People are getting harassed, ignored, and abused within this community (and branching communities) and I am personally fed up. If you don’t know, the blog Vic-the-giant recently deleted because they were being harassed and criticized for not responding to certain messages. I think this warrants some kind of… Something. Intervention. I don’t know. But we need people to speak up when they’re being attacked like this because we all have to make sure that people are comfortable here. For a lot of people this community and its content is the only place that makes them feel safe and wanted. The only place where they feel like they belong. And to see people pushed out of it by pressure and other people’s expectations pisses me off. Expectation is a rather big factor in this issue. So many people in the G/t community just want female giants and are personally offended by male giants. I wish I were making that up. And then they go and send messages to female tinies asking them things like if they would want to be a giantess and shit like that. Like even sexually prompting them and shit. I’m fucking sick of this bullshit and I hope we can all come together on this.
TL;DR: If someone is harassing you, tell someone, maybe privately message a blog that has been through the same thing for help, or even trying to talk to whoever if harassing you.
I loved the Vic-the-giant’s blog, he was an amazing person and great artist. I don’t understand why people have to harass and push people out of the safe place we have here. Look, I’m not saying everyone needs to be all sunshine and rainbows but at least have the decency to respect people here. We are not a community, we are not just people with mutual interests… We are friends. We look out for each other, we provide advice and warmth for one another and we make sure everyone feels welcome and not harassed like that, no one deserves that.
Hopefully we can all just agree that were here for art and conversation and stories not to put down people or harass them. That’s my peace, hopefully this spreads
I am not happy. This is not the community I know. Hell, you are all my friends. Family even, because this place is like my home away from home. To hear that one of my friends was harassed, that’s extremely low.
I’ve been through hell and back, I am pissed off someone has hurt my friends.
This community is FAR better than this. To borrow an old saying, if you’re one of the people that drove them to leave, a pox upon you! There’s NO excuse for acting like that, and you should feel ashamed of yourself for causing them to feel like they have to leave.
Are you serious? Whoever is doing this and harassing people, grow the hell up. Be an adult. Stop harassing people who already have a rough time as is, you need to think and act better. The fact that people do this in this community disgusts me. If Vic sees this, we’ll miss you so much bud. I really wish you well and sending all the love and support I can to you.
And whoever continues the harassmemt? Shame on you. Shame on your whole being. I expect better of people, and to know so many people in the community and then see THIS? Disgraceful…
It’s funny. I’ve been very strongly considering deleting my blog as well…
Is this harassment coming from anons mostly, or named users?
If the former, I think turning off anon is a fantastic first step, even though good people do use it to interact when they’re afraid to be recognized. When it comes to named users, I think it might be good to start naming those names (in public or private) so we can all become familiar with who the harassers are and actually be able to take those community-wide measures.
F’ex, if someone came to me and said “x user has been harassing me in such in such way but I don’t feel comfortable calling them out” I would be happy to do that for them.
Not sure what else could be done other than stuff like that.
