Oh look…. the representation of this entire god forsaken website
I’m saddened by the accuracy of this -Eleven
The accuracy hurts.
I HAVE NEVER HIT THE “REBLOG” BUTTON FASTER IN THE TWO YEARS THAT I’VE BEEN HERE.
If this doesn’t get an assload of notes, it’s because the idiots on here can’t stand looking in a goddamn mirror.
I talked to a person that said anti-tumblr was exaggerating the problems about the place (which they were considering that some of the shit they took for their examples were about as calm as you could get as a hater) but…no, even tumblr is sick of itself.
It has gotten to the point where I have seen trans people ridiculing and bullying other trans people so horribly said people have accused the “tumblr trans community” of hurting them worse on tumblr than their oppressors offline. This is a sickening trend and people need to start spreading love, not this all-consuming vitriol.
Urg guys no that’s not
the problem with this is that it’s trying to portray hypocrisy when what it’s really doing is portraying two different people in each thing.
It’s like, each rational first person is what the movement actually is/the majority of people in the movement are, and then the second person portrayed…
Y’know maybe some people are like that maybe but honestly not many and it really just looks like a cruel exaggeration intended to vilify people on tumblr. If you need to use caricature-ish strawmen in your comic then your argument is probably kinda flimsy. And mean. At least that’s how I see it.
Tumblr isn’t great (in fact it has a buttload of problems), no website is, but you’re treating it like it’s this great big homogeneous thing when *shockingly* it’s actually a bunch of different people who have conflicting opinions sometimes. On top of that you’re making it out like every person interested in social justice on the site is just this bubbling hypocritical hate-spewing machine ready to burst. (and yes by labeling it “Tumblr” they are indeed implying every sj person on tumblr)
Not to mention don’t you think this is kinda a distraction from the actual issues? Like sure, some people who are in an oppressed group can be kinda mean about it, does that mean their entire argument is invalid? Say for example a black person is not absolutely polite to you about racial issues for whatever reason, why is your immediate reaction to make a comic about it? Why not just, like, let it go, realize it’s just one person and it’s really not gonna have a terrible effect on your life (like actual racism probably has on theirs) and continue fighting racism? You also don’t have to interact with that person anymore y’know?
But, i dunno, whatever
I see these things all the time and they just, they don’t feel fair.
