literally thats all anyone would need to tell me to get me to hate john green

"did you know in one of his books the two main characters make out in the anne frank house"

thats literally making out with someone at a holocaust memorial that’s awful what the fuck

especially in the context of the scene, like they act like they’re Taking It Back For True Love bc no one else appreciates the anne frank house in the right way, i love when white christians reclaim holocaust memorials

Most people don’t appreciate things of historical significance in the right way.

A few days ago, I Michelangelo’s David and it was utterly overwhelming to me that he was real and in front of me and the Michelangelo had carved that and it had stood the test of time and it was so beautiful they couldn’t put on top of the Duomo cause he was so freaking beautiful even if it meant he was out of proportion when you saw him up close and I was awestruck.I walked past his slaves were you could see the marks his chisel had made.

But how many people do you think have gone to the Academia and just glanced at it. just to say they have?

How many people go to the Anne Frank House and do just the same? At least Hazel acknowledged that people lived there and that they have lives and they loved people there. I mean it wasn’t the most tactful of gestures but more then likely they would’ve been surrounded by tourists who didn’t even recognize that. 

Yes, the kiss wasn’t the most respectful thing, but it’s not any worse then meandering through a place where people, real people hid and lived in fear and still managed to love and learn and just snapping a few pics as evidence without appreciating or often even acknowledging the history of the place. 

you do realize this book is not about real people

those are fictional characters in a fictional scenario that was written by a christian man in his 30s who wrote a scene basically trying to reclaim the anne frank house as a romantic tourist attraction for the sake of his characters

he literally used the tragedy suffered by those people to create a scene specifically for his characters to get off on

and then he had people in that scene applauding what they did.

this literally has nothing to do with academia the anne frank house isn’t a work of art it’s a memorial to a horrifying act of human cruelty and john green used that as the backdrop for a LOVE STORY effectively ignoring the importance of the memorial for the sake of his white christian protagonists

he literally used a serious tragedy and the deaths of millions of people as inspiration porn for his main characters and how their story is more important like he could have had them kiss anywhere but he wrote them kissing in the anne frank house on purpose

and that is gross

"Nazi war crimes make me so hot, let’s make out!"

It would make a fun Muppets movie

Possibly, except the swamp and banjo are sort of inspired by the opening of The Muppet Movie so I mean… sort of recursive there…

I’ve never been female. But I have been black my whole life. I can perhaps offer some insight from that perspective. There are many similar social issues related to access to equal opportunity that we find in the black community, as well as the community of women in a white male dominate society…

When I look at — throughout my life — I’ve known that I wanted to do astrophysics since I was 9 years old…I got to see how the world around me reacted to my expressions of these ambitions. All I can say is, the fact that I wanted to be a scientist, an astrophysicist was hands down the path of most resistance through the forces of society.

Anytime I expressed this interest, teachers would say, ‘Oh, don’t you wanna be an athlete?’ I want to become someone that was outside of the paradigm of expectations of the people in power. Fortunately, my depth of interest of the universe was so deep and so fuel enriched that everyone of these curve balls that I was thrown, and fences built in front of me, and hills that I had to climb, I just reach for more fuel, and I just kept going.

Now, here I am, one of the most visible scientists in the land, and I wanna look behind me and say, ‘Where are the others who might have been this,’ and they’re not there! …I happened to survive and others did not simply because of forces of society that prevented it at every turn. At every turn.

…My life experience tells me that when you don’t find blacks, when you don’t find women in the sciences, I know that these forces are real, and I had to survive them in order to get where I am today.

So before we start talking about genetic differences, you gotta come up with a system where there’s equal opportunity, then we can have that conversation.

Neil DeGrasse Tyson in response to a question posed by Lawrence Summers, former Treasury Security and Harvard University President

"What’s up with chicks and science?"

Are there genetic differences between men and women, explain why more men are in science.
