a softer world

Writer's Block: Twilight is nearing

How do you feel about the upcoming Twilight film? Are you a fan or a critical bystander?

I get angry about Twilight. Mostly because Edward and Bella's deeply disturbing relationship is touted as the ideal to a world full of very impressionable teenage girls who don't bother to look for subtext.

Enjoying it as a guilty pleasure is not something I have a problem with, so long as people are aware of the underlying problems in the text.
