why do people consider tags to be these special, treasured places?
They’re categories. They’re not your safe space. The internet is not a safe space. Want a safe space? Then make your own blog, make it password protected and only allow those with the password on it. Plain and Simple.
But I’ve been hearing fat activists and other sjws yell at people for posting shit in the bindi tag and fat acceptance tag, saying “THIS IS FAT NEGATIVE/WHITE GIRL WITH A BINDI, SO IT DOESN’T BELONG HERE!”
um, yeah it does. Tags are categories, that’s it.
I’ve made almost 100 posts saying the exact same thing… It CANNOT be said enough. Join a forum! Go literally anywhere else!! Tags on Tumblr do not belong to x,y,z group
