exposed celebrities

Honestly I hate this culture we’ve created on this website where we attack public figures for saying or doing the wrong thing even when they don’t mean to. This leaves no room for error or learning, only room for “perfection” in the eyes of online bloggers. The attempts to “expose” celebrities for their problematic tendencies is annoying and uncalled for. I’m not saying we should defend ACTUALLY racist, homophobic, or otherwise bigoted people. I’m just saying that if we call everything offensive and problematic, we lose sight of what is actually offensive and problematic. Instead of educating people, we’re bullying them and saying it is their fault for not being aware. This website is so annoying and no matter how hard I try to get away from people like this, I always end up seeing them on my dash. Think critically. What is actually offensive. What actually bothers you, not the person you want tumblr to think you are?
