note this is not hating on that blog

anonymous asked:

I don't get where this idea that Destiel shippers hate Sam comes from? I have never heard a Destiel shipper say they hate Sam.. and I follow A LOT of Destiel blogs. This alleged hate doesn't even crop up in Destiel fanfic (all the best Destiel fics I've read.. and, again, I've read A LOT.. feature Sam in a positive way.) I've heard/seen some criticism of Jared (and his fans) from time to time, but that's all. Never Sam.

Hey~! 

Seriously, same. :p 

I follow like 400 Destiel shippers, and I’d say that 90% of the biggest and most known blogs on the Destiel side of the SPN fandom are in there? Like the people whom everybody knows and thus their posts spread quickly and widely in the fandom? And not one of them hates Sam or makes negative posts about him? And I never see posts like that from other big blogs/or with many notes, on my dash either? Actually almost all of them are Team Free Will enthusiasts, and when they include Sam in their fanfic or art it’s always in a positive way? 

Like, I’m sure that there’s a handful of Destiel shippers out their that dislike Sam (just like there are Destiel shippers out there who dislike whatever other random characters), the fandom is pretty huge after all, but I never see any specific Sam hate-spreading worth mentioning, outside of a stray troll blog here and there that usually quickly comes and goes?

On a rare occasion I see someone rant like “UUUUGH >insert team free will member here< IS MAKING TERRIBLE DECISIONS AGAIN”, but this goes for literally all three of them and it’s not only Sam being called out, tbh.

Honestly, ask me out of all of these people that I follow to point you to someone who posts or spreads Sam hate, I couldn’t point you to one? Even though I follow plenty of folks who aren’t really optimistic about the show itself anymore and criticize the writing, Sam hate is very rare? 

Truly, one of the biggest mysteries in this fandom is the ‘Destiel shippers hate Sam’ rumor. Unless there are some hidden Sam-hate cults on Twitter or Facebook that I don’t know about? :p 

But here on tumblr/AO3 I just???

Honestly, a look through the notes of @assignedmale comic strips gives you a TON of racist, homophobic, trans phobic, pro-intersexual genital mutilation, etc. people to block. Triggering for some people because of all that stuff and more, but, someone could create a master block list from it. And Assigned Male is a nice comic about LGBTQ+ kids.

HOLY SHIT YOU WEREN’T KIDDING!!! Oddly enough, there’s even a HUGE amount of anti-Semitism in the notes too, like what the ever loving fuck?!?!? Are these assholes literally just out to send any and all kinds of hate they can???? 

@assignedmale I’m really really sorry you’re getting all of this hate, your blog seems to be amazing and I’m loving what I’m seeing so far in your comics. Keep rocking it and don’t be afraid to let me know of any particular bloggers that need to be called out/others should be warned about. 

If you see this, can friends/followers pls do me a huge favour and go check out this blog and give them more support?? Also, going through the notes and blocking left, right, and centre is a good idea me thinks…

Getting rid of nazis on your blog

Hey, if you’re sick of nazis on your Tumblr but you keep on having to block new ones, Tumblr’s most recent experimental feature can probably really help you out. It’s called Reblog Graphs and you can test it here

Basically, what it does is show you a network of how your post was reblogged and who were big influencers in getting lots of reblogs. That’s useful in general but extra usefull if you want to know who to block to get rid of shit on your dash. 

For example, this post that I wrote got a lot of notes and when I use Reblog Graphs is generates this graph:

I’m the yellow dot and all the other dots are reblogs, the bigger the dot, the most reblogs originated from that reblog. Next, I can click on the dots and see who they are and what content they added. For example:

When @thatdiabolicalfeminist reblogged my post the result was a lot of supportive reblogs, helpful feedback and conversations that I want to have. 

But check out the other cluster: 

When wogbeginatcalais reblogged my post the result was a stream of hateful comments by white supremacist, nazi blogs and nazi trolls. Not stuff I want and one reblog started all of it. 

I had blocked a lot of white supremacist blogs when the hate started, but according to Reblog Graph I missed out on quite a lot of the most important blogs that were causing my post to be noticed by these shits in the first place. By blocking key nazi dots in this chain, I can now more effectively stop nazi shits from finding my posts. Good to know!

That’s all. Happy Tumblring.

You’ll never speak again and they hate you. Got less notes on your blog lately? You’ve lost popularity and noone likes it any more. You’ve lost your shirt and havn’t found it? Gone forever.

hi! im a new simblr, can you give me any advice to start off? i love your page and theme, by the way. :)

Sandy’s Masterpost for starting a new Simblr! 👍

Welcome to the community! I’m so glad you like my blog! Just a few months ago I was also new to the community so I know how daunting it can be! Below I’ve put together a bunch of helpful tips and links that I’ve either used in the past or believe will be useful to you, and any other new/aspiring simblrs! Obviously, everything is subjective- what works for me might not work for everyone else!

🎁 The Basics:

  • Make your tumblr a seperate tumblr, not a sideblog under your main/personal blog. It will make everything easier in the long run, trust me!
  • Use your description to advertise to others what you and your blog are all about. Also having either your URL or your avatar sim related will quickly advertise to others that you’re a simblr! 
  • Enable replies and asks in your blogs settings, if you want people to be able to interact with you and your posts! Bare in mind an interactive simblr is much more approachable!!
  • Keep it sim related! A few personal posts every once and a while is perfectly fine, but post a lot of unrelated stuff you could lose followers. 
  • Network! Follow other simblr’s, like their posts, leave friendly and encouraging comments! Making friends in this community is a sure-fire way to get started. I would be nowhere without my simblr friends!
  • Don’t become disheartened if it takes you a while to take off! Every simblr grows at a different rate.
  • Don’t mistag your posts! Failing to tag your NSFW content or tagging posts that aren’t cc posts as ts4cc will make you very unpopular.
  • Keep your blog atleast 80% original content! It’s much easier for a blog that tries to be original to gain traction in this community! 
  • Don’t get caught up in how many followers/notes you have! Just post what you post because you love it! Don’t worry what other people think.
  • Everyone at some point or another will recieve anon hate. It’s sad that there’s so many negative people out there, but my advice is just to delete it. If you do want to post it, handle it with grace and dignity! (think of Audrey Hepburn!)
  • This is more a personal one but: try your best to avoid the drama!!
  • Finally, treasure your followers & always stay humble!

🎁 Common Simblr Terms Explained:

  • NSFW: Not safe for work. This is used for any posts that contain nudity of adult themes! It’s very important to tag these posts.
  • WIP: Work In Progress. This can refer to any sim related project that is unfinished. 
  • WCIF: Where Can I Find? If someone sees a peice of CC in one of your posts that they like they may send you a ‘WCIF’ through your ask box, they’re simply asking where they can find that certain peice of cc. Not all simblrs agree to answer WCIF’s but it’s certainly very nice to!
  • MM: Maxis Match. Refering to custom content that matches the general aesthetic of the game.
  • Alpha:  Refers to hairstyles that don’t fit the aesthetic of the game, as they have alpha layers which allow certain parts of the mesh to be transparent. This is what makes alpha hairstyles more realistic looking.
  • Clayified: Refers to Alpha hairstyles that have been retextured to look more maxis match.

This is everything I could think of! I hope something here helps you get started! If you’re hoping to be a story based blog I’d reccomend checking out my storytelling masterpost! Otherwise, good luck love!! 💖

i really hate to bring up d*scourse on here but i feel like i can’t keep running this blog unless i address this, and if you’re not a lesbian please do not on add to this post.

please stop shaming lesbians for expressing their love of p*ssy. please stop shaming lesbians for being “exclusive” and “close-minded.” it’s concerning seeing other lgbt people on this site saying that “lesbians are gross for only liking p*ssy” and that “they need to stop.” sex-based attraction exists, the way we feel arousal is based on physical attraction and it’s h*mophobic to shame lesbians (and gay men) for it.

i’ve seen the posts: “if you’re a lesbian and you won’t have sex with a tr*ns woman because she has a p*nis you’re a tr*nsphobe,” anyone who disagrees is called a “terrible person,” and lesbians who disagree are automatically labeled as “t*rfs who deserve to die.” i’m concerned that no one reblogging these posts seems to care about how guilt-trippy and manipulative this rhetoric is, nobody owes anyone sex under any circumstance. 

i have gotten anonymous asks by thirteen year old girls saying that they’ve been the subject of call-out posts made by adults calling them tr*nsphobic even though they support tr*ns women, and now they wish they liked d*ck but they can’t and they feel terrible for it. this rhetoric tells lesbians that they will be fine with d*ck once they “get used to it,” so they should essentially force themselves through sexual experiences they’re not aroused by because eventually they’ll forget to feel sick. it causes the same shame and guilt that lesbians are subjected to while existing in a heteronormative world, dealing with straight conservatives and h*mophobes who say that they “just need to find the right man,” or that “the right d*ck will fix them,” even to the extent of corrective r*pe.

lesbians are not broken, lesbians are not disgusting, and lesbians are not inherently hateful because of their sexual attraction. i just think it’s really disturbing that lesbians are shamed for their attraction from both progressives and conservatives.

if you disagree with me, you obviously have the freedom to block/unfollow this blog, but i am begging you to please think critically about the rhetoric you see on this site. think critically about this post, think critically about what your mutuals post, and think critically about posts you see with 100k notes (there’s a reason people call this website an echo chamber). think critically about the arguments you disagree with, and think critically about your own.

Toxic Idol Culture

Anyone who’s followed me for a long time knows that I have… my issues with idol culture. I know this can possibly sound ironic considering I’m very popular here but at the end of the day I can’t help that so bear with me.

The reason I say “toxic” in the title (asides from being a strong word that immediately conveys a message) is because I’m addressing a specific subset of idol culture where people will vehemently defend someone’s horrible actions simply because they have a large following and/or pretend to care about topical issues like social justice and trans-rights (the latter being extremely important to my family, my friends, and recently myself).

It’s a shame because tumblr in general does seem at least somewhat more clued-in on how people abuse power (this ranges from world politcs to small corners of youtube), but this knowledge never seems to be applied to tumblr itself. There’s a cycle here, where someone is given disproportionate about of praise for arbitrary things (being a feminist, anti-nazi, or mildly funny, etc - all fine things on their own but hardly noteworthy), they get cocky and play into the role more, then start abusing others (doxxing, harassment, etc, usually of minors ironically enough).

This is partly why “funnymen” being outed as legitimate perverts and pedophiles is becoming increasingly common (or, at best, don’t believe the stuff they pedal out). Ultimately, it’s the person in question’s fault for being a scumbag of course, but tumblr’s unnecessary idolization of people who simply don’t deserve it has a large impact on what these people think they can get away with.

A large reason why this seems to happen is because nobody here seems to want to ask questions. A perfect example of this is when I receive messages warning me about an OP of a post being disgusting in some way, but when I investigate it turns out to be false.

However, it’s hard to fault anyone particularly for being a little bit gullible because ultimately we all want to be part of something. We all want to be liked, loved, and acknowledged. Asking questions, or otherwise being “difficult” can harm this so sometimes one might feel safer by saying “ok i’ll delete the post” rather than “can you show me some proof?”

It’s also a shame because, memes asides, tumblr is a pretty enjoyable website. At the moment of writing, there isn’t anything quite like it, but the experience is marred by people (and their imitators, especially) looking for cheap notes by exploiting serious political issues, where it is nearly impossible to say anything outside of ineffective self-indulgent feelgood “activism” without someone aggressively hating you for it.

For a website that houses a lot of people who claim to want to protect minors/transfolk/etc, there’s a startling neglect of how these people can be taken advantage of by the very same blogs that claim to help them. Anyone on this website can say anything but to actually practice what you preach is an entirely different story.

Interestingly, this is why you get certain “Hellsite” moments like someone complaining about getting hate after telling someone to kill themselves, or people posting things like “just be nice but also fuck [inoffensive group of people]”. Anyone who’s followed my blog for a while (or even just pays attention a little) know that this is hardly a rare occurrence. I think the term for this ‘cognitive dissonance’. This stuff makes good joke fodder, but it’s pretty sad that this stuff happens in the first place.

Toxic idol culture isn’t contained to just social justice circles either. Even opposite groups have become victim of this (maybe they always have, in retrospect). You may know that an ex-friend of mine recently shared suggestive photos of a 16 year old. Long story short, me and a lot of others were uncomfortable with this and promptly dropped them but I was mortified at how many anti-sjws came out in this dude’s defense over something that can only be considered objectively predatory and creepy. The person in question used tumblr’s liberal usage of bold accusations to wave-off what he had done, and his followers ate it up. It served as a important reminder that you can essentially get away with anything, as long as you have a significant follower count and frame your dissenters in a harsh, unrealistic light.

To anyone that defended/defends this guy, you should be ashamed of yourselves.

Some are not above co-opting important social justice issues for internet points. A lot of time, it’s merely an avenue for them to be the very bullies they once hated but since it’s masked, the bullying is often ignored or encouraged. It’s easy to call someone a transphobe for an arbitrary reason, but it takes a considerable amount of effort to actually help a trans person in need. We should be doing more to support people who do the latter, rather than the former.

Anyway, the point of this post isn’t to make you paranoid, or to hate anyone with more than 3k followers (popular blogs make easy enough targets for hate anyway), but just to be a little more cautious and a little more critical of these kinds of people (who will inevitably get mad at this post and make passive-aggressive vagueposts about anyone who agrees), and to generally stop glorifying hateful blogs who’s main shtick is attacking people.

I realize, in the grand scheme of things like social justice and such, this is a small slice of the pie, but this is definitely something that needs to be thought about more.

Sometimes, the cases are just sad. 

They end, and they’re solved, and they’re easy, and done, but that doesn’t really mean anything. There are still people left hurting and lost. Families ripped apart. Sherlock having to explain something numbly, being forced to ignite the grief in someone’s eyes.

Those times are not always, thank God. But, whenever they do happen, Sherlock hardly sleeps. John can see how he quietens- not his usual contemplative mode, but something withdrawn and achingly lonely. How his fingers twitch for a cigarette- a distraction.

On one such night, John wakes to an empty bed. He finds Sherlock in the kitchen, sitting in an almost darkness, the only light coming from his laptop. The ghostly blue of the screen highlights the dark shadows under his eyes.

He’s replaying the family’s appeal. And now, John cannot understand how he could ever think Sherlock didn’t care.

He doesn’t say anything. He just walks over and shuts the laptop lid. Sherlock’s eyes remain blank and staring, as if the screen is still in front of him.

John clears his throat. “Sherlock,” he says. His hand reaches up, and strokes Sherlock’s hair. “It’s not your fault.”

Sherlock blinks. Something lights up behind his eyes, as if he’s only just seeing John is there. “I…” he says, and his voice falters, and John pulls him to his chest. He feels Sherlock’s body shake a little.

“It’s not your fault,” he repeats.

“I…I know.” And it almost sounds like he’s starting to believe it.

John’s hand moves from stroking Sherlock’s hair to squeeze his shoulder. “Come keep the bed warm?” he suggests.

Sherlock laughs, taken by surprise. John smiles in triumph.

But, in bed, Sherlock turns and hides his face in John’s neck. His body starts to shake again. “I hate this. It doesn’t make sense, it- it’s cruel.”

There’s anger there, John knows. Grief. Empathy. Fear.

He thinks of the Sherlock who sits down and explains to children why he’s sorry, he’s so very sorry, but their mother isn’t coming back… the Sherlock who leaves post-it notes on delicate case files with Not one for the blog… the one who strides into Scotland Yard in righteous anger, demanding to have a murder inquiry reopened. Justice. Closure.

John kisses Sherlock’s forehead. His neck feels wet, and he holds Sherlock tight. “You’re trying,” John whispers. “That’s it. That’s all you-”

“Is… is it enough? How can it ever-” Sherlock chokes on the rest.

“Oh, Sherlock,” John kisses him again. “’Course it is. You… it means the world.” 

Sherlock exhales against John’s neck. His breathing wobbles.

“Shh, now. Close your eyes. I’m here.”

Tips for Beginners

When typing this title, my phone autocorrected it to “Tips for Whiners” which is hilarious given the circumstances surrounding this post. However, my conscience got the best of me and I decided to title it differently even though there was peer pressure for the original title. However, not all beginners are whiners (by far) and I figured it wasn’t fair to lump people into a group. Plus, this post is meant to be far more informative and encouraging than it is critical and teasing.

New writers are always looking for help and tools to use to get their writing “out there,” wherever that is. They want to build their audience, which means gaining followers and notes on posts. They seek out help, work on their blogs, and write a lot.

However, some new writers fall into a trap of jealousy and complaining. They become frustrated, then turn their frustration into jealousy. They whine about not getting notes and followers, they complain about blogging cliques and unfair treatment, and they adopt an attitude of “Woe is me. The blogosphere is against me.”

This post is meant to be helpful to each group by providing both useful tips and reality checks. At no point do I actually mean to be hateful. Am I sassy, though? Yes. You can stop reading this post at any time, too. You can also take what works for you and throw out the rest. Nothing here is a blanket statement. 

But let’s just get on with it. ( And it is a long one)

Previously:

You had to admit that the forecasters had been right as you trudged through almost two feet of snow to the lean-to.  As you tied the horses together with the extra rope you’d brought, you kept looking over your shoulder.  Part of you wanted him to come looking for you, to beg you stay with him. The other part of you wanted to get as far away from him as you possibly could.

Once you had the horses lined up behind Loki, you mounted the stallion and began the treacherous journey back to the barn.  You chanced one last look back, disappointment flooding your system as you topped the rise that removed the shed from your view.



 

Italics at the end are a flashback

You and Steve had managed to avoid seeing one another for a week following the storm.  You spent the majority of your time in your dad’s office in the main house, just to make sure that you didn’t see him.  Your emotions were a jumbled mess and you had no idea how to deal with what had happened in the shed.  Your relationship with Mark was so easy, and you had really thought for a brief moment you could have that same type of arrangement with Steve.  Obviously there were still feelings there, at least for you, and that made it impossible for you to keep things casual with him.

But WBC is real with actual documented incidents. What has a real SJW ever actually done besides make stupid people feel uncomfortable on the Internet

There is no such thing as “a real SJW”.  “Social justice warrior” was always a negative label from the beginning, created to designate those that are not representing social justice as it should be (kind of like how the term “weekend warrior” is used to describe someone who’s normally boring from Monday through Friday, but goes out of their way to indulge themselves irresponsibly on the weekends in an attempt to compensate).  Wearing that label unironically is like publicly proclaiming that you’re a bigot.  You’re utilizing the No True Scotsman logical fallacy here.  Also, the fact that you said “make stupid people uncomfortable on the internet” really doesn’t reflect well on you, especially when the majority of anti-SJWs are liberals, LGBTA people, minorities, etc. that are simply “uncomfortable” with how you’re poorly representing what we believe in.  The fact that there even is a divide between people that all desire equality just goes to show that someone is doing it wrong (hint: It’s not the anti-SJWs).  If anything, you’re just showing people exactly the kind of attitude that people hate about SJWs.  It’s the fanaticism.  It’s the extremism.  There are people who simply have faith in a higher power, and then there are people like WBC, who actively use that faith to try to harm others.  This is why they’re really the perfect analogy when discussing what SJWs are to activism.

In any case, are you sure you want me to answer this?  Because I don’t think you’re going to like what you see.

What has tumblr done, you ask?:

    Meanwhile, the sane people of tumblr mocked the shit out of them for intentionally kicking the hornet’s nest, and then whining when they got stung.

    Why?  Because 4chan contributed over $23k to it. 

    I’m sure all of this doesn’t even come CLOSE to what SJWs have done overall.  I could probably spend weeks finding all sorts of bullshit to put on here.  I openly invite others to add onto this, as I’m sure there’s a lot that’s been left out (@takashi0 might have a list on hand).

    This is why people are against “social justice warriors”.  They are NOT representing social justice.  They are NOT supporting equality.  They are only giving liberals, activists, women, minorities, and the LGBTA community a bad name.
