Hey, guess what, makes me want to punch an annoying brat even more!

Have you sought professional help for your anger issues? Not being mean, I genuinely think it would do you some good to talk to somebody.

Who needs sleep when we've got love?
Who needs keys when we've got clubs?
Who needs please when we've got guns?
Who needs peace when we've gone above?

No such thing. Like the ALF is to the AR movement, it's rumor used by those in charge to demonize anime fandom. A bogeyman. Don't let anyone convince you otherwise.

I honestly didn't even know what the sudden influx of cartoons was even about. I had to ask a coworker.

slops, gloops, and gruels.

The most annoying part to me is that some people were posting muppets like those characters from "Dinosaurs."

I'm pretty sure that doesn't count as a cartoon. It was a live action show.

I didn't even know that's what it was for. I just saw cartoon characters and figured, "hey it must be favorite cartoon characters from your childhood!".

So I make up the "out of the loop margin".

In other words, I don't really think changing a profile pic is going to make much difference.

I do not understand/What it is I've done wrong/Full of holes/Check for pulse/Blink your eyes/One for yes/Two for no/I have no idea what I am talking about/I am trapped in this body and can't get out-Radiohead

Now you've made Pedobear angry.
He's coming for you.
Seriously.

As for the facebook meme, I said this when I saw it on Know Your Meme and I'll say it again: What is this actually supposed to do for child abuse?

Enjoying the view over at http://forum.veggieviews.com/

I'd say thank you to you! I used to work as a receptionist in social services and I thought the social workers were amazing. They get SUCH a bad rap because the media only talks about when things go WRONG, when there are so many other cases of social workers HELPING. I couldn't do the job, you guys are the best.

I heard about this, but I didn't realize it had anything to do with raising awareness about child abuse. I don't really see the connection.

The whole thing seemed offensive, and I was never abused as a kid. It just seemed to be trivialising the issue as if it's some quaint little cause rather than the serious, horrible thing it is - the effects of which can last a lifetime.
