I'm Jacob. 21. Tattoos. Colorado. Bi Polar. Addict. Eight months sober and counting. I'm just trying to figure it all out.

"And now Klaus is apparently running off to go and save Sunny. In the books of course it is Violet, but I know that Hollywood prefers its female actresses to do very little."

Well, here’s the deal, anon. The Salvation Army is an evangelical Christian group, and they impose those beliefs on the people that they employ and the communities they serve. Here are a few examples:
They are so opposed to LGBT rights that they have lobbied multiple times for exemptions from Federal and Local anti-discrimination laws, and threatened to withdraw their services. 
They refused to provide shelter to a homeless gay couple, unless they broke up and renounced their homosexuality. 
They refused to provide a transgender woman with shelter that was congruent with her gender presentation, instead insisting she house with men. She chose instead to sleep on the sidewalk and died from the cold.  
Speaking of gender, there was also this charming incident where one of their hostels refused to open the door for a 17-year-old victim who had just been brutally raped (or even call the police for her) because that particular hostel had a strict “men only” policy.
Children who can’t prove their immigration status are turned away.
The organization also disposes of any Harry Potter or Twilight related donations (rather than giving them to other charities), because they claim the toys are “incompatible with the charity’s Christian beliefs”. 
During the Bush Administration (thanks to ‘faith-based initiatives’) they fired about 20 long-time employees (Jewish, Muslim, Hindu and Gay), simply for refusing to sign the organization’s statement of Christian belief.  
So, that—in a nutshell—is what’s wrong with it.


i will never stop spreading the word about how fucking shady the salvation army is
think twice before you donate to the bell-ringers in your local mall this holiday season … i am planning on starting a dialogue with the ones that are set to station themselves outside the store i work in

also one time i volunteered with the salvation army around christmas time being an “elf” and helping parents pick out free donated toys for their kids
which was all well and good until they ESCORTED TWO MEN OUT OF THE BUILDING BECAUSE THEY “LOOKED GAY”
this was a first-hand eyewitness account and i should have left then and there, but seeing as i needed to take the bus back to school…

And this is why I starting to donate to other charities around Christmas.
No more red buckets for me.

and theres also how in Australia they have teared apart native aboriginal communities to “christianize” them and make them part of capitalist western society, up until the late 60’s they assisted with the taking of aboriginal children from their families in the stolen generation and put the children into missions where they would follow strict pattern of work and christian education
heres a buttload more reasons too including sources for what i just said

reblogging again because of that whole “but salvation army is changed!!11!!” post circulating because people need to be reminded of the terrible shit they’ve done

Sooooo….the top left.
You’ve got to be SHITTING me.
Let me get this straight: somebody can say tons of racist and homophobic shit and still get crowned one of the most “Influential” teens of 2014 by Time Magazine?
Is that a message we’re trying to send out to America’s youth? “You can be a huge cunt and offend a lot of people, but who cares?! Here’s a prize for your douchebaggery!”
Regardless of how many followers he has on Vine, I don’t think a bigot deserves this title. 

Want to know why he’s on the list?
Because each day he has to put up with people like you that constantly bring him down. Can you believe that? He’s a 16 year old who has made one mistake and he has millions like you telling him to die and calling him crash, his response? He tries not to let it get to him, even though he’s had a history of depression. You people literally drove him to delete his tumblr.
THE SAME PEOPLE that are so against bullying and critize a person for making mistakes in their past. You may ask why I said one mistake and not two? Sure it was offensive when he yelled fag in a video following an AIDS commercial, but guess what he has apologized so many times and he had put down the video. He’s tried so hard to prove he is genuinely sorry. Then he made a video in which he stated HIS PREFERENCE.
I find it so fucking insane that people are literally telling him to die and calling him a sexist for saying that HE doesn’t like body hair on women. NEWSFLASH HUNNY MILLIONS OF MEN AND WOMEN AGREE WITH HIM, SO SORRY TO BURST YOUR BUBBLE FULL OR IGNORANCE BUT ITS TRUE. I don’t like guys with fucking mustaches, so what? Are you going to push me to delete my tumblr and constantly make threats?

YASSSSSSS REBLOGGING FOR THE LAST COMMENT

Okay, I can understand if you like him and want to defend him but one mistake? Let’s go down the list, shall we? 
(In No Particular Order)
1. What Guys Look For In Girls: A video, which, by the title, would imply all guys are like this. This video wouldn’t have been so upsetting if it wasn’t someone with this much power. This guy has millions of people, mostly young, teenage girls, who watch his videos and now feel bad about themselves. I could go into more detail, but literally everything I could say is in this video by TheThirdPew who is only a year older than Nash. I suggest you watch it.

2. Use of homophobic and racist statements on twitter: This is a biggie. A lot of these tweets have since been deleted but he still made them. I don’t really think this one needs an explanation. Not to mention the horrible grammar in some of them, but hey I’m not Jack Douglass. 




3. The HIV Vine: If you don’t know about this, this is a vine he made from an advertisement raising awareness for HIV Testing, where it’s stated ‘it’s not a gay thing!’ and cuts into a clip of him saying, ‘yes it is, f*g!’ Which again, shouldn’t need an explanation. The vine has been taken down, but I think you can still find it reposted on a bunch of places, such as Tyler Oakley’s twitter. 

I could go on, but these are the three biggest things that come to mind. Now, I’m not saying he’s a bad person. You know, I think there’s good in everybody (10 points if you got that reference). It’s just the fact that he has all of this power, and he’s using it to spread hate. 
'But he's only 16 and has a lot of pressure on him!' 
Are you freaking kidding me?
No doubt about it, he has pressure on him, but let’s look at another person on the list: Malala.
She literally got shot in the head for trying to go to school. There’s a lot of people who want her dead in the world, and unlike the 'millions like you telling him to die and calling him crash' (A direct quote from the above statement). These people actually have the ability to kill her. And she knows that. But she’s spreading her message, and that message doesn’t have to do with freaking shaving your legs.
I’m not trying to compare him to Malala in any way. She’s an activist and he’s a viner. But he has so much potential to be doing something good, I mean, and it’s not like it’s impossible. Other YouTubers and viners have done plenty of things…off the top of my head: 
1. Tyler Oakley has raised over $500,000 for The Trevor Project for suicidal teenagers. (Donate here: x) 
2. Connor Franta has raised over $230,000 for The Thirst Project. The money will be used to build wells in Africa. 
And in non monetary ways, many YouTubers have made videos about body positivity, mental disorders, and other heavy issues in an effort to make people feel better about themselves (ie. Shane Dawson’s videos about eating disorders, suicide, etc., Emma Blackery’s music video about how you matter, all those O2L videos saying how pretty and great you are, etc etc…) 
As for ‘oh but he apologized.’ 
Don’t even.
What he did was hardly an apology. He literally wrote tweets slightly over the character limit, saying (a direct quote from one of the tweets) 'I was young and stupid' 
Okay, first of all, that’s something you say 20 years after something happens and you actually have time to reflect on how bad the thing was, not less than 6 months later. 
Secondly, if he really cared he would have addressed it more directly.
if he really cared he would have addressed it more directly.
if he really cared he would have addressed it more directly.
if he really cared he would have addressed it more directly.
I don’t know how many times I can say it. If you are genuinely sorry about something, you’re not going to make a little tiny tweet about it, post it long enough for someone to screenshot it, and then delete it. 
Example? Shane Dawson. Notorious for offensive videos, arguably worst of all: Black Facing. 

What Shane did was completely wrong. But, the way he addressed the issue was very mature of him and much more than a little tweet. You can watch his apology video here: x. This is how an apology is meant to be. He doesn’t try to justify what he did in any way. He acknowledges that he was ignorant and deleted every single video that included that type of offensive material. He even tried removing ads on that video so people would realize he wasn’t trying to make a quick buck off of it.

So, in short: STOP TRYING TO TURN THIS FREAKING LITTLE SHIT INTO A MARTYR. HE IS NOT A MARTYR. 
HE IS A TEENAGE BOY WHO NEEDS TO TAKE A STEP BACK, REALIZE HOW POPULAR HE IS, STEP BACK, AND BE A BETTER PERSON.
HE LITERALLY IS ONE OF THE 25 MOST INFLUENTIAL TEENS HE REALLY NEEDS TO REALIZE HOW FREAKING POPULAR HE IS GOODNESS GRACIANYAS. 

Don’t forget his racist jokes about black girls on vine!!!

Finally somebody sad it!!
