I feel like Tumblr has made me more paranoid about interpersonal interactions. (Newsflash: I have social anxiety. I don't need more.)

But here: I recently asked our ST (GM or DM) if it was cool that I used this one-armed character. He lost his arm, it's a thing, but he's a person (satyr) first, disabled second (or sometime after that, whenever it comes up). But I still got weird about it because I'm scared of stepping on proverbial toes.

The other thing is, half the time, I feel guilty for finding non-white people attractive-- and hear me out on this one, I promise I'm not a racist-- because according to Tumblr, if you appreciate an ethnic group aesthetically, you must be fetishising them. I know I'm not. But I still get that twinge of "oh gods I'm doing it wrong."

This is half of what's wrong with tumblr: the crazy social justice bloggers who actually ARE oversensitive.
