You guys watching kingdom need to fucking stop hating on the teams! Just because your faves didn’t win doesn’t mean you suddenly have a pass to be mad at the teams that did win!!!! If you’re mad, be mad at mnet!!!! Jesus christ, I can’t believe you guys are actually sending hate to the teams AND the fans for something they have literally no control over. I’m tired of y’all

If you can't support the LGBT+ community without a recipe to replace your Chick-fil-A order with, then you won't support us with a recipe. Be a grown up and be willing to give up a little bit for your taste buds for a good cause.
very weird how tumblr has conditioned some people to see an innocuous opinion and immediatly interpret it as a personal attack on their specific identity, as if they are the only people that thing might apply too, and this person has gone specifically out of their way to attack them personally
i think it’s time for some of you to admit helnik always hit hard in the books kanej just hit harder but bc kanej was a little different in the show and helnik stayed the same Now You’ve Realized
Probably controversial opinion but no one owes America's problems their full attention. Yes, what's happening in the US is important and it's impacting other places, and occasionally getting informed is crucial, but the world isn't comprised solely of it, and it doesn't deserve any more attention than the problems of any other country.
Social media is SO oversaturated with America, America, America that people who aren't American get swept up in everything America and what's happening there, when their attention is so much more valuable zeroing in on what's happening in their country and their communities.
And it seems to me that so many Americans don't even get this- they'll demand the world's focus every time stuff comes up but like... There's so many other things happening elsewhere? No one can be asked to be solely and fully emotionally invested in a place they don't live where their voice doesn't count and where they can't make a difference.
This post isn't aimed at Americans, by the way. I don't care to debate how many of you are completely unaware of US-centrism in media and how harmful it is.
Instead, it's aimed at the non-Americans (and especially those whose first language isn't English)- when's the last time you checked your own country's news? Followed accounts talking about your own country's problems? Asked around about your community and actions they might be organising that you knew nothing about?
Do you even know how the legal system functions? Who the leading political figures are? Who the minorities are? How to help them? If you're queer, do you know if there's official queer communities around (If it's not illegal where you live)? There's so many questions to be asked and answered.
This isn't meant to shame you if you don't know, by the way, it's just meant to one, remind you that you don't have to be guilty about not having time to be updated about US news and two, and two, that your country needs your attention far more.
P.S. I'm obviously not saying you should never pay attention to the US- the fight minorities there are fighting is important, and you can get educated by listening to them and try to find out how to apply it to your own country, or how to inform others. Remember- the issues BIPOC, muslims, jews, women, disabled people etc are facing aren't new, and aren't limited to the US.
Oh my god I’m getting people telling me to kill myself over that fucking post saying I don’t like nalu now I’m fjfjdjskks
fun fact about me: if i say okie dokie to an anon, i am begging them to shut up. if i say it to a mutual, i love you
If you say that toxic RD stans aren’t a thing, you’re being willfully ignorant. If you claim that people have problems with that fic because it’s popular, you are being willfully ignorant. If you try to claim both sides are being awful, you are either being willfully ignorant or just haven’t been paying fucking attention. A lot of the people who have left have made it abundantly clear that it is because of the toxic RD stands. Hell, the writer of RD is on hiatus because of the toxic RD stans. Anywhere you look it is glaring obvious toxic RD stands are why people are leaving. And if you try to claim anons don’t count, you’re lying to yourself because they do. Getting constant anon hate like that is exhausting, and you know it.
To be perfectly frank, if you try to claim that these anons don’t count, that makes you suspicious as fuck in my book. It makes me personally wonder if you’re not one of the people who sends these anons to people who don’t like RD and are just trying to cover your own ass by saying that.
I have no beef with no-droids. I have issues with the way some things were handled, but I have no beef. I think a lot of us feel that way. I’ve seen the sentiment echoed a lot of places: we have no issue with the writer, what we have issue with is the god-awful stans. This type of reaction isn’t from jealousy but because these stans are making this space hostile. You can argue and blame and shift guilt all you want, but that is a solid fact.
Does no one actually know the difference between "mortified" and "horrified" anymore? And why is it that it's "mortified" that people almost always go for when it's almost never the one that they actually mean???
(Psst, unless you mean "embarrassed/ashamed", mortified is probably not the word you're looking for. If you're trying to say someone was shocked/dismayed/disgusted, you probably want horrified.)
So I saw an older clip of uh. I think it was Tubbo, Wilbur and Schlatt (there was someone else too but I didn't recognize their voice) talking about how a lot of times people assume that like. If one cc did smth bad, the others don't know/don't talk to them about it and that people often assume a lot of things about the personal lives of ccs/their interactions with their friends and how people will often act as though the lives of ccs are to be made entertainment to the same level of their content. Heavy paraphrasing here but I have a shit memory so you'll have to bear with me.
And now I, honestly, completely agree to this! I do agree fully with what they have said. However I do have something to say about how ccs hold each other accountable and this is where I get a little controversial if you will.
While yes I do agree that ccs don't have to constantly hold their friends accountable for every single little thing, I think as some point it just becomes complacence.
Let me use what happened with Jschlatt not long ago as an example. Jschlatt, as we know, is very openly bigoted and it's not exactly something you can avoid from this content. One of his latest videos is a big show of this. As we know, a lot of drama came up to pile on top of that whole situation, so I suppose I understand if no one (ccs that is) addressed it right away but, as we know that still has yet to happen.
Now, of course, I have No idea what goes on when ccs are not streaming and, quite frankly, I don't want to know either. What I do know, however, is that publicly speaking, anyone who still associates with Jschlatt and are still friends with him, like it or not, are complacent.
Should they be held to the same level of accountability as Jschlatt? No, I don't think so. However, what Jschlatt did was make an entire video essentially dedicated to his own bigotry where he showcased extremely hateful content towards various minorities and, well, whether ccs like it or not, staying publicly silent about it does make them look complacent.
I believe that, at some point, ccs have to realize it's not about people wanting them to constantly hold their friends publicly accountable when they do minor fuck ups. It's about realizing that by associating with people who are openly bigoted and who have never addressed those behaviors, they are basically giving a big middle finger to the minorities who watch them and creating an unsafe environment for them. They are creating a space where bigots feel comfortable and I don't think I need to explain why that's harmful.
I'm not here to cancel anyone or aim this post specifically at any cc in particular, this has just been on my mind for quite some time and I feel like it should be something we talk about.
TLDR; Even if you are holding someone accountable in private, you still look complacent in public. That's not assuming anything, that's just a fact, and ccs who don't hold their bigot friends accountable are creating a harmful environment to minorities who consume their content and no one talks about it so I will.
