English singer “Sweet Anita” (32) criticizes the government in Great Britain for not doing enough against stalking. She is fighting for change, but she doesn’t know where to start.
What’s the deal with stalking? Stalking is “the repeated unlawful pursuit of a person, stalking, harassing, threatening and intimidating a person against his will.” Stalkers are often ex-relationship partners (trans Police tip), but especially with people who are in the public eye, supposed fans can also develop unhealthy obsessions.
Singer Kaitlyn “Amooranth” Siragusa reported in June 2022 about a stalker who moved from Estonia to a hotel near her because of her. On March 2, 2023, she said on her personal Twitter account that the man returned and attempted to storm her while she was attending a press conference for her boxing event.
On March 3rd, English singer Sweet Anita also reported via Twitter and opened up about her experiences with stalking and her attempts to change something in the legal situation.
What experiences does the streamer have with stalkers? As a streamer mentioned, years ago she had to defend herself against a burglar in her home. Later, someone slept in her garden, waited for her to leave the house, and attacked her in front of eyewitnesses.
The 32-year-old said the police did nothing in both cases. We’ve included a thread starter here for you:
What did you do? Sweet Anita says she has raised the issue of “stalking” directly with UK lawmakers. I submitted with a member of Parliament proposals to prosecute the stalkers.
However, the streamers’ proposals were rejected. According to Sweet Anita, it appears the government is already doing enough. Meanwhile, people will die or their lives will be ruined.
My friends and the people I love are completely ignored while their lives are on the line. “Technically” illegal behavior will not be prosecuted.
Sweet Anita stresses that this is not only a problem in her country. Amoranth’s condition will appear to be a global problem.
In the comments, many women share their own experiences with stalkers. German streamer Baso also commented on the topic and condemned what women have to deal with online (via Twitter).
What then? Sweet Anita does not want to give up: she is ready to do anything to bring about change. However, she didn’t know where to start. However, they are here to help if anyone has an idea (via Twitter).
