STOP! Before you ask that SJ blogger what they do in the “real world” to be an activist or how they are an activist “outside of just blogging on tumblr/the internet”, consider the following:
- You sound awfully presumptuous. It may not be your intention, but it sounds like you’re assuming that no SJ blogger on tumblr promotes their views anywhere else, when many bloggers are actually devoted to educating people in their personal lives. Some even make a career out of it, or dedicate their education to it.
- The “real world” and the internet are not separate entities. The internet exists within the real world. People on the internet exist within the real world, and people in the real world exist on the internet. If it exists on the internet, it exists in the real world too.
- It suggests that blogging is not just as valid a form of activism as anything else. Activism comes in many different forms, which is a great thing, because some forms of activism are less accessible to some people, whether it be for financial reasons, safety reasons, because of a disability, or whatever else.
- It also suggests that you think that something is not valid unless it is also stated in what you consider the “real world” which is faulty logic for two reasons: for reason number one, refer to point #2; reason number two, these ideas were not created on tumblr. These ideas have existed for a very long time. They are not new just because you’ve never seen them before.
- Not everyone who makes posts or reblogs content that may fall under the category of “social justice” consider themselves activists or social bloggers. Many of us are just blogging about oppression that we see or personally experience. We may choose to make political statements about our lives, but our lives are not political statements.
- We do not owe it to you or to anyone to be an activist. We should not even have to fight for justice in the first place. We should not have to actively fight for something that is freely given to others.
- Tumblr provides anonymity, which is a blessing when most other places in the world are very hostile to us. Many people feel safe to talk about their oppression on tumblr, but speaking about their oppression outside of the internet can be very daunting and very dangerous. Many people prioritize their safety over public activism.
- Our views are no less valid if we choose not to talk about them in public. Our oppression is no less valid if we choose not to talk about it in public. Our lives are no less valid if we choose not to talk about them in public.
