He can judge me any which way he likes for how I felt about that article. You too, can judge me. I care not. I still feel the way I did, that I found it unpleasant.

If he wants to talk about projection, then should we look at his OTT reaction to the thoughts and views of strangers online? It's all subjective, surely?

I have supported your cause through a lot - I found your firing to be fricking ridiculous, and the way your ex is behaving right now to be beyond a joke... But I still dislike that article, and I'm entitled to. With, or without anyone else's judgement on me for that.

The problem is your and SexIs wanted to have it both ways. You admitted that it was people where going to read it "Taken out of context, not knowing important details" however that isn't a failing of the reader, that is a failing of you and SexIs for not providing the necessary context. This is isn't a question of being PC or self censorship it a question of effective communication. To "Acknowledge and learn from" that piece requires context. With out that context it nearly repetition of a journal entry.

Let me put it this way if a former raciest would to put a list of racial stereotypes he believed verbatim with out any context on website about race. No one would call that acknowledging and learning, because it of course isn't with out some context they are just insults. Or to use a personal example to used be anti-choice I can't take a journal entry from that time post up on a website unedited without context and expect a reader to magical assume that I'm actually a pro-choice ex catholic reflecting on that time, unless, I you know tell them that.

Providing context isn't censoring, In actually by not providing context your are actually holding back information both you and the editors know the contextual information surrounding this, not giving to the readers as well only does a disservice.

I’m truly sorry some people took the article personally, or were caught off-guard, and flamed me for being “anti-fat” or “body-negative,” but I do not apologize for being open and honest.

That may very well be the worst excuse for an "apology" I have ever seen. You cannot apologize for other people's feelings or actions, only your own. You haven't apologized for anything. In fact that entire "I'm sorry" statement was just another way to insult people while patting yourself on the back.

I am an ex street hooker (working girl I prefer) I still do erotic massage. my attitude towards the thousand or so johns on the street was vastly different from that of most of the other working girls. by the end my best friend from the street was ripping most of her johns off- even getting them beat up by her boyfriend. I do not judge her. living on the street and having boundary-less sex for insultingly low sums of money is severely tough and different people deal with it different ways. believe me- most johns are not the most respectful men in the world (though many are) and under those type of conditions its understandable that women that are that intensely objectified can be harsh and somewhat judgemental- after all life like that is judged every second of the day. personally I felt better about myself if I held on to my gentle nature and reminded myself that though I was under extreme duress i was still there by choice and generally was treated better if I treated them better. what I'm trying to say is that you can't judge a life that you have not led- in fact you can't even really judge a life that was almost identical to the one you did. we all deal with things different ways but being honest and upfront is something to admire- regardless of her experiences are seen by your eyes.

Interviews with The Beautiful Kind

  • For TBK, this interview is all about Coming Out as a Sex Positive Slut in the Midwest Bible Belt. What made Kendra decide to “come out”? What was it like being fired from her job for her personal blog? What are her plans now that she is fully embracing her identity?

    Kendra Holliday is The Beautiful Kind, a 38-year-old bisexual mother living in St. Louis, MO. She has been boldly and bravely exploring sex for over 20 years, and has spent the past four years documenting her wild adventures anonymously online as a Sex Writer, Consultant, and Editor of TheBeautifulKind.com. So, on Coming Out Day, and in keeping with her belief that sex should be discussed openly and honestly in the light of day instead of whispered secretively in the dark, she has made the difficult but vital decision to fully own all that she has done - the good, the bad, and the ugly. And now she is telling you her name, showing you her face, telling you her story (did you see the [http://www.edenfantasys.com/sexis/sex-and-society/coming-out-day-beautiful-kind-1011101/|video interview] on SexIs yet?!), and taking your questions here. You may recall that The Beautiful Kind made national news in April when she was dramatically fired from her full-time day job for writing about sex in her personal life under a pen name. In a random Google search, TBK's employer found her real name unknowingly linked to her personal website, and based her immediate termination on this sole instance. The employer has continually declined public comment. Countless blogs and media websites picked up the scandalous story, including Inc.com, Business Insider, Glamour, Huffington Post, digg, Jezebel, Fleshbot, and Mental_Floss. During that difficult time, TBK took her website down for a few weeks and focused on writing her empowering ebook The Book of Goddess: Elevating Your Desirability to Mythic Proportions. Kendra shares: “I'm grateful to my friends and family for supporting my decision. There's no telling what will come of this bold move, but I'm confident coming out will open up many new doors and be an inspiration to others. We all want to be accepted for who we are.” Kendra writes openly about her current life experiences on her own site, as well as her former days as a sex worker, in her column, [http://www.edenfantasys.com/sexis/columns/the-whore-journals/| The Whore Journals] on SexIs. Kendra is embracing her future by focusing on ways to give back to the community and to educate others. As a founding member of a new not-for-profit community organization, Sex Positive St. Louis (SEX+STL), she is excited about the potential of this online community resource for local sex positive events, partnerships with organizations, and information sharing. As Kendra plans workshops and speaking events, both independently and with SEX+STL, EdenFantasys will be sponsoring her efforts. We are very much looking forward to this new chapter in the beautiful life of Kendra Holliday, The Beautiful Kind, as she continues to elevate her sex positive mission!
