I know that readers of this blog probably think that I am a little odd with this obsession over Steph at Steph’s Blog and to be honest I did start to think that maybe it was me and that I was just a little sad. So imagine my surprise tonight when I was reading her latest, quite frankly bizarre, post on racism and interracial relationships and finding lots of information to correct her and point out where she is blatantly wrong, when I noticed another poster disagreeing with her!
So I settled back and watched the weird goings on at Steph’s blog! I admit I was pleased when I saw that someone else had dared to disagree with her and I will post his comment here in picture form as I am sure that by tomorrow that post will have disappeared.
I thought that was great but on Steph’s Blog her word is law, so it was also suicidal. I took a screenshot because I knew that his post wouldn’t be there long.
That picture is his actual post but within an hour it had been altered, that is how it started with me too, unfortunately I didn’t get a screenshot of the first edit, she removed some of the content and branded his post inaccurate!
It was gratifying to know that it wasn’t just me that she did that to other people too! The screenshot of the later edit is below. She then replied, repeating her earlier points and giving a link to the census, all very normal you might think.
It is from this point that things get a little odd. She then decides to rename the person who corrected her, calling him Gareth. She removed the link to the man’s site on Black History, and replaced it with one that linked to Wikipedia. Presumably this was an attempt to make him seem less credible to her other readers? This altered post is again recreated below:
At this point even I was amazed at the lengths she seemed to be going to to make sure that she appeared to be right. Sadly either Ignatius hadn’t had chance to reply or he’d been banned, either way it was the last that Steph was going to have from him. Her final move then was to alter her own comment to belittle him further and of course he had no chance of defending himself.
Whilst I was a little relieved that it wasn’t just me that Steph goes mental at, I actually felt quite sorry for this commenter. He was clearly black and was offended by her post yet she made him look a fool, called him a half-wit and a troll and claimed that his facts were wrong. Here was a post about race, but when a person of race responded, she banned him! I felt obliged to stick up for him, but of course I am banned too!
This little episode aside I was amazed at both the content and tone of this post. Even I, not exactly the most PC of people, was offended by this statement:
I wouldn’t date a black man because I’m not attracted to them – and that’s probably true for most white women
What? How can she make such a sweeping statement and generalisation. She doesn’t find black men attractive, what all black men? Has she met them all? She says that she would never date a black man as they are unattractive, but somehow thinks that it isn’t racist? I could never and would never say the same thing about black women. Obviously some are less attractive than others, as with white women, but there will always be those that I would say were attractive, that is life, everyone is different. Her statement is clearly racist, she must be making the assumption that all black men are unattractive based on the fact that they are black, that Will Smith and Trevor Philips are both equally unattractive as they are both black as she cannot possibly know that she’d never meet a black man that is attractive.
She then goes on to say that most white women also find black men unattractive! As if because it is her opinion and she is a white woman, they must all think alike!
The most bizarre thing of all is that post takes the point that America thinks that it is a tolerant country when really it isn’t, Steph should look in the mirror as American isn’t the only thing that thinks that it is tolerant but clearly is not.
EDIT: Now she is claiming that everyone that has disagreed with her is the same person!
btw you used the same IP adresses as Charlie, Ewan Rose, Jack, Doug, etc.
I have seen Ewan comment on her site before, not sure who the others are, probably before I started reading it.
My IP address is dynamic so I can’t be using the same one every day, it is highly unlikely that someone else would get my old IP address and then post on Steph’s blog. However I think I know what she is getting at.
Steph, type the address in the resolve IP address at this site:- http://www.webyield.net/domainquery.html
If what comes up doesn’t say CUST at some point then the address that you are receiving is of a Proxy Server. If you still don’t believe me just Google the result.
If that is how she is banning me then she is probably banning anyone with the same ISP as me in Manchester, Nottingham and several other cities that my ISP has proxy servers in! D’oh!
