A little venting out is going to be done below.
Ok so looks like gay marriage support/opposition is the new black. Or at least thats what my Facebook says. Now, the real question is - do they REALLY care? I mean - i watched so many bandwagons come and go without actually changing anything, its not even amusing anymore. Kony2012, Thatchicthatkilledherself, School shootouts and now gay marriages. I watch people who post breakfasts and drunk pictures on daily basis start caring about those thing for a week or two (or three, depending on for how long our fair and honest press can stretch it) and then... just forgetting about it. Its really amusing. Even funnier - when i try to tell them that they dont actually care about it and just being a part of a wave infuriates them! I am being called heartless and cruel (while i prefer honest, of course). Thus, i decided to speak out here, and maybe start a new trend - ANTI-TRENDING. Seriously, that stuff has to go. We should let people know that they dont care (or, if you ask me, convince them to try and see into the root of the problem, not just enjoy being a part of hype about it)! Be honest to others and yourself!
All that said, i really would love to hear your thoughts. Do you think those trends actually change anything? Or they're just being a huge annoyance for everyone for a week or two...
By the way, loved how Kony 2012 campaign ended.
- Jason Russell, co-founder of the charity Invisible Children, is being held in a psychiatric ward
- He was reported to be masturbating in public and running through the streets wearing only his underwear
- His wife, Danica, has blamed his breakdown on the attention and personal criticism the YouTube film has generated
- The Ugandan government has released a YouTube response - dismissing the 'slick' video as giving a false impression of the country
