People on tumblr are way too passive about big issues. Every little issue that shows up, sign a petition.
Is that the end-all? Seriously? Is this what people are doing to make it feel like they’re making a difference, because its a load of shit. Get up and do something. Assemble a protest, write/call to your senator/governor/etc. Clicking a button to sign a petition is probably the most minimal contribution you can make. Its because everyone acts so damn tough on the internet but can’t even make eye contact in public. If you want to make a real change, then you’re going to have to put in a real effort. Not just sitting behind a computer whining about the problem.
And before you get the pitchforks and yell ‘hypocrite’. This is the only medium that I can express this opinion to the people that are the problem, so don’t even start.
But my point is this. If you have a problem with the way things are being done, be it on a local or a larger scale, get up and do something. Get angry and educate people about it so your cause can gain supporters. You need to put in a real effort to make that change. Don’t just sign an online petition, there is so much more you can do but you’re not willing to put in the effort.
