So I recently got an ask from someone who received death threats from horrible people. Many of my friends (and myself) experience harassment on tumblr. It’s something anyone can experience, but I’ve noticed it tends to happen to marginalized people most, whether because they are of color, queer, female, and/or trans, etc. Sometimes simply giving voice to truths about discrimination and oppression in our society is enough to attract unjustified harassment and even threatening messages.
I decided to make a tutorial on how to defend yourself on tumblr. I do hope people add more to this though, so I will continue to update it as I receive more feedback.
