Awesome / Mark Reads Twilight

Go To

  • At the end of Eclipse, Mark's criticisms turn into an all-out attack on Stephanie Meyer for the racist, misogynist and flat-out offensive views portrayed in the saga thus far; and it is undeniably awesome:
    Racism. Transphobia. Misogyny. Sexism. Xenophobia. Homophobia. Classism. It's the worst of the worst. It's like a buffet of all the terrible things that hurt this world and directly affect those who are oppressed by these institutions, by the minorities who lack the privilege that a rich, white, Mormon author exerts on a daily basis. And, at heart, that's what a lot of this book felt to me: A person who holds nearly every privilege in the world (no male privilege, to be fair) rubs this in our faces at every single moment she can.
    You aren't a real woman. You aren't a real man. You aren't worthy without a nice car. You aren't worthy unless your skin is white. You aren't worthy unless you believe in God, in marriage, in traditional gender roles, in the subjugation of the woman to the man, in everything that makes ME a worthy part of this world.
    Fuck you, Stephenie Meyer.
    Because on top of all of this wankery and bullshit, you cannot fucking write.
