I read Razing Ruth.  I've wondered whether or not she is real from time to time as well, particularly when her sister had the baby that was adopted by the gay couple.  It seemed a real stretch to me that a girl who had recently left an incredibly restrictive and conservative religious environment would let a gay couple adopt her baby, but Ruth did say that her sister wanted a life for her daughter that was completely opposite what they had experienced. 

A lot of us have rather tumultuous lives during adolescence and early adulthood.  Ruth seems very open in the fact that she has been at a real disadvantage socially because of her history, so I can understand why she's had so many bumps.  Ruth is a SOMI in my opinion because I think her story is a unique one and because she seems so earnest, but I do maintain a healthy amount of skepticism about her situation overall.

What does SOMI mean?

 

I believe she is almost 30.

 

I am worried I am being mislead by her story. :(

SOMI is Stay On My Internets. So SOMI = the opposite of GOMI.

Good lord this is awful.

Firstly any blog with a donate button right at the top should be avoided at all costs, a big red flashing light should nee naw nee naw nee naw as soon as you land on a page like that.

Whoever this person is (and I don't want to know) and whatever has happened to them (again I don't care to know) is scamming people out of money – as simple as that.

"Oh poor me, I'm so unhappy and I'm so sick" drool

 

You're still f**king breathing love, get over yourself and GET OFF MY INTERNETS!!!!!

You are love, move away from the computer and forget all about Ruth (or whatever his/her/their name is)!

Wait, so you didn't take the time to read even a little bit of the blog and you're writing it off as a scam? I'm not saying that Ruth is 100% legit because I'm definitely suspicious but to immediately call her a scammer without even learning anything about her or the blog is pretty irresponsible.

I've been reading her for some time.  I've always been suspicious but now I feel like she isn't even trying to be discreet about scamming people.  Her story may be true, but she got what she wanted once and now she is running with it.

I've wondered if she hasn't been embellishing her story at times as well.

Ummmmm it doesn't take a rocket scientist.  You only have to read the first page of posts to see that this is a professional pan-handler at work and the donate button at the top of the page is kind of a giveaway.

Thank you OP for bringing this blog up.

I discovered RR a couple of weeks ago and found her story interesting, but I feel somewhat sceptical about all the woe-is-me stuff … I feel bad for doubting, but there's no way I would be donating to Ruth. I have a weird gut-feeling about the person behind the blog.

I look forward to hearing others opinions.

Has anyone read her most recent blog post. It is titled "A plea."

 

She wrote about some lady coming to her job looking for her.

 

I also agree, she is "milking" the "oooo wooo it's me." Just my opinion…

 

Wow, I have been reading her blog for years and until recently believed everything she wrote.
