yes it makes no sense to me either.

What happened was I wrote my rough draft for my onion article (which I am very proud of by the way ) and one of my examples of non violent material was twilight.

My topic was that non violent videogames are what made kids violent, but towards the end of the article I stretched it out to other mediums of violence that exist in the media. Towards the end I mentioned twilight, and how "fans were biting people's necks and drinking their blood." so yeah.

Anyway, today I got this reply from my teacher:

"Maybe don't use Twilight-- since it technically does have some violent aspects. Is there another popular nonviolent cartoon you can use instead?"

yeah I am just as confused as you are. How can a failure romantic novel like twilight have violent aspects? I never read it and never will so I really don't know what the hell she is talking about here.

So yeah, how is twilight violent and any suggestions for something I can use in its place?
VERY METAL!

I watched the film. There's a fighty bit at the end following the two hours of broody stares and general fannying around.

When sparkly guy jumps in front of a van to save the girl he met a week earlier, stopping the hurtling van dead in its tracks. The guy driving the van and any passengers would have almost certainly been killed. That and pedo-necrophilic sex causing the girls womb to burst open.

Wouldn't an easier thesis be that violent video games and media do not lead to violence in real life?
#14
It's more violent that things considered nonviolent, like pixar movies, I guess.

You should probably read the book or watch the movie before you use it as a source for anything.
It's a process, not an event.

Yea, it does have a bit of violence, a few fight scenes n such.

Btw Razor, your avatar went to the beat with the song I was listening to (float on - Modest Mouse).. it was just magical.

I used it because it was "popular" and thought it would be funny.

and yeah I sort of pride myself on not knowing much about twilight. I only know what I need to know. That Edward is basically a cardboard cut out of a person with less charisma than a moldy lemon.

also this is for THE ONION people, its supposed to be funny not serious

Twilight has dismembering, people's blood being sucked, physical fighting and destruction of many kinds.


I'd call it violent.


EDIT: You just like to be different because apparently everyone loves Twilight and god forbid someone be part of a crowd. I've read the books and seen the first movie. That information only aids me when I show people how terribly it's written and how bad the actors were.

I actually enjoyed the books and the movie. It makes me angry when people act like it's the best piece of literature since Gilgamesh though.

That's what they always say. But next another fantastic male character will emerge and Edward will become creepy and they'll be in love with this new person.

The violence is nothing.


tl;dr: Among other things, the books include pedophilia.


I really dislike Twilight, but I'm not getting the whole "Jacob is a pedo!" thing. The concept of imprinting is pretty weird, even for a fictional phenomenon, but as far as I can tell there isn't anything sexual about the attraction, it's more of finding your "soulmate" type thing. Think it's a concept used alot in the werewolf genre, though I'm not sure. Still, the pedophilia accusations are just stupid.


And of course Twilight has violence in it, even if it's pretty tame. It's about frickin' vampires! Even sparkly vampires kill shit ya know.

Not really understanding what the OP is looking for, what with "non violent videogames are what made kids violent". Really not any evidence of that I can think of, though I'm guessing this is a high school paper so you can get away with speculation np.

oh ok, so a satirical piece or something like that. Makes a bit more sense.
