vangirl: (Van/Tear: Ew Cooties)
I've been reading a lot of Twilight sporkings and having a lot of thoughts about how I was okay with bashing the source but was very uncomfortable with bashing the fans. Lots of thoughts! That I had a tab open for three hours to try and articulate clearly.

But I think the problem I have with it boils down to "the bashing is very heavily gendered and it makes me uncomfortable".

And possibly also includes traces of "criticizing a misogynistic work by insulting the female target audience for being stupid enough to buy it in a society where there are so many factors that teach women to believe that unhealthy relationships are ideal anyway and then attributing said 'stupidity' to their gender is amazingly hypocritical and dangerously short-sighted".

...And there is also a small part of "I am a smart fangirl. Please stop using that word like an insult. 8(" But that also ties into the heavily gender-based bashing anyway.

So it all comes down to "Twilight fans are dumb cause they're girls" and I feel that this is not really the sort of thinking that actually helps anyone.


THERE. I CAN BE SOMEWHAT CONCISE AND SOMEWHAT LEGIBLE. Eat your heart out, Mrs. Meyer :B

Reasoning with Vampires is teaching me everything that I should've learned in my high school English class. You know, that class I slept through.
