note this is not hating on that blog

To any blogs getting a lot of anons bashing and hating on Seunghyun and it’s making you feel awful or panicked in anyway (taking note from @bae-jagiya here), I encourage you guys to just delete the messages. I know it’s hard because we want to stand up for him and protect him, but sometimes it’s too much even for us. And if you delete the messages, it lets the anons know that you aren’t going to entertain them.

I love you all, please stay safe ❤️

… and on that note, I’ve closed my ask box for now because it needs a break and honestly I’ve gotten more than enough negative messages in the last 12 hours it’s bumming me out. If you hate where the show is going and want to rant about it, then by all means, please, do it on your own blog, rant all you want and hate on the show all you want, just leave me out of it.

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.

The thing is with BPD, is when something changes for over 2 days we assume it’ll be like that forever, and that it’s not just a temporary change/alteration. Havnt spoken to your friend in 2 days? 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. 

time for my messy unwanted unpopular opinion (again..!)

  • im sorry to say this but the reason half of you are so angry and disappointed all the time is that you take things so…personally. you think you are louis and what you believe his team is doing to him is actually happening to you? like, yall act like louis’ team is purposefully doing “bad” things just to spite YOU personally. i read shit like “i wanna stop supporting/promoting because whats the point his team doesnt want it blah blah blah”. all im gonna say is no need to be so dramatic no one is forcing you to stream in the first place but also stop being obsessed with his team…? you claim to love louis but then wanna ‘punish him’ because of his team lmao…makes no sense.
  • ppl complaining the promo is bad have literally not been there for niall’s promo but im not surprised because yall only pretend to like him anyway but if you paid attention you would realize louis had better promo than him and the reason why niall is so high now is because most songs take time to build up in the charts. SH debuted at #52 in the US. now its #19.
  • you have literally no consideration for what louis wants. you automatically assume that if what is happening is not what YOU want, then louis also doesn’t want it. you think he wastes his time in small radio stations? well maybe louis just likes meeting his fans from all over the country instead of always staying in london and seeing the same goddamn stalkers. newsflash: you are not louis. you dont get to decide whats good for him and what isnt, you also can’t get in his head to figure out what he wants.
  • you constantly project your stereotypes and bias on louis to shit on his own style. getting mad at his haircut - do you even hear yourself? being mad that what he wears looks “cheap” or “chavy” when all of his clothes are totally unaffordable (at least for me) and he fucking likes it. hes also being paid for promoting these designers so i really dont think hes crying at home. 
  • some of you dont wanna admit it but you hate it because you dont think he looks “stereotypically gay” the way harry does with his bright clothes. you think his clothes makes him look too “straight” and “masculine” and for you its incompatible with your belief that hes gay because gay people cant be masculine apparently. there’s also the fact that not liking a style personally (it’s ok we all have tastes) doesn’t make it objectively bad. you not liking it doesnt mean no one can like it.
  • another portion of you are just deadass angry because he’s (still) closeted and it appears some of you have inherent disgust for that and im not gonna elaborate on how that’s fucked up and none of your business.
  • i hate when he mentions his gf and his kid as much as everyone else but to act like its bad promo is just wrong. everyone else loves it and it makes him relatable even if its lies 80% of the time. just look at liam. so stop projecting, again, your own feelings into the state of his promo. 
  • again its just the FIRST WEEK of promo its not a disaster if he hasnt been on any TV appearance or done any performance. on the contrary, when all appearances are in the same week, the song DROPS after that because there is no more promo. that’s what all of 1d’s songs ever were: best charts the first week (first 2 days, really) then significant drop.

tl;dr relax a bit, and remind yourself at the end of the day this isnt your life its not happening to YOU and the world isnt ending. bye.

Could you please help me reach 100k on instagram? It’s @fabiostudies 😌😍
I love this pic so much! ☺ I hate when I don’t write for a long period of time (summer holidays) and then when i write again I can’t hold and writte normal for like 2 days? 😂😂

ok i know it’s 2016 but i just have to say that like, if you joined tumblr after 2010 and/or never got involved in the glee fandom you missed out on a core piece of this websites history

like you do not understand the scope, power, influence of the glee fandom. all the “leaders” of current fandoms now are people who were probably big in the glee fandom too. you literally had to be there. it was fucking crazy, it was horrible, the ship wars were endless, the hate was endless, but you know what - i genuinely miss it sometimes because it was the most prolific, engaged, and creative community i have ever seen and been a part of. 

like y’all. the art, the fic, the gifs, the manips, everything. this fandom was in a constant state of creation, and we constantly inspired each other. we gave great feedback. the ideas were endless. i once got 823 notes on a like 1 paragraph “fic” after gay marriage was legalized in ny. it would not be uncommon to post something and have literally 1000 people on your blog at once. for something like that to happen now would be astounding but it barely was back then, just pretty cool.

glee had its problems - many many problems - but it did something nobody else had done before, which is that it really tried to serve every single underserved group, meaning everyone got involved. there was never a time when you couldn’t relate to a character or root for a character or empathize with a character - everyone found someone worth defending or loving. what i’m trying to say is it was the pinnacle of obsession & investment. there has literally not been another fandom like it since. and the most insane thing is that most people who were a part of it ended up so disappointed by it that we have tried to sever all ties.

so i’m gonna come out and say i miss glee! except i don’t miss glee, i miss the community and the camaraderie and the creation. i miss always having something new to read or new gifsets to see or new meta or parallels or whatever. it was amazing and terrible and we had the time of our fucking lives before the show destroyed itself past the point of no return. so anyway. i feel now more than ever that something like the glee fandom will never happen again so consider this a tribute post to y’all who were there. solidarity my friends

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.

why are the task force such complete fucking morons

“huh ever since L died and stopped investigating Light the killings have increased exponentially isn’t that weird? Also Light has made literally zero progress towards catching Kira despite being just as smart as L, that’s weird too! By the way did we ever follow up on the fact that misa’s dna was on the envelopes from sakura tv or look into why the killings started as soon as she was released? no? how about looking into the plan L made before he died that would have conclusively proved what rules were real and which rules were fake, did we wanna do that? no? ok! boy we sure are good cops”

Hey folks! As has become customary around here, to celebrate the introduction of a new entry to Moss of the Woods, I’m going to do a little giveaway for one of my new plant pendulums!

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.

    This is a side blog, so I’ll be following people with SkyChasingDreamer. I write a lot of fics, make gifs, and do events that sometimes include giveaways like the one coming up: Gintoki Celebration

    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.

    In case it's relevant to anyone

    People who mistreat other people over fantasy and fiction can stay the fuck away from me.This blog has a zero hate tolerance policy.Keep your hate and ship wars far away from it.

    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.
