What's up. I'm Kevin. You can call me UWBW (I've been told it's pronounced "ubwub"). I did a song for a Homestuck album once, and I make a lot of other music too, from time to time. Prepare to be triggered.
oh man, a thing in a video game that doesn’t quite correspond to real life
better make a comic where people get mad about it
Did you know?
College exams are the leading cause of Tumblr among young adults.
You will be confused
By the austere glow of a laptop sat
A student who studied for finals that
Over the past week had become his life
His notes caused him pain, his books caused him strife
“How will I ever get this much work done?”
He cried, though his studying had not begun
Two exams left and his willpower did go
His passion for internet began slowly to grow…
“I’ll just take a moment to check my facebook,
I doubt it would hurt to give twitter a look,
And I just know Tumblr’s all abuzz tonight!
For the next hour, maybe a study break is alright.”
And gone was the old word of books and of thought!
Through blue-backgrounds of social media he sought
To learn the joys of living vicariously
Through the words of others, he felt himself free.
He retweeted this, and then reblogged that,
and posted to Reddit a pic of his cat.
He shared and he liked and a fave’d to his blog,
With nary a thought to his work did he slog
Then he glanced at the clock and exclaimed with dismay,
“It’s become the morning! Tomorrow’s today!”
The sun had come up; he had pulled an all-nighter
No pages were written in the book of this writer
He redoubled his efforts in studying anew,
And read four whole chapters as though they were two!
He sped through his studies and learnt the whole book
Till his eyes were strained and his hands, they shook
Half an hour to go before his next exam
And all he could do was Cram, Cram Cram!
But finally all of his thoughts did divert…
“Just one look at Facebook, that couldn’t hurt!”
respect peoples’ gender pronouns or i wont respect you
If you expect people in the real world to use special made up pronouns from Tumblr, you will be left disappointed. You’re going to be extremely lonely when you enter the real world, if you carry those beliefs with you. No one is going to call you zie/thon/co.
alright cool so i take it youve never actually been anywhere in the outside world beyond your myopic little tumblr.com bubble where social justice only exists as a fun set of buzzwords for those whiny speshul snowflake 15 year olds you just cant stand to latch onto
but here’s a fun fact to mull over; there are entire, fully functioning systems of theory and practice surrounding gender, gender constructs, and sexuality that have existed for decades and the fact that youve never bothered taking your head out of your ass doesnt mean they dont exist!
like, holy damn, ive worked in offices where people use alternative pronouns, on political campaigns, in universities, been to meetings and gatherings that take place in the real, lived world, ive met and befriended people who have twice the lived experience i do who happen to use zie/hir pronouns and im going to bet they have a hell of a lot more experience being in the real world than you do
man im not even posting this because im “upset” (but seeing as how your blog is an unending stream of whining at people for being ‘offended’ and ‘oversensitive’ and derailing term #494955847372 im sure youll think otherwise) but this whole idea that queerness only exists on tumblr.com has to stop, its an idea thats perpetuated by people with absolutely infantile ideas of what queer theory actually is, people who run blogs covered in sparklee text and comic sans and who seem to think that theyre somehow the designated arbiters of what is and isnt “real life”
so basically im asking two things of you; 1. stop pretending queer theory only exists on tumblr.com and is solely the home of EDGY SPESHUL SNOWFLAKES or whatever (you don’t even have to agree with it on a fundamental level just stop repeating this fallacy) and 2. please don’t reblog my posts or interact with me because you just seem like a rude and unpleasant person who makes inane assumptions about people and really wants attention and to perpetuate unnecessary drama
Oh God this needs to stop. If I decided today that I believe, with my whole heart, that I should have been born as a dragon, and you must refer to me as “Sir Shmoop-tickler the Second, Lord of Aubergines”, Tumblr would travel to the end of the earth to defend my decision.
But the fact is, that’s fucking insane. And if you overly-competitive social justice bloggers would take the time to breathe instead of yelling, you’d realize I was a fucking idiot, regardless of whether I truly believed my story or not.
Saying “I won’t respect anyone who does X” is just as disrespectful, perhaps moreso, than whoever is doing “X” in the first place. People who say things like what OP said up there are the reason, perhaps the biggest reason, that gender rights is still such a hotly debated issue. [Most] gay guys don’t go around punching straight people for being straight, regardless if the opposite has happened to other people. Being part of an oppressed group does not give you the right to dictate the actions of others.
when people decide your text post needs their opinion
why do i see so many posts like this with reaction gifs that dont make clear what your stance on the issue actually is
when people don’t understand tumblr gifs that don’t make it clear what someone’s stance on an issue is
stop reblogging pictures of grilled cheese and just fucking make some
do you have any idea how easy that shit is
just put a pan on the grill, and throw the sandwich on there
heat until eat
PEOPLE WHO TALK IN THE LIBRARY
Aaaaand, you’re finished! You are one post closer to making Tumblr as close to being Reddit as possible! Congratulations, your post will garner 1000+ notes, your name will be stripped from it, and your dash will be clogged forever. But remember… You’ll be famous!
Reblogging is not blogging.
Blogging involves the discussion of ideas, events, or people. The key thing here is that you’re not simply adding the words “OH MY GOD BECKY LOOK AT THIS OMG WHAT IS AIR” to a picture, a gif, or a movie. You’re actually talking about it.
The creation of content is what defines a blog, whether that content is art, music, or text.
I don’t claim to have a blog here on tumblr. I just have a collection of things that I like.
UWBW: according to tumblr everyone should be fucking. Also according to tumblr no one should fuck.
Cadrien (mD): That seems somewhat contradictory
Slog lamp: tumblr
Cadrien (mD): fair
UWBW: I'm tumbling this
Tumblr, lets sit down and have a chat. It’s about the homestuck community. And just about every other community on Tumblr.
Now let me say first and foremost I do not hate gays (oh, yes, this is going to piss people off already). My “qualifications”: gay roommate for one year of college. He was a great guy, we got along well, and went to parties and whatever a bunch. Yes, he sexiled me. Yes, I sexiled him. No big deal. I have absolutely nothing against gays. To restate, so that you cannot possible misconstrue this: I like gay people, there is nothing wrong with them.
Next, before I really start, I want to say that whatever people do in their spare time is fine with me. My room mate got it on all the time, being a good-looking dude and one hell of a playa. That’s okay with me. Whatever he did in the bedroom was fine, cuz that was his thing.
Now, allow me to piss you off, Tumblr.
Repeat after me: GAY. SEX. IS. NOT. CUTE.
I speak from (secondhand) experience here. Regardless of how attractive the two guys are, one man’s dick is getting covered in shit. That’s nasty, and I say this speaking as a regular guy. If that’s your kink, well… nothing I can do about that.
Secondly, it stains the bed. Nasty. Big brown splotches on sheets and whatnot. We had to throw away a futon last year because my roommate got drunk and wild with his bf.
Thirdly, it makes the room smell like shit. I always knew when my roommate had gotten it on, because the room smelled like fabreeze. Or, if he forgot to spray that on everything in the room, the room smelled like shit. Let us not forget that gay sex, regardless of who is performing it, involves SHIT on DICKS.
Where am I going with all of this, you ask (angrily)?
PLEASE STOP MAKING GAY PORN OF HOMESTUCK CHARACTERS. IT’S NOT CUTE. IT’S GROSS.
Remember, I’m not talking about gay people, just gay sex. You want to have two gay guys hugging, making out, whatever, go for it. Doesn’t bother me. Das’ okay.
But I don’t want to open up Tumblr and see John sticking his dick in Karkat’s ass. That’s nasty. I don’t want to see Jake boning Fin, or Prince Bubblegum fucking Rigby. It’s distasteful. I would say the same about heterosexual porn as well. I have never reblogged that stuff.
If you really still think that gay sex is super-kawaii~, well then who am I to say otherwise.
To wrap this up, remember people: This is just one guy’s opinion. Take that as it is. I’m just asking you if you have given any real thought to what you think is awesome. I know this will offend some people, and I know that a bunch will unfollow me. Still, it was just something I wanted to get out. Thanks for listening.
(inb4 reblogs saying OH SO THIS GUY HAS A GAY FRIEND THAT DOESN’T MEAN- etc).
(inb4 my inbox is full of hatemail)
TL;DR: sorry, go read it, and then immediately unfollow me.
