I have never and will never read the Twilight books (I refuse to read a book that has ‘twinkling’ fricken vampires in it) and I have never and will never put such a ‘girl’ status up on my facebook.
I’m guessing she is, what..14? And JAmes–I would say chocolate bonbon’s not pringles. And from what things I have heard of the books and characters, that Edward person sounds like a whiny manipulative person.
Ugh. I judge people who like that book and wants their lives to be like it.
I hate these books I hate these books I hate these books I hate these books I hate these books I hate these books I hate these books I hate these books I hate these books I hate these books I hate these books I hate these books I hate these books I hate these books I hate these books…I never believed in book burning before Twilight.
Hell, I’d say that too. How annoying is it that society is basing their ideas of what a relationship should be like off of a fiction (not to mention horribly written) book. I hope she finds her “Edward Cullen” and he drains the blood right out of her brain.
Embarrassing admission here….I read the book. After several of my 30something year old friends begged me to because it was just that amazing. (I don’t take their book recommendations any more.) Honestly, if ever I’m praying that a man not only stalk me, but treat me like crap half the time he will publicly acknowledge my existence, I do wish someone would shoot me. But hopefully if they do, they can make a horribly lame fb update about it so it can make it here. The circle would then be complete.
And as horrible as he is, she’s no better. The whiny little brat anyway…I have no doubt that I second-guessed myself once in a while as a teenager, but for fucksake, “will he like what I’m wearing? I’m not worth his love” boofuckinghoo. Whiny little brat anyway.
Bella is a whiny little bitch (she does eat though, this guy must have been referring to kirsten stewart from the movie and how thin she is) but i still read every book cos i liked the love story. Bella was a disgrace for all women heroine figures and Edward…I don’t think he had any actualy skills aside from being really really really good looking. It was actually an incredibly shallow book.
Misanrist – maybe because it’s so shallow, it’s so popular
also, if Edward was so good looking in the book, how come they picked a yard ape to play him in the movie? I see at least a dozen guys better looking than that dude every day just walking down the street
so i don’t understand why people love/hate these books so much… when twilight first came out i read it, disliked it but didn’t voice my opinion on the subject every where i go.
Let the whinny tweens want their edward, wouldn’t that be an easier way for guys to know the girl is crazy. And the people who hate it so much, chill no one makes you read at all, much less twilight. SO grow up and let it go.
@Jo You’re at the wrong site if you don’t want people to comment on things…that’s about half of the point. Someone posts something lame and relatively anonymous people make commentary. That’s how it goes. No one is saying that all Twilight fans are fat, simply that the post at hand refers to potential weight problems.
The part the bothers me most about Twilight (yes I’m still ranting about Twilight) is not the tween/teen set that obsesses. That is nothing new. It’s the grown-ass women. The grown-ass MARRIED women who obsess about this. I have a friend whose mother (in her 50′s) has a poster of this Edward douche above her bed. And she’s MARRIED!!!
Brilliant! I have a banner ad for a company called just-eat.co.uk at the bottom of this post. I can see all the tubby munters getting really frustrated reading this post and thread, then clicking on the ‘just-eat’ fast-food delivery banner to comfort themselves.
My missus has just watched the twilight dvd. Should I be very worried…?
why is there no pictures of BLACK HOT COCK in this site? i want to see some pussyfag white slave whores getting mastered and dominated by STRONG MONSTER BLACK COCKS THAT ARE HUGE THICK AND VERY FAT. I WANT TO SEE BLACK COCK FUCK TINY WHITE TEENS SLOWLY TO GET THEIR PUSSIES WATER AND JUICE white pussy cum so that black fat nigga cock can fuck it FAST AND DEEP. then i want to see some SLUT WHORE WHITE OR ASIAN HOE LICK BLACK BALLS WHILE BLACK MONSTER ABDOMINAL BLACK MAN COCK RESTS ON THEIR WHOLE FACES
After I saw the preview for the New Moon movie I just about puked on my laptop. After reading some really great werewolf novels (Kelley Armstrong, Robert Mccammon etc.)I just can’t imagine ever reading a Twilight book or seeing any of the movies. They are definitely geared towards impressionable, daydreaming teens. Twinkle, twinkle, great big barf!
i don’t care what your justification is. if you read twilight and you are over the age of 12, you’re retarded. justin is full of win, and sandra is full of self-loathing, blubber, and probably a twilight dildo.
The entire current 13-16 year old male population of the world will possibly have their entire lives blighted by the fact that they will never live up to the “perfection” of a character from a book series that was popular during their formative sexual years.
Sucks to be them.
I am loving all of this Twilight slagging. I’d also like to add to the excellent comments/criticisms above that it is BORING and stupid. What does everyone think of Renesmee, the most irritating child ever created in fiction?
Twilight sucks. Honestly Edward is a pansy anyway, I prefer real men myself Especially one that isn’t forever pulling away, following me around like a puppy dog, pulling away, puppy dog, pulling away, puppy dog…”oh shit I kissed you! ahhhh!!!”…more pulling away…”MARRY ME!”…wtf.
And yes OOBL, but I’d rather not refer to the Twilight series as ‘fiction’, more like ‘poorly written fan fiction’.
made me laugh forcibky
i bet that all the girls winging are fat bitches anyways
just because no one can see you behind a keyboard dosnt mean you can complain about those hating males that just dont understand
I want to take a melon scoop and remove the part of my brain that has to do with Twilight…people I know who read the books, Faux-Vampires that take cues from pop culture, Hot Topic, etcetera ad nausem.
Seriously–books are escapism, I agree. But living your life about them is schizoid…
I fucking hate Twilight and I fucking hate all the girls that change their fucking names on myspace and facebook to ‘Mrs Edward Cullen’ or some shitburger variation of their own name, like ‘Betty Cullen’. Fucking morons – he’s a fictional piece of shit. Someone should burn all the books and DVD’s in a large bonfire along with the vast collection of High School Musical crap.
edward is how old, 100 something? and he’s what, a virgin?!? once i got to that part in the book i had to stop. it seems the only people who truly believe love like edward’s exist and those who have yet to read any form of literature other than what hot topic and seventeen vomits at them.
@103 i worked in a bookstore where parents were asking me if the series was appropriate for their 10 year old. i was also taking two young adult literature classes….lets just say i didn’t have a choice.
I plan on reading Twilight thoroughly so I can defend my hate. YES my hate is ignorant because I haven’t read it. I don’t need to eat a piece of shit to know it will make me vomit. But it will make me more educated on how to explain to shit eaters that what they are eating is indeed crap.
I mean I get that the whole trend is starting to get old, but shouldn’t people at least be happy that kids are reading and attempting to educate themselves, at least they will end up being smart fat chicks, ones that you will eventually call boss, and kiss their fat asses while you beg to keep your minimum wage job because you never took the time to open a book, not even one that has a grade 5 reading level… I dont think someones weight reallllyyyy has much to do with their reading preferences, when did this research take place? really when?
In general, it’s good that kids are reading. However, the issue here isn’t that they’re poorly written or that the vampires sparkle – if that was all that was wrong with the books, I’d take the “At least kids are reading” stance, too.
The problem is that not only do the idealised, romanticised leads give girls completely unrealistic expectations for relationships (just as porn gives boys unrealistic expectations for sex), these guys who every teenage girl are “SOOOO in love with!” also display creepy, manipulative, and potentially abusive traits. Seriously, go find a checklist of warning signs for future abuse, and try applying it to Edward or Jacob, then ask yourself if you’d want your daughter or sister or best girl friend dating that kind of guy. THAT is what’s wrong with Twilight.
@jenna: But they’re not healthy standards. The kind of behavior romanticized in the books– “I want to kill you, but I won’t, because I love you… You mean EVERYTHING to me… etc.”– and the sense of ownership on the part of the male lead over the female lead are behaviors that, in real life, would indicate a potentially abusive relationship. I used to volunteer at a women’s shelter and the kinds of cultural ideas that let women think abusive behavior in their husbands’/boyfriends’ is normal or acceptable (or even desirable and manly!) when it’s, well, abusive, is NOT harmless.
oh, jesus christ. it’s a storybook vampire, not the wifebeater-clad, drunken, one-armed drummer of def leppard. calm fucking down.
the issue here is less that Edward is some creepy, postmortem, much-hotter Ike Turner waiting to jump out of the coffin and give Bella a black eye. the issue is that if Twilight is a reminder of a cultural subtext that makes girls think it’s okay to be a possession to a man, or to accept abusive, creepy behavior from a man, then we have a lot more to worry about. like commercials and other forms of advertising, books they’re reading in school, and for god’s sakes, guess-the-flabby-female-celebrity-ass on the cover of the enquirer.
i think it makes much more sense to teach our girls how to have high standards and expectations, a realistic self-view, and how to separate fantasy from reality. then we won’t need people taking the piss out of good, fun novels.
