I am very pleased to announce that the "Internet Impostors" pages created by the owner of Gallery of Goddesses have been saved from oblivion!

This is part of my larger look at the issue of trans wannabes on the internet and issues of internet safety for young people.

I present the pages below without comment or editing. The only changes I have made from the originals is to add navigation links at the top and bottom.


Internet Imposters 3


This getting beyond a bad joke....

But the more they put up, the more I'll take down....

 

"Janina", formerly of Wellesley/7159/janina.html
"Janina" was using pictures of the famous Indian actress Manisha Koirala
Now that she has been exposed as a fake, it all makes sense that
"Janina" moved to Central Asia on Public Health Field Work and
that her 'brother' is 'allowed' to use her old website!
Thanks to Karga who set the ball rolling on this one for me

"Sarah Leigh", of WestHollywood/Village/5923/
Again, this one is a little different.....
In mid-April 1999 I was contacted by a young pre-everything TS
who was very upset and apologized profusely for her website,
saying she did not mean to truly mislead anyone, and admitted that
the pics of "Sarah Leigh" (now her 'old' female self; she now goes
by another name) were of some British model, and that is how she
would like to be seen by the world. The only problem now is, she's lost
access to her site and cannot take down the pics!
I thank her for her courage and honesty in telling me this, and no,
I'm not too upset by this. I honestly wish her the best of luck in
making the tough decisions (as I once had to), but I hope she understands
why I had to include the pics of "Sarah Leigh" here.....

"Angela Clarke", of WestHollywood/Stonewall/7048/
"Angela", supposedly from Canada,
uses a picture of New Jersey-area model Angela Shaffer
Thanks to "Michelle" who pointed this out to me

"Karen", formerly of WestHollywood/Park/5298/
"Karen" was an absolutely appalling imposter!
One of the pictures used by her was in fact the logo
for an adult-oriented picture website, not to mention
that her 'bio' was pretty much ripped out of a thousand
TG novels in terms of its content. Thank goodness this site is now gone forever....

"Penny Marshal", formerly of FashionAvenue/Salon/9775/
To me, "Penny" was an imposter in the same style
of website as "Melanie Binouche". Apart from the "TG fiction"-type
bio, how many 17-year-old girls do you know that would show off
like she did ? OK, that's just opinion, but as for evidence, how
about the fact the car she was sitting in in one of the photos
was left-hand drive, ie an American car, even though she said she was British.
Or the fact that the decor of the rooms she poses in is never found
in British hotels/motels, let alone houses. Or that the UK never
had the style of telephone shown in some of the pics.....
Thankfully it looks like Geocities has taken down this site
due to the content of some of "Penny's" pictures. Let's hope it doesn't return...
Thanks to Sarah West who made all of the above (and more!) valid points,
and to Chris for telling me what UK and US motel rooms were like!

And now, the definitive proof : "Penny" was using pictures of a model
named Vanessa from a Las Vegas Lovely Legs website......
Thanks to 'Sexy Michelle' for pointing this out to me

"Trisha Karg", of www.geocities.com/trishatg
I don't know whether it can get more blatant than this....
"Trisha" is using Tiffany Ciani's photos as her own
Thanks to "J" for this info

Ptui!!! (Sound of the Worshipper's dummy being spat
because there are more fakes here)

 

If any or all of these are not the case, then someone prove it to me!
As Mulder says : "I want to believe"
