A mother in Florida, who spent five years volunteering at her kids' elementary school, was banned last month because she has an OnlyFans page. Victoria Triece told reporters that a "concerned parent" anonymously alerted the school's staff about her pay-to-access account on OnlyFans, a subscription platform that recently gained traction majorly due to its user-generated adult content. "Nobody has the right to judge what other people do for a living," said the 30-year-old mother, who cannot understand why she is being treated this way for something which is legal in the country. "I feel judged, and so isolated," she added according to WESH.
Triece, whose children are aged 5 and 10, has been dedicated to her children right from the start. She loves volunteering at their school, Sand Lake Elementary in Orange County, as this allows her to spend some quality time with her kids. In the past, she has helped plan class parties for both her children's grades. Triece has even spent time assisting during lab assignments for her older son’s class. But on October 13, she was informed about her dismissal from the Orange County Public Schools’ ADDition volunteer program because some parent was uncomfortable with the idea of sex work.
This mom never should have been banned from volunteering at a school because she has a presence on OnlyFans — is this the 1950s?— Rep. Anna V. Eskamani 🔨 (@AnnaForFlorida) November 1, 2021
Her work isn’t illegal, but she’s being shamed for it and way too many people are. https://t.co/THcsRF3z7T
Sex work is work and is no longer taboo. Just because Triece does sex work it doesn't mean that she's not a loving mom who safely and responsibly volunteers her time at the school. Think about it, there are many people who work has risky professions like law enforcement, construction, and mining. Now that doesn't mean they would be irresponsible enough to hand little kids dangerous power tools or weapons to play with right? So why is it so obvious for these people and not for sex workers?
There was another interesting point that one of Triece's lawyers brought up about OnlyFans being a paid service that can only be accessed by adults. "She [Triece] understands that there’s going to be a percentage of parents who are going to be get up into their moral arms and wag their discriminating finger at her and say, 'We don’t want you around our children. Well, they wouldn’t have known about it because she kept it away from the children. You can’t access her unless you’re an adult," explained Mark NeJame while speaking with Orlando Sentinel.
"It affected a parent who went and paid to see my content, but then they had to go send in these photos of me to the school and make me not be allowed to be around children anymore, which I’ve done and dedicated my life to for pretty much five years," said Triece who is planning to sue the school district for $1 million. Triece's lawyers also noted that she never received any official documentation that cited a reason for her removal from the volunteer program.
Per the guidelines of ADDition volunteers, volunteers need to pass a drug test and background check in order to get into the program and Triece has been doing both. It does not explicitly mention what volunteers can and cannot do when they are not on campus. Despite this, Triece was put in a tough spot. "I don’t know who was told what I do. And now I’m supposed to walk into the building and I don’t know what was said to my son’s teacher … I don’t know what’s been said about me to anyone at that school,” she added. Thankfully, Triece - who has been on OnlyFans for two years, has since received support from mant parents at the school.
"One minute of my job a day is not my whole life, it's not my life of being a mom or being a parent," she said added, "I think everybody's just floored because they're like, 'We know you, we know who you are.'" According to WFLA, Triece also claimed that school officials contacted her and after hearing about the lawsuit. Apparently, they informed her that she could come on field trips but that she could only chaperone her kids.
