a thing i really hate about the tumblr community is how it glorifies minorities.
over and over i see someone’s post saying something along the lines of ‘stop getting at straight/cis/white people just for existing’ and then someone else (usually cis white and straight) telling them they don’t understand and have no right to tell anyone to have respect for them, that straight/cis/white people can’t possibly understand what it’s like to be oppressed, and therefore deserve to be told their lives are easy.
guess what, tumblr. black people can be racist dicks too. queer people can be horrible people. someone being a minority group, or whatever the ‘accepted’ term is on this community now, does not mean they are automatically deserving of my respect and worst of all better than me, because people ‘like them’ have had hard times.
i am tired of being told to feel guilty for my skintone, sexuality and gender. i don’t make people feel like shit for things beyond their control, and i’d appreciate it if the tumblr hivemind did not do that to me.
it’s almost becoming as if you’re not accepted here, unless you’re non-white, and anything other than hetrosexual.
y’all are fucking this whole ‘equality’ thing up.
do you ever say something that actually took some courage to say and then the other person doesn’t reply how you wanted them to and makes you feel stupid so then you’re just so embarrassed and regret saying anything?
