Anonymous said: Why are there petitions to stop after??? Bc Anna changed the names in the book and movie so the boys wouldn't be involved. And most people have been involved and reading the book for awhile so I think it would be pretty harsh to just rip that dream away from Anna and the fans
NO ONE CARES ABOUT THE FACT THAT ITS HARRY THAT IS SECONDARY TO THE REAL PROBLEM WHICH IS THAT IT FUCKING ROMANTICIZES MENTAL AND EMOTIONAL ABUSE
I DONT CARE ABOUT ANNA AND HER DREAMS OKAY I CARE ABOUT THE LITTLE GIRLS WHO ARE GOING TO READ THIS BOOK OR SEE THIS MOVIE AND THINK THAT THAT KIND OF RELATIONSHIP IS DESIRABLE. I CARE ABOUT THE LITTLE GIRLS WHO WILL END UP IN A RELATIONSHIP LIKE HARRY AND TESSA’S. I CARE ABOUT THE LITTLE GIRLS WHO WON’T UNDERSTAND THAT THAT KIND OF RELATIONSHIP IS BAD AND HORRIBLE. I CARE ABOUT THE LITTLE GIRLS WHO WILL INTERNALIZE THE IDEAS PORTRAYED IN THE STORY. BECAUSE EVEN IF EVERYTHING ENDS UP HAPPY IN THE BOOK, THINGS /DONT/ IN REAL LIFE. ABUSERS VERY VERY VERY RARELY STOP ABUSING. ABUSERS VERY VERY VERY RARELY CHANGE. I DO NOT CARE ABOUT ANNA’S CRUSHED FUCKING DREAMS, I CARE ABOUT LITTLE GIRLS’ CRUSHED FUCKING SELF ESTEEMS AND EMOTIONS AND EVEN BODIES DEPENDING ON THE TYPE OF ABUSE THIS NOVEL MAKES THEM SUSCEPTIBLE TO. AFTER OPENS DOORS IN ITS READERS MINDS AND MAKES THEM DESIRE A RELATIONSHIP LIKE HARRY AND TESSA’S, THATS THE ROMANTICIZATION. IF YOURE ONE OF THE PEOPLE WHO’S GOING TO ARGUE AGAINST THAT, IM FUCKING PROOF OKAY. AFTER I READ AFTER I WANTED TO BE FAMOUS LIKE ANNA. I WANTED PEOPLE TO READ AND LOVE MY FIC. SO I WROTE A DARK HARRY FIC IN WHICH HE ONLY USES THE GIRL FOR SEX AND HE SEXUALLY HARASSES HER, BECAUSE I THOUGHT THAT WAS A GOOD STORY LINE AND GOOD BEGINNING TO A RELATIONSHIP BECAUSE THATS WHAT AFTER TAUGHT ME. I WROTE A DARK LOUIS FIC IN WHICH HE /RAPES/ THE ORIGINAL FEMALE CHARACTER, BECAUSE I THOUGHT THE MORE EXTREME YOU GO, THE MORE PEOPLE WILL READ IT. I THOUGHT THE MORE HE HURTED HER AND THEN WAS SORRY FOR IT, THE MORE BROKEN AND IRREPARABLE HE WAS, THE MORE PEOPLE WOULD ENJOY THE STORY. BECAUSE THATS WHAT AFTER TAUGHT ME.
BUT I CAME TO MY SENSES AND I REALIZED WHAT I WAS DOING AND I STOPPED. AND I REALIZED WHAT AFTER WAS DOING AND I STOPPED READING IT. BUT THERES LITTLE GIRLS LIKE THAT WHO WON’T REALIZE, AND THEYRE GOING TO LIVE THEIR LIVES WITH THIS IDEA THAT THE KIND OF RELATIONSHIP PORTRAYED IN AFTER IS HEALTHY, EVEN DESIRABLE, AND THEYRE GOING TO GET STUCK IN A SIMILAR SITUATION, BUT IT /WON’T END FOR THEM/ BECAUSE THIS IS REAL FUCKING LIFE.
I HONESTLY FORGET WHAT YOUR MESSAGE SAID AT THIS POINT BC IM ON MOBILE AND I CAN’T SEE IT, AND IM SORRY FOR THE CAPS, BUT THERE IS NO DEFENSE OF AFTER THAT WILL MAKE ME THINK DIFFERENTLY. THESE ARE THE FACTS. THE GOOD THING ABOUT FACTS IS WHETHER OR NOT YOU BELIEVE THEM, THEYRE STILL TRUE. AFTER IS TOXIC AND INDEFENSIBLE. AFTER ROMANTICIZES ABUSE. IM SORRY THAT WE’RE TRYING TO TAKE AWAY THE AUTHOR’S DREAMS, BUT SHE CAN GET A BOOK DEAL WITH SOMETHING THAT WON’T POTENTIALLY RUIN PEOPLE’S LIVES, WITH SOMETHING THAT WON’T TRIGGER PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN IN ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIPS EXACTLY LIKE HARRY AND TESSA’S, WITH SOMETHING THAT PORTRAYS A HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP.
It’s just a book.
And politicians are just people! And advertisements are just video clips! And essays are just words! Oh my god!! Would you look at that!! Things can influence people!! What a fucking concept!!!!!!!!!! Fuck, why don’t I go into a church and tell those people its just a book!!!! Why don’t I interrupt the president someday to tell everyone he’s just a person!!! Wow!!!!!! Things influence people I cannot /believe/!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
