I think people on Tumblr need to stop criticizing books and movies because they feel that they promote ideas different from their own.
The great thing about entertainment media is that you can take it and make it your own. It can be as narrow or as broad as you want it, as long as you’re happy.
You don’t even have to like the book! You just shouldn’t criticize it just because you disagree.
Unless it’s Twilight. Or 50 Shades. Those are okay.
this website SAVED MY BRAIN when i was a stressed out college student who couldn’t stop flipping out long enough to prioritize. quite a few of you are still suffering through college so i hope this helps you too!! c:
John Green romanticizes mental illness and basically has his readers under the impression that love conquers all and a relationship is all you need to overcome mental illness.
And I hate him for that.
I don’t think that’s the goal or even the idea behind it. I think it’s one book about two people who are sick and happen to find something great in each other to make a shitty life bearable. It doesn’t have to be a relationship. But if readers find that relationships help them, then GREAT. Who are you to take that away from anyone? It’s not a rule that applies to everyone and it doesn’t have to apply to you. But it can.
Young Dad Wins Back Custody of Child Adopted Without Consent
26-year-old Jeremiah Sampson waged a three-year court battle that forced him to drop out of college to pay for legal expenses in gaining custody of his child.
Sampson drove five hours to Rolla, Mo., once or twice a week for more than six months to challenge the adoption in court. The adoptive parents threw a towel over the baby’s head in court, refusing to let him look at his birth father.
Born and raised in Coweta, Oklahoma, Sampson had four older brothers, three sisters and a mother who worked two jobs to support them all. He didn’t meet his father until he was 13 and hasn’t seen him much since.
“I would never do that to my own flesh and blood,” Sampson said. “I would never walk away from my own child.”
Sampson is now suing the adoption agency for violating his parental rights by going ahead with the placement even after he objected.
