Reblogging my own photo that somehow has amassed nearly 17,000 reblogs without a single credit to me! #tumblr

by SEAN MARC LEE. 

The tumblr experience is a bit like pornography. There are personal journals that do reflect their author’s persona through original content and curation; those are almost like sex, those are the artistic porn. 

Everything else is bad porn, it gets the objective done, but it is meaningless. When a person hits the reblog button 35 times a day, does he have the time to process what each one means to the creator/artist/photographer? It is like going to a museum and running around to see everything, instead of trying to understanding something.

Sure, people like sharing their inspiration. But when this reflex occurs on everything, every subsequent reblog is desensitization. What does 1125 pages of visual feast mean to the viewer? What does it mean to the owner? There is a lot of bad porn.

And then, there is the category of thieves who post things and claim it as their own, because they want more followers, more likes. Those are the real wankers. But they are only harming themselves: to create and to duplicate or to replicate are very different matters. So you wank ten times a day, it doesn’t make you better in bed.

Understandably, it is normal to think about sex several times a day. But once you lose the immediate urgency of trying to digest the stories and meanings, it is just pornography. Take it slow.

P.S.: I used this photo from Sean in this, so here’s my proper bow and credit to him. This isn’t a wank post.
