To those bitching about all the “negativity” on their feeds
Listen, I understand your frustration. It must be really hard to hear about all the atrocities that are going on in the world right now. Not just globally — but you probably don’t give a fuck about that. But with your Jewish neighbors. The Muslim community. Your kids’ transgendered friends, who may look like the gender they feel but have to use a restroom for the opposite sex.
I’m sorry it’s hard for you, “upper middle class” white person.
But maybe instead of bitching about it…
Maybe instead of telling us that we need to change our content so YOU have more positive things to write or think about…
Maybe instead of telling us that what we see isn’t actually what’s happening (the “liberal bubble”)…
Here’s what you can do instead:
- Stop following them. You claim your feed is in a bubble…well then GET THE FUCK OUT OF THAT BUBBLE. Start your own. Find your own alt-right friends. Whatever you want. Your choice. I can’t control you, like you can’t control me.
- Stop posting political shit. If the end result isn’t the one you wanted, then stop it. Control your own self instead of trying to control others.
- Walk a mile…this is probably the hardest thing for you to do. Because you don’t see an actual problem. But there are millions of us who are affected by this political shit. You have to understand that these aren’t political issues — they are human rights. But…oh, nevermind. This is the problem. YOU don’t understand that. YOU just want to forget it’s all happening. But we’ll still be outraged when something finally affects your conservative, upper white middle class bubble you keep thinking you’re not living in.
So how about, instead of telling us how to live our lives, what to be outraged at, what we should be posting SO YOU CAN STOP THINKING ABOUT IT, just shut up and worry about yourself. Because that’s obviously what you do best.
