FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOU A HUNDRED TIMES!!!!!!
What do you gain by giving shitty reviews to beloved YA adaptations? You think you’re showing your smarts by condescending to teenagers? You think you’re proving how intellectual and discerning you are by dissing good movies simply because they are about teens? The only thing you’re proving is that you have no idea what you’re talking about when you compare Twilight to Vampire Academy or The Hunger Games to Divergent. You have no issues with one after the other Iron Man, Super Man, Spider Man, Cockroach Man, This Man, That Man (no Wonder Woman, btw), but you complain that “There are too many dystopian science fictions with strong female leads”. Hypocritical, much? (Your idea is that there can never be enough of movies that cater primarily to men, but when it comes to movies aimed at women, there can only be *one* franchise for people who like vampires, and *one* for people who like magic, etc.)
You know what you’re really doing here? You’re dragging down franchises that- 1. Have female leads, and female characters that tell young women that their primary function is not to serve as a romantic interest for a male, and that romance is only one of the many possibilities in their lives. 2. Pass the Bechdel Test with flying colours. 3. Portray sexual and gender minorities with respect and empathy. 4. Cater to the entertainment and intellectual needs of young people simultaneously. 5. Give young women role models of their own gender.
I’m glad The Mortal Instruments is getting a sequel no matter what you said, and I hope the same for Vampire Academy and Divergent. We need more movies about women like Clary, Isabelle, Rose, Lissa, and Tris, who represent what women are really like: a mixture of strengths and weaknesses, who have their own voices with which they tell their own stories, and have complex lives. In other words, we need portrayals of women not merely as the tits-and-ass object of a guy’s fantasies (I’m looking at you, Transformers). After more than 100 years of cinema, we are finally getting to see ourselves on screen. No wonder the hoary old farts in their ivory towers want to take it away.
"and what exactly is this song supposed to teach people? what is the educational value in this song?”
NOT EVERY GOD DAMN SONG IS SUPPOSED TO BE MADE FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES. THIS IS MUSIC. NOT FUCKING SESAME STREET. SOMETIMES MUSIC CAN BE MEANINGFUL AND DEEP AND SOMETIMES MUSIC JUST CAN BE ABOUT HAVING SEX, DRINKING, AND DOING DRUGS AND THAT IS OK. STOP TRYING TO MAKE EVERYTHING THAT MAKES PEOPLE HAPPY INTO SOMETHING NEGATIVE BECAUSE YOU DON’T LIKE IT. JEEZ GO OUTSIDE AND PET A DOG. JESUS CHRIST.
