    UGH that sounds like classic mormonism when spirits inhabit bodies and that bullshit and when the bodies die the spirits go to a distant planet and Elojim says 'What's up.' and they get to rule.

    Nevermind, that's a pass for me.

    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.

    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.

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.”

    There'll be several sequels. And they'll probably just get increasingly bad.
