Tumblr makes me feel conservative. Like I thought I was really open minded until I hit tumblr. After tumblr....not so much. Thing is, I don't mind. I think the "open minded" people on tumblr are bit too far gone.

Tumblr on one hand makes me feel old, and on the other sort of makes me feel glad it wasn't around when I was 16, because I totally would have been one of those teens with a special snowflake sexuality ho reblogged stuff about mental illness incessantly.

I don't think the people on tumblr are as open minded as they say they are. On some parts of tumblr you can bullied or even have someone attempt to dox you because they didn't like your opinion.

Some of the people on Tumblr really illuminate the phrase "you're so open-minded that your brains fell out."

Me too! I'm left-of-center politically, but these people's positions make me feel like Ann Coulter. The 'too-far-goners' and the barrage of incessant gifs have made me stay far, far away from tumblr. Seriously, so very, very many gifs. I miss LJ where you could have actual conversations and the crazy was so very much less.

Oh, yes, this. I used to think I had serious mental issues, but then I found Tumblr, and I don't think so anymore. I am, at least, capable of not turning into a twitching wreck because a stranger tried to talk to me, which is legitimately a major improvement over some of the people I've found.

(Anonymous) 2014-08-27 01:06 am (UTC)(link)
Same here. And I thought I was an obsessive fangirl who takes her ships too seriously, but compared to a lot of those people I'm well adjusted and reasonable (and capable of talking about other things/talking about my favourite shows and movies to people who aren't into fandom without bringing up shipping or anything like that).

it was the dashcon fiasco that made me realize I'm not as socially awkward as I think i am

(Anonymous) 2014-08-27 01:20 am (UTC)(link)
I've found tumblr to be a surprisingly toxic environment. I've used it for a couple years and have blacklisted an insane amount of things because my dash could be so so negative. It seems like small stuff until you see it everyday and it starts building up. I hope younger teens aren't taking all of their life queues from tumblr because yeesh

(Anonymous) 2014-08-27 01:27 am (UTC)(link)
And it's always from some idealistic 16 year old who thinks she has all the answers for really complex adult problems she has never actually experienced.

Like, come to me when you have to pay your own way in life.

"Life queues"

Apt misspelling that made me laugh.

What I find appalling about tumblr is watching people who at one point were lucid and rational disappear into the hivemind, like cultists. It's not a healthy environment for developing minds/personalities.

If even half the people on Tumblr have every self diagnosed thing they swear they have, the world will not make it another generation.

I would love to see how those ridiculous otherkins act if they have a job. I can't imagine they are too productive if their "wings" keep threatening to unfurl or some shit.

Tumblr's a double-edged sword. On one hand, you've got the people who are incredibly articulate and patient enough to explain something to me (I grew up in Indiana honestly not knowing that transgender people existed) without getting pissed off at me even though they would've been more than justified doing so. On the other, you've got the HAES people, one of whom took a picture of the building I lived in and sent it to me because I dared suggest that being overweight and obese isn't healthy. And it was even in response to a post where I said that being overweight or obese could be a symptom of a disease and not a cause, but nope, death threats.

Wow, that was longer than I'd intended...I think I've wanted to say this for a long time.

wow that was a completely unacceptable response from them

Man, that wasn't even that long.

Also stalking, what? That'

(I will grant you that there are overweight people who are perfectly healthy and have something else going on, but nonetheless. That's a point worthy of discussion, not...whatever the fuck that was.)

The biggest problem with 'being overweight isn't always healthy' is kind of.... so?

So what?

Today I didn't get my 20 minutes of vitamin D producing unfiltered sunlight.

I didn't drink my glass of heart healthy red wine.

The closest I got to a fresh vegetable was walking past them to pick up milk that's probably loaded with hormones and makes baby vegans cry. And I drove there in a car, cars are freakin' dangerous.

I'm using a non-ergonomic keyboard and slumped in my chair instead of having good posture.

Should I be joked about, ridiculed, have strangers tell me I shouldn't appear on TV because it might 'set a bad example', and have people stare at me in restaurants wanting to know if I've taken my multivitamin and drank my red wine and also why do I have a mole on my neck that could be cancer someday?

A person's health is between them and their doctor and potentially family/friends. It's really none of your business if I didn't drink red wine today.

HAES jumped the shark for me when a frequent poster on one of the blogs compared weight-loss surgery to the Holocaust...and nobody called her out.

(Anonymous) 2014-08-27 04:38 am (UTC)(link)
teens have always been searching for ways to express themselves, fit in and yet be singular all at the same time. tumblr seems great for that. Way, way too overboard great. I get that most teens will grow out of that but I also worry that quite a few of them actually get the impression that it's normal behavior and not something that will eventually be grown out of.

I don't even want to touch the thirty year olds that are acting like that on there.

An secret which says everything about you and nothing about others.

(Anonymous) 2014-08-27 05:29 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah, it says that they are a regular person, not like some people on tumblr. Your point?

Before you painfully explain something I already know, this kind of response says more about you than them, but you surely know that.

(Anonymous) 2014-08-27 06:49 am (UTC)(link)
I prefer it over livejournal tbh, especially for fandom related things too. at least it's more livelier.

(Anonymous) 2014-08-27 08:18 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah, it's sometimes kind of terrifying how much of an effect an online space (or really any fringe group with strong opinions) can have on someone who is figuring themselves out and doesn't have much contact with people outside that group.
