4. Bella is a domestic diva.
She cooks for her bachelor dad every night. (Okay, I guess cooking is technically a hobby. But she doesn’t do it out of joy, really. It’s more out of a sense of obligation.) Bella does laundry, too. But I think we only see her do homework once. See, she’s too busy feeding a man to stop and feed her mind. There’s nothing wrong with cooking for a man, but doing it in tandem with constantly getting saved by a guy and worshipping said guy…it's just too much. At least Belle in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast loves to read, right?

But! I am not saying I didn't enjoy the book at times, and that I wouldn’t have swooned at 13. I just worry that some people will read it without a critical eye (I know, it is just a story). Some girls might expect their love life to look just like Bella's. Now that’s what I call scary.
Do you agree or disagree? Is Twilight evil and brainwashy, or did I just go crazy on a harmless piece of fiction?
