn Site.

I wasn't sure if I should talk about this publicly, but if someone did deliberately put my name on this site, they want me to feel afraid and ashamed.  I am tired of people crapping on me.  I have decided to tell my story and maybe it will help someone else out there besides me. 

The site is so sickening I cannot go on it to see how my name is on there.  My son went on and I was so repulsed by what he was exposing himself to, that I made him get off of it.

Also, I am scared that someone could see my name and come after me thinking I am interested in that way of life.  Not to mention what potential employers will think.  Sweet Jesus help me through this one!

The first thing I am going to do is contact the site.  I have a person I suspect to be behind this, but right now I just want to get my name off the site.  Say a prayer for me.  12-9-10
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Held my breath, clenched my guts, gritted my teeth, and went on the site. 

I sent them this email:

Somehow my blog and name is attached to your site. I have never been on this site except for today. Please remove my name. I do not want any new adult friends.

This the reply email I received from them.

The problem is that I do not have a password, handle or anything else.  If I do, someone stole my identity.

My Reply:

Dear Customer Service,

I do not have an account with you. That is the problem.  This is what comes up:

(deleted)

Why is my name linked up to your website when I have never been on the site except to try and determine how to remove my name?

I am concerned about what potential employers and others will think. Could you please remove my name and blog from this site. I would really appreciate your help.

Thank You,
-------------------------------------------------------------------
It may be that someone on that site referred to my blog in some way.  Whatever the case, I need my name off that site asap!

I am disgusted with these crazy people.

It continues.

My Reply:

As I have told you repeatedly, I am and never would be a member of your site. You may find this difficult to believe, but some people are not interested in pornography.  Never address me as a Dear Member again.

If there is an account in my name, it has been put on your site frauduently. Please remove it. I have never been to your site before this disgusting incident. Once again, I say, if there is an account or profile with my name on it, my identity has been stolen. Someone else, not me, put the account on your site. I do not know how to make what I am saying to you any clearer.

Sincerely,

Yes, at this point I am losing my temper again.
Then I went to Google and filled out this form.

It seems that the porn site had my name on it as a result of some kind of spam gathering or sweep of some kind.  I speak about kinky and/or nappy hair on my blog and porn sites degrade the type of hair I love.  This incident has made me more aware of how women of color and all women are used as something to be tore down and humiliated in pornography.  What initially upset me was having my name associated with violence against humanity, but what I want to do now is expose how pornography works.  If it helps one person it will be worth it.
