Unfortunately, I've grown used to being ignored on Tumblr whenever I address any misconceptions or bad behaviour (like what happened with the 'Prince Koyangi' troll tumblr). Well, not just me, but I'm the one who usually
dealing with this stuff in our system; the rest of us just can't be bothered much with Tumblr SJ. I'm getting sick enough of it to not even really identify with it, heh.
The idea that you Must Be Like Everyone Else™ to be 'functional' is incredibly frustrating. It's this...one-size-fits-all definition of health, of selfhood, of identity, and it's restrictive and ignores the diversity of human ability, cognition and experience.
There's a lot that reminds me of 'survivor culture' too. We came to the plural community a bit later, but there were still vestiges of it when we came across it, like on some of those old classic multiplicity websites, and from some systems we met, both online and off. The One True Way of Plurality, the lack of empowerment, the 'therapist is always right' mentality—all of it. It's just being given a shiny Web 2.0 veneer, and it's easier to spread the ideas through a reblogging mechanism like Tumblr than it is something like static Geocities and Tripod webpages, Diaryland/Diary-X journals or private Delphi/Topica mailing lists.
