    Yes it is. Luckily, it is a great tool for us. Allow me to explain:

    If I guy likes Twilight, he is gay. Straight up. I'm not talking about the "ghey" gay, I'm talking about the "I love giant penis in and around my orifice" gay.

    If a girl likes twilight, its the only warning sign you need to steer clear of her. She is either overly insecure with an unrealistic and hopeless idea of what love is, or she is an attention whore and is just jumping on whats popular in an effort to seem "cool" (obviously she is mildly retarded as well, thinking Twilight is cool to begin with).

    So, when you meet a gay guy your just going to first thing your going to know is that they love twilight?
    Thats really stereotypical.

    And who was the douche bag who voted "Nah it deserves it"?

    Umm that's not what I said. I said "If he loves twilight, he is gay" not "If he is gay, he loves twilight." Two entirely different things.

    I agree, though I must add this should apply to people who are Twilight fanatics, and not people who enjoy or derive a mild sense of entertainment from it.

    Care to explain this, Mr.rockstar?

    Anyway, I shall direct the Steph haters to this:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Host_(novel)

    I like Twilight. And I'm a guy. Although I'm not a fanatic who wears Team Edward t-shirts around the streets, please quit whining about Twilight. How many threads have I seen about this kind of stuff?.... A lot. C'mon guys, some people have different tastes, so don't whine because your tastes don't match theirs.

    OverHyped? Yes
    OverRated? No

    Its good, I enjoyed it, go ahead CrimsoniteX call me gay, Doesnt change the fact i have a girlfriend or such? idc

    The books were amazing, the movies not so amazing, ill give all of you that.
    The Books brought out a new idea on vampires, and developed them into something else, You cant say its wrong, cause they never really existed, so what the hell do you know?

    Anyways.

    I read it, liked it for a while. Then actually thought about it and realized that everyone was right. It's a poorly written book series.

    Staunch hater here for 2 major reasons and a myriad of others.
    Firstly, I will admit that I have not read "the Host" but the whole Twilight saga is very poorly written, and while the fact that she appeals to the 13-16 female agegroup, which is actually impressive, is a good thing (a lot of girls I know stopped reading at that age), the ammount of press she gets for is ludicrously over the top.
    The other main problem I have is that it is not good literature, and should never be considered as such (not my opinion but the technical knowledge of several literary critics that I have got in contact with through my aunt, who happens to be a journalist [​IMG] ), yet people who don't read very deeply will think it as such, and then are likely to get put off by real literature, like the Aeneid (real literature with an insane amount of political and cultural undertones littered through the whole epic) or Inferno (the effects this has had on modern culture is immense, and it's actually really interesting enyway). I don't mind if people read the books, but they are in no way as good as lots of people make them out to be.

    Please, do read The host. It may change your mind about Steph being a "horrible author".
