Let’s be honest- everyone knows mental illness isn’t “cute”. The reason for people’s fascination with it, lies deeper. It is the misconception, that only negative emotions are strong emotions, that an inner suffering and struggle is a sign of deep- and meaningfulness. Think of characters like…

Why don't you like John green? I usually agree with your opinion, but I really enjoyed "looking for Alaska"

Okay first  of all: Enjoy whatever you like, really, but be aware of who creates it. (I still like Eminem’s music no matter how much I am aware of how problematic he is) Now here have a list:

  • He is an intelligence/education elitist. This whole nerdculture, I-read-books-and-love-cool-history-facts-i-am-better-than-you attitude is really getting on my nerves (I’d love to give you sources on this but my internet here is slow and videos/gifs won’t load but you’ll find plenty in the tags)
  • The way he asked out his wife is beyond creepy and acceptable
  • He reblogged this very, very, very problematic post:(it’s from my blog so the explanation why it is problematic is there, too) 
  • Which leads to this very very very stupid quote from him
  • His writing and plotting is generally bad (this is now opinion), but just take a look atAn Abundance of Katherines’ wikipedia artice+ he needs really big effects to make the thing work: Main Character deaths (this is not something bad in itself but this is the only plot ever), overdramatic scenes (the kissing in the Anne Frank house- really, REALLY? ) + he always inserts himself in his main characters
  • He perpetuates the stereotype of the manic pixie dream girl and when called out on that he gets really whiny or says "but they do it too"
  • He made that manix pixie dream girl idea even more toxic (yes another one of my posts)
  • He says dumb things about women, claiming himself a feminist (and yet calling nerd girls resources)
  • He makes people scared of growing up and talks shit about adults

tl;dr: He is a self-entitled, arrogant, overrated mediocre author with some very harmful aspects.
