for statement.


I am publishing this intimate photo and making this statement, for the following reason:

Naively, I crossed over into the Sports-Entertainment
World, as a Fine Artist, without an Agent, PR Personnel or Personal Security.

From the late 1990s to 2012, I painted and drew at Men's Professional Basketball and Baseball Games. I can paint and draw an Athlete in motion.

Here, I am painting at The West 4th Pro Classic Championship Game, in 2005.

Here, I am painting at Yankee Stadium, in the late 2000s.

I was not going to parties, clubs or bars.

I did not socialize in that scene.

I was living with Derreck Alexander from 1999 - 2011 — with one Man — only.


TALK IS NOT HARMLESS.
SLANDER AND LIBEL ARE
A LOADED GUN.


While I was only with Derreck Alexander for 12 years, at Pro Sports Games, I was surrrounded by Athletes and Entertainers of both genders who party, serial date and sleep around all the time.

Those people have Sports Organizations and PR Teams to handle their public image — to keep them looking clean.

I did not.

No one was representing me.

I believed that I was safe, because I was just a Fine Artist, painting and drawing, and going home to Derreck Alexander — as he can confirm.

I was wrong. I was not safe.

Strangers had crazy fantasies, or were jealous
and malicious.

Some of them — with PR and Entertainment World interests protecting them — lied about me.

I was an easy target: overly trusting, naive about that world, no PR Team of my own.

My Jewish last name also made me a target. Anti-Semitism in pop culture, throughout my adult life, has been consistently horrendous.

The anti-Semitic scapegoating, has only gotten worse in recent years, with the rise of extreme populism on the right and the left.

Painting in the midst of the Sports-Entertainment World — caused my life to be drastically harmed — by other
people's bigotry and insanity.


DERRECK'S REAL DOMINANCE

Derreck — an amazing, Dominant Athlete — himself — had the self-confidence to support this art.

He was not internally weak — so he did not need to tear me down — to feel better about himself.

Derreck did not play public, psychopathic Master-Slave games with me.

He did not need to obsessively prove to everyone that he was the "top."

He did not insanely stalk me online or in person — in order to obsessively micro-manage every detail of my existence.

Derreck Alexander is not a paranoid sociopath.

While I have been a law-abiding U.S. Citizen, my entire life:

As a result of having naively painted in the Pro Sports World — my human rights, my constitutional rights — have been severely trampled on.


ANTI-STRAIGHT HATE CRIMES ARE JUST AS EVIL AND ILLEGAL AS LGBT BASHING.

This trampling on my rights has been driven by the mental illness of others, towards a Straight Female American Artist, with a Jewish last name.

There is nothing in Federal, State or Local Law, that permits this murderous hate to go on.

Those Little Hitlers and Hitlerettes who need to demean and destroy others for their identity — including for being Straight — do so out of their own weakness and
mental illness.


HEADED STRAIGHT HOME

Regardless of one's bank account, the sort of backbone that Derreck Alexander showed in supporting me painting and drawing in the Men's Professional Sports World, is rare and priceless.

So, of course, after every game, I headed straight back
to Derreck.

Derreck and I were entirely faithful to one another.

Nevertheless:

Performing publicly in that world — a Female Artist — painting Male Athletes — brought on crazy gossip and slander — from strangers — of both genders.

"Funny" people said childish stuff.

Both racism and anti-semitism played a part.

And a whole lot of jealousy.


WE ARE NOT YOUR "N'S"

I am a Straight, Contemporary Female Artist, who slept with one Man — only — for over 12 years. We temporarily separated in 2011. Even so, after we separated, I was not running around.

And, any of those funny folk, slandering or libeling me — or those whom I care about — would lose in court.


DERRECK WAS A GOOD FIT.
THERE WAS NO TALKING.


Click here: I am many years younger than my
chronological age
— although I never take anything for granted, and always remain self-disciplined about
leading a healthy life.

I was considered to be a naturally talented ballet and modern dancer, growing up. I am small-boned, with a strong core, glutes and legs, and a delicate but toned, upper body. (While I am not flat-chested, Ballet Dancers are not chesty. That does not look graceful).

My type of Man is this: Athletic, Fit, Confident, Talented and Gifted — but not an academic.

Derreck was a good fit. He approached me boldy and directly, and said "Hello."

There was no talking.
