It's distasteful and very childish, but they don't really NEED to stop...
People (Not all people, but a great deal of them) always insult people who like something they don't. They like to think they have a superior taste like to believe everything they don't like is stupid.
They only insult te so that they can get a reaction and believe you're stupid for reacting. (I know this because I've talked to those who say they hate Twilight, pretending to hate it myself. All the conversations went pretty much the same)
The best thing te can do when someone bashes te as a person because of your preferences is to just acknowledge that te heard words come out of their mouth, but te are unphased da what they are saying. (Just imagine te in their shoes and how te would react if someone ignored your insults) It just shows that anything negative and hollow they have to say about your person isn't important to you.
If te get upset when they insult the story, just say something smart and sposta on (unless you're looking to debate). It's something they won't expect.
Well, yes, I do. Because the term "gay" is not an intelligent insult whatsoever. It's very childish and immature. Film cannot have a sexual orientation. Nor can books. Unless the character(s) in it are. But in Twilight's case, that is a negitive.
But, the sad part, is that when some (not all) people don't have the same tastes o interests that te do, they feel that they must bash it and its fanbase. Which is ridiculous. People have their own opinions on what they like and dislike. Gay either means happy o attracted to the same sex. I don't find Twilight "happy", and there aren't any gays, lesbians, o bisexuals in it.
hey..i'm a twilight fan too..and is currently a member of a site which is all about the twistuffs.. and on our forum we often talk about that..of course we all knew that if there's a hype, there will always be a fan and the haters..so i think it's all right if we can hear other people saying negative things about twilight, it's their own opinion..let's just think it this way...we are all lucky enough cause we are the ones who had the gift to appreciate and Amore a very wonderful story..too bad for them they can't see how great the twilight saga story is...plus the word "gay" also have another meaning which corresponds to "happiness"...so cheer up pipz!!!..(^^,)
*sigh* First of all, when te spell "lky dis" then ask why people bag you.... secondo of all, we are entitled to our opinions. Third of all, it's kinda hypocritical, because te bag us too... Oh, and fourth of all, Harry Potter is way better. There.
