i just really wanted to submit this quote from John Green because it severely pissed me off

"If by that you mean that I dislike celebrity magazines, prefer food to anorexia, refuse to watch TV shows about models, and hate the colour pink, then yes….

Well, yes but it really depends on the context.

Voldemort is very clearly a VILLAIN in the context of the Harry Potter books. Anything he says is meant to be read as twisted and condemnable, because he was introduced to the reader as a MONSTER.

So my question is who said this? Protagonist? Antagonist? What? And in what way did John INTEND it to be read?

Cause I am still too lazy to look this up myself.

"If by that you mean that I dislike celebrity magazines, prefer food to anorexia, refuse to watch TV shows about models, and hate the colour pink, then yes. I am proud to be not really a girl."

Anonymous asked: "John Green on Emily Dickinson: "like a lot of her poetry, it suffers from this kind of failure to make up its mind in re. faith and fate and so on, which I generally see as kind of a weakness in her work, but in that particular poem it really works for me." Lol what kind of asshole has the audacity to call out a "weakness" in one of the greatest American voices in literature. Then he's like, "OH BUT GUYS I GUESS THIS POEM SUITS MY NEEDS." Narcissistic."

Hahaha, John thinks ambiguity is a WEAKNESS? Well that explains a lot about his writing style.

Anonymous asked: "You know I've been grossed out by Hank since the video he made on the national coming out day in which he "came out" as a fan of Japanese pop music. The description: "In which Hank comes out of a (not the) closet...""

God. Hank and LGBT issues.

Strike One

Strike Two [explained in more depth here]

And I guess we can consider this Strike Three.

But back to Strike Two. Every time Hank insists “Stereotypes are bad!” and “I’m actually straight!” all I hear is “I didn’t deserve to be (or maybe FEEL) gay-bashed in middle school because I wasn’t gay.”

And it’s like, actually NO ONE deserves to be treated like that, Hank. REGARDLESS of their sexuality. So the INCESSANT PROCLAMATIONS OF YOUR HETEROSEXUALITY ARE ACTUALLY SUPER IRRELEVANT IN THIS CONTEXT. JUST FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.

And also *sighhhhhh*… Okay Hank. I understand that you were deeply horrified by the prospect of MAYBE experiencing some oppression for like two minutes in your life. But shouting “I had a gay panic in middle school!” at people for whom oppression is a DAILY REALITY is not gonna get you much sympathy.

And P.S. you know who else was questioning their sexuality in middle school? EVERYONE. EVERYONE ON THE FUCKING PLANET.


deathspickles asked: "help me out with something... the word Pretentious is used as an insult all the time but I think we're supposed to strive to be a little smarter and a little better than we actually are. We try to say clever poetic things and sometimes sound a little dumb but I think thats realistic. no?"

So John sounds… realistically… dumb?

I think I think you’re missing something in your definition of the word “pretentious”. Pretentiousness isn’t a genuine attempt to be better, it’s an affectation, a display of arrogance and/or grandiosity to seem better, to impress. Pretense is the root of the word.
