Introduction Some of you may have heard of Barrett Vs Rosenthal. I'm Rosenthal. After 7 long, expensive years of litigation, I recently prevailed in a California Supreme Court Decision which protects web posters from being sued for reposting the words of another. I quote from The Matrix: "Fate, it seems, is not without a touch of Irony." While suing me for libel (& losing) ... the plaintiffs and their public relations connections have waged massive smear campaigns of monumental proportions against me and the other defendants.
Interests Thanks for your interest in my interests! I am the Director of the Humantics Foundation ~ an advocacy group for women harmed by breast implants. I have been a woman's health advocate for several decades. In the 1970's, I was on a small team of women who created the first woman's shelter in our county. In 1995, I had several conversations with women with serious breast implant related health problems. As I began to research on the internet (far less wild in those days), I discovered an enormous cover-up of the dangers and realized there was no online support system. I created the first newsgroup, alt.support.breast-implant in November, 1995 on usenet ... and the next 12 years proved to be an E Ticket Ride! Speaking out on the dangers of something so desirable, so profitable, so well-funded, so controversial and so personal, made me a target for industry voices. I have been blessed to have been a free spirit and a world traveler for decades. Despite my opposition claiming I am "in exile, " I travel the world freely and con mucho gusto.
