John Green's successful novels should be enough evidence that the author has a way with words. If they're not, a recent touching Tumblr post should do the trick.

An anonymous user reached out to Green on his Tumblr for advice concerning unsupportive parents. In the post, the user said he/she is a 22-year-old with cerebral palsy who also identifies as bisexual. After explaining how his/her parents make “nasty remarks” about the LGBTQ community and noting an incident where he/she was called a “cripple,” the user requested Green’s advice. The author had the perfect response.


John Green, you are truly a gem.
