Okay, let’s be real, guys. Let’s be serious.
I’m a paranoid mofo.
I have issues with taking things too seriously and being really sensitive, and it has cost me friendships. This is a serious problem for me.
And YET I still think some of you are a bunch of whiny little bitches.
Just saying. Way to take some generic puns and a Justin Bieber joke way too seriously, Tumblr.
(Okay, I’ll stop posting about this now. You’re welcome.)
what we talk about when we talk about Tumblr
When telling a story, I was taught to be cautious in approaching a plot twist. My teachers told me never to go with the first thing I could think of. List ten things and one of those will be the right one.
Ben wakes up every day and finds more nonsense. He doesn’t know what to do, so he:
1 Posts a song, because music says more than he can ever say.
2 Looks through his favorites and hearts selectively.
3 Wonders where he went wrong but will never reach out.
4 Thinks every post will be his last.
5 Participates in a meme because they are fun and automatic.
6 Watches drama over some subject unfold and sees the groups split, and quietly sides with the quiet sides.
7 Shakes his head at those trying to up their freaky ante. We get it, you’re different, and edgy.
8 Unfollows more cool people who will never give him the time of day.
9 Realizes that you only get what you give.
10 Posts what he wants regardless of who reads it or cares.
No More Drama
Ok. So I’ve decided to do something drastic with all the ‘drama’ that has been occurring as of late on here. I’m growing some balls of steel, and any person who starts up or continues on any type of nasty or pointless parenting argument will be unfollowed by me immediately.
I’m all for an intelligent and respectful difference of opinion but that rarely is the case when it comes to this issue. I’m not the only one sick of reading about it. This also includes people that post ‘Stop posting the drama, get over it’ in reference to said drama.
I don’t want to unfollow people that I really like but I’m tired of seeing it. I don’t mind that I will be unfollwed in return. I’m tired of it being posted in replacement of photos and updates of your beautiful kids!
I’m also over seeing people post anonymous hate. Once or twice to defend yourself is fine, be it completely unnecessary to even respond (I am guilty of doing it myself) but if you post multiple hateful messages, you’re just asking for it because you are feeding the perpetrator the attention they crave and they will continue to do it. Expect an unfollow from me.
I’m not posting this to draw attention to myself or to try to be a major bitch. It’s nothing personal at all, and you are free to post what you like on your blog but I am also free to control what I read and that is not what I want to read on here anymore.
I hope everyone has a nice day.
The anonymous assholes who decided to take the time last night to tear down someone I really respect and admire, as an author and a person, probably don’t read my tumblr. If they do, then I’d appreciate it if you’d unfollow me right now because I don’t want to have anything to do with you.
And now I’m going to rant a lot about creators and feedback and it’s going to be incoherent, angry, and messy, so I’ll put it below a cut to spare you.
I’m over this shitty mother dash war, all the time it’s always some idiot posting one shitty opinion. Then everyone has a panic attack and needs to say something. I’m staying out of it all and keeping my opinions to myself.
I’m comfortable with my parenting decisions… The only reason people have to publicly vent their opinions and rag on others; are those clearly uncomfortable with the choices they have made.
Have a good day everyone, chill the fuck out. Go have a cup of fucking tea and some god damn chocolate cake. Stop wasting your time gunning down people on a website.
OMFG SHUT THE FUCK UP WITH THE TUMBLR DRAMA
IT’S A FUCKEN WEBSITE FOR BLOGGING NOT FOR FUCKING STARTING STUPID CHILDISH SHIT OVER THE FUCKING INTERNET. ALL OF YOU GUYS ARE SO FUCKING IMMATURE. AND ALL OF THIS SHIT IS FOR FAME AND ATTENTION RIGHT? STUPID SHIT MAN. IT’S PEOPLE WHO START TUMBLR DRAMA THAT FUCKING MAKES TUMBLR A SHITTY ASS WEBSITE BECAUSE EVERYONE GET’S INVOLVED. SO STOP. HONESTLY, IF YOU HAVE A FUCKEN PROBLEM WITH SOMEONE TELL THEM NOT THE WHOLE FUCKEN WORLD ABOUT IT.
EVERYONE NEEDS TO GROW THE FUCK UP.
Anatomy of Fandom Drama
1. An idiot posts something deliberately incendiary in the Wrong Tag on Tumblr.
WHY DOES ANYONE LIKE [X SHIP] LOLZ UR STUPID #[x ship] #[y ship 4eva] #[btw z character is so not gay you slash freaks]
2. Supporters of [x ship], instead of rolling their eyes at the drama-seeking child, reach for their swords.
[ten paragraph deconstruction of original post]
[glee thumbs up gif]
3. A voice of reason, uninvolved to the original discussion, suggests everyone calm the fuck down.
Don’t feed the troll, guys! Let it go!
4. The voice of reason is NOW THE ENEMY.
[ten paragraph deconstruction of perfidy]
[doctor who bless this post gif]
5. Rational fandom members want no part of the madness.
[conspicuous radio silence]
6. Except for that one fangirl who agrees with everything you say, no matter what.
[fifteen THIS!!! gifs]
7. It should be noted, by the way, that the little shit who started all this has gotten off scot-free.
(Fuck that guy.)
8. Reblogs reach 50. The arguments no longer thread. Friends begin to turn on one another.
I totally agree with all this, except [ten paragraph analysis of single scene]
Are you kidding? Canon states [twenty paragraph analysis of five second exchange within same scene], proving you are an idiot.
Dude, that has NOTHING to do with what I was originally saying to [other person], but THAT’S clearly [thirty paragraph analysis of eyesex within aforementioned five second exchange], so shut your lying mouth.
[kill it with fire gif]
9. Other fandoms become involved. They begin comparing the situation to their own fandoms. Chaos ensues. The only thing everyone agrees on is that the voice of reason is a dick.
10. All that is left is to flee the Tumblr tag and seek greener pastures until such a time as everything quiets down.
Quick! To the fluffy puppy picspams!
Back to this whole trans*/otherkin shit
Trans* otherkin exist. Some of them say these two things are completely different. Some of them say it can be pretty similar. So there is no consensus among those many say “should be the only ones allowed to talk about such things”. It probably depends both on how people experience their gender identity and their “species identity”.
I am cisgender, but I once explained my feelings about “being wolf” and so to a transexual blogger who, after the explanation, said “that sounds exactly like why I call myself a man”. Should I have said “shut up, you’re appropriating yourself”?
