There are certain aspects of Tumblr culture that I find really creepy.
Pulling receipts on people is one of them.
Even creepier, the people who go out of their way to send asks like “Just so you know, you reblogged so-and-so and they said something homophobic three years ago.”
Okay? So? I’m just here reblogging dog pictures and funny screen caps from trash tv shows. I don’t really care what so-and-so said three years ago.
You know who else said ignorant shit three years ago? Me.
You know who else said ignorant shit three years ago? You, probably.
I mean, if I reblog something from someone who is actively, currently, human garbage… like if I reblog something from someone who is on par with Donald Trump, go ahead and tell me.
Otherwise, maybe just let it go and stop pouring so much energy into policing the internet. Most of the people here are in their teens and early twenties. They are going to say ignorant shit that they regret!
If you are currently in your teens and twenties and you’re bristling at the idea that you too may be saying ignorant shit that you are going to regret, just you wait and see.
Growing up is a constant progression of looking back at your past self and thinking “Oh god, what the fuck was wrong with me?”
