Accidentally stumbled upon tumblr today and read this gem that got re-blogged hundreds of times.

"i ain’t tryna be rude or anything but i honestly always assume that what happened in that fraternity singing video is what always happens when white ppl socialize when there’s no one else around"

This is the stuff that absolutely irritates me with tumblr. It's pretty common for me to see racist remarks towards whites that regularly get re-blogged countless times. For me, I think fighting racism with racism is like fighting fire with fire. You've got people proudly sporting usernames like "stopthewhitepeople" that gloat about how many white users they upset on tumblr. I just think it's a sad situation overall. Granted, not all of tumblr is like this. But it's pretty common-place for me to see things like this pop up. Not to mention all of the gender debates that pop up as well.

Anyways, didn't really want to re-bump this old thread. But I did want to voice my frustration towards what I think is a sad scenario.


the lengths people go to address everything BUT the actual SAE chant is unbelievable tbh. plus what you constitute as "racism against whites" is incomparable to what actual poc go through but whatever

"the lengths people go to address everything BUT the actual SAE chant is unbelievable tbh."

The point wasn't about the SAE chant. It was about someone assuming that people with the same skin color all act the same way. I just find it sad that ignorant statements like "no offense but i thought all white people act racist when non-whites aren't around" gets re-blogged multiple times. I find Sigma Alpha Epsilon's actions deplorable, but firing back with racist remarks yourself makes you no better. It simply puts you on their same level.

"plus what you constitute as "racism against whites" is incomparable to what actual poc go through but whatever"

In other words... "non-whites have it worse, so whites can't complain."

*sigh...*

I just find statements like that to be incredibly sad. There is no justification for racism period. Fighting ignorance with ignorance is a shameful fight because both sides come out as losers.

Anyways, this is exactly why I tend to avoid tumblr. Nice anime gifs though.

If you don't like the site don't go there.

I don't like the Rap music hence I don't go to rap concerts, leave tumblr to the tumblrites, the endless flame cycle can burn to its hearts content. Meanwhile we have a much nicer and less aggressive community here.

If I take it seriously, I hate it. It's scary how ridiculous Tumblr SJW logic can be.

If I read it to make fun of it, I kinda enjoy it. But it cannot be denied that so-called "social justice" warriors are starting to become an actual problem. Young, impressionable people are adopting this type of toxic ideology in increasing numbers.

I can't decide if I'm on the wrong or the right side of tumblr, because i have yet to see any of the stuff you guys are talking about. I'm just there for the pictures and gifs.

Are you guys aware that there's an unfollow button? If you don't like what people are posting, unfollow them. It's that simple.

Using tumblr is pretty much a game of tip-toeing around the SJWs while collecting all the memes/porn you can find.

^Also the unfollow button is used for when you screw up

I just use tumblr to find porn gifs, memes and cute cats I ignore the rest.

Am I the only one who hates posts on Tumblr that say things like "Reblog if you hate feminism" or "If you turn down someone for being a certain race, you're racist."? It's really annoying to me and I think it is pointless to have stupid arguments about hating or supporting something. Posts about supporting things like cancer I don't mind though.

Sorry if I have offended anybody.



You have a Miu Matsuoka avatar. I like you.


Tumblr for me is simply a gif site, as well as an occasional porn website as well. I get all most of my Seitokai Yakuindomo pictures there.

I only refer to Tumblr if I'm seeking pornographic imagery. Otherwise, I don't have a Tumblr account, and I always hear a lot of bad things about Tumblr, especially how it's a haven for SJW bloggers and third-wave radical feminists. In fact, my friend once spoke to me about how someone posted about how much of a pleasant night it was to go out for a jog, and then a bunch of people responded and screamed at him on account of being a privileged white male.

Needless to say, but Tumblr isn't something I commit to, and all things considered, it's for the best.


You guys know that the internet is brimming with free porn and funny images, and you don't need to use tumblr for it, right?

WARNING: FOLLOWING POST CAN BE TRIGGERING!!!!!

Ah yes, tumblr.

Shows what a website run by uneducated, one-sided, overly touchy, weak willed, whiny and racist tween and teen femnazis can be capable of.

Avoid it like the plague.
