My friend recently informed me that I am lame and no longer worth her time because I am a “Twilight virgin”. I guess I probably shouldn’t tell her that I’m really not ignorant about it and that—gasp—I tried reading the first book and I could not get past the first 5 pages. I think she is crazy being unreasonable about her passion for the Twilight series and movie of the first book.   It’s really surprising to me that for once I’m not one of the intense fangirls that fawn over something as popular and big as Twilight. Is that a sign of maturity? If it was, then tell that to the women over 40 who are just as passionate about Twilight as their younger counterparts. Maybe I’ve just lost that part of me that used to bounce (literally) over like, the new Harry Potter movie or something of that nature.   I don’t have a problem with Twilight series/fans or for that matter anything that’s just as popular. But I do have a problem with people who keep pressuring me to at least like the series. Jeez, can’t I just live my life without fans hounding me to become another fan? Can’t you just accept that maybe, just maybe, there IS a young woman under 20 years old who isn’t excited about hot vampires?   Having said that, I’ll return to my island now and hide under a rock where people can’t throw harmful projectiles at me.   – Allyson
