Something that’s been bothering me lately
Unpopular opinion time.
I’ve seen a lot of anger and hate towards a certain person lately, opinions expressed that this person is not welcome here on Tumblr or to comment at all in “our” space.
I wasn’t actually aware there was any discussion about me, to be honest, until one of the few Tumblr blogs I follow (I tend to generally only see what crosses my dashboard unless I check out the Dragon Age tag, which is rarely… heck, I don’t even tend to read many replies to my posts unless I catch them at the top of my dashboard) reposted this.
And then I wasn’t sure I would actually address it… because, really, why bother? If I devoted much mental energy to concerning myself every time someone online got themselves in a twist over something I’ve said, something they thought I’ve said, or something they believe I represent, I’d have lost it long ago. And who would actually listen to me who isn’t already inclined to?
But it seems to be a thing, so I’m game to throw in my two cents (as always). I’ll put it below a cut, however, since I’m apt to use some harsh language… and since some hothouse orchids appear to wilt every time I so much as raise my eyebrow, they might want to skip my opinion entirely. Though, really, that’s a good option for almost anything I say.
