christmas eve what about christmas adam
happy christmas adam to all men’s rights activists
Please stop pestering us with things like this. This has nothing to do with men fighting for their rights. Eve is short for ‘evening’. Please don’t turn activism into a joke. Thanks.
Someone isn’t having a good christmas adam

I honestly had “New Amsterdam” stuck in my head for the past 24 hours now, which is odd as I haven’t heard it or bothered to find it for years. And then this shows up.
Decent song, though. Was good painting music.
Lumiose City is exactly like Paris in that my ability to get completely and utterly lost in it never ceases to amaze me.
Link to bigger version since tumblr will probably shrink it ffff.
This was fun!!
Thank you grace for suggesting it. >.>; And goo for suggestions/help.
I absolutely love it, have I said it yet? Especially the blues on the hands and feet, and the scarf, and the floof.
“There’s a lot of darkness out there… but you know something? We wouldn’t notice any of it if it weren’t for all those little pinpricks of light. Planets and stars. And that’s where I go whenever I feel sad. The next bit of light in the darkness, keep on moving. Never look back. Well, hardly ever.”— The Eighth Doctor, Scapegoat (via victorianfae)
What we see through social media is a generation of ignorant social activists. Young men and women all too willing to care about and defend something they don’t truly understand and refuse to educate themselves further on because they assume the limited information they receive has been vetted by someone more knowledgeable than themselves. This happens on both sides of the fence, with both conservatives and liberals.
I’ve seen arguably intelligent young men and women stand up at banquets and rallies, demanding answers about things like healthcare, DOMA, federal military actions. Asking questions about things they’ve seen on Facebook, on twitter, things that they’ve taken little to no time to research for themselves, and they look like fools. No matter their age, they paint themselves with a red mark that announces ‘I’m not mature enough to be here, to discuss these issues’.
But even so, it isn’t truly about age. It’s about social awareness. You are not discounted until you make a mistake. Say the wrong thing or quote the wrong statistic. Until then, your legitimacy remains intact.
Tumblr is like this.
I’ve seen people furious over gay rights legislation that doesn’t actually exist. Wars that haven’t happened. Most recently text posts with tens of thousands of notes alleging that China and Russia are going to go to war with the US over Syria.
Blogs relaying damaging misinformation written by individuals who can’t seem to be bothered to read a newspaper or use google properly. This is a crippling trend, and no one sees it.
These people get untold attention and affirmation until one person with a large enough follower count points out the flaw in their argument. Corrects the mistake, and shifts the tide. But this doesn’t fix the thousands of people who liked and reblogged the original post. The damage is done.
If there is one thing I’ve learned from working on political campaigns, very little is more damaging than an activist who argues only one side of the story without recognizing the existence of the other; because your opinion, no matter how solid and seemingly factually based, is invalid the second your audience realizes they know more than you.
And the result of all of this is a generation of young activists who don’t understand why they aren’t being taken seriously.” —

Cue dozens of people Googling the Syria crisis.
But this just reiterates that Tumblr never has been or will be a legitimate news source.
