At least you have to be able to read to like Twilight

Getting tired of hearing criticism of Twilight and general Çhik Flik books/movies. Not because they don’t deserve criticism(they do), but I often hear it expressed as ’one of those stupid woman things.’

Here’s a shocking report: Men like plenty of stupid things too. Many of the most colossally stupid things ever created are primarily enjoyed by men(WWF, plot-less violent/gross humor/special effect movies, cock/dog fighting, internet gaming culture, etc). And while these things are described as stupid on occasion, the reason why they’re stupid rarely seems to be ‘because men primarily like them’.

Once again, men are the normal ones. Women need to be explained.

Also, I once again have home internet access. Yay!
