Entirely too stubborn.
Already set in a career I can work the rest of my life.
That career is Law Enforcement.
I am a cop.
I'll give advice on anything I know a thing about so don't hesitate to ask.
Recently, we had a 16 year old kid blow his face off with a shotgun. A suicide. And Tumblr seems to be preaching ground for this, so from an Officer to you, Tumblr…
Stop. Just stop and think for 10 seconds before you say anything. This kid had just gotten dumped and his guy friends all were giving him some shit because a month later, he wasn’t over the girl. These were his friends giving him what they probably thought was just a normal amount of shit. Just razzing their buddy like they razz each other. And then, he came home from school and put a gun in his mouth.
Some people can take endless amounts of shit and never react like that. Some can’t. You don’t know and you should be aware of how little you know about your acquaintances, and even friends! They are a person independent from you with different feelings on near everything and there is NO requirement for you to know a damn thing about them. You have no right to judge how anyone reacts to life.
You don’t know how bad I want to go the “reverse-shaming” type route and just cuss those kids out. Tell them what little fuckers they were and what their words did to that kid. Society accepts far too much bullshit. You may think you’re “teasing” and everyone is okay with teasing but… obviously, you’re wrong.
Calling that girl fat? What if your words are the ones that push her over the edge. Calling that guy a pussy? What if?
Now because I’m a grown adult and I’m not going to yell at people who I know for a fact are children. I won’t be speaking to those kids. But…
Tumblr Anon, you are sometimes a motherfucker… I assume you’re an adult and undoubtedly the biggest prick on the planet at times. I have yet to have a problem with any Anon (tumblr, youtube, etc) and I think if I did, I’ve got the self-confidence and self-awareness to say “Hey, go fuck yourself.” But, think about the impressionable kids you’re talking to. The saddest part is, while you value no one, these people just MIGHT believe you and put some misguided value in your ignorant opinion. Calling a girl fat or a guy a pussy is never appropriate. Even if they ARE fat or a pussy! It is not your place to say, nor is it any of your business. They are probably aware. And you are just thrusting your insecurities on someone else. You disgust me. It depresses and kills a little part of me every time I see someone get “hate mail” because, while I know you’re an insecure little twat, Anon, the person who receives that hate mail might not understand just how pitiful of a human being you are. And that is the real tragedy. Some impressionable person (not even just a kid) may actually BELIEVE the hateful bullshit you spew or the passive aggressive snide remarks you make, that’s the worst part. Get your shit together, Anon.
Last but not least, if you ever need someone to talk to, I am here. Follower, not follower, anon, white, black, purple, gay, straight, trans, alien. You can send me a message on here and I will get a notification on my phone. My email is on here (or my personal blog which is linked on here) it’s firstname.lastname@example.org. You can create an anon email in like 2 minutes, if privacy is necessary. If you need to hear another voice, I have Skype, all you need to do is ask. I will mail you pictures of kitties every day for a month if that helps (and I don’t even like kitties!)
And, if I can’t help, you can always call this number. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
