The Lonely King
Nico di Angelo. I feel so much for this kid. I’m not done with The House of Hades yet, but man, he needs some love. That book made me cry the other day. Please stop picking on my favorite character.
(Hopefully the contrast here is okay. My monitor is apparently very bright, but I did try to check this on a couple different screens.)
Nah, I don’t think so. Shaming people in a marathon isn’t productive.
Way to go you 50, Fat, Diabetic, Ahead of You Dickwad.
How is he shaming? He’s listing 3 facts about himself and a statement that is necessarily true depending on his position to the reader. Nothing shaming about it.
it’s kinda like the classic idea of “privilege”
rather than admiring this man and trying to be as awesome as he is (because seriously: fighting a chronic disease, advanced in years, out of shape, and running a marathon), self-centered people start thinking “he’s making me look bad”
and their solution to that is to try to drag him down to their level, if not lower
and so he is relegated the ranking of “dickwad”
when, in actual, real life, where living, breathing people interact, a lot of people probably found this humorous, or inspiring, or were even motivated to try to pass him
like honestly, if you’re the type to shrivel up and feel bad about yourself when you see this t-shirt, you probably aren’t the type to run a marathon anyway
