dunno what else to tag this as to blacklist for people!

HOW TO HAVE A GREAT TUMBLR TIME and not be an ass

Alright gang, I have been on tumblr a LONG time (six years) and as a newbie to the Voltron fandom I have read quite a few posts about ship wars and ‘paedophilia’ claims. Sadly, this is not new, happens in many a fandom. Here is a handy guide on how to avoid the haters (and not be a hater yourself).

Writing this up because I am a veteran tumblr user, if you will. And I know that some of the youngins might appreciate the advice.

How to have a good Tumblr time!

Number one: Use your blacklists. I cannot stress this enough. One particular person crapping all over your ship? Blacklist their name. You don’t like a particular ship, BLACKLIST IT. Keep your dash a happy place for you.

Number two: If people are crapping on your writing/artwork/creative posts, block them. Easy as that. If it’s anonymous, I’m pretty sure that you can also block that. If all else fails, turn off anon for a while. It doesn’t mean that the haters have won. It means that you’re taking care of yourself. Also, try not to take what they say personally. I know it’s hard but you are contributing to fandom and doing a great job of it! You make so many more people happy then people you piss off by writing/drawing/creative outlet-ing(?) your ship.

Number three: If you get an anonymous hate message on tumblr, IGNORE IT. People do it to get attention and I dunno why, it makes them feel better somehow??? I don’t know. Ignore it. Don’t answer. No point, won’t help you and it certainly won’t change their mind. It’s just going to get you worked up. Also you answering won’t mean that you can shut them down with your words. They don’t care. They just want to see you get riled up. Don’t give them the satisfaction. 

Number four: Remember that you are allowed to ship your ship. One, they are fictional so….yeah. And two, ship whatever makes you happy.

Number five: If all else fails, stay out of the tags. Keep your beautiful followers who make you happy and use your tumblr power to continue to draw/write/creative outlet to your heart’s content. No one has the right to make your tumblr experience a bad one.

Number six: SPREAD POSITIVITY. Get a hate message? Ignore it and write a post about how much you love your ship! Write a fic, draw some art, do other stuff or just lurk and reblog your ship! Whatever you need to. Kudos some fics, reblog some artwork. Spread love, not hate.

Remember kids, BLOCK everyone and IGNORE people who spread negativity. You don’t need that sort of crap in your life. Trust me, once I culled and blocked, life became so much better.

How to not be a hater in FOUR HANDY STEPS

Number one: Don’t be that person who tags your hate. Come on. We’re all human here. People have feelings. Feelings can be hurt. What do you gain from hurting people’s feelings. Really. Come on. Don’t like it? Don’t go into the tags. Don’t tag your negative posts about another ship. Keep it in your own ship tag if need be (if you’re comparing but even then…no need).

Number two: Just because you have an opinion that X ship is crap because of whatever reason, it doesn’t mean that you have to state your opinion. Freedom of speech is a thing (in America, I dunno I’m not from there) but it doesn’t make you immune from people calling you out on your crap. If you feel like you HAVE to put your opinion out there for whatever reason, again, don’t tag it. Saying ‘I CAN SAY WHAT I WANT, LOL WHATEVER’ does not make you cool.  

Number three: Here is a RADICAL NOTION. Wait for it. You can write about how much you love your ship….WITHOUT crapping all over another ship. I know. It’s crazy.

Number four: Don’t actively seek out people and hate on them. What are you? Five?

That’s all from me. Feel free to message me if you need. Just know that if it’s hate, I am not going to respond.

@memekeymouse the NSFW stuff appearing even on safe-search, that’s Tumblr’s problem.
It’s not the artists. Because they’ve tagged it as NSFW (yes I went back and tagged most of them as such since you dont wish to see it..). And Tumblr for some reason still shows them. You should be directing this towards Tumblr, not artists who draw yaoi and Mpreg. Also Im not drawing these because of a fetish. Mpreg is not a fetish. Its a thing thats literally IN japan. Same goes for yoai.. A uke cuter and submissive one and a seme is the more dominate one in the relationship. I can name a few shippings that have all of what you’re trying to go against me in it.


Meta Knight X Kirby
Shadow X Sonic
Mario X Luigi (yes people ship that..dunno why…)

Villager X Toon Link
Edgeworth X Phoenix
Zero X Megaman
Descole X Layton
Layton X Luke
Ness X Lucas
Claus X Ninten
Red X Blue (Pokemon)
Gary X Ash
Yurii and his seme (forgot his name but its from Yurii on ice)
Ganon X Link
Dark Link X Link
Chara X Frisk (can be identified as any gender but it still counts)
Vegeta X Goku
Trunks X Goten Broly X Trunks

Need I go on? Because there is a ton more.

“Yaoi” in of itself is NOT pornographic (in some cases there is but mostly there isnt). It’s simply just what gay relationships in manga/anime are called. If you’re going to be bashing people for having ships and calling it what its SUPPOSED to be called in anime, you shouldn’t be allowed to have ships yourself. You need to realise that YAOI, UKES, SEMES, AND MPREG ARE NOT FETISHES! And its NOT illegal! However, you act like Im committing murder. So why does that make such a big issue with you?? And SIN can literally be ANYTHING. Look i get where you’re coming from. But you had no damn right to post any of that stuff! You didn’t even try to come to me nicely! My drawings aren’t the problem. It’s certain people in fandoms. Like you.
And as for anything related to sin, it happens in every fandom. EVERY. FANDOM. Nobody said that gay ships were “sinful”. It refers to NSFW or suggestive content. Yaoi LITERALLY MEANS GAY. AND YURI MEANS LESBIAN. REGARDLESS OF WHETHER IT’S SEXUAL OR NOT! If anybody is in the wrong, it’s you. I’m not physically harming anybody. I’m not insulting anyone. I know you didnt mean to hurt me but you did. Once again. You could’ve just told me privately.. And nicely that i had offended you. But no. You decided to make me look like the bad guy here! You judged me by my art first and not me as a person! Im literally one of the nicest people that you will ever meet…!! I have no hatred towards you, because I’m not like that. I just can’t bring myself to hate anybody. But that doesn’t mean that I will tolerate hurtful comments.
And the last time I had checked, this was my blog. Not yours. I don’t just go around telling people what to post on their blog or anything. And on the subject of MPreg, how does that automatically mean that I hate women and trans? happen to be female.
I love all genders equally, and non-binary people. Saying that I hate women and trans people just because I draw something related to Mpreg makes absolutely no sense. So apparently everyone who is okay with mpreg hates them right? We don’t.
Anyways, everyone. Regardless of what others think of what you like or don’t like, don’t listen to them. Especially if they’re hurtful. So please, don’t complain about something that isn’t that big of a problem. Especially here. And most people here ARE in fact okay with yoai, ukes, semes, and mpreg. Like @livewiregoth @asksecurityofficermitchellandco @bluehatchingrooster @thecurseddoll and many more. As a side note, that Skype screenshot that you were talking about was a crack roleplay. That means it’s used for HUMOUR. There’s something called tag blacklisting, so you won’t have to see anything with certain tags. I have the same right to ship and draw what I please just as you and everyone else do, regardless of what anyone says. If you dont like it then oh well. Maybe you can take something from this and not post hurtful things like that again.


Also. @mickeyofficialtwitteraccount had wanted to say this to you for a while now.

“Listen here ya lil shit; its none of your business what someone else does on their blog. Oh, your worried about offending gay people? I’m only attracted to people who identify as female in any way and I myself am a female, but it doesn’t offend me. Its just a tag. There’s no need to attack someone over this. You should be ashamed of yourself! You didn’t even try asking nicely first!”


Also if I receive anon hate for this. There are many ways for me to deal with a coward hiding behind a mask…

A blog to Block but a PSA too.

Proof B-I-D (BillDip-is-Dead) Goes into the BillDip tag just to reblog art not meant for them, nor directed at them, just to either insult it or trying to start something/having more of something to complain about, instead of making their own posts to just vent or create their own topics. 

It’s bad enough that they are CONSTANTLY searching the BillDip tag, even the Reylo tag on occasions trying to start something, even though they SHOULDN’T be in there if they hated the ship so much. 

Also @anti-anti-billdip @aboutthatshippingdiscourse @theshipscourse This should be the last post. At least, this will only be one contribution of my own, through remembrance of catching the blog in the tag before I just started flagging posts. This just should go around, because their reblogs are never found for some reason. 

Now before anything else because I don’t think people read all the way to the bottom. Don’t engage or go after this blog. They may be older than me but just don’t do it because I will fucking shit if you do. 
Just block them because even after this, I believe they’ll insist to continue to seek out the ship tags.

This mostly goes for BillDip, Reylo and maybe even Sebaciel shippers (I guess since that’s what they talk about most but really, any shipper if they want to is fine.)

So I think I’ve figured something out. I think I experience cognitive empathy, but not emotional or compassionate empathy. So like, I understand why people feel the way they feel, but I don’t feel what they feel and I don’t feel compelled to help, if that makes sense?
