I generally feel like I don’t fit in.
1)I’m 6-10 years older than most of the people on here.
2)My “primary” hobby is reading. Most book related content on Tumblr is decontextualized quotes, bad fan art, or pictures of book shelves. I’ve been on here for about 18 months, and I can’t really remember having any particularly meaningful discussions about books.
3)The format of Tumblr makes it hard to have discussions.
4)I’m tired of the outrage that infects Tumblr and most social media. With Tumblr in particular, I’m tired of media being constantly analyzed through the social justice lens. Tempests in teacups abound.
5)There’s a lot of movies, shows, comic books, etc. that people on Tumblr REALLY seem to be into that I am either ambivalent towards or actively dislike.
So basically, you guys aren’t into what I’m into, I’m not into what you’re into, you like to discuss media in a way I don’t, and I lack the emotional maturity and grace to not be pissed off by it all.
Thanks for the funny image memes guys.
