The i-am-a-fish debacle really highlights what’s wrong with tumblr: people get too attached to young adults (because Fish is an ADULT, not a kid) who do nice things online like say cutesy/positive stuff about the gay community without thinking critically about who they’re defending.
You guys need to learn first and foremost to kill your idols before you love them. I am very serious. Fish was found following multiple accounts that post lolicon (drawn ch*** p*rn) and incest (including Rick and Morty and Spiderverse incest), and yet people rush and clamor to defend them because they said nice things about lesbians and stuff.
You all need to understand that people can support liberal viewpoints and still be fucking child molesters.
Oh, and lastly, the argument that people are just going after them because they’re a big blog is a moot point. As a random example, g**eralgrievousdatingsim (whose name I censored so that they don’t have to see this post if they don’t want to) is a MAJOR, EXTREMELY POPULAR BLOG, and in their entire time as a major blog they have had pretty much one single post that was interpreted incorrectly and “called out,” and they immediately addressed it and cleared it up.
The reason that Fish has not addressed the allegations individually and has instead just gone “nooo i didn’t do anything bad why are tumblypoos so mean :(“ is because they were fucking caught. Look at this situation objectively!
As a final note, people are not attacking Fish because they support ace/trans/lesbian/nb/queer people. I am a nonbinary lesbian, but I have stopped supporting Fish (I used to be a fan of theirs) due to their frankly sickening actions. Minors like me, PLEASE REMEMBER THAT ADULTS ON THIS WEBSITE ARE NOT YOUR FRIEND. They can be nice, they can be funny, and they can make great positivity posts, but if they are proven to be Twitter pedophiles, LISTEN.
