A Study in White Male Privilege and Internet Stupidity
Yesterday, Neill Le Roux, a white South African photographer, decided to message bomb me with the above, in defense of another white male who had harassed and cost me thousands of dollars due to lying about a bed bug infested apartment. Neill’s defense of said middle class white dude, Matthew Swaye, who lives in low income housing and makes a profit off of it, include racism (*uses his best black girl voice impersonation*), misogyny (cat lady references of course), my weight (“plump” according to him, and my “sorry large ass” - wow keeping it original I see…please note this person has never seen me in person), etc. Way to make a statement Neill. Remember, this guy is in his 50’s now, writing like a teenage girl, but with a whole lot of white male privilege. He doesn’t even have the BALLS to allow me to respond, he just deletes me after his message. Note - this was in the middle of me telling him to stop defending some male he never met when I personally had had a harrowing, near criminal experience with Swaye. I stand behind EVERYTHING I write, online and in email, because as a Senior Systems Admin and Networking Tech, I know nothing is private. You do who you are in public AND in private. There is no “irony zone” with me where racism or misogyny flies as funny or an in-joke. Fuck your white privilege, dude, fuck your tacky lack of sense, and definitely fuck your mediocre photography.

Here’s his facebook page - enjoy: http://www.facebook.com/neill.leroux
Funny thing (and of course totally predictable) - he’s been trolling on my page since 2009, fawning over things I post, though less said since I made it known I have a boyfriend. Awww poor Neill, he’s sad cause I no longer think his irrelevant opinions matter (not that they ever did). And so going teenage mean girl is his exit strategy - ooh and please do send Matthew Swaye my comments on his sleazy behavior and now sudden internet fame as an “activist”. Man, spare me. See, peeps, white male privilege is real and rather pathetic. I’m so glad to see its death rattle in person…
*hums “i’m every woman” while booty shaking…
It’s good to be me…
