Aries: They tend to come off as 'masculine'. Assertive. Short tempered. Thinks they're everyone's boss.
Taurus: They are like still waters. Calm and steady. They don't really want to share their food with you, don't even try it.
Gemini: Quick witted. Natural storytellers. If they smile a lot, they probably hate you.
Cancer: Caring. Always worrying about you despite themselves. Probably should be on drugs.
Leo: Natural hosts. Treats everyone like they're best friends. Only do it because they know a king is nothing without their people.
Virgo: Analytical. Tend to be intellectually conceited. They'll offer to help you and then complain about it. If you do something about it, they'll complain even more.
Libra: Charm overload. Peacekeepers. Always on everyone's side. Gossip masters. Would self destruct rather than make a decision.
Scorpio: Quiet power. Hard to figure out. Fucks up shit for fun. They laugh at your distress and your inability to figure out they did it.
Sagittarius: The life of the party. Blunt honesty. Talks shit then forgets about it 0.5 seconds later. Not suitable for fragile egos. They have a fragile ego.
Capricorn: Stern. Probably your math teacher. Type of humor that you are always left wondering if you were the joke. Works harder than you could ever.
Aquarius: Weird and contradicting. Believes in conspiracy theories. Probably gets turned off if more than one person likes the same thing they do.
Pisces: Imaginative. Altruistic. Martyr complex. Spends 90% of the time daydreaming. Probably on drugs or at least look like it. Hobo chic. Probably crying right now.
So proud of my mother for doing her own research after I sent her that meme. A sign she hung in her car window.
Is this true?
Not only is it true, it gets worse. The Susan G Komen For The Cure Foundation has actually successfully sued “competing” charities, because (paraphrasing) their “message or branding was infringing.”
You read that correctly: they took money that people had donated to cure cancer, and hired attorneys with it, to sue ANOTHER group of people trying to find a cure for cancer, who, in turn, had to us their donated money to hire their own legal counsel to defend themselves.
Yeah signal boost because not enough people know about this and seriously FUCK SUSAN G. KOMEN THEY ARE THE ACTUAL WORST

This is one of those things I read about a while ago but have always been afraid to talk about because unlike PETA, Autism Speaks, HRC, etc…this isn’t as well-known. But here you have it, some measure of proof.
The best-known group associated with any particular cause did not necessarily get to that position by being the best, or the only. Never take things like this for granted.
The saddest thing is, though, these things keep chugging on pretty much unstoppably. They make big deals with other things, hold big events, and just get so cemented in people’s minds. No one will be able to shout “Wait, no, they suck!” loud enough or fast enough, and I think the average person clings to a veneer of “They’re just trying to help!/But look at all the awareness they raised!” far too easily. Thinking about this futility sucks. So spread this…I mean, no pressure, but seriously consider it.
