It’s a big misconception that “most of Tumblr brought this on themselves!! wahhhh”
What really happened is this -
/pol/, the politics section of 4chan, posted a fake 4chan raid on /b/, the random section of 4chan, which was this
/pol/ was basically trolling /b/, and in fact /pol/ actually despises tumblr politics, but apparently there were a few tumblr SJWs hanging around 4chan that actually saw this post and took it seriously and raided on July 4th.
What they didn’t expect is that they didn’t know how to work the 4chan website. 3 feminist threads were posted in /b/ and promptly banned, and that was the end of said “tumblr raid”
It’s not 4chan, but /b/ (random, a section of 4chan) responsing to this “raid.”
Their response was obviously to “”troll”” with gross images from various corners of the internet because they know how “”sensitive”” the tumblr community is about triggers - they often post disturbing pictures/videos of murder, gore, animal abuse, rape, and hardcore porn on their boards they are desensitize to so they basically dumped folders of that shit in what they believed to be the most visited tags.
now they are trying to do things like photoshop selfies on porn and post them everywhere - which they can get arrested for if reported, because it’s slander, sexual harrassment, harrassment and even possibly pedophilia/possession of child porn if the selfie was of someone underaged. i honestly didn’t care much about this raid until then.
so to conclude?
- /pol/ started it
- those few SJWs were stupid wandering into territory they didn’t know about
- i think /b/ was just as stupid to overreact and retaliate like they did because they acted like Tumblr was a hivemind of some sort that came up with this idea when most of us probably want nothing to do with 4chan
what’s really funny is that they were so butthurt by this “”raid”” they wanted to take it to this level lmao, but i don’t think they care, most of them are misogynistic MRA dudebro neckbeards that can’t spend a second away from the computer screen and are here to laugh at us
