i bet john green thinks people don't like him because he's a dork or a nerd or whatever when in reality it's because he's a creep who panders to teenage girls so that he can amass some weird cult-like following and it's always girls who feel misunderstood you know and he goes out of his way to make them feel important and desirable which is fucking? weird? also he has a social media presence that is equivalent to that dad of a kid in your friend group who always volunteers to supervise the pool parties and scoots his lawn chair close to all the girls also his writing is some booboo lets get this enough notes so he has to address it and try to defend himself Imao John Green's blog You want me to defend myself against the implication that I sexually abuse children? Okay I do not sexually abuse children Throwing that kind of accusation around is sick and libelous and most importantly damages the discourse around the actual sexual abuse of children When you use accusations of pedophilia as a way of insulting people whose work you don't like you trivialize abuse I'm tired of seeing the language of social justice-important language doing important work-misused as a way to dehumanize others and treat them hatefully So we all seek and seek to share the jolt that accompanies outrage and anger As studies have shown the complicated dopamine rush that comes with righteous indignation is very powerful and I'm indulging it simply by responding to the outrageous accusation that my work is somehow evidence of sexual abuse But the outrage cycle is exhausting and while there are wonderful examples of outrage fueling long-term productive responses to injustice-We Need Diverse Books and the UPLIFT both come to mind-too often the Internet moves from jolt to jolt from hatred to hatred ever more convinced of our own righteousness and the world's evil And getting caught up in that is very painful I realize that will seem privileged to many of you and it is or like an excuse maybe it's that too or lacking in empathy maybe so and I'm sure there is plenty here to deconstruct and reveal my various shortcomings which are legion But this stops being a productive place for me to be in conversations if I'm not allowed to be wrong if my apologies are not acknowledged alongside my misdeeds and if I'm not treated like a person I think at this point it's impossible to continue to use tumblr in the way I've used it since 2011 My life is different in ways that are both good and bad this community is different in ways that are both good and bad the world is different in ways that are both good and bad So if this blog begins to look more one-way with more original content and less rebloggingcommentinganswering asksetc that's why I want to emphasize that I am ridiculously lucky to work on stuff I love from Crash Course to The Art Assignment to writing books And I trust that many nerdfighter communities-whether vlogbrothers or Dear Hank and John or the Wimbly Womblys or the kiva group-will continue to be open and collaborative and constructive Also I'm not angry or anything like that I just need some distance for my well-being Thanks for reading DFTBA EDIT To be clear sending hate to people who say this stuff is counter-productive and only continues the outrage cycle so please don't abuse anyone Thanks Honestly what the heck? Not liking his writing is one thing but accusing him of being a child molester out of absolutely nowhere? Get a grip tumblr This is why no one takes you seriously about actual problems because you trivialize words like rape and abuse and just throw them at anybody you don't like Accusing John Green of pedophilia and his defense Meme
