I hate seeing little kids and tweens walking into work with T-shirts with the name on it! >.< It just makes me think of how they're growing up, what they think is ok, and the kind of awful abusive, manipulative, emotionally scarring relationships they'll be in. The guys would be able to justify anything they do because they did it "because they love them/to protect them/ for their own good." It makes me SICK!!!!! >8[
You don't know how bad that stuff is till you see friends dealing with it first hand. It's awful stuff.
Because it's totally ok for your BF to tell you who to hang with, when, cause you to hurt yourself, encourage bad behavior, and stalk you. That's TOTALLY ok. Oh and being obsessed with having sex with someone and having their child when you're still in High School.
That's just BRILLIANT! UHG!!!! IT's like the women's movement never happened!
Every girl's dream should be to have sex with a dangerous, mysterious, emotionally unhinged person, get pregnant, and married when they're a teen.
Sorry. I REALLY hate that book! It's a low-grade vampire fanfiction on the levels of what I read when I was in early junior high (no offense to you for being in JH. It's just.... I went thorough... a phase back then. =/) and I was obsessed with having a vampire boyfriend and a "dangerous romantic love that lasts forever." *starry eyes*
I LOVE fanfic but what I read then were (BeforeYourTimeAlert!!!!) Quizzilla quiz fics. This was low quality fanfic. Like REALLY low quality stuff.
Stuff like that doesn't deserve to be published in my opinion. But since people are looking for a reason to justify not thinking and making bad and easy choices so that they don't have to do anything or think, they ate this crap up!!!!
I agree. I did like the books when they came out, but granted I was not a young preteen who didn't know any better. But as soon as that fourth one came out... wow. I like to pretend I never read it.
But it really annoys me that that author is considered by so many to be an amazing author and gets compared to truely amazing authors.. ERG!
I am worried to have children because of the utter grabage out there anymore. I grew up watching PBS, reading books.. not watching all these young teens that are supposed to be role models, dressed like 25 year olds at a bar. what horrible images young girls are shown. =[
IKR?!?!? XD I love everything you've said! XD Sums up my argument almost entirely.
She's not even a good writer! She's only recognized because of the subject! Vampire Sex, and wanting to get laid. I mean seriously. I could write something on her level. Doesn't mean I should, or that I should make millions off of it. >:[ I hope she's doing the good Mormon thing and DONATING her money to starving children! :[
