I was as surprised as anyone to find myself falling in love with the Twilight world. As a mature and intelligent woman, I could see its faults and I even blogged about them, in my particular style. As a woman who has always gone her own way, I knew I was safe from being influenced by the values in the books that I disliked.

However, I feel I have been remiss in not discussing the dark side of Twilight with you; and I am not going to do that now because I just read a Freshly Pressed post that says it much better than I can.

I agree with most points raised in the essay apart from one thing: I don’t see anything wrong in telling teenagers that abstinence is okay. But then I would say that, wouldn’t I?

I recommend that you read the post and make up your own mind.

We say: Be romantic, turn out the lights
It means: I have flabby thighs.

We say: This kitchen is so inconvenient

We say: I need new shoes

We say: I heard a noise

It means: Take a nap.

We say: Am I fat?
It means: Tell me I’m beautiful
