So, I’ve been getting a lot of asks over the last few months asking why I strongly dislike TFIOS by John Green as much as I do. And for the most part, all the recent askers have been surprisingly polite, considering the more aggressive ones I’ve received in the past on the subject. Anyway, I’ve answered a bunch of them separately, but I’ve decided to condense all of my theories, opinions and arguments into one succinct post.
the great feminist icon margaret thatcher, who was friends with and and who lobbied against the deportation of chilean dictator augusto pinochet for war crimes and crimes against humanity, the great feminist icon margaret thatcher who called nelson mandela a ‘grubby little terrorist’, the great feminist icon margaret thatcher who colluded with paramilitary death squads who illegally killed hundreds of people in northern ireland, on her own sovereign soil
hahahaha go fuck yourself
the great feminist icon margaret thatcher who protected jimmy savile, the great feminist icon margaret thatcher who was fucking instrumental in ensuring i didn’t have enough to eat as a child, the great feminist icon margaret thatcher who destroyed the livelihoods of generations of miners, fucked their communities in ways that are still being felt now, and encouraged police brutality against people trying to protect themselves from destitution
Preach, she ain’t ever been no icon of mine.
