since when do we stop being critical about the content of “funny” statements/posts? the people messaging you are just pointing out that they didn’t agree with its content and were potentially offended by it. the excuse of ‘it’s just funny it’s not supposed to show my views on something” is exactly how pewdiepie has defended himself (not to compare the situations obvs). isn’t the first step when receiving criticism paying attention to how it has affected others and not your intentions ?
Step one for me taking this conversation seriously: don’t try to have it with me on anon! Yes, I am inherently more dismissive of criticism when someone is not using a signed in account. This is not something I’ve ever been misleading on. If you wan to have a real conversation about real concerns, I will do it when we’re on an even platform and not when the person trying to come at me is hiding behind anon.
Step two: don’t go for really off the wall antagonistic comparisons like ‘oh, you’re being just like pewdiepie.’ Observational humor is not the same as violent humor. Vegans do like to talk about being vegan and nowhere in that observation is anything inciting violence, it’s not hate speech, it’s not even an insult because vegans - as you and the other anon proved - adamantly defend why they talk so much about being vegan. I’d never reblog something that was genuinely hateful. Mad respect for the animal compassion of vegans but you’re not above me laughing at observational humor, sorry.
Step three: react when I’ve done something, not literally months later. As I recall after I did reblog that a couple people did message me and I had nice talks with them, and I’ve not reblogged anything like that since out of consideration - the same way I stopped reblogging food because someone asked and I tag insects because someone asks. The way you approach a person makes a difference.
Anons off for a while because I do not have the patience level for this today. Which doesn’t mean I’m not willing to chat about it; just means I’m not having that chat with anyone on anon.
