I'm an unstudied feminist; I never took any women's studies classes or anything like that because I was already getting pussy in college. JKJKJKJK. But seriously, even without much in the way of book-learning on this subject, I can intuitively see where Breaking Dawn specifically could be damaging for young girls. I mean, the way Bella is categorically opposed to artificial insemination-- there's no explanation for that whatsoever-- is troubling in a psychological impact sense. But maybe some of you actually ARE studied in a book-learning sense and could make that a little more specific for the rest of us.
I don't know if there's a feminist angle to put on the ongoing battle between Ashley Greene and her haters, but there is certainly a humanist angle to it. I mean, what the fuck is with these people? This week, war erupted between the haters, and Ashley Greene obliquely dissed them (and maybe Demi Lovato) in Teen Vogue.
Meanwhile, I found a strange article about how Twilight helped someone reach (dubious) clarity regarding their rape fantasies, and Kristen Stewart was rumored to be playing just about everyone. Bad news and good news, you know? Above is one of the two stills of Kristen Stewart in On The Road released this week; it looks good! I'm pretty much in favor of Kristen Stewart being in everything. I don't know how this relates other than the fact that Kristen Stewart was once also rumored to be in this role, but I read today that David Fincher wants to use a topless photo of Rooney Mara as the poster for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. On the one hand, I'm generally always in favor of nudity, but on the other hand that seems like a bad idea.
Anyway, there's a lot to discuss, probably. Thoughts? (Last time: Catching Up, While You Were Out Edition)
