“I know you’ve heard many different things in the last few years about Bella maybe not being a positive feminine icon.” (x)
feminist criticisms of Twilight are very valid but they often end up being just as misogynistic as the books themselves.
this is a good point and i’m not just saying that cause i’m literally obsessed w/ her
Valid feminist critique of Twilight: It’s teaching girls that the only way to be justified as a person is to in fact remain a half person until you are married and with child. Only then will you be whole. You cannot be a justified person without those things.
Misogynistic “feminist” critique of Twilight: Lyk3 OMG Bella is so dumb I can’t believe she’d just throw her life away for some freakish oldcolddude and how lame is she for crying and staying in bed for months wow what a weak anti social weirdo like she can have fun on her own just go to the club haveafewshotsanddanceyoubitch.
