Some people think The Giving Tree is a timeless tale of love and sacrifice. Those people are wrong. Ryan Gosling will help you understand:

That book is so fucked up; that story’s the worst. I mean, at the end the tree is a stump and the old guy just sitting on him; he’s just used him to death, and you’re supposed to want to be the tree? Fuck you. You be the tree. I don’t want to be the tree.

You know who else will help you? The Sassy Gay Friend. And Boo Radley!
