: Tumblr is great & all…
I can only imagine. I have some photos from months ago that still get reblogged and it vaguely annoys me… But nasty responses I haven’t experienced myself. I still thank you for being the eloquent voice of reason re: the SA bigots. Please stay!
Oh, no worries, I’m not actually going any where, I’m just rather miffed I keep logging in & I see more notifications about that than actual posts on my dash. I’m grateful that people are finding out & it’s going to help create even a modicum of change, but for every 25 or 50 likes or positive reblogs, the negative ones always seem to catch my attention & make me feel kinda shitty. I keep trying to tell myself not to take it personally, but my words & my opinion are being attacked (or so it feels like) by people who don’t know the entirety of my position/opinion/intention. That just gets a bit frustrating.
I keep asking myself, if I knew this would be the outcome, would I have scrapped the post altogether? I think I would, because I think it’s an issue that needs some addressing, so I wanted to speak out about it.
