    • "U R REEDING 2 MUCH IN2 IT!!1!" - I have only recited the plot and dating violence information. Perhaps stop to consider that you are actually repeating the pattern of dismissing critical thinking & abuse. In other words, maybe you're not reading into it enough! In today's world, this happens a lot. To truly understand the relevance of this material, it helps to understand that in the field of psychology, the real effects of media messaging on our behavior and self image are THOROUGHLY DOCUMENTED. Step 1: Do research. Step 2: Learn stuff. Step 3: Become a more informed/aware person. With a little practice, critical thinking can change your life for the better. (Proof: 1000s of sex lives improved with this channel...and all we do here is think critically).

Here's a good place to start your research on the media: https://ojs.lib.byu.edu/spc/index.php/IssuesInReligionAndPsychotherapy/article/viewFile/6/5

Now you have no excuses. :)

VIDEO SUMMARY: In this video, I address the immense popularity of the Twilight Saga in terms of the messages that it sends to its audience (mostly young women). I talk about how the characters of Bella Swan and Edward Cullen exemplify harmful gender stereotypes. Bella's character romanticizes being a submissive dependent woman. Edward's character romanticizes being a hypermasculine abuser. I then talk about how Edward & Bella's relationship is abusive and the ways in which people/Stephanie Meyer/the books dismiss and minimize this abuse (similar to how society in general dismisses and minimizes abuse). I talk about the dangers of these messages going out to a young audience of teens who are beginning to learn about what relationships should look like...as well as express my disgust & alarm.
