I LOVE this. Like, look at Kara following Mon-el. My girl just came back from a Sleeping Beauty type slumber where she was practically dead, and her first instinct is to follow the lips. You love your enormous heart out, Kara.
If you see an alarming post, please make sure it is true before you reblog.
Check sources. Are there any external reputable sources? Has the OP deleted their post since publishing it? Are there asks on the OP’s tumblr providing truth against their post? Have they provided further info?
Google it. Confirm that it exists outside of tumblr, and on reputable sources. Check snopes.
Check the notes. Chances are, if it’s fake or misleading people have already commented or reblogged with facts proving so or providing more context. Clicking and scrolling through the notes for a bit is one of the easiest things you can do before reblogging.

Three days after Lyle Menendez had threatened to disclose years of sexual abuse by his father. They say Jose Menendez sexually molested his older son from the ages of 6 to 8 and his younger son from the ages of 6 to 18.The brothers are claiming self-defense in the same manner that battered wives have successfully argued that killings of abusive husbands are justified even at a moment when they are not under physical attack.
