Shelley Lubben and Research…

Okay, so I’ve been searching for dirt – and I’m just not finding any dirt on Shelley Lubben. On youtube – people keep claiming that we aren’t doing our research – right? They keep claiming that Shelley Lubben can’t be trusted or whatever, yet I can’t find any dirt.
Where are they getting THEIR research? Okay, I understand why people get annoyed sometimes, “Give me your links” or asking basic questions about feminism that can be easily found with a quick google search….if yer going to question other people’s research – you better be ready to offer up your own.
I googled her and I have found NO dirt on her. The ONLY dirt I found on her was someone who was complaining about how she doesn’t have a real degree in counseling (which WHATEVER… a lot of drug counseling is done with people who don’t have real degrees as well… So much for AA or NA etc and just about every state sanctioned drug abuse counseler).
So where is this dirt on Shelley Lubben? Seriously tattooskin – where is this research? Why are you all afraid to post your “research” in the low bar, you had to get your info that she can’t be trusted SOMEWHERE.
The messed up thing is that they don’t even say which things are not to be trusted about her (other than her believing in Christ – which is just a fundamentalist atheist knee jerk reaction). They don’t even say that she was never a porn star, they don’t even claim that she’s pocketing money… So what is this dirt?
They aren’t even saying “These testimonies are false, Shelley just made them up, they are people that never even worked in the sex industry.” They aren’t even saying that it is a lie she lost half of her cervix because of getting HPV working as a porn actress. SO what is this research that they have access to, that I can’t find ANYWHERE.
I mean, other than them being offended she’s a Christian – I can’t find anything. And seriously – I bet the worst dirt they could dig up on her – is that she spends donations on herself or something (which I doubt and WHATEVER, that kind of crap doesn’t really discredit all the other people with their testimonies on the website).
I SMELL bullshit. Unless someone can offer me up some links with GOOD CREDENTIALS – not some BS website pimping pornography out to people. Until I have hard evidence, what right do I have to assume she’s a liar and all the people she’s helped are either fake or liars as well?
Oh and there are always these claims that places like Pink Cross and a lot of the websites that are trying to reduce sex trafficking “can’t be trusted because they have an anti-porn angle and some of their funds go towards getting people to stop purchasing porn.” SO WHAT?!?!?! And where is YOUR research? Where is it? Coming straight from the multi-billion dollar porn industry? Is that the type of research YOU are willing to trust?!?! They have to be kidding, this kind of stupidity doesn’t exist in the west does it? (Dope, I guess there is that kind of stupidity).
These people make these claims – without offering ANY LINKS. Hmmmm, why is that? Why aren’t they offering any links up or THEIR research, which is so superior to my own?
It’s like any time someone mentions the horrors a lot of women face in the sex industry there has to be a stupid disclaimer pointing out, “I understand not ALL women are harmed the way these women were.” – otherwise people get their panties in a bunch. It would be like me showing up to a video about textile sweatshops and beling like, “Not all textile factories treat their employees like this.” LUDICROUS I tell ya!!
Anyway – I’d like to see any research on Shelley that people have found. Tattoo claims to read the feminists blogs from youtube, so if ya are reading this – offer up your “research” or shut up about it. Otherwise you are just acting like a bafoon.

    Goddess, this kind of hate-mongering towards Shelley Lubben pisses me off. Especially the complaining about Christianity part, I hate religion as much as the next atheist, but the fact remains that she is actually DOING SOMETHING TO HELP these prostituted womyn escape from the industry that is doing them harm.

    I mean, let’s think, would any of them really want to go to a pro-porner and say ‘hey, i’m sick of being raped and abused for money, can you help me out here?’ to only get told ‘are you sure, you’re probably just doing it ‘wrong” or brushed aside as a “victim”, someone who is going to accept you and actually help you is obviously the better choice.

    Wow, I’m astounded you guys even care enough to write about me and my mission. I was online looking for some info and came across this. I didn’t know I had people who defended me. I am honored. I don’t know what to say except thank you for keeping an open mind.

    Have a great day,

      Shelley – I don’t doubt the work that you do… This was just a plea from me, because I’m so tired of people discrediting your work on the basis that you believe in Christ. It’s ridiculous! I may not have the same religious views as you but I definitely understand the things you’ve had to live through and how they affect women everywhere. A lot of great feminists on youtube have defended you against the fundamentalist atheists on there. And NO, THANK YOU for having the courage to stand up against so many judgemental people! And for helping all of the people you have been helping. Your work is to be respected! The anti-porn feminists on youtube and in blogs everywhere know what an uphill battle it is to be heard on this topic…
      Peace and Love
