Stop following whoever you follow they clearly suck.
Anyone that calls people heartless for not rebloging something — or says "it won't make your blog look ugly" like that's the reason you're not doing it — can chew on a rusty nail. People reblog what they chose to reblog.
On the same note, not rebloging every "reblog if _" that applies to me doesn't mean it no longer applies to me. Have you seen the "reblog if you're not homophobic post" that goes around occasionally? I always see it with someone saying, "All my followers better reblog this." I mean, do people really see things like that and think, "Fuck I better reblog that or people will think I'm a homophobe." Or, with other posts, "If I don't reblog this I don't have a heart. I have to prove to people that I care about these things."?
A 14 year old guy in my town committed suicide. That didn't even show up in the local newspaper, other than a little memorial thing written by the family on the "just died" page.
But I heard the story through my mum, whose friend knew the mother of the guy who died. He texted his girlfriend, telling her this would be the last she heard of him, and then he jumped. She went out to look for him and found him dead.
Wouldn't surprise me if the story I've gotten was altered somehow, everyone has done the whisper-the-word-to-the-next-person-game, but yeah.
When I say 'guy' and 'dude' I usually mean it in a gender neutral way. As do most of the people I know and a good portion of society. I hate it when I am with a group of friends and I say 'hey guys' and one of the girls gets offended because she feels like I wasn't talking to her when I was. I'm not gonna say 'Hey guys and girl!' Because honestly, THAT is kind of offensive. It demonstrates a perceived separation of the sexes, which is bullshit. So I use them to refer to a group or a person. Sorry, but I'm not the only one to use those terms in a gender neutral way.

I really don't get how not wanting to see 1000000000000000000000's of the same memorial photos over and over, and I don't want to be told I'm a bad person for not reblogging them all makes me the type of person you described
