are you wanting people to forgive Hash?
hey nonnie ! this is a personal question each person can only answer for themselves. i don’t feel qualified to answer for anybody. in fact, i’d go further & say no one should be answering for anyone else. my post was not about Hash alone, but the nature of tumblr culture. the fact that if anyone did want to forgive him or believe in change, they’d be shot down, judged, possibly harassed. i don’t believe that’s right.
i have the deepest respect for you if you don’t want to or can’t forgive Hash, or anyone else in his situation. i also have that respect for you if you can or want too. but no one should be pushed one way or another. the real thing i’m concerned about isn’t the forgiveness, it’s the insults, the harassment, the threats, the deciding who get’s to be ‘ on tumblr ‘ or not. that’s not your say, and if you think someone shouldn’t be here, report them. it’s the best thing to do.
i stand by not forgiving someone if you can’t, or don’t want too. i only ask people to not resort to death threats, and other tactics. there is a blacklist for people you personally don’t condone, and a report button if you think it goes deeper. you don’t have to lower yourself & use mob tactics, it becomes a cycle. & in the end it creates more victims & anxiety in the community you’ve trying to do right by. i’m sure not everyone feels that way, and that’s okay, but some people do. i’ve seen that today. and that’s not fair, is it ?
again, this isn’t about Hash. this can be applied to so many situations, minor and major. and again, it’s only my opinion.
