So agree about seeing people freak out over gender identity.
And I like how people scream when something outside the norm is criticized, but people who fit within the norm are considered revolting and shouldn't be allowed to have opinions.
People whose genetic sex and gender line up are told to die ( the "die cis scum" crap)
People who aren't into BDSM or think it's weird are called "vanilla" (why does everyone hate vanilla flavored anything?). And theyre told their sex lives are automatically boring and less satisfying, that they don't love or trust their partner as much as BDSM couples do, or that they don't have a sex life period. As if not having a sex life is morally wrong.
People who aren't vegans are considered pro animal torture, and love watching animals get killed and abused.
White people are automatically boring and racist unless they post explicitly at least 30 times a day that they're against racism or if they identify as some sort of oppressed group.

To tumblr, "normal" means "if you don't do this stuff like the media/government/ambiguous they that is society tells you, you are a freak and don't deserve to live". When in reality normal simply means the average, what most people do statistically. It's not good or bad necessarily, it's just the majority.
So with the former incorrect definition in mind, they attack and rail against anything that is mainstream or considered common human behavior.
It's so funny because some of these people shoehorn themselves into some oppressed category and then demand equality. When what they really want is for everyone to believe exactly what they do. If you think differently you're evil. They demand respect from the same people you bash and demonize for their averageness. They're doing the same thing they claim is done to them.

If you disagree (no matter how politely) you're "cyber bullying" or being judgemental, or youre simply shouted down and called several horrible names. Tumblr is the new reddit. Just a circle jerk of people agreeing with each other and giving pats on the back for ripping the opposing side to ribbons. Not unlike the activity and mindset you'll find on legitimately racist/sexist/whatever-ist sites.

The "vanilla" term is not really a Tumblr thing. I've just started out doing sex work and the fact that I don't do anal, any sort of kink/fetish stuff and basically only do vaginal sex or lesbian sex makes me "vanilla". In gaming, if you have a game without any expansions or mods, that's often called vanilla too. It's just a term for when something is at it's basic form without any add-ons or special stuff, it doesn't devalue it in any way.

There's a tumblr where people send in asks with made up genders and sexualities then the blog makes it "official" eg music easily influenced by music or there's was one that was a sexualy attracted to people wearing perfume or aftershave

I know it wasn't started on tumblr, I just hate the term.
And it does seem to have a semi negative connotation when I hear it. It's synonymous with boring and bland. I don't care who came up with it, I just hate hearing. It's probably a pet peeve of mine since I love vanilla flavor/scent things and it pisses me off that people think it's boring lol.

I never associated the term "vanilla" with anything negative. It's just a description to me. :| Sometimes I feel like people who complain about tumblr are just as "bad" as the ones they're criticizing.
I'd rather drink a cup of acid after chewing on a razor blade.

I can't stand how many post go around saying how awful children are, and basically just need to be locked inside the house till they are adults. Like they are KIDS. They don't know any better, so if anything criticize the parents if they aren't making their children behave properly.

I have a sports tumblr which is mainly hockey-related and the idiots from the Doctor Who/Supernatural fandom tried to take our blogs down via Madden 15 gifs.. it was so idiotic. They made posts ranging from "we have tumblrs to get away from you jocks" and other pretentious shit. I have as much as a right to a tumblr as you do hunty.

I'm also ten-thousand shades of done with the vigilante justice that so many blogs are trying. I'm all for equality and am a feminist myself, but sitting behind your computer and spouting words isn't going to get shit done in the world.

Echoing all the people that are saying the anit-white blogs. I don't really get it. Please note that I'm not referring to posts that point out times in history where white people were responsible for horrific acts (eg. genocide of first nation peoples) and saying that those issues should be ignored or anything. Some blogs just take it to a whole new level
Example: this post/ blog in general

"You must be heartless if you don't have this on your blog!!!!" "This doesn't even go with the theme of my blog but I HAVE to reblog it" reblogging posts about cancer, aids or Ebola isn't going to cure it nor is trying to guilt trip people into reblogging it!!

Ok...this kind of goes into unpopular opinions, but on tumblr I just saw this post of the "aromantic spectrum" and it's things like "doesn't have romantic feelings but wishes they did" and "has romantic feelings but doesn't want them reciprocated" like sorry, I am 100% for freedom of gender identity and sexuality but I feel like romance isn't something so intrinsic, it's really a societal thing and it fluctuates so much from relationship to relationship, like this is just people who want labels to put on their feelings to feel special IMO sorry if that's harsh but...if someone came up to me and said they were "demi-aromantic" I would respect them and that label...like, do you, but to me it's kind of typical special snowflake bs when political correctness goes too far...


(bad grammar, whatever)

I talked to my therapist about all of the whole "has romantic feelings but doesn't want sex with anyone" and "wants sex with everyone but doesn't have romantic feelings" sexualities that Tumblr is pretending exists and my therapist said a lot of people go through that and it's just a "trendy" thing to have a unique sexuality lol. Everyone wants to be special and unique/quirky.

I've never come across these things on Tumblr specifically, but I'm aware of all these dynamics and preferences otherwise. It's just what different people prefer...different lifestyle choices. I guess I don't understand going to these blogs in the first place if you don't like them? I can honestly say that I've never stumbled upon these blogs, but in general if I didn't like a certain topic, I just wouldn't follow those people, much less long enough to become annoyed by them. I guess the reason why I've taken time to comment on this post specifically is because I've ran across nearly everything that others mention annoy them on Tumblr but I've never seen this specifically.

actually I have seen a lot more people getting into daddy/baby dynamics-- like, it's the new trend for teenage girls. In place of bae I'll see a picture of some hot celeb with "he's daddy" under it and stuff like that all the time

^I've seen it for the past couple of years. I'm even guilty of having lolita in my url back in 2012. >_< It only annoys me because it's gotten old... And most of the people who runs those blogs are teenage girls and it makes me uncomfortable.

Really tired of seeing all the "I hate white people" stuff. Countless times a day, I'm scrolling down my dashboard, and I see people ranting about how disgusting white people are, how "all crackers deserve to die" how every white person is the same, etc etc. A lot of things these people post are also forms of misinterpretation; for example, someone went to Target and took a picture of the "Annie" clothing display they have in the girls section and went on to say something like "F*cking white people can never let blacks have anything!" and of course everyone was agreeing and were like "Smh disgusting" until someone came along and found out that there were pictures of black children in the Annie ad, not just white people, but the person who photographed the display just cropped them out so only the white children would show. I also find so many blogs solely dedicated to their hatred of white people and post daily rants about how they're the scum of the Earth. I could go on forever.

I never say anything, because I know I'll just get called a stupid cracker, but :|
