I’m actually so sick of tumblr and that’s one of the reasons I’ve been so absent. Every idea I have for this blog can be twisted into something ~problematic~ because literally everything is fricken problematic now.
*Shares information about veganism*
You’re ableist! Some people can’t go vegan and so talking about being vegan is ableist! You’re just a privileged, white vegan! Fuck off!
*Shares information about diabetes and how to potentially prevent or reverse it*
Your post made me feel bad because that specific route didn’t work for me! You should never ever talk about something you haven’t experienced! Even if it could potentially help people! Shut the fuck up!
Like fuck man eventually you just get sick of the constant messages telling you you’re a shit person and to fuck off and die like this shit doesn’t happen on any other platform. No one acts like this in real life! It’s absolutely ridiculous! I post a video about diabetes and I have like 20 people telling me to fuck off and shut the fuck up, are you kidding me? This is why motherfuckers end up like laci green. And no I’m not comparing myself to her I still hold all of my beliefs very firmly no one will change that. I stand against racism and sexism and homophobia, etc. Like it’s walking on egg shells around here you literally can’t say anything without getting attacked about it. And no I’m not talking about “oh we should be able to use the n word” I’m just talking about letting people BREATHE. I swear some people sit at the computer refreshing, waiting for something to fucking criticize like do you ever get tired of that? “Oh this person said the word stupid and that’s now a slur because I said it was so you’re a terrible person you should die.” What the shit? You all need to smoke some fucking weed and chill or something like I almost give you props for being always fuckin ready to go, ready to argue, the tiniest minuscule little misstep and you are fucking ON that shit in 0.2 seconds, reciting all of the reasons I should kill myself tonight.
I’m a human being. There have been times where I’ve legitimately messed up and I’ve apologized and learned from those times. But even then. I’ve seen so many people mess up on Tumblr and everyone just fucking attacks them. And don’t give me that bull shit of “well i shouldn’t have to educate people on their problematic behaviour” then don’t!! Scroll past! If you don’t have anything nice or even borderline decent to say then don’t say anything! If someone has genuinely messed up out of a place of being misinformed, they don’t deserve a million messages telling them they’re horrible. This is not how normal people interact in real life. If I hear someone say faggot for example, not against a gay person but y’know they just use the word, I don’t flip the fuck out and write this person off forever. I simply say oh hey that’s not a good word to say could you maybe not? And their response? 9/10 they’ll say “oh I’m sorry I won’t say that anymore. I didn’t mean it in a bad way I’m sorry!” And there you go. Then you move on with your life. But if you go in on this person and tell them how horrible they are, all that’s happening is you’re angry, they’re angry and no one learned anything. And no it’s not your responsibility to educate them but it’s also not okay to tear people to shreds like that either. I feel like it’s just a power move sometimes. You wanna feel like you’re the smartest, least problematic person so you can sit all high and mighty and judge everyone else for any small thing. You’ve never done anything problematic before? Not a chance buddy. We all have so idk why you think you’re something special to be calling people out? We’re all just human.
Anyways the main point of this, and trust me I know it doesn’t seem like it, is that everyone should respect and love eachother. Look at eachother with compassion. Be understanding. Just basically be a good person. And if you can’t handle that, then log off of your computer and just don’t interact with people until you can learn some basic social skills.
And I’m ready for the angry messages and comments so fuckin bring em. You all know I’m open to criticism. As long as you’re not swearing at me and just being a jerk then I’ll straight up shut you out. But I’m not silencing myself anymore for fear of what people on tumblr are going to say. If I want to talk about veganism, I will! If I want to talk about anything, I will! I don’t care anymore. So it’ll be all real me from now on and anyone with a problem, feel free to unfollow or block me or whatever your heart desires. This is my blog where I get to be me. And no I’m not switching up any of my beliefs I want to make that very clear. I am still the same person I’m just not filtering myself anymore but that doesn’t mean I’m going to become some anti political correctness loser. I still believe in listening to people who’ve experienced things first hand such as racism. I still understand that in some cases I’m coming from a place of privilege. I still understand basic respect for others so don’t get it twisted. I hope that makes sense. I’m just going to be thinking for myself more often and not taking what people on tumblr say as some holy scripture on how to behave. So yeah! Send your messages! Do what you gotta do.
