I made this in response to another post but I’m going to put it in its own because Tumblr sorely needs it. I’ve seen too much angry and evil bullshit on my blogroll today. I can’t take it anymore.
I get people are upset about the inequality in the world. I have had to face some of it myself. We all have had to in one way or another. No, not all in the exact same way, no, not the exact same thing, but we are ALL HUMAN BEINGS TRYING TO FUCKING GET BY in the world.
I see posts from all sorts of people from all walks of life in all shapes, colors, genders, nationalities, religions, creeds, you name it, and they’re all raging about hating an entire group of people of their choice. They blanket everyone under certain terms, shame them for being who they are, for just EXISTING, and accuse them of the most horrible shit just because they happen to share the same variables as a person of their particular group who did something nasty. Even though they themselves have done absolutely nothing wrong.
Yes, the world is an unjust place. Yes, some people are terribly cruel… My god, I have known some. But would you want someone blaming your entire group of people because of what one person did? Or because you don’t like that group in general?
Nobody deserves blind hatred, shaming or death threats. NO ONE. We are all trying to fucking get along on this stupid fucking Earth. WHY ARE YOU MAKING IT HARDER?
What if your ONE INSTANCE of being an asshole to someone is enough to set them off? What if they think about suicide because you sent them an anon with “GO DIE!” in it? What if they start being racist or phobic because they got bad treatment from your group? You are destroying your own attempts at changing things for the better. There is no progress. Just stagnation or even more rot.
DO NOT BE MEAN TO PEOPLE.
YOU WILL FIND THAT IF YOU TOOK THE TIME TO JUDGE A PERSON INDIVIDUALLY RATHER THAN BLANKETING THEM AS TERRIBLE PEOPLE WHEN YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW THEM…. YOU MIGHT FIND COMMON GROUND WITH THEM.
HOLY FUCK, YOU MIGHT FIND A FRIEND. IMAGINE THAT.
THIS IS FUCKING TUMBLR.
WE SHOULD ALL BE HAVING FUN AND SPREADING FUCKING CAT GIFS EVERYWHERE. NOT SHITTING ON EACH OTHER.
