The reason Twilight disturbs me

****This is not a twilight bashing post, it only involves truthful analysis****

Although I liked the twilight books when I was reading them, I have now had time to really think about what happened in them and I find it extremely disturbing that these books are so popular.

Here, I’ll say it right out and then explain my logic;

Those books groom young girls to enter abusive relationships. 

The centre of the whole plotline is the starting of an abusive relationship.

      Case Point #1 – Edward watched Bella sleep even before he was in a relationship with her.

Okay, creepy but not indicative of a possible abusive relationship.  But along with the next two…

     Case Point #2 – He has to know where she is at all times, as well as whom she is with.

Every single talk show I’ve watched that has talked about abusive relationships mentions how this is an early warning sign.

and…..

      Case Point #3 – When he didn’t want her to go anywhere, he unhooked the cables in her car engine

WHAT THE HELL?!?!?

Why is nobody else creeped out by this?!

Everybody else who doesn’t like Twilight says stuff like “oh, vampires aren’t supposed to sparkle”

…that’s all?  You honestly don’t see the real problem here?  (I’m not attacking anybody, I’m just really flabbergasted that I seem to be the only one who can see this)

Well anyways, back to how this relates to young girls being groomed to go into abusive relationships.

Twilight is extremely popular, especially with young girls.  Although Jacob Black has his share of fangirls, Edward definitely has the largest group of girls in love with him.  Are you starting to see how this is a problem?  Girls everywhere think that Edward is the perfect guy.  Because the above three things are explained away as being done in the name of protecting Bella, girls just think they make him more ‘romantic’ rather than seeing them for the red flags that they are.  They read the books and think that, that is how a relationship is and in fact, that’s what they should WANT in a relationship.

It gives me the willies because it is actually like girls everywhere are being groomed to go into abusive relationships.

*shudders*

****Logical analysis done, the following may be considered Twilight bashing****

I found some awesome videos poking fun at Twilight.  They’re hilarious.  Here they are.

Quickie

I haven’t posted here in a while because I’m focusing so much on studying for my exam tonight but I thought I’d just make a quick post with two fan-made videos I love that have to do with Harry Potter.

First, the hilarious Harry Potter rap;

And now a parody trailer made with Harry Potter clips.  It’s a very cute Harry/Hermione video in a  weird, sort of twisted way lol.

And now another quote from “How to be a Canadian” It’s talking about the average 8.5 hours of sleep is spent by a Canadian.  It is particularly applicable to me;

“From our own estimates, this includes 5 hours and 10 minutes of actual sleep, 15 minutes of pillow adjustment, 10 minutes of lying still with your eyes closed while you wait to fall asleep, 25 minutes of tossing and turning, 30 minutes of longing for sleep, 40 minutes of thinking you will never get to sleep again, 55 minutes spent staring at the ceiling contemplating your own mortality and 15 minutes (broken up into three convenient 5-minute periods) of fitful sleep squeezed in between repeated bashings of your clock when the snooze alarm goes off, waking you up to face another day of being alive.  Hoo-ray.”
