i wrote a paper as a senior in high school about this and when tracking the unhealthy relationship symptoms i found this out too. fucking a.


THIS is a legitimate reason to think Twilight is problematic. Not “oooh, but it’s girly literature cause the vampires sparkle and all the teen girls are into Edward”. As funny as some of the sparkly vampires jokes are - and they really sometimes are - Twilight’s very unique take on vampires is the least of the series’ problems, yet this criticism gets heard a lot more than the criticism of people who have noticed that something isn’t quite right in the relationship between Edward and Bella.

I brought this up every chance I had when I was working with the youth theatre girls this summer. There was one in particular who was way gaga over Edward and how she wanted a boyfriend just like him, so I told her “Oh, you’d be ok with a guy who followed you everywhere, invaded your privacy, ignored your feelings, sabotaged your friendships, and isolated you from everyone you’ve ever loved? And nearly killed you on several occasions?”
And I literally watched the switch flip in her head.

my mom is dying laughing right now

It should probably be noted that, from what I recall, Bella is pretty abusive toward the dog dude. Can’t remember his name.

and it’s also hilarious because the same level of unhealthy abuse is transfered into the 50 shades trilogy (which from my understanding is a twilight fanfic?) apparently, from the bdsm community, they see the actions taken in the book as plain abusive as opposed to what they actually do. They respect eachother, they don’t literally have sex slaves.

Every time I had parent coming into store with kid to buy this I would always eyeball kid and ask parent if they had READ the series and were okay with it.  
If they said they HAD read it, go ahead, whatever. You’re the parent. but if they hadn’t…  then I would make sure they were aware of the creepy stalker aspect and indicate they MIGHT want to read it first before giving it to kid.  Most people still bought it.
and if they were picking up Breaking Dawn I’d specifically ask if they had read THAT one, just read the first one and went okay.  and mentioned the high level of squickness.  a fair number decided that this was probably NOT a good idea…

the worst is when you’re reading a really good book that follows multiple characters’ stories and you love it 90% of the time until it periodically switches back to that one character’s story that you just could not care less about and it’s like an entire chapter of internal groaning while waiting for the plot to switch back to a character you actually care about
