What in God's name is this?
"I am sick to death"
"making fun of every fandom"
"Take him down"
Oh for Christ's sake,
Change.org is a petition website
driven by the idea that
they're a platform for the little guy,
a way to get your vision out there without the aid
of powerful supporters or celebrities,
to empower those without a real voice
to craft a world in which no one is powerless.
Sounds like the best idea ever, right?
Sure, the website might do good to a certain extent
and at least the bigger campaigns are bringing
some attention to important issues
that need dealing with.
But change.org has gradually become a laughable
compilation of complainers and whiners who have
no real idea what they're talking about.
They throw out statistics like:
'This many million people are taking action'
when in reality,
99% of these people who are taking action
are some of the biggest fucking idiots on the internet.
I see it all the time,
something slightly controversial happens
then immediately a ridiculous petition crops up
as if it's gonna do anything.
When you turn the idea of a petition
into a social media outlet where people
care more about how many comments and shares
they get instead of what the meat of the problem is,
then it becomes a farcical assembly of
some of the most moronic ideas imaginable.
When you casually visit the website and look at
some of the newly listed petitions,
you are guaranteed
to find at least one that makes your brain hurt a little.
Just look at this one here,
it's about forced adoptions which is obviously
something pretty serious.
Then look at the title:
'Bring my son home to he's loving family!'
Uh, are you serious?
Come on, if you want me to take it seriously
at least apply the most basic
form of grammar to the title.
But that's not even the worst part,
it's the comments from the people
who sign these things.
It's like I'm on a Comment Comeback,
it really is.
"I'm going through this myself feel it's
close my heart"
"everyone should have a chance in life
to do the right thing and forced adoption
is very wrong unless under
circumstances like pedos or ripest or murders"
None of this is fabricated.
I did not fake this.
This is a real comment on the page.
"Social took my daughter for no reason they pick the
vunrible and it not right"
Ok I don't really wanna be a grammar nazi here but
how can you even get it so wrong?
How is it even possible at this point?
Spellchecker is a thing!
"Remaster Modern Warfare 2 for next gen consoles"
Ok, this one has a lot of supporters,
a hell of a lot
but guess what.
They don't give a fuck.
Do people not understand how businesses work?
If this does end up happening,
it won't be because of a stupid petition,
it'll be because they know as a business
that they can make a fuck ton of money off it.
And this petition isn't even an example of
scraping the bottom of the barrel.
"More episodes of doofdaily on YouTube"
'Let's get Markiplier to be in
the Five Nights At Freddy's movie.'
"Don't let grown ups play Minecraft"
"Band legal highs"
(demonic voice) band
Then about every three minutes, a new petition is
filed to get Katie Hopkins banned.
Banned from existing apparently.
Look, I know she's a cunt
but you're kind of a supreme idiot if you
get offended by the shit she says.
She thrives off the negative attention
that has made her career
and every one of these stupid fucking petitions
is another win for her.
Ignore it and it might go away.
I know you might not be convinced that this website
is fully bad based on what I just showed you
but how about this for hypocrisy:
they claim that their goal is to empower people
and want a world where no one is powerless
but you can throw fat stacks of money at them
with sponsored campaigns.
To not take power away from anyone,
but crush the little guy by supporting the gap
they're tryna fight in the first place.
I don't really have much more to say than that.
I don't really think much more needs to be said.
Actually, you know what
There, my very own petition that is against the idea
of idiots petitioning on this website.
"You only have to browse around this website for a few
minutes to see how broken and stupid everything is.
Clearly people are too thick to understand
what this website should be used for.
For every petition that wants to ban Katie Hopkins
or band legal highs,
proves nothing but how the majority of
the general public are not mature enough
enough to manage something like a petition.
Please, help filter the stupidity by implementing
some kind of monitoring system.
I don't really give a flying fuck about this website,
I'm just sick of moronic petitions
making rounds across the internet.
So those are my thoughts on change.org.
Pretty specific idea but it's been
bothering me for a while now,
ever since the 'Don't make a PC version of GTA'
petition that was floating around.
So what do you think about change.org?
Do you think it does more good than bad?
Or do you think it's a stupid collection of stupid people
being stupid about stupid things that don't matter?
Tell me in the comments below.
