The problem with tumblr.
You are all angry.
Stupidly angry, rightfully angry, angry for the sake of being angry.
It needs to stop, at least on this website.
Every week there is a situation which follows this pattern:
Situation>Angry reaction>Thought out reaction>Truth through research which disproves the original point>A lot of ignored fact as people want to stay angry.
And what does it accomplish? Nothing.
You’re convincing other people on tumblr.
Nothing leaves this site.
A reblog doesn’t accomplish anything when you’re already in a hive mind of agreement.
You’ll find an asshole off this website, screenshot it, and bring it back here to get people to chastise this person without ever confronting them or trying to educate them in a one on one conversation.
Eventually someone hunts that person down and bring all their followers.
Stop bringing back up to make someone’s life hell because they’re not apart of your hive mind, talk and respect opinions even if they conflict with yours.
And god forbid someone is brave enough to speak out on this site, you attack them until they’re gone because they got in the way of your unrealistic world view.
1 vs 1000. Gee, you’re all so oppressed by this one person’s opinion.
You don’t even try to educate if they’re apart of this website, it’s straight to anger to perfect the sjw eugenics.
You can’t act like every argument is a war.
Nothing changes except the fact you continue to make yourselves the bullies.
You think more people are willing to change their stance if you’re representing your side of the argument as an onslaught of anger?
No, it builds contempt and reinforces defiance.
Learn to pick your fights because it’s getting out of hand how embarrassing things are getting. This website is the butt of all jokes because you demand respect without being respectful.
It’s not even fair on yourselves in the end.
I’ve seen people going from the kindest individuals into a slave of sjw reblogs.
These blogs represent you and your likes, your lifestyle.
Every post is like an object in your room that defines you.
Are you happy in your room, or are you just filling this room with things you’re told you’re supposed to have?
I’m not saying ignore everything, some causes do help. But learn to filter between awareness that will help vs a reblog that makes you look good for reblogging.
I can’t tell you personally what’s important or not, that’s subjective, just be aware you’re not obligated to be angry at everything handed to you.
Otherwise you filter your blog to sjw bs, and make hive mind subsets, a cycle of people with the exact same thought process which traps you into only seeing angry sjw posts.
Life is about conflicting ideas and compromise, not a dictatorship of right or wrong.
(And stop adding “they should die” if they don’t agree with you. That’s not helping, it proves you’re just as immoral as you claim anyone else to be.)
I don’t really know how to conclude this other than… think for yourselves, think what makes you happy, what ACTUALLY makes you angry and deserves your attention, and all the emotions in between.
It’s not fun being angry.
Don’t let your life revolve around it.
Anger is a sign you need to find compromise, don’t yell at everyone to do what you want.
As I said, your arguments never leave this website (unless they’re cringe bad), you’re just creating a hot box of hate we all gotta deal with one way or another.
