The girl with the housekeeper is talking about deleting her blog because of the one post. I think that deleting one’s blog because of internet drama is one of the first steps to becoming an chronic purveyor of said drama. Most of the people who make these threats don’t follow through. Those who do follow through will generally come back and say or do something just as bad, if not worse. The best way to make drama go away is to ignore it. Plain & simple.
Ignore it? Including the comments you, yourself said to and about her? Would you have said all of those things, reblogging her post, if you just expected her to ignore them?
Obviously, she is hurting because people out there blew it way out of proportion and are now calling her a racist. If the same things were being said about me and 75% of tumblr was coming to my ask box and attacking me, I’d contemplate deleting too.
Here’s the thing. If people would have reblogged her post and stated their opinions in a civil way instead of calling her things like ignorant, stupid, immature, and a brat it would be a different story. But the majority of people were just attacking her. Yourself included.
If she is allowed to demean a person based on their lack of skill in a certain language, then why is it suddenly wrong for people to demean her? Because she was ranting? Well, I was ranting, too. Is my rant suddenly so much worse than hers because she can read mine in response? She called her housekeeper stupid. I called her ignorant and a brat. Ignorance fits given her original post and her subsequent justifications. Brat pretty much fits, too, since she seems to think that she is entitled to 1.) a housekeeper and 2.) a housekeeper who knows her language. It makes her sound like she thinks she is better than the housekeeper and (potentially) people who can’t afford to have help and have to make it without having someone to come in and clean up their mess.
