Dear White Girls,
Please do not let white guys make jokes at your expense. While PoC may joke about white people to express frustration about white privilege, white men have no reason to do this to white women. They have no right. Not only is this a co-opt of our venting process, it’s sexism against you. The misogyny we face will not be the same, it will still be misogyny. It’s definitely worth a call out.

I’m in love with you,” he said quietly.
"Augustus," I said.
"I am," he said. He was staring at me, and I could see the corners of his eyes crinkling. "I’m in love with you, and I’m not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you."
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars (via dissapolnted)
What do ppl see in this book and this man like this is the most pretentious dribble I don’t understand help me understaaaaand

Augustus sounds like one of those very old bank managers
He likes to talk about how his books are great because the teenagers actually act like teenagers. Uh… what?
I’m imagining this scene in my head and I have no idea what these people look like but the dude is very clearly wearing a fedora.
"And I’m in love with you… M’lady."
