social justice blogging in some tags

Zarkon lives for the Aesthetic AU

So @wlwvoltron​ and I decided that Zarkon runs a pale grunge blog

  • The reason why he’s destroying the universe is so everyone can be a part of his ~aesthetic~
  • He runs a blog called pastelgalraempire
  • Title:  🌸welcome to my twisted mind🌸
  • Haggar is the photographer
  • Bio:  zarkon//cishet//age is just a number ;P//anti voltron//anti social justice//pro galra empire//alteans don’t follow//just an old soul with childlike dreams of ruling the world//anti cisphobia//anti heterophobia//pro world domination//call me out idc
  • You bet your ass he took a picture of himself getting charged up with quintessence he captioned it: Watch out you filthy voltroners uwu
  • posts: {original} 👑lmao weird how some people will claim to hate you but then use gac (something you created) at a space mall      
  • tags: #voltron #call out #anti voltron 
  • posts: {reblogged from haggar} sending out love to the galra empire. the vjws (voltron justice warriors) on this site like to oppress you, but you’re amazing. tags: #awwww~ #galra positivity #anti galraphobia
  • He is the KING of those flower crown edits and buts those pastel stickers that say cute and stuff all over it
  • He put a flower crown on Donald Trump and captioned it: ~my biggest fan deserves an edit :3~

  • When sendak disappeared/haxus died he made a funeral post and decorated it with cat stickers and pixel angel wings
  • Whenever someone in his empire makes an edit for him he reblogs it and writes “owo what’s this Owo”
  • Call out posts for Voltron,, so many call out posts
  • Allura: block @pastelgalraempire he’s an anti vjw go under the cut for more receipts
  • Zarkon: if you interact with @princessallura or @teamvoltron unfollow right now!! i don’t want hate in my empire nwn
  • Zarkon: lmao why are yall hating on @princelotor?? sexism doesn’t exist anymore~
  • zarkon: [picture of lotor destroying a planet] oh how the time flies!! my son finally conquered his first planet XD i’m so proud

I can’t believe we’ve made a post about this so long but TL;DR Zarkon is the biggest pastel grunge ho there is

why is the q slur always the ONE thing which liberals running “social justice blogs” get into a heat over being asked to tag? like i’m sorry but there’s nothing “radical” or “enlightened” or “revolutionary” about refusing to tag literal hate slurs on your “uwu acceptance uwu social justice uwu” blog, especially when the hate slurs in question are such a common trigger for so many people. if you’re willing to tag just about any other trigger or hate slur on your “accessible/oppressed minority-friendly” blog EXCEPT for that one, then you have some serious guile and need to rethink your stances.

like get off your fucking moral high horse and look at the bigger picture here. there are people who don’t want to see that word due to SPECIFICALLY lgbt-related abuse they’ve endured, and refusing to tag it or even just acknowledge it as the hate slur that it is only tells me that you’re nowhere as “radical” or “enlightened” or “revolutionary” as you believe you are, and therefore not to be trusted on lgbt issues. it’s that simple. 

jewish tumblrs list

  3. emperor-of-matzah - Not too much on faith, i’m secular. I focus a lot on Jewish history, languages, food, culture, etc.
  4. everafterbreathedisaster - Conservative Jew. This blog is mostly a bunch of bands and humor posts with social-justice and activism mixed in.
  5. acejews - multiperson blog w/ mods of varying observances - a safe space for all ace-spectrum jews, whether jewish by patrilineality, matrilineality, or conversion (past, or if you’re currently in the process)
  6. arothejew - a Chabad/Chassidic Rabbinical Student, who runs a jewish blog in his spare time from yeshiva. I’m especially open to give advice and answer questions - judaism, jewish law, spirituality. Even if I don’t know the answer to the question, I am surrounded by Jewish scholars (rabbis) of incredible caliber who can also help get your questions answered.
  7. believebeluga - reform Jewish - primarily a wildlife-centric blog, but I also bring up social rights issues and Judaism pretty frequently. 
  8. @sapphic-krogan - reform Ashkenazi Jew, and I post a multitude of things but as for Jewish stuff it’s mostly about Jews in fiction, Jews in current events, and responses to antisemitism.
  9. zeeziegallifrey -  Conservadox-Reconstructionish! (Ask me about it :) ) - A wild mix of Judaism, cats, well-tagged fandom, and living with chronic illness. Very much here for baking and interfaith work!

katennara  asked:

How do you think Hyde's tumblr would be in a modern AU?

I don’t think he would have one. In fact, I don’t think he would had any social media profile, this is a guy whose conspiracy theories goes beyond the circle lol. If he had profiles, they would had been most likely done by his friends (probably Eric) and later, he would had to use them because Jackie won’t stop bothering about it.

But in the remote case he would had a tumblr…

  • Since the thing would probably be done by Eric, the username would be something pretty obvious at first and Hyde would probably search for it to be different so no one (but his friends) can imagine it may be him. I guess he would be pushing at every option in the control tabs and getting a headache because he decided to do so at like 3 am on a monday.
  • Generic, simple, boring theme. Just changed the background to black or to some badass picture. One day, Donna and Kelso would change the theme themselves, but as long as it’s simple, can read shit on it and mostly black, it’s ok.
  • Just reblogs a lot of stuff, refuses to post something. Not about him, not about anything.
  • One of those that appears every new moon, reblogs a lot of crap in five minutes, then disappears until the next new moon.
  • Lowkey reblogs everything Donna ever posts.
  • Messy and more probably non-existent tag system. Like he may tag a few things, things he would actually like to find later (#references #burn).
  • Midnight shitposter if drunk/high, thing that starts happening more and more from age 13 to 17. When he starts dating Jackie, his policy of not post shit comes back, mostly because he knows he will end up posting about her and #nope.
  • He ends up posting about her. Tag was something like #get out of my mind or deadpan #nope at first, gradually becomes something like #my chick.
  • Doesn’t have the ask or submition option activated, has messages only for people he follows.
  • Stupid humor posts. Agressive social justice. Lots of Trump hate.
  • Secret poetry side-blog that at some point becomes pretty active. If that point seems to have something to do with the tag #grasshopper, he just ignores it.

anonymous asked:

do you know any past drama that had happened in the hetalia fandom - some noob who likes drama

I do. 
Back in the day, the fandom was huge. FrUK and USUK wars were constantly fought. The whole rapist thing was being thrown around. It’s all typical stuff that you know.

But one thing that most people don’t know is when the SJWs lead a crusade on this fandom. I was a veteran in that fight. 
It was during the time when I fell out of Hetalia. It was a time where I had about 3 posts per month on here if I was lucky. The fandom was dying and it was a lot smaller at this time. It was March of 2015. The 29 and 30 to be exact. It lasted about 2 days. 
I was on my other blog on another account when I heard there was some shit going down in the Hetalia fandom. So I hopped over to this blog (which had not been very active in a while). Apparently, people were spamming the Hetalia tag with unrelated images and rants. Then I heard that people were spamming porn and gore. Knowing how young the main audience is and having a social justice blog with experience of debating these people, I jumped in and started flagging NSFW stuff and talking to the people that were doing this. If you go back in my archives, you can see some of the arguments that happened.
And through my debating skills, I schooled the SJWs on their flawed logic and they left. That or they just got bored. 
I guess you can say this kind of helped me get back into Hetalia. Because later on that year I started this blog back up again. 

And that is the story of the SJWs crusade on the Hetalia fandom.

pixelbit5  asked:

Could you please stop tagging your posts with autism please? Some of these things could be considered offensive when placed in that context.

Well, you see son, this blog has been labeled as “highly offensive” in the description. See, in the meme world, offensive is a good thing. Offensive is funny. That is why we tag and post offensive content. The cultural obsession with appropriation and social justice is what has propelled this form of humor among both conservative and liberal-or even political agnostics. 

So I would suggest you enjoy the content and thank your autistic brothers and sisters for their conditions. We all have problems and laughing at each other I believe can ultimately bring us together. 

Since I’m just returning back to tumblr I would like some more blogs to follow. First of all, please only like or reblog if your blog is DRAMA-FREE. This goes for any kind of hate, fandom-related or not, as well as extreme/a lot of social justice. I also don’t want to see underage ships.

With that out of the way, here is the kind of stuff I’m interested in:

  • Ace Attorney
  • Harry Potter (a minimum of sad stuff please, I need some happiness in my life)
  • The Elder Scrolls
  • Pixel art
  • Original Art & OCs
  • Fanart
  • Moodboards & Aesthetics
  • Studio Ghibli


If you reblog just to boost (which would be super nice!), please tag as such.Thank you!


Notice: I try not to follow underage blogs, so please don’t like or reblog if you are. This is simply for my own personal comfort, I’m not trying to invalidate anyone.

bazwillendinflames  asked:

This sounds weird but what kind of tumblr blog do you think all the Class kids (+ Quill) would have. Quill would have a cat meme blog (obviously) but what about the rest?

okay, this was actually a series of asks a while back and tbh I think @resting-meme-face‘s answers to them are my favourites so I’m gonna link to those for the ones that she did:

So, that leaves April and Charlie. Though I did do one for Kalei when that ask thing was going around. 

Charlie:

Charlie needs Matteusz to explain how it works, but he gets quite into it. 

His tumblr is like his bedroom, it’s just about space, it’s the most obvious “look at me I’m an alien” you’ve ever seen, to the point where Quill actually criticises him for it and tells him that he needs to be careful in case UNIT are monitoring them. (You know, since there was already that close call with Matteusz’s instagram and Quill really doesn’t want to have to move to France or some shit.) Well, and he posts a lot of cute selfies of him and Matteusz and gets a bit of attention for that, because people love cute white boys kissing.

His URL is literally secretspaceprince and it was Tanya’s idea and the kids all think it’s hilarious and Quill wants to bash their heads together. 

He’s genuinely a bit traumatised the first time he gets followed by a porn blog, poor Matteusz has to save him and he’s trying to cuddle him to make him feel better but Matteusz can’t stop laughing into his neck because the look on Charlie’s face was just too funny. 

April:

She changes her URL after the shit with her heart starts happening, to violinsandschmitars or something else that shows her contrasting aesthetics. Maybe like, violinwarriorking or something. 

Her blog is partly pretty aesthetic stuff, partly some shows like Riverdale that she just watches for the hot people and cos it’s easy, and then maybe some poems or something, tiny bit of social justice stuff. 

She reblogs a lot of Charlie’s pictures of him and Matteusz with a bunch of love heart emojis in the tags. 

Kingsman Meet-up!

I got tagged by @becool-mallory!

I entered the fandom a few good months after the movie was in theaters. I always meant to see it with friends, but the semester at that time kicked my ass, so I wasn’t able to go. The general feedback was that it was a very funny movie, but since I didn’t really see the trailers/promos or know any of the actors (save for Colin Firth, whom I knew as That Guy Who Won an Oscar for The King’s Speech), I quickly forgot about it until I rented it from Redbox for my mom and I to watch. 

If you know my mother, you’ll know she definitely did not like it, while I (surprisingly) did. I normally dislike/am indifferent to action/spy movies, but Kingsman was pretty fun and these two interesting protagonists had some chemistry. Cue going to A03, reading some hartwin, and fleeing from the SPN fandom to join this one. And it’s totally been worth it :) 

If you’re looking for some fics, I recently posted a little something to help get you started! There’s no way I fit everyone and everything on there, but go ahead and start clicking; I promise you’ll find what you’re looking for! I also love edits/fanart by @phaeleah, @liprouvaire, @harryeggsy, @tabaccus, @meetingyourmaker, @paxdracona, and…a lot, actually. I tag pretty religiously, so feel free to search under kingsman fanart, hartwin fanart, kingsman fic rec, etc. You should also follow all these people’s blogs ;) 

I write stuff on A03 and also some ficlets on tumblr. My inbox is always open! I’m primarily a hartwin shipper, though I do write other pairings from time to time :) 

I post a lot of Kingsman and stuff from my other fandoms, as well as some social justice/political-related things. This fall, if all goes well, I’m graduating as an English Education major/Chinese Language minor and going to apply to grad school, so yell at me if you have some worldly wisdom :)

In lieu of a selfie, here is a photo of my dog on the couch <3

There’s a place in Turkmenistan some people call the Door to Hell; it’s a basically a huge sinkhole that opened up and started leaking methane gas in 1971. It was set on fire at the time, to prevent methane poisoning in the surrounding area, and it’s still burning now. To any tourist, it looks like an enormous hole in the earth that’s always been filled with fire and always will be.

I’ve been in and out of Tumblr’s ace community since 2011 and I’m afraid Tumblr’s ace discourse phenomenon has become… a lot like the Door to Hell.

Blog recommendations

This is me jumping on @evshansen’s figurative bandwagon. There’s gonna be a “☁️” if I’m fortunate enough to be their mutual. Also the thing’s in alphabetical order.

@bibliophile-extraordinaire ☁️ You should follow Eli as she’s one of the kindest people you could hope to meet. She credits artists, has great taste in musicals featuring barricades, and she’s the last person I’d expect to see in a murder trial. That’s how nice she is.

@butts-of-the-barricade ☁️ As well as the love/hate relationship she has going on with Aaron Tveit, she’s very funny, very smart, very gay, and very interesting. She deserves the best. Or at least she deserves to recognise that she deserves the best.

@crypticdatesuggestions This blog is incredible. It’s the perfect mixture of void and romance. I would watch a movie based on any of the romantic suggestions. It caters to all genders, and is well worth a look.

@essentiallychaotic ☁️ McKenzi is warm and kind with an incredibly eclectic music taste, and is just a great person. Supportive, enthusiastic, reminds me of Feuilly. You should follow her as she’s McKenzi. For me that’s reason enough.

@evshansen ☁️ If you like musical theatre and blogs run by flipping amazing people, then you should follow Tori. She’s positive and theatrical, and will probably like your drawings. She’s kinda like human glitter. Colourful and nice, and makes any situation brighter and more enjoyable.

@gayerthangrantaire ☁️ (💙💙💙) Trinity’s blog is a mixture of anime, social justice, memes, and is run by a real-life Grantaire. They’re hilarious, and cool, and she deserves all the pictures. I wish them and their girlfriend every happiness because Trinity deserves to be happy. Also Trinity has great music taste, which includes songs about insomnia and anxiety. Seriously- Trinity’s amazing and I’m lucky to know them.

@greymichaela Firstly she’s flipping hilarious. She has a wonderfully dry sense of humour and it’s worth following her for that alone. Also she’s kind. She’s so kind. She gives amazing advice and she’s always patient and just - a good person. She has lots of great interests, (some of which I don’t know very well but they seem pretty cool), and she consistently posts cats. She’s a great writer and deserves all the cats/well written fanfiction in the verse. (She will also make you ship sabriel).

@horaetio Maddie is brilliant. As is her blog. It’s a perfect concoction of Shakespeare, Star Trek, The Smiths (and other great music), social justice, aesthetic posts, and various other pop culture. Also flawless selfies. She’s an intelligent, fascinating person whom you should totally follow.

@its-better-than-an-opera ☁️ Laura is one of the sweetest, most loyal people I know. She’s very knowledgeable about les mis and leaves nice tags when reblogging fanart. She’s like sunshine but less deadly. Do yourself a favour and follow Laura.

@just-french-me-up ☁️ There is a reason she’s one of the most loved bloggers on the internet. She is kind and positive and says “dang” and “fam” a lot which I think is awesome. Her tags/headcannons/fanfiction are some of the best things I’ve read, and she’s always helpful and funny and benevolent.

@mariuspontbambi ☁️ Garance is caring and comforting and she makes me sad when she doesn’t see that she’s a good person. Garance’s blog includes les mis, social justice, cats, and kindness, and I reckon the world could use more of those things. I reckon the world could use more Garance.

@pntmrcys ☁️ Ethereal, insightful, Mariusy, and a generally beautiful person; Maria epitomises all the good things about tumblr. She’s very important and deserves the best. Her aesthetic is calming and good, which is one of the many reasons why you should follow her.


@richard-ayoade I’m quite a big Richard Ayoade fan and I think this blog is fantastic. It’s funny and stylish and I like it a lot. An amazing blog for an amazing man. Thanks to the person for making the blog.

@silence-song ☁️ Admittedly I haven’t known this person for very long, but they are nice, friendly, and they even let me ramble about philosophical points that I sometimes think about, even though it doesn’t always make sense. I appreciate that. You should follow ‘em as they’re a great person with equally great taste in anime.

@starsandamorphinetoast ☁️ Okay, Riley’s cool as heck. He knows everything about his interests, posts both les mis and Pride and prejudice, and is just generally a cool dude. (I’m sorry I used that phrase too). Anyway you should go follow him as he’s a very interesting guy. 🕶

@the-amazing-boy-catastrophe ☁️ Marcus is very important to me. He’s a great singer, handsome as heck, and his aesthetic is perfect. He is easy to
talk to, funny, knowledgeable, and gives really good advice. He’s just a great man who absolutely does not deserve any hate.


@universalhouseplant ☁️ She’s lovely. Her blog is cute, she posts about les mis, and reminds me of sunset. Soph’s a nice person who posts about pride and les mis. I’d love to talk to her more. Basically she’s fab. Your life would benefit from following Soph.

@vintage-jehan ☁️ is delightful. Browsing her blog is like walking through a beautiful gallery/library. It’s peaceful and features lots of les mis which I’m always a fan of. A wonderful person with a wonderful blog.

@vivalagrantaire ☁️ Firstly more Trinity which is never a bad thing. Secondly-quality les mis content with plenty of Grantaire. If you like les mis/quality les mis headcannons, then it’s imperative that you follow this blog.

@wanttodrawmothsfrommemory ☁️ Cas manages to be gentle and badass at the same time. She’s cheerful, gay, and adorable and must be protected at all costs. She also posts really cute selfies and says nice things. She even writes good poetry. Her kindness and use of “:D” means that her blog is a very good blog to follow. I feel very pleased to be her mutual.

You should follow these people to make your dashboard scrolling experience/life better. Thank you for reading, and thanks to the people I mentioned for existing.

i need to follow more blogs

my dash is dead

looking for a lot of blogs to follow

there are some requirements:

  • you have to have a tagging system (any will do)
  • you dont post a lot of memes and shitposts
  • i’m also not here for social justice (if you tag it and its only part of your blog that is fine(
  • your blog is a positive one (haters to the left please)
  • a big plus if you make your own content
  • fandom blogs only (mine under cut)

reblog if you want me to check out your blog

Keep reading

I had a think today about the tendency of social justice bloggers to provide extremely detailed privilege/oppression lists in blog descriptions and about pages.

Obviously, people are entitled to privacy. You’re allowed to run a blog without making a bunch of personal information available on demand to perfect strangers. However, this meshes really poorly with the idea that only certain groups of people are allowed to have opinions about certain topics, so we put social pressure on people to list their privileges in detail.

Some of that pressure is implicit. If it’s a thing that everyone else is doing, then you might feel compelled to do it, too. Some of it is explicit. When I first started blogging about adultism and youth rights, somebody anonymously told me that they wouldn’t even consider what I had to say until I listed all of my privileges in my sidebar.

While this is one of the areas where I’ve actually seen concrete evidence of a shift in community norms following meaningful self-reflection (several different posts that basically say “Hey, you don’t have to do this thing if you don’t want to”), I think the pendulum is bound swing back unless we address the root problem, which is the idea that only certain groups of people are allowed to have opinions about certain topics.

Privilege matters, but it doesn’t matter so much that you should stop thinking for yourself. Different marginalized people have different opinions and experiences. If you want to do the “sit down, shut up, and listen” thing, then you must necessarily listen to multiple perspectives and draw your own conclusions.

In general, when we encounter people that we disagree with, I think we should worry less about whether they’re “allowed” to say what they’re saying, and more about how to change their mind.

skullgirls blogs
  • beowulf: humor blog. does nothing but liveblog wrestling and reblog shitty repost +xnotes blogs. lots of 9gag. doesn't understand tags.
  • big band: blank blog. justice does not have time to post minutae. he has an account but it's just to keep an eye on peacock (he sends Very Stern messages when she gets into internet fights).
  • cerebella: business & personal blog. shameless selfpromotion, lots of talk about the cirque. also, every single one of beowulf's selfies, even the ones he accidentally posts of his feet. tags cirque stuff only.
  • double: a pornbot. every single pornbot on the site.
  • eliza: mostly an ~ancient egyptian~ aesthetic blog. plus signal boosts for her charity fronts, and every variation of money cat. no tags ever.
  • filia: aesthetic blog. photos of kittens, the ocean, and her starbucks orders. has an ungodly number of followers. reblogs everything that carol posts and gets her weird bursts of notes. tags for visibility.
  • marie: social justice blog. lots of resources but also personal ventposts and some frilly fashion photosets. tags painstakingly for triggers.
  • ms. fortune: humor blog. cats!!! memes, vines, shitposts, and puns. frontpage has autoplay of the dancing cat song. tags her own posts but nothing else.
  • painwheel: horror blog. mostly classic movie gifs, some meta. reblogs pun posts with "NO!!!". tags series but no warnings.
  • parasoul: business blog. advertising posts for new black egrets events. occasional annie of the stars meta. tags everything except for the aforementioned meta so that nobody can find it.
  • peacock: cartoon nostalgia blog. the source of the worst animaniacs gifs on the web. all assets are .jpg intentionally, or if .gif then they have more artifacts than indiana jones. tags are for the weak.
  • squigly: music blog. lots of phantom of the opera photosets and meta. the pizza rolls gif is autoreblog. tags everything meticulously.
  • valentine: nobody fucking knows. is it an antisjw blog? is it an artistic gorethemed visual blog? nothing is tagged and everything hurts.

So, uhh… I’ve mostly divorced myself from the tcc due to drama. I have a lot of friends still in it that I keep in touch with, but I’m mostly just reblogging info pots like I did before I even knew about it.

BUT

I still have a soft spot for Richard and Jeff. I’ll still reblog cartoons/memes/jokes about them

I still find Richard physically attractive and have some sympathy for Jeff. 

And because of these latter things, I still go on the tags, and I am forcded to confront these boring-assed trolls who do nothing but scream “UR HORRIBEL!” and “PEE UR PANTZ” and “U MUST WANNA SUCC DA DICC OF DA SHOOTURS”

No.

Stop.

Please.

My blog is a lot of my morbid stuff, yes, but it’s also still a lot of social justice. I don’t condone. ‘m not “edgy.” I’m a witch. I like what I like, and I’ve liked dark shit since I was a little kid. 

Just, I don’t know, read my blog and don’t judge my entire life off of a handful of “thirst Richie” reblogs, or something?

anonymous asked:

what witchcraft blogs on tumblr would you recommend? I'm interested in practical and kitchen witchcraft but what are some of your favorites?

Queer Kitchen Witch is always fabulous.

The Path of the Wise is great resource and is always there to answer questions. 

Eclectic Witchcraft is a little blend of green & kitchen witchery

Kitchen Witchcraft deserves their url

The Darkest of Lights posts well & often

Honey Coyote is on hiatus but I miss their blog terribly

Garden of The Queen does a lot of Fae work but even more work running a great blog

Spirits Craft posts witchcraft and social justice and is just a regular badass

Go through the Kitchen Witchcraft tag too and see who’s creating content. You find lots of great new blogs that way.

Hope this helps!

Pretty Warriors of Social Justice!

Fighting evil by moonlight, making video games by daylight!

Alas, GilbertGrape is like sand: it gets into everything, even totally unrelated blogs. Still, I was hoping and hoping some artist would take the term “SJW” in this direction.

Some mythos suggestions:

  • Special powers: Anita - can throw her hoop earrings like Sailor Moon’s tiara, Zoe - trapping enemies inside screencaps, Brianna - throws subpoenas like Sailor’s Mars’s fiery paper tags.
  • Brianna is the leader because she can transform into GODZILLA.
  • Leigh Alexander and SamusClone join the team later in the series.
  • And together they fight to defend the magical kingdom of Skeletonia from an army of enraged Mountain-Dew-fueled alligators.

if the vampire boys had tumblr blogs
  • Shuu: classical music blog with a simple dark colored theme, occasionally posts recordings of himself playing the violin. Has only ever posted one selfie but it has 20k notes. He gets love confession anons almost every day because of it. Doesn't follow any of his brothers, and has them all blocked.
  • Reiji: Hardcore S&M blog, elegant theme with an elaborate sidebar. A lot of nsfw. Everything is tagged accordingly. Follows all of his brothers.

Sometimes posts personal read-mores, but deletes them soon after. Follows Ayato and Yui back and reblogs all their selfies with the tags "idiot otouto" and "cute bitch chan" respectively.
  • Ayato: has the generic starter theme for tumblr. Not quite sure what he's doing - Yui set his blog up. He reblogs stuff from her, and posts a lot of sports stuff, and stupid vines.

Response to Notes on Open Letter to WTNV Fandom

Okay. So, considering my Open Letter to WTNV Fandom is now (as of time of this writing) at 750 notes (which is 749 more than I expected) maybe it’s about time to address the reblogs. I’ve said repeatedly I don’t have time to track each one down and respond individually because my blog will become nothing but endless reblog arguments, which I am not interested in. So. Below are the most common things I have heard in tags and reblogs (Yes. I read every tag and every reblog.)

I PROMISE TO KEEP MY TLDRS FREE FROM SARCASM. Because I know I’m long winded. Even though it irritates me.

Disclaimer: Tag and reblog numbers are combined because I cannot possibly open every single reblog that only has tags, I used tagviewer for the tags. Also numbers classified under Neutral may boost negative response numbers, because some people just tagged things that didn’t classify their opinion, and I couldn’t tell by the tag. I took the most outstanding trait of the tag or reply and counted it under one category, or a combo category.

I did not even count the Ask responses I received, all but two of which are published for you to see on the #wtnvletter tag. Two wished to remain private.

 TLDR: Responding to notes. tag + reblog = numbers below

POSITIVE REACTION TO LETTER

  • General support (including Thank Yous): 60
  • Feel this is important: 12
  • This/bless this/read this: 18
  • Gentle pleas to be kind to each other within fandom/can we discuss this topic without screaming: 7
  • Injured by/scared of the fandom: 13
  • Cannot listen to podcasts/post fan-material or opinions anymore: 8
  • Demands/requests to stop policing headcanons: 14
  • Someone said it: 5
  • Worried about direction fandom is taking/change things: 8
  • WTNV is worst fandom/friends resistant to joining/friends hurt: 6

I’m not making up these responses. Look through the tags yourself. This is a good chunk of the fandom here, some ex-fandom. Does this tell you anything?

NEUTRAL REACTION TO LETTER

  • Neutral/unsure of category because of tags: 52
  • First they’ve heard of it: 15

NEGATIVE REACTION TO LETTER

–PEOPLE I DO NOT TAKE SERIOUSLY

  • Personal attacks/cursing/this post is complete BS: 4
  • I hope more people leave the fandom/I don’t believe you: 5

*slow clap GLaDOS style*

  • Takes issue with Brony comparison/word-twisting segway about bronies: 3

For the Brony comparison, I have two things to say. First, thank you for educating me on the fact that there was a campaign against a 16 year old by the bronies involving rape and death threats. I was completely unaware of this, and will research it, unless one of you is kind enough to provide me a link.

Second, not once did I say that WTNV’s issues with race were similar to the issue stated above. Not. Once. Exactly what I said was “I do not enjoy the extremely vocal, forceful, and spiteful part of the (MLP) fandom. Not all Bronies are like that, but Bronies are often typified by their loudest, angriest components. In that case, my good Nightvaliens, you are worse than Bronies.” Important parts bolded. How that turned into me suddenly comparing social justice warriors to rapists and pedophiles I will never know.

TLDR: Brony point blown totally out of context.

  • Anti-SJW: 3 or 4 (did not count exact, more recent label)

Let. Me. Ask. You. Something.

What is a Social Justice Warrior supposed to do?

Because I have been under the impression all this time that Social Justice Warriors are the ones that go after the people with malicious intent in a given social issue, giving THOSE people the brunt of their anger, while trying to gently educate people who don’t understand and never meant any harm. Am I wrong?

It FEELS like, too often, the term SJW gives SOME the license to bully. In my note I specifically said that if someone is intentionally causing misery to X demographic, be my guest, go shred them. But that it is not appropriate to slam people who have no ill intent.

I believe in the power of words. I believe in the power of words to cause change, for great good or great harm. I have a cause too. And my cause is calling out the abuse of one. Human. Being. By another. Through their misuse and weaponization of words. For this reason I have greatly censored my reaction to several of the above reblogs/tags in writing this.

It’s not just “being mean doesn’t solve anything”. It’s “Cruel words breed exactly the sentiments you say you’re trying to avoid.”

TLDR: No. Not anti-SJW. Anti-cruelty, anti-creativity-controlling.

–PEOPLE I HAVE NO REACTION TO

  • General disapproval: 3

–PEOPLE I TAKE SERIOUSLY

  • Rational responses using logic and basis, if a bit angry: 6

I appreciate your viewpoints even if we disagree. I admit I wrote the letter defensively, angry at seeing how many people have been hurt. But there is something very wrong if there is this much bitterness around. Yes, there is blame to share, but that is the point. It is not just one faction’s blame. The knee-jerk reaction breeds worse poison that rots the whole, and I don’t think anyone wants that. I’m more than happy to discuss with anyone the content of my letter in messages, private or not.

I realize you have no way of knowing this based on the letter I wrote, but I am not someone who enjoys confrontation. It takes great incivility to drive me to anger, and in that letter I did not 100% lose my marbles, as I have in the past. (I’m not even sure that linked note presented any kind of coherent argument, I was seeing red.) I did not 100% lose my marbles because there is validity in what you say, yes there needs to be representation, but attacking people for attempting to express their fandom love is not helpful, it’s abusive, and is alienating quite a few people. And not just the “assholes” you think you’re pushing away or shutting up.

The letter was reaction to hurt and abuse I’ve seen. It was a reaction to seeing people, who already struggle to produce creativity, completely shut down because of an aspect of their expression. Civil discussion is more than welcome. I’m not perfect, but I try my best to be honest and calm when people are honest and calm with me.

TLDR: Respectfully disagree. Message me if you want to talk. I don’t bite rational people.

  • Angry at me because they appreciate Nightvale for making them look at their own privilege more: 2

Bravo. Good. I am glad. I admit I also need to understand more about my own privilege. But it should never ever come in the form of a backhand to the face, or a kick in the teeth. And that, more often than not, is how I have seen it dealt out. Emphasis on what I have seen. And if you want to say I’m oversensitive, please, refer to the people above in the Positive section who are now afraid to post anything, or have been hurt badly by people in the fandom.

TLDR: Self-examination good. Method of rage education questionable.

  • Don’t shame the whole fandom because of a few of us: 7

This is the most difficult to address, although I have done it a few times now. Here is my response concerning this. My blog format jumbled it up, so you might want to read the person’s main post which is bold and toward the end of the note for some reason. Then go back up and I answered several points.

TLDR: I know it’s not all of you. Telling you what the fandom appears like from the outside. Emphasis on “appears”.

OVERALL REACTION TO REBLOGS AND TAGS

Positives: Thank you.

Neutrals: ….okay?

Negatives: Believe it or not, this is not me attempting to undermine social justice. But social justice was never supposed to steamroll and abuse. And whether YOU IN PARTICULAR READING THIS have or have not partaken in the abuse, it is happening in the fandom. And it is happening way too much. And that is undermining the entire fandom. And if the fandom wants to survive, the entire fandom has to figure out a solution. And THAT is what I meant.

Open to Asks. No time to respond to every reblog. I do, however, read all reblogs and tags.

Goodnight, Night Vale. Goodnight.
