When people give me a list of excuses for why they’re not vegan
I’m just like
Huh. Unapologetic intolerance on a single, pet issue without any consideration of other perspectives that arise from cultural differences, health issues, and/or economic realities, and has generally a myopic view of anything that doesn’t fall directly inside their hyper-focused bubble of privilege?
Anonymous asked: why dont you like looking for alaska?
i know the reasons well enough in my head, but im not sure if ill be able to word them correctly…. ill try though, sorry if this gets long.
first of all the characters are boring. its generic and actually the plot is really stupid. theres your nerdy white boy, the VERY HOT SEXY girl (love interest), sidekick, and the obligatory person-who-isnt-white (takumi). like every freaking chance he got, the narrator, or maybe this was just john green wanting to write it as many times as possible idk, HAD to mention how ABSOLUTELY SEXY alaska was. every time. its always like “her SIGNIFICANT curves and ROUND, PLUMP ASS, her thin thighs and perky boobs.” then, spoiler alert, so the main character is SUPPOSEDLY in love with alaska but after she dies all he does is call her a bitch and whine about not being able to make out with her anymore. thats it. he doesnt even care to find out anything about her death, like the rest of the characters in the book that knew her. he literally shoots down all their ideas at trying to figure out if it was suicide or a drinking accident. i cannot bring myself to like ANY of the characters, besides maybe takumi or lara. the rule and punishment system at culver creek or w/e is just bullshit. you get caught smoking/drinking/whatever you get sent home wtf. you dont get a freaking warning. the writing of the characters is so basic and im pretty sure john green was just writing himself into the book under different names. not EVERY teenager is going to have your massive vocabulary, john green, when you realize that maybe then you can write realistic teenagers. this isnt all i have to say about the book but it got long so im done.
