coyotelips:

it is important to stop teenagers and would-be teenagers from romanticizing things like depression and anxiety but also like

if you don’t have experience with such things

please shut up

I understand that you want to help, I get it, I do

but shut up

don’t talk about how horrible and serious and heartbreaking it is if you have not lived through it

leave that for the people who actually know what they are talking about

the best thing you can do is just not contribute to the problem

thank you

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.

"Young Adult Publishing and the John Green Effect" (via delicatedad)

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

(via survivorsuperhero)

But … the thing is that, ya know, he’s one half of one of the most popular channels on YouTube. He’s one of the Vlog Brothers. He gets A LOT of followers from YouTube. … Just saying.

Girl look at that body,

Girl look at that body,

We should probably call the police who knows how long it’s been in the river.
