Beyonce and Miley Cyrus may dominate the end-of-the-year lists from Microsoft’s Bing and Yahoo, respectively, but Tumblr is one of the few sites giving props to the ridiculous selfies, decadent desserts and pop culture jokes shared by its users.
School teaches you that ignorance is shameful, rather than being a person’s default AND ENTIRELY FIXABLE state. Sucks the fun outta learning, if you let it.
Will always reblog.
XKCD is my favorite comic of all time, for this reason. Tumblr could learn a huge lesson, especially from this comic.
if someone doesn’t know something, or says something wrong, do not shame them, teach them.
today i made a joke on tumblr and received 17 death threats and that really says a lot about this website
That’s what happens when you make jokes against marginalised people.
Yes, but there’s a difference between telling someone they made a mistake for making a badly worded joke and telling them to hang themselves for it.
Sometimes I feel like nothing is good enough for tumblr. Disney portrays a strong female character. It’s not good enough because she’s white. Google does something for Elimination of Violence Against Women day. It’s not good enough because it’s not smacked in your face. You have to cherish the little victories, folks. The cup isn’t always half empty.
FINALLY SOMEONE FUCKING SAYS IT
Tumblr is part of real life.It doesn’t exist in a vaccuum. The people who shout sometimes get noticed more than the people who are reasonable.
do you ever look around at the big crowds of people around you and realize everyone has a story and memories and family and troubles and achievements and a first kiss and a broken heart but you’ll never know any of it and every human life is really intricate and expansive but oh they’ve walked into a shop and you’ll never see them again and you’ll never know just what they were thinking

omg this is still going
IT’S A RULE TO REBLOG EVERY TIME IT SHOWS UP ON YOUR DASH.
Third time reblogging it today, and I regret nothing
Broke 5 Million!
Still going strong..
WE BROKE 6 MILLION. keep it going!
I like how, on the outside, it looks like some abandoned desert resort structure, but on the inside it’s the Knowledge Warehouse.
tumblr will find a way to be offended about anything
it’s breeding a generation of people who need to be coddled and protected from life, growing up believing that everyone should hold up a metaphorical sign saying ‘TRIGGER WARNING’ before anything that might be considered offensive (everything)
FINALLY SOMEONE SAID IT
But some people might be on tumblr who have actually experienced something in life and all they want on tumblr is a place to relax. And they genuinely do get triggered by something.
The trigger warning doesn’t protect people from knowing something is out there.
So no, you can’t protect people from the realities of life, but the trigger warnings are a courtesy for the people who do need it.
I wish people would learn the difference between “OMG I want to live in the 50’s!! I was born in the wrong era!!”
And “I appreciate the vintage aesthetic and wish it was easy and commonplace to adopt that kind of style in today’s world.”
Because, as much as I love pompadours and winged eyeliner, I also love having rights.
I have been waiting all my tumblr life for this to appear on my dash
This fucking guy
I keep seeing different versions of this. The point is still valid, though.
So I just went to look in the “depression” tag, and this box pops up
And then I click “tell me more” and the page is so cool!
Thank you, tumblr staff. You are amazing.
Do you ever just wanna hug someone so tightly to the point where you have absolutely no intentions of ever letting go because you want them to know just how much they mean to you and how much you love them and you just wanna take away all the bad things in their life and replace them with only good things?
