So I didn't really explain the whole backstory behind that rant the other day, but if you read my tweets from that day you can probably figure it out.
One of my best friends from high school who I don't see or talk to much anymore, mostly because she lives with her boyfriend and isn't around much, is going to see the movie tonight at midnight (shock! horror!). She told me. I said I should disown her. Discussion via twitter ensued. Basically I got pissed off and needed to rant.
So said friend just IMed me to tell me that she wishes I was going with her and her boyfriend to the movie tonight. I said I'd rather shove a spoon in my eye and I sent her my rant. Basically she didn't get it and I was trying very hard not to insult her and tell her that the reason why she didn't get it is the same reason she thinks everything with Twilight is okay. Very hard to do. Especially since I'm supposed to see her this weekend.
She thinks she started a fight, which she didn't. She wanted to know why I'm so passionate about my hatred, another reason why she obviously didn't get the point.
I told her it was having a negative influence on my life. She said just ignore it. I said I'd like to see you try cause it's FUCKING EVERYWHERE.
Apparently we need to talk more because last she knew everything was fine with me and Twilight. When I first read the books I didn't like them very much, but hoped that once I got through the first one they would get better. Well that didn't happen. But since then things have exploded and I've read more and more about how truly awful not only the books are but their influence.
Science fiction and fantasy are really important to me. I watch a lot of it, I read a lot of it and it's influenced a lot of the way that I look at life. Twilight and Stephenie Meyer's writing are a disgrace to the genre and will never stop offending me as a fan of that genre.
AND FOR THE LAST FUCKING TIME. I HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO JUDGE AN AUTHOR OR A PERSON FOR THEIR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS. PEOPLE DO IT TO ME BECAUSE I HAVE NONE AND I'LL DO IT TO THEM RIGHT BACK. I WON'T SUPPORT ANYONE WHO IS PART OF SOMETHING THAT HAS BELIEFS THAT I DON'T AGREE WITH. AND IN AMERICA THAT'S A LOT OF FUCKING PEOPLE.
And if you don't believe that read this: If I find out an author is a Republican or doesn't believe in evolution or is even a Red Sox fan I won't read them. And I have every right to do that, believe that and say that. THE FUCKING END.
I really need go watch some boys make out to make myself feel better. I hope this is the last time I have to talk about this for awhile. It's exhausting and really fucking annoying. Especially because I have no cigarettes to calm me down.
