[–]GenLifeformAndDiskOS 216 points217 points  (3 children)

It does not add up.

Sticky? Check.

Popular sub? Check.

Lods of subscribers? Check.

Why does it have 0 score?

ITT: People dislike tumblr.

Jesus, who cares where /r/showerthoughts posts its stuff. Does it really bother you?

[–][deleted] 254 points255 points  (9 children)

Gonna post on 9Gag, FunnyJunk, Chive, and BuzzFeed as well?

Socialist media.

Get Ready 4Chan!

[–]Ozwegian 37 points38 points  (4 children)

All these people with their heads up their ass about what social media site they use, if that's what you pride yourselves on, you're beyond help.

[–]VemundManheim 23 points24 points  (2 children)

It isn't pride in reddit, it's hate on tumblr.

[–]Chiiwa 7 points8 points  (1 child)

But why? Tumblr is better than the likes of 9gag and others that have nothing but stolen or dumb content. Tumblr has a far more diverse community where you follow what you want to see and there are tons of OC there and information to learn. It's who you choose to follow, just like you can follow horrible subs here or follow ones you like.

I'm just thankful someone made out in time to try and insult everybody.

Quick explanation for anyone interested:

There is a very popular Tumblr account that reposts all ShowerThoughts content that hits the first page of this subreddit. We certainly welcome users to share our great content - all we hope is for these pages to provide a link back to the original content. This unofficial page does not do that - so, we decided to make our own. Our page provides links back to each and every Showerthought posted - our effort to make sure each of you gets the credit you deserve.

We know Tumblr isn't the most welcomed word here on reddit for some, and we understand this post might rub some users the wrong way. To those people, feel free to click 'hide' under the post title.

I am now slightly less butthurt.

[–]elyisgreat 33 points34 points  (25 children)

It's funny how downvoted this is. What is Reddit's deal with Tumblr?

[–]torcsandantlers 55 points56 points  (16 children)

Tumblr told Reddit to quit being racist once. And as such, they are impinging on Reddit's free speech and are therefore the very definition of evil.

[–]CitrusJelly 20 points21 points  (8 children)

Being serious here, but didn't they call us misogynistic?

[–]torcsandantlers 20 points21 points  (6 children)

Yeah, that too

[–]Tia00017 7 points8 points  (5 children)

And they say that every white person is racist by default, POC can't be racist, men can't be raped, all men are sex crazed violent rapists, and many many other things.

[–]smile_wide_today 10 points11 points  (3 children)

Ummm no. I mean, sure some people on Tumblr do say that kind of stuff. So do some people on Reddit. Every site is going to have shitty people on it, that doesn't make the site as a whole shitty. Plus you're saying this as though there are no horrible people on Reddit. In my experience the bad people on Reddit are actually more popular than the bad people on Tumblr.

[–]Tia00017 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I agree that there are some bad people on reddit, and there's some good people on tumblr, but I haven't seen anyone on reddit say any of the statements above unless in a sarcastic sense. Reddit agrees with the exact opposite of those statements.

I could be wrong though.

[–]smile_wide_today 5 points6 points  (1 child)

No, I think that you are right about that. My point was just that there are bad people, even though at opposite ends, on these sites.

[–]Tia00017 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Of course. There's many bad subs on here.

[–]genieus 1 point2 points  (6 children)

More details? Was it the tumblr staff, or just a handful of users?

[–]NitrogenNitrate 10 points11 points  (4 children)

Tumblr has a collective hive mind of that ideology.

[–]snipps_ 21 points22 points  (3 children)

Just like Reddit

[–]NitrogenNitrate 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Every website has a hive mind now that I think of it.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Not youtube or google.com

[–]Jozarin 6 points7 points  (0 children)

No, their 'minds' are formed from the google AI research servers.

[–]SadGhoster87 6 points7 points  (0 children)

"Tumblr stereotyped all of Reddit!" they say, stereotyping all of Tumblr.

[–]ConfusedGrasshopper 9 points10 points  (4 children)

tumblr is the home of the people that south park make fun of

[–][deleted] 17 points18 points  (3 children)

reddit is the home of adults that watch cartoons

[–]VemundManheim 4 points5 points  (0 children)

You got the good side of tumblr, cupcakes and good softcore porn, and the bad side, feminazis and pronouns from hell.

Those posters were trying too hard to be anti-parent and PC.

[–]Car__54 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'd give it credit for an image representing each shower thought, but that's only true of it's 3 most recent posts.

[–]PATXS 10 points11 points  (2 children)

excuse me

[–]PiggehPerson 41 points42 points  (1 child)

You're excused.

[–]PATXS 49 points50 points  (0 children)

Thanks, I've been waiting.

[–]habesojamilchmitdass 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think I rather not.
