Hi, this is a multi-fandom blog, so there'll be a lot of SuperWhoLock, Percy Jackson, AtLA/LoK, several animes, a generous layering of anything that makes me smile, and random social activism.
Welcome! Sorry for the mess.

you are a pretentious prick who is also a transphobic piece of trash, go to hell

There is so much of this stuff in my ask box, and most of it not even anonymous, but I don’t want to call out any particular user because I know they’ll then get a lot of hateful asks and the cycle will just continue.

First off, there’s a comma splice in your ask. I just have to let you know that, on account of how I’m a pretentious prick.

I hope that I’m not transphobic. I’ve been public and vocal in my support for the rights of trans people for years, and I’ve tried over the years to amplify trans voices, from T Cooper to Stephen Ira Beatty, rather than pretending to be able to speak for them. 

Look, I am a person, and I am not a particularly good one. I am screwed up and make a lot of mistakes. But I am not a piece of trash. I would imagine that you are also screwed up and make a lot of mistakes, but you aren’t a piece of trash either.

But it is still hurtful—very hurtful—to hear people call me a piece of trash. It just makes me sad to hear, the way I think it would make most people sad to hear. The certainty and lack of nuance in that characterization reflects a broader lack of nuance in online discourse these days that just bums me out. 

I find it kinda problematic that John would respond to this. A 36(?) year old man responds to anon hate. And talk about her hurtful it was. Maybe it wasn’t the intention but it comes across childish and well, pretentious. What 36 year old says they’re “screwed up” I mean something about that just seems wrong to me, but I guess he is if he’s pushing 40 and responds to this crap. I’m all for valid criticism of him and would hope he’d respond to it maturely, but this is just “ur a piece of trash” and a self righteous pretentious rant on it. He’s proving the anon right. 

I’m not entirely sure we read the same thing? I don’t intend to sound rude, but I do not see how you reached your conclusion.

Normally when someone responds to anon hate they respond with an equal amount of animosity; they are shameful, they are rude, they are angry. In this case, though, John Green responded maturely, treating the anon not as an inferior bug like most people would but as an equal. He dealt with this wonderfully. As he said, he has many of these in his ask box. Perhaps he had been ignoring them, but when they kept coming he decided to do something about it like any human being would do, regardless of their age. Further, he chose to respond to anon rather than an actual person because he knows that there are people on this site who would love to tear someone’s throat out. It happens all the time where people are forced off this site because, let’s face it, we’re not the wonderful, welcoming community we would like to pretend we are.

This is not problematic. This is a human being (I repeat, a human) responding to an ask with maturity and intelligence. What is problematic is the ask; an anon insulting someone without any evidence or support and then telling them to “go to hell”. It’s almost as bad as telling someone to kill them self. John Green is not a perfect person, as he said. No one is perfect. But he handled this wonderfully and with grace and I can only hope that more people learn to communicate like this in the future rather than resorting to anon hate, insults, and petty squabbles.

Why would a middle aged man respond to anon hate? He’s behaving like a teenager. Look, your blog has the them of TFIOS, so I don’t see the point of entertaining this. John Green has done problematic things and him responding to shit like this just makes me uneasy. He’s done shitty things and instead of addressing them he’s said “I’m not x, I support those people” rather than listening to the offended. I don’t know there’s not much point in discussing this with someone who enjoys a book about two kids with cancer where things are so contrived just for a shitty romance with no regard for people who actually suffer this shit. It pisses me off. It’s done for the sake of romance, not the narrative or anything else. 

I don’t generally take the high road, so I’m going to reply to this and then stop because just by reading your comment I have realized that you aren’t seeking an intelligent, thoughtful, and mature debate. You have already reached your conclusions about everybody involved in this and have found them all wanting. It’s sad but I don’t see me changing that.

I have the TFIOS theme, it’s true. I’m a book nerd; I enjoy reading and I found TFIOS to be a very good read. I know and have lost people to cancer; it is never fun and it is not glorious. I think that is part of the reason why I enjoyed his book; it didn’t try to glorify the pain or the horror of it while still maintaining it’s status as a young adult novel.

As for the anon hate, hate is never okay and I don’t know why you are defending this particular one. If the anon actually had something legitimate to say they would have done so calmly and with maturity rather than with hate, insults, and atrocious grammar. Now I do not know what the original context was and why the anon thought that hate was the best way to go to express their anger, but this was not someone with a legitimate complaint. That was my point when I chose to reply to your comment. John Green may have done something (again, I do not know) but in this particular case, with this particular anon, he did nothing wrong, which made your comment look ridiculous.

Again, this is all I’m going to say, regardless of your reply, because I don’t want to turn this into a long, drawn out thing. I just wanted to clarify a few things that you seemed to misunderstand. I’m not saying that John Green has never made a mistake (I would never say that about anyone), but in this case he was in the right.

Have you ever been to earth?
On earth, we use the word “burrito” to describe a tortilla filled with things you eat. Pretty simple stuff, and I’m surprised you at least got that part right. My burrito was, in fact, filled with food. In this, you and I agree and are friends. But this is also where my lifelong hatred begins for you and anyone else whose brain has been repeatedly scrubbed with the same mixture of bleach and Pop Rocks as yours has. Because that should have killed you, but left you around long enough to do what you did to me today. Let me explain:
You’re an idiot.
Let me further explain:
Burritos are eaten from one end to the other. So that means when you assemble a burrito with motherfucking ZONES of ingredients going that direction, you create a disgusting experience for the burrito’s end user. When you make a burrito, you should put the ingredients in layerslengthwise. That way, every bite has AT LEAST A FUCKING CHANCE of getting at least two types of ingredients, and there is little chance of becoming almost hopelessly trapped in a goddamned cilantro cavern.
Have you ever eaten one of the things you make all fucking day? You should try one. They are pretty good WHEN YOU ARE NOT WILLING YOURSELF THROUGH THE FUCKING EMPIRE OF SOUR CREAM ONLY TO END UP IN LETTUCE COUNTRY.
When you eat a burrito, you don’t stand it up and bite down on it lengthwise like a fucking Rancor. Humans can’t usually dislocate their jaws, and I’m not a fucking pelican. But you must think that’s how it’s done, since that would be THE ONLY FUCKING WAY to take a bite of your crapstrosity and have it taste like a burrito.
And guess what else, player? You probably can’t guess anything, because I’m pretty sure you’re just a mop with a hat on it that fell over and spilled some shit into a tortilla, but just in case, here’s what:
Humans also don’t eat burritos like fucking corn on the cob. Like a fucking typewriter from one end to the other a little at a time and then DING next line. But today I wish I had tried that. Because at least THEN I would be able to eat some rice, then beans, then be all like HEY BEANS I’LL BE RIGHT BACK JUST GOING OVER HERE TO THE GUACAMOLE FOR A SECOND.
Nope.
My experience was more like HEY BEANS IT’S JUST GOING TO BE YOU AND I FOR A MINUTE UNTIL I CAN FUCKING EXCAVATE THE RICE FROM BENEATH YOU BUT BY THEN YOU WILL BE A FADING MEMORY OH HEY I WAS WRONG I’M IN THE FUCKING CHEESEOSPHERE NOW RICE MUST BE NEXT I HOPE IT’S NOT ANOTHER FUCKING SALSA POCKET.
You built this thing like a fucking pack of LifeSavers.
And don’t even fucking think I’m about to open this shit up and re-engineer your nonsense 90 degrees. I ALREADY PUT A HOLE IN IT WITH MY FUCKING MOUTH. YEAH. THAT’S HOW I DISCOVERED YOU FUCKING SUCK AT LOOKING AT THINGS. I AM NOT GOING TO DO FUCKING TORTILLA ORIGAMI TO GET THIS SHIT BACK TOGETHER, ONLY TO END UP WITH A BURRITO THAT’S BEEN SHOT IN THE GUT AND IS BLEEDING YOUR INEPTITUDE.
What’s that? I should ask you to mix it up first next time? IS THIS JAMBA JUICE? I DON’T WANT TO DRINK MY FUCKING BURRITO THROUGH A BENDY STRAW, AND I DON’T WANT A PILE OF BURRITO SOUP IN A FLOUR CAN.
I just want a burrito.
In conclusion:
You’re the worst thing that has ever happened to the universe, you owe everyone everywhere an apology for this burritobomination, and I hope your babies look like monkeys.



UPDATE FOR EVERYONE WHO SAID “JUST EAT IT WITH A FORK”:
A fucking fork?
I DIDN’T ORDER THE FUCKING COBBURRITO SALAD.
If anyone ever handed me a burrito with a fork, THEY WOULD BE WEARING A BRAND NEW BURRITO HAT FROM MY FALL COLLECTION TEN SECONDS LATER.
That’s like buying a car and having them hand you a fucking wrench with the keys. Like YEAH WE KNOW THIS MOTHERFUCKER’S GOING TO EXPLODE AND BE SPREAD ACROSS EIGHT LANES AS SOON AS YOU HIT THE GAS, BUT SHIT, WE GAVE YOU A WRENCH, SO BE COOL.
Jesus already gave me two burrito forks. One at the end of each arm. They’re called fucking HANDS.
A fork. My god. I haven’t cried since I was six, but I’m fucking sobbing now.
People eat burritos with forks?
God is sorry he made us.

I've been seeing a lot of people talk about Gus sounding really pretentious in the movie, do you think he sounds pretentious?


fishingboatproceeds:

I mean, that scene is word-for-word from the book, so don’t blame the movie! :) Yes, Gus is super pretentious at the start of the story. it’s a character flaw.

Gus wants to have a big and important and remembered life, and so he acts like he imagines people who have such lives act. So he’s, like, says-soliloquy-when-he-means-monologue pretentious, which is the most pretentious variety of pretension in all the world.

And then his performative, over-the-top, hyper-self-aware pretentiousness must fall away for him to really connect to Hazel, just as her fear of being a grenade must fall away. That’s what the novel is about. That is its plot.

Gus must make the opposite of the traditional heroic journey—he must start out strong and end up weak in order to reimagine what constitutes a rich and well-lived life.

Basically, a 20-second clip from the first five minutes of a movie is not the movie.

(Standard acknowledgement here that I might be wrong, that I am inevitably defensive of TFIOS, that it has many flaws, that there’s nothing wrong with critical discussion, and that a strong case could be made that I should not insert myself into these conversations at all.)

People criticizing TFIOS because Gus sounds pretentious???

that was the point???

like literally at his fake funeral his best friend talks about how fucking pretentious he is and how annoying it was???

It was one of his character flaws? He was deliberately written that way?

You’re not being clever or critical by pointing it out, you are literally stating a fact about the novel that the author deliberately wrote
