USE THESE REDDIT SUBS INSTEAD PLEASE FOR GOODNESS SAKE!!!!!!!!!
Hate Reddit if you want, but using these subs are your best chance. People gather in these subs because they have charity to spare:
I never see anyone actually getting any significant donations on tumblr and to be honest, tumblr is the worst place to ask for assistance. Use it as your last resort, it frustrates me to no end seeing people begging for help, reblogging the same post over and over, the same types of posts over and over, to no avail, when people are waiting to help you on a different part of the web
GO TO WHERE THE HELP IS. IF YOU WANT DIRECT ACTION TO WORK STOP WITH TUMBLR AND USE REDDIT.
PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF SATAN REBLOG THIS SO WE CAN START REDUCING THE AMOUNT OF DONATION POSTS THAT GET STUCK FLOATING AROUND THIS WEBSITE
Precisely this, but for one.
Don’t go to /r/legaladvice
It’s a cesspit, and usually wrong anymore.
Non-Americans who escalate inter-nationality teasing immediately to “school shootings and trump” stop challenge
American’s Teasing England: Tea in the shower, u have a queen, other relatively benign stereotypes
American’s Teasing Canada: u have moose and beavers, maple syrup u like it
American’s Teasing Australia: kangaroos and koalas, it’s hot there, summer time, toilets flush backward
Canada, England, and Australia retaliating from that teasing: school shootings, kill a child today hm? your police murder you, you’re gonna die from a preventable disease, everyone in the country is hopelessly poor and dying, everyone’s in debt, you can’t even afford to die. THAT’ll teach u to tease us about having ANIMALS in our country!
I mean, sure, it’s all fun and games to you. But I’ve had friends legitimately try to kill themselves just thinking about a future in this country. I have co-workers who cried on the first day of school because they were scared of dying. While I was working at a school there were three school shooting threats in 4 weeks. I had friends break out into tears after the massacre in 2018 talking about it in class, terrified that they were going to die while working–or watch students die.
My high school history teacher was shot in the back on campus. Everyone here knows someone who’s been affected by gun violence. Everyone knows someone who’s been affected by healthcare, or lack thereof. Everyone knows someone whose life has been ruined by college debt.
The day in, day out nightmare of living in America is not a fucking “GOTCHA” for when you’re trying to tease America. Why is this so hard to comprehend.
Non-Americans: Ugh americans are so entitled and mean and rude
Also Non-Americans: Oh you’re gonna make fun of me drinking tea? Well you’re gonna be violently murdered and then you’ll go into thousands upon thousands of dollars in debt from the act lol this is an equivalent comparison and doesn’t make me look like the asshole in the situation at all!! Americans are soooo rude!
Any examples of what we can tease you about then? Any universal Americanisms that cause the right amount of offense without stepping over the line?
Shoes on in house
Smiling too much
High school football
Opossums, raccoons, deer, etc.
Carpet (I’ve heard other countries aren’t as obsessed with carpet as Americans)
Sales tax (how much will this cost? Nobody knows!)
Roadside tourist attractions (world’s biggest ball of yarn etc)
“it’s only a 6 hour drive”
Buying tea in a gallon jug
Being in the prairie states and there literally being nothing in any direction for miles not even trees
Tornadoes anything to do with tornado culture
The mere concept of semi trucks / 18 wheelers
Every state except California claiming they have the weirdest weather
five petrol stations within a two block radius, sometimes two of the same brand
ketchup is too spicy
mayonnaise on/in literally everything we put noodles and mayo in a bowl and call it a salad i shit you not
absolute failures at geography
deep fried everything. seriously. we deep fry BUTTER.
Absolutely everything and anything somehow being a casserole
HELL IS REAL billboard here in Ohio
The giant dinosaur roadside tourist attraction out in the middle of nowhere
Corn fields, everywhere you look
Weird salads (like ambrosia)
Prom (I’ve heard other countries don’t have prom? Or any of the other 100 school dances a year??)
People microwave their tea instead of boiling it
The white people half-jog-and-wave combo when crossing the street
Endless ads for pharmaceuticals
how about not having our laundry machines in any sensible places? mine’s in the fucking basement, so all of us have to haul our laundry up and down a flight of stairs. this is extremely common
The difficulty is that all our Stupid Nonsense is so regional. For example, the appropriate wildlife joke here in the Northeast is bears. But my family in Florida has had to shoo alligators out of the backyard like a common nuisance.
That’s because your country is 50 small countries in a trenchcoat
Yes! See! That’s funny! “50 small countries in a trenchcoat.” That’s hysterical!
School shootings and systemic racism aren’t. Go get good material.
To the list of things to make fun of Americans for:
Ten gallon cowboy hats are considered formal wear in Texas
one time a stranger on neopets years ago told me “school makes you think you have to be good at everything but sometimes it’s ok to just be good at one thing. even if it’s not something you get a grade for. they don’t grade you for being a good person” and tbh i still think about it little did i know all i needed this whole time was in glowing purple text and that icon of the goth fairy
