Bella Swan is a character insert for Stephanie Meyer. She's pretty much writing out her own sexual fantasy, and Rob Pattinson picked up on that. While there is romance in the Harry Potter books, I highly doubt JK sat there and went, "Well, I'm Ginny Weasly," as JK Rowling seem to be an actual writer of fictions, not just a writer of seventeen year old girl's diaries.
also harry potter is not the asexual sex object edward is
the twilight movie was terrible the premise of the movie is the sexual fantasy of a writer acted out by terrible actors with down syndrome. The books are alright but if you have read them the movie is just funny.
Bella is not independent in any way, shape, or form. She's completely dependent on Edward.
Which is what I wrote, perhaps poorly. Hence why NOW (Nat'l Org for Women) should really be up in arms about this; there's no telling how many tween girls are being taught that the perfect man is obsessive and possessive, and that every demand of that man is to be met.

You've mentioned that about Pattinson twice now, do you have anything to back it up? I quick Google search didn't get me anything and I'd be interested to read it. Frankly while I agree with the quotes, I find it hard to believe that he'd speak out against (essentially) his employer.

Like some things about Edward are so specific, I was just convinced, like, ‘This woman is mad. She’s completely mad and she’s in love with her own fictional creation.’ And sometimes you would feel uncomfortable reading this thing. It’s kind of a sick pleasure in a lot of ways.”
