's blog post

anonymous asked:

Don't get me wrong, I love your dog and all of your pets, they're adorable and I liked seeing them. My point was that through passively scrolling down my dashboard today I'd seen it at least 10 times. It's your blog, you can post what you want, but if you're going to reblog something that many times in a day please don't put it in popular tags that people follow because it makes something that was cute into something upsetting and stressful, it's inconsiderate. Thank you for reading

(( OOC: I’m going to take a moment to address this.

Before you make an accusation, make sure it has a base. I did not reblog that photoset 10 times. I posted it once… if you happen to be following people that reblogged it from me, unfortunately I have no control over what they reblog… and you will end up seeing a puppy on your dash 10 times. 

Regardless… even if I had reblogged that post 10 times, there’s a simple solution to your problem. Use the .5 seconds it takes to scroll past it, and do so. 

There’s no reason why seeing a post about a puppy on your dash should ruin your day. That’s you making a personal decision to get upset over something that is a non issue.  

Furthermore, if you have a concern with another person’s posts, be careful with how you express it. The ask that I received from you yesterday was impolite and demanding, or should I say “upsetting and stressful”. 

I apologize for the blunt way I’m addressing this, I’ve had one hell of a month. )) 

This picture has got to be one of my all time favorite sketches of Yana’s: Ciel looking all forlorn (and also looking slightly pissed, maybe because his butler is off doing some task and is late getting back), sitting in his big chair, obviously missing his butler, comforting himself with 2 Big Sebby plushie dolls enfolding him on each side of his lap, and even the Sebastian version of the  robot vacuum cleaner that speaks like 100 phrases in Sebastian’s voice.  (Link to pic on Yana’s blog: tobosoofficial.tumblr.com/post/162157312025)

Meanwhile, in the new Tumblr Verizon regime


In 2014, Tumblr was on the front lines of the battle for net neutrality. The company stood alongside Amazon, Kickstarter, Etsy, Vimeo, Reddit, and Netflix during Battle for the Net’s day of action. Tumblr CEO David Karp was also part of a group of New York tech CEOs that met with then-FCC chairman Tom Wheeler in Brooklyn that summer, while the FCC was fielding public comment on new Title II rules. President Obama invited Karp to the White House to discuss various issues around public education, and in February 2015The Wall Street Journal reported that it was the influence of Karp and a small group of liberal tech CEOs that swayed Obama toward a philosophy of internet as public utility.

But three years later, as the battle for net neutrality heats up once again, Tumblr has been uncharacteristically silent. The last mention of net neutrality on Tumblr’s staff blog — whichfrequently posts about political issues from civil rights to climate change to gun control to student loan debt — was in June 2016. And Tumblr is not listed as a participating tech company for Battle for the Net’s next day of action, coming up in three weeks.

A representative for Battle for the Net told The Verge in an email, “Outreach for the day of action is very much an active and ongoing process… I wouldn’t read too much into who is and isn’t on the list so far.” Still, a rep for Tumblr declined to comment on whether the company would be participating, and AOL’s senior VP of brand communications Caroline Campbell responded to an inquiry about whether Tumblr would maintain its stance on net neutrality, writing “[It’s] just too early to answer your question.”

One reason for Karp and Tumblr’s silence? Last week Verizon completed its acquisition of Tumblr parent company Yahoo, kicking off the subsequent merger of Yahoo and AOL to create a new company called Oath. As one of the world’s largest ISPs, Verizon is notorious for challenging the principles of net neutrality — it sued the FCC in an effort to overturn net neutrality rules in 2011, and its general counsel Kathy Grillo published a note this Aprilcomplimenting new FCC chairman Ajit Pai’s plan to weaken telecommunication regulations.

Now, multiple sources tell The Verge that employees are concerned that Karp has been discouraged from speaking publicly on the issue, and one engineer conveyed that Karp told a group of engineers and engineering directors as much in a weekly meeting that took place shortly after SXSW. “Karp has talked about the net neutrality stuff internally, but won’t commit to supporting it externally anymore,” the engineer said. “[He] assures [us] that he is gonna keep trying to fight for the ability to fight for it publicly.” Karp did not respond to four emails asking for comment, and neither Yahoo nor Tumblr would speak about the matter on the record.

On the day Verizon’s Yahoo acquisition was completed, Tumblr was hit by a wave of layoffs. A number of current and former employees shared a post by social media industry commentator Andréa López entitled “Layoffs and Tumblr the Centipede.” In it, López theorizes, “In addition to the real life talented human beings impacted by these layoffs, the move is a warning and reminder — Tumblr is no longer in the protective purgatory of pre-Verizon Yahoo.” If Mayer’s Yahoo didn’t really know what it was doing with Tumblr, that meant Tumblr was free to do what it wanted. That extended to politics: Yahoo didn’t give Tumblr any official blessing or encouragement when it decided to become the tech industry’s fiercest net neutrality defender three years ago. Now things are a little bit stickier.

Bryan Irace, an engineering manager who worked at Tumblr from March 2012 to November 2015, explained Tumblr’s culture to The Verge in an email, writing, “We all [participated]. As with many other causes (e.g. SOPA/PIPA), [net neutrality] was a hugepart of the company culture. A free and open Internet was a prerequisite for Tumblr to grow from an idea in David’s head into the platform that it is today… During my tenure there, Tumblr never shied away from speaking out about causes that the team collectively believed in….

i keep seeing people drawing parody super buff versions of the guys and i wanted to join in on the fun so i drew buff Tom but it’s literally the most cursed image on my laptop.

my tablet stopped working the moment i finished. it’s some sort of divine punishment for unleashing this. im almost certain he’s going to come out the computer screen and kill me in my sleep

Just Awkward Tumblr Browsing Things

• When you check out someone’s blog via an old post of theirs that someone else recently reblogged and Tumblr makes you time travel back to OP’s blog at the time of the original posting and before you notice you end up liking a bunch of their posts from 3+ years ago

• When you check out someone’s blog and forget you aren’t on your dash anymore so you scroll/like for ages until you realize

• When you’re 2 hours into scrolling through someone’s tagged/xyz on mobile and you know you can’t leave or press the wrong button or you’ll lose your place

I made a thing

stop supporting guys-positivity

guys, i’ve said this before, stop supporting and/or recommending guys-positivity to trans men for positivity!!!! they (’they’ being both mods of this blog) believe misandry and transmisandry is real, it takes one search of their blog to find classic posts like this:

transmisandry and misandry isn’t and will never be real. trans men are not targeted for being men!! facing transphobia is just plain old transphobia. not to mention trans women cannot oppress trans men, which transmisandry implies.

i’d also like to add that they’re also obviously anti-sj(w) and support steven-universe-official

posts (one, two) as two why s-u-o is a transmisogynistic and pedophilic piece of shit

i’ve called them out before here, but people are STILL reblogging their posts about trans positivity!! i’m tired of this blog being one of the faces of trans positivity for trans men and transmasc people. you CANNOT claim to support trans people while only caring about trans men and then throwing trans women under the bus. block them, stop reblogging them, and find other transmasc positivity blogs to support, enough of this trash.

2nd Annual Kuroshitsuji Positivity Day

March 20th is Kuroshitsuji Positivity Day, and I hope that everyone has a chance to join in. So, here’s some of the plans so far.

Send a note to your favorite blog(s).

Let people know that you like their blogs. You can do so anonymously or not. A little note can really brighten up a person’s day.

Post about favorite blog(s).

Make a post with one or more of your favorite blogs and say why you like those. Please make sure that the people are okay with being tagged or recognized before doing so, however, so no one is uncomfortable.

Post about favorite character, arc, chapter, etc.

This one is fairly straight forward. Whatever you like about the series - post it! This is all about what makes us happy or what we love.

You can also post about favorite fan fiction or art, but do not post or repost anyone’s work without permission. Recognizing artists, writers, and roleplayers are great things to do as well.

When posting, just use the tag Positive Kuro.  I’m also open to any suggestions. You aren’t limited to just posting about those things. Just make posts about something you find positive within the fandom.

Have a lovely day everyone and hope it’s a great positivity day!
