You either know what it is or you don't.

Tumblr should not be talked about in public or to people who don't have Tumblr.

Tumblr is freedom.
Me: *typing* Today I heard someone mention Tumblr in a public area, I weep for the future

A toxic cesspool of a website where people claim that you're allowed to speak freely, but is filled with a great deal of intolerant morons who take any chance they have to snap at you and send death threats via anonymous ask. Generally divided into the 'hipster' and 'fandom' halves that are supposedly at war. Lots of social justice 'warriors' that will spew hatred even for people who are innocently ignorant of issues and tell them to educate themselves without helping them (and being right by 'default' since you're evil to argue with them), people who fetishize homosexual relationships and force it onto every male character they see while claiming they're pro-gay rights, demonize female characters while preaching feminism, obsess sickeningly over the UK/England/Great Britain (or mostly just the stars of Sherlock), and threaten to kill anyone who gets in the way of their otps or doesn't share their "Feels" about them. (Such as celebrities' significant others).

Hell on the internet.
Average tumblr blogger: "Tumblr is the best website EVAR!11!!!! But stay out if you're from facebook no one needs you people here CHECK YOUR PRIVILEGE CIS SCUM!"

a hipster watering hole aka a too-indie-for-you blog.

chances are you already have one or else you wouldn't be searching for it here.

mostly filled with filipino bloggers who mostly blog about pictures of triangles in space.
they like to use internet memes, most commonly 4chan memes, and claim it as their own.
1. blogger: 'FFFFFUUUUU' should be tumblr's catchphrase because we made it up and made it famous lolol

a place for self-importance/communal self-loathing
I need to get on Tumblr. I need to tell people how I'm too good for life. How I hate people. How I hate myself. How I just like cats and triangles.

a place for hipsters to post picures and gifs about hipster things. common subjects: girls backs, hands with lots of jewelry, vampire weekend, arcade fire, kissing, naked people, weed, pretty girls smoking, harry potter, celebrities from tv shows particularly skins and gossip girl and other artsy photographs.
I am so addicted to tumblr, I just can't stop reblogging pictures of pretty girls in front of a sunset wearing denim shorts and bracelets smoking weed.
