Exactly. Literally, all the op did was ask a question and one person in particular was like “YOU’RE MAKING GROSS DEMANDS.“
I understand that the internet is completely inundated with nsfw gt and gts content, and I understand how some people will be put off by this—hell, I can even see people getting pissed and disgusted about that–but why attack someone who’s asking a simple question? Like, for real? I’m probably going to get a lot of shit for this, but idc.
I’m legitimately pissed off at how fucking hostile some of the community is. And mostly it seems to come from people who want more gentle content.
Here’s an idea: make more gentle content?
But really, I don’t take issue with people who want gentle gt. Shit, I love gentle SFW gt! I like it more than nsfw, it’s just more fun to draw nsfw and people show more interest in it, so why waste time drawing gentle when the people who want gentle don’t seem to find it? And the people who want nsfw lose their shit for kinky stuff?
You know, my big problem with people solely into “fluff” who pretend that the whole sexual side literally doesn’t exist, are bordering on pedophilia apologists. For example, there’s an artist on dA (that I still hate like a fucking lot) who ONLY draws GT (involving feet and vore) with characters that are 7 TO 15. And I lost a few “friends” a while back for bringing up the fact that he was sexualizing little kids. They literally said “Well, I see it as fluff! I mean, there’s no gore! It’s not a fetish, it’s a fandom!” People who forget that the sexual side of gt exists are completely supporting this by being so adamant in their blindness. For example, here’s a piece from that artist where he is literally mocking people for saying that his art is pedophilia AND at the same time advocating the ideals of the people who turn a blind eye to the nsfw side of gt: http://michat2.deviantart.com/art/IPR-Nope-Not-kinky-Not-at-all-521462042 (but his bullshit is for another rant, I’ve literally reported every single piece he’s posted and he’s still posting it because deviantart doesn’t care that people are fapping to little boys. ANYWAY.)
tl;dr for that chunk of text, my interpretation of what the OP was saying was that people are turning a blind eye to the nsfw aspect of gt and letting people get away with shit that shouldn’t be part of the “community” at all.
But besides that, the responses from the people who posted on that just lacked tact.
I’m going to lose so many followers for this, but really, this shit needs to be called out.
“I can’t believe people don’t feel welcome in the community!” Yeah, well, the people who say that need to fucking check their goddamn privilege. Tumblr’s a shitty place for people who aren’t interested solely in fluff. Sure, there are a ton of nsfw blogs. Most of them don’t really have people behind them that are very social or active. That isn’t a community.
“everyone is welcome in the community, oh except people who realize that this is a fetish as well as a fandom, those people can get the fuck out and check themselves.” Shaking my god fucking damn head.
I’ll probably delete this later, because I don’t want to have to deal with people messaging me saying I’m wrong (even though this is my opinion on my blog?) but really, the OP was not in the wrong. At all.
The GT “community” will never be a community because some of the people are just so fucking caustic and elitist.
tl;dr part 2 to the general “community” and not horhardaho: please don’t tell me to kill myself for having an opinion that differs from your own, I’ve gone through that shit way too many times before.
(If you want me to delete this reblab let me know; if people want to give you shit they can go through me first)
But um yeah, I totally agree.
“Everyone is welcome” unless you’re not fluff, apparently. And then those of us who are into both kink AND fluff are living in fuckin, like, no man’s land because we’re too boring for most kinksters and too “””gross””” for everyone else. A+, 10/10 would buy again.
I got into the tumblr G/t/macro/whatever the fuck circles because I thought it would be hella neat to queer things up a bit compared to my regular haunts. But then I forgot it was tumblr, and that people are going to be fucking jerks that don’t know how to use the block button and instead yell and scream and shout until whoever they don’t like that day disappears. My other, less queer, (and arguably more diverse) haunts, like the forums, are real communities. They actually take care of each other. I’ve seen it, I’ve been there. This doesn’t even compare to them.
But it’s like, when an anon says shit, let’s ALL BAND TOGETHER but hoh boy if a kinkster looks at a fluff blogger the wrong way apparently there’s hell to pay and this is 100% fine
I am pretty damn close to deleting this blog tbh. I’ve been on tumblr for 6 years now, and I’ve seen the way tumblr is. I’ve seen people I admired get raked over the coals for fucking nothing and they disappear forever. I’ve seen this happen countless times, and now that it’s happening here? I’ve been teetering on the brink of done for a few years now on my main blogs, and I was hoping that this fun little side blog would be a remedy. But nope, tumblr users gonna be tumblr users, no matter what the topic is. This is one of the last nails in the coffin.
I’m going to take a break from this account for a while. I may feel like coming back. I may not. We’ll see.
In the meantime, I’ll be posting at https://sizekink.com.
