Congratulations are in order to three children who no longer have to attend the close-minded, sex-negative Catholic school from which they were recently expelled because their mother has an OnlyFans account.

Crystal Jackson, a wife and mother of three from Sacramento, told NBC affiliate KCRA her children were asked to leave Sacred Heart Parish school over backlash related to Jackson’s OnlyFans page, which she started with her husband back in 2019. The couple initially launched the “Mrs. Poindexter” page to rekindle the spark in their 14-year marriage, and the account quickly ballooned in popularity. Jackson says she made $15,000 in her first month on the site alone, and now regularly pulls in more than $150,000 each month creating “mom next door” content, including pinup-style photos and “sexy stories.”

Not among the page’s growing fanbase? A community of angry moms at Jackson’s kids’ school. Speaking to U.K. tabloid the Sun earlier this month, the OnlyFans star said her account has been a source of controversy among the fellow moms at school who had been actively campaigning to have Jackson and her family ejected from the community.

“Someone came across my account, and suddenly I had moms from school texting me and leaving voice-mails saying I had to leave the school,” she told the Sun. “Some women from my area actually printed out pictures I posted on my OnlyFans and mailed them to the principal of my children’s school.” Jackson said she and her family were subjected to frequent harassment from other members of the school community who took issue with Jackson’s OnlyFans success: “Apparently, it was ‘disturbing, disgusting, horrifying,’ and ‘my children should be kicked out!’”

Last weekend, the angry mob of moms finally got their wish when Jackson received an email from the school informing her she and her children were no longer welcome. “Your apparent quest for high-profile controversy in support of your adult website is in direct conflict with what we hope to impart to our students and is directly opposed to the policies laid out in our Parent/Student Handbook. We therefore require that you find another school for your children and have no further association with ours,” read the email, per KCRA.

The incident is yet another example of women facing dire, untoward consequences for engaging with sex work. As more and more women have turned to OnlyFans amid the site’s pandemic-era boom, many have found the side hustle has jeopardized their career and personal lives thanks to rampant sex-negative, anti-sex-work sentiment that seems to have only increased as platforms like OnlyFans render sex work more accessible. Women have lost jobs, had their personal information leaked and now had their children’s education threatened, all because our society really, truly abhors when women exercise agency over their own sexuality.

This is a reality under which sex workers have always lived and worked, but the rise of OnlyFans among the mainstream population has brought the whorephobia and misogyny that has always existed at the heart of our society to the forefront, making it increasingly impossible to ignore.
