Further, I’d rather have today’s teens reading about the dangers of oppressive governments and needing arms to revolt against them than daydreaming about being date-raped by the undead.

From Tam

One of my husband’s friends has three kids under the age of 12 (I think they’re all under 10 actually but I’ve never asked…).  He WILL NOT allow them to read the Twilight books or see the movies till he’s sure they understand WHY he doesn’t like them, and he doesn’t understand why its GOOD that an adult (who just happens to be 100’s of years old) gets the less under 18yr old girl, not just to chase and flirt with, but actually GETS the girl in what is blatant date-rape.   I’ve not seen the movies or read the books, so I didn’t have an answer for him, I have to admit that I’d assumed she was 18, and asked if she’d at least turned 18 before they got married in the last one.  He said he wasn’t sure but didn’t think so…..
