metteivieharrison: In Defense of Twilight

metteivieharrison:

  1. We can’t attack Stephenie Meyer because she is rich.

  2. We can’t attack Stephenie Meyer because her book and the woman herself have moved beyond the real and have become cultural icons.

  3. What is wrong with girls having power to choose when they want to have sex?

  4. What is wrong with…

I agree with this so heavily. While Twilight/Breaking Dawn is not my favorite novel, it definitely has an audience. And Meyer does have a lot to say, just because her ideals and opinions are not mine does not make her wrong.
