John Green recently responded to 'criticism' he faced for his books, especially Fault in Our Stars. People found his focus on characters finding self-worth creepy, and his writing generally of a low standard, to which he responded with some honestly rather intelligent points.I find this weird, because I thought tumblr was all about John Green and this feel-good, everyone is ok believing what they want thing, but apparently I was wrong. I'm not John Green's biggest fan, ironically (considering he was attacked on tumblr of all places) his criticism on CrashCourse is very feminist-focused, which I don't really care for. And I find it weird, and really quite enraging, how he has nothing good to say about Aristotle but has nothing bad to say about Thomas Aquinas. Which if you understand anything about Thomas Aquinas will make you step back and bit and think '... wait, eh?' - but I can't hate him. He at least tries to introduce people to good literature, and get them thinking about books on a more complex level than just 'Oh, enjoyed that' or 'Oh, didn't enjoy that'. And his CrashCourse videos are usually good for an engaging GCSE class to introduce them to the topic. I can't not like him, but I can take issue with him - sure. Still, I find the things said about him on tumblr to be ... idiotic, frankly. Here's an article discussing to this: http://www.buzzfeed.com/jarrylee/john-green-responded-on-tumblr-to-accusations-of-sexual-abus#.fpvAEwjvW What does everyone think about this? P.S. Other thread names I considered include: Tumblr, the hate group strikes again. Why it's good idiots are not trusted with actual literature or to have actual opinions. Why some people's opinions are worthless. Urrrghhhhhhh, the stupid! It burns!
