I figure since PZ Myers is too chickenshit to leave my comment up on his blog I cant be too careful (more on PZ soon) So while reading a blog on Stephanie Zvan's site I thought I would leave a comment there. Trouble is Stephanie isn't exactly my bff (ophelia benson is though, she LOVES me) So just in case I will leave my comment here and send her a link. Here is the link to the post Almost Diamonds
Your welcome for any meager traffic Stephanie.
Stephanie I wonder if you ever get tired of the way you have to "drama it up" in order to get a response out of people. Maybe if you didn't grasp onto every little thing and build it into a high school play you would get more respect from people at least.Did you really take Renee's comments to mean this-
"This idea that I should stop drinking, though–that’s toxic. So, hey, you were sexually assaulted. You should just stop living your life rather than cope with some distress. "
"I should be (figuratively) jailed. If I can’t pretend in every particular that it never happened, I should give up my life."
Really Stephanie? Come on are you really that dumb? I mean I can kinda understand playing the drama up when I called you a bitch. Which is clearly what you were doing. You see, I'm not dumb, I get it. The problem is you had a terrible thing happen to you and all this over dramatic crap takes from the message. Along with some serious mistakes, such as-
"Or do they teach that in counseling for sexual assault? I’m pretty sure they don’t, which makes the counseling comment flat out stupid in addition to being grossly inappropriately personal. Especially since what they would have done in counseling, if the counselors were good, was try to help me live as normal a life as possible, making the accommodations I needed. In fact, they would have suggested I do more or less exactly what I did, at least once I was of legal drinking age."
Yes, they do teach 'that' in counseling for sexual assault. I am sure you don't know because you never even tried to get help. The comment no matter how it was delivered was good advice. Many women think they can "just get over it" but they don't. They need help. You don't know if they would have told you to do exactly what you did.
The reality of the matter is both you and Renee should talk to a professional about your feelings on your abuse, no matter how 'ok' you feel. Not to be a total asshole but you really should be a bit more responsible before you start saying no one could or would have taught you about drinking because if a young person is reading then they could end up in the same place as you. You might want to include a phone number for anyone who can relate and would like to find some help or learn more. Like say this
Maybe you would have thought about doing that if you were not so caught up in trashing other people and milking drama.
You know Stephanie Al and I have discussed having you on ReapSowRadio and we think you may well be the one who can actually stand up and back your shit up. Watta you say? I promise I won't call you a bitch. I really would like to understand how you come to your conclusions. Besides if I am a dick it will be in public for all to see, right?
Sideline-Anthony K you are just toxic. Why don't you start your own blog instead of just leeching on others? I may be a jerk sometimes but I pick my battles and I have a reason, you are a stupid prick to people just because, Loser.
And the rest of you, wow. You are some cold fuckers. It really is too bad that many of you will one day find out what it is like to have a loved one in harms way with nothing you can do about it. I hope the shit you said here comes to mind. If any of you can say you already know what I'm talking about then shame on you. How can you claim to have compassion when talking shit about an abuse victim who's BF is having a health scare at least? And lastly why don't you all quit acting like you have psychic powers. The internet doesn't give you the ability to know everything about other people you've never met.Sorry. I admit I don't know jack shit about what any of you have going on in your heads and I don't wanna know cause it has got to be a twisted fucking place in there for you to say some of the shit I'm reading here.WTF?
