I don't know how much time you guys spend on the political side of Tumblr, but if you have you've probably heard of Communism Kills. If not, here's her FB page.
Anyway she got the shit doxxed out of her and while I do think doxxing is shitty and terrible and no one should go through it, I can't help being secretly pleased about her getting exposed like this. On the other hand, these trigger happy SJW's make me really happy that I haven't made a name for myself on Tumblr by being anti-feminism, etc.
But this is so pointless like, she'll obviously never change her mind so let's just agree to disagree and ignore her. I don't get this at all. It's the same thing when, for example, misogynists send vicious messages to feminists online. No matter where you stand on a specific subject, when both parties are not willing to change their mind or have a civilized dialogue, then arguing on the internet is dumb and pointless and we become worse.
It technically wasn't doxxing, since all the leaked information was actually stuff she had shown publicly. I mean, the KKK, that was a dox (and a really good one ). But all that got leaked of communismkills' was public stuff from tumblr and facebook.
And it'd be ok if she kept her opinions to herself/her own blog. But she seeks out people to deliberately send them racist, transphobic, bullying shit. I follow someone who got harassed by her neo-nazi friends, and that person was so so happy to see her get so wound up. I don't feel bad for her at all
I understand where you all are coming from, but at the same time, the social justice that happens on Tumblr is important. It's not good to jump down people's throats, of course, but I absolutely loathe the fact that "social justice" is seen as a negative term on Tumblr - it's justice for society. That's it. To me, one of Tumblr's most valuable qualities is its ability to educate people quite easily. Without Tumblr, I wouldn't know half of the things about transgender people as I do now, for example. Social justice is not a negative thing, "social justice warriors" are not a negative thing, being a bitch and screaming at others for no reason, however, is, but not everyone interested in social justice does that and it's pretty harmful to a lot of causes.
Anyway, I follow a lot of people who have been reblogging a lot of doxxing stuff and I just ignore it. It makes me uncomfortable to see people's personal information displayed so publicly (especially if it involves credit cards) but at the same time, anyone who's a member of the KKK is a piece of shit and should be exposed.
yeah if it wasn't for tumblr I probably would still think of myself as a girl. I'd probably be straight!! Horrible
but seriously, I find out so much through tumblr, not only about myself but also a lot of news. I wouldn't know about Ferguson, for one. I also would know much about problems in my own country. Once you know how to weed out the bull it's really good
