My tumblr Eulogy

You might have noticed recently that I’ve been posting quite a lot of ranty text posts about things I’ve seen around this website, usually to do with values like feminism and sexism etc. It kind of worried me how often I felt the need to write these things and that has a lot to do with why this is probably the last post I ever make on this website.

I don’t think I’ll be able to explain it fully because I’ll just keep coming back to it to add something I’ve forgotten, but the basic gist of it is that I find this website so dangerous and it’s starting to genuinely scare me. The amount of posts I see from people who think they’re not good enough and make jokes about their flaws (most of which shouldn’t be joked about in the first place) isn’t half as bad as the amount of notes these posts get. Thousands of thousands of people who are okay with being unhappy all the time just because they think they’re part of some special club on tumblr full of people just like them. I might not have worded that right, but anyway.

Going back to the feminism/sexism thing, I’ve noticed that a lot of the people on here who claim to be ‘feminists’ actually don’t know the meaning of the word, and make countless jokes about how the male gender is inferior and make us feel generally awful about ourselves. I must’ve unfollowed about ten people just for reblogging that sort of thing.

I also hate the fact that, just like on Facebook with likes, people bully other people for having different opinions by reblogging/liking posts about them. A lot of the people on here need to look at what they’re doing before complaining about it happening to themselves.

This post is getting harder and harder to write because I keep remembering loads of different reasons why I fucking hate tumblr these days. At the start it was really fun and a good pastime but now it’s crossed the line and I end up needing to fish through all the self harm and depression jokes in order to find stuff that’s actually what I want to see. What I signed up in the first place to see. I haven’t actually posted in over a week to see how it went, to see whether I desperately missed it or felt the need to come back sooner, and to be honest I didn’t even notice it wasn’t there most of the time. I actually watched a whole season of a TV show in three days, something I’ve never done before (maybe except in summer 2012), so maybe that’s down to not being distracted by this.

My reasoning behind this massive text post is that I can’t ignore the fact that this website has been a part of my life over the last three years or so, and I feel like I need to explain myself properly, even if no one even reads this. Just for my own reference really.

The long and short of it is, I feel like this website is dangerous for people who are gullible enough. And unfortunately a lot of the people here fit that description perfectly. I’d encourage anyone just to take a week off for themselves and see how much better they feel, because to be honest even the in last fifteen minutes I couldn’t wait to get away from here again.

I’m gonna keep my blog open because I might come back to have a flick through every now and then. There’s nothing I didn’t reblog that I wasn’t proud to have on there, so I can’t see a reason why not. I’m gonna log out for good now. It felt good writing this. I do exist elsewhere too, mainly with the same username, so say hello or something!

Goodbye

Does anyone else have like several songs that they love but are constantly skipping because the atmosphere has to be just right and you have to be able to completely immerse yourself in it for those few minutes without any distractions
