Fuck sharing shit on Facebook.
Seriously, I’m never going to ever use it for anything other than my own pictures, art, or social networking. Too many stupid people and stupid shit circulating. I hardly ever share things like articles regarding social issues on Facebook, but almost every time I do someone has to inflame the controversy. Now I don’t normally mind controversy, where would we be without it? Plus as someone who is aiming for a career specializing in the humanities, of course I find social issues to be quite important and understand that controversy is often a necessary part of societal change. But no, just because I shared something that may give you a glimpse of my values does not mean I want to have a long ass debate or to have to explain myself in front of my 1thousandsomething (I’m way too lazy to go on a deletion spree) “friends” due to a condescending remark or someone wanting to argue every fucking time I share something. I’ve even had people message me saying things along the lines of wow, you share interesting things, but there always has to be that one person basically raging and/or just shitting all over it. Plus they always assume that if its an article, I must completely agree with the person who wrote it, which is not always the case. Again, I want to specialize in the humanities…perspectives are everything to me, and that is a frequent reason why I share things along those lines - to make people aware of other perspectives.
