Anonymous said: @Hat- What would you think about having an ex-otherkin on your podcast? Just wondering.
That would be super interesting. Dunno when the next podcast is going to be, but that would be an interesting side to hear from, for sure.
The familiar, and completely unsurprising results of a survey done in 2013 of TumblrInAction’s userbase: most of them are straight white men in their early 20’s
You know, you could at least link to the most recent demographics survey.
I hope they realize that they’re the reason my stress levels have risen to astronomical levels while being on this goddamn site.
But I’m sure they think it’s another badge of honor.
Can’t blame me for trying.
Nah, still not feeling it.
Anonymous said: What about Tumblr makes you angry? Why don't you just block things as they come up on your dash?
Because there exists an entire subculture that is bigoted and hateful, preaches these things, and gets excused because you’re not allowed to question people who take a moral high ground.
Because I can’t talk to my friends about this shit because they feel “attacked” when I ask them if they ever question the shit they reblog.
Because my name gets slandered because of my affiliations, despite the fact that I’ve made multiple attempts to have peace and respectful discussions.
Because I’m sick of being in an environment that has no self-awareness, so I’m getting out, for the sake of my own sanity.
I’m going to extend my Tumblr hiatus.
It feels good to not get angry every time I come here.
If you want to stay in touch, send me an ask or something. I’ll answer those.
Korra and short hair, huh?
Where have I seen that before…?
So remember when thehat2 said they "care very much when our members harass people. We don’t want to be associated with people like that" and invited me to “feel like debating us on any of these points, feel free to do so in the /r/TiADiscussion subreddit.”
Yeah, right now there is a person on their TIADiscussion board, the one I should feel free to go to, who states, and I fucking quote,
Just a reminder in case anyone actually thought thehat2 gave some sort of fuck about being “associated with people like that” or did not tolerate harassment. Their members gloat gleefully about harassment and hope said harassment causes suicide. They shouldn’t be “associated” with people “like that” because they are the people like that.
Hey, how about reporting comments like that next time instead of making passive-aggressive jabs at my character because of dumb shit that people say? I had no idea that was said, and had it been reported to the mods, the fuckhead would’ve been banned earlier.
Also, notice that it’s been pretty well downvoted by the community, and the reply immediately under it is, “Okay, I feel like you’re straying into “fucking crazy” territory.” So much for TiA approving of that kind of mindset, yeah?
