I fucking hate this website.
It doesn’t matter who you are or what you like, you are reduced to shit. Nothing is okay on this website, and I’m fucking sick of it.
It’s like a cycle of hate, no matter what you do, it’s not okay.
What I want to know is: who gave the power to all these arrogant-ass teenagers with no social lives? Why is everything THEY say the right answer. How about fuck you.
Yes, exactly! I can never seem to keep track of what has been deemed “okay”. One minute everyone is praising some actor, and the next the person made an honest mistake, as humans do, and suddenly they are a MONSTER. It’s interesting, because you have to wonder why it’s okay for the people of Tumblr to determine what is and what isn’t okay.
There’s no independent thinking on this website, it’s just people full of hate screaming at everyone for doing something “wrong”, even if they have no proof/evidence. No one does any research, people just want to get MAD about EVERYTHING.
I have contemplated leaving on countless times, but I think I would miss the good parts of Tumblr, especially all the friends I have made there. But I still feel sick every time I see a post of people shaming someone for liking a movie because they interpreted a line from it as “pretentious”.
(I hope you don’t mind that I posted this, I just wanted people to read my answer).
It’s patently bullshit. I think anyone who’s gone to school has heard this from teachers, maybe they’ve even heard it from their parents: “You just gotta be yourself.” But it’s very clear that they don’t really want you to be yourself because every time you express a viewpoint that doesn’t conform to their rigid standards of how a human being should conduct themselves, all the sudden it’s “What are you doing? You need to join the herd. You need to be part of the collective.” And you’re like, “Well, what about being myself?” “Yeah, you need to be yourself within the confines of the collective. What we meant when we said be yourself is that you’re the borg drone that’s fixing the power relays and uh that borg drone, by contrast, is working on the navigations array. So, you see how there’s a slight difference there. But yeah, you all have to be part of the collective. Individuality—that’s not allowed. We didn’t mean be yourself as in ‘be a unique person with your own thoughts, feelings, and opinions.’ We meant be yourself in the sense of ‘be somewhat distinctive, but in a way that we can utilize you.”The Amazing Atheist (via invisibella)
I do, i just don’t believe I need to label myself a feminist for that.
If you believe that women should be treated equally to men, then you are a feminist. Don’t act like feminism is a bad thing because it really isn’t. Yes, there are extremists but there are extremists everywhere.
Question: Do you consider the National Organization for Women (NOW) to be a radical feminist group?
Because at least as recently as 1996 they fought AGAINST a law that would have made custody default to split custody when neither parent was considered incompetent. What was the reasoning behind this? Dad’s ~might~ abuse their kids. This doesn’t make sense to me, especially when statistics show that it’s actually predominately mothers who abuse kids, and not fathers.
Does that seem like a legal equality for men and women to you? Cause it really doesn’t to me.
