I Hate Tumblr Social Justice Stamp by animeninjaNIPPON I Hate Tumblr Social Justice Stamp by animeninjaNIPPON


I got into Tumblr mostly for art and writing purposes, but then I posted the wrong meme and realized that Tumblr is basically the female answer to Reddit and 4Chan. I stick around mostly for this one comics blog I submit to weekly but other than that, there is no shortage of things that piss me off about that site:

- Teenage girls/college students claiming to be third-wave "feminists." The RadFems are the worst offenders, to the point where you can only assume that they are trolls (or risk losing all faith in the human race). Then there are those that claim that "everyone for equal rights [between the sexes] is a feminist," and the only logic behind that statement is either a) they legitimately think that men are at the pinnacle of equality and women need to catch up, hence "being equal" or b) they don't understand what egalitarianism is. I don't have any issue personally if somebody wants to identify as a "feminist," but too many on Tumblr don't even know what their own convictions are, which makes it hard for me to take them seriously.

- Whatever the hell passes for "gender" these days. Remember how about a decade ago on dA, every girl and her sister was "bi"? I don't know how many of those girls still identify as bisexual, but I'm seeing a new trend on Tumblr with (mostly female-born) people identifying as "trans*" - not necessarily transgender, as in identifying as the opposite sex that one was born with and all that, but any and all parts of genders across the board. The most common is "genderfluid," which I don't understand because a) the concept of "gender" (not to be mistaken with biological "sex") is subjective depending on culture, region, upbringing, etc. and b) I only ever see girls identify as this, making it seem like some sort of social cue to be accepted (when I was younger, I used to think that being a guy/more masculine would get me more respect/acceptance, too, so I'm not trying to be judgmental here). And then there's stuff like otherkin, which doesn't even make sense outside of the furry fandom. And then there's a bunch of extremists who think that anyone who is not trans ("cis," if you would) is evil and needs to die...that is never acceptable.

- Racism/cultural appropriation accusations. I see a lot of normal, well-meaning young white girls get bullied because they wore some kind of braid that originated in another culture, or cosplaying as a character of a different ethnicity...all justified because they supposedly "approppriated" that look from another race. If you point out that all cultures assimilate parts of other cultures into their mainstream regardless of ethnicity (for instance, Japan's "Gothic Lolita" style), they give you some idiotic excuse about how non-white races are entitled to do such because white people have done it to them for so long. Then there's the whole "white privilege" thing, which makes me angry because it forces people who are otherwise in similar situations (for example, poor whites and poor blacks) against each other for no reason other than perceived social stigma, further widening the gap between haves and have nots.

- Doxxing, cyberbullying, etc. This speaks for itself. And of course, whoever is in charge of the website these days does nothing about it, at best...after reading Tumblr's new "guidelines," I'm convinced that the original creator left his spoiled teenage daughter to look after the site while he takes a vacation with the CEO of Yahoo! or something to that effect.

(I understand that a lot of the aforementioned arguments are based on American ideologies, which is a problem in and of itself.)

Long story short: There is just so much hate, immaturity, ill-informed arguments, double standards, hypocrisy, logical fallacies, and all-around idiocy perpetuated by the "social justice warriors" on Tumblr, and I can't stand it.

EDIT: stamp base -->…

EDIT #2 (4-8-14): In my original comments I didn't mean that transgender and whatnot isn't a real thing. I admit that I don't have a full understanding as to nonbinary individuals, not having said experience myself. My problem with the community in question (on Tumblr, anyway) is that it has gone to a level where it is hard to tell what is a real issue and what isn't, and the way things are handled is all too reminiscent of the problems in the bisexual community several years ago (which I am a part of). Back when I was becoming aware of my sexuality, there were too many young people (mostly girls) who identified as "bi" and were willing to shove their beliefs down other people's throats, making it hard to take them seriously. To this day, it is still hard to take them seriously, and what's more is that most of the outspoken ones no longer identify as "bisexual" and will probably never admit that they did. I see this same pattern of behavior developing on Tumblr with the trans/nb communities, and I predict the same outcome. If there is SJW hostility in any cause, it's going to do more harm than good.

I already had to suffer with an acquaintance REALLY hating men and straight people.

"Boys are gross."
"Ew. Straight people."
"If I see straight couples making out in front of me I will [insert inhumane threat here]."
"If you aren't a feminist you are a [insert insult here]."

Guess which blog she came from?

This is part of the reason why I hate like 80% of the SJW posts on Tumblr. I signed up for Tumblr for laughs and giggles, not... misandric (however you spell it) "feminists".

"Then there's the whole "white privilege" thing, which makes me angry because it forces people who are otherwise in similar situations (for example, poor whites and poor blacks) against each other for no reason other than perceived social stigma, further widening the gap between haves and have nots."

I have a problem with this whole "white privilege" thing too and for a number of reasons.

1) It makes white people feel ashamed of themselves, which leads to low self-esteem. When people have low self-esteem, they're going to resent those who they think have it better. I know what having low self-esteem is like. Because back when I was a teenager in high school, I felt ashamed of being a black female because I believed society thought of my kind as the most ugliest of all people after hearing about things like black guys preferred white girls or black girls being the least preferred kind of women for reasons like "they're loud and trashy". Because of that inferior complex, I became envious of white people and hated them. Good thing I'm over all that after getting some pride in myself and growing a brain.

Also, nobody likes to be demonized. You know those furries/elves/other species vs humans stories, where the humans are the bad guys and the other race are the good guys. If you feel the humans being portrayed as the villains (or inferior, regardless of whether humans are good or not) is an attack on you, then you might end up hating the non-human race(s). I know I get jealous sometimes when humans are portrayed as the weakest race in stories. This example can be a reflection of white people starting to get fed up with being demonized as the worse race of all.

With all this in reason #1, it's important to not attack the Caucasian race as a whole and only criticize the individuals who do bad things. Because white-guilting/demonizing leads to creating low self-esteem in whites, which eventually turns into self-hate and envy, which then turns into racism against those outside the race. That kind of process can happen with any other race as well like it did me. With all this in mind, I have a very important message to all those reading this: Love yourselves and have pride in your race. Because without pride, it'll be hard to love others and avoid being a racist. Now I know there are white supremacists who are very arrogant and look down on non-whites, but they do not represent all those who have pride in their race. Remember, one can have pride without being a douchebag. Pride and supremacy are two different things. Pride is when you love yourself and your background; supremacy is when you think you're better than the others and deserve special treatment, sometimes at the expense of others. We know black/Asian/etc. pride isn't racist, so why should white pride be called racist? It's not at all.

2) There's been this attacking of the Western culture or "white" culture as some call it (which I refused to call it that, because non-whites live in it and practice it too) about how it's the most racist, sexist, and homophobic. Never mind that there are cultures that are worse off in those prejudices than America, Canada, and Europe. Apparently, it's okay to criticize the west; but if you criticize a foreign culture (and even rightfully so), then you're labeled a racist. People, not criticizing a culture is how you keep those who oppressed by it in turmoil. If you don't call out Uganda on its homophobia, gays keep getting killed. If you don't criticize the middle eastern cultures, then women, homosexuals, and non-Muslims will continue to be oppressed. Criticism is how one gets a chance at reforming themselves to be better. Don't be afraid to call out any culture's bullshit when you see it.

There's probably more reasons that need to be addressed, but I'm too tired to speak right now. Maybe some of you people would like to fill in for me?

I am a lesbian myself and all I want is equality.
I don't want more rights than men, I just want the same ones they have. I like equality. 
Call me messed up in the head, but honestly, I don't believe it when people say they are bisexual. Yes, they do exist, But I don't think they are very common. I have doubt when a person tells me they are bi, and I assume they aren't, especially if they have only been with the opposite gender. As a true lesbian (I only like women, not men, romantically.), it might look bad that I don't believe people off the bat about their preferences, but I highly doubt them. I think they re trying to fit in when they are just straight allies with occasional interest in the same sex. Having brief crushes of the same sex doesn't make them bi. In the same way, occasional brief crushes of the opposite sex doesn't make me bi. I have been with three men, but I only prefer women. 
Does anyone get what Im saying?
h-irsch Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2015  Student Digital Artist
I do not support your doubt, however, I do find it understandable.
ThatFreakyZephyr Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Its my view that I don't support people who claim to be someone they aren't to feel included. True Bisexuals exist, but they are pretty uncommon. 
If you don't agree, why reply?
I know its freedom of expression, but its just a sentence. No offense, but I see a lot of similar things on religious groups.
For example, in LGBT stamps, there are some that say "I don't support gay rights but Im okay if you do."
Its a waste of space. 
Unless it has value or has criticism of worth, then don't put it down. 
It might sound harsh, but I have a point. 
cranegoose Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2015  New member Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I do get what you are saying, and there's no doubt there are "fakers" who are only trying to fit in with what they believe is "cool." (I've known a few such people...)

I identify as bisexual, though I have only been with the opposite sex (not for lack of trying), and am currently married to a man.  Unfortunately, the women I was sexually and romantically attracted to did not share my feelings, though there was no shortage of men who were willing to have a "relationship" with me.  The fact that I am now married to a man does not make me less bi.  It just makes me married to a man.  I still feel attraction towards both men and women.  :)
Many people, (and I assume you as well), would try to deny me my own identity, but I feel it's better to take people at their word.  The "fakers" will reveal themselves in time, even sooner when you take them at their word.  I've found it makes them uncomfortable.  ;)
ThatFreakyZephyr Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ah yes. You are a true one. 
Its not cool to be gay or bi, in fact its harder for us to live a normal life because of true oppression. They don't see how we feel. I got harassed a few times for being a lesbian. Its painful. I can understand that heterosexual people are much more common than homosexual ones, being I am one myself. 
For the fakers, I am tempted to ask them something awkward and funny like
"so, how was your night with (person of the same sex)?"
They'll probably say "yeah, it was great!"
"Do you like them?"
"Oh yes, we talked a lot!"
And i'll be like 
"Was the sex any good?"
And they'll be all: "EWWWWWWW sex with them???"
Then I'd be all: "you're not bi"
If only I had the bravery to tell them that.

I really hate seeing when they self-diagnose themselves with medical conditions like PTSD or OCD. I was actually diagnosed with PTSD a year ago by a fucking doctor, and even then I didn't use it as something to shield myself from hate on the internet. I mean, shit happens, get over it.
VimituHanna Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2014
I actually made a post on tumblr about the self diagnosing thing and how it's not okay to wave it around like it's a prize and use it, if they even had it, as something to use as an excuse. 5 hours later, 150+ notes, death threats, "Kill yourself!", "OP IS AN ABLEIST!!", "OP IS A CUNT", "OP IS A -100 more names and insults" "OP NEEDS TO DIE!" , etc. Perfect example of how shitty SJW on tumblr is. I'd hate to see how many notes that post has now. I switched blogs, so I wonder how many hate asks that one has now too.

The SJW's on there is literally the only reason I don't have a Tumblr blog actually. It's impossible to have your own opinion when you're on there. 
Also: "Drawing on information from four recent national and two state-level population-based surveys, the analyses suggest that there are more than 8 million adults in the US who are lesbian, gay, or bisexual, comprising 3.5% of the adult population. In total, the study suggests that approximately 9 million Americans – roughly the population of New Jersey – identify as LGBT."


And Trans is less than 1% of the population

I'm sure as hell that dA and Tumblr don't reflect those statistics correctly :/

With genderfluid it's because they identify with being both female and male qualities. Or something I dunno. If that's how people want to identify themselves then it's fine. I respect that. What I don't respect is the recent wave of generalizations.

Seriously throwing people into the same group isn't right nor has it been. Not all groups are evil. We learned this in elementary school.

How I view cultural appropriation is that you're taking something from a closed off culture such as the various Native American/First Nation tribes. There are also religions like British Traditional Wicca that are closed off to outsiders. With the First Nations, their culture isn't to be used and abused. And going further the Lakota tribe actually has a declaration of war against anyone who takes from their culture that dates back to 1994 and is still in effect today. Now every First Nation has it's own representative or a council of them. I think it'd be best for people to ask first than just saying "hey this warbonnet looks totes cute Imma wear it"

And as far as cyberbullying goes, I look at it as toxicity. If you have the urge to treat others like shit because you had a bad day or a life then you're a toxic person who needs to donate their computer to charity.

And yeah there's a lot of hate. It's why I don't identify as a feminist anymore but as a egalitarian. Unfortunately despite my tumblr being a fandom blog I still see social justice shit. I'm tempted to just block the ones that do post it. Especially those that write guilt tripping posts.
