    Kcullen, something else you missed on the responses to the HP thread was the intricate knowledge of world mythology and obscure allusions that JK Rowling put into her books. Adults love them because there's a LOT under the surface. I don't think most kids would know that the rival wizarding school "Durmstrang" is a reference to the Sturm and Drang movement in 18th century Germany, for example. And I don't see why my intelligence can be questioned because I read a book that alludes to that kind of stuff.

    It's not your cup of tea. Fine. Just say THAT. Fantasy isn't usually my thing, either, except for HP and the Song of Ice and Fire series.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Air your Grievances! : Wow the IVF thing was a WHILE ago.  And I was talking about IVF in that thread thanks, and how some people might HAVE to use it, and how some people would HAVE to use a sperm donor. Sorry if you felt it was out of place but I know many others felt it wasn't. <strong>And I'm sorry I talked about gay people in it, but um I'm gay so I was talking about myself. I can't really discuss me and FI and get around that subject.</strong> As for the Childrens' books comments, I didn't see anyone call me on it, I don't recheck threads500 times a day, and if someone had an issue with it, sorry, it's how I feel.  I consider them children's/adolescent literature not to mention big gross cash cows.

    I feel like there's an accusation here, but I don't want to jump to conclusions and start something unnecessarily.  Are you insinuating that I have an issue with gay people because I criticized your approach to an issue (not the issue itself, which -- for the record -- we agree on) in one thread?

    [QUOTE]Cullen- The other day you said "I'm so sick of this crazy "Christians" and their irrational hatred of homosexuals. I know they're just internalizing their inability to accept their own same sex attractions and therefore lashing out at those of us who can, but really, grow the hell up or shut the fuuck up." in regards to the gay-bashing school board guy ( link for anyone who's interested ).  I feel like I should set you straight on this. 1.  <strong>Not all Christians are crazy, nor are they all homophobes.</strong> 2.  There are plenty of non-Christian homophobes in this world. 3.  Not all homophobes are closet homosexuals who are just frustrated.  There are plenty of irrational reasons to hate someone without secretly wanting to be that person.
    Posted by betrothed123[/QUOTE]
    1. Agreed which is why I put "Christians" in quotes as I wasn't refering to the whole lot. 2. Agreed again, I ranting in relation to this man who is "Christian" 3. also true, but there's been scientific studies in which they showed homophobic men getting arroused when show risky images of other men.

    I was really cranky that day, so my apologies for the rant.

    [QUOTE]When I read, its only Dexter books and trashy romance novels. I read for pure enjoyment of hearing a story. I guess that makes me an idiot. Go figure.   I don't like HP or Twilight, but I don't judge people who do. Taste in literature and art is a very personal thing. kcullen, the judginess is what is being called out, not your opinion on the books. And if the merch gets kids to read, so be it. I remember having a Sweet Valley High Trapper Keeper, and a Babysitters Club backpack. Both were book series that I really enjoyed and having the merch only reinforced it and made me more excited about reading more. 
    Posted by SarahPLiz[/QUOTE]

    I LOVED the Babysitter's Club books, both series. I read Sweet Valley too, but primarily Babysitter's Club. I always wanted to be Kristi, but connected more with Mary Anne.

    Not at all, just explaining why I mentioned gay people in that thread. I dont' know how you feel about us, I haven't seen anything to give me the impression you have an issue with me because of that part of me. So thanks for asking before making that assumption. Sorry if my post was unclear, I'm now juggling flames.

In hindsight, I made a severe lapse in judgment and at some point I started getting defensive because, well, I don't know, I was just being generally grouchy and dumb.

    See, this is the Mara I "know" and like. To me you have always been a down-to-earth, intelligent and funny poster and yesterday's MC threads just seemed so out of character for you. (Of course this is all based on what I know of you from an internet forum etc etc etc)

    I didn't even know that. Very interesting. I do know she did put a LOT of work into those books, though, which to me, makes them that much more impressive.

    Oh, and I get what you're saying about the rehashed ideas and all that in The Da Vinci Code. I think I was a teenager when I read it and not all that worldy. It was an interesting story at the time. Who knows if I would still love it, now. I could re-read it to find out, but I don't really want to.

    I get aroused when I see risky images of women, but it doesn't mean I'm gay or even bisexual. It means I think the female body is beautiful and I desire another human in a sexual way.

    [QUOTE]Twlight is delicate ground for me when it comes to menfolk.  Because first I thought RPatz was hot but then I realized that his version of "tortured and sensitive" translated to "emo and stalker-ish" in the movies, so then I thought that Jacob was hot but then I remembered he's like, 12, and I fully expected Chris Hanson to show up at my door with a camera crew all "WTF, lady".  So then I thought Emmett was hot, but the actor's name in real life is Kellan and my little brother's name is Kellen and I'm sorry, but that's just gross.  And Jasper's hair in the first movie ruined anything having to do with him for me going forward, and that pretty much leaves nobody.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Air your Grievances! : I am glad that I was well into my late 20's when Emo became cool.  I dont know if as a teenager I would have been able to deal with that.  In high school I loved the uber-alpha males.  If everyone was emo it would have been slim pickings for me.

    Same here. But on the plus side, I probably would've been a virgin for a whole lot longer :P

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Air your Grievances! : So you still believe that all homophobes must be closet homosexuals.  That's awesome.All your "studies" prove is that some homophobes are gay. You can't apologize for something, while simultaneously defending it and expect that apology to be taken seriously.

    No, I said also true as in I agreed with you, then mentioned tha study, and made no mention of it applying to ALL homophobes

    Choose Your Own Adventure books were the greatest things ever.  I fully admit to cheating if I picked a bad one and died.  I'd go back and choose the other option instead.  And immediately feel like someone, somewhere would know I cheated.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Air your Grievances! : I couldn't get through the Dan Brown books but Charlaine Harris, much like Stephanie Meyer, is entertaining to me even if it is poorly written. The basis for the story is interesting, it's the execution that is lacking (in my opinion).  Harris's characters never really evolve over time and just get stuck in the same situations over and over again. But I can read one of her books in a night and when I'm really stressed out I like to read about how pretty Eric is and how oddly funny Pam is.

    I think my biggest problem was I read the whole series in about a week, so half the book was repeating the prior book (because I'm assuming normal people don't read them so close together maybe?). But I'm all for reading about a life that isn't my own and not affected by stupid politics or this busted economy.
