Twilight Sundry

There I was, minding my own business (which is an occupation not so much outside the law, just a little ahead of it) and suddenly this cop busts me***...

...I run into another anti-Twilight review that talks about squealing teenage girls and their bored, stay-at-home moms and how it’s their fault that the world has been infected with Twilght mania.

*takes a deep, deep, breath*

Whenever I read something like this, I think, by association of ideas, of the billion-dollar comic book franchise in all its testosterone-powered, misogynistic glory (the creators of Wonder Woman were not thinking of little girls when they were designing that costume); and another successful fanchise based around a boy hero whose author was de-gendered so that little boys won’t be horrified they were reading a woman’s book (Quelle horreur!). And I feel freaked out, pissed off and sad.

But mostly just sad.

***Dani, P.S. I Luv U. Please don't tell me, flist, that I'm the only one who remembers/has ever watched this show.
