The Philosophers' Tumblrs...
- Socrates: never posts anything but occasional reblogs (with critical tags). Sometimes posts cryptic snippets about his philosophy in tag form. Spends his time sending other users multiple asks goading them into fiercely analytical arguments.
- Plato: blogs obsessively about Socrates. Sends him a steady stream of fanmail and sometimes gay porn.
- Sappho: all lesbian porn all the time. And sometimes tag form poetry.
- Nietzsche: posts and reblogs creepy pictures and really obscure art. Reblogs rival philosophers' posts with harsh and critical commentary. Occasionally posts his own philosophies, always over 1000 words in length, never under a read more.
- Sartre: reblogs ALL the gifsets. Renowned for writing the absolute best and longest tag existentialist character analysis that gives everyone ALL THE FEELS. Mostly reblogs art and gifsets but sometimes does original posts talking about his favourite characters and their existentialist journeys. Again, giving everyone all the feels.
- Simone de Beauvoir: blogs the most out of all of them. All of the posts on sexual health awareness, sexual orientation, humanism, and gender. Reblogs Sartre's gifset reblogs and posts his tags with her opinions (never in tag form). Talks a lot about polyamory and reblogs a lot of Sappho's porn. Often has lengthy conversations with Sartre that clog up everyone's dashes.
- Mill: does nothing but troll the social justice sallies.
I am awfully greedy; I want everything from life. I want to be a woman and to be a man, to have many friends and to have loneliness, to work much and write good books, to travel and enjoy myself, to be selfish and to be unselfish… You see, it is difficult to get all which I want. And then when I do not succeed I get mad with anger.
