I think I finally figured something out. Privileged, ignorant white people come on Tumblr and think we only exist here because
they can turn off the computer and walk away and nothing we say or do helps THEM or changes THEIR lives.
So they think that there is of course no way that we affect each others’ lives with our help, financial and emotional support, and funding for projects and whatnot.
Because we don’t do it for THEM.
So basically their cries of “all this stuff you do doesn’t change anything or actually help anybody” really means “none of this is helping meeee, so it doesn’t matter”.
I actually feel less irked about it now.
Because I know my five bucks here and there, my info or personal stories or my “here’s a link to a clinic in your area” is doing what it needs to do.
