Just a quick message to all of my young followers who may not have learned this:
Don’t engage racists, sexists, homophobes, nazis, fascists, trump supporters, etc etc online. Not total strangers whose politics and motives you don’t know. Most of these people have no interest in hearing what you have to say and just want to humiliate you so they can screenshot what you say out of context and perpetuate some narrative about women/ LGBTQA people/ people of color being stupid/ irrational/ not deserving of respect whatever their motive is.
If one of these people tries to engage with you the most that you should engage back is to reblog their post and tell your followers to BLOCK them. And then you should block them too.
The only people who you should be actively engaging are your family members and friends who you’re confident are coming from a place of ignorance and not deep seated hatred.
This isn’t to say you can’t make educational posts or talk about your personal experiences. Just don’t engage with the hateful people who may try to bate you. They have a motive and it isn’t to learn from you.
