There’s a popular online trend of taking perfectly innocent images from children’s coloring books and altering them, often with impressive artistic prowess, into deeply disturbing depictions of violence, perversion, and any number of decidedly adult themes.

There are times as an activist that demand careful preparation, clearly sourced and cited facts, and a composed, balanced delivery.
