And while we’re on the subject…
This whole thing with automatically jumping to assumptions about someone reblogging something that was made/wrote by someone who did/wrote gross shit in the past has got to stop.
This is a fucking huge website with a lot of people using it, and a lot of them don’t keep up with particular users and what they do and say. It’s fine to point something out to them if you feel it’s necessary, and it’s also fine to have boundaries for yourself and say you won’t follow anyone who reblogs from a gross, abusive blogger you want to stay far away from (like I have to now).
But people leaping down people’s throats for reblogging something someone wrote/drew/whatever, immediately assuming people are okay with the problematic shit the person did in the past that they probably didn’t even know about is just being an asshole and purposely looking for an excuse to cause drama and fighting.
I saw this one blog telling people to back off when they were jumped on for reblogging a person they didn’t know did problematic shit in the past (namely blackface). Apparently, they didn’t know about the blackface and reblogged something else from them (that was not blackface), and then the people running that blog were accused of reblogging and promoting blackface.
And then people said that their understandable and fair enough “we’re sorry for that, but can you please back off of our blog? we didn’t know.” reaction was a “fauxpology” and “passive-aggressive.”
Do you fucking dipshits even know what “passive-aggressive” is anymore? What the hell are you doing?
A lot of people on this site need to get a fucking grip on themselves. You’re fucking arrogant, egotistical bullies who don’t even know what the fuck they’re saying anymore.
