I’m not a Harry Potter fan really, but I do give it much more credit than Twilight, particularly since the Harry Potter books are well-written, and Stephanie Meyer should be arrested for the murder of a thesaurus. So yes, I will give a Harry Potter post that mocks Twilight as a bonus.
This is way too entertaining…
Indeed. Here’s their food pyramid:
I’m glad you got away. I don’t think it’ll be glossed over so much as romanticized.
OMG HE LURRRRRVES ME SO MUCH 4EVA! HE WATCHED ME SLEEP AN HE WANTS TO SPENDS ALL HIS TIME WITH MEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yeah, that’s what they’re learning. You need a man, preferably a creepy man, or else you aren’t whole. And he’s gotta love you like Edward. Ew.
I love Kevin Smith. Especially when he takes down Twilight. There’s a graphic novel out now, so I hope it doesn’t migrate to comic-con.
OMG SPARKLING LIKE EDWARD????!!!!!
I’m glad you’re enjoying it because I have hated these books for so long. I typically do not believe books are a waste of space. These are. I cannot stand the message or the medium.
I helped a friend with research on a master’s thesis this summer. She wrote about implicit misogyny and threats infantilizing women. Guess what saga she used when talking about the teen demographic?
Choice Edward quotes:
I’ve never tried to keep a specific person alive before, and it’s much more troublesome than I would have believed. But that’s probably just because it’s you. Ordinary people seem to make it through the day without so many catastrophes.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 8, p.174
Your number was up the first time I met you.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 8, p.175
You don’t care if I’m a monster?
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 9, p.184
That is something to be afraid of, indeed. Wanting to be with me. That’s really not in your best interest.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 13, p.266
You only have to risk your life every second you spend with me, that’s surely not much.
Edward Cullen, Twilight, Chapter 14, p.305
It’s just that you are so soft, so fragile. I have to mind my actions every moment that we’re together so that I don’t hurt you. I could kill you quite easily, Bella, simply by accident. You don’t realize how incredibly breakable you are. I can never, never afford to lose any kind of control when I’m with you.

Okay, I took a practice LSAT online today and did really well. A little less scared. It looks kind of scary still though. I’m looking at dual psychology and JD programs, especially clinical forensic psych.
You’re further ahead. I’m a dual psychology and criminal justice major so I think I’ve got a year. Tell him to start studying for the LSAT now. Seriously.
On a weird side note, I just got your message today, when I’m pretty sure you sent it awhile ago. *gives Tumblr the side eye*
I know. I give him a pass. A minor one though. This is just like Carl Paladino hating on the GLBTQ community, then it comes out (pun intended) that he rented space to a gay club. A buck is a buck, who gives a fuck?
I think Robert Pattinson is a decent actor when not covered in glitter and forced to act like an emo little beastie on steroids.
Why thank you. I tried to read the books because some of my friends were raving about them. Couldn’t do it. Somewhere, near Stephanie Meyer’s house, a thesaurus lies beaten - that is the worst kind of writing.
So I tried listening to them on audio book. I will never forget how freaked out I was by the birthing scene and the message that having sex once, JUST ONCE YOU DIRTY WHORE, can flat out kill you.
Thanks to this anon, I’m about to post more shit about why Twilight sucks.
And thanks to my marvelous followers who are posting replies. You all rule the universe :)
I saw the one with Michael Moore and Rush Limbaugh as the same person. Was there another one? I don’t watch Family Guy often…
I’m so happy you heard the songs and Lt. Dan Choi’s message. Take care of yourself and we’re all here for you. Glad you liked my show too. If you ever need to talk, I check email compulsively - feel free to message me.
If you can, get to the Rainbow Resource Center and you can get info there. My friend Emily helps run it. You can contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You are not alone. Ever.
Thank you for this. You are not alone here. There is a supportive group of students on campus if you choose to stay in Wyoming. The Rainbow Resource Center is at the Student Union off 13th St. Go in the front doors and turn right. If you can get over there, you can talk with some great people and get some helpful information.
I understand how someone can be scared. I actually was not as brave when I was your age. I was awkward, felt like a dork, and just wanted high school to be over. I’m now 26, and things got better. I found my courage and I try to stand up for people now. Thank you for telling me I’m brave - it helps to hear it. You ARE brave by writing to me, even if it is anonymous. You seriously made my night by letting me know that what I have posted has helped you.
You don’t have to tell people you’re gay if you correct them when they use “fag” - you can just point out that it’s just the same as using a racial slur. Come out when you feel comfortable - don’t feel like you have to come out at a set time.
You are not alone in Wyoming. You are not alone as long as you reach out. I’m glad you wrote those numbers down. If you want, message me on Facebook and I will give you my email or number. You could also talk to the people at the Laramie Chapter of Big Brothers, Big Sisters.
There’s people out there who understand. Visit http://www.thetrevorproject.org/
It will get better. I want you to remember that. I’ll play a song for you this week since you said you’ll listen.
If I went to your school, we could be friends. And yes, I will go to lunch with you if we cross paths. You told me not to listen to anonymous bullies - same goes to you, anonymous or not. They don’t define you. You define you.
Take care of yourself,
Honorable Mentions: Robot Chicken, South Park, Burn Notice and Wonder Showzen. Don’t judge.
Right now, yeah, I’m fairly content and 100% unsure of my answer, particularly because I’m applying to grad and law schools within a year.
I always have the feeling it could be better, somehow, someway - but it could be a hell of a lot worse too. And you?
Thanks! If I don’t graduate from college soon, Tumblr is the reason.
