PERCY JACKSON AND GROVER UNDERWOOD ARE BEST FRIENDS AND I WISH PEOPLE WOULD STOP ERASING IT.

LEO VALDEZ AND PIPER MCLEAN ARE BEST FRIENDS AND I WISH PEOPLE WOULD STOP ERASING IT.

PERCY JACKSON WAS EXTREMELY CLOSE FRIENDS WITH CHARLES BECKENDORF AND I WISH PEOPLE WOULD STOP FORGETTING THAT.

CLARRISE LA RUE CARED ABOUT SILENA BEAUREGARD WITH ALL HER HEART AND I WISH PEOPLE WOULD STOP FORGETTING THAT.

PERCY JACKSON AND RACHEL ELIZABETH DARE WERE GREAT FRIENDS BEFORE SHE LIKED HIM AND STILL WERE AFTER AND I WISH PEOPLE WOULD STOP ERASING THAT.

I WISH PEOPLE REMEMBERED BIANCA DI ANGELO FOR MORE THAN JUST LEAVING NICO FOR THE HUNTERS. SHE WANTED TO BE FREE.

I WISH PEOPLE REMEMBER ZOË NIGHTSHADE FOR MORE THAN ‘THE DAM SNACK BAR’. SHE FOUGHT BRAVELY FOR ARTEMIS.

I WISH FRANK WAS TAKEN MORE SERIOUSLY BY THE FANS AND STOP BEING WRITTEN OFF AS THE AWKWARD ONE.

I WISH LEO WOULD STOP BEING LABELED AS THE FLIRT.

I WISH THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN LEO AND CALYPSO WASN’T SO CRUSHING TO THE FORMING OF THEIR CHARACTER.

I WISH PERCY WASN’T CALLED A GOOFBALL BUT THEN NOT CONSIDERED FOR HOW SMART HE REALLY IS.

I WISH PEOPLE REMEMBERED THALIA’S PAIN WHEN JASON WAS TAKEN AWAY.

AND THALIA FEELING THAT PAIN AGAIN WHEN LEARNING ABOUT LUKE.

I WISH PEOPLE REMEMBERED THAT LUKE WASNT ALWAYS A BAD GUY AND THAT HE TRULY CARED ABOUT ANNABETH.

PERCY WAS NOT UPSET AT NICO FOR ‘NOT BEING HIS TYPE’. HE WAS CONFUSED THAT SOMEONE HE THOUGHT HATED HIM COULD HAVE BEEN IN LOVE WITH HIM. CONSIDER THIS, PLEASE.

TYSON EXISTS. WOW.

I WISH THAT WILL SOLACE WAS TAKEN MORE SERIOUSLY. HE IS NOT JUST NICO’S BOYFRIEND. HE IS A FIERCE, INTELLIGENT DOCTOR WHO HELPED MANY IN THE WAR DURING “THE LAST OLYMPIAN” (HE HELPED ANNABETH!)

REYNA HAD A VALID REASON TO FEEL PAIN WHEN PERCY SAID HE WAS NOT INTERESTED IN HER. IT STINGS.

RACHEL ALSO HAD A VALID REASON.

SO DID CALYPSO.

AND SO DID NICO.

THESE CHARACTERS ARE SO MUCH MORE THAN WHAT THEIR LABELED AS AND WHAT PEOPLE REMEMBER.

Add more if you can think of any. I just r e a l l y had to rant about this at 2 am.

Amandla Stenberg Is a Voice for the Future
Neo-feminist, biracial, post-gender . . . eighteen-year-old actress and commentator Amandla Stenberg is an inspired, eloquent voice for the future.

“I don’t think gender even exists.” It’s a sunny day in Los Angeles, and the eighteen-year-old actor Amandla Stenberg is sitting under a flowering tree in the backyard of her rented bungalow in West L.A., very much living up to her reputation as the wokest teenager alive. “My sexuality’s very fluid and my gender is very fluid,” says Stenberg, who is petite and cherubic at five feet three, dressed in black denim overalls and a purple-and-white thrift-store shirt, her hair cropped short for her latest movie. “I don’t think of myself as statically a girl.”

Stenberg was already known for playing Rue in 2012’s The Hunger Games when, two years ago, a video she made for a high school class went viral online. Titled “Don’t Cash Crop My Cornrows,” it’s a romping Internet mash-up in which Stenberg delivers a thesis worthy of an American-studies dissertation in four and a half minutes flat: The adoption of the hairstyle by non-black pop stars such as Christina Aguilera and Katy Perry is part of a larger appropriation of black culture that divorces its aesthetics from the struggle that produced them. Narrating on-camera with the confidence of a trial lawyer, Stenberg closes her case with a pointed question: “What would America be like if we loved black people as much as we love black culture?”
