i wrote the following e-mail to, the only e-mail address i could find on their website.


To whom it may concern:

I do not in fact need help. I just wanted to say that I cringe every time I see your “legalize frostitution” gear. I do not mean to be a jerk, but wanted to point out, as you must know, that those shirts are one small line away from a very real and serious issue. I work with prostituted youth in Seattle and I hate that everyone who sees and wears those shirts are handed a lighthearted view of the plights of those girls. Thank you for your time. I hope this meant something to you.

my world is not simple. it’s not easy. it’s not hard or complex. it’s neither heroic nor selfish. i’m following my insides my compulsions my God and i want your love and respect for being me, the me you loved and respected before all this. i know you love me.
i will not live on a pedestal nor be your vicarious adventure. live yours. follow your insides your compulsions your god(s). that’s what i want for you. i love you. so be you, loving me, remembering how much i love who you are.
this is my new endeavor to include you and remind us both that i am a human on a journey. a fun one. a journey full of personal growth. one with new people places phone numbers practices (totem) poles and praise. but i do mess up sometimes, get dirty, disappoint me and i hope even you once in a while. i have miserable days blah ones and joyous ones. my journey needs lots of editting. and i miss you plenty so please help me edit.
