"if you’re straight and white tumblr will lynch you~"
fun fact!! there are actual places in the real irl world today (2014!) where if you are anything other than straight and white you will actually get lynched! literally! they will literally kill you!! isn’t that wild??
Lately I feel like tumblr has been this desperate harbor of posts and human efforts trying to make a change, bringing stories back and forth like some morbid post office, or the bloody nursing station of a battlefield. Each visit to my dashboard feels growing in anger and desparation because of the rush of awareness to social justice issues lately. Reading one post after another and signing Change.org petitions about twisted circumstances that the system has put innocent people through makes me feel like there’s no hope and we’re going in some sudden downward spiral of white supremacy and normalized systematic racism, even though it’s been there all along. I hope this particularly shitty moment in history will open our eyes a bit more and motivate our generation to stay viligantly critical and educated.
