I appreciate you logical process, but unfortunately, I have met such people. In fact, the reason I posted in this thread for the first time today was because some of my guy friends were reading through my tabs while I was in the forum and happened to click on this post. Discussion ensued, followed by mockery, posters went up on lounge walls, women protested, hence my example from earlier. Dorm life is strange in that manner, I suppose.TheShadow wrote:I was speaking from real world practicality, and I still highly doubt I could ever find a man who hates twilight because they feel objectified by Edward (or wish they were him, but cant be).
@ Erica: Who said they are better? A critique of Twilight's morality standards is not a direct reflection of the author's personality. Perhaps if we all viewed criticism for our manuscripts less personally, rejection via query/partial/fulls would not be the painful process it has become.
@ Nick: All opinions aside, try to keep in mind that this is a discussion forum and name calling should be done only when the self is out of rational arguments. Attack the opinion, my dear friend, and not the person. And though you, my good sir, may be a Twilight-dislike and may even know others who equally dislike Twilight, unfortunately (and statistically) you are not a complete representation of rest of the male population. Specific cases do not represent the general population, and I'm sure you are not acquainted with all men who have read Twilight.
To all, as there seems to be a fondness for Twilight in this forum: Whatever your personal opinions may be, I will have to say that I am convinced that Twilight is not ideal literature. You are free to disagree with me, and vice versa. I am not going to dig through Twilight to find a specific proof or otherwise; it's simply not worth the time. At the end of the day, you will still believe what you believe and me what I believe. Does anyone still have an issue with that?
