Unnaturally colored hair

I get the association between having colored hair and tumblr, so I don't deny it exists. I'd like to dye mine, I'm young and figure this is probably the only acceptable time to do it, but don't want to be assumed to be some kind of walking Minorities Defence Force

Just keep it to one or two colors, not ten, and don't change it even month. And don't be pastel goth. Or wear nerd shirts.

Same. But I must admit, it has helped me to get away from arrogant people lately.
And even if I'm being a shallow asshole, all the people I meet last year with pastel colours in their hair have been whiny passive-agressive bitches… oh, and a "they/them pronouns plz" tumblr specimen.

I have light pink hair and dress (non-pastel) goth. I was on a train in Japan and heard some white guy start explaining trans tumblerinas and their hair to his friend.

I wish I wasn't the type of person who starts disliking series when the fandom gets out of control but it keeps happening every time something I read gets an anime adaptation. It's kind of weird going from getting into shows because they're popular to discovering a good manga series and witnessing its fanbase turn into some lovecraftian tumblr monstrosity as soon as it gets animated.

I have a feeling Bungo Stray Dogs is going to get raped next season, it's not a series I really even care about but people are going to go batshit over shipping bishie japanese novelists.

Same experiences, anon. I've been dying my hair bright colors since i was 15 (29 now) and tumblr definitely ruined unnatural hair colors for me. I'm always afraid if I dyed my hair purple again with my current short hair, I'd get mistaken for a tumblrina, even though I'm not fat. Ugh… hate them so much.

Different anon, but that's good to hear, as I just bought it on Steam. I do tend to get put off when something blows up because my friends tend to latch onto trends, and although there's nothing wrong with that it often results in them basically trying to tell me how I will feel about said trend when I finally experience it, even though that could only end in disappointment. I like being pleasantly surprised, and I've managed to completely steer clear of the fandom so I think I'll end up liking Undertale just fine.

On the topic of colorful hair, girls with short hair have been ruined for me as well. I have a friend with short hair, she just recently dyed it purple and it's hard to look at her and not be reminded of horrible SJW shit. Doesn't help she recently put on a little weight and has tattoos + a septum piercing. All of that aside thought she's a total babe and herself hates the Tumblr SJW/"feminism" bullshit.

More on topic, tumblr has definitely ruined indie music for me.

Not to mention all the "shipping" stuff I see, which is great when it's dealing with characters, but when people are shipping ACTUAL PEOPLE it just gets weird and uncomfortable.

I'm the same anon. Every time my favourite series gets an anime adaptation it's just forever ruined. The worst case being Hetalia, I used to be a huge fan of the manga and the fandom was very small and sensible, if you could believe that looking at what a monstrosity it became.

But back then it was like this at its worst

>"omg these two are gay don't you dare say otherwise REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE"


Now it's

>"these two are translesbians, this is nonbinary, she is a transwoman, they are aromantic demisexuals, she's an asexual, and he's a demiboy, she's canonly overweight AND black and if you disagree you're a transphobic racist bigot and we will drive you to suicide with callout blogs, hate anons and emails to your employer uwu"

This exactly. There's a character in the video game Life is Strange who, to sum it up, is an abuse-victim-turned-kidnapper who has done some seriously fucked up stuff in the game, and there's a section of the fandom that really liked him – mostly because there were very few male characters in the game, and they thought he was cute – and people on tumblr were constantly hating on his fans, saying they (the fans) were going to get themselves killed/raped one day because they had no sense of self-preservation, because obviously it's impossible to separate fantasy from reality and like/be attracted to a character who you would never associate with in real life.

I was literally just thinking about this:

Dyed hair.

I used to want pink hair and to try a rainbow of colors, just to be experimental. I used to think normal hair dye was kind of boring, but now I refuse to go outside it. Pre-tumblr it was actually kind of rare. The most I'd ever see is the occasional cosplayer or someone alternative like a goth with bright red hair or something.

Now it's just fucking everywhere. It literally has become the symbol of someone being crazy and it's actually true. Literally everyone I have met with dyed hair has not just been terrible, but crazy. Just batshit and insane in their worldviews and stances. I think it's just narcissism from having a special snowflake dye, partially.

I also hate people that say they look "so anime" but they're SJWs who also hate anime and shit. Hipsters and SJWs ruin everything.

I was going to say the same thing, although I watch anime since I'm a child and I feel like tumblr is mostly ruining recent anime. Then again I've unfollowed so many shitty blogs that maybe I'm missing the ones ruining fandoms nowadays.

It's the same thing for video games. I noticed with the Megami Tensei series: Persona 4 and Catherine are talked about avery often because of their problematic content (transphobia and homophobia in both, which is wrong, the serial killer being /r9k/ incarnate in p4, and talking about this like they're not even spoilers), but as I'm playing more and more of the previous games or less-known one, and there aren't any sjws talking about them, only people who like the games for what they actually are. It feels great not having to see posts about how someone likes a character "but not because they're [insert problematic things here] it's because they're well-written I'm not [insert same problematic thing here] I swear!!1!"

Another unrelated thing, tumblr totally ruined the concept of "love yourself, treat yourself" and self-acceptance/self-confidence. These people don't know how not to seem like annoying show-offs instead of confident people. It's the most visible during "blackout" days or any similar days for other minorities. Sometimes they even show off because of other people's accomplishment who are unrelated to them, except for being from the same minority as them. I'm not sure how to explain how and why exactly it pisses me off so much though.

>>55592
I barely know anything about this game but I think you might be talking one of my friends' favorite character from this game. She complained about something similar once when she tried to convince me to play Life is Strange or to watch a playthrough.

Where do you all live? Dyed hair is just dyed hair here, the average person knows nothing about Tumblrinas, SJWs and transtrenders and wouldn't make that connection. If you got short dyed hair, you'd get mistaken by bigots as a lesbian at most.

No. 55605

It's mainly recent anime that has been ruined, you're right, but not only. I mainly follow blogs that rarely interject their personal opinions into things (and when they do I agree with them) but it's mainly when I go actively searching for new content that I see sjw "Misato is a sexual predator!" "Don't sexualize the Evangelion kids it makes me uncomfortable uwu" while simultaneously obsessing over Kawoshin because it's a canon gay couple, even though they're still 14/15 years old. Fetishizing gay kids is TOTALLY FINE though because the person who owns the blog probably identifies as gay since they are a genderqueer girl who is into boys.

They always seem to forget that all of the characters are Japanese and stories take place in Japan unless stated otherwise so they will draw characters as black/South Asian/Indian/anything that is not white or Japanese doing things in not-Japan thus erasing their precious POC characters in favor of having other, more oppressed POC characters. The same people who talk about cultural erasure will go on to erase all semblance of Japanese culture from their fav anime, maybe because certain aspects are problematic to them, or maybe because they are so Americentric that they think any character with white skin is white. Or maybe they feel like they are appropriating Japanese culture by drawing a girl in a yukata or something.


Any pairing you like that is not 100% light and fluffy or same-aged people is supporting abuse. And also every character is an asexual demiboy because like…they didn't have sex in the show or something? They wore pants once? They made a joke about wanting to be the opposite gender once? All tomboy characters are now trans as well.

But in general the thing that bugs me is just how overbearingly into the shows tumblr fandoms tend to be, but on a completely SHALLOW level. Like, please write tons of theoretical essays about an anime or manga for me to read, or analyze some seemingly unimportant detail, or something. I love that shit. But I don't care about headcanon #63726 that deals solely with gender and sexuality of characters. If that is all you got from the series then I don't know what to tell you. Look at what the tumblr JJBA community looks like. A series with decades of lore and yet tumblr just wants to ship them all and call them trans because they are flamboyantly styled.

I realize all of this can apply to most things tumblr gets its grubby hands on.

But as I said it rarely actually pops up and bothers me personally, and there are plenty of great artists and blogs on tumblr. And it's certainly not JUST tumblr that has made me generally avoid other anime fans. I think as someone who has been actively into anime since the mid to late 90s it's been a bit frustrating to watch things evolve as they have. Yaoi fangirls nyaaaing all over the place and cosplaying their yaoi schmex used to be the shame of the anime community but now we have this shit.

This shit makes me so mad. The same applies for effeminate men like Kuranosuke.

These people uphold gender roles and stereotyping as much as the conservatives they hate.

Thank god I learned very quickly how to avoid the idiots in the Jojo fandom once I started the anime. I find it amazing that so many tumblrinas like the new trendy animanga even though these series have a bunch of things they hate in them, like fanservice with underage character for example. I'm only counting NGE and JOJO because of the Rebuild movies and the recent anime adaptation, respectively.I wonder if it's because they're trying to stay relevant or if it's because they genuinely like these things but they don't want to seem problematic for loving something that isn't 10000% in the eyes of some of the craziest bloggers (you know, the ones who make a lot of callout posts because somebody reblogged a fanart of a character who is the evil antagonist or something).

I remember any angst fanart/fanfiction used to revolve around either domestic violence or self harm. Those were the big things.

Dangan Ronpa. It was a pretty cool game that was brought to light in the west by a Something Awful member but Tumblr fucked it up so bad when the anime came out.

I've been surfing the fandoms actively since 2000. There were no limits back then, nobody got called out for being a transphobe/racist/whatever and you could write just whatever sick stuff came into your mind and people either ignored it or laughed at it. I honestly don't remember coming across crazy SJWs back then on the internet until like 2011 or 2012. Sure there were shipping wars and headcanons but the headcanons back then were pretty much limited to "he's gay and he likes this guy". Not "he's an asexual PoC transboy". Nobody gave two fucks about video games being "sexist", the girls played them just the same and never felt attacked. We just liked the jRPGs that had pretty boys catering to us.

The callout culture existed before the 2010's but it was mostly for those that were actually considered to be whacked, like the people who were otherkin and 50 shades of crazy. And the "callouting" was limited to a thread on Something Awful or a humor article on some other satire site like Encyclopedia Dramatica. It ended there. Nobody was fired or attempted suicide, people just laughed at their shitty Sonic OCs. Pretty similar to what we have here on Lolcow now. Not "this bigot tweeted ableist slurs, SJWS ATTACCCKKK".

And this is what fucking kills me. After over 15 years of being online and relying on the Internet to be the ultimate zone of free speech and expression, you see people like fucking Shmorky siding with the SJWs and coming out as a genderfluid. Plebcomics is doing stuff that's a LOT tamer than what we had in 2001-2006 and she gets shadowbanned on Tumblr and tons of hate anons who got her fired by harassing her employer.

So yeah, tumblr is ruining the whole internet for me. I'm thankful for places like lolcow where things can be kind of how they were since most places are now either coddling to the SJW feefees or the gathering of the most paranoid /pol/tards blaming jews for everything.

This.

I enjoy traps because they are boys in dresses, that's all about it. Not some alternative genderfluid transgender xD bullshit.

I have some serious personal grudge against that place. It ruined several of my friendships and relationships. I can't go talk to my close friends about some subjects at all that I would had debated with them before because tumblr brainwashed them, and I know they'll answer me with tumblrina buzzwords. It confused one of my boy friends into thinking he is a girl when he doesn't suffer gender dysphoria (because for tumblrinas if a boy is not a horrible person or masculine then it means he is a girl). I'm legit worried about a girl I know because she started a hormonal treatment and it gives me vibes what she's going through it's just a phase and she's gonna regret it in the future. I had also this girl I knew that was kind of a (forgive my weeb) senpai to me. She had been in my main fandom for years before i got into it and she was super reliable. I didn't talk to her very often, yet she was that person you know you can say something to her at any moment and she will answer you back. She would even give me advice if she saw I needed it sometimes. Tumblr fame turned her into a self-absorbed cunt. She's unrecognizable compared with her self of 3 or 4 years ago. It hurts me even remembering about it.

Dangan Ronpa are fun games, I wanted to check it out on Something Awful but once I had enough time to do that they blocked the translation or something because of the people from tumblr spamming. I decided to play the games instead and before I could do that a bunch of fuckers wouldn't stop posting spoilers without tagging it as such because they wanted to point out the transphobia or ableism in the game.

Holy crap, even the older games? And I thought it was too obscure. I blocked a lot of blogs that annoyed me in the persona tags and I filter my search results carefully on tumblr so maybe that's why I missed them. To be fair though, maybe some people only have European consoles and can't play all the games because of this (like me for example, I fucked up, no Raidou 2 and for me), but I really doubt this is the case for most fans on tumblr. What I do these days is talk about the games on /smtg/ and talk about which games I'm going to start or finish on my blog, so I think it helps avoid the idiots too.

I mean personally I only like two best friends because they're chill, genuine and their fan base is tame.

I remember seeing a fight on tumblr about a character from Dark Souls (Gwyndolin) who, it is stated in the game, was born male and raised as a daughter, and now appears feminine (wears a dress, etc). That's pretty much all that is directly stated, because Dark Souls is known for having vague lore that is up to player interpretation, and there are people on tumblr who think that if you interpret Gwyndolin as a very feminine male as opposed to a trans woman, you are taking part in trans erasure. I always interpreted Gwyndolin as a boy, but now the way I view an already-vague character in a video game makes me "problematic". SJWs just want everyone to feel bad about themselves.

Also, there was a girl on tumblr who was sexually attracted to the Cleric Beast from Bloodborne, but since she's a lesbian she became convinced the Cleric Beast was female (because wanting to fuck a boy monster would be too weird, I guess), despite the fact that it looks like pic related and clerics are historically male, not to mention there are plenty of canonically female beasts within the game. She would get actually angry at people who referred to the Cleric Beast as male.

typing in lowercase. it seems kind of anal to even mention it i guess, but if you think to back before tumblr got big, this was just a normal way to type. conveyed a bit of informality and a relaxed, casual tone, that's it. now the association with tumblr is too strong to bear…

Which could be why, in my opinion, various websites (particularly the chans) shifted towards using uppercase properly. Or maybe I'm just looking too deep into it.

Typing in lowercase as well as saying "u" and "ur" are heavily associated with tumblr for me now.

The thing that really irks me about it though is that these people can sometimes draw very well- but they don't put their talents to good use, and instead draw the Game Grumps fucking each other in the ass. Some of them clearly have skill but choose to draw fandom-related or 'Tumblr safe' (ex. fat trans girl in pastels).

Yeah, even the old games. It's not super overt since the series is niche and most people just wanna reblog art, but I saw some random "Tamaki is trans" "Zayin is otherkin" type things. Then there's Raidou being a gay sex symbol even in Japan so things get kinda weird there. Most of it is definitely centered around more recent titles like Devil Survivor or even Digital Devil Saga though. I'm also referring to the attitudes of people in the fandom themselves. I got to know a lot of them and watch them spiral into insanity over a few years, so even if they aren't pushing any politics on SMT at any given time, they're still incredibly high-maintenance people I'd avoid. The ones who weren't like this were some posters who frequented /smtg/ back in the day. I'm not sure if any still do or even if they're still around since the general died out a while ago.

I definitely understand the suffering of the Europoors, but what I meant were the older titles that can be easily emulated and have translation patches, or games like Soul Hackers that got recent ports. There were a few times I wanted to talk mechanics or what demons someone ran with on a few titles, then they'd straight up admit they never played it and only said so to look cool or they gave up and watched an LP instead.

Look into emulating Raidou 2. I think like Raidou 1 it runs pretty well in battles and the overworld, just lags in the city. It definitely emulates better than DDS1&2 though.

>>55712
Not even just YouTube LPs, but this one girl I knew only read those SA forum LPs that are just images with text. She had no idea how to play the games and had virtually no context for anything, then tried to act superior to people and make fun of them when they posted about struggling at whatever point in the game. She also took anything anyone from SA said as the gospel truth and got super angry if you even lightly criticized them.

Back before LPs became this huge personality cult I used to think they were nice for getting a look at a game before you bought it, or seeing any content you might've missed on a playthrough, or just looking up an old game you could never beat and seeing someone else fly through it. What the fuck happened?

OT but before pixiv becoming popular, back when the megaten webring was really active there used to be a shitton of Raidou porn on the internet. I swear one of the first things I ever downloaded from 4chan was a folder from Megaupload that was a gigabyte of Raidou art and doujins, it's a shame it probably disappeared in the purge years ago.

I'm kind of glad I got into Megaten a while ago (even knew a couple people older than me that bought the ps1 games waaaay back when they were kids) because I finished playing through most of them before the internet fandom became a disaster.

I can't believe I missed all of this. I'm kind of new to the games actually, since I didn't have a PS2 when the PS2 games were released and I didn't speak and understand English well enough back then, anyway. I finally got a PS2 though and I ordered DDS1 and 2 and Nocturne, but I haven't ordered Raidou 1 yet. I'm only playing the games released in Europe right now and I'll move on to emulating once I'm done with them, but that's because my computer is a piece of junk.

The games are so unknown where I'm from that I can only talk about them online, and now I know how to avoid the worst parts of "fandoms", so it could have been worse for me. I think more people are talking about the series now that SMT IV Final has been announced.

I got into DR a little after the initial hype died but before the anime came out and I loved it. The whole "chihiro and sakura are trans uwu" bullshit didn't make it into my vision until much later so I thankfully missed it. DR is all kinds of ~problematic~ with violence, murder, manipulation, mental illnesses and whatever, why are these people even into it?

And that's actually my main problem with SJWs. Instead of supporting things they like and feel comfortable with, they police around other people's interests and want everything to feature an obese transgendered PoC disabled person and a cast with only marginal minorities. Do you see bullshit like Gen Zed getting a big applause from them? No, because they won't be satisfied with anything they've given. They ignore it completely and instead focus on things meant for OTHER focus groups and demand them to change for their needs. This is because they don't actually give a shit about the social justice cause but their own need for self-importance. And because it's a profitable source now, a lot of people cater to them and give into their needs because they're the loudest and most aggressive, all the while ignoring the original audience who feel alienated by it. This happened with a game project called Mighty No. 9 which was a crowdfunded project by the creator of the Mega Man series, they hired a fullblown SJW bitch as the western community manager and she started banning everyone who disagreed with her SJW thoughts on the forums and tried to change the main character to a female avatar of herself. Thus, they lost a lot of support.

They're just a product of the generation that has been taught to demand their rights but not make any compromises. Maybe someday this bullshit will subside and video games, comics and anime will return to obscurity.

Same anon, same.

My latest one is Heneral Luna. It's a nice biopic and all, but man does it feel so incongruous going on tumblr (or on facebook, so many people at my school are tumblr defined and I've given up unfollowing them) and seeing people call national heroes, real soldiers "bae". What's worse is that the movie takes place during our country's war against the Americans and most of the fanfics (yeah, of course they make fanfics) and fandom stuff feel so Americanized, even going so far as to call this one man named Gregorio (who was a general and died in a historic stand off against the Americans) 'Greggy'. His nickname is Goyong. Most history books mention this. The movie itself uses the nickname. It feels so wrong calling a man who fought against the Americans an Americanized nickname, idk.

The thing that weirds me out the most is that they treat it as fiction but they take the entire movie as fact, even if the movie makes a disclaimer at the beginning that it's not supposed to be taken as such.

A sidenote: am I the only one that feels that tumblr has a certain American-ness to it? Even users who are neither American nor live in America have that air to them if they're the tumblrina type. I can't really describe it, just that it's most apparent in the lingo and the 'politics' (sjw stuff)

Also, I'm sure I'm not the only one who think that, but I think tumblr ruined comedy/humor/jokes/memes whatever you want to call it. Like, when I started using tumblr I found whatever silly posts on my dashboard funny, but now the humor changed. People became painfully unfunny by spamming the same shitty memes over and over again, and by trying too hard to stay politically correct or something. Once, I stumbled on some blogs run by stuck-up SJWs/fandoms, like dragondicks for example and they were all so painfully trying to be funny it was sad. It's like tthey're trying to stay relevant to some sort of unfunny audience on tumblr. It's hard to express, sorry if it seems vague.

Don't worry, I enjoy the games very much so far! I didn't follow the news for SMT IV because I thought that it would never be available in Europe so I can't say, but at least /smtg/ is more active since Final's announcement than before. Although some people think that Final will be a new edition of IV instead of the sequel/AU it actually is, that could explain it.

Tumblr is definitely americentric. I saw a girl talking about it, she's a bit of a sjw but not as annoying as the other ones. But yes, tumblr is too focused on what happens in the United States. All of the awful social justice they follow is based on the things that go on inside their nation, and the bad thing is they spread it to other countries. I had a twitter friend who was really into social justice (I was a liberal back then, but never a sjw type) and she began to see oppression everywhere in her country. She's only an example, there's a bunch of sjws in South America, most of them middle class young girls who think they're oppressed because a boy called them a name once.
And about Hamilton (i'm the anon you answered), I knew it was going to happen. I mean, all of the """PoC""" actors playing white cis males and females, it was a storm waiting to be unleashed.

>North Africans and Middle Easterns are privileged white people
>although sometimes North Africans become honorary black people to further black americans' agenda, whatever it is
>think Muslims are an ethnic group, white or asian people converting to Islam are appropriating Muslim culture
>white people can't be victims of racism but Irish people and Italians were oppressed some decades ago in the US, so they aren't white anymore according to them
>same shit applied nowadays to Latinos who almost only have white European ancestors, they're fully PoC since white people can't be victims of racism
>All Africans are the same peaceful homogeneous ethnic group
>same shit with Asians
>only white people are violent according to history, even though every country and region of the world has been involved in conflicts to the point where it could be argued that humanity as a whole is terrible
>there aren't any PoC in Europe EVER! Good thing there are terrorist attacks in France, it's not like the PoC population will be attacked as well since they don't exist!!1!
>reading or watching animanga is cultural appropriation/problematic even though people watch American tv shows and movies LITERALLY ALL THE TIME AND ALL AROUND THE WORLD
>sexism is exclusively when men spread their legs while sitting in the bus and women are laughed at when they armpits are hairy, it's not like it's worse anywhere else (although sexism exists in the USA too I'm sure, my point is that it's most likely not damaging the way it is in other countries)

I fucking love LISA. It's honestly kind of an unusual, uncomfortable creepy series, since it's always had those uneasy pedophilic subtexts to it.

Most SJWs are too scared by actual real world issues and would rather make up they're being oppressed, like being an otherkin or fake panic attack. They just roleplay that and can turn it "off" if they want. They often times appear bothered so they can feel special. LISA isn't a game I think you can fake feeling triggered over.

Aahh It's nice seeing other two best friends fans, I hope that channel stays chill and away from tumblr nonsense
Funny how Cry gets those even though none of his fans know what he looks like(I always liked to think he was probably ugly or maybe he just really likes his privacy)I'm sure Markiplier gets those often as well and I can bet most are from the under aged.

But yeah, fanbases(made up of a large tumblr audience) lately have been becoming more and more insufferable. Which is why Steven Universe ; the ultimate tumblr show, has a ton of problems within it's own fanbase. Which sucks because it's a really cute show but sometimes I can't stand looking at without being reminded of it's super shitty fanbase

And here comes another thing I find specially obnoxious about tumblr.

Have you noticed how they will demonize many male characters who aren't handsome or are unattractive?

Like, you have two characters. Two boys. One is handsome, the other is ugly. Both of them have acted like jerks at some point yet they have done good deeds as well.

What is gonna tumblr do? They are gonna put the handsome one into a pedestal ignoring the fact he's/has been a fucking jerk, only taking into account the good stuff he's done. They're gonna bash the ugly one to death ignoring the fact he's done good stuff, only taking into account that he has been a jerk.

Fuck those double standarts. Then these fucking hypocrites come bullshitting at you with their talk about body image/beauty standarts. This shit makes me so mad.

I think modern tumblr will claim the pretty one is an abusive trans boy; he's abusive and left with several mentall illnesses due to being bullied/abused by parents/society for being trans. They'll bend backwards to defend any of his shitty actions because he is a precious damaged snowflake; the other half of SJW will constatnly make call-out posts and sent death threats to everyone who dares to like or ship said character.

The ugly one will be drawn as fat.

Oh my god I just want to add on to this. There was a crazy girl at my school who was the whole tumblr package, Muslim, middle eastern, "trans boy", "mentally ill", went by a Japanese nickname etc. but the best part was that she faked being raped. She'd be an absolute shitlord online, openly shitting on white people and cis people and then claimed she was doing it because she was raped. The problem is that she gave a specific date that she was allegedly raped on and there were no reports of sexual violence on that day. (Sexual violence against minors is also publicly reported in my city but there won't be any details like name or location, just the time). Then she deleted her blog last year and admitted that she faked being raped because she just wanted attention.

Tumblr also ruined the entire concept of "art". Now every tumblrina spits on their Wacom and calls themselves ~artist~. And oh are they overly attached to their shitty ~art~.
One time, last year, I found a nice doodle on Pinterest and saved the pic, there was no mention of the artist anywhere but I wanted to find him/her.
So I uploaded the pic on my tumblr (smol blog with, like 30 followers?) saying clearly in the description that I "do not own this, but since I like it and I'd like to find the author, if you know his/her username let me know so I can edit the post blah blah blah". People press like, people reblog, and finally the ~artist~ comes. Her reaction was baffling. "Ummm ur not allowed to repost other ~artists'~ work, you're not obliged to post here everything you see on the internet, if u dunno the source dont post it, it's not that hard, and even if you write the source it's still problematic since you may get more notes than my original post, so delete it"
Since I was a little bit surprised by this unnecessarily bitchy behavior I asked "Why so rude?" and reminded her that I don't get any money from notes, that there was no way that my blog could make more views than hers, and that she could've asked me to put it down politely, and what happened next? She basically capslocked something we could sum up in "PUT IT DOWN PUT IT DOWN REEEEEEEE TRIGGERED!" and sent her followers after me to inbox me other crazy mad shit. Bitch was crazy, and wasn't even the only one. Half of tumblr ~artists~ behave exactly like this, and maybe even more than half.

It's always mediocre artists who flip out the most. When I used to drawfag, things I drew would get reposted on tumblr all the time and get more notes than any drawings I posted on my blog. It's not a big deal, very few people check out your blog when they see something they like anyway. And it's not like throwing a fit after the fact is going to change much. Messaging someone politely is much more likely to get their cooperation.

The artists who flip their shit about these things remind me of all those nasty girls who used to hang around oekakis back in the day. The deviantart scene sparkledog types. If you drew anything mildly resembling one of their 5000 wolf pictures, they'd gang up on you and rip you apart.

Something that always confused me about these types of people on tumblr too are the ones who wanted more than anything to get a hit post with thousands of notes, then when they finally got that, they'd turn around and complain about it and fake panic attacks about the post geTTtinG NoTES agAIiIN.

Pretty sure that if you can't be sexually aroused, even when you want to, it could be hiding some sort of condition. So I'd say go to a doctor to see if there's anything other than that. Also, being aroused isn't the same as being attracted to, iirc asexuals can be aroused (=body's functions and stuff) but aren't sexually attracted to anyone of any gender ever. Some of them can be in love with someone but still won't be sexually attracted to that person so they could go on dates and get married, whatever, but they'd probably dislike having sex with their SO. At least that's how I understood it and I think it makes perfect sense. When I used to read shitty women magazines there would always be these articles about old ladies (between 90 and 110 yo) talking about how they're virgins and were never married or even in love with anyone and they're glad they have always been single, I guess that's what you could call being asexual.

No previous pictures or captions stated that she had always been Muslim. In one comment she even told a guy that she couldn't speak Arabic.

Truth. We have more art majors than any other major in the humanities (my university is divided into different schools, humanities being one of them) and so many of them go on and on about how they're artists and shit. What's killer is that all their 'art' looks the same since they all do generic tumblr digital art shit, which is probably why a lot of them get culled after their second year (it's the painting-intensive year).

I'm a big Berserk fan but that shit is popular as fuck now, especially with the movies that were remade and now another series or something coming out. It sucks man. Tumblr makes everything worse.

You know what sucks? People only getting into series because of really shitty reboots, like the Berserk and Evangelion movies. It's actually difficult to find people who watched Neon Genesis Evangelion before Rebuild even though it was THE anime series in the english community for, I don't know over a decade?

I've heard that there are people who only watched the Persona 4 anime adaptations instead of playing the games, too.

I watched Evangelion on TV way before the movies were announced, I was in middle school, this anime scared me so much because of some scenes in the last episodes. I noticed that more people were into it because of the third Rebuild movie and Kaworu.

I also discovered Persona and SMT thanks to the Persona 4 anime because SMT isn't popular at all were I live, but at least I played the remake. Some people write long essays and character analysis on Persona 4 even though they only watched the anime, it's so cringe-worthy.

Not too long ago I had an "are you fucking kidding me?" moment when a fic described a character teaching another character about demisexuality–I swear it read like the proselytizing you'd see in Christian fiction.

A few days ago I began reading fic for an older fandom. In a story written twenty years ago a character bemoans the "culture of victimization crap" she sees around her. While I'd like to be able to blame tumblr for a lot (and its echo chamber has deafened the better sense of many) it seems we have been slipping as a culture for awhile now.

Is Superwholock an actual inter-show ship (like, idk, SherlockxDrWhoxDean triage?) Or if it's just for tumblrs that post content relevant to all 3 shows? Sorry if this is stupid, had my Sherlock phase ages ago and never really got into fandoms, always found it weird that these shows are so unrelated to each other

No. 57153

>>57152
That line is almost a throwaway line from a minor character–a high schooler is arguing that characters in the school play shouldn't be interpreted through the lens of the "nineties culture of victimization" and then goes on to read a few lines of the play. Nothing deep or especially interesting by itself except that it shows there was at least the perception by some that there was an issue with how some people were always reading victimization into everything (which seems very tumblr to me). I was a kid in the 1990s so I don't know how widespread this was, but it makes sense that these ideas didn't just spring fully formed from tumblr and that they were touching online communities and fandoms (even tangentially) 20 years ago.

The fic is part eleven in a longer Gargoyles story: "Sterling Silver" by Christine Morgan. You can do a search to find how little of an impact that line makes on the rest of the story. Unfortunately, really old fics like this are usually hosted on webpages with no built-in comments sections–maybe you can find some commentary on the site its hosted on, but it's not super obvious.

OT but if anyone could rec some good Gargoyles fic I'd appreciate it. This story's not bad, but it's not really scratching my itch.

I'm pretty sure Superwholock just refers to the fact that Supernatural, Doctor Who, and Sherlock all got pretty popular on tumblr around the same time, so fans tended to make a ton of fanart such as pic related. The fact that the shows all starred attractive men is probably the main catalyst for the "phenomenon".

No. 57159

Also, this kind of fandom-merging is not surprising, seeing as Tumblr users tend to consist of "shallow" fans, in that they care very much about aesthetics and characters but not much about lore or the workings of the series world.

They also have very loose canon and can easily fit in fanworks and fan speculation/fanon without it breaking the suspension of disbelief too badly. Doctor who and supernatural more so than Sherlock are also really badly written, so even things like OP Mary Sue self inserts aren't too far-fetched. I think they also know their userbase quite well, so are very careful never to outright deny certain ships etc. that are popular.

Speaking of doctor who actually, I've never understood how not-British, and particularly American people like it? It's kind of accepted here that it's a campy show that's supposed to be bad, and the whole nation enjoys it as a nostalgia irony thing. Without that cultural context, it's just a badly written show with appalling special effects.

No. 57166

Honestly, I tried to watch supernatural because everyone was so hype about it. Maybe because of that hype I just didn't see the value. Could be that I was just expected more than it was but I blame tumblr regardless.

I feel a little like a heretic because I don't think that's too bad in itself. I enjoy stuff for shallow reasons too (mainly shipping), so I can't really fault tumblr for that. Though what I find aggravating is they try to pass themselves off as the "truest" fan in the universe, shit on anyone else who doesn't know small irrelevant details or memes (that most likely they only care for shallow reasons, like the "purple shirt of sex" or something dumb like that). I wish tumblr was ready to just accept how shallow it is and get its head out of its ass.

So many fandoms have been ruined by the same fucking arguments being rehashed over and over again, the prime example of this being the south park fandom.

I've been in the fandom for 4 years now, and the same arguments get tossed around over and over again. "Kyman is problematic!" "Style fans are boring to Kyman fans!"

The thing is, all of that instantly goes away when we have any actual fandom drama or when the season is airing. Half the time it just seems like these guys pick fights out of a lack of anything else to do.

Also, the whole sjw infiltration is pretty terrible. The "prettier" character's flaws are tossed aside so that they can become ugu qt boishota's and the uglier characters aren't even given a shot at redemption.

It might be that fighting games are pretty inclusive in terms of POC (the new Street Fighter character who's Brazilian for example was very well welcomed; her boobs are ridiculous but other then that she looks to kick much ass otherwise) even if in the past portrayals of various ethnicities were very much less then PC.

My hypothesis is that there's actual learning involved with fighting games. Accurate inputs, timing, and combos aren't intuitive, you have to learn how to do those. Tumblrinas aren't going to put the time and effort into learning one game when they could play easy to play games instead.

The fgc is also highly competitive and social (tournaments, playing online, etc.) and Tumblrinas wouldn't be able to handle it because muh social anxiety.

I'm a fighting game geek and they do have a lot of plot going on but people just ignore it most of the time. The characters have elaborate backstories all the time, and they're explained in-depth in all the spinoff things. Street Fighter has multiple mangas, animes and movies made about the characters and Guilty Gear XRD had like a 5-hour visual novel-like anime movie that came with the game. But of course watching fighting game let's plays isn't as cool as watching something like undertale because most tumblrites don't even play the game themselves, they just watch someone else playing and commenting on it.

Now, when the game reached America, they just didn't take it and redesigned both Roxy and Poison to be generic male punks because "hitting women is bad".

Street Fighter is a little easier to keep track of since each story is really personal to the character.

I have an irrational anger against let's plays and let's players because of this. Why the fuck would you care about a videogame if you are not going to play it?? I can understand sometimes you can't afford the game yet you want to know what's the fuss about, but I feel they got a lot of people into videogames who wouldn't care about them otherwise.

Let's plays are good if you want to see if a game is worth your money or not, too. I try not to watch too many of them because I find it frustrating to watch a game I want to play even though I know I won't be able to play until a very long time (my best example is Bayonetta, I'd love to play it but I don't have any of the consoles for it yet). Sometimes I watch playthroughs of gaes I already played just to listen to somebody's comments on them, I almost always play things by myself now.

I agree with you on the shitstorms about video games these days. It really feels like the people complaining about sexism or the lack of representation of minorities in video games don't actually play video games or don't know shit about gamers/fanbases. In the West there are gamers of all age, ethnicity, gender and sexual orientation but these people don't give a shit and try to make video games look like an evil hobby because they only sort of know one or two series.

There are a few Let's Players that I love because I'm a gamer already, and they can be very informative regarding games I like and also get me interested in games I've never played. What I do hate is when people watch Let's Players purely because they think they're attractive and then consider themselves "gamers" afterward.

Do you mean this one? IIRC the guy who drew it is pretty chill and wasn't trying to force his trans Buttercup on anyone, that was just the way he wanted to interpret it. I was more bothered by the way he drew Bubbles as chubby lol. Fighting crime is a pretty good workout, I imagine.

Tumbr is ruining magical girls. I fucking hate how they take every single magical girl show and make it all about themselves, shove their terrible OCs in it and rage about their fave "being totally trans!!!1"

The Sailor Moon fandom is a mess. In order to get any attention or approval, you need to draw Usagi as a fat PoC disabled genderqueer autistic sparkling princess in a hijab, there are constant battles over the Senshis' sexuality ("they're all gay because duh, why else would the girls socially interact with each other?!?!!?!??!") and gender ("Makoto is trans for x bullshit reason!!!") and it basically attracts every kind of SJW.
Joke is, Sailor Moon is kinda progressive especially for it's time, and there are canonical gay/genderfluid/poc people but noooo, not progressive enough until you draw them all as 400 pounds morbidly obese red-nosed spaghetti limb figures.

Similar for the Madoka fandom (friendlly reminder that they tried to edit one character's gender to "trans" on the Wiki until the page had to be closed), and all the "OMG teh abusive friendshipppp ;___;" bullcrap is almost as bad as the constant gay/gender arguments.

Don't even get me started on any OCs.


And of course every tumblrina claims to have some special connections to magical girls; it's basically their spirit animal and they're sooo in love!! because they watched an episode of Doremi in the 90's. But since magical girls are "in" everyone tries to hop n the bandwaggon, from SJW to shitty (SJW) artists.

yeah I feel this
Buttercup was always my favorite, ever since I was a kid but for some reason according to tumblr because she's a tomboy, she HAS to be a transman there's no way she could grow up as a regular woman like her sisters. And it's always buttercup too, it's never blossom or bubbles (they always make bubbles fat too for some reason)

Seconding this. Having been a Sailor Moon fan since the 90's I'm appalled at all the tumblrinas who make hijab wearing fat ugly translesbian Usagis and decide that all the girls are lesbians because they act like normal teenage girls and that Makoto is totally transgenderfluid because she's a tomboy uwu. The way they completely ignore the other characters makes me doubt if they have ever even watched the anime or read the manga. I never see anyone mention Fisheye (a canon trans), Kunzite/Zoisite, Fiore or pretty much anything else than Haruka and Michiru. And even Haruka has to be a transman even though she was inspired by the takarazuka revue.

Tumblr ruined Pixiv for me. Maybe it's not entirely tumblr's fault, but I just hate browsing for fanart of certain series and half the results are really bad illustrations from western artists with that certain tumblr style to their work.

Haruka is definitely not trans. She's probably just an average woman, but if anything, Haruka could be interpreted as genderfluid/nonbinary. In the manga at least (my memory of the anime is more hazy) Haruka is publicly known as a male racecar driver and also at times wants to be seen as male, at least in the case of first meeting Usagi and intentionally keeping her sex a mystery for a while, though of course that could just be because she feels it's easier to flirt with Usagi that way. Also, at one point Neptune explains that Uranus has "the strengths of both genders." Obviously none of that actually means Haruka isn't really just a woman who chooses to masquerade as male when it can gain her something, but if Tumblrinas wanted to see special gender crap in the series, they could just look to Haruka without making any shit up about her being trans or other characters being shit they aren't.

It's just another case of Tumblrinas having a shitty grasp on the series they claim to like and preferring to pull things out of their asses rather than use what's much more tangible already existing within series.

Btw, take my advice and use tumblr only when there is literally nothing else to use. And also having in mind all the people there always moves the same, thinks the same and watches the same that is what is a trend in tumblr.

The manga depicted her as a lazy teenage girl who loved food and vidya, and the anime did even more so. I wouldn't mind her being drawn a little chubby, it would fit the canon.

Notice practically all rhetoric on race on tumblr basically is about US blacks in the end. For all the talk on POC being all nonwhites, I've slowly noticed latinos start to be called "honorary whites" by blacks on tumblr and East Asia is started to get shit on. Dare I say it, nonblacks being included in the POC banner only happens if they want to include a few more easy-to-score points in whatever arguments they're making.

I only say all of this because it freaks me out how Americo-centric all of this is, and trying to force it on other countries in the world, most of which are by definition singular-nation-states, seems like it will end in disaster for the USA.

Tumblr has been an easy, semi-anon place for likeminded individuals to converse without fear of actual racist dickheads. While annoying to fans and passersby, I'm glad that tumblr provides a place to let off steam for the people who need that.

As someone who was going through puberty when HP made it big, I was a young teen viewing the characters and ships from the younger person's eyes… maybe that's the case in tgis fandom, too. Saying all shippers are pedos is a bit extreme.

I'm happy to say that South Park doesn't get to much PC shit in the tags, but I have been noticing (and not with just SP) the trend to make clearly WHITE characters black/tan.

It really is a stupid argument. Honestly, most of the time children aren't even written like actual children in media. Writers seem to have a hard time with it,so you either see them acting more like adults are way younger then what they are supposed to be. But even then, they are still fictional. I can see it being a tad bit creepy if you wrote fanfic based on a way young character in a live action series, and even way over the line to draw porn of said actress.
But when you're discussing this sort of matter over a character that is literally pixels, that's when it is ridiculous.

Ironically, the stories they so critique and shit on, are better written than their shitty call out comments and have a lot more of depth and sometimes the plot of the fanfics is more complex than the original series, also some are really long and with a decent amount of followers. They don't give a shit about the stuff the bitch about, most of the time they're just fucking jealous, it happens the same with fanartist "omg how daaare this shitty animu fanart have so many notes while my drawing of trans Steven universe has just one!!??

Preaching to the choir.

I enjoy reading fanfiction. As you say, many stories are incredibly complex and beautiful. Sometimes these stories deal with difficult issues, like a character grappling with betrayal and dealing with the aftermath of being raped. I don't particularly look for stories with noncon, but I have discovered that I like my beloved characters to suffer terribly before they perhaps get their happy ending. I like fics which make me cry; they're cathartic. That's partially why I find the idea of blanket bans of certain literature to be repugnant; who are they to judge something based on a tag?

Even if a rape scene is just for titillation, is it really hurting anyone? Maybe if it was a how to guide on kidnapping, raping, and murdering children I would support it not being easily shared far and wide, but that's probably not the case for most noncon-warning fic.

No. 59586

Honestly, I'm slowly going back into my super weeb phase since tumblr ruined everything. I don't know why, but now I'm back to being a little more carefree and over enthusiastic about things. It's actually really fun! I was heavily into tumblr during the superwholock phase, and I felt so negative all the time. I still like those shows, but I just enjoy them with my friends and family instead of underage weirdos. It's a sad day when 4chan and its derivatives are more positive places that the supposedly "inclusive" tumblr.

The only decent fandom on tumblr is the Shall We Date fandom, tbh.

I find this a little weird, since tumblr is fine with alternative sexual orientations so I figured they should also be against kinkshaming. You'd think they would know that fiction and real life are 2 different things, instead it's like they're literally going back to the whole sex policing thing they're fighting against. Next thing you know, creating and consuming pornography will go back to being a crime.

That being said I wouldn't harass someone that likes him or ships Guts x Griffith it literally doesn't effect me, so spend time seething over a pairing. They should just spend time fawning over their OTP. I miss the old hate the ship don't hate the shipper meme.

Dangan Ronpa. There's a lot of fictionkin in the fandom for some strange reason, and the "Chihiro is trans uwu" bullshit is STILL going on in 2016. (Check the Chihiro Fujisaki tag on Tumblr, it's a fucking trainwreck.) Since the third game, the new anime, and the Steam releases are supposed to come out this year, I fear it'll only get worse…

It's awful when you're a fan of a series or a pairing that has few fics, find some, get excited and then realize they were all written by the same fucking author who always writes one of the characters as trans or nonbinary or some other shit. It's always the more flamboyant/feminine characters, too.

They don't care what actual Japanese people have to say about their own media.

At one point the artist uploaded a drawing of one of the character's (who is a minor in the comic but was aged up in the picture) in a somewhat sexual pose and tumblr lost their fucking shit. They went on this huge witch hunt, called the artist a pedophile and had her deviantart suspended, all because "THE PICTURE MADE THE MINORS IN THE FANDOM FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE!!2!!1"

What would you call galaxy themes, chunky shoes, dyed hair, sometimes shiny tight fabrics, and the whole kind of "tumblr aesthetic"/hipster style before it was even called that? The closest I can think of is it was a little vaporwave (don't know if that came before or after tumblr) and maybe a bit 80's inspired. Did it have a name before tumblr just claimed it for itself?

I'm really sad because I could grasp that style, maybe a milder version of it, long before tumblr ever hijacked it. You'd see it on CD covers and music artists would style themselves with it, and occasionally it'd show up in fashion. Was anyone else like that and wanting to experiment with something akin to the style, and now feel like they can't get near it?

I think the photo in your post is supposed to be seapunk? If you search "seapunk" on Google images, you get similar things. The Wikipedia page for seapunk mentions celebrities wore this aesthetic before. It also mentions it originally came from Tumblr.

The other style you are talking about (platform shoes, galaxy prints, etc.) the closest I can think of to it is 2011/2012 nu grunge, which is like a hipster trendy version of the 90's grunge style. I remember lots of people on Lookbook.nu dressing like that. A lot of those girls had blogs too.

I find it so fucking retarded to repeatedly make someone like Usagi a black character. Once or twice is ok, to see what she'd be like as another race, why the fuck not? But to then go and say shit like she should have been black or that you wish she was so lets constantly draw her this way? No.

Make more black characters then. Make awesome ones so they'll become popular and then you wont be able to get enough of them because they'll be available everywhere.

Then she started having better taste and choosed Guts as a love interest instead (but was still really attached to Griffith), Guts had to rescue her multiple times for the silliest reasons (standing on the top of a cliff ready to jump because "so tired"?

I run a guro blog and everytime I go on a search for new people to follow, I end up on blogs of underage, pansexual, demiromantic trans boys (they/them pronouns!) who also ALWAYS seem to be both otherkin and "neurodivergent". Guro/gore blogs are probably popular among this kind of crowd because the stuff can be seen as edgy, but man. I just want to look at pretty pictures without all the snowflake drama.

Also, being leftist in general. People seem to be forgetting more and more that normal left-wing people exist. Tumblr is completely ruining our reputation and it pisses me the fuck off. I'm a socialist, that doesn't mean I'm a green-haired fatty/feminist/transtrender, or pro trigger warnings or any bullshit like that. I'm a normal fucking person and I respect republicans as our adversaries and believe they have the right to be heard.

i'm not sure how to describe it, but a lot of the communities/fandoms i was involved in consisted of whateversexual/kin 'uwu' sjw snowflakes who loved to brag about being suicidal and always threatened to kill themselves when no one paid attention to them. it's not that they were glamorizing mental health issues and depression, but rather they just took it too lightly.
my mother was clinically depressed and had bipolar disorder and it took us years to figure it out, because she did NOT want people to know. but then tumblr flakes with the same disorders brag about how fucked up they are and how much they want to die? it makes no sense.
there was a seriously unhealthy group of people i associated with and being around them made me feel like shit, but they'd find a way to guilt you into sticking around. i made sure to avoid readmores like the plague.

Ugh, undertale has really caused a shitstorm with the whole Frisk thing, same with the skellys.

Osomatsu-san has been taking a lot of the tumblr shipping heat lately
I've visited multiple matsu-related blogs and almost all of them had "I DO NOT support Matsucest/please don't ask me why" or something similar written in their main description, hell even nsfw fujo artists who drew naked matsus had the same thing on their blogs. I thought that was really interesting, I mean I know it's not everyone's cup of tea but I'm under the suspicion that they're just really afraid of the backlash they might get if they did like it.

Let alone if you're an artist, they'll even call you a pedophile, an abuser, an harasser, and make blogs about you and "your sins" just because you drew some porn featuring some fictional character who happen to be siblings.
Ironically there are tons of rp blogs (or kin blogs, whatever they're called now) that love to make long ass fanfics full of matsucest.

The most absurd part for me is they will present themselves as moral guardians and patron voices for victims of some sort of abuse in denouncing things that normal people would just wrinkle their nose at and call disgusting or stupid.

They can't call something out for being simply gross without having being self-serving. Instead of "sexualizing kids is bad" it's "You're perpetuating abuse and I'm helping victims by telling all my followers!"

I highly doubt people who create or consume undertale porn are neighborhood pedophiles. They were probably young people and teens raised to be accepting and liberal on sex like many of their detractors, so how is it a big surprise they fucking go on to create shotacest or whatever the flavor of the month is.

I deleted tumblr a long time ago so I don't often get bothered by shit on there, but I am fucking mad at their trans/genderqueer/aromantic/asexual/etc etc bullshit constantly popping up in fanfic. Sometimes I'm halfway through a fic (in the m/m category) when I realize the male character has a fucking vagina, it drives me nuts. The other day I read a fic which was, for all intents and purposes, just a regular romantic pwp about two people desiring, having and enjoying sex. But oh wait, one of them is actually asexual, cue a tonne of comments about how great it is that the author understands asexual people can enjoy sex and want to do it and blah blah. What's the fucking point of writing asexual characters in pwp in the first place, let alone if you write them as normal sexual people?

Everything they do is for brownie points and whatever smug sense of self satisfaction they get when they write what tumblr likes. It's telling that they don't just dump anime and go write actual female or trans or whatever characters, they only want to write about cute male bishounen like everyone else.

Oh man, me too although I'm actually just decades late to the fandom. It's great that we don't have unfortunate trans headcanons for any of them but at the same time, I feel like older fic/fanart is too quick to make Duo bottom because of his hair. I don't think he's girly at all but people seemed much more inclined to write him as feminine and submissive.

Feminism used to be reaching for the gender equality by supporting women in their struggles, now feminism is more about babying sexual/gender/ethnic minorities and constantly looking for things to be offended about.

I have no issue with the inclusion of trans women but I hate that tumblr says things like "if you wouldn't sleep with a trans woman, you're transphobic." That's not inclusion, that's creepy pandering. I don't like that a movement that should really be anti-rape and anti-sexual offences tries to guilt women into sex they don't want.

>jewish men built the comic book indistry back when there was no glory in it. superman was a moses allegory. his earth parents should have been jewish, but that was a no go in the goyishe world. he is now jesus, apparently. magneto is a jewish man who said “enough”. goyishe film creators have no idea how to portray his jewishness. his children have been turned into lily white christians, erased of their romani jewish heritage. ben grimm has been made irrelevent. kitty pryde has been erased from her own storylines.

It's just the whole Jewish historical narrative of Jews as helpless victims of tyrannical goyim. Growing up around Jews you grow used to this sort of nonsense.

Jews are just like any other ethnic group. Sometimes they've been in positions of relative privilege and lorded it over others, often cruelly, sometimes they've been victims. But Jews conceptualize themselves as a people unique among all others, it's basically religiously codified racial supremacism. Tikkun Olam and all that.

Best way to deal with it is to remind Jews that they're just like any other ethnic group, this is what they hate most.

Sure mate. Accusing jews of racial supremacism is the number antisemitic argument. Every religion considers itself superior and chosen by god. Christians were pretty pissed that jews didn’t approve of jesus. And before you say : But they could convert to Christianity and they would have been fine !!!! look up the spanish Blood Purity Laws 1391.

Jews pretty much ran the slave trade in the Ottoman Empire, which partially explains Eastern European aversion towards them.

Christianity and Islam are not ethnoreligions though, they are universalist scripturally and for the most part, in practice too. Conversion is discouraged in most branches of Judaism and the Chief Rabbinate of Israel frequently declares conversions null and void for this reason.

>That’s actual religiously codified racism before the term racism even existed.


The oldest anti-miscegenation laws on earth are from China. Fuck off with your horse shit.

Because they sided with the Muslim overlords and enjoyed a position of privilege and power over Christians in the period when Iberia was ruled by Muslim Emirates.

Don't be retarded. There is nothing unique about Jewish suffering, I could conjure up a similar sob-story about the Greeks, but the marketing budget there isn't as large.

I didn't say they were powerful throughout history, I'm saying contemporary American Jews have a hugely disproportionate amount of wealth and power and that whining about fly-over state hicks not liking them (despite half of them being Christ-tards who have been duped into believing the greatest ally narrative) is absurd.

American Jews are by far the single most powerful self-defined ethnic group in America, bar none.

genders.

here's what I dont get.
they act like there are more than 2 genders in this world. that you dont have to conform to them, but then immediately call themselves he/ she/ they/ it/ ze/ what the fucking ever
because they felt like wearing a dress, but still want to be called a boy?
its called crossdressing.
its not like any of them go to get their genitals mutilated through surgery, and then have tons of psychothereapy on top of it all to cope with their transitions–it's just a trend to them, and its kind of disgusting.

I mean every fucking day I go on instagram SOMEWHERE on my explore feed its like:
picture of person with dress on
tons of cleavage is showing
makeup, long hair, tons of bows or sparkles

Caption: He/ They pronouns please uwu

This makes no sense to me, since, if you are crossdressing or crossplaying for that matter, you'd want to be the sex you are portraying, right? What the fuck? I dunno, I'm just really fed up with this shit.

this is the same shit we've had since 2000.

I periodically see handfuls and handfuls of people on instagram getting testosterone when theyve been seemingly 'trans' he/they/him uwu for about 4 months. do they not get that this shit is permanently going to do /damage/ to their bodies? once the fads die and they grow up a little, they might have done some irreversible shit to themselves.

its usually girls => boys and not the other way around for some reason.

I dunno. I want everyone to just shut up and keep it to themselves. its your life, so deal with it privately. If youre so tormented by your body image, why do you have 300 instagram posts of your selfies every day? It just doesnt make sense.

Ao3/Fanfic. Honestly, I love fic. Every since the golden age of HP fics. But now it's like wandering into any damn fandom, "crossgender/genderbend; _____ turned into a cat; translesbian" bullshit. I do not give enough shits about how someone wants to fuck up a cannon character to their whims. I just want to read some nice fluff interspersed with some good smut. Ao3 is the worst of it too by having those damn fucking tumblr tags and 190442 ships allowed. Like goddamn. I can't even search for a fucking fic in Ao3 with my ship without coming across some weird ass tumblr bullshit.

tubblr really ruined anything relating to fact checking for me– because almost all of these people's posts with "facts" are either bias by the author or not fucking true facts.

I think the fanfic writers who almost always write these kind of things are actually a very vocal minority when I think about it. Like I said, sorting fanfics by kudos/likes or comments makes it easier to find fics that are well written with character that don't act too OOC and without all the SJW bullshit. I don't think writing characters as trans is SJW by itself, but the way it's often done makes it look like mostly SJWs writes them. Even in kink memes, from what I've seen, requests about making cis characters trans for no specific reason and weird SJWs shits are mostly ignored. So there will always be good fanfics I think.

Even in kink memes, where you can request sfw fics, I've seen someone complain about how one request was about a character who is a minor even though the request was completely safe for work and it was a fic to give more background to the character and nothing else. A bunch of anons told her to shut up and gtfo because she was a newbie and it was obvious that all types of stories could be requested as long as it wasn't illegal. Honestly, I could go on about how tumblr ruins fandoms all the time by trying to police artists and writers among other things.

GameFAQs.

I was posting about someone who was believed to have had an undiagnosed case of autism. I was very respectful about this person, who had died fairly recently. I wanted to make the point that his autism may have affected how people perceived him and why he was rather misunderstood. But I tripped the auto flag warning with "autism".

I was not too surprised with that since the word can be used abusively. But it had been awhile since I tried to post a no-no word. So I didn't know that the auto flag warning had been updated. I remember it just saying that you were free to make the post but your post would be auto flagged for review by a moderator and that you could be warned or banned if you were found to be trolling/abusive.

What I got was a warning message saying that the term "autism" could be seen as triggering and problematic. Along with the usual spiel about having my post reviewed if I chose to post it.

Triggering and problematic.

I knew right there not to even attempt to tempt fate. So i just used the term "spectrum disorder". Which felt wrong. But GameFAQs moderation has always been kind of bad and I've never trusted the mods to make the best judgements. To be honest I think it's a circle jerk of oldbies at this point.

I asked a friend later and they said they made a similar post some months back and were warned for it despite not using it abusively at all.

So I was right not to tempt fate. This was not on a game board so it wouldn't have been off topic. But I never thought tumblrisms would creep onto GameFAQs.

Normally when I post something that will be auto flagged I leave a note to the mods clarifying what I meant. So far it's never failed to protect me from being warned. But after my friend told me about being warned for using the word in a similar way I am glad I didn't even try to explain myself. Methinks there's some kind of zero tolerance policy against certain words regardless of intent even when you are allowed to post them.

What it really does is make conversations difficult and forces you to use weird wording that might be seen as more disrespectful then the correct words. And if people keep using "on the spectrum" it will be added to the auto flag list anyway as a censor bypass.

But what really got to me was being told that I was triggering and problematic. Nice going GameFAQs. Makes me wonder if it really has something to do with CBS Interactive and if all their sites enforce the same thing with the same warning.

I'm super careful on the site now. They have me paranoid.

I only know the 80s cartoon. But it looks like the newer one has a really toxic fandom. I had heard it was canon that Pidge was a girl in this version. Is that true or is that people from tumblr just making stuff up?

Tumblr also had a bitchfit over that new M. Night Shyamalan film, Split. As you can guess it's mostly self diagnosed DID kids.

When I am uncomfortable with a work of fiction I just avoid it. I don't understand why tumblrinas can't just go that route and respect that a writer or artist has the right to explore their own creativity any way they want. I'm sure if you told the tumblrinas that they couldn't draw fat, hairy legged, big red nosed, vitiligo suffering versions of normal looking characters they'd have a meltdown.

This. I also feel like Tumblr influenced Nightvale as it went on too. In the beginning, Cecil(?) had a deeper, more monotone voice and his attitude about the weird and strange was normal.

Now his voice is higher pitched, he's perky, gushes too much about the scientist, and now finds the strange thinges in this town as weird.

Not to mention the additional voice actors get annoying because half of them can't act. (Tamika Flynn being my biggest peeve. Shes supposed to be a young teen but sounds like a 30 yr old) It's fine of you get one or two voices once in a while because the appeal for me was Cecil being the only voice we heard and played as them.

I stopped watching right around season 5 because it felt like the writers had started pandering too much to SJW/fanfic shit. A lot of people felt there was some sort of lesbian thing going on between Emma and Regina and it felt like they kind of played that up a little. They also started introducing some gay characters, which is fine to do, but not when it felt like they were shoving it in your face for the sake of being "progressive".

who cares? he's a video game character. you can like characters even if they are "problematic".

i'm pretty sure that anon ment that that side of tumblr doesn't see Big Boss as ~problematic~ because they wave all his ill deeds away, blaming it all on his pats. which isn't accepting, liking, a character, it's making excuses for him, to fit their moral standards..

Happens pretty much with every villain character to be honest. I'm sick of people being like "noo they're not problematic they just had a rough childhood!!!" because they can't admit that they like a character who is "problematic".

Pretty dumb when we could all just say "yeah I think this villain is badass and that's fine because fiction is not reality" but that's not good enough for them because they actually believe that every single little thing in fiction has the same or more weight than real-world events.

I wonder how tumblr would feel about Cutie honey, which is also a magical girl show but full of boobs and nudity.
Also Fancy Lala, where there's a canonically gay character, strong female characters and a stay at home dad.

>mfw girl starts taking testosterone and dresses like a guy but says refer to me as they/them idgi

I'm doing the same thing, tbh.

In my case though, it's because I feel like a freak who was never a woman but will never be a real man either. I'm what you might call a "middle of the road" person when it comes to gender, but the brain constantly screams that the body should have been male anyay.

Dunno if that makes any sense or not, but it's my two cents.

Do I have a story to tell you ladiess! now grab a bag of popcorn because this is about to get real. Okay so I dated this guy for over 11 years right we met online (blah blah blah) mind you he is transgender but hasnt come out of the closet so he is basically a "lesbian" yes I am in to tranny men for some reason (I know I am disguting) anyways so my faggot ex gets on to tumblr and he became a TOTALLY DIFFERENT PERSON like he went completely normie on me like he started to go out and do all this stuff and little by little he started to leave me out of his life. I blame tumblr he said because I didn't understand him nor his gender and that we didnt had the chemestry and that my atitude was very triggering and closed minded. I now hate tumblr with all my fucking guts I wished each of those fucking tumblerinas would get raped. I am not even joking, also turns out that he has been seeing one of those individuals and it turns out she is just an ugly cow low rent version of myself. the excuse? that him and her had more similar tastes than we ever did. so there is my story if there ever was a tumblr raid I would so part take in it. I wished that site just died already like myspace did.

a website filled with 14 year old girls posting cutesy feminist quotes ruined your life? nah m8, your lack of communication ruined your relationship. your lack of interest in the interest of your partner ruined your relationship. my SO and i don't have the same political opinions, but its not a big deal if you act like a grown up about it.

> I wished each of those fucking tumblerinas would get raped.

see this edgy shit is probably why you got dumped. i doubt she would be happy to read that, let alone dating someone who spews shit like that. fucking move along anon, you clearly weren't compatible. it ain't tumblrs fault that your ex had different interest as you.

we dated for 11 years and things were fine actually, I was the only one that accepted them as who they were I remember his friends would always make fun of him because he would say he was trans but never did anything about it so they kept calling him "she" I was there when he needed me the most so I guess youre right spewing hateful words wont make my situation any better but I am so angry, I probably need some anger management.

I guess you do have a point there if they wanted to leave they would have left long ago.

Listen anon, I think you need to forget about this person and move on already, drinking poison and expecting the other person to die isn't gonna help you in any way. You need to chill and think about what you want to do with your life, clearly we dont know what really went on here in regards of your relationship, but you're pretty much acting on anger atm, so let it go fam, they sound like a piece of shit for leaving you for something so petty but you do need to work on yourself as well, chill and wish them the best because that's what someone mature does, so grow up anon.

i didn't meant that the quotes were cute. i just meant that they do this thing where they make pictures with quotes in a pastel pink and fill everything with cutesy things like hearts and 8bit shit. i don't know how to explain it, you'd have to see it, but its what all those ""scary"" feminist blogs post so.
