I’ve never done this before, but I think it’s time to do something.
See this man? He is standing everyday on this spot, in Zagreb, the capital of the small European country Croatia. His daughter is only one of the million girls who has been diagnosed with anorexia and he is indicating the discrimination in the treatment of the eating disorders and asking the people to help.
Now see the display beside him? That is only one of the numerous displays put across the country in order to collect enough citizen’s votes for the initiative “In the name of the family” whose aim is: “to gather all the individuals, families and civic organizations which promote common human values and religious associations, communities and movements- everyone who believe the marriage is the community of ONLY men and woman.
The main point is - these attempts of people trying to take the basic human rights from the others, fighting against someone’s else freedom to be and live how each individual wants - are the ones being so fiercely organized, pushed and heard in the public. The hate, the rejection, the fight between each individual is what people hear and put their energy into, while the opportunity to help is being pushed aside and abandoned. Why to think about the questions of life and death, while you can organize the society to live by the “normal” rules one group sets.
50000 million kunas, needed for the referendum to happen could be directed towards the real issues- towards the sick and the poor- the ones who really need help and not pushed into the direction of hate and prejudices.
Next time, while you walk down the street, look at the man and the sign he is holding. There is enough suffering in the world without the additional hate and rejection!
uhhm no idea D= were they already made graphics or just inbox messages? and were you on anon? honestly I would just resubmit it, probably be easier then trying to find out what happened to it xD
I lost my original copy of Philosopher’s Stone. I hope some misunderstood kid picked it up, and it changed their life.
I taught myself to read ‘big’ books via this series, I read Philosopher’s Stone at the age of 4, in 2002, reading along with the audio tape and with my dad to help me. I’ve read Philosopher’s Stone 10 times now. I spent hours ‘playing Harry Potter’ on the weekends and I honestly don’t remember
some advice: if you create something and put it on the internet that you want credit for, make sure you watermark it.
that is, put your url somewhere on the image where it is not easy to crop it out or erase it in photoshop. (this will not keep people from recreating the image themselves)
and to those asking, no theres nothing that can be done about the previous posters problem even if they had given the thiefs username. In fact, that angelina jolie leg meme was hugely popular and went viral in less than 24 hours of her taking the picture it’s from, so it’d be impossible to tell who did it first anyway.
I feel betrayed by the Harry Potter Fandom. Last year I created this image of Severus Snape, many of you have probably seen it. It was promptly stolen and reuploaded by another “fan” who received 80,000+ notes on it, while my original only got 200. It’s a real kick in the guts to see someone else get credit for something you’ve worked hard on; and the credit being given to them by people you thought were your friends, the rest of your fandom. I haven’t been able to enjoy Harry Potter since, nor have I been able to participate in the fandom due to an overwhelming sense of forsakenness.
