college professors on tumblr

We need to talk about the Teachers on tumblr...

We are here for support. We are here because some people don’t understand what we are going through. We don’t call out teachers by their names, we don’t post pictures, we don’t post anything that would link our teachers to this blog.

Some of us are in college. Some of us have these feelings and are perfectly capable of going after their TC without any repercussions.

Some of us have went after our TC and it worked.

Some of us have went after our TC and it backfired.

Some of us got the “I will wait until you graduate so we can be together”

Some of us have an age difference of 5 years. Some of us have an age difference of 30 years. No matter the age difference we can’t help who we love.

There are famous people who have age differences greater than us. In Ancient Greece, which we wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for them, married their girls off at the age of 12.

We are not wrong to have these feelings. If we don’t act on them when we are under age we aren’t harming anyone.

It is no ones business who we have feelings for. It is no ones business who we are in love with.
It is no ones business how we deal with these feelings.

The teachers on tumblr need to understand this and need to let us be. We don’t attack them so why are they attacking us? Why are they making us feel bad for how we feel?

I've been avoidingTumblr for a while now because of all these people who think it's alright to bash on white people. It's insane how accepted it is on this website, it's sad how liberal blacks have become. And don't get me stated on self hating sjw whites. 🙄

Oh, I know. I feel like if this keeps up white people will be the new minority. Like if this attitude progresses for many years. The scary thing is how it’s transferring from Tumblr to college campus’ and liberal professors are shoving their rhetoric down the students’ throats. & those people are the worst. Apologizing for being white is absolutely ridiculous. 

Teacher Stiles - Teacher Derek

Stiles is a University Lecturer/Counsellor who’s sick of hearing about the new Lecturer (Derek) who all his students seem to have developed crushes on. Stiles smokes and Derek owns an Utonagan.

For two years, Stiles had very much enjoyed his position as Student Psychologist at his alma mater. The pay was all right, he liked the students who came to see him, and his work was challenging and diverse– or so it used to be, before Professor Hale came along. AU in which student psychologist Stiles has to deal with all the students crushing on the elusive and infuriating Professor Hale.

Recently, I read this article title ‘I’m A Liberal Professor, and My Liberal Students Terrify Me’ (http://www.vox.com/2015/6/3/8706323/college-professor-afraid)

It seems to me that this Tumblr-esque brand of thinking doesn’t just exist on far left feminist blogs anymore, but is now making its way into everyday life offline. I’m seeing more and more of my peers adopting this kind of ridiculous political correctness and paranoid 'everything is out to get me’ that seems more like a new age McCarthyism. 

This mentality is making it difficult to have any meaningful discussions about our society without someone screaming 'THAT’S RACIST, SEXIST, ABLEIST, AND (insert here)PHOBIC’. People, especially those of younger generations, are losing that sense of objectivity necessary to form solid opinions and arguments, and everyone is becoming more concerned with not offending others rather than thinking critically about solutions to better ourselves and our communities.

The reality is, you will get your toes stomped on. Talking about things like racism and politics does get personal because it affects our daily life, but no one said the road to social progress would be easy or enjoyable–it takes work. When so many people act like this, it becomes hard to take societal problems like racism, feminism and lgbt causes seriously anymore because much of what people have to say is so ridiculous and nonsensical that it begins to look like a joke. 

Like the Ferguson case and the recent Baltimore riots, I wasn’t angry, but rather dismissive towards the whole thing because of this new age McCarthy rhetoric that’s turning me and a lot of people off to social justice (or desensitizing, if you want to put it that way) AND I’M BLACK. Every time I see an article about #blacklivesmatter or some feminist issue, I always seen to catch myself rolling my eyes, even though I do want a better, more equal society for everyone. 

tl;dr: This new Tumblr McCarthyism is destroying any real chance we have at discussing and achieving actual social justice.

How a simplistic, unworkable, and ultimately stifling conception of social justice took over the American college campus.

This is you, Tumblr. It’s not about saying bullshit about growing thicker skin or ignoring actual abuses…It’s about allowing emotion to fuel you’re every decision, and take things to extremes just because you felt slighted in the smallest respects. 

Stand up for yourself and take charge when you have to, but not over every little thing.

And please read the article before you reblog, looking for an army to fight for you.
