Awareness

Posted on Mon, Dec 6, 2010 at 3:33 PM

OK, I have to let this out. So everybody is posting a pic of their favourite cartoon character on everyone's favourite invasive social network. This "awareness" shit does nothing. Its like the color of your bra thing a few months ago. People post this shit that is actually completely unrelated to the original cause so they look like they care. It does nothing but make them look like a good person. No, they are actually doing fuck all for that cause. Armchair activism. Most never donate a dime or a minute of their time. You know who the leading charitable donor in the world is? Anonymous. You should do something that is right because it is the right thing to do, not to promote yourself as a good person (see everybody's favourite lemon loving Irish rock star). If you're not aware that kids get abused or people die of breast cancer or the dozen other things people try to make you "aware" of, then you must be living under a fucking rock on the Goddamn moon. Try dressing up as a cancerous prostate for a month instead. —Anonymous
