Friend: What are you doing?
Me: I'm on tumblr.
Him: What is tumblr?
Me: It's like the entirety of the internet in one convenient place. Pictures, quotes, posts, chats, videos, gifs, everything. Its mostly composed of fandom, cats, minority rights, and politics.
Him: What is fandom?
Me: ........ ... Woooowwww.... *explains fandom*
Him: Oh. Okay. So what kind of minority rights are you concerned with?
Me: Racism, sexism, LGBTQ rights, etc.
Him: What specifically do you feel is wrong with the world in those areas?
Me: Do you seriously want me to explain this? So many things. Him: Give me an example.
Me: *scrolls through dashboard* How about this? A minority woman being arrested without legitimate reason.
Him: You haven't even had a chance to read the article. There could be a reason.
Me: I'm reading it right now. Are you? *continues scrolling through dashboard* Oh hey! A great quote from Carl Sagan! See, tumblr has all sorts of cool stuff.
Him: Who's Carl Sagan?
Me: .......... ..... Oh my god.
Him: No one knows who he is.
Me (adressing nearby peers): Do any of you know who Carl Sagan is?
Them: No. / Never heard of him. / Is he a basketball player?
Me: *drags friends over to counselors, and adresses them* Can someone please tell him who Carl Sagan is?
Counselor #1: No idea.
Counselor #2: Isn't he a ... Umm... Astronomer?
