One thing I've noticed in general is that anti's tend to make a pretty big deal out of the Twilight 吸血鬼 sparkling. I've seen people saying things like real 吸血鬼 don't sparkle, 吸血鬼 not sparkling was a fact, and that it was gay of them to sparkle. Okay, of ALL the things to criticize in Twilight, people are going after the SPARKLING? Seriously?
First off, at least where I'm from, calling something “gay” as an insult is considered really rude and distasteful. Besides being rude and homophobic, it's also generalizing and stereotyping. Just because something sparkles doesn't make it gay. I don’t know how anyone else feels about this, but I personally hate it when people use that as an insult. To me, it just makes the person saying it look bad, not the vampire in 问题 they’re trying to insult.
Next, 吸血鬼 don't exist, so 你 can't say for certain whether they sparkle 或者 not. Saying that 吸血鬼 don't sparkle is merely an opinion, not a fact, and 由 definition, an opinion is neither right nor wrong.
I've also heard people saying that Stephenie Meyer ruined vampires, and they seem to insist that "real" 吸血鬼 are like Dracula. I've read and heard of a lot of other 图书 where the authors have changed vampires, such as the House of Night Series, The Cirque Du Freak Series, etc., but I've never come across someone complaining about how they changed vampires, 或者 complaining that they ruined vampires. From what I’ve seen, people can and will always find something to hate about almost anything, and people making such a big deal out of the MeyerPires sparkling seems as though they’re just looking for something to hate, I mean if she'd made her 吸血鬼 更多 traditional, people would probably be complaining/accusing that she'd ripped off Bram Stoker.
Even if 你 don't like what Stephenie Meyer did with vampires, at least she came up with something new and somewhat creative. I mean, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and it’s fine if 你 dislike the sparkling, and I’m not trying to change that, but it just seems like such a petty thing to make such a huge deal over.
