This is currently my life
littlemorningbirds asked: I've seen your comments on twitter and Facebook and feel like I am more anonymous on those sites than here. Sir, Twilight is made fun of because it glorifies very bad things. It takes horrible things like stalking, self harm and suicide, abusive tendencies, wanting to murder someone, and a loss of self identity in place of your significant other's identity and makes them seem beautiful and romantic. I beg you to read the books, because there is a lot of very bad stuff in them.
I hope I can be clear about this, but my thoughts all day have been a bit muddled, so I apologize if I express myself poorly or come off as defensive or anything.
1. There are deeply problematic relationship dynamics glorified in Twilight.
2. Criticizing misogyny in art is good and important.
3. My concern is that popular work by women receives far more vitriolic criticism from the public (like, in terms of number of demeaning jokes made by Jay Leno*) than popular work created by men.
4. So I think we’re talking about two different kinds of criticism: The totally legitimate criticism we see in literary journals and feminist web sites about misogyny, and the demeaning and dismissive this-sucks-because-teen-girls-like-it-and-everyone-knows-that-teen-girls-are-not-fully-human criticism we see in popular culture.
5. Also, I would like to see equal attention given to the sexism in popular work by men, from Nicholas Sparks to for instance J. D. Salinger. Catcher in the Rye—although I like it very much—is profoundly and disturbingly misogynistic and yet seems to get a critical pass both online and off. This happens a lot, I think, with books by men, and I don’t want male writers (including me!) to get that pass.
6. I might be wrong about any/all of this. I’m wrong a lot, and always trying to learn.
*EDIT: Apparently Jay Leno has retired. You learn something new every day.
Funny this is coming from John Green who is constantly being shit on because people simplify characters like Margo and Alaska as pixie maniac dream girls (when I think at least it’s deeper than John being a sexist and creating women for the advancement of men)
LIKE WHY ARE PERIODS NECESSARY
WHY DO I HAVE TO HAVE CRAMPS SO PAINFUL I PRACTICALLY THROW UP
WHY DO I HAVE TO RUIN MY FAVOURITE PAJAMA PANTS
WHY DO I HAVE TO BECOME AN EMOTIONAL WRECK EVERY TIME A PIN DROPS
WHY DO I HAVE TO SHOVE A SPONGEY STICK UP MY GOD DAMN VAGINA ONCE A MONTH
I DON’T EVEN LIKE KIDS
I started reading this thinking it was a critique of the punctuation period. Which makes sense cause none of the sentences have periods on them =p
I remember reading this a while back, I’m glad it’s made it’s way to my dash again
I WILL NEVER NOT REBLOG THIS EVER BECAUSE IT IS THE ABSOLUTE MOST ADORABLE FUCKING THING EVER!!! /)^3^(\

Nope nope nope I’m not about to cry over PLUTO OMG SO ADORABLE

To all the people I found on Tumblr randomly or on Omegle and followed on Tumblr know you guys are awesome :)
Aww this is cute. My next pickup line will totally be “Hey babe can you bring me your charms of music & female chit-chat which are good for one’s health?”
dont be mean to couples on valentines day like i know it can be a little disheartening but like if a couple is havin a special day together dont make fun of them or act like theyre gross thats just a dick move
BUT GIRLS ARE GROSS AND HAVE COOTIES WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT TO YOURSELF???
Books that people read romantically but shouldn’t because they’re missing the point:
- Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
- Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare
- The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
That’s your opinion.
there’s nothing romantic about a pedophile rapist, the senseless murder-suicide of teenagers because families can’t get their shit together or the hypocrisy of the roaring 20s
Add to this Looking for Alaska. /That/ was not a healthy relationship…
