Posted:I would like to make it very clear, once and for all, that I am not a stripper, have never been a stripper nor do I intend taking my clothes off for anyone other than my partner. I am the sort of person that takes the beach towel to the waterline...



Aside from today's April Fool's 'joke' , it appears that for some time now, rumours have been circulating about me (particularly in the UK) that I am a stripper. I find it ludicrous and insulting that people on the other side of this planet feel the need to dishonour me with these falsehoods, especially when I am not there to defend myself.



I want this to stop NOW.



I am quite a spiritual individual with a healthy self-respect; anyone that has met me can vouch for this. And I hope that anyone who has met me would defend me.



I would like to ask that any HOP member who may be privvy to a conversation about "flash fire being a stripper" to please point out that these are hurtful lies. These rumour-mongers really need to find something more constructive to talk about.



As you can see, I am quite upset by all of this. I would like to be able to turn the other cheek, but I take my reputation quite seriously so must make everything abundantly clear to our community.



If anyone would like to open a dialogue with me to perhaps explain why people are saying these things about me, please do not hesitate.



thanks

I have no idea what you are refering to, but you have my sympathy.

In South Africa I somehow got the reputation for being the worst kind of womanizer, even though I pretty much had nothing to do with women most of the time I was there.

I don't know how these things get started.

Posted:I've been following this for a while and I have come to the following flash:

I'm very sick with the flu right now so I hope this makes sense.

ok time to reason this through
1 - I have never heard this rumor from any one else
2 - Neither has any one else who has replied to any of the threads; at least not that they addmit (I'm trying to stay neutral with this here don't hurt me)
3 - This rumor claims to originate from the other side of the world
4 - I know your not making this up

from these givens I have to conclude the following.

this is the old rumor about a rumor trick designed to hide the actual starter of the rumor. For those who haven't seen this before it works like this.

- The rumor is thought of by this person
- The person who makes it up comes to you acting as the bearer of bad news
- They say: I hate to tell you this flash but I heard this nasty rumor about you thats been going around in the UK. This is next to impossible to conferm, and was what first warning flag that went up (right next to bs meter in my brain that then began going off like an air raid siren.)
- Next you thank the person for telling you this and they act sympathetic.
- now if all goes according to plan you then spread the rumor around yourself, trying to find the source/stop it. Causing you grief, and the sick person who started it the pleasure of starting a rumor, while being hidden.

Yes it's sick, yes it's twisted, and yah it's almost the last thing you expect. Ands it's done for everything from trying to cause you pain to trying to get in bed with you. I find rumors normally start a lot closer then most people think.

Anyway thats my theory for the day. Sh*t I should be in psyc not computer science.

Here's a hug for you flash hug hope you figure it out and drop kick the person.


In the 60's people took acid to make the world weird, now the world is weird and they take prozac to make it normal again.

Posted:Kaji has a good point, although in this instance I don't think it is the case.

A couple of years back, when HOP was a much smaller place (akin to a country town) I somehow managed to develop the reputation as the HOP slut. I think it was mostly because I was a noisy poster and was happy to flirt with most members... whatever - this never really bothered me that much.

More recently, a trusted friend told me that her ex-boyfriend (of HOP) told her he thought I was a stripper. This individual was from the USA (rumour location #1), however was set straight by my friend as soon as the subject arose.

During the past 24hours, in addition to the April Fool's Joke, I have recieved PMs of two individuals from the UK telling me that they have overheard/been part of conversations about me and my supposed erotic dancing. The reason I recieved these PMs is cos the April Fools joke thread I started reminded these people of past conversations. I would like to thank both these people for having the courage to tell me what's being said.

So, although Kaji has a good (and very scary) theory, I trust my informants. To be honest, I don't really want to know who is saying this stuff about me, I just want it to stop.

thanks again everyone. Your support in this has made me feel better smile

i think you got a greta bod but im biast so meh

to for those out there who this stripping is wrongg give me 5 good resons why??

i have quit a few friends who strip for a living
or who have striped

some to help through uni
some to just pay the bills and one or to to help bring up there child who they look after by them self

if this is the only way they found they can make enough money to live then that is there choice no one elses to tel them its wrong so just keep your thoughts to yourself


i have seen the said performance that started this whole [censored] off and cat tell you all that there is in no way any mevoval of clothing. some may deeam this performance to have been erotic but i saw it a sensual and very beutiful

so jut get your imature little mind from out of the gutter and grow up

miss flashy pants im sorry for starting a kettle of fish form brewing again
hug hug hug hug hug hug

ps if you were one of the people to start this and she finds out who you are id be hiding very well if i was your cause flash is not some one to be mest with when she is pissed off
if seen what she is capable of if you tick her off big enough for her to react
and this is somthing that falls into that category

Posted:I actually agree with Storma on a couple of things. I had a friend in college who was a physics major with a mathematics minor and a Black-Belt in Karate. And she had such a gorgeous body, it turned me on!

She learned that she could make mega-$$$ by stripping. So she found a strip club with a female manager who took good care of her dancers. And she paid her way through a fair amount of college by working far fewer hours than most students who were working at US$8 an hour (she made more like US$80 an hour).

And she had LOTS of self-respect. And she could kick the arse of any drunken creep who laid hands on her other than to stuff a tip in her G-string.

Posted:Honey hug . I think this one started way back in the eons of time as a misunderstanding. I did hear it way back when, and fortunately knew you and knew otherwise, and said so. It does seem as though no one recent on the board has come into contact with it.

A couple of people have asked "what's wrong with being a stripper?". The answer would be "there is nothing wrong with it". But I think in this instance the term has been used in a way that implies a lot of things, that are very much not true. So whilst there is nothing wrong with being a stripper, there is a lot wrong with saying someone is a stripper as a way of implying a set of behaviours and attitudes.

hug Just carry on shining, sweet princess.

Posted:Out of respect for Flash I don't think we should endulge the "what's so wrong with being a stripper" arguement ON THIS THREAD. And since it's a sensitive topic right now all over HoP, maybe even THIS SITE.

It's an interesting arguement which I'd love to participate in but I don't think that this is the time or the place.

Flash clearly has expressed discomfort with these claims and I think we should respect her discomfort.
