John Green, you are fucking garbage. I can’t believe you allow children to look up to you. I can’t believe I looked up to you. You are disgusting and you fucking know full well that impressionable kids, especially girls, will defend this and believe you and internalize misogyny because you act like it’s something that can be ignored.
You must be really fucking proud of yourself. I fear for the future of your child, and what you will teach them. I fucking pray you never have a daughter because teaching her something like this is so fucking dangerous I can’t even wrap my mind around why you would ever think THIS KIND OF THINKING IS BENEFICIAL TO ANYONE BUT YOURSELF. I hope your wife raises your child properly cause you certainly fucking won’t.
I am so fucking ashamed that I ever thought you were respectable or cool or inspiring. I don’t know what I was thinking. I’m so fucking disgusted with myself for believing you were a good person. How fucking dare you.
This kind of makes me mad because it is taken completely out of context. This tweet is part of a series of tweets in which he is referring to the Twilight saga and how woman writers are treated much more harshly then male authors. He is talking about how critiques over look the problematic aspects in male written novels but narrow in and attack female writers for the same things. He addresses this in his tumblr blog.
Having followed his videos and blogs for many years I feel fairly comfortable saying attacking him for being a misogynistic asshole is kind of absurd. He advocates against many misogynistic cliches in writing (one books is completely dedicated to pointing out how ridiculous the manic pixie girl cliche is). One of the standing principles he does advocate within his fan base is imagining everyone complexly. To try to view everyone not as a singular action, stereotype, or what the media builds as an idealized demon or saint. He is constantly reminding his audience to imagine every person as a full person. It really bothers me to see people reacting so harshly toward someone due to 140 or less characters of text pulled completely out of context.
I can almost guarantee that everyone has said or posted a random sentence, or tweet, or facebook status that when taken completely out of context would seem problematic. But all it would take would be going to that persons twitter to find out that 140 characters don’t represent the entire story of someone’s beliefs or values.
So this has pretty much nothing to do with art but I am really excited about it so I’m sharing. To start this story I’m going to give a quick background. I have been working out on and off again for the past couple of months and decided with my handy dandy, spiffy, new calender and day planner I was going to make sure to keep better track of myself and maintain a routine. And today I was suppose to run a mile in the morning but due to a slew of unexpected events I wasn’t able to get it done until a few minutes ago. I originally wasn’t going to do it because I had just gotten home from a double at work, but I said “No, I gotta do the thing!” and I ended up running the fastest mile I have ran in 5 years. So I am a happy camper.
There is more done at this point but I think the minimalistic look so far is pretty nifty. I really like it anyway. Haha
There is so much work left to be done for this that it makes me all anxious and uncomfortable seeing it on my desktop every day. I really need to finish this at some point. D:
My half of a Christmas trade with my friend Damien. It was a pain in the to get things working the way I wanted them too. And it’s not quite as finished as I would have liked but time was running short and I was getting tired of looking at the same drawing for so long. Hahaha I am still very happy with it though.
This is your Christmas present. I got too excited and couldn’t wait for Christmas. It’s a little Aedo trying to figure out how the lamps work because child curiosity, I guess. Hahaha
I couldn’t get the image of a child Aedo with a ridiculous cow lick out of my mind because I thought it was stinking adorable and hir hair is so fluffy so enjoy the cow lick of doom. haha
I just finished the line art to a character and I am so proud of it right now that I want to wave it around for everyone to see. Problem is, it is a gift and I can’t post it until it is done/Christmas. (depends on how long my resolve lasts. Hahaha It’s really good though. Just take my word on it.
