I remember being in this one rp group on DA, where we had two rp chat rooms, one for general rps and one for smut. On the smut one, we tended to exchange smut art (which was probably against DAs guidelines)
One time, there were a few of us on there, and someone kept posting porn of this one super popular slash ship, and one person left. This one girl, who was basically a huge problem who no one wanted to confront, started calling her homophobic, and harassed her on the main chat, while acting like she was this champion of gay rights. Hell, I didn’t like that super popular pairing, despite being gay myself. For all we knew, the person who left the chat could have just disliked the pairing, and was sick of everyone shoving it down their throat, like I was. Or maybe they just got bored because it was the same three people talking about the same thing, like I was.
I really wish someone would have just confronted her, because I know she made the rp unpleasant for a lot of people.
what’s this? my first anon hate?
yes! this means I’m official!
anyway, putting something on the internet for all to see means that anyone is free to criticize it. I have just as much right to call someone’s RP awful as you do to call this blog awful.
If somebody’s “style of rping” is so obnoxious and/or terrible that they make RPing miserable for people who actually care about good writing, then it deserves to be made fun of.
Don’t worry about the SJWs. They won’t be the majority of your audience.

So admin Kai is rising from the deep once again to be a total reblogging hack (lol). I keep seeing asks like this popping up on my dash, and I just want to say something about the social justice crowd in the role-playing community.
Just fucking don’t.
This kind of treatment over fiction is a crock of shit and people who do it should be ashamed of themselves. There is always at least one character who will take race, gender, social status, etc. over the top and beyond the limits of offensive. Save your vitriol for them. You encounter a character that’s incredibly “normal” or “average” and you don’t like it? Kindly go fuck yourself. Acting like it’s wrong to have a fictional entity that falls within normal societal standards is ridiculous and it makes it that much harder for people to take you seriously.
This kind of shit needs to stop.
Somehow the context makes it even more fucked up
I’ve been thinking about it for a while, but I probably won’t just yet. It’s just really disheartening when you just want to share your baby and you get so much bullshit handed back, or you have to watch certain other blog’s that have built up their entire existence upon lies still get so much attention. I know Tara feels it too.
Last night I uploaded a video of Koda that made me really happy and the first thing I saw was it reblogged by an RP that had a caption like “This is (insertname) the fox when I get home from work!” and it just kinda made me wake up really upset because it’s like, why bother if people aren’t interested in Koda, but reblogging her for purposes like that?
Idk man, tl;dr, I just felt really shitty and unappreciated, but I don’t want to be a whinger so I’ll get over it!
If it helps, that person who reblogged your content going “lol look at my fox” in a RP context was really rude and I’m not the only person who thought so. I’m putting this on a blog that actually had followers so more people can see it.
It re-exposed me to the baffling part of Tumblr RP that’s basically like ‘what if this person had a blog’ and it was full of gifs and super dumb. I hope people start realizing that it’s weird and not okay to take other peoples’ photos and videos and artwork and use them for their RPs.
