Something About Tumblr

​A friend of mine deleted her Tumblr blog after being harassed by some who had issues with the fandom they feel passionate about. I thought Tumblr was a cool and safe place for everyone. It seems it isn’t. I’m sorry she did that but it seems Tumblr has a way to go to become that place of open mindedness and true freedom of expression. Fandoms are highly personal things so when one is attacked because of uninformed people saying ignorant things then perhaps it’s time to run along. I’m glad to be on WordPress.

  1. That’s so sad. I’m a fangirl of many things too and although I’ve been into a lot of fanwars and fights with some ignorant fans (I know, it’s shameful, but that’s part of it), I wouldn’t do anything as far as to make another person feel like he or she had to stop doing something–especially if it’s a thing they love–just because we don’t match opinions. I know how it feels like to be passionate about things and I’m sure at some point, we’ve all become a fan of something. I wouldn’t want anyone to stop doing what they love or even feel a little bit of shame for liking things just because of some immature people. 😦
