This is fucking bullshit right here.
No, not the Ferguson crisis happening because that is important and critical, but this fucking post right here.
Some people use tumblr as a getaway from the world around them. Sometimes this is quite vital to them. So you can’t fucking blame a person for not reblogging current news posts if it means protecting their goddamn mental health.
I’m all for educating oneself about what’s going on currently, and I encourage that people at least make themselves aware of what’s happening where and why. But don’t you dare fucking hate a person because they are doing what’s best for themselves and their mental health. We’re not being fucking ignorant. We’re aware. We’re informed, which is the most a lot of people can do from in front of their computers and desks, but don’t you fucking judge people for not reblogging something or whatever.
What’s happening is terrible, yes, but hating people for not putting their mental states at risk is also fucking terrible and disgusting.
I’m fucking pissed off at a whole fucking lot of you. Bye.
This is important, because there’s a difference between someone ignoring whats going on because they don’t care, and someone trying to protect their mental health so that they don’t spiral down even worse from all the negativity that’s going on.
If you harass, attack, put blame on someone because they’re trying to keep themselves from falling into a very, very bad pit of anxiety/depression/any other mental health issue that could stem from any of this, then you are horrible.
I understand that what’s happening in Ferguson is inexcusable, hell I’m reblogging what I can to spread awareness or news or anything of the sort because it’s not right at all. But people with mental health issues who are badly affected by what’s happening there and need to tumblr savior/post block what is happening should not be shamed for doing so, because what good does it do to put someone’s mental (and maybe even physical state) at risk as well with what’s happening?
it does no good at all.
So please just be aware that there are people out there who do genuinely care, but need to be safe for there own personal reasons and have to stay clear of what is happening, please.
