//hey guys, it’s vi and i would just like to really quickly address something about my blog that i’m sure you guys have noticed and might be a little confused about; and that it WHY I HAVE MY ANONYMOUS MESSAGES TURNED OFF. before you guys freak out and think it’s bc i have been receiving hate or something i’d like to clear up that is not the case and i’d just sorta like to explain it a little bit. (i’ve actually only received anon hate but it wasn’t really anon bc i knew exactly who it was lmao aren’t ip addresses a bitch?)
so. i have anonymous messages turned off, and before anyone asks, no i will never turn anonymous on. here’s why:
recently i have noticed tumblr becoming a more and more toxic environment across multitudes of fandoms and really just in the tumblr rp community as a whole. i’ve noticed more and more anon hate being sent– and like this shit didn’t happen NEARLY as much as it does now just a year ago. i’m not sure what in tumblr changed or really why it’s taken the turn it has, but regardless, i do not view the community as a completely safe place anymore. that’s not to say all anons are bad, quite the opposite in fact, i see the majority of anonymous messages are actually quite positive. i don’t want people thinking i think all anonymous messages are bad or that anyone who is afraid to show their face is evil or blah blah blah. that’s not what i’m saying.
what i am saying, is i am not personally interested in anything anyone has to say that they cannot say face to face with me. that’s it. i know some people are very shy, and i’m really sorry that that is the case, but lately tumblr has become too much of a game of he said she said, and i’m not interested in playing. IF YOU WANT TO SAY SOMETHING TO ME AND YOU DON’T WANT IT TO BE PUBLIC, please just message me on your account and clarify it is a private message, that’s completely fine. i have no problem with that. but i don’t believe in people speaking to me from behind a grey face. simple as that.
ALSO; IF YOU HAVE BEEN RECEIVING HATE, I URGE YOU TO TURN ANON OFF. PLEASE TAKE CARE OF YOURSELVES.
Like, the new direction joke? My brother just made that, at the same time he conflated Zayn leaving with the band break-up. It’s been done to death. And I can almost guarantee “became his own man” will be the opposite.
I have zero good feelings. Pretty pictures of Louis come by the hundreds, they’re really not enough to get me excited. I know the fandom wants to celebrate happy things, but I really don’t think this qualifies. Going through archives of his photos would give me the same happy feelings without the negative consequences.
