It’s kind of weird being older than most of the active users on tumblr then actively criticizing tumblr. I mean, I generally just say ‘tumblr’ when I’m talking about people getting butt hurt. Like in my thing about the John Campbell thing, I’m assuming that most of the people who bitched and bitched the loudest were younger than me because it was so loud and so ridiculous. I’m probably wrong, I’m sure plenty of them were older than me. But it’s also like my criticism of social crusaders, I do assume that the loudest who jump to conclusions are teenagers, but with them there’s the opposite side where if they are teens they’re probably not really on the pulse of what’s going on in current events and anything other than their little high school lives.
So, it’s interesting generalizing about tumblr users, especially out of the 250 people i follow, I think maybe 20 of them are significantly younger than I am, and I’m deeming significantly younger to be more than 3 years. I honestly don’t know, I don’t really care. Most of the people I follow are pretty mellow so it’s all good it’s just a thing. Tumblr is generalized to be the site of depressed teenagers who are also super open about their sexuality and are all about torrenting all forms of entertainment. That’s at least what I see on my dash somewhat often. I also follow a lot of artists who like using this site to share their stuff because it’s a pretty great platform for sharing artwork with an audience so it’s interesting being an Internet who wants to be on the side of the creator but I’m still on the side of being an audience member to be honest. But I’m also older than the vocal youth and I periodically comment on Internet Current Events.
I don’t know, I forgot what I wanted to say. I think I was mostly commenting on how odd the tumblr community is with it being so vocal and young but not being that young and vocal. I remember saying in my John Campbell thing that people need to sit and think about things a bit longer before commenting but that’s the stance and thought process of someone in mid-twenties and not someone in their mid-teens.
