Yet Another Reason I Hate Twilight

I went to to read some comentary on a play I had just read.

Look at today's online poll: Whose the best couple in fiction?

Bella and Edward (Twilight)
Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy (Pride and Prejudice)
Rhett Butler and Scarlett O'Hara (Gone with the Wind)
Dominique Francon and Howard Roarke (The Fountainhead)
Jane Eyre and Edward Rochester (Jane Eyre)

How the hell can Twilight be included amongst these works of classical literature? These are the only options we get? In all of fiction? Are you kidding me? This junk is even mentioned in the same breath? I can't stand this. YOUNG GIRLS WAKE UP AND READ SOMETHING WORTH WHILE!

  1. young girls wake up and read something worthwhile? do you really think that young girls would prefer to read or watch something from any of the titles you just listed from like a century ago? i'm sure they have never even heard of half of these. besides - this is how a new classic starts. it's too boring to re-live an old classic. time for something new. may be there will be a lot less teenage pregnancies because of the morals to twilight. well at least you didn't mention romeo and juliet because they were the most naive, impatient, lovestruck couple in history which of course ended horribly. anyways dont be so negative on something that has caught "young girls" attention that might be resulting in positive behaviors for them. thank you. by the way - you came off sounding kind of jealous and i think you should know thats how people are going to take you. no one is "kidding" you sweetheart.
