Hey John, what is your reaction to the news that the Riverside district has chosen to ban TFIOS from middle school libraries on the grounds that it deals with mortality and sex? I remember your reactions to similar situations concerning your books have been pretty animated and wondered what you thought?
I guess I am both happy and sad.
I am happy because apparently young people in Riverside, California will never witness or experience mortality since they won’t be reading my book, which is great for them.
But I am also sad because I was really hoping I would be able to introduce the idea that human beings die to the children of Riverside, California and thereby crush their dreams of immortality.

So please don’t think this is hateful in any way, it’s just that I’m still kind of confused about the whole gender thing.
So I get transgender, going from one gender to another. I get intersexed, having reproductive organs of both male and female/
but I don’t get Agender, gender fluidity, or anything like that.
To me, gender is a very physical thing. You have a penis? you’re a man. You have a vagina? Woman. I get how some people feel like they are trapped in the wrong gendeer’s body, I get how people feel like their gender is wrong. But I don’t get how you can not identify with one or the other.
I feel really overwhelmed with how big sexuality and gender has gotten. It’s not just boy and girl, straight, gay, or bi. It’s all so complicated with gender binaries, dozens of different sexual orientations, and all that.. And I kind of feel like some people might be total bullshit about it. Like they’re just saying they’re something to sound unique and cool.
To be honest though, I wish gender and sexual orientation wasn’t even a thing. Like, we could all just be human beings, love each other openly no matter what, and let it all hang out, so to speak.
Like, let’s just have co-ed bathrooms. Just put the urinals in some kind of stall too! Why bother making two separate bathrooms? Bet it costs more to do that.
Idk… this post went off track big time.
Whatever. It’s my blog so I get to ramble all I want about whatever I want.
Have a pleasant whatever time of day it is, my lovelies!
And please, feel free to explain the different gender things, enlighten me so I’ll understand!
or don’t. I could always just google it…
