Bonesandbehaviours (B&B) was a HBD forum (2013—2014) founded by two Neo-Nazi kooks from Anthroscape (another race realist forum), Clare Chesterton (as "Faintsmile1992") and Henry Stevens (as "fivepercenter"). The forum tried to present itself as a "serious anthropology discussion board". Of course this failed. In reality, it was little more than a re-branding of scientific racism in the Anthroscape-vein, with more obscene postings of a sexual nature. The short-lived forum was shut down.

History[edit]

Bonesandbehaviours was founded as a blog in April, 2013 and advertised at Anthroscape by Chesterton, posting as "Faintsmile1992".[1] A month after it was created as a forum and later advertised at Anthroscape in October as a "secret anthro forum, but only for serious anthro posters so as to avoid trolls etc."[2] No one seems to have been impressed. The moderator at Anthroscape (posting as "Crimson Guard") wrote in the same thread that among the few members of the B&B forum: "One is a Holocaust denier the other believes in Out of America" (the latter referring to the bizarre theory humans originated in the Americas). However, virtually none of Anthroscape members are themselves rational, most being hardcore bigots, including its moderator who is a far-right Catholic wingnut that doesn't accept evolution the way it is "commonly accepted by the academic community".[3]

After advertising unsuccessfully, a Twitter account was later set up by Chesterton to promote Bonesandbehaviours as an "anthropology forum".[4]

Content[edit]

Junk "race science"[edit]

According to the forum rules: "A reminder that this is not a forum for race denialism or for questioning the existence of racial differences themselves, and to do so may even result in a ban."[5] Much like Anthroscape, the forum quoted very outdated "race" texts such as Carleton Coon's The Races of Europe. There was also a "personal classify" typology section.

The founder(s) of the forum were apparently unaware like Humanphenotypes that this sort of stuff about "race types" has been obsolete for many decades.

Holocaust denial[edit]

See the main article on this topic: Holocaust denial

Bonesandbehaviours approved of Holocaust denial. The moderator of Bonesandbehaviours, Henry Stevens (as "fivepercenter") had posted the following at Anthroscape:

"Let me tell you the reason you cannot ever get a list of victims totally anywhere near 6 million. It is because that figure was pulled out of thin air, whole cloth. Prior to 1960, the Hollywood Jews floated a figure of 2 million, whispered in interviews by Jews claiming to be "just a Hungarian boy", Yul Brenner, and pukes of his ilk. The 6 million figure has a history all its own. It originated in 1960 with William Shire, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich. Shire was a newspaper reported stationed in Berlin during the war. He was the first to state the figure was 6 million and even had a source. The statement and source are given, as I recall, twice in the book. Shire's source, and only source, for the 6 million figure is the World Jewish Council, hardly an impartial body."[6]
