If you’re a feminist, social justice, sex positive or otherwise social specific blog and you have a disclaimer saying “I am not here to educate you” or “This space is for _____ only”, you’re a piece of shit. We WANT people to understand us. We WANT them to ask questions and…

I get where you’re coming from, I really honestly do, but have you considered that maybe people use tumblr to finally get a breather and get away from all that?

Things like “poc only” or “nb only” submission blogs (just random examples) are meant to give a sense of a safe space to people who may not always have a chance to get it. Sometimes you need a break from all the questions and be able to feel like you don’t actually have to justify your existence to some people.

Even if it’s just the tiniest bit of mental relief, that’s all it needs to be. There are endless resources all over tumblr and all over the whole internet that people can access if they were so adamant about educating themselves.

I’m a hijabi and I have to answer every god damn question that comes my way when I’m out and about, no matter whether or not the questioner actually wants to hear what I have to say. Let me tell you this: It is exhausting. I’ve done my best to answer whatever comes to me on tumblr too, it’s not as if I drop it all the second I get online, I do it because I want to.

Some people don’t want to.

Some people can’t handle the constant pressure of knowing that whatever answer you’re providing is directly correlated with how another will perceive you. Shame on you for thinking people might want a bit of reprieve for once.

I get that, but if you’re a social justice blog dedicated to educating and enlightening people, you should probably expect questions. You wearing your Hijab isn’t an invitation for questions. However, if you made a blog dedicated to Hijabis featuring Hijab facts, support for those who are discriminated against for wearing it, testimonials and personal experiences with wearing Hijab, Hijab fashion, ways to wear the Hijab etc. then it would be kind of ridiculous for you to turn away somebody who is asking “What is a Hijab”. Do you see what I mean? I understand not wanting to answer questions, but not when you’re a person who dedicates a lot of their time to educating others. It doesn’t make sense. 

I write about feminism a lot because I’m a feminist. I write about Judaism sometimes because I’m a Jew. Simply BEING a Jewish feminist isn’t an invitation for people to ask me shit. Writing fervently about these things on a social network with a huge emphasis on social justice and education on social justice IS an invitation for people to ask questions. I want people to learn. Social justice is about educating the ignorant. We should actually do that.

It was really more that there’s a difference between, for example, a blog saying “This is a space for queer people run by queer people, please respect our privacy” and a blog with resources for queer folk that is not necessarily run by or strictly for other queer folk snapping at somebody for asking what gender is or where they can find a local LGBT club. I take every possible opportunity to educate my friends on what it’s like to be queer and what feminism means to me because how else are they going to learn? Odds are google will give them less than flattering articles on feminism and queer culture, so it’s better that they hear it from me. So when I see a blog saying “fuck off and use google” or “Oh my god I’m not explaining bisexuality” etc. to their followers, I get really irked. This person asked you a question because they want the answer, and seeing how we’re all fighting to be understood and accepted I think NOT educating ignorant people is the worst thing you can do in this situation.

Seung-Hwan Oh | On Tumblr

Seung-Hwan Oh works and lives in Seoul, where he was born and raised until moving to New York where he studied film and photography at CUNY Hunter College. His work and practice stem from his interest and approach toward other disciplinary thoughts and ideas, from philosophy to sciences. His most recent work, exhibited at Zaha Museum, was inspired by the notion of the first advent of vision in life on earth, and his current work focuses on implementing microbial growth on film as a means to explore the impermanence of matter as well as the material limitations of photography.

If you’re a feminist, social justice, sex positive or otherwise social specific blog and you have a disclaimer saying “I am not here to educate you” or “This space is for _____ only”, you’re a piece of shit. We WANT people to understand us. We WANT them to ask questions and get educated on our lives, our cultures, our oppression. If you attack people for asking questions or refuse to answer when they’re trying to learn, you are not fucking helping. So yeah, it is your fucking job to educate people. It’s everyone’s job.

my mom has been a cop for over 20 years and she is the one who constantly warns me about police aggression and young male cops and told me that if you’re ever alone on a rural road and a cop throws their lights on to put on your four ways and drive to the next gas station before stopping because so many cops are scum and it’s not worth the chance of getting hurt. the fact that SHE feels the need to tell me this shit scares me to death
