oh my fucking god tumblr get your beliefs in order
if you’re going to deride somebody for doing/saying/believing something then you know, don’t be a hypocrite about it. maybe you changed your stance on an issue—you’ve mulled it over after talking with some people or thinking about it for yourself, and you’ve realised you were wrong or uninformed or overreacting—but it’d be really super nice if maybe you acknowledged that? “i used to think this way too but now i know better?” some people are rude and terrible and ought to be shut down, but honestly when i’ve seen you say the same things, believe the same things (maybe in a less aggressive tone to less of an audience with more social justice buzzwords) you aren’t looking so good yourself. point fingers and ridicule one person when it’s most convenient for you, when you want to impress certain friends, and then completely flip your position when another guy comes along who is more annoying than the first? that’s. bad. that’s bad and wrong and you should be ashamed.
if you pride yourself on being socially aware at least be consistent with it, please. or admit you were wrong the first time. or, you know, don’t lecture about this shit when you’re not totally firm in your beliefs and when you’re really, really emotional about the issue. also learn to pick your targets better, don’t go after obvious trolls and don’t go after people whose stance you don’t actually know. it might help a bit. thanks in advance.
ps. shipping is not real life, authors don’t always write about things that they agree with, fandom is not serious business, shut the fuck up.
