Have you actually read my blog? I pretty much just reblog cupcakes most of the time… It is definitely not dedicated to writing posts about how much I hate Greg.
First of all I’d like to establish that I don’t hate Greg. I feel no hate towards him. I do, on the other hand, dislike him and a lot of his actions.
I can see how it for you, as (I’m assuming) a fan, doesn’t seem to make sense for me to write posts about someone I don’t like but to reduce it to only that is to simplify the matter.
If I would simply make posts about someone I don’t like, that might as well be writing posts about Greg because I don’t like the way he dresses. Now that seems like a waste of time in my eyes too. However that’s not what’s going on. People write posts about Greg, a person they dislike, because there’s an element of him causing harm involved.
Greg spreads misinformation about important topics such as mental illness, sexuality and self harm (to give just a few examples). He is a rape apologist, he validates rapists and abusers through his victim blaming posts and videos, and belittles victims/survivors. He is transphobic, sexist and adds to negative stereotypes regarding bi- and homosexuality.
He has treated multiple people (exes and former friends) really badly, there’s evidence of abuse and even rape as well as inappropriate relationships with minors.
I could honestly go on for a long time but I don’t think it’s necessary. If you want to know more it’s all over the onision tag and if you go to my blog you’ll find a scroll thing to the left where you can find out more about why I and many others choose to make posts against this person, Greg, that we don’t like.
It’s not really in my nature to ignore what I know will cause harm to others or will spread misinformation. It is in my nature to take part in the change I want to see and I want to see as few as possible negatively affected by Greg. I also like educating and to have discussion. I don’t spend time writing posts against Greg for his sake, I do it for the people he will reach, and there’s also a more selfish reason behind it and that is because I simply enjoy it as well.
I don’t walk through life simply to be entertained, I think that would make me bored. I think a lot of Greg’s fans who use the argument “don’t like it, don’t watch” perhaps do so because he uses that argument and maybe they don’t think it though on a deeper level. I say that because when you really think about it does it honestly make sense to you to only pay attention to what entertains you? To me, it doesn’t make sense. Ignoring an “evil force” (that’s an exaggeration to easier show my point) will only let it work undisturbed.
I find Greg to be harmful to a lot of people. Sure, now and then he does something good but that can never erase the overwhelming amount of bad things he does. I make posts against him not because I hate him (I don’t) but because I love facts and I care about the people he’ll hurt. You make it sound as if I’ve dedicated an entire blog to Greg and that I’m online 24/7 and it’s my life’s biggest goal to bring him down. I can assure you that is not the case.
I hope that explained to you my stance in this. However at the end of the day it doesn’t really matter how often I’m online and how much I post because it’s my blog and I don’t have to justify my actions to an anon who sent an angry ask four times (identical ask btw) to my inbox. I didn’t have to but i don’t have anything against you, and since you’re not alone in asking this question, I did answer it. If you still feel like my reasoning doesn’t make sense to you it’s ok to get back at me and I’ll elaborate. One ask is enough though, I got it the first time ~.^
