I've been thinking about how Tumblr has helped me develop more views and opinions on issues around the world. I have become more interested in politics and womens rights. It's helped me find out the racism that still occurs and the problems that people with different sexualities face. I read more articles and understand more. It has helped me discover more bands and music. Tumblr is basically just fucking awesome.
Take Donald Trump for example. Despite the numerous Orange is the new black GIFs, there is a huge amount of information about him (With sources!). Tumblr takes main issues that affect everyone and explains them to teenagers in a way we can understand. Followed by numerous jokes to keep the mood up. It's a great way of educating young people in ways which schools fail.
