One of the things he’s said in the past that was uncomfortable was using the t-slur in an argument of how it’s a terrible slur… but still without censoring himself as a cis person, and not like..GETTING WHY THATS NOT GOOD. I think he’d apologized for it since but it still happened and was bad
Stuff like that should always be called out and you shouldnt have to cater to someone just because their intentions are good……thats not how you improve things. So the people who idealize him to the umpteenth degree aren’t doing ANYONE any favors
john green is not a saint nor a hero nor does he, as with any other author/celebrity, need to be put on a pedestal. He’s said problematic things that need to be called out, addressed, and done away with.
But he’s also not The Worst Person In The World…
I think tumblr has a really. REALLY. Bad habit of either ‘idealizing a person to godlike status’ or turning them into a literal incarnation of Satan and like…that’s not how the world works
that’s not how PEOPLE work. I see it most often with him I think though
and again, I am sure part of it is because his main demographic on this site is teen girls and this site LOOOOVVEEEESSS to shit all over the interests of teen girls. so
Chairo generally only ‘copies’ an emotion/sensation from someone, in that if you’re happy or energetic he doesn’t leech it from you to ‘take’ it. I think he could if he tried, it’s just this personal taboo of his to put much thought to it.
He can also make you feel what he feels, even pain, but he doesn’t like touching people In General At All and also he feels it’s less awful than sucking something out of you
1. The pain will go away someday and will no longer leave its ghost to haunt you at night. You’ll hear beautiful songs instead of the murmurs of the monsters in your mind.
2. Don’t give up just yet. The stars still shine and you can still connect them to write your name. The moon is still up there with all its beauty. The constellations will never leave and abandon the sky.
3. Find solitude in the list of songs in your pocket. Close your eyes. Take deep breaths. Breathe in hope, joy, and love in your lungs. Breathe out the sorrow, melancholy, regrets, and frustrations in your veins.
4. Don’t drown yourself in your tears. Don’t use up all your energy in trying to sob quietly under the thickness of your make believe strength. Don’t cry over people who are not worth it, dearest.
5. As long as the sun continues to rise on the east and set on the west, you can still hope for a better tomorrow. Continue to hope. Continue to live.
Please let yourself be proud of small things. Please do that. Please allow yourself to get really excited about playing a video game well or sending an ask you were nervous about or letting a bug outside or peeling the whole orange in one try. Please get so excited about that. Please. That’s so cool I’m so glad you did it.
So I just got back last night from a brony convention in San Francisco. I was working a booth for a vendor friend, and let me tell you what happened:
We met a little girl who was there with her family. She got a button drawn at our booth, told us all about her favorite…
Hella things wrong with this. Most cons are put on by bronies, for bronies. The funds, the guest list, entertainment. All of that is to celebrate what they love. The name of the con wasn’t even mentioned.
Cons are meant to showcase an artist. And yeah, a lot of the brony fandom is adult stuff. You should have known that walking into a place like that, especially when there’s many many many reports on similar things happening. Most brony cons are not really meant for children, it’s meant for the adult fans.
Children are more than welcome to attend, but it’s not for them.
I love stillman more than words can express partly bc he works so well in a group dynamic……it’ll be next to impossible to use him again since on his own he’s just ‘giant nice old doctor man’ who naps in his spare time
hi! I’m a queer, trans, autistic youth currently stuck in an abusive living situation. I have one year until I can legally leave my parents, but I want to start gathering my resources as soon as possible. I’ve been planning this for about half a year, and things aren’t looking much better, and I have every intention to leave as soon as I can. I already have plans to stay with two of my friends where I’m moving. I’m looking for a job where I live currently, but no luck so far.
My parents are bigoted and unaccepting, I’ve had my binder and other clothing thrown out, packages redirected, and most recently, the threat of taking me off my antidepressants if I don’t start “acting like a girl”. I’m called slurs and yelled at, I hate being at home. I don’t feel safe or comfortable here, and I think it’s important to leave as soon as I can.
