It's all silliness right?! I mean WHO in the heck would wait in line for thirteen hours this past Wednesday and have specially made "Team Edward" t-shirts just to see the silly 12:01am release of Breaking Dawn?
**shyly raises hand**
Oh yeah, Me. I did that. I hate to admit that I am one of those girls - I mean, I am an adult after all. I can pay my bills and kill spiders and do all sorts of adult-like things. But for some reason when I am sitting in the theatre with my best friend I turn in to a squealing, giggling, uncivilized, thirteen-year-old girl and I can't help it.
And I am not the only one. There were hundreds of females from ages 5 to 75 in line, flocking to see Edward and why? Because they want a man who is in charge like him.
They SAY "I want a boy like Edward who is a vampire and who can read my mind and sparkle and be perfect in every way." (unrealistic expectations much??)
But what they MEAN is "I want a man who is in charge and in control like Edward. I want an HOH"
I think pop culture unknowingly encourages DD relationships - and it's funny to me. People hear of DD and think "what?! That's crazy!! I would NEVER want that in my relationship!" Yet they swoon at stories that have aspects of DD.
I want an HOH like Edward. But if he doesn’t run fast, sparkle, read my mind or want to suck my blood, I am okay with that.
What do you guys think? Do you see elements of DD in pop culture??
