Before John Green, his general category of realistic (non-fantasy) YA was rife with teen angst and “issues” fiction that you might have associated with the legendary Judy Blume, or with newer writers like Sarah Dessen or Laurie Halse Anderson. Anderson’s classic 1999 novel Speak, about a high schooler struggling to deal with the aftermath of sexual assault, was so influential that three years later Penguin launched an entire imprint named after it. One of the books launched under the behest of Speak was Green’s Looking for Alaska. But it’s Green whose name you’re more likely to know today, not Anderson’s, although Anderson has won more awards and written more books.



On Twitter, Green has 2 million followers. Compared to the rest of the leaders in Young Adult fiction, that number is staggering. To approach even half the Twitter influence of John Green all by himself, you need an entire army of YA women. Anderson, Blume, Dessen, Veronica Roth, Cassandra Clare, Richelle Mead, Margaret Stohl, Kami Garcia, Rainbow Rowell, Maureen Johnson, Malinda Lo, Holly Black, LJ Smith, Ellen Hopkins, Shannon Hale, Lauren Myracle, Libba Bray, Melissa Marr, and Leigh Bardugo: As a group these women only have about 1.2 million followers on Twitter.

That’s the voice of one man outweighing several decades of women who have had major successes, critical acclaim, and cultural influence.

When a man succeeds in a devalued (because of its association with women) field, he legitimizes it in popular opinion.

there are three levels to tumblr friendships:

1. super nice messages

2. slightly weird messages

3. messages with the entirety of bohemian rhapsody lyrics and messages at 4am saying things like “what if you woke up and u were a chicken”

The guy on the left, since he shows clear disgust with having his picture taken suddenly without permission. The guy on the right has had so little sleep that his grip on reality and emotions has left him

This is how you handle getting your privileged called out. 

Not “reverse racism!” Not “heterophobe!” and all those other dynamics that don’t exist. Just recognition. Recognition of privilege (and hopefully continuous self-checking)

Are you a space antichrist? Yeah, I thought so. Now you can get a t-shirt that says so. Heck yeah.

By “AntiChrist” do you mean anti christian? or just against Jesus? If the ladder, then that is actually kind of stupid because Jesus was the one who put judgmental people in their place and said to love everyone. He also saved a prostitute from a public stoning by calling people out saying anyone who hadn’t committed any sin in their lives could throw the first stone. He wasn’t going to, and since people saw the logic to his words, they left the poor girl alone. Co don’t be “AntiChrist” be anti bigot. Call people out on their shit! No one is perfect, and I am pretty sure God doesn’t like being represented by all these bigots who are hating the people he loves. Jesus also said that our definition of hating someone was equivalent to killing them in God’s eyes. So anyone who hates you is actively committing murder in the eyes of God. Remind them of that.

I think you’re taking this a little too seriously, it was meant to be funny because bigots think that we’re the antichrist
