Before John Green, his general category of realistic (non-fantasy) YA was rife with teen angst and “issues” fiction that you might have associated with the legendary Judy Blume, or with newer writers like Sarah Dessen or Laurie Halse Anderson. Anderson’s classic 1999 novel Speak, about a high schooler struggling to deal with the aftermath of sexual assault, was so influential that three years later Penguin launched an entire imprint named after it. One of the books launched under the behest of Speak was Green’s Looking for Alaska. But it’s Green whose name you’re more likely to know today, not Anderson’s, although Anderson has won more awards and written more books.



On Twitter, Green has 2 million followers. Compared to the rest of the leaders in Young Adult fiction, that number is staggering. To approach even half the Twitter influence of John Green all by himself, you need an entire army of YA women. Anderson, Blume, Dessen, Veronica Roth, Cassandra Clare, Richelle Mead, Margaret Stohl, Kami Garcia, Rainbow Rowell, Maureen Johnson, Malinda Lo, Holly Black, LJ Smith, Ellen Hopkins, Shannon Hale, Lauren Myracle, Libba Bray, Melissa Marr, and Leigh Bardugo: As a group these women only have about 1.2 million followers on Twitter.

That’s the voice of one man outweighing several decades of women who have had major successes, critical acclaim, and cultural influence.

When a man succeeds in a devalued (because of its association with women) field, he legitimizes it in popular opinion.

  • fetuses do not think
  • they do not “scream out” when they are aborted
  • they have no brain function and no nerve endings until long after the deadline for a legal abortion
  • they aren’t “sad” when you abort them
  • they do not “realize what is happening”

And these aren’t my beliefs, they’re scientific facts

So my close friend started this petition to allow trans people to join the army, because it’s her friend’s dream to do so, but the army apparently sees being transgender as a mental illness. It’s clearly not only discrimination, but misinformation. The petition was literally just created a few seconds ago,  so it only has my signature and a few others on it right now. But we have a good month to see this pick up the pace and get bigger.If you could sign this and pass the post on, it’d be really really helpful. All you really need to do is create an account and sign it, so it’s not too hard at all! If anything, reblog this to signal boost it or something. But if you really can just take like. 5 seconds out of your day, it wouldn’t be that hard to see someone’s dream come true, along with many others. You’ll also be helping to stop some discrimination against trans individuals which is a big plus too.Thanks!

“Despite the common assumption that unpaid interns are privileged college kids, a 2012 study showed that they are mostly middle- or working-class, and often hold down second jobs to pay the bills. They’re also 77 percent more likely to be female.”

'No one should have to work for free': Is this the end of the unpaid internship? - In Plain Sight

CAN WE TAKE A MOMENT TO TALK ABOUT THIS. UNPAID INTERNS ARE 77% MORE LIKELY TO BE FEMALE AND PRIMARILY COME FROM MIDDLE OR WORKING CLASS BACKGROUNDS.
