I think the plane crash one was a copy of alanis morisette ironic. She probably heard “when the plane crashed down he thought well isn’t this nice” and thought it was sooo deep!

as an artist i really don't get what's the problem with nudity in drawings and art
obviously it depends on how the piece is constructed but most of the time it's artistic nudity, and i personally think it's a great way to represent something natural, or sometimes vulnerability

Ok, even when some people think. that some of her poems are okay, they're not actually poems.
I know it's silly to compare. Gabbie Hanna to real, award winning poets, but consider her to two of my favourite female poets: Carol Ann Duffy and HD. A Duffy collection can cost like 10 bucks, and most of her poems you can just find online for free, anyway. I bring them up because with Gabbie's whole "men suck" thing (that I wholeheartedly agree with but god can she not write. it well,) is actually a sentiment that both Duffy and Doolittle have written AMAZING poems about, and there are several key differences that sets them apart from Gabbie Hanna, but I would say the biggest that qualifies Gabbie's as *not poetry* is the lack of poetic devices and intent. Poetry should have a poetic intent, and use literary devices to achieve that. Otherwise, it's not a poem—it's a "deep" tweet. The only devices I can see in her poem is unpurposeful enjambment popularized by Rupi Kaur's "Insta-poetry" brand, and maybe an alliteration in there just to make it sound funny.

Hey, giving healthy critism to things that really are weird is maybe ok....but criticizing just anything and everything just because you have to really sucks dude....everybody tries to do their best, they're giving their all, in whatever they're putting out there. Why not let them do what they like instead of keep pulling them down over and over. Calling out people who are doing wrong things is different, but this is not right at all. Just because you have a platform, doesn't give you the right to put urself on a pedestal where you feel like you can judge everything and everyone.

ngl gabbie hanna and dixie damilio have such ass music, i'd listen to lil pump and ice jj fish on repeat for a year before i click on one of their songs. she should've faded away with vine and dixie should've stayed on tiktok, better yet, she shouldn't have rode on her little sisters. fame at all.
i said what i said.

Im wondering if that „braile“ page is the only braile page in the entire book....
if she intended for someone to read it, but printed it on flat paper (doesnt matter if accidentally or intentional),
And its the only braile page in the book...
Wtf went through her mind...?
That would be the only page a blind person could „read“ 🤦🏾‍♀️

Most of the poems you criticise as being mean about men don't say anything about men at all?
They mostly are adressed towards some "you" that may or may not be a romantic partner and may or may not be a man.
Idk, maybe being straight but disliking men is a big part of her brand and it's reasonable to assume that's what she meant. I don't watch her, so I wouldn't know.
But without more context, that conclusion doesn't really seem justified to me tbh.

I mean I get where decline was supposed to be going but it needed to be a bit longer to be good, a poem about having a bit of a breakdown over your credit card and beginning to catastrophise could be relatable but in this format it just ends up coming out like a bad joke. Though I guess that criticism goes for a lot of the poetry in this book, it would benefit from being made longer.

I’ve been poetry writing for 4 years now. Everyday I grow as a writer, I write on topics that people may relate to, I write to help escape my issues, I write to help understand what is happening in my mind. Gabbie has the ability to write. Poems like “Distance” was beautiful, and the illustrations she shows helps add more to her words. But then you turn the page to something like “Hot” where the first two lines feel like something till she ruins it with “or a vape pen” and turns it to nothing. Poems don’t have to be long to give the reader the meaning you want to show, sometimes two lines can be more powerful than a pageful of words, but the way Gabbie does it, it feels like something from her notes app that she came up with that kinda rhymed. More of a tweet she would probably post instead of a poem. I saw her book in the store the other day and I picked it up along with another called “Pillow Thoughts”, and the complete DIFFERENCE between the two. Different to the fact you can see which one carried emotions and truth and one that carried empty words. Gabbie can write, but she chooses to make a “funny” joke instead of something that works.
