*Sigh* It may just be where I live, but it seems like I'm SURROUNDED by Twilight fans. And by that, I mean the retarded, brainwashed ones. I'm a Twilight fan myself, but the majority of fans, and now the disrespectful author has me absolutely ashamed. If you truly like the book and you can act like a mature adult, that's wonderful. I greatly respect the fans who like that, I call them the true fans. But the "fans" who are pretty much braindead that are like "OMG TWILIGHT!!! I LOVE YOU EDWARD CULLEN LIEK OMG!!!" I DESPISE THOSE PEOPLE. They are what give Twilight a bad name. That, and Stephenie Meyer's attitude. The only thing that causes me to strongly and openly detest that woman is her arrogance towards other, GOOD writers. It absolutely infuriates me that she shows such disrespect towards who I consider the mother of vampire stories, Anne Rice. I adore Anne Rice. And she will always be far better a writer than Stephenie Meyer can hope to DREAM of being.
Sorry for the rant there. ^^;; But if you're a Twilight fan, do speak up. Just everyone be polite and no one be rude to each other. And everything should be fine. After all, we're all here to discuss Twilight INTELLIGENTLY, whether you like it or not.
But I know one thing for certain. Twilight is definitely brainwashing people. That's all I can say. It's just like brainwashing.
I like the new genre of vampires. The show, Angel, started it all. Yes that was a spin-off of Buffy, but Angel took vampires to a whole new level. I haven't seen Twilight or read any of the books, but I am seriously looking forward to it. As far as the bashers are concerned, let them bash. They did it with the Harry Potter books and movies and look what it did for the popularity of them.
Yes - i genuinely do. Because there are loads and loads of Twilight people who are insane and read it and spaz out all over the internet - then there is everyone else. And everyone else just gets pissed off at the Twilight fans, because of their crazyness, and hate Twilight because of them.
First of all, are you talking about the people on fanpop or on fanpop and outside fanpop
I always thought about this. I think its like 50/50 really. Many people love it and hate it. And I am not just talking about this site or spot, it seems that a lot of people hate it. I mean for goodness sakes, theres a twilight sucks.com and many anti-twilight vids on the net and articles of why people hate the series. But also the twilight fan girl mania is huge! At the moment, I think mmost people love it, but a lot of people hate it. Its hard to tell really...
As with everything there are always those that don't like something others do, that's life. However when you get people publically expressing these things which when you think about it isn't necessary. Twilight isn't for everyone as we well know, however twilight fans seem to accept this and twilight haters don't. Ok so you don't like it, that's fine, but there is no need to be horrible about it/to people that do.
On this site you even get twilight haters being mean on the fan spots...the clue is in the name, you don't like it you don't join it that's the idea.
So I think no, there aren't more of them, they just express it more :)
Sorry for the rant
i personally love twilight but im not obsessed and im not a hater. i think that after they finish all the movies (which are terrible) the backlash will be over and the series will go back to its original popularity but i still wont be able to think of edward without thinking of stupid robert pattinson.
Propably. But, personally, I think there is more stupid people in the world than intelligent people. I mean if you try to have a logical conversation with a Twi-hard about why you don't like Twilight. They'll freak out. It'll KILL THEM!
I think that's where it's headed. There are alot of people who have read the books and didn't like them and normally would just say "Okay, this is a bad book." and move on with thier lives. that's not possible with Twilight, because it's EVERYWHERE! I think that the crazy fanatics drives people to "hate" it when they would normally just "dislike" it. It also think that people don't get why everyone is making a big deal over something that isn't that good. Personally, I'm somewhat offended that all teenage girls are expected to like Twilight. I said that I don't care for it in class once, and all the girls looked at me as if I were crazy. It's like Twilight isn't something that we can all have an opinion about.
I believe when there was all the hype surrounding Twilight like when it first came out and especially when the movie came out it looked like it has a huge fanbase, but the hype seemed to die out during these two years. Personally, I think Twilight has two cathegories of both fans and haters: immature ones who insult anyone that doesn't share the same opinion and actually interesting and well spoken people who have a point. And unfortunatelly, the immature ones - both fans and haters - seem to be more loud and active. So it's really hard to say whether Twilight has more fans or haters. Online fandom doesn't define all the pro and anti Twilight people.
