  • liking a piece of media does not automatically mean you think it is perfect or agree with its creators
  • even if you are not openly critical of it
  • because you don’t HAVE to be openly critical of it
  • there is an enormous difference between being an apologist for something and wanting to dwell on the good parts of a thing you like because it makes you happy, please stop conflating these two things
  • not talking about the flaws of a thing does not mean you do not recognize the flaws of a thing
  • nobody has to apologize for liking what they like and nobody should be shamed for liking a thing
  • your fave is problematic too
  • also
  • you are not a better person than someone just because your favorite piece of media is less problematic than theirs
  • you aren’t

 

Dude, yes.

Added to: just because I don’t talk about it on Tumblr, doesn’t mean I don’t talk about it at all. Just means I choose my area of discourse. 

You don’t have to believe x thing is problematic at all just because Tumblr believes it is. A social media site full of people who lack real life experience and valuable education is not the ultimate judge of morality. Decide for yourself, don’t submit to groupthink.

I am a Person that believes Tumblr should abolish its policy of Shadowbanning “Undesirables”.

Does this statement apply to you? Reblog it and be counted. More information here.

Shadow banned at 300 followers a year ago

2,012 followers now

It is bullshit though, I remember back then fake claims of me sending death and rape threats, of course with no proof, where I had received some myself which I saved but nothing was done. Its sad when tumblr cant out right ban you for breaking rules because you never broke them but is still forced to deal with you because some whiny cunts or something sent them so much complaints of hurt feelings that they just had to restrict the shit your blog and the sites services to you. They do not even warn or tell you, or let you appeal it.

-cant reply to fan mail-cant use public tags
-cant send non anon asks
-cant send fan mail
-your posts do not show in your followers dashboards a lot of the times
-do not appear in notes of people posts
-emails to tumblr staff routinely ignored

To think a group of crybabies and oversensitive snowflakes can roam around and mass report you to silence you because they did not like what you had to say.

Meanwhile the rape and death threats continue to be sent by these tolerant  hate free people in the tumblr community.

Hahaha.

The weirdest part about shadowbans to me is the followers and their posts thing.

Because sometimes I will see someone reblog something from someone who I know is shadowbanned, but I will have not seen that post yet.

Then like a day later that post will show up on my dash from the original poster, with no indication of them reblogging it. It’s almost like they bottleneck the posts so they can only reach a certain number of people.

Today I learned.

I’ll be missing this website and the fun time before this discovery, but censorship has no excuse. I didn’t get away from Putin’s Russia to end up in a little online version of Putin’s Russia. I don’t care if it’s run by homophobic traditionalists or so-called tolerant progressivists, anyway it’s full of crazy shit, and silencing the opposition is a logical conclusion.

You’re welcome on my deviantArt, Pixiv, AO3, and Russian blog. The first and the last allow people of all opinions to speak their mind if they don’t break the rules (on the Japanese one I have no information). Something to look up to, tumblr.

Stuff from the Louvre people don’t usually see.
I’m a bit Europe-homesick tonight. Been to Paris three times on my business and it was cool.

I may live to regret drawing this… by Stephenbyrne

How do you explain all those womens novel covers with the bare chested topless rugged muscular men?
EDIT 
I want to expand on this stupid post
Its like the retard that drew it doesn’t understand what women and men want and want to be.When the women sees the sexy healthy starlet she really would want to be that. And men when seeing it want to fuck that. When men sees the muscled badass in armor signifying wealth and power they want to be that. Women are attracted to both physical power and material wealth of the males, so they want to fuck that.There is no “power fantasy” vs “sexual fantasy” because the because the male’s power fantasy is the female’s sexual fantasy and vice versa. Which makes sense because we are a sexually dimorphic species with sex specific behaviors and cues to determine what we deem a desirable mate.The poorly drawn male is dressed and posed in a female manner which makes it disgusting to both the male and the female far and wide, making it neither a power nor sexual fantasy except to a few idiots (like op) or dom chick who would account for less than 1% of the population combined. Far from the standard and the majority. There are clear and cut differences in men and women, and feminists seemingly want to ignore and/or destroy what makes a woman a women and make them more like men, with a few wanting to either make men like women or women like men and the men like women (a complete reversal)Hence why it is not marketable. And why it will never be marketable.>feminists>logic

My Marketing Management group project involved importing wine from India, the wine that is imported there from South Africa, to Canada… And I had to invent the “strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats” of this decision. Of course I made something up, but in fact it’s just “wtf, the SAR people will deal with Canadians directly if they want to, the Indian company is a non-necessary intermediary and this idea is just ridiculous”*facepalm*
I think the professors well know it too, but we all pretend we’re doing something serious so we can get our grades and our “green cards” (only one person in our class is not a foreigner - others are there because education is a fast track to naturalization).
Also, I’m having an Accounting & Finance exam tomorrow. The subject I most suck at ever since my first school. Will rely largely on luck, half-forgotten knowledge and simple logic (questions are often interrelated, and one hints at the right answer for the other). Well, we all have our weaknesses.
