WHY?!

Why do a lot of teenage girls see Edward Cullen as a “Knight in shining armour”?

Due to my recent girlfriend being a twilight fan I've had to grit my teeth when she quotes the book and talks about how “Dreamy” and “Strong” Edward Cullen aparently is.

Theres a shit load of stronger more attractive heroes out there.

Just look at spiderman.



What man doesnt want to be spiderman?
Not you. Thats who.

Most teenage girls and fans of Meyers craptacular novel have no sense.

Atleast Spidey actually has shining armour.

Eh, I like his abilities well enough, but Spiderman as a person is kind of a wiener half the time. He's only vaguely less of a boy scout than Superman.

Now, Batman, he's a hero. I mean, he doesn't even need super powers, he's just that bad ass.

oh Twilight girls, how they amuse me. How they confuse lasting love and respect with sexism, manipulation, and stalker tendencies.

Personally, seeing how hard it is to completely redeem a twilight fan, I do my best to turn them to Buffy the Vampire Slayer. If you think about Twilight, really all it is is Buffy with all the good parts ripped out.


Not only does the main female character actually do something but she's actually not a terrible role model for women

Then you compare the romantic interests:

Both are dark, mysterious, but ultimately sensitive guys. The difference is Edward is wimpy vegetarian creeper, and Angel is a vampire ridden with guilt after nearly 200 years of eating people and then cursed to bear his soul alongside being possessed by a demon. (oh and he burns to death in sunlight rather than sparkling)

The difference: one is actually a character worth developing.

Also, Spike.




So the point is, if your girlfriend must have a vampire fascination, at least introduce her to something good.

Which one was Edward again? The vampire?

Well, I'm sure you've all seen that poster floating around the internet - some girls just can't help but feed their inner desire for necrophilia. There is help for it though.

I agree. And the thing about Buffy is that the vampires are actually a threat, so the romance between a human and a vampire in the Buffy universe is a lot more risque.

The freakin' Twilight vampires SPARKLE. That's their terrible secrect. It's that kind of stupidity that girls are going crazy over, and giving other girls near that agae a bad name.

A quick fix would be to bathe yourself in glitter.

…or dump the chick that can't get that abomination out of her head. Trust me, a twilight fan? You can do better.
Those were my two cents.

For some reason girls are obsessed with these wimpy sad men that need to be comforted. I don't understand why the love for a man's man is gone now!

I think I will blame anime for doing this…

“Twilight: The gripping saga about a girl torn between necrophilia and bestiality.”

I will confess that I DO like Twilight (movie), mostly because the first time I watched the movie was with the Rifftrax. I've never being able of take that thing seriously after that. It's a parody of how whinny the genre could become.

The book is so poorly written that it feels like bad fanfiction. It's pretty funny, but not as much as the movie.

Too bad that it ruined what are some pretty cool villains, but Vampires where getting pretty annoying since Anne Rice took on the genre.

Aaaaaawwww, c'mon… Everything I know about manliness, I learned it from anime.

What's this?! Comic fans pouring scorn on Twilight fans?!

A certain phrase concerning pots and kettles comes to mind …!

There is a difference between the two (Twilight and comics). One of them is actually…entertaining/fulfilling to read. I'll let you decide which of the two.

Manliness in men has fallen ever since it was decided for some reason that moustaches were bad and that men should be clean cut.

See: Metrosexual.

True, there are manly anime characters, but I feel like they kind of died out after a while. Most of the super masculine anime/manga I can think of on the spot are from the 80's and early 90's (including Hokuto no Ken).

I feel like even the shonen manga (JUMP etc) have become super wimpy tortured emo guys. I miss the good old days of City Hunter!

So you're saying that through that logic, you could combine the power of mustache and sparkles to create the ultimate manly man.

Experimentation is required.

Take one muscled up, mustache man…


Add glitter…




MY GOD!!!


IT'S BEAUTIFUL! T.T

We all know the movies are bad, edward is bad, bella is bad (I could go all night like this). the movie is so infamous that people (in my town at least) don't call it by “twilight” they call it “the vampire movie”. And still, Meyer must be counting bills on his desk right now
