Fans and Stalkers Online – they are NOT the same thing!

Sooooo…..after looking at my WordPress blog (here), Twitter, FB page, FB profile, Tumblr, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and Instagram, I’ve concluded that A) the creep who was stalking me like a little bitch paused or stopped after I warned him that I’m not one to fuck with and I do believe in filing police reports (yes, if you post creepy, threatening shit to someone you’ve never met you are a creep–esp if you are dumb enough to do it for someone else who’s also a creep–which does apply in this case) and B) I have some true blue fans, including a trans-femme submissive who apparently admires cis women who are older and buxom — he clearly interprets me as a domme (though I am older, buxom, and submissive in my own right). I’m cool with being admired by people of all genders and sexualities. It’s nice, actually. But I prefer folk a bit closer to my age, i.e., gen-x or younger baby-boomers, which means 40s-60s. And closer, which means the DMV area.

Mind you, I am one of billions on this planet using social media on this planet.  Start with your follow list, and move to your stats.

Be careful out there, fam.  Even academics can attract some stalkers online.
