Hi! It's Silvia Violet and I'm taking a turn for Stuff We Like. For today’s post, I’m going to talk about one of my favorite things, Tumblr. Now to say I like Tumblr doesn’t exactly describe our relationship. Tumbr is like that man whose deliciously bad and you know he’s terrible for you but you can’t make youself stay away. It’s my guilty pleasure and one of the biggest enemies of productivity and yet, I go back again and again.
One of the things I dearly love about Tumblr is that no matter what kind of blogs you follow - cupcakes, puppies, Renaissance painters - you’ll ultimately end up with gay porn on your dash. It’s as if Tumblr has an algorithm that works like this puppies = men with puppies = men with men with puppies = gay porn. Or cupcakes = people eating cupcakes = men eating cupcakes = men eating cupcakes off other men = gay porn. And if that’s the life lesson we’re to learn from Tumblr, that all things come back to naked men loving all over each other, then I’m good with that. (For the sake of not turning this into a porn blog, I'll give you a milder example)
Tumblr has also brought me so much fandom goodness! I’ve been down the McKirk (McCoy and Kirk from Star Trek, especially Star Trek reboot) rabbit hole oh so many times.
And the things Stony (Steve Rogers and Tony Stark from the Avengers) does to me cannot be discussed in public. And there are so many other ships, a whole armada. I’m a rare bird in that I never wrote or read fanfic before getting into the m/m genre. Tumblr opened that world for me.
Thank you Tumblr for being such a seductive bastard! You can join me in the Tumblr madness here.
