John Green on Perspective. And this is where I go, oh, he had depression? and sigh a bit in relief that I am not alone.

I am still so anxious but at least I am sort-of doing things about it (watching vlogbrothers videos & journaling). 

cartoonwonderful:

it does seriously bother me when people criticize john green for the manic pixie dream girl thing because he is the entire reason i know that trope is bullshit.

because paper towns is entirely about righteously ripping the trope apart. the manic pixie dream girl trope is problematic and sexist. it is a trope that encourages treating other human beings as ideas and fantasies rather than people. and i know that because of john green. he taught me that.

This is so very accurate. Actually I wrote my undergraduate thesis about this exact thing (no, really, I wrote a gender studies thesis about John Green, it’s true, it even passed and earned me departmental honors), so, you know. If you want to read like 60 pages about it. Hit me up.
