    some disturbing things it implies to the astute:

    its noble and good to supress one's true self if it goes against the grain of society. its admirable to abstain from sex and other temptations if you're naturally inclined toward what is considered a sinful deviancy. families can thrive and love abound through such self-supression, abstinence, and resistance of sinful temptation. you can be a 'vampire,' just don't act on it. icon_sad.gif

    i read study discussion questions in the back of my copy of the first Twilight book that prompted these kinds of ideas- seriously, look for yourself. its scary- i just hope no one else notices icon_eek.gif

    i obviously vehemently disagree with these ideas- but you have to admit, they're there in the book and movie. icon_sad.gif

    I think it's safe to assume that straight guys will never be used in teen movies LOL!

    I think you're reading to deeply into the story, it's about a vampire that falls in love with a human. Instead of treating people like they're lower life forms equivalent to a cow for the slaughter, they abstain from inflicting harm upon them. Makes sense that Edward would abstain from drinking the blood of and, ultimately, killing Bella, a person he loved.

    The lesson I get from the movie is that you shouldn't live in a way that brings harm upon the people around you.


    Then again, you can make up any analog you want to nearly anything, if you try hard enough.

    All I know is that when I was dragged along to see it I felt very uncomfortable in the middle of a theatre where all these teenagers were ovulating over the damn movie. The only thing I got out of it was two hours of my life that I want back.
