When I become this I am stopping violence against children?
According to Facebook, it’s the answer. Maybe if we’re all drooling in front of a computer screen, the ratio of violence decreases but I have my doubts.
I’m Batman because I’ve always wanted to be Batman. Never more than when the Dark Knight cartoons came out–they were so cool and Batman battled the forces of evil (violence against children is evil) by beating the crap out of evil. Don’t ponder the irony, just go with it.
It’s fun to see what people chose it be and it’s very interesting to see what the collective community grabs onto. About a year ago it was women posting the color of their undergarments to fight breast cancer–“White” “Pink” “Leopard Print” filled the screen with occasional “What?” from those who didn’t know what was going on. I have no idea how many lives were saved by posting bra color on Facebook but hope the elevating the level of awareness elevates the purpose.
I wax and wane with my FB activity. These days I’m more of a lurker but I think it’s fascinating how certain sparks of creativity incite a large herd response.
