    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.

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

    This was meant to be a quick warm up, but it turned into a comic that I’ve wanted to draw for a while. This is something that is extremely important to me, and I appreciate it if you read it.

    A while ago, I heard a story that broke my heart. A family went a cat shelter to adopt. The daughter fell in love with a 3-legged cat. The father straight up said “absolutely not”. Because he was missing a leg. That cat was that close to having a family that loved him, but the missing leg held him back. Why?!

    Many people have the initial instinct of “nope” when they see an imperfect animal. I get it, but less-adoptable does NOT mean less loveable. 9 out of 10 people will choose a kitten over an adult cat. And those 10% that would get an adult cat often overlook “different” animals.

    All I want people to do is be open to the idea of having a “different” pet in their lives. Choose the pet that you fall in love with, but at least give all of them a fair shot at winning your heart.

    Don’t dismiss them, they deserve a loving home just as much as any other cat. They still purr, they still love a warm lap, they still play, they still love you. Trust me, next time you are in the market for a new kitty, just go over to that one cat that’s missing an eye and see what he’s all about!

    Let me tell to you a thing.

    This is Lenore. I first saw her in a little cage at the Petco I frequent (I used to take my parents’ dog in for puppy play time), and she looked like the grouchiest, old, crotchety cat in the world, and I fell instantly in love. She was cranky, she was anti-social, hanging out at the back of her cage. Her fur was matted because she wouldn’t let the groomers near her.

    She was perfect.

    But I didn’t have a place for her. I wasn’t living in my own space yet, and where I was, I wasn’t allowed cats. So I pressed my face to the bars of her cage and I promised that if no one had adopted her by the time I’d bought a house, I would come back for her.

    I visited her every week for over six months while I looked for a house. At one point, they had to just shave her entire rear-end because the mats or fur were so bad. They told me she clawed the heck outta the groomer that did it, screamed the entire time, and spent the next two days growling at anyone that came near the cage.

    A couple of weeks later, I closed on my house. I went back and I got an employee, and I said: “That one. I need that cat.”

    They got the paperwork and the lady who ran the rescue that was bringing the cats in told me that Lenore (at the time, Lila) was 8 years old, had been owned by an elderly lady who had died, and brought in to a different rescue, who’d had her for six months on top of the time I’d been seeing her at Petco.

    This kitty had been living in a 3x3’ cube for over a YEAR because she was older and “less adoptable.”

    I signed the paperwork, put her in a cat carrier, and drove her to my new home. I had pretty much nothing; a bed, an old couch, a couple of bookcases, and a tank of mice I called “Cat TV”. I let her out of the carrier and onto my bed, and I told her “I told you I would come back for you when I had a place. It’s not much, but it’s yours too now.”

    Lenore spent the next three days straight purring non-stop. She followed me around the house purring. Sat next to me purring. Slept next to me purring. Leaning into every touch, purring, purring, always purring. She still purrs if you so much as think about petting her. She’s amazing, and I love her.

    So, you know, if you’re thinking about adopting, and you see a beast that others consider “less adoptable,” think about Lenore.

    IM CRYING I LOVE CATS FUUUUCK

    This is beautiful ❤️

    yeah i mean how sociable or nice would yo be if you were a fucking cage for a year?

    "Your too fat."

    "I didn’t know [insert character] was black!"

    "Why don’t you do more black cosplays?"

    "Cosplay to your size!"

    "I don’t think that looks right on you, why don’t you cosplay [insert character] instead?"

    "Why is [insert character] black? They’re not black in the show."

    "You shouldn’t cross-play, it looks weird on you."

    "Your boobs are too big for [insert character]."

    To everyone who as ever posted a comment or question like this, my answer:

    I am a black plus size female cosplayer, if you don’t like it… well honestly I don’t care. The more you comment like an idiot, the more it feeds my will power to prove I’m an amazing cosplayer, not matter what you say. I may have days, or even weeks when I feel down about myself, but that will never stop me from doing what I love. I may have large boobs, chubby stomach, double chin, hair on my face, dark spots around my face and body, and a flat butt, but I rock any cosplay I put on. So grow up, and get out of my face. <3

    I really like you C:

    somewhere
    there is a women in China holding a black umbrella so she
    won’t taste the salt of the rain when the sky begins to weep,

    there is a 17 year old girl who smells like pomegranates and has summer air tight on her naked skin, wrapping around her scars
    like veins in a bloody garden, who won’t make it past tomorrow,

    there is a young man, who buys yellow flowers for the woman
    in apartment 84B, who learned braille when he realized she
    couldn’t read his poetry about her white neck and mint eyes

    there are people watching films,
    making love for the first time, opening mail with the
    heading of ‘i miss you’, cooking noodles with
    organic spices and red sauces, buying lemon detergent,
    ignoring ‘do not smoke’ signs, painting murals
    of his lips in abandoned warehouses, chewing
    the words ‘i love you’ over and over again, swallowing
    phone numbers and forgotten birthdays, eating
    strawberry pies, drinking white wine off of each
    others open mouths, ignoring the telephone,
    reading this poem

    somewhere
    someone is thinking
    i’m alone
    somewhere
    someone finally understands
    they never really
    were

    Casual reminder that we were supposed to have already gotten a Magneto film.

    Casual reminder that while the script was far from perfect it would have featured the following:

    • Magneto being an active member of the Jewish community.
    • His relationship with Magda and Anya.
    • Him coming to his mutant identity through his Jewish identity.
    • Going to university and being educated by a Jewish professor.
    • Joining the CIA to kill Nazis.
    • Him calling out Charles’ liberal nonsense and using Jewish life experiences to directly inform his plans for mutant kind. 
    • Magneto speaking Hebrew.
    • Magneto punching out a Nazi by using his Star of David necklace (YEAH YOU HEARD ME.)

    Also him working in a clinic for Holocaust survivors as per his actual canon storyline in the comics. 

    And him talking about how as a Jewish man he’ll always be hated but as a mutant NOW HE HAS THE POWER TO FIGHT BACK

    Important.

    Fucking important.

    Give me back the good elements of this script and let me see it put to fucking film. 

    Ok, I need a source for this.

    BUT

    Magneto kills Nazis sounds like a perfect film. Magneto being jewish is incredibly important and something that cannot/should not be overlooked.
