How in one breath they will praise some celebrity but then in the next one be all up in a riot over something that celebrity said 5 years ago.

Like sorry these celebrities are as "educated" as you in social justice and being PC.

edit: Granted if it is something really shitty then yeah call them out. but i honestly feel that most of it is unnecessary.

I read a post the other day that said:

White person: omg this is so hot/spicy
Me: it's literally water

How about I shove that water up your damn ass.

I have to admit I found that funny. It describes me perfectly, and I was born in Portugal so theoretically I should like hot food haha. My Mum always made fun of me because I can't stand even the mildest of peri-peri sauces.

I am against the whole "die cis scum" and "kill white people" crap of course, the extreme stuff like that is horrible. But I don't think lighthearted jokes like that one are really harmful in any way. When it's made about a black person, it comes with a large history of racism and the potential drawbacks for that black person are a lot larger than if somebody makes a joke about me liking Starbucks. I'm not going to go crazy at them, they are just poking some lighthearted fun. I'm not about to get turned down at an interview or be more likely to be arrested because the stereotype about my race is that we are "thugs". If the stereotype about my race is that we are uncultured and love Starbucks too much, I can live with that and not cry about it because I know it's not actually going to result in a lower quality of living for me.

Not trying to attack anyone in particular here, I just think people are a little too sensitive when it comes to these kinds of jokes. I agree that some go too far and border on outright hate speech, but most don't and the one in the post above certainly wasn't an example of one. You just can't compare them to what POC experience.

I agree with this so much. While I don't let the "Die cis/white/straight people" faze me, I do agree that it's not okay. But the rest? Why should I care, none of those jokes give me a disadvantage or discriminate me in real life. And I find most of them funny because they're actually true.

Once when I was scrolling through Tumblr, I came across this feminist who thought it was a great idea to collect her period blood and bake it into cookies and cakes. She'd go verbally abusing anyone who told her it was weird/disgusting.

Not respecting other people's ships.
People who cannot respect other people's opinions.
Weheartit photos. Learn to source properly.
Bullying / rude comments.
"Follow for pale/soft grunge" and other promotions. STOP.
Those "follow all these people for a promotion" posts. I bet 95% of the people on those lists promo nobody.
Tumblr giveaways. Those are also usually scams for followers.
Follow-hungry bloggers in general.
Random porn on my dash. Instant unfollow.
People who steal posts.
I know it is hard to get a short fandom url nowadays, but these long superwholock urls are getting on my nerves.
How there seems to be a large gap between tumblr famous people and non-tumblr famous people (I've seen this more in the themed blogs and not as much in the fandoms).
People complaining about EVERYTHING. There is a line between being funny and being annoying. Grow up.

I honestly love the made-up stories. They're entertaining.
And I don't mind social justice posts AS LONG AS THEY ARE NOT OFFENSIVE. If there is arguing, hate comments on straight/white/cis people, or anything offensive, it will not get a reblog from me. I'm all for promoting POSITIVE ideas and what I think should be changed in the world. I think shedding light on less-fortunate groups in society can be a good thing.

Tumblr is a cool place, but the bloggers are a bit crazy sometimes.

I'm almost 100% sure my friends and I have had this exchange at some point ;)

Seriously though, they're the kind of people who feel proud of themselves for being able to eat the medium spice at Nando's. They brag about it. Smh.

The whole thing of disrespecting teachers/parents/authorities. I know how sometimes things could fall apart between children and parents, but that doesn't mean these-- these-- KIDS could trample away and wishing their parents die or something like that. Dude, you're practically still living under your parents' wings and begging them for money. Show some respect.

Multiple links. "Just posted an entry on my Path, and it goes the same away to Twitter, FB, Wordpress blog, and Tumblr. Teehee!"

Was on tumblr the other day and this one person I follow was posting about being confused about what they identify as gender-wise, just venting on their own blog, and they got attacked by anons with stuff like "don't try to act oppressed you're just cis scum and you honestly deserve to die" and "you're just saying this because you want attention and because you want to have some reason to be oppressed" LIKE THIS PERSON WAS JUST POSTING ABOUT BEING CONFUSED. The stupid hate for no reason is one of my biggest annoyances with tumblr.

I saw someone ranting about how it was wrong to identify babies as their gender and that we should let them grow up and decide for themselves who they are. I mean, I get where they're coming from, but at the same time, they're just babies...it's not wrong to treat a baby girl like a girl and a baby boy like a boy.

Oh, and 'black excellence'. I saw this post on Tumblr about a young black boy who was said to have found the cure for colon cancer (Or was close to it) and people were saying "Black excellence!" and someone commented saying "No, this is human excellence!" and the person literally got attacked. People were saying "Typical white person can't ever give credit to a black person" when the person never even said they were white. Funny thing is, most of these black excellence "I HATE WHITE PEOPLE" posts are usually written by white teenagers who think they're special because they aren't racist. Well, good for you.

THIS SO MUCH. Sometimes people have unrealistic expectations about how babies' genders should be treated. Like yeah, I totally 100% agree that when the baby grows up it should be able to decide it's own gender (and even before that it can decided what toys it wants, etc.), but when it's literally a baby it can't make those decisions, and I would venture to say most parents aren't trying to oppress the child by putting them in girl/boy clothes. :| It's not as malicious as it's sometimes made out to be.

To be honest, I really don't agree with the "#notallmen" thing. In my opinion, it's true, not all guys are like that. Plus, I hate how most of the "I hate white people" posts are made by white people. Also, Tumblr makes it seem like being straight is a bad thing. :?

I saw a similar post about pets like "kind reminder not to use gender pronouns for your pet because they can't communicate their preferred pronouns to you" or something and tbh I doubt pets understand what you're saying or really what gender is, I kinda doubt they care tbh, not in a rude way but surely they'd react in some way if their owner or whoever said something bad if they can even understand

Just remembered another thing that annoys me about tumbr, and that is the overuse of the word "gross" to describe something they find problematic. This person is gross, that person said something gross, ew gross, everything is gross.

If you want to call out something you find problematic, okay cool. But can we find a new damn word and retire "gross" the way DIAF, what is air, and epic have as well?

But...gender is manmade. Pets don't understand it. They don't give a shit. They see "male/female", not "boy/girl", so why make things more complicated by referring to them all as "it"?!

There's "Political Correctness", and then there's this absurdity expressed only by radical teens who are desperate to feel perfect and accepting and intelligent and, thus, superior.

I always thought that post about pets was taking the piss to be honest? Like the one with "plantkin" where everyone thought it was serious even though the original poster was being sarcastic.

^^^ At first, I too thought it was a joke, but you never know when it comes to tumblr...

Edit: whether or not the OP was being sarcastic, there will be people who agree with the statement.

at first I thought they were joking and went onto their blog and judging by their blog they weren't joking, also they're not even a troll, they had links to their personal (and normal) Twitter and posted selfies.
I don't see what these people are trying to achieve most of the time because they seem so fixated on little things eg not calling your pets by gender pronouns instead of actual big things

I thought for real they were joking! But apparently they're serious and that's kind of... sad? Just feels like they're making it even harder for actual people to be taken serious.

And I just stumbled across this post:
I'm not evem into BDSM, but it still pisses me off.

It's so hard to get people's attention on tumblr. I should've chosen youtube for my social media assignment, but no, I chose tumblr. Although, it is my fault for choosing tumblr when I don't know the culture and thus, can't get likes or reblogs.

The whole "gender equality" thing kind of bothers me. Just shut up already.
And fandoms. I am not a part of any fandoms because I honestly think they are just really annoying. It's just stupid and overdone. I unfollow anyone who posts mass amounts of fandom crap but it's still every other post on my dash.

But I have seen an increase of people asking for donations on there, and a few times I've seen these people their own post after reaching their goal and implying they're appreciative but they need more. And the vibe I get from tumblr sometimes is... if you in any way disbelieve anyone's story, you're a horrible person. But sometimes skepticism is a good thing, and in all my years in previous fandoms and message boards, many people who asked for donations end up found out for faking a sob story. Not to mention I wonder how many of these people donating money are teens using their parents money unbeknownst to them.
This is the one thing I absolutely hate the most about tumblr, and I've had to unfollow so many blogs for doing this. Now they're making fake blogs to reblog their posts begging people to click their ads, making fake posts that just lead to their ads. It's ridiculous.

Edit: I also wanted to add that another thing that I can't stand on tumblr is users posting their referral code for feature points claiming they "already got x amount of money" yeah because you get half the points your referral gets. It's shady as hell and annoying.
