All the things I want to say about Twilight… but haven’t gotten around to yet

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kathryn @ 1:18 am

Well, I guess it’s too late. I’ve been meaning to write about how much I abominate the Twilight books/films, but Gina Barreca beat me to it at Psychology Today.

She’s even funny.

I’d curl up and cry over my general redundancy as a human being if I wasn’t still howling I KNOW. FOR REAL about her #1 reason to hate Twilight.

Idiot children.

And then you see the mag covers where Kristin Stewart offers the sage opinion that Twilight is all about feminism because R. Patt-head is really nothing more than a sex object.

Which shows a mind-blowing grasp of feminist thought.

As Carl gently offered me in the bookstore today, “Do we need to leave? Do you want to hit things?”

Yes, honey. We must go. I must smash things with my hammer now.

I love you.

I love you too.

  3. I feel so educated from reading your blog. 🙂

    I previously knew nothing about Twilight. I did know that there was a really popular series out there about vampires, and that by itself sounded like an evil way to waste one’s time, but now that I’ve read that enlightening article, I realize that there are several more reasons to wrinkle up my nose in condemnation.

  4. Aw, thanks.

    To be fair, I haven’t read the books… just enough to know I don’t really have a desire to.
