NPR posted an article with a title asking why people don’t read anymore, but the content was just an April Fools joke. Then people started to embarrass themselves.


Pictured: a proper April Fool’s joke.


"I read every day, sometimes many times."

Reblogging again because I love this so hard.

Oh god this is so perfect

Why people online don’t read to the end

A slate article about how most people don’t finish reading articles on the internet lol. 

This is why I have started to learn not to even read the comment section. Most of it is bullshit trolling and arguing, and people didn’t even watch the video, read the article, try the product, etc. 

People just like to act like pseudo-intellectuals and argue with each other about literally NOTHING.

I had wings once. They were strong. They were stolen from me.

My eyes rolled so hard that they’re now permanently inverted.

Online activism changed me from a woman who actively put down other women to one who actively uplifts them. Online activism changed me from a white woman with unchecked privilege who actively oppressed people of color to a woman who has lost friends because she tells them to shut their racist mouths. Online activism has changed me from a woman who hated her body, to a woman who realizes just how beautiful she is. No one EVER tell me online activism isn’t good for anything.


The above is so me. My gut reaction is to cringe at the phrase “online activism” but when you really think about it everything these online communities provide —  free information/literature sharing, community building, consciousness raising, and the free exchange of ideas and critiques are all (more within the self, more passive) forms of activism.

One of my favorite rebuttals of some asshat saying the usual “SJ blogs don’t even do anything because it’s not in real life” was when someone said "If it wasn’t for online activism, I’d still be calling women sluts and whores."

Same for me. And now I’m a sociology major and I go to a women’s college and constantly read/think/write about intersectional feminism. So fuck anyone who thinks online social justice conversations and blogs don’t “do anything.”

Saving this for people who think that online activism and education doesn’t have value.

Through this little blogging website, I learned a fuckton about homophobia, sexism, racism, and took all of it to heart. I know some people scoff at “social justice”, but without it, I would still be homophobic, I’d still be a little sexist, and I’d probably still be saying unintentionally racist bullshit.
