I have never read a John Green novel.
But I would care a lot more about critiques of him if any of the people I’ve seen shitting on him had actually read a John Green novel either.
Or pretty much anything that has ever come out of his mouth.
It’s really disgusting that people accuse John Green, a writer with clinical depression and anxiety to the point of it being very disabling at different times of his life, as someone who might romanticize and encourage teen suicide.
As an aside, I love his self awareness about his own writing. That shit is hard to do.
On the existence of his crash course videos alone, which provide free, accessible, consistent, intersectional, and quality higher level education to anyone with an internet connection (which is a fucking revolutionary concept and execution and should not be treated lightly) I am forever a fan of this man.

Incredible picture of a Native American warrior riding a cross between the Appaloosa and Akhal Teke breeds, called the Nez Perce horse. Picture from 1910.
This is an actual Nez Perce horse, not a crossbreed… the Appaloosa x Akhal Teke is a modern invention meant to recreate the original Nez Perce type which is now extinct.
