In the spirit of Halloween, and the spirit of pure fun, I'd like to create a discussion about the Twilight franchise under feminist scrutiny. As someone who has only indulged in viewing the film, I can personally only remark on the plot as it has been presented to me. I know that this topic is not only popular, but also very fun to debate with friends, and we're all friends here ;).
So under my lens, I am seeing a male (Mr. Cullen) who is over a century old, who is infatuated/in love with the teenaged female (Miss Swan). The character of Bella seems to be an awkward, shy and unsure character who latches onto Edward, frequently commenting on his physical appearance. Are they making objects out of each other?
What do you guys think about Twilight and Feminism?
