Hey there fellow tumblr users! Boy do I have some good advice for you today! I know some of you have been troubled by Supernatural’s sexism/racism/homophobia/transphobia/etcetcetcetc, and a lot of your criticism has simply been dismissed with a “blahblahblah… if you don’t like it don’t watch the show”
I’m here to tell you today why that is exactly what you should be doing!! Because if something is problematic you should just shut up and ignore the problem. In fact, this advice is so stellar, it can apply to other areas of your life!
- Kids, one of your friends getting beat up after school? Don’t tell an adult! Don’t try to stop it! Just walk away and don’t look back. You don’t like seeing them get hurt, so simply don’t look at it! I would advise that you end the friendship completely, to avoid creating any more problems for yourself!
- Dang, are you the one getting beat up after school! I repeat: DO NOT TELL ANYONE!!! The only way to handle this situation is to stop going to school. You don’t like it, why go? Right?
- See a child getting abducted outside your house? Don’t try and stop it. You don’t have to give any details to the police to try and find the kid! Simply look away and dial up your realtor, you’re moving, buddy.
I could go on, but I think you get the point because you’re a smart person. And a smart person would do just as these messages that all these anons are sending to your inbox — in between all the death threats, insults, and hypocrisy — say. I’m sure this is advice any counselor or therapist would give you, too. Don’t try to change, don’t try to make things better, just leave it alone and stop bothering everyone else.
