Things I hate about tumblr:
1- The excess of so-called social justice bloggers who ooze, nay, fucking GUSH their ‘holier than thou’ attitudes, commentaries, and thinly veiled regurgitated opinions endlessly to the point that my dashboard is more often than not, just a shit storm of ‘TW’ings.
2- Pictures of girls (and boys, but mostly girls), wearing floaty/tight/uber fashionable stuff and standing around in fields of lavender looking serene/in forests looking lost/in urban settings looking super attitudey WHILST WEARING ATTIRE THAT IS IN NO WAY SUITABLE TO ANY KIND OF NORMAL WEATHER CONDITIONS. ie- girl, in the CLEAR WINTER in bare legs, doc martins, short pretty floaty dress, long swishy hair, some kind of headpiece (hat, headband, w/e), and a teeny, tiny, little leather jacket/cardigan/blazer and some pathetic stringy scarf and oversized mittens as though that makes up for the fact that her vagina is about to fall off from frostbite in a second. IN WINTER. IN A WINTER SETTING.
3- ‘my mum/dad/nephew/cousin twice removed/goldfish/mantally incapacitated long lost doppleganger said that if this post gets more than x amount of notes, they will buy me a fucking cookie that says ‘well done, you have been acknowledged for something online’
4- ‘LOL, I’M SO ANTISOCIAL. I hate people. Hating people and social interaction is the beeeest, I live my life like a lone cyborg, forever connected to the internet and tumblr and it’s just the cutest most romanticised thing ever, isn’t it!’
5- Vacuous images of pretty things in frills, nail polish, macaroons, and high street clothing brands. WHY DOES ANYONE WANT TO SEE THIS SHIT. LOOK DOWN AT YOUR OWN HANDS. THERE. RIGHT THERE. THE NAIL VARNISH IS THERE. YOUR STARBUCKS CUP? YEP. THAT’S THERE TOO. OH FOR THE LOVE OF FUCK!
6- ‘I was in the shop and this really racist/homophobic/sexist person was around, so I said/did something that is really out there and creative and so carefully constructed that probably about 80% of these posts are not true, I just want to jump on the social justice bandwagon and get notes’
7- American politics. American politics. American politics. American politics. American politics. Something very brief about australian/british politics. Back to American politcs. American politics. American politics. ‘i’m so socially aware and in touch with the world’.
8- Thigh gaps. Flat stomachs. Big pert titties. Tight round butts. Big full lips. In the bathtub, lying in a field, against a wall, in a bed, in a group, in public, wearing non-seasonally appropriate clothes, what ever the fuck man. I’m fed up of it. That sort of shit is what fuels hateful self-perception.
Reasons why I like tumblr-
1- Pictures scroll past, kills time.
2 - A place to rant because I haven’t got any receptive followers.
3- Funny things, memes etc, within reason.
