It’s Time to Speak Up for Salmon!
Kayla Brown, Hupa, stands with Chief Caleen Sisk, Winnemem Wintu, for Rivers and Water.
The Hupa People are in a crisis situation, with a potential repeat of the 2002 salmon kill on the Klamath and Trinity Rivers. Because the Bureau of Reclamation is refusing to let enough water out of the dams, the rivers are too low and too warm, and the salmon are beginning to show signs of disease.
omg can just I express how much I HATE these posts?
- Reblogging this post won’t change the fact that 17 teens commit suicide every day.
- Not reblogging doesn’t mean you’re heartless, it just means you know this post is meaningless and don’t want to bother with it.
- Guilt trip posts are the worst posts on Tumblr.
- It degenerates into an endless circlejerk of “I CARE!!!” and becomes more of a trend than anything else (this post has over 600,000 notes)
Posts like these are everywhere (reblog if you hate cancer, reblog if you aren’t homophobic, blah blah blah). They’re so stupid and pointless. Of course anyone who isn’t a sociopath cares!
I’m not trying to guilt the people who do reblog these, but for the love of all things good and holy, don’t try to shame people into reblogging a silly little post that won’t actually change anything (“REBLOG IF U HAVE A HEART,” “IF YOU DON’T REBLOG THIS THAN UNFOLLOW ME RIGHT NOW,” “ONLY A MONSTER WOULDN’T REBLOG THIS”).
This needs more notes
Tumblr is getting as bad as Facebook with this problem.
Holy shit yes, I have told off several people for the same reason, I usually never get a response back from these guilt trippers but don’t ever GUILT TRIP someone into reblogging your posts.
May I also add in the “If this post gets XXXX amount of notes…” posts that are so obviously fake and only made to gain attention? I’m sure your mom totally cares about how many notes you get. Shut the fuck up.
This is like chain letters but more obnoxious IMO. It uses guilt to make you do what it wants whereas chain letters generally threaten that bad things will happen to you if you break the chain yadda yadda.
