favorite tumblrs

Post by Prajnaparamita on Wed Feb 18, 2015 2:58 pm

So I don't have a tumblr account. And this is very, very intentionally, because I know if I did I would never emerge from my bedroom or spend a second not staring at a screen if I did. I can spend hours and hours mindlessly scrolling through the tumblrs of people I neither know nor care about and I will fully realize how stupid what I'm doing is, but I'll do it anyway.

For example, I once spend a good hour or so reading the accounts of a gay man from New Zealand who self described as a "femme, flamboyant top", who spent all his time whining about how difficult it is to be femme and flamboyant as a top and how nobody wanted to date a femme and flamboyant top and how nobody understands his struggles because he's a femme and flamboyant top. There was also selfies of every single article of clothing he ever put on his body. It sounds hilarious on paper, but in actuality was a descending spiral of pure vapidness.

Another which I read while peering out through my fingers over my eyes in a mixture of horror and pity was a middle aged brony who mixed up photos of himself in pony costumes with that of naked ladies and crying about how horny and socially awkward he was. (Please understand, I have nothing against liking MLP or naked ladies, both are lovely, it was reading it and going "Geez, I'm sorry dude... I'm really don't know what I can say to you..." Neutral )

So yeah, that's about the level of quality of the tumblrs I will randomly stumble upon, mindlessly scroll through before eventually closing the window out of shame and disgust at all the time I have wasted. Also this usually happens at 3 am when I can't sleep, so that might also impair my judgement around quality. But!

I know there's gotta be people on tumblr who are brilliant, who have interesting things or funny things to say, make cool comics or beautiful art or have insightful thoughts on meaningful issues! So who do you follow on tumblr, who there brightens your day or makes you think? Any and all recommendations appreciated!

Ooh, depends on what you're looking for!

I follow some very talented artists and crafters who post fantastic art, including a couple whose comics are pretty much only on their Tumblr - including one journal-style comic about a woman's recovery through anorexia and mental health diagnosis.

http://misspixnmix.tumblr.com/
http://karenin.tumblr.com/
http://bustygirlcomics.com/
http://ohmisterfinch.tumblr.com/
http://doxiequeen1.tumblr.com/

Then there's a brilliant tumblr called Medieval POC which seeks to rebalance the issues with racial bias, assumptions piled on old bad data and elitism within archaeology and our understanding and analysis of history.
