Anonymous asked: people seem to think that if you are no longer allowed to make clear, direct statements about your opinions once you become "internet famous" because apparently that just means you're pandering and you are no longer a Real Actual Human Being with Thoughts and Feelings
I guess there’s something to be said for it?
Some of those youtube guys who were outed as sexually abusive were known to post and reblog feminist stuff. The internet is full of pandering. I don’t think the answer is to remain silent about anything political though.
For me, publicly shitting on bad people is a really important teaching tool. Watching bad people get made fun of was formative for me, and a lot of them make it very easy. Maybe posting on tumblr is kind of preaching to the choir, but even here there’s backlash, so I assume this stuff reaches yet-neutral ears as well.
